SOURCE: Camera will not turn on

I think the heat did it. If you read the instruction book, it most likely has a page that says no excessive heat or cold. If you bought it a week ago, take it back to the dealer for warranty repair.

SOURCE: camera was working fine...all of a sudden,it would not turn on...thought maybe battery was dead,tried to recharge it,light would not go on,tried another charged battery,still would not work

This error is either a flash circuit or a lens error. One of the two need replacement.

SOURCE: Battery life

The rechargeables are only meant to last a couple years maximum (pretty good that you got three out of them). Also rechargeable NiMH's have approximately 5 times the power of standard alkaline batteries. Alkaline batteries should only be used in emergencies in digital cameras as they will only last for a short while before they are drained (as you've discovered).

The obvious solution is that it's time to consider purchasing a new set of rechargeable NiMH batteries. Look on the package for a power rating of at least 2,500 mah. Avoid batteries that do not list the power rating as they are generally inferior batteries.

SOURCE: Was taking pictures and the camera shut down, put in new batteries and nothing happened

It could be that you have the auto power off set to a short time like a minute

I can put new batteries in, turn the camera on & take pictures for a few minutes, turn the camera off, when I try to turn it back on the batteries are dead.


Greta, If they are cheaper batteries, that is probably the problem.
CAMERAS TAKE A LOT OF JUICE, try a better grade battery like Duracell and see if you get better results, make sure batteries have fresh date code and not expired

2yrs old. Went thru 3 sets of batteries to get 20 pictures. Dead again. What`s the story?


Sounds like you have a short in the wiring. This is repair shop stuff, or buy a new camera time. Usually, if it is a point and shoot , it is not worth sending for repair as you'll playas much as a new camera is worth. I would look for a new camera, personally. Good luck.

My batteries went dead and camera shut off. Now I


if the camera wont turn on remove the memory card and make sure your pictures are transfered. Try using regular disposable batteries. Also when trying to turn it on try holding down the power button for 5 seconds. If it still doesnt turn on coud be a broken switch connection.

Does not turn on, bought new battery, still not charging.


I found out that the battery was put in upside down! I was not sure if this was the case because I was able to close the camera. I tried turning it around but it would not fit. I did not try to put in upside down. I think my grandson took it out by mistake and he put it back wrpng.
Unfortunately, there is no safeguard or guide, to stop one from inserting the battery incorrectly!

"turn camera off then on again" message


There could be a short in the battery contacts in your camera. You should inspect them for corrosion or oxidation.

Low battery warning


It's something with the camera. I have the same camera and the same problem. I bought 2 brand new batteries, charged them, and the very first thing the camera did when I installed the new batteries was tell me that they were dead!! Grrr....

As a workaround, when it tells you the battery is dead, just open the battery door, close it, and try again. Repeat if necessary. With my camera, doing this lets me use the same battery for days and days. The battery is NOT dead - it's just a faulty warning message.

CAMERA WON'T TAKE PICTURES?


i don't know what age the camera is, did you try full batteries , normally it shouldn't do this it must have a defect if the batteries are not the problem..

perhaps contact the dealer see what is wrong with it..
