The problem you describe is frequently due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera preventing full battery power from flowing into the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

My Nikon D3100 will not turn on. Is there something wrong with the batteries/memory card? Or rather the camera body itself?


It could be either the battery or the camera.

If you have a second battery, try it. If it works with the second battery then the first battery is bad.

If you don't have a second battery, take your camera and battery to a good photo store. They should have a second battery to try. You might be able to test your battery with one of theirs. This will tell you whether the battery or the camera is bad.

I'd say your battery is dying, or your alternator is not charging it fully. If it is 3yrs or older, suspect the battery.

Hey i just got my sony vx1000 and its not turning on. i put a battery in the camer and it turned on and mediately turned off and now the battery isnt coming out it or turn on. please help i dont know what...


Hi,

Judging by the cameras response the battery may be low on charge. Try removing the battery (there usually is a button close to where the battery is inserted) and charging it overnight. If it still does not work the battery pack may be dead or worn out. You may need to get a new one as batteries gradually loose their capacity overtime and eventually die.

If the battery is a Ni-Cd or Ni-MH you can attempt to revive it by charging it fully, then discharging it by running the camera, and repeat this cycle many times.

Thanks for using FixYa,

My battery is fully charged but when i turn the camera on it shuts right back off


SOunds like your battery is bad. try discharing it :
  1. Place the battery in your camera until it itself turns off. In this situation, the battery is fully discharged.
  2. Take out your battery and slide it into your battery charger.
  3. Connect your charger with power to fully charge the battery. It is normal for a new battery that battery indicator shows 100% capacity in 10 to 15 minutes. Please keep charging until there is no time left for charging.
  4. Fully charged and fully discharged or "cycled" as much as five times to condition them into performing at full capacity.
Try it and see if it works? If the batteries are not rechargeable then the problem is in the cameras power supply and you need to take it in or replace it.

Canon 40D can not turn on


Same problem. Fully charged main battery. In my case, I hadn't used the camera in over 6 months. All I did was pull the main battery and then pulled the small CR 2016 button cell battery located inside the main battery compartment and re-inserted both batteries. The camera made a quiet click and then turned on with the main power switch and asked to reset the date and time. Works fine now. If this doesn't work just purchase a new button cell.

Did you put a memory card in the camera?
My camera did this today, and I resolved it by putting a memory card in, but even when one has been out before it still turned on, so I'm not sure that is the resolution. Did you ever find out what was causing it?
