Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may have reached their shelf life, and though brand new, may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Retailers sell these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Why is the screen is still black after I changed the battery whats next? Garmin gps nuvi2455


Make sure your new battery is charged. Start with the device turned OFF & disconnected from ALL power sources.
- Note: to make sure the device is NOT in standby mode (instead of OFF), press & HOLD the power button (for UP TO 60 seconds) to see if there is a prompt to turn it off.

Press & HOLD the lower-right corner of the touch screen (not the frame)
Continue to HOLD the screen, while switching the power ON.
- You SHOULD see a message on the screen about "clearing user data" after several seconds.
Once you see that message, you can RELEASE pressure on the screen and touch the YES icon.

The device should now Reset. Following any prompts that may appear, and then take the unit to a CLEAR area so that it can find the satellite signals. This can take up to 15 minutes after a reset.

My sons psp has a black screen


Without a functional screen, the PSP doesn't have much of a purpose. If the power light next to your screen is off as well, all your PSP needs is a good long battery charge. But if the power light is on and the screen is still dark, a few quick troubleshooting steps can help you get to the root of the problem. If troubleshooting doesn't work, you will need to contact Sony eService through its support site, particularly if your PSP has recently been dropped or had liquid spilled on it.
Step 1Turn off your PSP. Remove the battery pack. Replace the battery pack, making sure that it is securely inserted. Turn the PSP back on. If the screen is still black, continue to Step 2.
Step 2Press any system button. If the backlight is turned off, pressing a system button should reactivate it. If the screen has turned back on, go to the PSP settings menu. Select "Power Save Settings." Select "Backlight Auto-Off." This option automatically turns off the screen if the PSP has been idle. If you do not wish to have this feature active, select "Off." If this step did not solve the problem, continue to Step 3.
Step 3Press the screen brightness button below the screen. This button is marked with a small donut-like icon. Pressing the button will incrementally increase the brightness of the screen. Holding down the button will turn off the backlight. It is possible that this button was accidentally pressed down after placing the PSP in a pocket or a backpack. If the screen remains black after the brightness has been increased to full, continue to Step 4 if your model of PSP is any but the PSP Go.
Step 4Open the top hatch on the PSP. This will eject the UMD disc. Only touch the UMD at the edges, as fingerprints can interfere with the disc's functionality. Clean the surface of the UMD with a clean, dry cloth. Do not clean the UMD with water or any other chemicals. If the disc looks scratched or damaged, this is likely the cause of the screen issue. Additionally, moisture can condense on the UMD if the PSP has undergone a recent temperature change, such as being brought into a warm house from a cold car. If the UMD looks wet, turn off the PSP and allow the UMD to air dry. Wait several hours before trying to restart your PSP.

Screen is frozen


TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen when the batteries are changed so that it appears as if the calculator isn't turning on. Turn the calculator on (or at least press the ON key). Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible.

If that doesn't do it, reset the calculator. Press and hold the lef-arrow, right-arrow, and 2ND keys, then press and release the ON key.

If that doesn't do it, remove one of the four AAA batteries. Press and hold the ) and (-) keys while replacing the battery. Continue to hold the two keys down for at least five seconds before releasing them.

I couldn't take anymore pictures because "the memory card was full." I downloaded the pictures and the card is now empty. Now when I turn the camera on, the green light is on but there is no image on the...


Go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. Remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on. If it now works, with the card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the instructions to erase the card and optimize it.

Screen goes blank and it says chg in small letters on the right lower side


Actually, "chg" means "change" in this case. Since this is a solar watch, it is not necessary to change the battery. I let my watch sit in the dark for a few months and I came back to the same screen when I dug it out of a drawer. Simply allow the solar cells to get some light to recharge. I left the watch under a lamp overnight because I needed a stopwatch in the morning, and it was charged by the time I woke up. Also, this watch has a power saver function you can turn on and off. If the watch is left in the dark for about an hour, the screen will turn off but the normal functions will continue in order to save power..

My lg vu has a white screen with a folder and a red circle with a exclamation mark and says emergency download an i cannot do anything only way to turn it off is to take the battery out


PLUG YOUR PHONE INTO THE CHARGER WITHOUT THE BATTERY. PUT CHARGER IN AND OUT OF PHONE WHILE CHECKING IF THE SCREEN HAS CHANGED. DO THIS UNTIL SCREEN CHANGES (TAKES ABOUT 5MINS MAX) TO THE MAIN AT&T PAGE. NEXT YOU HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON AND AS SOON AS IT BEGINS CHANGING SCREENS CONTINUOUSLY PRESS THE CALL BUTTON. THE PHONE SHOULD BE BACK TO NORMAL AFTERWARDS. THE ONLY THING IS ONE OR TWO BUTTONS MAY WORK DIFFERENTLY.

Camera will turn on and then turn off, while screen continuously flashes


I have had this problem with both a DSC-P72 and a DSC-P92 (same camera but 5 Mega pixel1.gif) They do need real good batteries, when the camera shut’s down I can run MP31.gif players or flashlights with those batteries for quit a while before those devices are dead.

I was traveling overseas once and installed “fresh” carbon batteries and the camera wouldn’t work at all. I had no photos on that trip until I found some alkaline batteries.

I even have bought 2 “dead” cameras1.gif to find that they work fine with REALLY GOOD batteries. So try it again before dumping the camera.
