This is a problem on dc 230s. Were the battery connects to the camera look at the terminals. They should stick out but yours might be pushed in, causing the problem you are describing. The way to fix it is by removing the cover and pushing the terminals back out. It is a easy fix, if you want to fix it yourself let me know and I will tell you how to do it. I work at one of canons return centers and have fixed many of these.

Camera wont turn on


Very odd that both cameras would stop working at the same time, has someone else abused them?

Removeing the batterys for a while is a good enought reset, check the battery connectors and contact your dealer if they both have warranty you will get them repaired or replaced for free. other than that I can recommend you a repair man if you provide me the city you live in.

Nikon S3000 dosent turn on


Have you updated the firmware? According to Nikon, when the Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL10 is inserted in the camera and charged, charging sometimes did not stop after the designated amount of time had passed. Usually, you'll receive the message "Battery Exhausted" if this is the problem... but you could also have a completely dead camera as well.

See Nikon's website, download updated firmware to your camera and install a NEW battery. http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16873

Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on, or works intermittently are the battery contact points, ensuring that they're clean, and making good contact with the battery. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

It is probably not worth fixing. You can likely get a new camera for less than your repair cost. If you want to watch your old tapes there are many places that will convert them to DVD.

Flip Mino HD red light won't turn off after charging. Camera won't do anything at all. What do I do?


return it for a refund! i bought one, it did the same as yours. i returned it and bought the 2nd one. It did the same as the first one (and the same as yours.)

It is a piece of junk. Supposedly the previous Flips were good, unfortunately, I didn't have the previous models so my experiences only are bad.

Photosmart R727 charging blinks never stop, camera never responds


Remove the battery, connect the camera to the charger and try the camera. If it works, it means you need a new battery.
