It uses selenium cell, battery is not needed. There is a small button on the right of the camera, press it down will lift up the meter cover. This1950-60s camera does not have auto-focus system.

My lumix dc20 when turned on displays this battery cannot be used. Any ideas please


1) Incorrect battery, use genuine battery. 2) My Canon 400D had a similar problem. Checks showed that I had a damaged standard 18mm to 55mm lense unit, and also gave me "change battery" error message. I had a similar problem with a 70-300m lens. The camera main lense needed repairs, the Tacumar lense was not worth repairing. Have a camera specialist check your camera and more specific the main lense unit.

Image wont come up on screen and its flashing me and saying the batery needs charging its like theres a cover over the inside of the lense. There is a red symbol with a red line through it. Is this the...


No. The power converter inside the camera is damaged some how. It says the battery needs charging because power cannot get to the main circuit - it needs to be taken apart and isolate the crack or open contacts.

Kodak Easyshare wont turn on with a full batery


Remove your battery and memory card for 15 min and put them again. (you can also try by putting new batteries. In some cases battery can be faulty.) Then restart your cam. If then also problem persist, Sorry you have to get it serviced. there is a mechanical problem.

Lensis not coming out


If you turn it on in photo review mode the lense will not open so turn it on in photo capture mode or if dirt gets caught in the lense it would jamm it shut so try to clean it, or if the lense is dented it would jamm, or if at one time the lense tried to open indide a case or in a position where the lense was blocked the motor mioght have burned out or the gear that pushes the lense out might have broken, in the case of the last three answers then a specialist might be able to fix it , or you might need a new camera, (i reccomend a fujifilm)

I own a sony cybershot dsc w35 when i switch on the screen displays "turn the power off and on again" help?


Hi. I had exactly the same problem with my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W7. The problem started after while lense was fully open, the battery became 100% empty. I did not have access to new batteries and did not have my charger with me so I put the camera on my car seat and went home. After charging the batteries, I turned the camera Off and the lense retracted 100%. Later on I tried to transfer some pictures to my PC. After connecting the camera to my PC with the dial in the P position and lense fully open I turned the dial to play in order to transfer photos. After transferring the pictures, I turned the camera off and disconnected from the computer.

I turn the camera on to take new pictures next day, The lense would go up, and and turn with lense fully open. It would never close. The screen was black with a message "Turn the camera on and off again". I tried 30 times or more and the same thing would happen again.

Here is what I did to fix my camera and it has been working normally since then.

1- I cleaned around the outside of the lense with lent free cloth

2- I used dust OFF to get raid of the remaining small dust particles from around the lense.

3- While turning the camera off, I pushed (down, up and turn) the lense in (NOT TOO Hard) by my hand. If you push the lense too hard, you may damage the mechanicall moving parts of the lense.

4- After a few tries, the lense retracted 90% +. I then pushed the lense a little harder all the way in, the way it normall retracts. The lense cover also closed 100%.

5- I turned the Camera on and off a few times. It was opening and closing exactly the way it used to. My Cybershot has been working okay since then.

I read a lot and here is what cause my lense to malfunction.

While lense was fully open and battery died, some small particles got on the lense and prevented lense from fully opening or closing.

In summery: two things could have caused your camera lense to malfunction.

1- if you had dropped your camera hard, some mechanical parts may have got damaged or dislocated. In this case you have to open the lense and replace the damaged part, clean and put it back on the camera. This is too risky for most ordinary people. You would most likely make it WORST.

2- If you did not drop it, most likly, some how some small dust particles got on the outside of the lense and they prevent the lense or the lense cover from fully opening and closing. If this is your case, please follow exactly what I did and your camera would be back to normal.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Canon EOS Digital Rebel 300D will not take pictures


Have you tried to take picture by switching off the autofocus to manual focus in a prperly lit environment?
If it takes a picture, then it has something to do with your auto focus system of your camera. In such a case: try taking out the battery, the memory card etc and switch off the camera and keep it for like that for about 5 minutes. And then insert only the fully charged battery and try again.
If it still gives you a problem and keep trying to focus You will need to take it to the nearest Canon Service centre.

Brand new batteries and its tellin me to change them!


please check if the batteries u used before have leaked any oil inside the camera. this damages the metal strip that shorts and two batteries. if there is no damage then tat portion s safe.
the small battery inside battery compartment is for camera date. dont disturb it.
after changing new batteries tha camera works for few time and then shuts down means your camera CCD s consuming lot of power. use a camera adapter to confirm that the camera works in normal power atleast.
even after this. camera shuts off itself. take it to service centre soon.
