It may be something more serious,but the problem you describe is frequently due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean cloth (heavy corrosion buildups may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment, clean the contacts at both ends of the batteries, and reinstall them in the camera. Assuming that the batteries are fresh/fully charged, this takes care of about 90% of the startup problems. I hope it works for you.

Wont turn on


If you think this has to do with the battery power, you also should check the contacts in the battery compartment. If the are not shiny, you can try to clean them with a dry cloth or a cotton swap. Don't use sharp tools in or close by a camera.
Make sure the battery is inserted correct and the battery cover should be locked correct.
If the camera was not used for a long time, perhaps some contacts are oxidised. Those contacts you can switch, try to switch them several times. Open and close the battery door several times. Press the on of button several times. Put the battery in and remove it several times. And hope the contacts will work again.

Can't send or recieve texts on my Samsung T528g straight talk phone


Switch the phone off and remove the battery. Leave the battery out for about 5 minutes then replace and switch the phone back on. leave the phone switched on for about another five minutes before attempting to text again. This cured the same problem on the same phone for me.

2006 vw jettA 2.5....trouble starting


I had to take my car back to the dealership twice. First, they replaced the ignition switch. 3 days later, my car wouldn't start again. So I took it back and they called VW - VW said to replace the steering column module. I asked my dealer why they didn't replace the steering colum module first - they said that even if they had replaced that first, the old ignition switch would have shorted out the steering column module. Whatever.
$600 later my car has been fine for about 3 weeks now. If it happens again I will keep you posted.
Good luck!

Fails to start Ford Fiesta Freestyle 2002


This may be a bad connection of the battery cables to the battery. I would remove them and clean them both.
Question - If you jump start the car when this happens, does it start right away or still buzz? If yes, then I lean toward battery connections or battery. Also, when this happens, turn on the headligts and see if they remain bright when the key is turned to "start". If yes, then iI lean towrds a bad battery connection or an internal, intermittent short in the battery.
If you know how to jumper the starter under the hood by a jumper wire from the battery to the small wire to the starter solenoid, that would bypass the ignition switch "start" circuit. If it starts then, I would replace the ignition switch. Good luck. please report progress.

Sony RM-ASP001 for 400 disk changer stopped working


Try the command code switch. I recently had a similar problem when my remote suddenly stopped working. It worked fine one time but nothing the next time I tried it.

I checked the emitter with a digital camera and found it was not working. I did the remote reset (remove batteries and push all the buttons twice, reinsert batteries) and the emitter was now working. However, the remote would still not control the base unit. I did the remote base code reset (push power, volume and TV/DVD buttons together) but this did not help. I then checked the command code switch. This is a small three position slide switch located in the battery compartment on the remote. I slid the switch back and forth several times returning to the default number one setting where it was before. I did not change anything on the base unit but the remote now worked.

Hope this helps.

K800i PHONE DEAD


Try this, for I had the same several times.step 1) Take out the battery completely and bring it back in again. Turn the phone on and if it still doesn't work it might be the case that the phone needs to be charged first. do step 1 again but don't turn the phone on but charge it for about 1 hour and check it again.Good luck, Rebecca

if this is a desktop: Did you check the power supply? try to replace it with a new one

Laptop: Try to run the machine without the battery plugged in....straight with the adapter....If the laptop still restarts...it's a manufacturing defect which should be replaced by the OEM.

Yaesu FT-727R


Hi,

The Yaesu FT727R does not have any internal fuse that I know of. Straight from the Battery + terminal it goes to the on/off switch (that is coupled to the volume control). From the switch it goes to circuitry (PCB). Incidentally, it is the battery that normally has a thermal switch/fuse that cuts off when a certain temperature is reached (when charging).

Other than check the battery terminals/contacts for corrosion and do a little abrasive cleaning, am afraid you'll have to open the unit for a look and see. Should you be interested, a schematic diagram is available here.

Good luck and kind regards.
