Will not switch on with new batteries


I wonder what batteries you use? The best would be two AA rechargeable NiMH batteries. But a new CR-V3 lithium battery should work also.
When you have rechargeable batteries, you should check if they are charged. And when inserting, check if you did out them in correct. Only the CR-V3 is protected for inserting it wrong. when you have two batteries, you can put them in the wrong way. Then, if you did not use the camera for a long time, please make sure all contacts in the battery compartment are clean and shiny. If not, try to clean them, with a clean cloth. Never use anything sharp in or close to a camera. Contacts, could be rubbed with a little electronic contact oil, but the oil must be removed afterwards. As strange as it may sound, even the contact oil can be cause of oxidation on contacts.
When the batteries are in, make sure the battery door is correctly closed.
If you checked everything and you are sure the batteries are in correct, just try switching on and of several times, by opening and closing the lens barrier. Also while the lens barrios is closed, press the play back button on the back side of the camera. If both don't work, then again the batteries are under suspicion.

Camera will not turn on. Changed batteries, sd


Hi,


Check whether your batteries are actually making contact with the battery posts, and that these posts are clean. If not, bend the posts up/down a little, and maybe clean them with a little rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip.The next thing to try is examine both the battery and flash card door. There's usually a little switch on both doors (note some SD card doors do not have this switch) that activates when the doors are closed. If they don't, the camera won't start to prevent damage to the flash card or camera startup sequence. For most cameras its usually a little piece of plastic on the door that pushes in on a pin switch when the door is closed. Closely examine both doors to try to identify these switches. A lot of times that little plastic nib wears down or breaks off, but can easily be jury rigged with a small glued-on replacement.
If you've tried all of the above and still no luck, the problem is then likely to be internal to the camera. One example would be that if your camera uses Compact Flash, check to make sure all pins are present and aligned in the card slot (if bent, simply unbend/straighten them with a skinny "jewelers" screwdriver, then insert the flash card for final realignment).

Thank you!

Wont switch on - aa batteries are new and in correct polarity. button battery new correct polarity.



Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Problem started with battery door


The door has an interlock on it. You probably broke the door. The door on some of these cameras can be replaced from the outside. You must make sure the interlock switch is not broken as well. The tabs on the housing of the camera can get bent or snapped off if enough force is used.
A broken door will be $75 there abouts, installed.
A broken detect switch, adds about $45 (A board).
A broken case may set you back an additional $75

Kodak digital camera M1073 IS


First make sure that the camera has fresh or fully charged batteries installed. If a battery swap or charge doesn't cure the problem, remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Compartment door will not shut properly, camera will come on


Drill 2 tiny holes, large enough to insert thin paper clip wire. One hole is drilled in the battery compartment door, close to the sidewall but in between the 2 adjacent batteries.
Drill second hole in battery case by first peeling back the ruberized coating slighty. This hole should be adjacent or sighted in line with the first hole. In each case, allow enough in tact plastic door or case so that it can withstand the pressure of a tightened piece of wire. Insert batteries. Then insert wire carefully tto penetrate both holes. Press down hard on battery compartment door and carefully twist the 2 ends of the inserted paper clip wire to secure the compartment door tightly. The one drawback is that each time you wish to change batteries, you will have to follow the above procedure.Don't know of any recalls on this condition.

Fuji S3100 Broken Battery Latch


There are two potential solutions that I know of, but only if the broken tabs are on the door and not the camera body. Double check which tabs are damaged.

The first involves getting a new door somewhere (good luck with that... Fuji doesn't seem to sell the parts to civilian consumers... you might try getting the part from an old non-functional one on ebay or something). The trick to removing the battery door is to push the door's hinge pin (with the door open) towards the back (LCD side) of the camera from the opposite (front) side. There is very little clearance. I have successfully used a paint can opener to do this on a S3100. You can brace the back side of the opener against the lip of the camera body and push the pin out. Once it is as far out as possible, use needle nose plier or tweezers to grip the now exposed end of the pin and pull it all the way out. Then put the new door in place and re-insert the pin... there may be a little resistance.

The other was recommended to me by a camera repair man, but I have not tried. I would probably have let him do the work, as it seems a little risky, but possible. It basically involves getting a small washer that will fit under the two latching tabs near one another on the body. After figuring out the correct position for the washer to be attached to the door that it will just slide under the tabs and secure the door, you must use a small countersunk screw through the central hole in the washer to attach it to the door. You might have to remove the rim of the door in that area with an exacto knife or something similar so the washer will fit well. Like I said, I would have probably let him do the work, but it sounds like it would work.

Another idea that just occurred to me is a little more work intensive but would probably work would be to sink a (coarse thread) screw through the door all the way into the plastic of the body (maybe 2 or 3 in different places), which could simply be unscrewed any time you wanted to change the batteries with relatively little trouble.

Good luck! =)
