Camera won't reset

I took out battery to recharge. Placed battery back into camera after charged; however, when I turned on camera, the shutter goes in and out a couple of times and then a message pops on screen saying to turn off camera and turn back on. I do this, and same message again. Why can't I get this message to go away, and be able to take pictures again??

SOURCE: my sony dsc-w50 camera won't totally boot up

It is a fairly regular occurance at our shop to see a Sony camera which, when you turn it on, extends and retracts the lens slightly several times and then says "turn the power off then on again". We were unable to find the cause of this issue for quite a while and ended up forwarding cameras with this problem to Sony for repair. Recently one of our techs found the issue to be a "lazy" focus motor. The motor was still functioning, however it was not functioning 100% and did not perform as the camera expected, causing the error. This is not necessarily the issue with your camera, but it is likely given how many Sony's we have seen doing this. If the camera is under warranty, definately send it in. If it is not, find another repair provider as Sony will charge you quite a bit for the repair. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

A couple of things to try, and if these don't work you will probably need to have it serviced.

1. There is a reset button which may fix it. It's described on the first page of "Troubleshooting" in your manual. The camera diagrams at the front of your manual will help you find it, near the connector cover.

2. If it doesn't work after the reset button, pull the battery out and leave it out for two days, then put it back and try again.

SOURCE: the lens does not stop popping in and out plus it says to turn off and on again

I followed the advice on a couple of other boards which suggests you actually give the camera a few hard whacks on a tile floor. That worked for some people. With me, after whacking didn't work I took a knife used it to pry up the edge of the lense while it was trying to open. A little of that worked for me.

You can't imagine the sense of accomplishment I felt when the thing finally started working again after all the banging and prying. It's a tough little bugger!

SOURCE: When I turn my camera on it says "Access" then a message comes up

This is a firmware problem that is common with many many digital cameras. It will have to be upgraded. The company will do this for $50
Otherwise you may be able to find a kit online and do it which would be hard to located

My olympus camera won't charge properly


If the camera battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

I have a brand new Nikon D3100. The battery was fully charged and placed in the camera. I took about 4 photos, and then turned the camera off. When I turned it back on the battery wasn't working to...


The solution to your problem is simple, Kathrynbax.


The battery never comes in fully charged. It's always charged only so you may be able to check if your camera is working. I suggest, you take out your battery and put it to charge for exactly 90 minutes as the manual says. Then I'm sure you won't face any such problems.


Hope this solves your problem.

Good day!

Camera won't switch on, put new batteries in it, took a photo to test, since then it won't switch on.


If you were able to take one shot before the camera packed up it can be that the battery does not have charge on it and so after the first shot it has drained the battery. So check out the charge on it or repeat charging to test once again.
Other wise it can be that the camera control unit is faulty. Try and reset by removing battery for a while and trying once again.

The light on the end of the dock stays red. Battery when recharged turns green. When placed back on the dock, then the light goes back to red.


Turn your camera on and look at the battery life after you had it charging for a while. your rechargable batteries may be bad or getting bad. Try trading out the rechargeable batteries or try plugging in your charger on a different outlet at home

I have the same problem


The weaker the battery, the longer it takes the flash to charge. After taking a flash picture, you're supposed to wait until the flash has recharged before pushing the shutter button again.

Nikon D90 battery reset


Seems as if you've killed the battery. You might try charging it again.

Does the camera work with a different battery? If so, I'd just buy a new battery and toss the old one.

Camera will not function


Try a new battery in the camera, if that does not work, decide if the camera is worth sending to canon to see if they can work out the proublem. Though this is likely to be costly, you maybe better of buying a new camera instead.

Hp 945 frosen with red light on


I posted on July 16 with this flashing problem and played around and got mine working again.
Originally I would charge through the docking port. What I did was pull the charged rechargable batteries out of the camera and took the charging cable from the docking station and pluged it directly into the port on the side of the camera. The camera started working again. Then while the charging cable was pluged into the camera, I reinstalled the rechargable batteries. After installing the batteries I unpluged the charging cable and the camera still works. I have shot and downloaded from the camera pictures with no more problems. Use the docking for downloading pictures and the side port on the camera for recharging the batteries.
I do not know if this has anything to do with the original problem but I did not have any problems with this camera until I placed it on the docking station with non-rechargible batteries.
Hope this helps.

Rechargeable batterie won't work in my Camera.


Not sure what camera you have, but some cameras require a very steady power supply voltage. Also not sure how old your rechargeable batteries are either, but batteries (alkaline and rechargeable decay over time. With the rechargeable ones, the more you use it, the less it can charge to full capacity over time. For example, if your rechargeable battery is supposed to charge up to 1.5V, over a period of a year with constant recharges, you can test with a volt meter and see that it never really goes back up to 1.5V, but more like 1.48V, 1.45V or maybe even 1.4V.

Depending on the camera or other item you use rechargeable batteries on, it can adapt to low voltages with special circuitry inside (but only to a certain limit, when a battery is old, it is old).

You can try buying a new set of rechargeable batteries and use it few times and see if this fixes the issue. If not, your camera may be faulty and just draining the battery (not too likely, but it happens).

Depressing my shutter button on my Fuji FinePix E550 causes it to turn off. When I turn it back on there is a no image message. Is it cheaper to buy a new camera than to have it fixed? Thanks for help


You just need new batteries. That's what the E550 does when the batteries get too low. Please get the latest rechargables. Many of the ordinary AA batteries won't last 50 pictures. Fuji also is rather poor telling you how to charge the rechargables. When the screen goes blue when you take a picture, you must use the camera's de=charging system before recharging--otherwise the rechargables will not take a full charge--that's what's likely happened to you!
