Camera starts, then immediately shuts off

Not a battery problem, checked that. It has been doing this since someone loaded the card onto a computer to get pics.

    Same thing. Comes on for about a second, then shuts off. It's not the battery because I used an external DC source to be sure.

    wow. we just started having the same problem this week, too. Called tech support, got the new (expensive) battery suggestion. Purchased the new batteries, still nothing... hope someone can help!

    Hi, yes i have the same problem. Rechargable batteries used to be ok but now only take about 2 pics. normal batteries do last a little longer.

    Thank you for posting, Canoesailor.
    Here's my question: How do you erase the photos on the built-in memory? My camera is only on for one second. Can you take the card out and erase it somehow? I'm hoping that I can bringi it to a place like Walgreen's and erase it there.

    Thanks,

I took out the card.
Erased the photos on the built-in memory (after making sure they were copied to my computer.)
Replaced the card.
Voila!
Took some photos and it turned off when I wanted.
I wonder if it will last, or if it is a fluke.
Try it.

    Canoesailor again, troops.
    The problem came back, but not as bad.
    So I bought Lithium batteries, took a bunch of photos, and everything worked well. On the advice of the camera pro, I removed the batteries until today. The camera will **** the life out of the batteries even when it is "off".
    Replaced the same batteries, and did plenty photos.
    For my Z740, I think the biggest factor is keeping very fresh Lithium batteries on hand. With them, it all works. Without? --- Sorry kids.

Try not connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa:

If I understand correctly, it sounds like you loaded something (probably images) onto the card on your computer, then you placed it in your camera.
The problem may be resolved by observing the following:
1. Use your camera to format the card (be aware that this will erase all data on the card.)
2. When loading data onto the card from a computer, observe and do not alter the folder configuration created by your camera.

How do I download pictures onto my computer


To load your digital pictures onto your computer, you will need a card reader (hooked up to your computer via a USB) and your memory card. Some cameras allow you to hook a USB right into your camera without removing the memory card.
If required, you will load your memory card into the card reader. Your digital media will appear as another drive on your computer. Click the drive and your photos will appear in a folder on the drive. You can view your pictures immediately by double-clicking the file. From here, you can save your pictures directly to any folder on your computer.
Additional notes:
  • Consider purchasing photo manipulation software like PhotoShop or Fireworks. Use this software to fix common photo problems (poor light, etc) or add effects like text and color.
  • Print your photos on photo paper.

Nothing on screen


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. it is complex you need to send it to the service center.
