Camera will not turn on

The camera will not turn on or show any signs of life even when there are new batteries in it. Will not turn on at all. Dropped accidently, does not rattle and will light up when on charger. Can it be fixed.

    Same problem, except i did not drop it. Will only turn on when on charger cradle. Able to see previous pictures already taken.

    My camera will not turn on, but did not drop it. Camera is in perfect condition, and was just used a couple months ago. Now it will not turn on. Bought new battery and charged it, but camera still will not turn on.

    Hope someone might have a solution!

    Mine hasn't really been working right for years. I left it on my computer desk, and my 5 year old cousin got into it. She took it out of the charger, then tried to stick the ISB cord where the charger outlit goes it. Since then my camera only takes pictures if I have it connected to the computer. If I take it out, and turn it on without the usb cord connected to it, then it only shows my pictures, and wont let me do anything else. And it also runs out of batteries after 6-8 pictures. Today though, I wanted to take some pictures and of course the battery ran out really fast. So I connected it to the charger, and waited for a few minutes. Now it wont turn on...I've taken the battery out, and un-plugged it, but it's still the same. The light is on though, where it says Charge, but it's not really charging my camera. =/ I need major helppp.

    Mine is having the exact same problem. It worked fine then while I was taking pictures just suddenly stopped and will not turn on. Only can turn on when in the charger to view previously taken pics, but will not function in camera mode at all, and will not turn on when not in the charger. Very disappointing, as I loved the design of this camera!

I have the same problem- got this response from Sony (within 33 minutes of sending my email!)

Thank you for contacting Sony Support.
I am sorry that your Konica Minolta Camera does not turn on with the battery. I suggest that you try with different battery and check the operation. If the issue still persists, turn if off, remove and reinsert the battery, or unplug and reconnect the AC adaptor.
If the issue persists after following all the steps service will be required. You can find repair information and initiate service at:
TIP: Be sure to change the "Product Company"

Thank you for being a valued Sony Customer.

Camera wont turn on even after switching batteries.

Have you checked both batteries for voltage. Connect to the USB and leave it for a while, see if the Flip shows any sign of life. If it does both batteries may be flat or there is a bad connection to the battery in the flip. If no sign of life on USB then I'm afraid it is faulty and you will have to dismantle it to investigate unless it is still under warranty.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

Could be either. If on switch on again the indicator is full and you get more work done then its a camera fault. If when you switch on again the battery remains flat then this could be the camera fault too the flash capacitor showing signs of distress. On the other hansd the battery could be nearing the end it useful life. How much is a new battery?

Try taking the batteries out of the camera for a few minutes, and see if that helps to "reboot" the camera.

Camera will not turn on

This could be any of hundreds of different faults so I'll give you the ones you can check yourself. One or more of your batteries are faulty. The battery contacts are dirty. The batteries are inserted wrongly. You have a problem with the lens mechanism. Shake camera and listen for anything rattling around. If metal it could short anything out. Check your troubleshooting chart in your user's manual. Google for "Panasonic Lumix LZ2 problems" Is the power switch feeling as if it's actually switching. Has the camera been dropped or given swimming lessons. Check all your switches to make sure nothing is disabled. Apart from these it's impossible to say what's wrong. A trip to a repair shop may be in order.
