It is very possible that since you stored it for along time, the old batteries leaked and the contacts are now corroded. Use a Q-tip or a pencil eraser to clean the contacts. If the corrosion was there for a while, cleaning may not help and the contacts will need to be replaced.

I haven't turned the camera on for a couple of years. I've tried charging the battery, but I can't get it to power up. Do I need to replace battery or is it something else?


If the rechargeable 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. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

I have a Samsung TL100 camera and it will not take a charge


If you haven't used it for the last 8 months and before it was all fine then the most common reason would be the battery. Your battery is absolutely dead but then again if you plug it to AC then it must show some sign of life. But give it a go by replacing new battery. To check get it from a friend and then test the camera on it.


If the battery replacement doesn't work then take it to an authorized dealer for inspection.

I haven't used this camcorder in a couple of months (bought new in January). When I went to charge it last night, neither the mains charger or USB lead will charge it. Does it just need a new...


The battery should be good if it was bought in January, with that said nothing is nperfect or lasts forever, there are always issues with some things. If all your connections from the charger or USB are good and tight and the cables are good, the either the battery is bad or the plug in on the camera is bad, or the battery nmay be installed incorrectly. That is about all there can be .

Hi! I have a Nikon Coolpix. I haven't used it in a while. I charged it over night but it won't turn on.


Your batery is dead they don't like long period of staying discharging (If you 100% shure that your Nikon is working) The time of charge dosen't matter.

Everything seems to function well, actually, I've never used this camera. Got if off of ebay, so maybe I was gypped. Anyways, the film advance lever seems to be stuck. It only goes half way. I can put...


If the lever won't advance even when there is no film in the camera, then I would say there is a problem. (p.s. You haven't told us the make and model)

My camera won't turn on...it is brand new


Brand new as in you just opened it out of the box? If thats the case you have to charge the re-chargeable battery first, then put it in the camera and it should work fine. Try giving the battery a charge first if you haven't already.

My nikon coolpix camera battery dided and now when i plug it in to the charger it wont charge. is there some sort of reset i can do?


If you haven't use your Nikon Coolpix camera battery for a long time and now there is no power, when you first plug it to charger it maybe show none action. And charger longer it will be well. But if your battery Nikon camera battery are used well these days, and it won't be charge. It means you need a new Nikon battery charger
