Question about GE A730 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera Won't work at all

I put new batteries in my camera, I push the 'on' button and the camera starts to take pictures by itself. It will take anywhere from 1 - 10 pictures before it either stops and turns off, or stops and won't let me push any buttons. Every once in a great while it will turn on without taking the pictures but again, none of the buttons work. I have tried to replace the batteries, take out the memory card. Nothing works. PLEASE HELP!!!!???? My kids are growing and I can't capture it...

Pentax optio w80 waterproof digital camera won't turn on


I had the same problem. I checked the voltage first to ensure it was greater than 3.7V (some batteries were not). I left the door open and pushed the battery down and pressed the button and it powered up. Seems to be a problem with the contacts. I put about 6 layers of duct tape on top of the battery to cause the door to push it down and now it works.

You push the button and it will not take a picture. I put new batteries in it and it still will not take a picture.


My HTsi Plus never seems to be able to Auto Focus on a subject, so when you push the shutter button half-way, it just flashes the focus indicator (telling you it is unable to focus). Try switching over to the "Manual Focus" mode. On the front of the camera there is a button labeled "AF/M". Push that button to switch to manual focus. If the camera is in manual focus, the external LCD screen will say "M.Focus". Now try to snap a shot. If that still does not work, there may be something wrong with the camera or the lens. So, try using a different lens in manual focus mode. If it still does not work, then I would say the problem is with the camera itself.

The camera will only take pictures on one or two of the setting from the top, when you turn the clicker on the top of the camera it will take a picture, when you go to shut the camera off with out pushing...


I understand you issue as; the camera only takes about 1-2 pictures and then it shuts itself off.
This could be a direct result from using the wrong battery type

Please make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher).

Thank you

After plugging into mac it will not turn on or get anything up on screen, completely dead


I just had this same problem happen to me. I was able to solve it by doing the following. I'm not sure if all of these steps are necessary, and I suspect not, but this is everything, just in case.

1. Take out battery and memory card. Hold down power button for 15 seconds.
2. Plug in camera dock, put the battery but NOT the memory card into the camera, and then put the camera in the dock.
3. Push the PHOTO button on the dock. The camera should beep once. If there are any pictures saved on the internal memory, they will show up.
4. Disconnect the camera and it will turn off.
5. Put your memory card back in, and put the camera back in the dock.
6. Push the PHOTO button a second time, and scroll through a few pictures to make sure you are able to access the ones on your memory card.
7. Take camera out and turn it on. You should be all set.

It's possible that you really only need to do the last 1-3 steps of this process, but in any case, this got my camera to turn on again. Hope the same works for you!

Fuji Finepix E550. Camera working O.K. midway after 18 pictures whenever buton was pressed to take pictures the camera shuts itself off. Batteries new, able to view pictures taken but cannot now take...


Thanks for your prompt reply. The problem has been solved!!!! I put in new batteries and the camera is functioning normally.!!!!!!! It seems the batteries in the camera were old ones and not fully charged. I think its safer to put in new batteries than to use recharged ones !!!!!!
Anyway, thank you once again and have a Happy Christmas.
Gratefully,
Ken

Camera not functioning


Sometimes these batteries go dead but still show a charge in the camera but it is not enough to do anything with. I suggest you go to the nearest camera shop and see if they can check it for you.

Not turning on and has strange smell


Powershot A640 Could Not Be Powered On, Burnt Smell

My Powershot A640 died during a picture shot, lens remaining open. I thought it may be due to the dead batteries. But after putting new batteries and pushing the on/off button, the on/off indicator blinked once then shut off by itself. After a while, a strange smell came from camera batteries area, and I could feel warm there too. Immediately I took out all the batteries from camera.

When checking the posts here the other day, I tried one solution and got the lens back to close: first took out the memory card from camera, then put the new batteries in; push the on/off button with no memory card. I found the lens retracted a little before camera shut off by itself. I pushed on/off button three times to get the lens fully close. However, the burnt smell came out again. I immediately took out the batteries.
Did I get a short circuit inside? Is there any ways to fix it?

CAMARA turns off when i press to take a photo


I have the same camera... and it was doing the same thing AFTER i changed my old batteries, because they were getting low. It was only after i put in the NEW batteries that i had this problem... I tried putting the old batteries back in and sure enough it worked again, so it probably all just depends on the brand of the battery you use.

Nikon coolpix L4 won't take pictures & turns off


I have the same camera & personally, I hate it. My camera does that all the time, sometimes, it takes a while for the picture to actually take. Try holding down the button for a while, that's what I have to do with mine. The camera sucks up all the battery energy with only a few picture takes which I really don't understand. I think that's also why it's cutting off while you're using it. Does the phrase, "Warning: Batteries exhausted" sound familar, especially right before the camera shuts off? Oh, & before I go, my personal advice to you is: Get a new camera. I don't even know why I bought mine, soon I'm getting a new one. Yay. I hope this helped you, sorry about the camera problems. Much luck! :D
