My camera won't turn on!

For the past couple of months, my camera has not been turning on. I've tried numerous pairs of new batteries, but they aren't doing anything! I have no idea what could be wrong, and I have taken no steps in trying to solve this problem myself. Samsung L600, very little use, not used for 3 weeks and now won't start up, i checked battery and it's fully charged, seems to me it's a common problem, annoying thing is i bet it's an easy fix if you know how !

My samsung L600 camera was not used for almost 12 months, and would not switch on ,even with fully charged batteries .After reading the section about switches on this site, I could not find one on my camera.so I tried pushing the battery down with my finger with the cover open and turning on at the same time,WOW!!, it worked. It,s worth a try,GOOD LUCK. KEZ

I haven't turned the camera on for a couple of years. I've tried charging the battery, but I can't get it to power up. Do I need to replace battery or is it something else?


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Sony Cyber Shot, camera wont turn on


Try cleaning the connectors inside the battery compartment, top and bottom and then replace the rechargable batteries with disposable alkaline batteries and try again. If this works then the problem may be the rechargable battery pack.

Camera won't turn on.


Mine had the same problem.  I consulted http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/ and it said to use rechargeable batteries only.  The entry claimed that alkaline batteries, even if they're brand new, don't have sufficient power for more than a few pictures and may not even be powerful enough to turn the camera on.  I was dubious, but I tried putting in a pair of fully charged rechargeables and, by Gum, the camera was suddenly working again.  So before junking the camera, try investing 20 bucks in a battery charger and a pair of AA rechargeables and see if that fixes it.

Whats wrong


What kind of batteries are you using? I had this problem with a Samsung camera when using alkalines. It behaved much better with rechargeables or oxyride batteries.

Here in my side...

I do suggest that you have to set the correct battery settings in the camera...

Advised to set the correct battery type.
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see BATTERY TYPE
- Select ALKALINE if you're using NON-RECHARGEABLE
- Select Ni-MH if you're using RECHARGEABLE
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved

For other camera you just have to go to setup... and look for battery type...
