Re: Camera will not stay charged ican take a few pictures...

Hard to say without more information, however, what first comes to mind is battery age. Rechargeable (assuming this is what you have) have a finite life (anywhere from months to 1+ years). The battery may no longer be holding much of a charge, also, the charger may no longer be functioning properly.

P100 was working took 1 picture and froze open. white screen won't charge

Perhaps you have an empty battery?
Just remove the battery and try charging it on an external charger. When it is charged, try again. The camera should start with retracting the lens. Perhaps you again should power down and remove the battery for a few seconds after that, but just try it.
Switching of a camera causes it to start again, like a cold boot from a computer.
Monitor your battery, because if the camera shuts down very soon after that, perhaps you need a new battery?

The camera keeps turning on and off by itself

When your camera shuts off by itself, it has detected an error inside. Could be hardware failure, but also a software problem. So no use of switching it on again. Please when it shuts down again, wait till no memory access light is burning or flashing. Then remove the battery. The best thing before reinserting the battery is to charge it first. But if you are sure the battery is fully charged, wait a few moment before you reinsert the battery. Then when you have put in the battery switch on the camera.
When you remove the battery for a few moments, the camera will have a "cold" start. So the program that makes your camera work, start from scratch. As long as the battery is in the camera, the program in the memory does not change. That is why you should the battery.
If your camera has a hardware failure it won't be solved when you remove and reinsert the battery. If the switching on and of occurs while zooming, it could be the lens mechanism has a problem with the gear or motor. If this happens, you should visit a service centre, or buy a new camera.
Then it could be the battery is charged, but not powerful enough to do all tasks. If the camera detects the voltage is under a certain level, the camera also shuts down. If every time the flash has to charge, or the zoom or AF motor needs to work, the camera shuts down, it could be the battery is on its end of life. But for that you should look on the display. Most cameras do have a battery level indicator.

My camera stops working but the battery showed full.

Those are the symptoms of a battery that has been charged many times or has been allowed to completely discharge once or twice. Try some new ones.

Camara shuts off as soon as it turns on. Lens

I believed that you are using the battery came from the box the KLIC-7004 which is very good. Now since the battery indicates its charge, first thing you need to do is to removed the battery and Memory card, Now wipe the 3 metal contacts of your battery then reinsert only the battery in your camera then Turn It On. If the camera shuts off try to used 5V AC adaptor to Turn On the camera, If this failed to turn On using the AC adaptor It means the camera needs of service call Kodak Tech support toll free 1 800 421 6699 ext 12

Nikon coolpix 2100 camera won't stay on

I've been having problems with the batteries and the camera refusing to start even with fresh batteries. I bought loads of new rechargable batteries and have finally found some that work. Duracell rechargables. Theyr'e brilliant and keep their charge for ages despite continuous use of the camera! Last summer I managed to take 975 photos before the batteries finally decided to give up!

My camera will not stay on

Hi Sarah,
I had the same problem. What I did was to remove then reinsert the battery and turn the camcorder on. I let the battery run down (discharge) completely, then plugged it in to the charger overnight. Doing a little more research on this camcorder, I found that if it hasn't discharged completely when you recharge then the battery holds less charge each time until finally you get next to no battery use. Discharging completely may be an option. Hope it works!

Stylus 300 won't stay on??

In the cameras I own, there is a setting where you can adjust the time the camera stays on. It's usually in the set-up screen. Is that setting miss-set?
