    Does the unit run on external power and not on batteries or is it just dead?

I have done this before without a problem and the unit has powered up fine when the batteries have been correctly inserted. It's easily done with the not-very-sensible design of the contact arrangement.

My fujifilm JX500 wont charge


Had the same problem, took the camera back to the shop. Was mortified when the assistant opened the battery slot, took the battery out, turned it round and put it back in again. And it worked. Make sure the battery isn't the wrong way round (only camera I've ever had where it was even POSSIBLE to put the battery in the wrong way round). Orange label on the battery needs to be next to the orange 'release lever' on the slot.

Gateway mx6214 will not powerup -bought a new power cord and it still doesn't work. What could be the problem?


It is the plug in the laptop that is most likely the cause, plug the power supply in the laptop. Now put your thumb on the plug at the laptop, as you bend it sideways hit the power button repeatedly to see if it will power up, failing that take the main battery out of the laptop and use power supply only. Please take the main battery out first to see if your power supply will start the computer if the computer starts up change the battery.

It will not powerup evan with new battery. I was told it need a mainboard. do you know were i can fine one?


are using you suing teh recommended battery KODAK Li-Ion Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery (1050mAh, 1700mAh or higher)?

You may also try to powerup the camera using 5V AC adaptor., IF this failed it means theres a problem on the hardware of the camera

Unfortunately theres no available parts for the speciially if your looking for a motherboard. The best thing you need to do is to call kodak Toll free 1 800 235 6325., There will be the one will gonna setu your camera for service and repair

Fuji digital camera


I think I've solved the same problem on a Finepix A350. My shutter has been sticking for months now on powerup. I brushed all round the periphery of the shutter with a perfectly clean, small, camel hair brush and now it operates perfectly! So maybe the answer is to keep a new brush specially for this. Hope this works for you! I certainly would not try dropping the camera as someone suggested.

AC/Battery powerup


Well I think if you a tester test the battery if it is fine. It is not absolute sure that the battery is fine because it shows it is fine from the laptop.

If the battery is fine then there is something wrong at the connection of the battery with the motherboard.

Won't power up.


Check or replace the circular bios battery. Its a small round disc type about the size of a quarter.

Optio S Powerup Problem


Perhaps this is related to the focus problem you posted? Battery drain because the lens system hangs up on power-up? If this new lens system fail to open properly you can have battery and focus problems?
