While you say the battery is OK you do not say how you know that. Most camcorders can be run off the AC adapter. If this is the case plug your AC adapter in to the mains and check the output with a DMM on VDC for the proper output. If you don't have a meter you could borrow one from a friend or buy one. They are fairly inexpensive now and even a cheap one is good enough for this job. Besides, they are handy for a lot of other duties. Read the instructions but basically set to Volts DC, 20 volt scale and place red wire on the inside of the power plug (which connects to the camera) and the black wire to the outside of the barrel. If you have the correct voltage (it is listed on the data plate of the power supply)you are probably OK. On occasion I have seen units check correct for voltage, but when hooked up the voltage drops. This is rare. and If you have the correct voltage your unit is probably OK. Check the voltage of the battery. If it is correct(the battery voltage is listed on it somewhere)then it is holding a charge. If both the battery and AC adapter check OK you have a problem with the camcorder. If you are handy with tools, have a set of jewelers screwdrivers (they can be purchased also and are fairly cheap), a set of magnifying glasses and lots of patience use the screwdrivers to remove the cases of the camcorder. When you get the cases off look for ribbon cables which are loose or out of their connectors. If you don't find any you probably have a problem which is beyond your repair capabilities and you will need to take it to a reputable repair facility. Good luck.

My pentax Optio 60 camera wont turn on what do i do?


First verify the battery is ok, that would be the most common reason, you can get batteries on eBay for a reasonable cost, if the battery is not the problem replace the camera, the cost to repair is outrageous.

My camera is from Digital Concepts. I lost the botom cpver of it because it broke off.i pit in batteries and decided to put tape of it so they wont come out. I try to turn it


But it does not work.
Every battery cover of a camera has a switch, powering down the camera when the cover is opened. This is to prevent damage to the memory card. You should not remove batteries while the camera is writing to the memory card.
Find the little switch and press it. Then try to switch on.

My Canon Rebel Sii wont take picutres


And the battery is still ok? See the LCD display.
When the battery is almost empty, it won't be able to charge the capacitor in the flash, and the flash can't fire. The camera protects the shot, because if the flash was needed, the shot would be much to dark.

Changed batteries in a coolpix l110 and cant get anything to work. No power and lens wont retract. tried everything in manual thus far with no results.


What type of battery did you use with your camera? Is the type your L110 support? Seems your camera use AA batteries, but not all of the AA battery which can put into your camera is OK. many cameras only support Li-ion battery or Alkaline batteries

My belt broke and now my car wont start why not?


Ok. If your car was running and then the belt broke and you continued to drive it. The case may be that you drained the battery because the alternator runs on the belt and the alternator keeps battery charged and if belt broke and you continued to drive then you may need to jump start vehicle. I guess I shouldve asked earlier but have you replaced belt yet?

Ok my mom just plugged the camera into the computer to get some pictures off of it and it wont turn on!!! we tried the batteries and plugging it into our computer again. Why wont it turn on?


Did you use the "safely remove hardware" command at the bottom of your computer screen or did you just pull out the cord? Remove the card and battery from the camera...press all the buttons...leave the camera alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on. Let me know if it works.
