If you can not power up with charger, your charger may be bad. If you can power up with charger, your camcorder battery terminal may be bad.

PowershotA2400is len cannot retract


Are you sure the battery still has enough power (even after charging) to let the lens motor do its job?
Are you sure there is no mechanical problem, you can see on the outside? Did anyone stop the lens, while it was coming out? Did anyone drop the camera, while the lens was out?
There cam be a lot of reasons, why a lens won't retract. Could be some force was used, also could be something just went wrong inside the camera. Like a gear that broke inside, or the motor stopped working. A contact failed and perhaps lots of other things.
If you already took out the battery, and reinserted it, and nothing changed, The only thing you than can do is after getting the battery out, is recharge the battery and then put it in.
If you have a spare battery, or you know anyone who has the same battery, try that battery. If nothing indicates a mechanical failure, and nothing helps, just contact the Canon Service Centre closest to you. First ask what a possible repair will cost. hen decide if you would like it repaired or you want a new camera.
New camera's are much better and cheaper than cameras last year.

Hello Sir / Madam, I've got a Samsung Camera L730, 7.2 mega pixel, the problem is while charging, 1st it showed red LED light ( as usual ), then immediately an orange light starts blinking (as per...


Do you have change a Samsung L730 battery and to see if it can be charged? If you charge the battery in camera. It seems something wrong with the build-in charger core. If the camera all are OK beside charge battery, you can charge your Samsung L730 battery with a battery charger, and if your Li-ion battery is over discharged for a long time, it's bad for it. As your camera has been used for 2 years and it maybe not in warranty. To change build-in charger core should be expensive.

NIMH Battery goes off after 20 shots for Nikon Coolpix L01


the camera takes just about any AA pair of batteries ... lithium will give you the most pictures .. your NiMH batteries should last longer unless they are old .. you may have one weak battery ... you can try a pair of standard alkalines to see if there is something wrong with the camera .. if those work ok then you need a new set of NiMH ... there is a new type out called "eneloop" .. they are just like normal NiMH except they dont go dead when you store them .. even after a year they are still charged .. with normal NiMH batteries as they age they will self discharge in 2 weeks or so .. so you have to charge them just before you use them ..otherwise they go dead on their own .. if you charge them then not use them for a week then you will not get nearly as many pictures ... the eneloop batteries fix that .. you can also recharge them many more times than standard NiMH batteries .. they cost about the same ..
