SOURCE: The camera will not power up with new batteries installed.

This happened to me too. I did some research and if you were using anything other than alkaline or NIMH batteries (I was using Nicd rechargables) it will fry the circuit board. That's Sony's way of making sure you use their rechargable batteries only (or buying costly alkaline). Our cameras are fried. Time for a new one.

SOURCE: Computer turns off by itself

I had the same problem. I installed a CPU temperature monitor and realised my CPU was overheating and that is why it kept on switching off. I opened up my ACER 5720Z and cleaned the vents which were (very) clogged up, even though my laptop is only 6 months old

Most cheap cameras have a limited software capability. This means that power to flash and memory are always active. This in turn drains standard batteries very quickly.

To increase battery time turn off the monitor and flash when not in use. In addition remove batteries when camera is turned off. This will slow down the draining.

For best results purchase rechargable AAA batteries. Best are Ni MH (Around 1000 mAH). this will allow you to take around 2-3 times more shots than standard batteries.

Thanks for posting your question on fixya! ;)
First, unplug the device from the computer. Next, uninstall the software from the computer you are using it with, and download fresh software from HP Support, HERE.

  1. Press the Power button ( ) to turn on the product.
  2. With the product turned on , disconnect the power cord from the rear of the product.
  3. Press and hold the power button with it unplugged for a full 15 seconds to completely drain the power.
  4. Release the power button and plug the power cord back into the rear of the product.
  5. If the product does not turn on by itself, press the Power button to turn it on.

    (A)If the unit comes on and the scanner light remains off, try to re-install it by running the software you downloaded, and plug in the printer ONLY when told to do so, by the software.

    (B) If after trying this a couple of times, the unit does not behave as expected, it may be that it has gone bad and needs replacement.

I have dell inspiron 1100 laptop, when i turn it on fan goes on for about 15 sec,with no screen, power lights and battery lights either, i can hear sound from HDD and DVD rom, but after 25 sec everything...

Could be loose battery pack.
A bad memory chip would do this as well. Sounds like your not getting power.

Try this,

Unplug it, remove battery, wait couple minutes, press and hold the power button for 5 full long seconds, wait couple minutes more, then put battery back in securely, then plug in, turn back on.

Lights come on but no fans or powerup


Please follow the steps below.

1. Please removed the battery and unplugged the power supply.
2. Held down the power button for 45 seconds.
3. After 45 seconds reinstalled the battery and the power supply and pushed the power button and if it works then you don't need to replace your motherboard.
4. Else try it couple of times or up to five times before it worked if worst comes to worst.
