My batteries went dead and camera shut off. Now I


if the camera wont turn on remove the memory card and make sure your pictures are transfered. Try using regular disposable batteries. Also when trying to turn it on try holding down the power button for 5 seconds. If it still doesnt turn on coud be a broken switch connection.

Camera will not turn on


I just had the same problem with my Kokak 712. I used the solft cloth that came with the kit and removed the batteries and cleaned the flap of the battery with a cloth several times. Replaced a new battery, even though my battery was new, and it works now.

I have a ViviCam 8400 and have the same problem UNLESS I buy Duracell Power Pix or Energizer Titanium batteries. These cost more than the regular grade AA batteries, but when I used brand new regular batteries, the camera would turn on for 2 seconds then turn right off. Titanium or Power Pix batteries make the camera work fine. And, because they are made for digital media, they do allow you to use the camera for longer periods of time.

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.
