Make sure that batteries are fresh and battery compartment is clean.

Not sure why this worked for me, but it did. Start the camera play mode (like your viewing pictures). Once the pic is up, press the silver photo shutter button (the one used for taking pics) down 1/2 way. My camera then extends and is fukky operational. Hope this work around helps!

The zoom's probably just a bit stuck (maybe there's a bit of dirt or dust in it). Pull gently on it to see if it unsticks. That worked for me.

The manual does not indicate what is wrong, when the green light is flashing, other than the flash is charging.
It could be the flash can't be charged, because the flash capacitor is defect, or the battery does not have enough power.
Try switching on the camera while not in automatic mode (M of so) or when in video mode. If the light on the main dial still flashes, I think you should look for another battery. But first try another battery, before you buy one. (Or test the camera with an external power supply. Don't forget to switch of the camera, every time you change the power supply.

Kodak easyshare M893 IS will not stay on. The battery has been charged and replaced, however, when the camera is turned on the green light comes on, the "Kodak EasyShare" screen appears for a second or...


Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery
Here are the steps:
1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera.
2. Clean the battery contacts.
a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth.
b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera
3. Without the memory card,turn on your camera.
4. Pls test with an alt. batt.
If you do not have access to a dif. battery.
Pls. take the batt out of the camera. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the batt. If not you will need to order a No power repair.

When i press the power on button the green light fashes


You should press the button for about three seconds. This is to ensure that you don't turn on the camera by accident (f. ex. in your bag or pocket)

Samsung L100 wont turn on


Samsung's have notorious problems with their lens-cap shutters malfunctioning. This seems to be the case with yours. It will have to be serviced, I'm afraid.

Battery level


As Suzaku explained:
A battery icon will show up on the LCD screen of your camera when it is already low and needs recharging. It can be found at the lower right side of your LCD screen. The ready light of your camera will also blink red and your camera will turn off if the battery is exhausted.
NOTE:
The icon will not appear if the batery is sufficient and there is no TECH way of making the icon show until the batt needs charging.
