Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera

Not powering on

I tried to turn the camera on but noticed the power light did not come on. I thought it was a battery problem so I recharged the batteries and tried them and it still did not come on. I then tried some new batteries but have not been able to get any power at all in the camera, I bought it in April 2005.

Oh my god! I thought for sure my camera was irrepairable;
I found this thread to see if you had any suggestions. I took out the batteries and card, blew into it, and now it works! Bless you and thanks!
I want to know what is the scientific principal behind this ?

I have a olympus 7010 digital camera. everytime i try to turn the camera on, a orange light flashes and turns off. i've tried charging the battery numerous times.

The Olympus Stylus 7010 has a rechargeable lithium ion battery that will eventually wear out-- your battery could be at the point where it does not hold a charge any longer.
Have you previously noticed a degradation in battery life? If so, you can try replacing the battery or connecting the camera to a constant power source (like an AC adapter) to troubleshoot.

My camera is on i plug it into my computer with a usb connection and the camera turns off i unplug from computer it turns on

Hello, if your trying to upload photos make the connections first then turn on the camera.You should receive a new hardware notice or a request to choose a program to proceed. If your camera has a rechargeable battery try connecting it and leave the power off ,if you get a steady green light on the camera it is charging the battery.

NIKON D70 Camera not working after battery change

You may just have two bad batteries, or maybe your charger is bad.

You should have a DC power adapter with the camera, plug that in and see if the camera works longer with it.

You should also have an adapter to use CR02 batteries with the camera. You can buy three of the CR02 batteries at the drugstore (they are NOT rechargeable) and see if the camera works.

If any of these things work, you have bad batterie.

If they don't work, then there is likely some kind of short in the camera and you will need to send it to a service `center or your local camera shop. You might also just take it there and see if they have a known good D70 battery they could try for you.

With new batteries already put in--no power

Are you using rechargeable batteries, and have tried lots of different batteries? Also, sometimes rechargeable batteries fresh out of the package can be dead or have very little juice. Just a thought...Hard to say that's it though if you were having the same thing happen before...

Samsung S630 camera says "low battery" then shuts off

This camera needs rechargeable batteries usually lasts about a week with much use. I thought what a waste of batteries then tried these rechargable and the situation hasn't occured . it is probably because it is small digtal camera which uses alot of power.

My Jazz Dv179 Digital Camcorder Won't recharge

The battery in the camera is likely not a rechargable one. Check the print on the battery. Mine was not so I assume your is not as well. The maker of the camera was pretty cheap not supplying a rechargable battery, for the price they ask for the camera.

Canon S2 IS won't turn on with rechargeable batteries??

I would let them charge til you get an indication that they are done. TV remotes require very little power to operate, while digital cameras need a lot, so that's why the batteries would work in the remotes though not fully charged.
