Amy, I'm sorry this happened to you. But Fixya is not linked to any firm that sold your Microdermabrasion System (Professional Skin Rejuvenation). Here are jus a bunch of amateurs and professionals, who like to help people with technical questions. The only thing I can tell you is this:
When you have an electric or electronic apparatus, with a (rechargeable) battery in it. It won't work if you left it unused and un charged for a few years. Only lithium batteries, are known for long life. They can be o the shelf for 10 years and still work. But all other batteries are gone when not used in just a few years.
If you can replace the battery, it is possible your Microdermabrasion System will work as you expected.
So don't expect an answer from a sales person that offers you payback or something you where thinking of. Try to find the firm that mad this equipment.

I have a Kodak DC290 which has not been used for a while. Put new AA's in it but it won't turn on. Camera belonged to my husband, who recently passed away. Also can't find the manual. Can you...

If it sat a long time with old batteries, make sure they did not leak and corrode the contacts in the camera. Look at them and clean if necessary.

My cybershott70 won't turn on

Dear Sir,

The problem could be with your camera to battery connections. The
The secret to making digital cameras work better is having good electrical contacts between the batteries and the camera.

Digital cameras require lots of power. If electrical contacts are not really good, this can cause lots of problems so battery and camera contacts must be cleaned properly. Batteries may be fully charged, but will be viewed as low if contacts are not really good. The LCD display is a low steady load, but when lens extension, optical zoom, focus, and flash charging are added in the capture mode; the load is very heavy. With bad contacts, cameras do strange things like making bad pictures or shutting off with the lens out. For cleaning procedure you may visit this link

My Canon digital Camera won't turn on

I assume you've already gone thru the obvious check and proposed fixes covered in the user manual (battery replacement, contact cleaning, etc). I did all that to no avail after dropping it about 1m onto a concrete floor last nite - after which it refused to power up.

There was no obvious mechanical damage other than a ding on the
rear corner of the battery box door. After disassembly, seeking interior damage, I found a deformed piece of plastic near the door
latch strike that was preventing the door closure switch next to the "MENU" button from fully operating. Some careful tweaking and making a note to push the latch fully closed after use fixed it.

This switch must be operated (opened) in order for the camera to
run. You can verify this on a working A570 by pulling the door latch
partway open, while keeping the door closed by hand, and trying
to power up.

Digital rebel battery drain with flash only

I would suspect the batteries

Ive got an eos Rebel think its just over 4 years old
for the last year its been used every weekend for several hours 300+ pics per weekend between 2 nights I found that recently where one battery would last a night the battery was running out midway through & also taking longer to charge afterwards

2 after market replacements cost me about £10 and things are back to normal

5 years is a pretty good lifespan for a battery so its probably just getting old

It could be the battery isn't taking a charge. Since your purchased the camera last February you could be still covered under warranty. I would check with I found this link on their website:

Camera wont turn on unless i take the batteries out

I tried alkaline batteries in this camera and it would only work for a few pictures, then it would go unstable and do unpredictable things. The lithium batterys also caused problems like the ones you described. As a last resort I found that there was a ni-mh battery for this camera. I could not find this accessory. I purchase some batteries and charger then installed them into camera. reset the camera using the reset function, then tested camera. It now works correctly and consistantly takes good pictures. If the camera does not work with the ni-mh batteries it might be damaged or bad.

Battery issue

Sorry for the late response (don't know how I missed this post?). Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your camera's battery icon is flashing. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status.

How do i turn on my protege pc link and does it require a battery

Jean, yes this does take 2 "cr2025 lithium" batteries, which are pretty easy to find anywhere that sells watch batteries. However, when I purchased mine it had a plastic tab sticking out of the back of it, from under the battery access cover, which was blocking the batteries from making contact to prevent them from draining before first use, so you might want to check if there's a piece of clear plastic sticking out of the back and if so, just pull it out. If that's not the case, then odds are the batteries did drain while sitting and you'll need to replace them. Hope this helps, Scott
