Camera wont turn on

I dropped my camera and now it will not even turn on. It appears to be completely dead. I tried to charge the battery but that did not make a difference. None of the buttons work at all. The camera does not make noise or anything - it simply does not turn on at all. What should I do? Is it hopeless??

    Same here. I dropped my camera and it won't even turn on. When I press power it lights up but that's about all it does. Is there anybody that can help me because I really need help.

... The battery cover door (when shut) presses a tiny
button just beside the SD/MMC memory card.
Perhaps this is the culprit

If you drop it this it is one of two: 1) A hardware component in your Camera is broken and need to be replaced. 2) A small power surge caused the camera Controller not to be recognized. You should send it to maintenance as soon as possible to determine what exactly happened.

Built in battery wont hold its charge


If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Wont turn on


Well to be3 a 100% about the battery I would replace it with one that you know or is guaranteed to work. Camera batteries can look OK from outside and be completely collapsed inside.

No Charge lights can indicate NO battery and if there is one inside then it is dead and registers as a no battery ( no charge light)

The red light blinks in very low state, but totally discharged it will not blink and wont blink again until loeft on chareger for about 3-4 hrs to overcome the low state.

Battery Dont Charge


I had the same problem. I had a 1 year warranty, so I called 1800-435-7732 and they sent me a new battery within 5 days. I just received it today and it works perfectly. Hope this helps you! =]

TX IS DEAD


The T3 will appear dead until the battery has SOME charge. A totally dead battery, even though plugged into a charger, will not let the T3 turn on. You mention a previous charger problem. Could be a bad charger, or a bad battery. Check to see if the charging light is on on the T3 when you think you are charging. If it is not on, try another charger. If it is on, you may have a bad battery.
