Press power button for 10 seconds for camera to shut down. Remove battery. Pres power button. Put the battery back in. Press power button again.

When after powering on, please check if there are firmware updates and update camera, preferably by physically connecting it to a computer.

The Lense will not go back in


Remove the batteries from the Camera. Then press and hold the power button down for 45 to 60 seconds. Replace the batteries with new ones and install them in the camera. Then turn it on and wait until it finishes its normal warm up, then press the power button to turn it off. This should make the lense retract back to normal position. If the lens does not retract, contact the manufacturer for assistance with repair work.

When I push the power button the lense moves in and out several times then the camera just turns off. I tried charging the battery and holding the power button down for 10 sec. but still does the same...


The power button has two purposes explanable;
1. A firm press and hold would shut down the entire device, where would be common feature for the camera to perform a system check to include the lense functionalilty.

2. A gentle press and release of the same power button should capture a snap shot only after the camera has been powered on, by the similar process as pressing firmly the power button

Remember

Pressing firmly the power button would shut down camera completely after a system check if only the camera was on.

Pressing firmly the power button when the camera is off would turn on the device by performing a system check also.

Important note
The camera when powered on would have an indicator light of ready to capture snap shots.
The camera would autoshut down when left on for an extensive duration without capturing snaps.
The instance of such would generate a camera check once more before powering off completely


The lense adds to the cameras feature capabilities of acquiring images. a function of the lense is capture an impressive image where the mechanism of drawing closer to the object is made possible by a moveable lense. The Olympus FE-340 Digital camera is powered by a battery requiring sufficient energy for a snap shot. keep in mind that, the camera can perform without the lense. However, the device is designed to automatically responded whenever the lense is required.

Important note;
1 a solution to the camera is with the source of energy in which instance batter power.
2.Dislogde the entire power area consisting of battery, check for improper installation; reinstall the battery in appropaitely noticing the installation indications of power supply. Cover the battery compartment properly, and charger afterwords.

Caution
1.Charge the battery for the entire duration known of a full charge.
2.Unplug thereafter when the full charge indicator is visible.
3.Try on the device for improvement in situation by taking photo snap shots

Wont turn on, new batteries, green light just blinks.


Make sure you are using the correct batteries, and that they are installed correctly. Some cameras require more powerful kinds of batteries and will not work with the cheaper kinds.
A blinking light can mean something is wrong with the power, not enough or something else.
If you have a power adapter or can get one, you may try that, to see if the camera will work without batteries. If it does, then some problem exists in the battery circuit.

Hello I have a canon IXUS 960 IS. Yesterday when I was using the camera it only closed half way when powering the camera off. Now the camera doesn't open fully and when pusing the "play" button the power...


If the outside of the lense get dirty, those small particles may prevent the lense from opening and closing 100% as nomal times. I had the same problem with my Sony. Here is what I did.

1- I cleaned the outside(sides not the lense itself) of the lense.
2- While turning the camera off, I press on the lense (up and down motion) NOT too hard for a few times untill it either retracted all the way inn or most of the way in. If most of the way in, press the lense a little harder untill it retracts 100%. If you turn it back on, it should work as normal unless some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated. When it fully opens, clean up the outside of the lense and keep it always clean for normal operation.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!

Sony camera turning itself off...


You can't use regular alkaline batteries in this camera. Alkaline batteries only supply 1.5 volts. The camera uses 2 in series for a total of 3.0 volts from alkaline. However, the camera requires 4.2 volts to operate correctly. This camera has high power requirements, so you'll need high end lithium or nickel hydride batteries that can supply the higher voltage and current this camera requires. It's a power hog, and regular alkaline batteries are too weak to run it. The menus will work on alkaline, but once you try to turn the camera on in capture mode to take a shot, the current requirements to operate the camera motor, LCD, zoom, memory stick, etc, all it once is too great a draw for alkaline to handle. Either use the external power supply, or get Lithium batteries. Make sure the batteries you get are 2.4 volts and not 1.5 volts. Get the ones with the highest current rating you can find.
