CAMERA NOT WORKING

I just baught my camera 6 months ago and it is not working. It's doing pretty much what some other people cameras are doing. The LCD light comes on for a second but the screen doesnt come on and the lens doesnt pop out. Then it shuts off and beeps three times. Is this a manufacturing problems? Is there any other solution besides paying the shipping and handling to send it in? By the way i have'nt dropped it or store it in extreme temps or anything like that. Its stored in a camera bag in my apartment. I also take the batteries out when im not using it. Please help, i really love this camera and want it to work!

    Thanks for the response to my question. I have NI-MH 2500 rechargable batteries in the camera but it still wont turn on to get to the menu options. They're generic batteries from walmart so im gonna try some new ones. Do you have any other solutions if this one does'nt work?

Cameras belonging to the S Series really do have a battery type option that needs to be set up first for proper power connection.

Recommended batteries are just:
- Alkaline (Non-rechargeable)
- Nickel-metal Hydride (Rechargeable)

Just the proper battery type by:

- Pressing MENU/OK button
- Scroll to the right until you are in SETUP 2
- Keep on scrolling down and look for battery type
- Press the right button to pick up on 2 options
like Alkaline and Ni-MH
- Press MENU/OK for changes to be saved
- Keep pressing MENU/OK to get out of the MENU

Once, it's done, camera needs to be turned off for a few seconds
so that settings made will be refreshed with the camera.

As you turn camera on, you're now ready to take many pictures.

ALKALINE (Non-rechargeable) batteries when set to the correct battery type will really take a maximum of 100 pictures.

For the Rechargeable batteriesCAMERA NOT WORKING - 1.gif (Ni-MH), when those are fully charged, and the battery type is set to Ni-MH, it will be taking more than a hundred of course.

I hope this help you a lot.

Remove the battery. Connect the camcorder to the computer's USB port. The computer will show the autostart menu or give a beep. Insert the battery now. Use the 'Safely Remove Hardware' option, stop the device and remove the Camcorder from the Computer. Close the battery compartment. Bingo! The device works :-)

Same problem


Have you tried to use another batteri. Many lithium ion batteries are flawed and stop working.
It might be a solution so you dont have to throw it out..

Hope it works out for you

My camera quit working


Hey jell91bean,
Without knowing what make and model your camera is I would suggest you try cleaning the battery contacts with an eraser. If this doesn't work I would suggest you have it looked at by an authorized service technician to possibly have it repaired. If you purchased this camera 6 months ago it is most likely covered by a manufacturers warranty and any repair on it should be free of charge. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they should be able to send it out for service. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

For vista you need other drivers. It's even possible your camera isn't compatible with vista. What camera brand and model do you have?

Hoizontal lines in images


The problem is faulty CCD sensor ( this device converts light into image ) so faulty sensor means either poor quality pics or no pics at all. Have sensor replaced and camera will work fine.
