    I can view what is on my camera no problem. When I turn the dial to take pictures I goes dead. I use the rechargeable batteries which came with the camera. They are fully charged but still nothing. If I put them in the charger for 5 min. it will work. If I inset brand new batteries it will not work. Very frustrating.

    I try to turn on my camera and the green light flashes quickly but won't turn on. I have cleaned the battery and am debating whether to get a new battery or just take camera to the reapir shop. Before it started doing this I would take a picture then the camera would just turn off until the point it is at now where it will not turn on at all,

This could be any of hundreds of different faults so I'll give you the ones you can check yourself. One or more of your batteries are faulty. The battery contacts are dirty. The batteries are inserted wrongly. You have a problem with the lens mechanism. Shake camera and listen for anything rattling around. If metal it could short anything out. Check your troubleshooting chart in your user's manual. Google for "Panasonic Lumix LZ2 problems" Is the power switch feeling as if it's actually switching. Has the camera been dropped or given swimming lessons. Check all your switches to make sure nothing is disabled. Apart from these it's impossible to say what's wrong. A trip to a repair shop may be in order.

Often when something like this happens (as in my case)the camera was working fine, then it wasn't. Here's what I did. It seemed as though my original battery (almost 4 years old) was the cause. I charged it, but the camera would not activate. I ordered a new battery and fully charged it. To my dismay still not working. So, I fooled around a bit. Holding the camera in front of you with 'KONICA' to your left. Now, open the lens cover from the right bottom, pressing just as bit as you open it. This is all it took for me. It came to life, I got the blue light and the lens deployed and the camera is working just fine. Who knows, maybe a 'widgit' inside was a tiny bit sticky..

Try taking the batteries out and cleaning the ends of them off with a cloth...then blow inside the camera where the batteries go. I did this with mine and the thing turned right back on !

Posted on Feb 17, 2007

Try taking out your batteries and then taking out your memory card. Put back in batteries. Turn on camera. If this works, just put back in your memory card and try again. Sometimes the memory card hangs and you need to pop it in and out.

    Thanks to you, I did it! For months now i couldn't figure out why my camera no longer turned on. I dusted off my Lumix, took out the memory card, popped the battery back in, and wah-la....it turned on again! Thanks for the advice!!!

Mike, this is an issue with the DC converter in the camera which converts the batteries voltage into several regulated supplies for use by the camera. Return the camera the Sony Laredo and let them know what it is doing, some of these repairs are being done under warranty concession if you raise your voice a bit. Good luck with this.

SOURCE: Camera DMC-FZ20 fails to turn on after having a

Assuming that the new battery you tried was the correct type for the camera and that it was fresh/fully charged, your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

If your panasonic camera uses a panasonic battery and you try to use a different brand equivalent battery, some panasonics will not work. Could that be your problem?

Camera wont turn on even after switching batteries.


Have you checked both batteries for voltage. Connect to the USB and leave it for a while, see if the Flip shows any sign of life. If it does both batteries may be flat or there is a bad connection to the battery in the flip. If no sign of life on USB then I'm afraid it is faulty and you will have to dismantle it to investigate unless it is still under warranty.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

I have the same problem- got this response from Sony (within 33 minutes of sending my email!)

Thank you for contacting Sony Support.
I am sorry that your Konica Minolta Camera does not turn on with the battery. I suggest that you try with different battery and check the operation. If the issue still persists, turn if off, remove and reinsert the battery, or unplug and reconnect the AC adaptor.
If the issue persists after following all the steps service will be required. You can find repair information and initiate service at:
http://eservice.sony.com
TIP: Be sure to change the "Product Company"
radio button to indicate Konica / Minolta.
Thank you for being a valued Sony Customer.

You have to try another battery to know for sure if it is bad. I have three batteries so that I can rotate while I am working with the camera.

Could be either. If on switch on again the indicator is full and you get more work done then its a camera fault. If when you switch on again the battery remains flat then this could be the camera fault too the flash capacitor showing signs of distress. On the other hansd the battery could be nearing the end it useful life. How much is a new battery?

Try taking the batteries out of the camera for a few minutes, and see if that helps to "reboot" the camera.
