Camera wont switch on

This is a new camera. We were learning how to use it and switchd it off, and then tried to switch it on. The screen goes on for a second or two and goes off, and we get a few short beeps. The batter is fully charged. I have taken the battery out a number of times with no luick. Any ideas?

Hte battery LID has not closed properly.
or u must have kept the auto shut down settings very low.
this can be resolved by resetting the camera.
Have you tried a hard reset on their camera by removing the main power batteries for 60 seconds and the reinserting them as if it were the first time power up. This may not fix your particular problem, but when the processor that runs all of the electronic features of the camera gets confused, this is the best way to clear its confusion.
even if problem is not cleared take it to service centre.

Screen black or with lines/check

The camera has a system control board problem, this controls all the key operations of the camera. Unfortuneately cost to repair would not warrant the expence to persue the matter.

HELP ~~~~~Camera wont turn on

You didn't provide a make or model for the camera, but if it's a Kodak, fixing your problem could be as simple as cleaning the battery contacts in the camera, or the solution could be a lot more complex and expensive. Here's a link to the Kodak Help Center - it provides a simple Q&A format to diagnose the problem and propose a solution.

maybe this works: turn your camera on in play mode (if you have play button press it to turn on camera) and if your camera hase a shoot-play switch select play mode and then turn your camera on.) repeat this until lens goes back. I hope this works...

Try it with a different set of battery. It is possible that one of your battery is "dead" or close to it, and the camera shuts down.

You have to find the bad battery.

It worked for me.

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fi x it.
