Camera will power-up only when connected to DC

I can not get my camera to power-up to take pictures use using battery power. The camera is dead unless I have it connected to the charger via direct current. When connected to DC the camera works fine. I have checked to make sure battery power is fine. I have taken it to National Camera exchange ...technician shrugs shoulders and says don't know what to tell you... but I have a great camera over here......

I really like the this camera but needing a long extension cord is quite unweildy... what should I do? Send it to Sony begging for help? or buy a new camera? any ideas?

Panasonic lumix dc vario can't download pictures onto computer


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

My batteries went dead and camera shut off. Now I


if the camera wont turn on remove the memory card and make sure your pictures are transfered. Try using regular disposable batteries. Also when trying to turn it on try holding down the power button for 5 seconds. If it still doesnt turn on coud be a broken switch connection.

My Kodak Easyshare V1233 will only power up when plugged into the wall charger. Even after staying on the charger it will not power on unless plugged in.


Kodak has 3 types of charger that can be connected to a wall socket
USB AC Adapter - is especially useful when traveling, away from your computer, or just plain on-the-go. Connect your camera's USB cable to the adapter and plug it into a wall outlet to conveniently charge your camera.
5V AC Adapter - Provides in-camera charging for all KODAK EASYSHARE M and V Series Digital Cameras
Input: AC 100-240 V 50/60 Hz Output : DC 5.0 V
3V AC Adapter - Provides direct power to your camera but it will not charge the camera battery
Input: AC 100-240 V 50/60 Hz Output : DC 3.0 V

* You need to check the type of adapter your using. If your using the 5V AC adapter or USB adapter and the camera won't charge the battery contact kodak support line 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK) for possible repair.

I purchased the camera in April of 2007, but have only taken about 500 pictures. Today I turned it on, and when I tried to take a picture, the message "change the batteries" came up, and it went dead. I...


It is likely that an internal integrated circuit in the DC/DC board is damaged. Either an electronic component just is worn out, or moisture or humidity affected the camera. You can try with a different set of batteries (different brand and type) since such DC/DC converter board has a monitor circuit of the battery level, and when the components of it start failing, gives a wrong battery level to the micro-processor. If after try other batteries you have the same problem, then you will need to have your camera reviewed by a qualified technician to have it repaired, since it requires open the camera and evaluate the DC/DC board performance.

Camera will not work


Using the wrong cable can certainly damage a camera.

You don't say what "inoperable" means. I have sold and serviced many digital camera over the years. Dropping a camera will often result in damage to the lens assembly causing blurry/distorted pictures or the lens will not extend or close.

If the camera is completely dead or fails to boot then you probably used the wrong cable or connected it incorrectly and fried the internal electronics. This particular Gateway/Samsung camera can be fried if you connect or disconnect the USB cable while the camera is power on.

Sounds like you owe your friend a new camera.

Power cord and battery's support NO power to Video Camera


This incident happens often and damages the camcorder's power board. Replacing power board and some adjustment should resolved the problem. Your cost may run from $175-$225 in US for this model. Whenever you are transfering and connecting to pc, it is recommended to connect AC adapter power for this. Do not rely on a charged battery. Good luck.
