My camera won't turn on at all

I went camping over the winter in the moutians in New Mexico. The camera was working fine until the second day I was out there, I woke up and the Camera just wouldn't turn on, I've replaced the batterys and still get no power. Is there anything I can do for it??

Besides the obvious (i.e. did you drop the camera?), I wonder if there was excessive condensation in the camera due to the extremes of temperature. Perhaps this caused some trouble.

PLEASE HELP! I bought an Olympus SP800UZ camera recently on my trip to the USA. At the end of my holiday in Mexico, i turned it on like normal and there was a problem; it constantly takes photos. It was...

I would direct you to Olympus to help you with this problem. They have repair centers in Australia and your camera should still be under warranty.

However, I would first email or call them and tell them your problem over the phone and they may be able to help you.

I also have 2 other suggestions that you could try yourself.

- Make sure the olympus software that came with your camera is installed onto your computer.
1. Install the software. 2. Plug one end of the camera cord into the computer. 3. Restart your computer. 4. Start up the software. 5. With your camera turned off, plug the other end of the cord into the camera. 6. Turn the camera ON.

- Purchase a air duster can and try gently spraying all the buttons on your camera to see if it dislodges anything. Its possible a speck of sand is causing a problem somewhere. Sand is a camera's enemy!

See if that works. I really hope you find a solution to your problem!

Good luck!

My Nikon Coolpix s550 won't turn on despite having charged the battery. I went out and bought a new battery from Best Buy today and tried to get information on what might help but, surprise, the guy...

refurbished items sure have hidden defects/problems that later contributes to malfunction. i think, one of its internal chips(techy things inside) has worn out... probably needs replacement.. i suggest look for a technician.. if you're living in the philippines,it's easy to find someone. you can save your lovely camera and lil money of course.

Camera won't turn on

First, you shouldn't take pictures in the raw mode unless you have the software on your computer that can read it and convert it. Second, the camera appears to be's new so why not take it back?

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse won't start in the winter...(15,000km)

Try using a fuel treatment. Sometimes water builds up in the lines and makes it hard for the car to start cuz you can't combust something thats frozen... I'd recommend Lucas Fuel Treatment... either that, or maybe new spark plugs, though if the dealer thought they were fine, I don't think that's the case.

New cartridge won' t print.

Was the cartridges lexmark factory replacements or was they generic replacement cartridges.

If they are generic cartridges you might want to buy lexmark cartridges because some generic cartridges will not work in some printers

Camera won't turn on

You were camping Huh! In a Tent My guess Damp Damp is the death of digital cameras. Take batteries out. Find a large poly bag- preferably with a snap lock zip type thing- Get hold of some of those little sachets of Silica Gel Or a cloth bag and fill with rice and salt. This will absortb moisture. Pull all in the poly bag somewhere gently warmf or a couple of days. Do Not turn the camera on.
