    My new Vivitar Viicam 5340 has been charged all night and all day. It turns on when on the docking station but goes off as soon as I lift it off. I have to put it back on the docking station to turn it off. How do I get it on? The icon which shows battery indication is not on the screen.

    I may have tested my camera maybe once from I received it. The battery was reading low and kept cutting off once I tried turning it on, however the battery is not charging once placed on the cradle.

    This is the SECOND time I have typed this. It disappeared the first time.



    When I put my camera in the charger nothing happens and the camera won't turn on or work. I don't know whether to replace the charger or the battery. How do I find out?

Make sure that the battery is propperly inserted. The battery port isnt keyed to only accept the battery the right way around so its easy to inadvertently insert the battery so that there is no terminal contact. The result would be what you decribe. Simply turn the battery over and insert as indicated by the picture inside the port.

My Fujifilm Finespix S4200 won't turn on


Your camera will work with AA batteries.
Always be sure the batteries are charged.
Insert the batteries correct plus to plus and minus to minus. Only one battery the wrong way around and the camera won't work. Check contacts of the batteries and in the battery compartment of your camera. Dirty or oxidised contacts can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools to clean contacts or anything in or on your camera.
Always charge the batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Also check if the battery door is closed correct. Most cameras do have a switch connected to the battery door. If the switch does not work correct, it could be you can't switch on your camera.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In most cases, alkaline batteries have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They can't deliver enough power and can start leaking, causing damage to your camera.

If nothing helps, perhaps you should try a new set of batteries and or another charger.

To rule out the camera is defect, put in new alkaline batteries. If the camera starts up normal, you can remove them end concentrate on the batteries and charger.

CAMERA WILL NOT SWITCH ON. THE POWER BUTTON SEEMS STUCK AT BOTTOM, WITH OR WITHOUT CHARGE


The Canon G9 has a design defect, two screws fall out inside the camera and short out the fuse. If you've never had it fixed for no power before this is most likely what has happened to your camera.

Do a Google search for "canon g9 no power repair" and you will see a full repair service including return shipping of your camera for just $85.

Camera doesn't seem to accept a charge Camera


Yes. You need a new battery. I would assume the same. Have the battery checked or try charging it in the battery charging cradle overnight.

Power switch


Make sure you are using a fully charged Nikon battery. Problems may sometimes happen with generic batteries. If you are using a Nikon batt, then seems you may need to bring this in for servicing

Lens error and camera battery not charging.


SORRY TO SAY, BUT I AM READING HORROR STORIES ABOUT THIS MODEL OF CAMERA AND IT'S CHARGING OR LACK OF CHARGING SYSTEM. IT SEEMS IT IS A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THE M853 AND ABOUT THE ONLY SOLUTION PEOPLE ARE FINDING IS USING A SEPARATE CHARGING BAY. IT SEEMS THAT VISTA HAS A POWER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM ON USB PORTS THAT TURNS OFF THE POWER ON UN-USED USB PORTS AND THAT IS WHY THEY ARE NOT CHARGING. YOU NEED TO GO INTO THE USB PORT SETTINGS AND RIGHT CLICK THEM AND DISABLE THE SETTING THAT ALLOWS THEM TO SHUT DOWN POWER TO THE USB PORTS. IT ALSO SEEMS THAT THERE IS A LOT OF TROUBLE WITH THE MAIN BATTERIES IN THE M853 FROM THE VERY FIRST TIME YOU TRY TO CHARGE THEM. THEY SEEM TO NOT WANT TO TAKE A CHARGE. I KNOW ALL THIS IS BAD NEWS BUT GO TO GOOGLE AND PUT KODAK EASYSHARE M853, NOT CHARGING AND READING THE STORIES FOR YOURSELVES. THEY ARE NOT PRETTY. BEST ADVICE I CAN OFFER IT SEEMS IS SEPARATE CHARGING STATION AND DEDICATED USB PORT YOU KNOW IS HOT. GOOD LUCK ON THIS ONE. IF THE CAMERA IS FAIRLY NEW, I WOULD CONSIDER RETURNING IT! THIS ONE HAS A REALLY BAD TRACK RECORD. IF I CAN HELP MORE, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217
