I jsut posted on this same problem. If you can playback a tape and see the picture, but can't see anything on the camera, the camera has a stuck iris assembly. It is caused by the iris actuator (a small motor like device) leaking oil on to the two slippery sheets of plastic that slide over one another to act as the iris. A good tech can pull the iris assembly out of the camera and clean it, but some techs will only do what Sony recommends, which is replacing the lens assembly (very expensive)

My Olympus SP-570UZ doesn't turn on.


On top of the monitor is the monitor / viewfinder button. Little right from the centre, you can press that one to switch between picture in the viewfinder or on the monitor.
It also can be your batteries are old and can't be charged to the required charge. Or even when one is not ok, the camera can't work as it should. Try new batteries. And Olympus wants you to use only NiMH batteries. Alkeline batteries may have a much shorter service time. AA manganese batteries are not allowed in the camera and NiCD won't work at all.
When using new batteries, don't forget to charge them before use.

As a last option, it could be something is defect in your camera. (I hope not) When something is broke in your camera, or something is blocking, the current could become to high and damage the camera. Or if a gear is defect, it could cause extra damage in the camera. In all that kind of occasions the camera could play safe and not switch on to full operation.
If nothing will bring back the light on your monitor, the only thing to do is contact your dealer, and if repair should be to expensive, start saving for a new one. Sorry.

My brand new samsung s760 camera wont turn on


Charge for 1 hour.
Pull battery's and see if they have power.
If Power is good Make sure they are in correctly
If Dead Replace battery's. ,

The only other thing it Might be, You said the Camera was New, But if the battery's hold a charge the Battery Door might have lost it's Contacts and the battery's won't work without it, It may have been returned to the store before you got it..

The monitor display is black, I want to view the shot I am taking with the monitor not the viewfinder.


Rotate the Live View switch located just above the circular multiselector.

Full details are in the "Live View" section of the manual (beginning on page 37 in my copy).

My camera nikon d3000 suddenly stopped working...the lcd has no display,and even the viewfinder...it happenned today..it was so sudden..i was clicking pictures and suddenly it stopped working


Try resetting the camera by removing the battery for 15 mins, replace the fully charged battery, go to the Menu setting and set the Date and Time.
If it still does not work then - this camera needs to be sent away for repairs. Just like a motor vehicle, some repairs to your camera require a technical specialist to fix your problem.

Not turning on


The battery may have gone bad, take out the camera battery if possible, clean the battery contact points with a dry cloth, try charging again for an hour. Now start the camera and see whether the cam has the same problem? Else, you can get a replacement battery on ebay for cheap.

Olympus E300


Hello Kate, See if you can find an internet cafe. I was reading the white balance section of your manual and there is nothing that stops your camera from taking pictures if the white balance is off. Turn your camera off, remove your batteries for about 30 seconds and let it reset to default. Then try inserting the batteries and see if this helps. I wouldn't mind sending you this manual if you can provide an email address. Or a link to go to is: www.olympus.com, then select americas, then select support, then select your camera, then download your manual in PDF format. I wouldn't want your vacation ruined either.
