The shutter on these cameras is complete manual, so the batteries don't enter into its operation. If the shutter button isn't doing anything (be sure you operated the winding lever to cock the shutter!), then it probably means there is a mechanical problem that will require professional intervention. These cameras are very inexpensive (about $140 new, with lens), so it may cost more to fix it than to just buy another one. They have decent lenses and usually are pretty good cameras. They are made by Cosina, a Japanese company that makes cameras for a number of "name brand" companies.

Car wont start like its not gettin enough juice

1st I would start by checking the battery voltage at the connection terminal clamps of the car and not the battery this way you can see if you have a good contact then test on the actual battery terminal full battery should read 12.8 and no lower than 12.4 otherwise it should be charge so you dont weaken the battery and shorten its life. If everything checks out fine. Check your fuses under the hood and there s usually some inside the car. Look for fuel injection and it wouldnt hurt to check them all. It helps if you have a multimeter to test fuses less time and work. Will try the next steps if its isnt resolved by any of these solutions.

My trackball zoom on my camera is not working anymore?

The same problem with me, i do a hard reset and it is fixed, simple isnt it?

To do the hard reset, just remove the battery for 1-2 minutes and restart the phone. This will reset the camera firmware to its factory default.

Television displays in blue , only checked all

For your remote problem, mine has stopped working a couple of times and here is what Sharp had me do: Take the batteries out of the compartment. Next press and hold down the power button on the remote for a count of 30 seconds. Return batteries and the RC should be reset. As for the other problem, I had a similar thing happen tonight, hence I am on this site looking for help. My remote quite working, so I did the above, to no avail. I noticed the channel number box was frozen on the screen. I could not turn the TV off manually and had to unplug from AC. I plugged it back in and got sound but no picture, just that bluish dark screen. TV would not turn off. Then I got nothing, no sound, no pic. I left the TV unplugged for several minutes, 5 or so, plugged it in and it did work and is working now, RC too. You might try unplugging it for an extended time.

Can't start motorbike


Sometime things like that happens
Since it almost start but the battery dont last enough to go all the way i sugest you you connect a car battery with cables to your battery. The car battery is stronger and last longer, that will start your bike. You can do it for a couple of minist but i dont rekomend you to do it longer, Since the carbattery is stronger it can cause damages on you startengine if you have it connected to long. But when your bike starts you wont need the carbattery anymore, revome the cables immidiately.

Good luck
