    I recharged the Sony batteries. It didn't work. I tried fresh batteries, still nothing. I press the power button and the power light and orange flash indicator light flicker, but nothing happens.

Does this happen when you use the power adapter? Try using the power adapter one time to fire the camera up, then switch to battery power and see if that works.

Took battery out of working camera 4 months ago. Put charged battery in recently,but camera would not turn on. Reset with button but no change.

Do you mean your Nikon D80 battery haven't bean used for 4 months and you store it with no power? If so you battery maybe has been't damaged. Over discharge is heavy damage for Li-ion batteries. And when you store it with no power and for a so long time... You need to store it at 40% charger and at a cool but no cold place. Cold and hot are the killers of Li-ion batteries

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, place them back in the camera and give them a good charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

New batteries in, turn on and Polaroid comes on and then goes to black screen and off.

Not all batteries are created equal, especially in digital cameras. Try lithium ion batteries (Energizer Advanced or Duracell PowerPix) or quality NiMH rechargable batteries. Regular alkalines, especially some of the cheaper ones, are not recommended regardless of what the manual says.

Hi scraftcrazy,

Since you didn't use it for a long time, you are sure you didn't leave any batteries inside the camera for that long. If you did the batteries will most likely have leaked out inside the camera, and caused internal damage. One tell tale sign is that when you took out the old batteries it would be oily or the battery is bloateds. In light of this, I suggest that you clean the battery compartment out, most especially the metal connectors, since that can also be cause of not getting a power and the camera not working at all.

Did you also use HIGH CAPACITY ALKALINE BATTERIES (Energizer e2 or something similar to that) right? Try a different batteries. Since digital camera's require these types of batteries to even run. If you put regular batteries in there, it won't turn on the camera at all even if the batteries are new. If the camera also has a reset switch/button you can also try to do that. Most camera's have this kind of switch. So you may have to check the manual of your camera on this one. If you don't have one you can download it here:

The only other thing I can think off is did the camera came with an AC adapter? If it does, try using that instead and see of the camera can turn on using it's AC adapter. If it does, it's possible there is damage in the battery compartment connectors.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

Camera power problems?

It's not the battery. It turned out to be a memory card problem.

I took out my old memory card and put in a new one. It started working properly after that.

Camera won't turn on with new batteries or power cord

I heard from another posting on here and the answer, that someone took fine sandpaper and cleaned off the terminal ends of both battery and camera and blew out the dust particles from that before replacing the battery, then then camera worked. I have yet to try it with my Kodak camera that is 2 years old and suddenly died too! The batteries are fine and work in other cameras.
