SOURCE: Camera Won't Turn On

Hi I'm sorry to say, the news is probably not good! The impurities in rain water make it an excellent conductor, so you were lucky the drops didn't bridge some pins and kill the camera outright. It is quite common for electronics to get rained on, and for people to try them a few hours later, and all appears ok, the problem is, the water sits on the circuit board and corrodes the pins on components before drying, and often the pins are eaten right off when the repair shop opens the unit. If you can find a shop without a diagnostic fee up front, it may be worth taking it in, I have repaired units that were completely green inside, although commonly they cannot be repaired. If something like this happens again, don't power up the camera, and take it to a shop immediately, explain the situation, and the tech. will take it apart right away, and dry the insides with a hair dryer. If this is done right away, and you haven't turned on the camera, they are often good as new. If you are mechanical, you could do this yourself, but cameras can be very tricky to take apart without damaging something. Good Luck!

SOURCE: L 100 digital camera is not switching on though the battery is fully charged.

Try removing the battery for a couple of seconds then insert it again. Click on the power button, it should turn on and turn it off again to close the lens.

SOURCE: even though my camera is on charge, it won't turn on

It may be something more serious, or your new batteries may be worn out to the point that they won't accept a charge, but the problem you describe is frequently due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean cloth (heavy corrosion buildups may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment, clean the contacts at both ends of the batteries, and reinstall them in the camera. Assuming that the batteries are fresh/fully charged, this takes care of about 90% of the startup problems. I hope it works for you.

Camera doesn't show complete battery charge within one hour or even two hours

If this is the charging time given in the manual, it may be a little 'optimistic'. Is the battery taking any charge during this period ? if it is, then continue charging until it registers as fully charged. If not, then the battery may need replacing.

340 battery/charge

Doesn't this player use a normal AA battery? If not, and it has a rechargeable battery built in then there are 2 possibilities. One, the cheap battery you got from China is no good. I always wonder how they can sell batteries for under $10 and ship all the way from China for free. I suspect it's because they are pretty crappy batteries. two, your player has a short in it somewhere that is draining the battery. i have an iPod that does that. I fully charge it and turn it off. Next morning it's dead again and i've replaced the battery numerous times.

ES65 restore firmware

Perhaps you still remember the add from IBM. Where the son says, or we put in the power plug!!! There are more errors with portable equipment caused by empty batteries than all other causes together.
Please remove the battery and charge the battery, before placing it back. And even when the charger indicates the battery is full, it is no 100 % guaranty it is. Even almost new batteries, can lose capacity within minutes. Those are defect and most of the time not to recover.
Be aware, to change firmware, if it should be available, you need a working camera. And a fully charged battery, because if during the update the battery runs out of power, your camera won't work again, without an intervention of the repair shop.
Make it a habit to charge the batterie at least every 3 months, even if you don't use the camera for a longer period.

My Asus K55A-DH71 laptop, was fully charged less than 24 hours ago; it hasn't been used or on since, and when i powered it up, it only had 6% power.

Fully charge it and take the battery out and let it sit for 24 hours and then put the battery back and power it on. Sounds like the battery is losing its life.

My vivitar x345 wont hold charge

If the recharageable 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 andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and graduallythe charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The batteryshows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops offto zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptablecharge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

I fully charge the phone but within 48 hours,even without using it, have to charge it again

Don't panic this is quite normal.
Even when you are not using the phone it is still on and actively connected to your service network. Therefore using battery power.

Actually to get 48 hours from your handset is very good.
Normally you would have to re-charge the 81xx series at least every 24 hours.
I was charging mine every 12-14 hours.

THE BATRTERY runs down within 12-24 hours -- even when the camera is off.

You have an older camera, so your battery is probably getting worn down. How much of a charge does your battery hold? Batteries often lose some of their charge after sitting for a bit, and it's possible that it holds such a little charge that the charge lost while sitting is enough to drain it completely. If this came out of nowhere, because batteries lose capacity gradually, then it's a defect with the battery. Either way, the only way to solve this problem is to get a new battery. Considering the fact that your camera seems pretty nice, it's probably worth the money. I don't know of any places off hand that carry your specific battery, but some good places to look are Amazon and B&H, or even Nikon themselves. Hope this helps, good luck to you.

My canon EOS 450D battery loses power within 5mins

If it's an original battery, call Canon, if you've only charged it once, I expect the camera is still under warranty. I've had lots of dealings with Canon Photography, the usually give extremely good customer service.

If it's a cheap one you bought of ebay - that's why!
