My hbc161e wont power up when the battery cover is fully closed

Connected to the battery cover is a switch, stopping all activity, and switching off the camera, when the door is opened. At least that is how it should function.

This is to avoid the camera accessing the memory, while the battery is pulled out. This could damage all pictures already on the memory card.

So when the door is closed and the camera is not starting, it could imply something is pressing to hard on the "safety" switch.

Try to find out what changed in or around the battery door. Try to find out where the switch is and why it is acting strange.

Like some debris where it should not be at something came lose.

If nothing is wrong with the camera, the battery is placed correctly, the battery cover is closed correctly then only one thing can be wrong. Even when you don't believe it is possible, the battery can be flat again.
So to make sure everything is as you think. Charge the battery again, and look if the charger acts as usually. The charging lamp turns orange and charging begins. When the charging is finished, the lamp turns green. Last time you charged, it could have taken 4 hours, before the lamp went green. If the battery is recently charged, it only will take a fraction of that time. If it still takes a long time, your battery was empty. It is recommended, to charge not longer than for 24 hours. After charging, please wait till the battery is cooled down. Then insert it again and close the battery cover. Check the cover closes correctly. And now switch on again.
If you charged with an USB cambs connected to the camera. Don't forget to remove the cable, because the camera won't start as long as an USB cable is connected.

My nikon coolpix s9100 seems to be blocked. the play/preview button will work to turn on the camera but not to actual preview anything. the buttons are working crazy

When your camera acts crazy, remove the battery , and after a few moments reinsert it. If the problem returns, there could be a more serious problem, that I can't solve, unless you have more information, about whet the camera does. Like giving a message on the screen, or some beeps, anything.

My Photosmart R727 Will Dont Turn on. i had t at a party and it was working fine then half way throo the night it went off while i was taking a photo and it will not turn back on anyone no what could be...

With the battery in, use a small paperclip and stick it in the hole next to the battery compartment. This is a reset button. If that does not work, close the battery cover and give a good medium smack against your leg. I know that sounds crazy but it works about 9 times out of ten with the HP cameras.

If you have a warranty that covers dropping, send it in. If not try contacting Canon, go to this link and plug in your information.

I slipped near the waters edge and the camera hit the water and partially submerged. Hasn't worke since. Camera turns on but thats about it. No zoom, no preview photos, no taking pictures, no picture on...

try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.

This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Canon Powershot SD750... battery or camera problem??

Try to clean the battery terminal inside the battery compartment, use barbecue stick with cotton buds with little drops of alcohol and rub the terminals. Also check the terminal spring, maybe it is loose or not pressing the battery enough.
