It is not turning on maybe it was exposed to extreme temperature that is why it's acting up that way.

First thing to try is to do the POWER RESET:
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Return batteries
- Turn on camera

Make sure to use fresh batteries:

Alkaline batteries (Non-rechargeable) or
Nickel-metal Hydride [Ni-MH] (Rechargeable)

Once your camera turned on, kindly set the battery type option of it properly so there is proper connection between batteries and camera.

To set the battery type:
- Put batteries
- Turn on camera
- Press MENU button
- Scroll to the right until you see SETUP
- Keep on scrolling down until you are in BATTERY TYPE
- Press right button for you to see 2 options like Alkaline or Ni-MH
- Select the batteries you are currently using
- Press MENU/OK for changes to be saved
- Get out of those by keeping on pressing MENU
- Turn off camera for 10 seconds for settings to be refreshed
- Turn it on and take pictures

* If it still does not work, send the camera for repair.

Call the hotline of your camera's manufacturer so
they could provide with how you could safely send your camera.

My flash is not working (samsung s730) and I have heard alot people say I should reset my camera. How do I reset it?

First try and take the SD card out and turn the camera off then on again. If that doesn't fix the problem, then: Turn it on, the hold the menu button for 20 seconds.

Hope this helps!

My camera's screen is cracked and when i turned it on its white and theres a black line on the side the buttons are working, its just the screen that is broken can you help me b'cuz it's my fav'rit camera...

you have a couple of options:
1) if its still under a manufacture's warranty, contact fujifilm and see what your options are.
2) buy a replacement LCD screen and fix it yourself (this will void any active warranties)
3)buy a new camera (sucks but $80 can get you a nice camera at 8+ megapixel)

I want to set my Samsung s73 camera back to the factory settings.

You Can Change The Size Of The Picture By Clicking The +/- Button And There You Can Select The Size Used In The Memory For The Picture But You Cannot Change The MegaPixels Used Becase MegaPixels Just Mean The Quality Of The Picture

Power key doesn´t work

There must be a problem with your batteries. If you have recently charged your batteries and it happens again, you should try a new set of rechargeable batteries.

You can try conserving charging power usage on camera by turning the flash off so that it doesn't precharge for the next shot.

Samsung Digimax D53; 5.0 megapixels

Mind did the same thing. Try taking out the memory card. If it works after that, you'll have to buy a new memory card.
