Won't turn on,even with new battery. Turned on the first time,but 2 weeks later it won't,even charging battery again. Hardly had any use since new, appro 3 years old.


More likely to be a battery issue than the camera.

Do the batteries work in another device? They may have just deteriorated with age or being left uncharged.

Are you sure they are rechargeable batteries?

Try replacing them , even with cheap generic batteries if they are AA/AAA just to verify the camera works.

Double check you have them oriented correctly when putting them in.

My Samsung WB100 turns off after switch on. Got new batteries and same problem plus 'old' batteries are still good even though camera said they needed replacing after a few days minimal use.


Make sure you are using name brand high quality batteries and not some generic from China. Camera require a great deal of power to boot up.

The camera will not turn on even though batteries are new.


Hi Kris - If the camera worked before changing the batteries, but now it doesn't; check the batteries for proper insertion. If just one battery was installed incorrectly, the camera will not power up. Also, check the charge of the batteries. If even a single dead battery was included in the mix of new batteries, the camera will not power up either.

If all these conditions check out ok, the problem may be related to defective hardware (power switch, lens, etc.). When the camera is powered on, it goes through a quick self test. If any of these self tests fail, the camera shuts off immediately. This will often require that the camera be evaluated professionally. Hopefully, you'll find the problem is battery related.

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.

My camera won't turn on.


If you've recently dropped the camera you may have lens damage that is causing the camera to shut down. If you haven't dropped it, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

"memory car is write protected"


Turn off camera
Take battery/batteries out.
Take out memory card (you may lose data)
Make sure write protection switch is in OFF position
Replace memory card
Replace battery/batteries properly.
Turn on camera.

If this doesn't work then you may want to simply contact manufacturer, some are very helpful and some even offer free tech support for older products.
