Cannot conect the camra

I see even the 1.3 Mb version has a USB connection. The cable came with the camera. If you have to go out for a cable, it could be the cable (special mini connection) will be more expensive then a pen cam. Normally you need a driver for the pen cam and it was on a CD that came with the camera. If you don't know where you have the CD, try downloading a driver from AIPTEC, or another firm that does sell penn cams.
I don't have a pen cam with a separate memory card, so my guess is you done't have one. Cause if you have a memory card, you don't need a driver, just a memory card reader connected to a PC.

Battery doesn't hold charge for more than a week

All batteries will eventually fail to hold a charge. The battery chemistry and how you charge it can change how long the battery will last. The DMC-FS4 has a Lithium-ion battery so it shouldn't have as much of the memory issue of older rechargeable batteries. (This is the "you routinely recharge the battery when it's at 50% then it always stops working at 50% charge" problem.)

How old is your battery? Eventually you will need a new battery but the time to replacement will depend on the number of recharge cycles. With a Li-ion battery, I'd expect several thousand recharges before failure. Temperature and usage will effect this. The battery does lose charge even when not used.

Be careful, some versions of the firmware look for Panasonic's specific batteries or a "that match the Panasonic rigorous specs".

I've seen a few devices where the charger failed before the battery. If a new battery doesn't seem to be charging, replace the charger. I hope this helps.

My fuji finepix s5000 has lost power

see this causes and proceed . God bless you
If the camera won't turn on, check the batteries, or connect the camera to an AC adapter. If that doesn't work, remove all batteries, disconnect the AC adapter, wait a minute, reinsert batteries and reconnect the adapter.
If the flash doesn't work, the camera won't take pictures, or the screen keeps turning off, check that the batteries are strong.

The camera will not turn on even though batteries are new.

Hi Kris - If the camera worked before changing the batteries, but now it doesn't; check the batteries for proper insertion. If just one battery was installed incorrectly, the camera will not power up. Also, check the charge of the batteries. If even a single dead battery was included in the mix of new batteries, the camera will not power up either.

If all these conditions check out ok, the problem may be related to defective hardware (power switch, lens, etc.). When the camera is powered on, it goes through a quick self test. If any of these self tests fail, the camera shuts off immediately. This will often require that the camera be evaluated professionally. Hopefully, you'll find the problem is battery related.

My Samsung CX1L DSLR camera is telling me that there is no battery power (the flashing battery sign on the top display) even when I've put new batteries in. I'm guessing there's a bit of a dodgy connection...

First, try cleaning the battery contacts with an ink pen type eraser, not a pencil eraser, but one that is made to erase ink. These are a little gritty and usually white, not red rubber.
If this does not work, and you are sure they are NEW batteries, not just not used batteries, try to reset the camera to all original defaults.
If this fails, the camera may have a faulty internal connection, and need to be repaired or replaced.
One last thing to try, IF the camera will accept an external power supply, do you still get the no battery power?
If so, this is a sure sign it has an internal failure and needs to be serviced or replaced.

My zoom is nott coming out

Very doubtful that disconnecting it is related to the problem. Make sure batteries are perfect. If that doesn't help try the light banging tip. It is always worth trying. It is not uncommon for connections to wear, loosen or decay over time. There are many contacts and connections in a camera. Banging it from different positions against your palm may help it make connection or make a better connection and correct the "electrical connection" problem. I always try "using the hammer" before scrapping something or sending it off for repair.
