Remove the battery and charge it again. If you only can make just a few shots with the battery and it stops again, think of buying a new battery. Special when you have not used the camera for a long time, the second and third charge can be better. If not the battery is on its end of life.

SOURCE: FE-280 Lens Blurry Photos and no zoom turns off

You have a bad lens. Unless the camera is in warranty the cost of repairing the lens is higher than the value of your camera. The strange noise you hear is the lens motor trying to move the lens. One solution is to blow compressed air around the lens. Sometimes dust and dirt may jam the lens.

SOURCE: the charger red light kept

Welcome to FixYa.

Red light indicates that the battery is charging. The light will goes off to inform you the charging is complete. Possible that the battery was alreay damaged since you left it charging overnight. Charging time is approximately 5 hours only.

I suggest that you have to replace your battery with a new one.

Feel free to send us your suggestion or comments if this solution was helpful.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Remove the battery and memory card, switch the power switch on for a few seconds and then switch it off. Make sure the battery is fully charged, re-insert the battery and try to switch on again without the memory card in.

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine . Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec .. in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.
i hope it will gives you success

Wont go to picture taking screen or playback menu


A lot of cameras seem to be having this issue (including myself). Eventually it got to a point where the camera doesn't even turn on properly anymore. Better take it back for repair, STAT before it ends up like mine :(

Flickering and loss of colour


Problem now solved. I switched the camera on and off a few times and took several test photos. After a few minutes the problem resolved itself. I suspect the cause was condensation, but cannot be sure.

It wont turn on i tried charging the battery to see if it was dead but it wasnt the battery it wont turn on!


Are you sure it is dead or is it simply that liveview is not showing? A friend of mine thought hers was dead the other week but liveview was turned off. Try taking a few photos and see if it actually takes them?

CAMERA WON'T TURN ON


1) remove the battery and place it in the freezer. for an hour or 3.

2) charge the battery (let the battery unthaw first, don't charge the battery if it is frozen it may explode.)

-if this doesn't work you may need another battery.

Camera Wont turn on and blue light flashes


The possible answer is that batteries are past thier best now and even a 'full' charge is not delivering enough power. treat your self to new batteries.
