P120 will not turn on

I have a P120 worked great until last week it would not turn on thought it was the Battery but no. When i plug into the mains the charge light does not come on. Have taken it to a camera shop and they have quoted me silly money for a quote!! Has anyone had the same and could tell me a fix? or is it a case of biting the bullet and buying a new one?

Your camera needs a new button board, or a new system board. Sell it online somewhere popular to recover some of its worth. Usually about 20-40 dollars broken.

Try removing the batteries then either plugging your camera in with the AC adapter or the docking station. Try cleaning the contacts from the battery and the battery compartment of the camera.If your camera works with either one of these then you have a problem with either the batteries or the battery contacts. If your camera doesn't work with the AC adapter then you will have to send the camera in for repair.

Kodak easy share digital camera m863

I have a Easy Share M863 and have had it less than a year. It was working great and then last week I tried turning it on and it would not open. I thought it might be the battery needed charging so I did that. It still will not open. I contacted Kodak and they told me they would give me 15% on a new digital camera. That is not what I wanted. My camera is not even a year old. It should have lasted longer I think.

Samsung S630 camera says "low battery" then shuts off

This camera needs rechargeable batteries usually lasts about a week with much use. I thought what a waste of batteries then tried these rechargable and the situation hasn't occured . it is probably because it is small digtal camera which uses alot of power.

no problem. your rechargable is not strong enough for this camera. i use rayovac rechargeable from wal-mart and the batteries have to charge for two full days and make sure the light on the charger is off before removing the batteries from the charger. then put them in the camera and it will work perfectly. your batteries aren't strong enough for the camera. go out and get some energizers made just for digitals. they last forever but, they'll do until you get your rayovac rechargeable recharged. and coming right out of the pack they are not charged give it 48 hours and they'll last weeks.

USB divice not recognized

I tried many ways to fix the problem. Someone suggesting unpluging it for 30 min. That didn't work. I downloaded the latest version of the camera driver. That didn't work. I downloaded the latest version of windows, and that didn't work.
I was running out of ideas. But I thought I might try restoring my computer to a prior date. This restore feature hasn't worked for me for 6 month. But, that day, luck was on my side.
Since I restored my computer to two weeks ago. My problem, is fixed!

Camera will not turn on

I think the heat did it. If you read the instruction book, it most likely has a page that says no excessive heat or cold. If you bought it a week ago, take it back to the dealer for warranty repair.
