    Thanks, Fowler, for your response -- it didn't work, though.  ~ cb

    Regarding my Lumix FZ28 that wouldn't turn on:  the problem was that I thought a green light on the charger meant that the charging was completed.  Reading the manual, a green light means that the camera is being charged.  So I wasn't charging the battery adequately.  Live & Learn!

My Nikon D3100 will not turn on. Is there something wrong with the batteries/memory card? Or rather the camera body itself?


It could be either the battery or the camera.

If you have a second battery, try it. If it works with the second battery then the first battery is bad.

If you don't have a second battery, take your camera and battery to a good photo store. They should have a second battery to try. You might be able to test your battery with one of theirs. This will tell you whether the battery or the camera is bad.

Samsung le19a656a has sound but no picture ? has picture sometimes for a minute or so when turned on and off


Just switching off and on is not enough. You could try one step further. After switching off, remove the battery and memory card for a little while just a few seconds should be enough.
To make sure the memory card is still working, put it in an external memory card reader and look on the computer you still have pictures on it. If the card gives an error in the computer, try recover software, to retrieve your pictures. If the card looks ok, replace the memory card and the battery and switch on again.
But also make sure the battery is charged.
If after this still the same error occurs you should visit a repair centre, or start saving for a new camera.

Remove the battery and memory card, switch the power switch on for a few seconds and then switch it off. Make sure the battery is fully charged, re-insert the battery and try to switch on again without the memory card in.

My Kodak Z650 camera just won't switch ON. I used the camera a few weeks ago and it was working fine and after using it, I removed the battery and packed it away for next use. The next time i tried using...


Hi there Make sure the new batteries are fully charged before used. After that remove the memory card & try to power on. If its not ON then i suggest you remove the battery & check the that place for any sulfur layer( green colored ) are there or not. Just clean that place & put the camera in sun light for 10 minutes. Because some time moisture make short the circuit board & that's why camera would not turn on. If its a moisture problem then after those operation it will start working. But if your camera power supply converter are damaged then its not possible to repair at home. So go for all these basic treatment & after that if you not success then i suggest you please visit Kodak service center for replacement or repair. Thanks.

My m863 kodak camera charging light won't turn on.


Is the camera charging? Remember when charging thought the computer NOT to switch the camera on since this will deactivate the model to charge. Try the following: 1. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Turn the camera on. 2. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a no power repair with KODAK or a new cable.

Pls. use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher).
Here are the steps:
