Question about Mustek DV-5500 Digital Camera

Open Question

Camera stopped working after a month or two

I baught the camera and after a month or two it completely died on me. It wont turn on or do anything. To power it usually i plug it in to the usb cable and then plug the usb cable into my computer because i thought that was the correct way of powering the computere. I need help badly because the internet source i baught it from doesn't want to fix it.

SOURCE: Camera does not turn on without charger base

I took mine to Radio Shack, because of that same problem. The guy there said that the battery card was not all of the way pushed in. Also, Radio Shack had sold me a 4G memory card to go with it and he, a different guy from Radio Shack, said that that was too much. It does work with my 1G card and he said it might work with a 2G. Who knows. With the battery pushed in correctly, it might work with the 4G.
I have no book, users guide. A girl a the store accidentally cut in half when she opened the package for me. No, she did not give me a new book! Yes, I asked.

Base from the description of your problem this is a clear sign of a bad battery, that;s why the camera wont power On since the battery wont charge, so if you have a replacement battery there that should correct the problem on this camera. You can by the way get a replacement battery from any electronic store near you.

Canon 1000 d wont turn on

Did you try to recharge the battery? Check if the battery contacts are still clean and shiny? Is the lens still connected as it should be?
These things I should check as a first reaction.
Is the battery still ok, after you charged it? batteries, sometimes just stop working. There is not such thing as a lifetime for a battery that is at least xx months or years. Some batteries die within one year, some survive 10 years. When the camera does not start, place the battery on the list as number one of the suspects.

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.

Cyber-shot T2


I don't know if I can do much besides commiserate and tell you about this *completely* outlandish workaround I arrived at via trial-and-error for my DSC-T20 with a similar problem.

A little background: I've had my T-20 for about 8 months. About 4-ish months ago I started getting this 62:02 error message onscreen. Still get it all the time. And yes, I love(d) my camera, too.

The error darkens the edges of pix, disallows me from turning it off w/o popping the battery out, disallows me turning it back on (sometimes), and causes a steady degradation of focus/auto-focus over a matter of seconds.

When I could turn it on, sometimes the green pilot light would blink on, the screen would say "SONY", and then it would die before the cyber-shot logo popped up. For a time (while it worked) I found that if I kept the "take picture button" pressed down while it was booting-up, it would hiccup/blink off for a sec--then start up normally.
Of course, this workaround doesn't always work, as the camera won't even turn on at all to start it's boot. Workaround: I found that if I pressed the sliding cover quite hard (the auto-ON switch--which is how it seems yours works, too) , as I slid it down v e r y slowly (while continuing to exert pressure), the camera would turn on.

I hope that this is helpful, and if it's not, I suggest you goof around with yours to see if you can figure out some of your own ridiculous (and in a reasonable world: *totally* unnecessary) workarounds.

My camera got wet ...

Well put it away somewhere warm for another month with the battery out.

But I have a feeling that the camera has died
Nothing for you to repair in side so you wont beak anything by taking it apart for curiosity sake.

My camera won't turn on..

Canon Customer support is the place to go or the seller it is still under warranty- and if you are certain you have not inflicted damage to it- back it must go.
