Question about Sanyo Xacti DSC-J1 / VPC-J1 Digital Camera
Hi and Thanks!
My xacti j1 doesn't take photos when I press the button. The battery is fully charged but it shows red in the little spot next to the viewfinder.
I can still view photos on my sd card. It still speaks when I turn it on, so i don't think it's the battery even though it shows red.
The button does move down a little so i don't think it's broken inside.
Thanks you for any suggestions!

This sounds like the same problem my daughter has with her camera (same model). Have sent it away to be repaired and have been told it needs a new MAIN PCB. The total cost is £232.65 !!! We are still looking around to see if we can get it done cheeper !

On the card there should be a tiny sliding switch which may be set to the "lock" position. Slide away from the lock and it should be OK.

Very likely your AC adaptor is broken and not providing power to the device.
I have a Sanyo VAR-G9 that failed.
Take your AC adaptor to Radio Shack, and they may be able to give you a "universal" replacement.
I am using a Radio Shack P/N 273-1696 adaptor and my Xacti HD2000 is now working again.

Try taking out your batteries and then taking out your memory card. Put back in batteries. Turn on camera.
If this works, just put back in your memory card and try again. Sometimes the memory card hangs and you need to pop it in and out.
