Could be a loose circuit board connection, could be bad contacts in the battery compartment. Your only hope is to try to clean the battery contacts with alcohol and a q-tip. Sometimes a baking soda solution works better for cleaning, but does not dry like alcohol. Try not to get liquids in the camera.

Dvd won't eject

Someone is going to have to open the unit to see if something is jammed in the mechanism---a disc or something out of position.

Sometimes a gentle nudge will restore operation.

7340 won't turn on green light comes on for a couple clicks and turn red , it used to turn on but you had to start it several times?

Please check whether the battery is fully charged. Try power resetting the Camera.
Remove the battery from the Camera. Press and hold the Power button for 30 seconds. Then, reinsert the battery after 1 minute and check the operation.
If the issue still persists, service might be required.

FinePix S9600 will not fire-up even though it has a new set of batteries

If the batteries are good, try using a very fine and small piece of glasspaper and very carefully rub the contacts in the battery compartment. Do it gently, but make sure the contacts are clean AND make sure you do the gentle rub on all contacts [i.e., on all the metal parts inside the compartment that will touch the +ve or -ve terminals of your batteries]. This can revive a camera. Sometimes, older batteries leak fluid that is hardly visible, BUT if that fluid gets on the contacts it can form a totally non-conductive surface and, unless that's removed, the camera might not boot/work at all. If u use the glasspaper, it can remove the film and the camera will work. I've done this many times, with success, on friends' cameras.
Good luck!

You've either got a bad motherboard or a bad processor (I'd lean to the motherboard being bad). I would honestly take this into a computer repair shop and have them check both.
