Base from the description of your problem this is a clear sign of a bad battery, that;s why the camera wont power On since the battery wont charge, so if you have a replacement battery there that should correct the problem on this camera. You can by the way get a replacement battery from any electronic store near you.

Most Camera stores employ offsite techs to deal with most cameras

This is a 5 year old camera and may cost more to repair than its worth

Mustek is located in Irvine california

    Forgot to mention, that most of your problems may be that either the battery has collapsed after 5 years or so and needs to be replaced, or the charge mechanism is at fault.

    cheers

    Of course there are much better cameras than the Mustek, It depends on what your requirements are and how much you want to spend.
    Here is an updated revview of one of the current models
    http://www.steves-digicams.com/camera-re...

    As for service manual on the S50 I doubtthat you can even pick one up now. 5 years is a long time in the digital camera world. The technology has moved on and the SD card capacity and pixel rates have improved well beyond the old 3.1 Mp.

    Battery power has also changed with the newer models, greater capacity and running times from a single charge.

    I think it is time to move on and not waste money on a camera that is so old and unlikely to be repaired at a reasonablwe cost

Try first this ..for to see if the adapter/charger is to blame ..or the camera has a issue or it is the charger plug ...
This camera has the possibility to be charged from a computer in the usb mode...so ..connect the camera to the computer with the data cable ...than after you closed all the autoplay and whatever might start on computer ..click on the icon in the tray system ..and select remove ...but leave the camera in ...and on ...and look if it charging...anyway in the usb mode it is charging and may be a way to use it ..and if it does..it means that the charger is burned or the plug do not makes contact well..and either clean or change the plug ..after you measure the charger and see its working ...This way you eliminate them on eby one ...if it charges with the usb cable and powers on ..measn it is ok ..but a issue is with the charger ..and if this seasm to be ok when measured or tried with aanoter device ..than the only thing that remains is teh charger plug ..and you will have to change it ..
But , if with the usb cable r ..leaved on ....and off at the time about an hour or two ...and still not powers on ..it is probably another thing much worse ..the board or ..the battery ..and you have to analyze if it 's worth repairing ..

I cant get my camera to turn on. thanks for your


Fist charger your SONY Cyber-shot DSC-W120 battery and clean the connect place of the battery and camera. Please make sure that the battery has been charged by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W120 charger. Li-ion batteries life is about 2-3 years, and if you have stored your battery with no power for a long time, the battery maybe has been damaged. When store Li-ion batteries you should charged it at about 40% first.

Camera doesnt turn on


The Li Ion battery is going bad, or is not charged fully. When the voltage goes down below a certain level, the camera will not operate at all.

And, using other batteries other than Li Ion won't work, either.

I put a new battery in my camera charged it. Used the camera till the battery ran down. Now it won't charge . This is the second battery I've bought every time I try to charge it won't charge.


It takes over 7 hours to charge, so did you leave it charge overnight?

But while the original battery is chargable, disposable replacements are not. Here is what the manual says:

{ ...
The supplied battery is a Li-ion battery. It charges while in the camera using the supplied charger. The camera can also use a Duracell CP1 disposable Li battery, which has the same form factor as the supplied Li-ion cell. HP claim the Li-ion cell will provide power for approximately 200 shots under "average" use and 100 shots with "extensive use of the LCD and flash".
Charge time for the battery using the supplied charger and in-camera charging is 5-7 hrs for a fully depleted battery. In the optional docking station, charging takes 2.5-3.5 hrs and using the optional rapid charger, charging takes 1-2 hrs. ... }

Today I turned on my camera to take a picture and while it was turning on it made a weird noise, zoomed in and out, and then turned off. Why does it do this?


Are you using Li-ion batteries as recommended by Kodak?
Also, are they charged up sufficiently?

Many people try to use Alkaline or even NiMH batteries without success in Kodak digital cameras.

I would suggest using charged up Li-ion batteries.

Mustek GSmart S50 Digital Camera replacement batter. i can find a D50 battery for replacement but I am not sure that would be the correct one? Can you tell me what is the correct battery for this camera....


Hello David,
This camera has a built in Lithium-Polymer battery. In general these batteries are custom made for the camera, so replacing it with other battery types is not a very good ideea. My advice is to go to a dealer and purchase an original battery for your camera. Unfortunately the web does not give the battery type for this camera, you really need to ask a dealer.
