Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have a GC-XA2BU and the camera will not cut on? I have purchased a replacement battery but neither work.

When I first got the camera it turned on giving me two options PC or Wall adapter. I chose PC because that is the only form I had to do any kind of charge. once I plugged the camera in everything froze and now it wil not turn on, I can plug it into the wall or the PC and I get nothing. How can I reset this camera? I left the battery out over night and still nothing this morning

As soon as you connect a camera to a computer, it will stop working, because the USB connection will be used to charge the battery.
If your computer is not correct wired on the USB port, or when you are using a hub, without an external power supply, the battery will not be charged. So you end up with an empty battery and a camera that does not respond.
Try charging the battery on an external charger and remove the USB cable, before switching on the camera. Also check if the USB connector on the camera is free. Avoiding the camera to "think" there is still a USB cable connected.

SOURCE: The battery for my sanyo digital camera won't charge.

I had this same problem with my Sanyo. I went on E Bay and purchased a new battery.. It was about 8 dollars and shipped from China. But it worked when I put the new battery in and charged it.

SOURCE: My camera battery won't charge. I've tried

Perhaps your charger is bad. If not then the battery itself may be the problem. If it is a Lithium ion battery then it is possible that it has gone bad. Many L-ion batteries have a built in chip that determines if the battery can safely be charged. If it, (the chip) determines that it can't then it locks out the battery. You may have to buy another battery

SOURCE: My Sanyo camera VPC-E1500TP froze

hi It is hard to tell with your description. Any bumping or impact? At this point you have to bring near local repair shop. They might charge you around $35 to 85 depend on what they really want to charge. How ever you can check basic thing in your home. (if you have multimeter, you can check battery and charger unit are good or not, ) thanks and best regard!

My wife is complaining that every time she turns off/on the camera she has to reset the data/time. I understand that when the batteries are changed the settings may be lost, but not simply when the camera...


Sounds to me that there may be another battery inside the camera that is going bad.


Issue: Everytime I power on the camera the Date / Time needs to be set.
Solution: Replacing the Date Battery for the PowerShot A480.

Replacing the Date Battery. If the Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, the date battery charge is low and the date and time settings have been lost. Please purchase a lithium coin battery (CR1220) and replace it as follows.
Please note that the first date battery may appear to expire relatively quickly after you purchase the camera. This is because it is installed in the camera at the point of manufacture, not when you make the purchase. caution.gifBe particularly careful to keep the date batteries out of the reach of children. Seek medical assistance immediately if a child swallows a battery since corrosive battery fluids can damage the stomach or intestinal walls. 1. Confirm that the camera power is turned off.
2. Open up the battery door / cover and remove the AA Batteries.
3. Remove the date/time battery holder.
4. Grasp the battery and slide it in the direction of the arrow.

6. Replace the battery holder and battery cover.
7. When the Date/Time menu appears set the date and time.
note.gif After purchasing the camera and turning on the power for the first time, although the Date/Time menu will appear, you do not need to replace the date battery. If you ever dispose of your camera, first remove the date battery for recycling according to the recycling system of your area.

Describe your element gc-822 error Problem I loaded the songs and they wont play. It says "disc error."


check to see if your files are MP4, vs MP3. MP4 files won't play in this player, so you'd have to convert them to mp3.

Battery/Camera problem


Return the battery to Radioshack and try another brand of replacement battery. It is possible that the Radioshack battery is in stock for a long period of time. batterries have limited shelf life and it gets worse if they are left discharged for a long period of time.
