Wont turn on

I have had my camera for about a year no. I have had no problems with it until now. It has been sittin gon my dresser for a week, and when i went to use it it wont work. My camera will turn on the screen comes on but the shutter wont open. then the light turns from green to red and it all goes black and turns off. I put new batteries in it and it still continues to do this.

    Quite similar. I haven't used my camera for a couple weeks now. It was sitting on my dresser. The batteries were dead so today i went to switch them. At first it would turn on, then the light would go red and shut off. Now, it doesn't even turn on. Instead, the red light flashes and nothing happens. I also hear a very faint "click". :(

    I do not use my camera often , when i got ready to use it i could not get it to come on. I assumed it was the batteries needing to be recharged, i put on the dock and let stay overnight and the camera still is dead ! The charge light on dock indicates a full charge, but the camera will not work at all!! please help!! the camera is only 2 years old and hardly been used!!!! Thanks in advance>>>>>>

    Yeah, funny how mine does exactly the same & it's 13 months old (just out of warranty). It's like the batteries are shot, even with new ones. I've tried throwing it round the room, but it just bounces and chips. This is NOT a suitable cure to the fault, but it did make me feel a little better...

    I have the same problem. I read where someone smacked it on the counter then it began to work. So I smacked mine on my desk- and it began to work. I have had to smack it several times now and the smacking seems to work only sometimes. I think Kodak should fix them. Or maybe Kodak needs smacked.

Sprayed yard two weeks ago and appears chickweed is spreading. No sign that the Ortho Weed b Gon for chickweed is working . The chickweed is actually blooming with tiny white flowers. I live in VA.

I am sorry that the Ortho Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover & Oxalis Killer did not control the common chickweed as expected.

The active ingredient in Ortho Chickweed Clover and Oxalis Killer is Triclopyr, Triclopyr is very efficient at killing tough to control weeds, but it does take a lot longer for it to show results that it is working.

Weeds treated with Ortho Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover & Oxalis Killer will show visible signs that the product is working under optimal conditions ( usually 65-85 degrees F) within 1 to 2 weeks. A repeat application may be necessary in 2 to 3 weeks for hard-to-control weeds. Initial signs that the product is working are wilting and yellowing of tender new growth. Necrosis (tissue death) then spreads to the rest of the plant. The weeds wither, turn brown and die.Sometimes it appears that weeds are still growing and going to seed even after they have been treated with Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover & Oxalis Killer. These seeds will be sterile because the active ingredient will have reached them within 1-2 days of treatment.

If you give it another week and still see no yellowing, twisting or curling, you may want to reapply. If that still doesnt work, or you have any further questions give us a call at 1-800-225-2883 to see what else we can do.

Try getting new trusted brand batteries like duracell, And also if it forces you to change the D/T just change it. Also try getting a new memory card. (trusted brand). If none of this works then there might be a prob. Maybe someone dropped it. Try asking the company 2.

Hope this helps

Car wont start

I can only say that for the old cars even sitting for a year is not healthy, because most parts of engine, starting system, charging system will get corroded/deposited. Most probably you will need to change battery, motor oil, fuel, spark plugs, check the starter and alternator. Also check the fuel pump, fuel filter. First shot would be battery, fuel, spark plugs and starter.
Good Luck

C139 issue

Your phone is much like a car. You check the battery, and the cables and since this is more like an electric car, the charger should be checked as well. If it doesn't power on at all, it is safe to assume that power isn't getting to the phone. However, you said parts of the phone are powering on but not the screen. So, the battery wouldn't be the problem. It is possible that the fall caused the LCD's cable to come lose from the rest of the board (a common problem in cell phones) You can try and put it back in yourself or if you had the phone less then a year, you can send it into the manufactures and let them take a look. Sorry this answer is late but hopefully it helps in the future.
