Question about Optimus DV-3040 Flash Media Camcorder
I borrowed an Optimus digital video camera. After videoing/w talk classic antique cars, tried to connect it to my Imac. Friend didn't give me the USB cable, so I used the one I use for my Casio Camera EX-Z1000; soon after that I wasn't able to turn the video on. Initially, a screen appeared on Optimus w direction to click on webcam which I did. However, immediately after wasn't able to get power (on button) no green light on Optimus. Removed the batteries and that area felt quite warm. I fear using the USB cable has caused the problem. I'm so concerned 'cause it's not mine. I desperatly need your help. Thank you Beverly Babcock
The problem is that the cable you used was for a different camera and may have sent voltage into the video camera and damaged it. There is voltage that comes off of the USB port. Some cables are designed not to allow the voltage to the device. It sounds like the video camera runs on standard batteries and not rechargable. The batteries may have recieved voltage and shorted them out. Did you try installing fresh batteries into the camera and see if it works again? After you install fresh batteries try holding the power button for ten seconds and see if it re-sets it. If you put in new batteries and it does not come on camera may have been damaged.
