Power button problem

I think someone plugged the AC charger into the wrong plug (possibly the acc). Now to turn off the camera, I need to take out the battery. Does anyone have an idea how expensive of a problem this is?

Re: Power button problem

The ac charger wont fit in the acc. , more likely the power switch is broke, if you send it in to sony they can tell you the cost of repair.

My TG-810 won't charge, the lens keeps clicking open and shut...

I found that if you take the battery out, connect the charger, then slot the battery back in it started working. Not sure if it helps.

I was tring to charge the camera M1073IS by mistake i did put a charger that has 9V instate of 5V the screen went bright wight for about 10 seconds and then i took the charger off and put it back again not...

Well, that was nearly double the voltage required for the camera. Usually you cant even plug in the wrong charger.

In this case, you may have destroyed the camera's battery.
To test this, you can go to an electronics store for them to test, or you can purchase a replacement battery (hang on to the receipt) and if it does not work in the camera, you may return it. Be sure to ask someone in the store if they accept opened packages, explain the situation, and be sure that is within their return policy.

If the new battery does not operate the camera properly, it is entirely possible that you overpowered the camera beyond its tolerances and it would have to be repaired or replaced by Kodak.

Sorry I dont have better news.

Kodak digital camera not charging/ indicator not shown while plug in charger

Either an error occurred during charging, an AC power disruption occurred during charging, the wrong AC power adapter is being used, batteries are over- discharged, batteries are defective, or no batteries are installed in the camera.
Try charging the batteries a couple of times. If that fails, try charging the batteries in an external charger. If the batteries still will not charge, purchase new batteries and try again

My Kodak Easyshare V1233 will only power up when plugged into the wall charger. Even after staying on the charger it will not power on unless plugged in.

Kodak has 3 types of charger that can be connected to a wall socket
USB AC Adapter - is especially useful when traveling, away from your computer, or just plain on-the-go. Connect your camera's USB cable to the adapter and plug it into a wall outlet to conveniently charge your camera.
5V AC Adapter - Provides in-camera charging for all KODAK EASYSHARE M and V Series Digital Cameras
Input: AC 100-240 V 50/60 Hz Output : DC 5.0 V
3V AC Adapter - Provides direct power to your camera but it will not charge the camera battery
Input: AC 100-240 V 50/60 Hz Output : DC 3.0 V

* You need to check the type of adapter your using. If your using the 5V AC adapter or USB adapter and the camera won't charge the battery contact kodak support line 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK) for possible repair.

Camera won't turn on

I am assuming that the power does not go on or it immediately turns off as it is turned on.

Try the docking station or the 3.3 AC adapter to the camera. Plug that in to live power. If you hear the lens motor (by default the lens is retracted to closed position when plugged to AC power), then the camera is operational. If not, there is power failure with the camera.

If the lens motor work, then try to turn the camera while plugged to AC power. If it turns on, then there is something wrong with the battery or with the chamber. If the camera does not turn on, then check the button board for a bad power switch.

Check the LCD closely under a bright light when you do this test. You may see a faint a flash of display that disappears. I have not figured out what causes this. This would mean that camera power supply is working but nothing is telling for the camera to stay on.

Samsung Digimax U-CA 5 : won't turn on....

You might want to try a new battery for it.

Before you do that, plug the camera into the charger and see if if opens. If that works, you need a new battery. It isn't charging anymore.

Used wrong charger -- possible overload of my camera, battery or charger?

CORRECTION and RESOLUTION -- turns out it wasn't the wrong charger (the other one won't even fit), but instead must have been some other overload of charger, battery or camera. There is apparently no way to reset the camera other than through the menu (must turn camera on -- according to Casio support). Short story is that it needs to be sent in for repair. Trying to find receipt, but should be under warranty.

Overseas Use

Yes. The power supplies and battery chargers supplied with all Powershot Digital Cameras are designed to work on input voltages from 100-240 volts (50/60 Hz). The only item that you may need is a plug adapter that allows you to plug the U.S. type power supply or battery charger into the foreign type wall outlet. Plug adapters should be easily available at a local electronics store.
