Sounds like the switch has gone bad, this is not a user fix and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: wont turn on

I had the exact same problem. The battery contacts are mildly oxidized. The problem is made worse beacause the outer contact does not put much pressure on the side (+) furthest from the hinge.
SOLUTION: Go to Radio Shack and buy a Deoxit Power Booster Pen. Wipe some on the battery ends that touch the inner contacts and insert while still wet. Rotate the batteries slighly to help coat the contacts. Wipe some deoxit on the outer contacts and close the door while pulling gently away from the hinge so you will get a good "wipe" when you slide the door latched.

I hope this works as well for you as it did for me. Scott L.

It's because the batteries aren't strong enough. You are probably using alkaline batteries, which are not recommended for digital cameras because they drain easily and quickly. Use nimH batteries.

Hello

Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem


Your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.


Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

MSDC stands for mass storage device. Is it possible that there is no memory card inserted? Or maybe the internal memory is full? Try connecting it to your computer via USB and see what it does... Good luck!

I have the Vivitar ViviCam T324N does it get charged by being hoooked up to computer or is it only powered by batteries?


The T324N is powered only by batteries. Hooking it up to a computer simply drains the batteries faster since the camera has to expend juice communicating with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

When I hit the power on button on my compaq nc6220 the yellow battery light flashes and nothing happens


Please try removing the battery, and then connect the power adaptor and try switching the laptop on see it if works if it works then the battery needs to be replaced. I would also recommend if you can check your power adaptor / swap your power adaptor with a know good adaptor (if you have one). The remaining steps will depend on the outcome of the steps above.

I pluged in the power supply and nothing is happening. The small yellow batery icon came on near the screen and nothing else is happening


Hi,

Remove the mains power lead and then take out the battery. Hold down the on/off button for 30 seconds to dispel any residual power.

Plug in just the mains lead (AC adapter) and see if the machine will boot on mains power only. If it does let it boot up and then shut it down again. Remove AC and reinsert the battery, plug in AC power again and see if it will boot with the battery in.

If it boots up the problem is sorted, if not then there is a problem with battery so you would have to use it on AC only until you find a replacement battery.

Please post back if need anymore help.


Good luck and regards.

It sint the power jack, but rather the Power control circuit. This circuit isnt repaired but replaced. I recommend taking this to an authorised service center or a certified technician of the latter is not easily avilable. If you choose to repair this at your own risk please remember doing so without the necessary knowledge will result in major damages.
