I had same problem. Took it to photo store who sent it to Canon. They returned the camera stating liquid damage, would cost more to repair than to buy new one. I figured what the heck and sprayed WD 40 in the battery compartment. It turned on but wouldn't zoom. Sprayed it again and more worked. After the 3rd spraying it works like new and has for 9 months.

Kodak c340 won't turn on


Hello Carol, Are these batteries new and name brand ? It sure sounds like low battery power, Those cheap batteries found in some stores do not have the energy to boot a camera even when new out of the package. The camera has a very high demand to start up. I own several cameras that will not turn on with brand new cheap batteries.
Best Regards, Russell

Polaroid A500 digital camera pressed ON button, nothing happened with new AA batteries and SD card


Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

My camera won't turn on...it is brand new


Brand new as in you just opened it out of the box? If thats the case you have to charge the re-chargeable battery first, then put it in the camera and it should work fine. Try giving the battery a charge first if you haven't already.

Does there is something happened when you turn on the camera? If you can heard sound made by the len or the camera try to open but turn off in a second? If so, there is something wrong with the lens, and this how to fix camera lens error will be helpful. Else, if the camera are without any reaction you can check it the joint of the camera to battery is well.

Camera won't retrack


August - this sounds like the same problem I had with my Finepix510. Turns out the new unopened package of batteries I put in weren't fresh enough and weren't working. When I got truly fresh batteries, everything started working just fine again.

Hope that turns out to be true for you.
