    Camera will not turn on

  • Anonymous Feb 24, 2008

    My camera also comes on and shuts back off again. sometimes even when the door is open the power button does not turn it back on. I have to shut the door and reopen it. Even then it does'nt stay on very long. Just long enough to take a picture or maybe if im lucky two. I have even tryed new batteries. Also when i first got the camera i could take approximatley 160 or more pictures im not sure but now i find that it's only letting me take like 60 approximatley before it says my card is full. i dont know what to do.

    ive had it for approximatley 2 years

    I dropped my camera and the battery case opened and the batteries fell out. After reinserting them, I cannot get the camera to turn on, or if it does, it will turn off almost immediately. It seems like the batteries may not be making proper contact. Occasionally the camera will turn on for 3-5 minutes, and then go off again. Most of the time it will not even turn on. Help! I have put in recharged batteries--it hasn't helped. Is something bent on the panel that holds the batteries in place? Thank you --

    sliding the lens door open is suppose to turn on the camera. It will turn on but will intermittently turn off and on. It appears that the mechanism that registers to the camera that the door is open is wearing out. I've had the camera for about 2 years. I would recommend to all the own this camera to be really sensitive when opening and closing the sliding door so avoid wear and tear.

I tried the solutions that were posted, then checked the batteries and realized they were not the batteries I thought were in the camera. Replaced with different ones in and and came on...for now anyway. Thanks friends!

How to reset automatic sliding door on chevy venture van

The rear side door actuator control modules monitor the power sliding door positions at all times. Whenever the battery positive voltage supply to a rear side door actuator control module has been removed or the on-board diagnostics have been activated the power sliding door system(s) must be re-initialized. Re-initialize the right or left power sliding door systems using the following steps:
  1. Turn the ON/OFF switch for the power sliding door system to be re-initialized to the OFF position.
  2. Manually open the power sliding door completely.
  3. Manually close and latch the power sliding door.
  4. Turn the power sliding door ON/OFF switch to the ON position.
  5. Open the power sliding door completely using the B-pillar or overhead console OPEN/CLOSE switch.
  6. Close the power sliding door completely using the B-pillar or overhead console OPEN/CLOSE switch.

1999 Chevrolet Venture Power sliding door opens back up after closing. I have cleaned the contacts on the door post and on the door itself. There is nothing in the way, ie: weatherstripping or seat belts....

simple door latch, try unplugging the power and see if the door opens, if it does its not the motor. if the door is out of alignment it wont latch. if the latch in the door is broke it wont latch. try locking the door when its closed.

2006 Chevy Uplander. The power sliding doors won't shut

2 possible solutions. First clean the door pin contacts(multiple spring loaded pins on door side and matching plate on body) with a scotch pad until shiny gold color again. Second the rear edge of the door should be 1mm inside the body opening when closed. If those are correct it is going to take a software download from a dealer to the door control module to fix this. Otherwise you will have to pull the psd fuse and breaker from the right side dash fuse box.

Rear door won't stay shut

Check the latch mechanism on the door. There is a piece of the latch that closes around the clasp on the door frame. sometimes this closes when the door is open and you can't shut the door. Take a screw driver and flip this latch piece open and close the door.

most like your contacts on the door and jam are either worn or coroded. try using a soft old tooth brush and a lil dab of toothpste to clean the copper contacts. if the problem still exist the contacts or too worn and should be replaced
