Camera turns on and says please turn camera off then on again, this is a never ending cycle have tried new battery etc etc, nothing works, also tried the tapping on carpet/table does nothing. please help...

The camera only says please turn off and then turn on again, when something serious is wrong. Could be a mechanical problem. like a lens that got stuck, but also when the camera can't access the memory. Please don't hurt your camera. Only when you know why and how to tap, it could help. But just tapping won't solve anything.
If the lens is really stuck, and you don't know what caused this, probably you can't solve this. When inside something broke, you can't solve this. Did you try to remove the battery for a little while and replacing it. Sometimes it can reset and forget a sensor is telling something is wrong. But really, if nothing helps, you only can get advice in a repair shop or with Panasonic.

My Canon SX120 IS digital camera won't turn on. I used it in the morning, set it down on a table, cam back and it wouldn't work. There is no damage. When I press the power button it does NOTHING. Is there...

If you're after a reset button there might be a little hole you can insert a pin into to reset it, look around the camera.

You should also try holding down the power button for a few seconds, it might have a function where doing that does a restart or something similar. Taking the memory card out and turning it on without it is also worth trying.

I have changed the batteries and pressed the reset button nut nothing please help

Make sure the batteries are good and having the Ah required. Now if there is no response from a reset it is for sure that the camera processor is not responding to any command and is possibily dead.
You will have to remove- the tough job- to get access and see if there are smaller issues like a line break... attempt only with proper tools.

I have had my camera for over a year now without a problem. It is a Sony Cybershot 7.2 Megapixels. Everytime I turn it on a black screen and the message - "For Use with Compatible Battery Only"...

There is a sentence which i cannot figure out the your wrote in your initial description of your poblem. I think it is meant to be the error message you are getting here is what i read as part of
""For Use with Compatible Battery Only&quot"

Can you try and post it again. From your response i still have te suspicion it could be the batteries, but your error message will help.

There is no response from the camera while pressing any buttons.
The LCD screen is frozen or the camera is hanged.
Remove and re-install the battery or batteries to reset the camera. Your valuable data stored in the camera will not be lost.

I hope some of this helps, if not above is the contact number for Polaroid tech support. You camera seems to be still covered under warranty.
Good Luck

Nothing works

Remove batteries and clean contacts both inside the battery chamber and on the chamber lid/cover.( use something slightly abrasive ). If this doesnt help replace fire fuse situated on the main pc board ( underneeth rear cover ).
