    I have a similar problem, I've tried new batteries mine either will turn on and say batteries depleted or shut off after the green light blinks twice or three times.

My camera hp photosmart e217 turns on with well charged batteries


Just wondering, but are the batteries that you are using new? Because, if they are not or they are rechargeable batteries they dont long for very long AT ALL on this paticular camera, ( personal experience with this camera)

Nikon Coolpix L4 Lens error


This has to be THE most common failure mode for a digital camera. Some common error messages that might show up on the LCD's of cameras with this problem include “E18 lens error”, or “lens error, restart camera”. Some cameras might show nothing at all, but merely make a beeping noise as the lens goes out, then in, then the camera shuts off. Sometimes the lens won't even move.

The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended. Believe it or not, one BIG contributor to lens errors is using a camera case. Sand, gunk, case fibers, etc... accumulate at the bottom of the case. These materials love to cling to the camera by electrostatic build-up from the camera rubbing against the side of the case (especially those cases with soft fibrous intreriors). Once these materials work their way into the lens mechanism, that's all she wrote. I have many Canon's, and NEVER use a case for this very reason.


Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on.

Fix #2: Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. Error E30 means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.

Fix #3: Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying fixes 4, 5, and 7 as a means to provide extra help to these fixes. But note that I DON'T recommend keeping the cable installed during Fix 6 as you may damage the AV port while tapping the camera. Reinsert the cable only AFTER tapping the camera.

Nikon coolpix 2100 camera won't stay on


I've been having problems with the batteries and the camera refusing to start even with fresh batteries. I bought loads of new rechargable batteries and have finally found some that work. Duracell rechargables. Theyr'e brilliant and keep their charge for ages despite continuous use of the camera! Last summer I managed to take 975 photos before the batteries finally decided to give up!

Fuji S7000 Time-out issue


I think I Had that problem too. mine also quite suddenly started showing low battery even on new ones... it seemed better with non-rechargeable types. Now the reason I'm on this site is as the lens doesn't open.

The camera shuts down without giving any warning. Is the camera defective?


Such a symptom may occur because alkaline batteries have a characteristic that reduces the capacity sharply during use. The DiMAGE 7 is designed to have a margin before it shuts itself down even if the battery is exhausted while saving the capture image data to a Compact Flash. The data will not be lost. Because it consumes more power than other Compact Flash cards for operation and data storage, users of IBM Microdrive must use Nickel Metal Hydride cells.
