    I tried the suggestion, but it still behaves the same. the lcd lights up, asks me to set the clock, and then says " turn the camera off and then turn it on again."

try this out it worked for most of them who had a similar problem like urs:

Gently tap it twice at the end of the camera to ur palm and it will work again.
just tap it very lightly against the bottom of the camera holding it upright.

If this doesn't work then try giving it two three hard banging with your hands or just try tapping the camera on the table once.

Be carefull don't bang it that hard it may damage the cam.
And if the steps which i told you don't work then you will have to get it repaired.

Please don't forget to rate the solution.

When I plug my camera into the USB and connect to my computer I have been getting a message that the scanner or camera is in use so it can't download my pictures. I have also seen a message asking me...

Here is the basic solution I usually give as a FIRST attempt to fix similar problems.

1. Make sure one end of the camera cord is plugged into your computer and restart your computer.
2. Make sure your camera is turned OFF. Once computer is restarted, then plug second end into the camera.
3. Turn the camera on. Wait and see what happens with the computer. If you still receive the message. Try steps 1 and 2 again. Step 3 would be to open the software that you usually use to download FIRST before turning the camera on.

If this does not fix the problem. You may need to reinstall the software you use for the camera...and try again.

Hope this helps!

I have a new fuji finepix z70 camera i have followed instructions but no photos come up on laptop

Have you tried transfer to computer using a card reader ? If not transferring directly from camera it is more than likely the Fuji drivers are not correctly installed remove drivers and reinstall (check for correct drivers PC or Mac) Have you tried on another laptop? I would say it is more than likely a software problem. If still not working send details of you computer operating system and camera model number please.

Turn the power off and on again

It could be a software problem. You should seek professional help for updating or reinstalling the software of the camera.

Alternatively you could try to re-install it yourself, but there is a high risk of damaging the camera and loose the warranty

Power problem

Per the symptoms that you describe, it seems that one of the two internal printed board circuit parts have a defective component that is draining out the battery current.

If you have only 11 months with it, I strongly recommend you to contact Canon and make valid the factory warranty.

The reason of it is that will require professional repair service for it, and it will be expensive if you wait and the camera is out of warranty.

Good luck and best regards,

Have exactly the same prob, my camera worked for 3 years without any probs, except that the alkaline batteries didn't have a long life...tried rechargeable batteries as well, but since three weeks ago it simply says, "batteries depleted", nothing works, tried everything...sending it to Pentax after the warranty is over is far more expensive than buying a new cam...really sorry for that, but don't think I gonna buy a new Pentax again...

Thanks for posting this article as I had no idea of the cause and was suspecting a firmware/software fault. I had the same problem a few days ago. As my camera was out of warranty and the advice from a salesperson in a well known chain of camera shops was to buy a new camera as the repairs would be as expensive, I decided to try and fix it myself. My, somewhat brutal, solution was to use a very thin needle to get around the side of the button and lever it back up again. I did this around the circumference so the button was level again. Since then it has been OK.

Konica-Minolta Dimage Z2 can't turn on

Well, I also bought the DiMAGE Z2, and my problem was similar: It worked for some time, but then it started freezing sometimes, not responding to any button I pressed. One time, it froze, shut off, and I wasn't able to power it up again. In short, the camera was still under its warranty, so I gave it to their lab and they fixed the problem.
