If you are thinking of runnig it from the mains supply then you will need a 3v units - a common universal unit from will do it the camera will have a diode thats protects the polarity and a universal power supply with have reversible connectors

I just purchased a power shot (SD 1300 IS), right before Christmas 2010.. It won't turn on it says change the battery pack? Is the battery already bad? If so, why?


If this battery is a Li-ion then when it runs down it may lock itself out. Li-ion batteries start loosing their ability to hold a charge just as soon as they are manufactured. If this camera sat on the shelf for a year, then the battery is dead and perhaps you can recharge it. If these are carbon zinc, or akaline, and they sat on the shelf in the camera, then they are surly dead.

SONY CYBER SHOT MODEL DSC W-180. TURN THE POWER POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN MSG DISPLAYED AS SOON AS THE CAMERA ON IN STILL & VIDEO MODE. WANT SOLUTION


Hi,

The message appears when the Camera is having some Internal malfunction. If the message re appear after turning off and on, try power resetting the Camera.

Performing a manual power reset

· Turn off the camera.

· Remove the battery pack.

· Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

· Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

· Reinsert the battery pack.

· Turn on the camera.

To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from MENU>>SETTINGS>>INITIALIZE>>OK. Reset the camera to factory default to check if the issue can be resolved.


If the issue is still unresolved, service will be required.


Thanks,

I just got this laptop from a friend and was working fine. now i cant get it to power on after i shut it down using the normal shut down. I didnt cut off by using the button. Now i cant get it to cut back...


a 17 year old Laptop , 99.9% now in the dumpster.
are you going to spend cash on this? if yes why?
if it was a horse it be in the glue factory.
a dead laptop
step 1: is remove that old shorted huge battery now.,
step 2: then that 17 year old useless as a brick RTC coin cell.
replace it now. or BIOS will be DEAD.
strep 3 , a working power pack 19vdc,65watts up. and does the PC fan work now?, if not, it needs lots more cash !!!!
ask if you can get this far.?
above can be done for $10 (8buck pack and 2 buck coin)
leave that main battery out , until the PC runs like new.
do not buy a battery main, do not. unless cash dont matter.

if this far, and the power button fails, then we must strip the PC down, to find out who is shorting the power buses !
or fan is bad, or just packed fully in lint , as all are that old.


do the HP hard reset yet,
?
see line 6 here, to the HP page on , hard power reset.
http://pcdied.com/black-screen.html#Laptop


and then the other tests. after that.


here are the goals
1: power seems to work (the switch)
2: the fan works, and actually blow air, not packed up
3: screen shows text of any kind, like, "hit F10 to enter HP setup"
as seen for 17 years but not todaY?
4:BIOS key works. F10 key works as prompted . and BIOS screens all work.
5: more, get this far say so... lots more its not a toaster

Date & time reset when battery pack is removed


Internal battery down. Try to let with inserted main battery or DC power for 24 hours, if internal battery charges again. If not, it needs to be replaced.

How do u turn the polaroid 600 0n or off?


on all the time- battery is in the film pack, and when you press the shutter it gets all the power from the film pack battery. If the camera doesn't work, it's possible that the battery is dead, even if you have film left. You'll need to try and get the film pack replaced, if the expiration date has not passed.If it has passed your just out of luck.  Since Polaroid made their last run of film forever this last summer,  this camera is probably going to be obsolete soon, so get your film  while you can.

Camera Wont turn on


It really could be the batteries. You may want to buy a very good pair of high power Duracell or Energisers first just to make sure that the problem is not with the camera.

I bought my mother this HDC-1061E camera and it was fine for not very long until it seemed the batteries that came in the camera box ran out. A short time. And I offerred a new pair of batteries I found lying around, they were cheap batteries I would use for something not requiring much power. And they brought the camera on but it went off within a second or two each time.

Though then I recalled an 8.2 mexapixel camera I bought for myself last year made by Kodak, and I found that some cheap batteries would not even turn that camera on. And expensive duracells didn't actually last long at all.

What's the solution? Buy a couple of 4 packs of NiMh (2700, no less) batteries (UniRoss is a good buy for this, around £9.99 a 4 pack in Amazon), and a recharger separately. If you're thinking about the environment you should think about a solar recharger though that will recharge a good amount slower than recharging from the mains (there are some more expensive units, if you look around, that offer solar and mains recharging).

I suggest two 4 packs so you have the batteries you are using, another set to exchange for a long day out (maybe not so long in fact, these cameras eat batteries so quickly), a further pair of emergency batteries, and then a pair kept always at hand at home if you need to load fresh batteries at any time. Recharge as soon as used.
A cheapish mains recharger won't cost more or much more than £13 to £20 and may esaily be a few pounds less. Solar rechargers are available in this bracket too, usually a little more expensive than mains ones. If you buy the battery I have specified this should work fine.
