Well, first I would say you may be dealing with batteries that aren't recommended by the manufacturer. this can cause power issues. I was also going to suggest resetting the camera, but you can't turn it on, so that's out. I agree with Jackboy. Something's amiss here and, unless you dropped it, you may just have a lemon.

SOURCE: my fe-210/x-775 keeps showing battery

if it uses AA-try a set of energizer lithium batterys as a experiment-i can pull 300-500 shots on a single set-some cameras are very strange about batterys and it's trial and error w/types-own a sony and reg batterys last 20 pics and dies-lithium have been fantastic for me

SOURCE: the battery seemed to die

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Hello, have you tried changing the batteries in your mouse? They are probably dead or dying and that is why it is not working. Also, try restarting the computer. If you cannot even use a regular wired usb mouse, there may be something going on. Try changing the batteries, restarting the computer, and using a regular usb and a regular PS/2 mouse.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Camera wont even turn on, dont know whats wrong,?


Usually that indicates that the main battery needs replacement. The camera will detect the low battery charge and disable the flash.

If the camera is more than a year old or you take a lot of ppictures then this is most likley your problem.

Wont turn on but light is blinking


Are there any error messages on the LCD display?

Will the camera lens stay out when the camera is turned on?

Can you still take a photo/flash/sound without seeing the photo?

If the camera will not turn on even with a fresh set of batteries it could have a system or lens error in the camera.

a possible lens jamb when closed and the green led on top comes on then shuts off after the lens attemps to extend but cant.

Mind did the same thing. Try taking out the memory card. If it works after that, you'll have to buy a new memory card.
