    Same problem-- beeps, the Cybershot logo apears, and it turns off. When you hold on the arrow button and press the on button it will let you see the photos. when you hit the play arrow again it turns off.

    I would like to know if any of you have tried using my last solution and if you actually took note of the mAh value? Electrical Dealers do not have to supply batteries with the goods sold but in cases like cameras and other personal devices they do. They don't supply rechargeable batteries because they cost alot more, and they know you are going to need to purchase them in the near future with a charger!. A digital camera with multi functions such as a Picture viewer,Video,Sound recorder & flash uses alot of power. Normal batteries dont have the power to run a LCD screen and take multiple pictures like a high charged battery. Most dealers will,if you ask them tell you that a Generic digital camera requires an mAh of atleast 1800. I had the same problems as you have described and took the camera back to the retailer to which i was told i just need to purchase rechargeable batteries.Which of corse he promtly showed me a selection of batteries and chargers! I put them in there and then and hey presto it worked perfectly.

First make sure the filters and vents are clean and the filter cover(s) are properly installed.

Try once more (DO NOT RESET). As soon as the TV shuts down, press the ACTIVITY/ENTER button and the CH Down button on the TV (not the remote control) and hold them for 5 seconds. The Status LED will start blinking an error code. The "normal" code is 12, which would be one blink, pause, then two blinks and a pause. The code is repeated five times. Post your results in the comments; I can look up the code for you.

How to reboot samsung r601 laptop

Hi there,

Rebooting a Laptop is quite simple. Click on Start, go to the > arrow next to Shut Down, then click Restart. If this doesn't work, then try holding the power button down for three seconds or so. Turning it off by holding the power button will eventually start causing errors in your hard drive so don't turn it off like that regularly.

Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON...

I would start by looking into the memory card slot to see if you have a bent pin. You may need a small light and a magnifying glass to see them.
If the pins are okay, then you can try a reset by holding down the BKT and metering buttons together for 2 seconds. The metering button is on the left, behind the off/on/release.

Thirdly, you can try a firmware update on the camera which can be found here:

Sanyo TV I need a code for my optimum cable remote control to turn on and off the TV with their remote control.

Here's the instructions and codes plus an alternative method if one of the codes below do not work.

Three-Digit Code Programming Method:
  1. Turn on the TV.

  2. Press and hold the TV and DONE buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. The iO button will light.

  3. With the iO button lit, point the remote at the TV and enter the TV's three-digit code (see code table below). The TV will shut off when the correct code is entered.

  4. Verify by pressing the SEL button. This should turn the TV on and off.

  5. Press the TV button to store the three-digit code. The iO button will blink twice to confirm that the code is stored.
Codes: 007, 053, 057, 082, 020, 239

Auto Search Programming Method Use this method if the three-digit code method does not successfully program your remote control:
  1. Turn on the TV.

  2. Press the CBL and DONE buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. The iO button will light.

  3. Hold down CH+ and release it as soon as the TV powers off.

  4. Press CH- five times (the television may or may not turn on again as you do this). If the television does not power, turn it on manually before proceeding.

  5. Press CH+ one at a time until the television shuts off.

  6. Press TV to save the code.
To save time, the Auto-Scan function is trying codes as fast as possible while CH+ is being held down. It scans so fast that you may pass the desired code while holding down the CH+ button. Steps 4-5 allow you fine tune the auto-scan so you reach the correct code.

Mine did the same thing. Just let it sit for a couple of days. Don't mess with it. It'll eventually stop doing that and work. That's what i did. It worked for mine.
