Re: camera won't turn on

Plug it into the charger, then remove the battery. Disconnect is and then insert the battery/ That may reset it.

This also sometimes happens when a camera is dropped and the lens assembly is tweaked just a bit. Point it to your face and turn it on. Press on different places on the lens assembly while you toggle it off and on. If it comes out, your lens unit is out of line. You can try moving it side to side and even forcing it a little but it will probably never be just right.

When I turn my camera on I just get a white screen, changed batteries and the same. Removed sd and the same. Seems like everything else is working judging by the input sounds of the buttons and the lens...

Looks like your LCD is bad. You need to replace it. Easiest way is to buy a used camera, which has good LCD through EBAY ( one sold for parts). You may be able to get it cheap under $10. Then replace it yourself. You only need to remove 5-6 screws to open the case. LCD can be easily removed, once the case is open. Be careful not to break the case. You may need a screwdriver set. Buy it for $1 from dollar store. Best of luck.

My S850 won't turn on anymore. The lens is out and open. I can't get it to come on even to close the lens. What can I do about this??

Hello. It sounds like your battery is low on power, or possibly worn out and needing to be replaced. Take your camera into any radio shack and ask them to check the battery for you. a free service. Joe

Green Light Blinks But Does'nt Turn On...

It sounds as though your lens is jammed. The clicking sound is likely the camera trying to open the lens and failing, then it turns itself off. Check with your manufacturer for recalls and technical bullitins. See if they will service the camera under warranty. If you cannot get it serviced economicly at the factory there are repair services on the internet who will work on your camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
