Re-attach the power source flashing

My camera wants me to re-attach the power source.  It doesn't matter if I'm using the battery or AC adaptor.  The DV tape holder in the camera will not pop out automatically.  When I do get it to open the camera displays the eject tape symbol.

    I had exactly the same problem. I disconnected the battery and then reinstalled it and the problem was fixed.
    First time I tried this, it didn't work as I had the DC cable attached. It seems that you need to disconnect all power sources for the device to reset itself.

I had the same problem. I took off the battery pack and wiped the it down with a kleenex as well as the socket in the camera where the battery pack connects to. This fixed the problem.

My sony handycam DCR-TRV340E is not charging at all, dont know if its to do with the battery or the AC power adaptor


First, check that the camera switch is in the off (charging) position.
If this is OK, Check the battery output connections for voltage: use a multimeter.
To check the charger, put a load resistor across the output terminals (about 1000 ti 2000 ohms) and again, using a multimeter, check there is a charging voltage. Alternatively, if the camera operates OK with the charger attached and switched on the charger is OK, AND, the problem is then in the charging circuit from camera to battery. If the battery checks OK as in the beginning, then you will need a Sony repair man who needs to know all the results from your testing above.

My fuji finepix s5000 has lost power


see this causes and proceed . God bless you
If the camera won't turn on, check the batteries, or connect the camera to an AC adapter. If that doesn't work, remove all batteries, disconnect the AC adapter, wait a minute, reinsert batteries and reconnect the adapter.
If the flash doesn't work, the camera won't take pictures, or the screen keeps turning off, check that the batteries are strong.

I have a sony cibershot camera for over a year now, it has always worked nicely, up until a month ago, it suddenly wont turn on anymore. I,ve already charged and re-charged the battery but nothing...


make sure the batt is charging and working fine.check also the batt contacts.make sure its clean.insert batt to your camera.instead of pressing the power button, press the play button instead to power camera on. if unit turns on,might actually be an issue w/the camera unable to power on in camera mode.if it turns on initialize cam (p.75 of the manual).see if it works.if still wont turn on try using a diff batt (or if you have an optional ac adapter model#acls5k use it, attempt to power on cam to isolate issue w/power source).if batt or ac adaptor not available try to check batt with another cam if possible to test batt. if still unit doesnt turn on using a fully charged, diff batt, or using an ac adaptor,unit would reuire service. hope this info helps.thanks:)

When i go to charge my kodak M863 camera (in the wall or by USB) the green light flashes and then the red light blinks 3 times. please help this is the first time charging my camera.


You can used the USB cable to charged the camera, But some of the M863 camera will not take charged usign the USB cable., I strongy suggest used the AC adaptor just make sure the AC adaptor is 5V ac adaptor it will only charged using the 5V adaptor., About the flashing green it indicates camera is charging just wait for the solid green light it means it fully charged

You may purchased also a special charger for your battery(KLIC-7001)- cahrer model is K8600-C. i think the price of this charger is around $29.00

My Kodak m1033 will not stay on. Once I press the power, the screen is blurry and then it shuts off.


If your using the battery which is included on the box the KLIC-7004 try to clean the 3 metal contacts of your battery using a clean dry cloth. hen charged the battery using AC adaptor or USB cable., Now if this not work, Try to turn On the camera using the AC adaptor if you experienced same problem it means the your camera is defective, But if you can turn On the camera using AC adaptor It means the battery is the cause of the problem

My sanyo vpc-hd700 will not turn on because the red light will flash but the camera won't turn on.


Your AC adaptor has very likely failed.
Check the AC adaptor on your camera.  Mine failed this morning after only 2 days of ownership. (I just purchased an Xacti HD2000 camera 02/05/09)
The Bad P/N I had was a Sanyo VAR-G9.  Based on my very light use after two days, I expect these are totally trashy power adaptors and there are likely several hundred bad ones like it in the field  Thats just a wild guess on my part, but after only two days, a unit like this should not fail at all.
The camera said "Low Battery", then could not be charged, then only the red light would flash.
I confirmed with a Digital Volt Meter that there was no 5.0V coming out of the AC/DC converter.
Radio Shack sells (and I bought) a replacement 5.0V 2.0A capable power adaptor.   Take your unit in and they can help you.  Make sure that you don't have any little children that may play with the voltage switch on the replacement, as any voltage over 5.0V can damage your camera.
With the replacement unit, my camera charges fine.

Lap top problem


Hi

If the AC power light is blinking, try the following steps:

1 Cut off power to the computer by disconnecting the AC adaptor and removing the battery. The error condition will be interrupted, and the AC power light will stop flashing.

2 Put the battery back into the computer. Do not connect the AC adaptor. Try turning the computer on again. If the computer starts normally, the AC adaptor may be
defective and will need to be replaced. If the AC power light starts flashing, remove the battery, and continue with the steps below.

3 Connect the AC adaptor to the computer. Leave the battery out of the computer. Try turning the computer on again. If the computer starts normally, the battery may need charging, may be depleted, or may be defective. Turn the computer on, insert the battery, and then leave the computer running for several hours, which will deliver a slow, steady “trickle-charge” to the battery. Once the battery has been trickle-charged, it may begin working correctly again. If the trickle-charging does not prove effective, consider replacing the battery with a new one.

4 Connect the AC adaptor to a different power outlet, preferably in a different room. If the computer starts normally, there may be a problem with the AC outlet itself, or the voltage level available from it.

5 Verify that the AC adaptor is the correct unit for your computer model. The computer may not be able to start from an AC adaptor that is rated for less current (amperage) than the computer requires, even if the rated voltage is correct, and the plug fits correctly in the DC-IN socket. The labels on the bottom of the computer and the AC adaptor show the specifications for voltage ("V") and current ("A") for each device. The voltage level must match exactly. The amperage rating of the AC adaptor must be equal to or greater than that required by the computer
