Try pressing the reset button on the back.

Also, try cleaning the contacts on the games. Push back the sleeve on the game and clean good with alcohol. If this doesn't do it, unplug it, and clean the contacts inside the unit with a qtip.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Vtech kidszoom camera changed batteries turned it

Probably not, I have fixed several digital cameras by doing this. This is for a GE E1235 but screws and other stuff shouldn't be hard to find.

Well I decided to fix it my self.
1st: Take out all the screws (7 total) one is hidden under the av out cover. Make sure u mark all the longer screw heads and location with a marker so you know where they go. There were only to sizes so if you mark the longer ones you should be ok.
2nd slowly pull the back of the camera back (BUT BE CAREFULL, do not pull to far there are wires from the LCD and buttons to the camera.) Now there is a little tab on the main board holding the wires from the LCD to the camera. Flip it up and remove the LCD wires. After you do that push the LCD wires back in and flip the tab back down. Be careful not to damage wires or tab. Put case back together, put screws in where they go, and wallah. Your camera should work. If not try again, and make sure your properly putting wires in. If it doesn't work email me I will be making YouTube video for this soon. REMEMBER TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE YOU CAUSE!!!

SOURCE: We have a vtech vsmile and it will not work

We had the same problem. Put alcohol on a q-tip. Pull back the plastic sleeve on the Smartridge (game) and clean both sides
of the metal contact. Insert the Smartridge into the Smartridge slot and remove quickly. Then insert Smatrige and turn on the power.

I did this to all of the games and now it works like new!

Hope this helps!

There are problems with the power adaptors. Did you use a VSmile power adaptor, or something that just seemed to fit the unit? Using the wrong power adaptor (like unknowingly plugging a Leapfrog power adaptor) into the unit can cause damage to the Vsmile Board.
Push and hold the power (smile) button for one minute, then install fresh batteries. if it powers back up, then try:

Dirty Smartridges (the game cartridges) are to blame for about 90% of VTech Vsmile products not powering up.
In some instances, the cartridge slot on the unit itself can become damaged and will cause no power up.
Kids (of all ages) can dirty a smartridge in less than a second, and render the whole system dead.

What type battery for powershotA480


Your camera uses 2 AA batteries, but if you use Alkaline batteries they will drain very fast. You are better off buying rechargeable batteries as you can recharge them several hundred times, cheaper than Duracell or Energizer Alkaline batteries in the long run. If you buy rechargeable batteries make sure you get a high mA capacity the higher the mA which stands for Milliamp Per Hour the longer the battery will last in terms of a charge.

Red battery light even with new batteries - then shuts down


Your camera can work with 2 AA sized batteries.
Always charge NiMH batteries before using them for the first time, or if they have not been used for a long period.
Always charge sets of batteries together.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In most cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
AA manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries and NiCd rechargeable batteries cannot be used with this camera.
If you are sure you have good batteries, also check if all contacts are clean and shiny. No oxidation is allowed. To clean contacts never use sharp tools. They can damage the camera forever.
Eventually clean contacts with a cotton swap or a dry cloth.
Also check if no debris is in the battery compartment. Just a little pice of paper can spoil all the (camera) fun.
Just to make sure, try some other batteries, then the ones you are sure of, they are fully charged. Perhaps, next time you are less convinced.

Just bought a second hand Canon Powershot SX100 IS.


Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

My Canon S2 IS keeps saying 'change the battery' even if I put the new batteries in. Why...? Thanks.


there is a little coing battery located inside the battery compartment for the AA's. CR1220 you can get this at Radio Shack for about $5. If this battery is bad you will get the change batteries screen no matter how many fresh AA's you put in, Use a good quality alkaline battery such as the Energizer rechargable rated at 2700 mAh.

Canon PowerShot A85


I decided to send you this from the Canon website to see if this helps: 
Issue: What are the specifications for batteries that I can use in my camera?
Solution: Recommended AA batteries for your camera.

What types of AA batteries can I use? Canon rechargeable (NiMH) batteries For the best results, we recommend using Canon rechargeable (NiMH) batteries. Rechargeable batteries provide the best performance and are the most economical choice.
battery_charger_kit_cbk4_300.jpgThe Canon Battery & Charger Kit includes a battery charger and four rechargeable AA-size NiMH (nickel metal hydride) batteries. The battery kit can be purchase from the Canon eStore.
AA alkaline batteries AA alkaline batteries such as those from Energizer or Duracell will provide the best performance for non-rechargeable batteries.
  • ALL AA-based PowerShot digital cameras (including A Series and S5 IS / SX100 IS-type):"Never use manganese (non-alkaline) batteries."
  • Since the performance of alkaline batteries may differ according to brand, the operating time of the batteries you purchase may not be as long as the batteries that came with the camera.
Precautions:
  • Camera operating time may shorten at low temperatures when alkaline batteries are used. Also due to their specifications, alkaline batteries may expire faster than NiMH batteries. If you are using the camera in cold areas or for a long time, we recommend using Canon AA-size NiMH Battery Kit (a four piece set).
  • While it is possible to use AA-size nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries, performance is unreliable and their use is not recommended.
  • Never mix unused and partially used batteries. Always load two or four (depending on camera model) fresh (or fully recharged) batteries at the same time.
  • Be careful to load the batteries with their positive (+) and negative (-) ends in the right direction.
  • Never mix batteries of different types or from different manufacturers. All batteries should be identical.
  • Before inserting the batteries, wipe the battery terminals well with a dry cloth. Oil from ones skin or other dirt may cause a considerable reduction in the number of recordable images or reduced usage time.
  • Battery performance deteriorates at low temperatures (especially with alkaline batteries). If you are using the camera in cold areas and batteries are running down faster than they should, you may be able to restore performance by placing batteries in an inner pocket to warm them up prior to use. But be careful that you don't put the batteries into a pocket together with a metal key chain or other metallic objects, as these objects may cause batteries to short-circuit.
  • If you do not plan to use the camera for a long time, remove the batteries from the camera and store them in a safe place. Batteries may leak and damage the camera if left installed during prolonged periods of non-use.
WARNING
Never use damaged batteries or batteries whose outer seal is completely or partially missing or peeled off, as there is risk that such batteries may leak, overheat, or burst. Always check the seals on store-bought batteries before loading them, as some batteries may come with defective seals. Do not use batteries with defective seals.

SD card rejection


I have seen SD cards go defective. Also, enquire to the manufacture of the camera or at least the dealer to make sure that the model of SD card that you have is compatible. I have seen compatiblity issues with particular SD card types on specific models.
