Camera will not turn on

My camera will not turn on,  I have checked the battery.  I've tried charging it.  There is no lights, showing that it's charging.  It will not do anything.  No, I have not dropped it or damaged it.  I keep it in a case and put up.

    My camera will not turn on. Have to take out battery and put it back in... Even then it still doesn't always turn on; as if bad connexion between battery and camera. Battery is fully charged.. Getting worse...

    I charged the battery (brand new) less than a week ago, today I took about 3 pictures, the camera went off and would not turn on. Note since the initial charge I've been playing with it fo familiarize myself with this camera, could this be due to low battery. I also notice that at the initial charge no lights went on. Please help.

    I tried charging the battery. Sometimes the lights come on, other times they don't. I have the Kodak V1003 and I love it when it works, but its a headache when I have to remove the battery then put it back in just to catch special moments. Good luck if its spur of the moment pictures because its not reliable to turn on sometimes.

    When I turn my camera on a black flower like object appears on the view screen. I am not able to see any images on the view screen. I have only used my camera a few times.

    Camera will not turn on. Battery will not charge - there are no lights. In other words, the camera is dead and I cannot use it.

MY Hc v110 Camcorder is not turning on. I've checked the battery and that's completely fine. HELP

How do you know the battery is actually "fine"? Did you put a meter on it or have you tried another battery? The battery can show to be charged but not working if it's gone bad.

Also, try removing the battery for at least 60 minutes, check and clean the contacts on the battery and in the camera, then install the battery and see if it will start. Sometimes removing the battery for some time will reset the camera.

I haven't turned the camera on for a couple of years. I've tried charging the battery, but I can't get it to power up. Do I need to replace battery or is it something else?

If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

My finepix s3400 will not turn on. I've tried almost everything and I'm really annoyed. Is there something i can do to fix it?

Mine wont turn on either, the battery is fully charged and inserted properly. I can tell this as the pre-flash light comes on but nothing else, the only way to get the pre-flash light off again is to remove the battery.

Very low battery life

I have the same camera. It sounds to me that there is a fault with the camera itself and not the battery. You might be better sending Canon an email and asking them. My battery lasts forever so I would think if you already purchased another battery you've eliminated that problem. It might be the contacts inside the camera that are not accepting the full charge. Does the camera battery on screen show that it's full after you've charged it? Maybe trying charging it overnight and then trying it out the next day.

If unused for any length of time, rechargeable batteries lose their ability to retain a charge. Try it with a brand new, fully-charged battery. FWIW, I recharge all my camera and flashgun batteries monthly.

Red light indicates that the camera is out of charged., Try to charged your battery for 3-4 hrs if you encounter flashing red on a fully charged battery you need to call kodak 1 800 235 6325 ext 12

You can charged you camera using 5V AC Adaptor or a USB cable taht attached into the computer

I am trying to charge the battery. The charger is flashing a red light and the battery won't seem to charge. Placed it in the camera just in case, and it won't turn on.

Well, with my Nikon, the light flashes to show the battery is charging. It stays on when it's charged. My battery and spare battery are 2 years old and working fine. I'd say wait till it stops flashing...hour or 2 in my case, though I never let them run down all the way.
