I just put new batteries in and it would not turn on. I put some more batteries in and still did not come on. It was working when I put it up . What do I need to do.

The answer depends on a number if things...the camera itself, the type of batteries it uses, etc.. The first thing I would check is to make sure the batteries themselves are charged and working. If the camera uses conventional batteries (AA, AAA, etc) then this shouldn't be a can always run to the store and buy a brand new pack of batteries (assuming you haven't already). On the other hand, if the batteries are proprietary in design...say the type of lithium batteries that most DSLR's use, this can be a bit more complicated. Remember that in the case of lithium batteries, they are designed to be used...even a brand new lithium battery can easily go bad if left sitting on the shelf too long (this is particularly true of 3rd party batteries and/or inexpensive imports).

Likewise, I would also check the battery charger as well. The camera and battery could be fine, but if the charger isn't working power. In a situation where the camera is charged via a USB port (many compacts can be charged from your computer), I would also check the USB port (and cable)...they CAN become damaged over time.

In such a case, I would try to find another camera of the same make/model to verify that the batteries themselves actually work (and are properly charged). Once that has been addressed, I would likely suspect the camera itself. Since you haven't provided any details regarding make/model, it's hard to be specific here...if it's a higher end camera (such as decent Nikon DSLR), it -may- be worth having repaired (or making a warranty claim if applicable). On the other hand, if it's a lower end consumer product...a compact/point & shoot for example, then it may simply be less expensive to just get another camera (either new, used or refurbished).

I have a Nikon coolpix s6100. I don't use it too often but when I went to use it, it wouldn't turn on, won't even charge. I tried a brand new battery and that didn't work either. Any suggestions?

Check the battery contacts in the camera. They should be clean and shiny. Clean with cotton swabs or dry cloth. No sharp tools. Then also chech the battery door closes correct. There is a switch that should click. And charge the battery outside the camera on a universal charger. Those hints for a start.

New battery but still wont swith on

Be aware the Kodak Lithium CRV3 battery can't be recharged. Even if you have a charger where the battery can be connected to, it is dangerous to do so. It is an non rechargeable battery, and putting a current through the battery can overheat the battery and it even can explode. You never can get any electrical charge in that battery.
But your camera can be used with rechargeable AA NiMH batteries.
You need two and they can be chafed on most commercial (cheap) battery chargers. I do advice to buy a good brand of batteries, because even the better ones will only set you back 15 or 20 dollar. Sometimes you even can buy a set of 4 batteries, with charges (I advice the set) for little more.
When having a set of 4, still try to keep 2 sets of 2 batteries, that you always use together. On set in the camera one as spare.

When you do have new batteries, and the camera still won't switch on, carefully check is all contacts in then camera are clean and shiny. New batteries should have shiny contacts.
Contact can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Never use any sharp tool in or close to a camera. Scratches on a contact will cause oxidation and the camera will be damaged in a short time.

Cub Cadet ZTR will not start

Is the blade engagement off? If that is ok, does the solenoid even click when you put the key to start position? If the solenoid doesn't even click check the battery connections and make sure they are good and clean. If the connections are good, are you sure the new battery is fully charged. If the battery sat around for a long time in the store it could need charged. If all that is good and then you don't get the starter solenoid to click when you put the key in start position, then it is either the seat switch, parking brake switch, handle switches, or mower engage switch keeping it from starting. If all that is ok maybe you have a bad starter solenoid. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

Low Battery Light Even with Brand New Lithium Batteries

If indeed the batteries are brand new and without a doubt charged,
then you definitely have a hardware problem in the camera.

You're probably going to have to give it in to be serviced.

Hope I helped!

Disney Pix Micro Digital - stopped working after 10 minutes

The type or memory in the camera requires a charge in order to store data. So if you have any pictures on the camera it will constantly be pulling a charge from the battery until the battery is completely drained. If you have this problem even with a brand new battery it's possible that the memory may be corrupt and needs to be cleared. To do this just remove the battery and press both buttons several times each to make sure that the camera is completely discharged, replace the battery with a brand new battery and try again. If that fails I'd get in touch with customer service for a replacement.

Canon a 310 takes so long to take a second picture, very slow

I have an A310, and really like the quality of the pictures and videos it takes. But what you describe is not unusual for this particular model camera. Lag between shots in bright sunlight is usually minimal, but may be very pronounced in darker conditions. It's caused by inefficient and slow charging of the camera's flash capacitor.

There's nothing you can do to modify the design of the camera to change this. But you can try to minimize this some by using batteries with higher power rating. Alkaline batteries will not work very well in this camera, even if brand new. Would instead recommend that you consider rechargeable NiMH batteries. They run about $7 these days for a package of four. But they'll save you big bucks in the long run. Look on the package for power rating of 2,500mah or better.
