Sounds like the contact points may be corroded or it could be just one contact where the battery ends actually touch a spring and there should also be another metal conact point if either of these are rusted they may just need cleaning or worst case replaced, doesn't matter what brand name you use they all can leak acid, when buying batteries make sure when you choose your batteries that both ends look solid and there is NO moisture of any kind. Hope this helps.

Hi Jerrel Castille,

Request you to try following the below steps which might help:

    (1)Turn off the computer.
    (2)Remove all the external peripherals like AC Adaptor, flash drives, battery, etc.
    (3)Press and hold the power button for 30sec which releases the static on the computer (if any)
    (4)Put back the battery and plug in the AC Adaptor.
    (5)Let the computer charge for some time.
    Now try turning on the computer. If still same issue then check if there are any series of beep codes emitted from the computer and see if there is a Power/ Battery status light glowing near the front (touchpad) of it.

New batteries but wont turn on


Try the following:
1. Ensure the batteries are indeed, charged. Sometimes even new ones are bad.
2. Ensure battery polarity is observed when loading batteries.
3. Make sure the flash ON/OFF switch is not loose or damaged.
4. With the flash mounted on your camera and the power switch to ON, try resetting the camera to factory default settings. This MIGHT clear any errors and allow the flash to work.

Good luck!

Phone wont turn on


Use a volt meter (may try one at radio shack) to see if there is any voltage in the battery. Damaged batterys will sometimes short and the meter will tell if you need a new battery.

My camera wont stay on after i turn it on


Hi. It can be a problem with flash capacitor. To check if it is the case you should be able to power your camera at least for 10 seconds. If you can not power your camera for this time from batteries, try to use external DC 7.4V 2A power supply. After powering your camera just follow this procedure. 1. Turn on the camera. 2. Turn off the flash by pressing flash button (be sure that flash is OFF but not in AUTO regime). 3. Turn off the camera. 4. Turn on the camera. If after these operations camera can be powered from batteries and you can make pictures than the problem is in the flash capacitor which should be replaced. Or you still can make pictures with your camera without using a flash.

Flashing lights


I had the same problem. 1 of four way's can fix it. #1 Put a batt. that has a little charge in that flashing spot 1st. and see if that works. #2 put the batt. in that flashing slot first and then in the 1st slot, If that did'nt work, #3 Put Batt. in backwards for 1 sec. in and out fast. and I do say very fast, In that flashing spot. #4 buy a new one. The one that fixed mine was #1 and it stoppppped flashing, The order I put them in was - 3-1-2-4 I put in #3 batt. first, it was the one flashing And it worked, You may have a bad batt. or it's on it's way out, but try It. worked for me!
