How do i restart my camera?

Everytime i turn on my camera, the shutter closes a couple of seconds later, and turns off the camera, even though the battery is fully charged.

Some cameras do this when a series of errors occur. If the batteries are fully charged I would recommend checking for the memory card. Newer, larger cameras do not have any on board memory and must have the memory card inserted before it will function. Depending on the camera, most will fully extend the zoom and then retract back to normal. If your camera is not doing this, it could be a ceased part in the motor. Look for an error message on the screen or listen for a series of beeps. Some manufacturers list codes for your model camera on their respective websites.

Can you list brand and model?

Display not working, power button LED turns on blue for 1 second and won't turn on again

Have you tried checking with another monitor. Meaning that if the second monitor does not come on then the problem is with your computers mother board. But if the monitor other monitor you check it with comes on then of course it is your monitor.

My hp touchsmart310 PC will switch on but there is nothing on the screen ?

You can perform these steps even though the screen is blank.
  1. Turn off the computer, and then remove the power cord.
  2. With the power cord disconnected, press and hold the power button for five seconds.
  3. Reconnect the power cord, and then turn on the computer.
  4. Repeatedly press the F10 key about once every second for five seconds after turning the computer on.
  5. Wait five seconds.
  6. Press the F5 key. This restores the default settings of the BIOS.
  7. Press the Enter key. This accepts the changes.
  8. Press the F10 key. This opens the Save and Exit window.
  9. Press the Enter key. This saves the changes, exits the BIOS, and then the computer restarts.
  10. After the computer restarts, the screen should display the HP logo.
Hope it helps!

I dont want to look at the No HDMI Cable Message after the computer shuts down. Is there a way to make the screen go blank more quickly. Or do I have to watch the message scroll across the screen for 10...

A couple of options. First and cheapest, you could turn off the monitor. Second, for about thirty to fifty dollars, you can pick up an energy saving surge protector. With this, it has a main plug, and switched plugs. The switched plugs cut power when the main item is turned off. I.E. PC turned off, monitor, speakers, printer all turn off a moment later.

I bought a new LG Monitor, W1946S, a couple of days ago. First time I used it after connection it worked fine, since then it is in Power Save Mode when switched on and stays that way. If I press the...

Firstly take it straight back and change it, if its a hardware issue then you want it changed sooner rather than later when it might run out of short term warranty.

Secondly, be sure that the vga/dvi cable is plugged in securely at both ends, it has to recognise the signal from the pc to turn its monitor on and start displaying. But change the monitor and fast!

My screen is shaking every second or two second! Even though I restart it, my problem persist on and was not solved.

You either have a graphics card going south or a corrupt driver or an incompatible resolution setting.

Monitor won't stay on


It bothers me, when a user comes to a Fix It web site like this and I have to suggest you send it in for warranty replacement or service.

But, we can check a few things first just to be certain is isn't the circuitry turning itself off due to a problem on the power or signal board. First look at the back cover of your panel for a pull out or unlock release to relese the back panel that covers the power plug and VGA socket. Remove that if needed. Examine where the power plug inserts and the VGA cable attaches onto the flat panel chassis. On the power plug, see that it is firmly inserted. I'm almost certain you've checked this already but when you have it firmly in place do you notice any wiggle room or wobble of the plug in its socket? If so, that would be a problem of the mount to the power inverter board. Next, check that the VGA cable is firmly attached by using a small flat head screw driver to tighten down the cable into its plug. Then, remove the VGA cable and check each pin on the plug to see that there isn't a loose one or one that is bent. If you find a bent one, do not attempt to starigthen it yourself. Take it to a tech shop where they have tools for this.

If both the the power plug and VGA socket seem fine, lets examine the function of the power button next. This is what we call a momentary on/off push button, meaning you momentarily close a circuit when you push the button and this impulse energizes the power to the panel or de-energizes the power board. You want to check that this momentary button is not sticking in, but fully releasing. You can most easily assure this is this case by flicking the button. Push in on the button from the edge using your fingernail and letting your fingernail slip over the button. If the button appears to fully extend back up when you do this than it is not sticking in the down position and the monitor is not turning itself off as a safety feature.

Your monitor usually is turning itself off as a safety feature when after turning it on it turns off a few seconds later. It does this to protect itself and your investment. So, if after doing these things you find no irregularities, let me know and I'll assist you in getting warranty service.
