This may be similar to another solution posted. Try heavy duty batteries - I used ACDelco Super Alkaline, but any brand of "heavy duty" AA should work. Make sure battereis are not cold; low temp causes any battery to lose power. If fresh heavy duty batteries do not help, it may need professional service. (DO NOT try to force the lens back to retracted position - something WILL break.)

Lens on my S7000 doesn't retract when switched off - now permanently extended - and camera dead


This is going to require service / repair at the shop, not something you will be able to correct.

I have had my camera for about 4-5 years now and my battery wouldnt hold a charge for the past several months then it got to the point where it wouldnt turn on at all, so I assumed I just needed a new...


Are the new batteries exactly the same as the original battery or are they comparable substitutes? Some cameras will not operate unless the manufacturer's own batteries are used.

This may not do anything, and you may have already thought of this, but here goes...

1. Take out the SD card if you have one in the camera.

2. Remove the batteries and leave them out for 24 hours. Put in GOOD batteries and DO NOT PUT THE SD CARD BACK IN THE CAMERA.

3. Power up the camera. See what happens.
If you face the same problem then you have to reinstall the fireware from service center. Thanks.

Camera stopped taking pictures


Same thing happened to me a while ago. I was in a panic. I turned it on and off several times...no change. Finally, I turned the camera to the off position, took the battery out of the camera for about 30 seconds and put it back in again and it worked fine. No problem since.

Flash not working


Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Bad batteries can cause that. The flash module needs alot of power to charge. Your camera will still work, but without enough power to charge the flash module, it may take along time. Again.
Try fresh batteries.

Red light continually flashes, and won't take picture


Set the camera to anything except no flash. Turn it off. Take out the battery. Wait 5-10 seconds. Put the battery back in. The flash should now work until you turn the camera off again (and then you must remove/replace the battery to get the flash working again).

The flash requires some kind of "master reset" to work. Haven't found a permanent solution to this.

No Power


most likely you have blown the battery probally putting too many volts into the camera and you might need to get a new battery. i had the same proble with my portabe dvd player and a new battery worked.
