Won't turn on!!!!

I used the camera for hours last night, haven't had a problem with it yet. This morning, it will not turn on. I've tried with the memory card out, in, recharged the battery, etc... Help, help, help!

    i was taking pictures with my camera and turned it off. i tried turning it back on and it wouldnt turn on. this happened once before; i took it to best buy geek squad and luckily my warranty was still good. it worked well, but just today it did the EXACT same thing. my warranty has expired now, and it looks like ive got a piece of junk on my hands.

    I have had the same issue. I took it to a repair shop today (Portatronics in NYC). The technician said that it was a faulty motherboard. I'm paying $90 for the replacement motherboard and $30 for the labor.

    I bought this camera about a year ago, never dropped it, barely even scratched the thing. I was heading out to an event of my daughters.. it took one picture and turned off.. has not turned back on since. I have tried a different battery, removing memory card, NOTHING!!

These models are notorious for defective mother boards. First check the tiny switch inside the battery compartment for physical damage. If the plastic piece does not pivot freely or is partially broken you can pop this black plastic piece out of the switch with a pin or needle very easily. The camera will power on ok without it. I have quite of number of these models with defective mother boards and Canon service will not give me any help whatsoever. If enough people complained perhaps they would issue a recall notice.

Phone battery going down very quickly


Try this:
Many post suggest using "advanced task killer" but none of them really gave the perfect settings for it, well i finally found them out myself

The settings i use : Auto Kill Level ==> Aggressive
Auto kill Frequency => When screen off
Security Level ==> Low

Additional tweaks are: 2G only
disabling WIFI and Bluethooth
disable GPS and positioning

Cant get the power to turn on,worked fine last night, it got unplugged, this morning plugged in, won't turn on and the power button just flashse


Flashing is either an error code or the set trying to boot up--some of the Mitsubishi sets if power removed will blink for a minute and then stop--then the set can be turned on.

a model number?

I returned from vacation last night and noticed all four of my coach lights were off. I thought...the timer needs to be reprogrammed due to a power outage while I was away. The red indicator light was...


1) You performed correct troubleshoot steps down the line.
Last thing would be to install defect timer on another light circuit in house, and see if problem is the timer or wire going to coach lights.

2) EJ351C has 1 year limited warranty.
Buy new EJ351c and install single pole light switch until timer replacement is available.
Timer has easy 2-wire installation. Turn off power. Connect new timer just like old one was connected. Either timer black wire connects to either wire in switch box.

Hi! I have a Nikon Coolpix. I haven't used it in a while. I charged it over night but it won't turn on.


Your batery is dead they don't like long period of staying discharging (If you 100% shure that your Nikon is working) The time of charge dosen't matter.
