My digital camera is Samsung Galaxy, Model no is EK-GC100 and it won't turn on.

When the camera is becoming warm while charging the battery, the battery must be charged. So no need to check for dirty contacts. If you have a multimeter perhaps you can measure the voltage on the battery. While just measuring the voltage, the battery must give a little more then printed on the battery. So when on the battery is printed 3,7 V toy should measure 3.8 or 3.9.
Anything less means the battery is not good.

Now the causes of not switching on. Sometimes the on / off switch is defect. Sometimes the (mini) USB connector is defect and telling the camera, there is still a plug in the camera. It won't switch on. Sometimes the display button must be pushed several times, so the display shows something. And sometimes, the camera is defect.
Carefull investigate the connector and on / off switch, but be aware cameras sometimes become defect, without telling you what is wrong.
I wish you luck.

Lg g500 battery

This could be one of 4 problems, all of which are relatively common
1. Your laptop's battery is broken or defective
2. Your battery charging cable is broken or defective
3. Your laptop's AC port is broken or defective
4. Your battery charging cable is unplugged

I'm not joking on the 4th one by the way, it's more common than you'd think. In any case, the best way to ascertain the problem is to check each of the components individually. First, make sure the computer is off. Plug the charger into the computer. If the charging cable has a charging light, is it on? Make note of this. Unplug the charger, unplug the battery, then plug the charger back in. Try to turn the laptop on. Does it turn on? Make note of the result. If nothing happens during any of these tests, the AC port is faulty.

If the charging cable has a light and it's on, the charging cable is most likely not faulty. If the computer turns on when the battery is not plugged in, then the cable is definitely not faulty. Generally, this means you should replace the battery. Depending on the battery design, fixing it yourself is sometimes possible, but it's nonetheless never recommended. I'm going to suggest that you either buy or obtain a new battery through the warranty if you have one.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. ;-)

Battery is fully charged on my 205 and yet it turns itself off

Can it be turn on when the device is attached to the cradle with electric supply?
If so, I think the battey is aged and it cannot be charged to the operating voltage to turn the device on.
A change of battery is required.
I had such a case recently.

My garmin nuvi 750 won't turn on when it is unplugged.. It is charged. It will turn on if I have it connected in the car.

Most likely a defective battery. How do you know it is charged? If the battery is bad, you can have it on the charger for 5 years and it won't charge a dead battery.

How to turn on xl and off

Somewhere on the top of the unit there is a power button. Press it for a few seconds to turn the machine ON. You use the same button to turn machine OFF.

You may try to recharge it first (car adapter or USB port of a computer). If you do not and battery is holding no charge you may think the unit defective.

Forerunner 305 keeps beeping, turning on and off every 5 seconds

I think I had the same problem. You do not write if your device were connected to the PC. My device was, and I finally got the suspicision, that it died because the battery was so low, that it crashed when the PC polled it as an usb unit.
So, I connected the unit directly to the charger unit that came with the unit, and now it works. So, try to connect directly to your charger, when your battery is totally drained.

Sounds like you may have a defective battery. I think that particular device will need to be returned to the manufacturer to have the battery replace.

How Long to Charge??

sandisk recommends 3+ hours for the initial charge and then about 1.5 - 2 hours for after the battery is drained. More information is needed to diagnose this problem. but here is some info. After 45 minutes on the phone with sandisk to get them to send a new battery, they ran me through these troubleshooting steps, hope they help. do one at a time and see if you get a result -Reset device take out battery hold power button for 30 count put battery back in turn device on. -Upgrade firmware Go to website, download firmware update This was the URL at the time of writing this or try Install according to instructions. let the device reboot. -Format memory. turn hold switch on, orange should be visible hold pause/play button and press power. click forward button when the screen comes up. let this run. after reboot flip the hold switch off. then they put me on hold for 10 minutes...
