I've got the same exact problem and I have no idea what's wrong with it. I'm taking it to Best Buy today to try and figure out why I can't turn it on.

New unlocked cell phone won't turn on


Hey, same problem. Push and hold the hangup button. It will prompt to insert sim , but I only have one. The phone works. The website and the manual are useless. Just gotta play with it, I guess.

No power - fully charged battery


How about cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then, with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Turns on then off. I have bought a new battery. Still didn't work. Charged it for hours. Still nothing. Only 4 months old.


Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery
Here are the steps:
1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera.
2. Clean the battery contacts.
a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth.
b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera
3. Without the memory card,turn on your camera.
4. Pls test with an alt. batt.
If you do not have access to a dif. battery.
Pls. take the batt out of the camera. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the batt. If not you will need to order a No power repair w.4 months and no cust damage it is covered under the warranty.

Scooba won't turn on


It sounds like you've got a finicky power button. Not a lot that can be done about that, but you may want to try getting your hands on the old-style Roomba remote, the black one. The power button from that will power on a Scooba, though you can't start a cleaning cycle that way. This might allow you to bypass the Scooba's power button altogether.

I have a Olympus C8080 digital camera that won't start up? It has a brand new battery, which I purchased because the old battery was over 4 years old, and because it took a charge in about 5 minutes, but...


Are you using a genuine Olympus BLM-1 or a cheap "compatible" battery. It's possible that the original fault was caused by a worn out battery, but if you've bought a cheap compatible from places like eBay or Amazon then they're often very poor quality and frequently not of the stated charge capacity. Sometimes they're not even lithium batteries so your charger and camera won't work properly with them They're often so cheap that there is no effective quality control so your new battery may well be a faulty one. There is no way that the new battery would have been fully charged after just eight minutes: although they're usually supplied with a partial charge it's nowhere near a full charge.

Another possibility is that your Olympus BCM-2 charger is faulty.

Worst of all, you may simply have been sold a pup. If the eBay seller described the camera as being in good working order then I suggest you ask for a refund and return the camera. Although private sales are "as seen" they also have to meet the sellers description. If the seller won't play ball then you may be able to claim PayPal buyer protection if you used it to pay the seller.

Your camera is a five year old model now and way outside the warranty, in the UK perfectly good used examples sell for around £125 and this is likely to be less than the likely cost of any repairs if you send it to Olympus. You'll need to carefully weigh up what you've paid so far, what you're likely to have to additionally buy just to diagnose the fault correctly and what you can get if you just cut your losses and sell the camera as is.

Camera won't power up


You might try cleaning the battery compartment of the camera to make sure that the contacts are not corroded.

No lcd display on GE Intellicorder


For a blank LCD screen, the troubleshooting section of the manual says you need 3 new or fully charged alkaline batteries AND you need to firmly connect all cables.

What you have described certainly sounds like a power issue. Any chance the batteries are installed backward? Have you tried 3 brand new alkaline batteries?

This is from the manual page 17 found here:
