Camera won't come on even with new batteries

Re: Camera won't come on even with new batteries

The DC-DC converter which distributes the internal voltages within the camera could be at fault. Check to see if any of the pins in the CF card media bay are bent over, if so, this is the cause of the power supply failure. Good Luck Joe Weibel

The new roll of film winds into the right spool upon closing back cover // brand new batteries displays 1/2 and ERR appears on led panel

Is the ERR blinking, and is there an additional blinking E on the display? If so, the film is not loaded properly.
The film is supposed to advance all the way to the take-up spool upon loading. The camera then "rewinds" one frame at a time as you take pictures. This way the camera knows exactly how many shots are left on the roll. Also, if the back is accidentally opened, the shots already taken are already in the can and won't be ruined.
If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.
Try cleaning the battery contacts and see whether the battery reads full with no film in the camera.
If problems persists, feel free to reply to this post and give any additional details.

I have a 35 mm canon ae-1 camera. I havent used it in a while and I was just trying to load some film but I cannot get the wind lever to work, and therefore also cannot use the shutter button. I am not...

Canon AE-1 will not work without a battery,so if your battery is low then most likely that is your problem.Battery compartment is located on the front of the camera.Replace the battery with a brand new one,used batteries even though they will read the right voltage(6 volts)will not have enough amperage to allow proper cycling of all moving parts.Buy a good quality battery like eveready,duracell,etc.hope this helps.

Pentax MZ-60 very ******* batteries


the camera has a short circuit. if the camera got wet or was in very high humidity the flex circuit is shorting . take or send your MZ60 to a camera repair shop for an estimate. if the camera has liquid damage they most likely will not repair it.
however if it's just a component part it's fixable.
the battery drain will worsen as the short increases.

N2000 will not Turn ON

Hi Oskarr900, The corrosion may have eaten away at small wires that are on the springs that hold the battery holder in the camera. Notice those wires go into the plastic camera body. If that has happened the camera will need to go in to Nikon. These cameras are only worth $90 or less so you may want to look into purchasing a used N2000.

LCD goes blank whether camera is on or off

Hey sirath,
I know you just got the camera serviced, but from how you describe the issue I would say there is a problem with the connection of the LCD to the camera (i.e. a loose wire). I am assuming that the camera will still take a picture, but you just can't see anything on the LCD screen. If this is the case I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician, and I would bring it back to whomever worked on the camera before because it is possible that the previous repair caused the problem and if that is the case this repair would most likely be free. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

ni-cad or ni-mh rechargeable batteries all have charging cycle life and will fall in effeciency. in saying that, batteries used for some time will be not be as powerful as the new ones, and over or under charged batteries also wouldn't give you expected power.

i guess the CR123A you replaced is a new one, so it has the desirable voltage and current.

LCD itself and the driver actually do not require a lot of power, but the camera does, which draws away from the battery.

Camera battery is dead and was just bought a week ago

If the contacts have been cleaned in the battery chamber, check the lower contact post - it's spring loaded and often gets stuck and doesn't make good contact with the battery. A little WD40 usually will free it up. Your batteries are probably still good.

If this camera is a Canon Rebel K2 the problem may be that it might need a new main drive motor. I have replaced two drive motors in the last couple of days in these cameras. When the motor starts to go bad the film transport may stop in mid cycle and the battery check indicator starts to blink. The battery draw becomes excessive and the camera shuts down. Of course, there may be other problems but this a common one. Hope this helps.

Battery ( 6 volts ) is situated in front on the left hand side. Small hinged door will pop open if you unlock at the bottom corner. Clean contacts before installing a new battery.

Rewind Problem

Wait till night. Go to a room. Draw all the curtains and switch off all lights. Now you have a dark room. Make sure you can't even see your own fingers! Pop the camera film cover. Pull out the film and rewind manually.
