    My camera wont turn on or work even after i put brand new batteries in it... whats wrong with it???


    If your batteries did not leak at all, and corrode th points where the. Batteries make contact, then it could be something very serious on the main board, or something simple like the on/off switch. Really it's the sort of problem that needs to be seen by someone. I'd check the battery connections first, then make absolutely sure the batteries are going in the right way around. Flat end is - and pointed tip end is +. Good luck

    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

    My fuji finepix s5000 has lost power


    see this causes and proceed . God bless you
    If the camera won't turn on, check the batteries, or connect the camera to an AC adapter. If that doesn't work, remove all batteries, disconnect the AC adapter, wait a minute, reinsert batteries and reconnect the adapter.
    If the flash doesn't work, the camera won't take pictures, or the screen keeps turning off, check that the batteries are strong.

    If this camera takes ordinary batteries you may have inserted them the wrong way around.
    If it takes a rechargeable pack recharge it for average time recommended and try again.

    My Cybershot DSC-S650 has recently won't stay on. I have changed the batteries to different types. The only way it comes on is if its in viewer mode to view the pictures that I have taken. I have even...


    My HDC-570AB Hitachi digital camera drains AAA batteries as soon as I switch it on so that batteries are running low within 2 minutes of taking pictures. It renders the camera useless unless I take out an endless supply of AAA batteries! Is there a solution to this?

    My camera wont turn on.


    This problem occurs when your camera has weak batteries or the wall outlet is not working. Try to change your batteries or just try another wall outlet for adapter/charger. Also, make sure that the battery is inserted properly.

    You could also follow these steps:

    Check batteries -> Connect camera to an AC adapter -> Remove all batteries -> Disconnect AC adapter -> Wait 2-3 minutes -> Reinsert batteries -> Reconnect adapter -> Turn on your camera.

    I hope it works! Give it a try. If it won't work, contact the firm that produces your model of camera.

    How do you get the camera to charge? I put in new batteries and it still says battery low and shuts off. I have plugged it into the computer and it still won't charge. It won't even turn on.


    Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.

    Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.

    If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or

    Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.

    I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

    Batteries


    This may sound silly, but you did put KNOWN good new batteries in? I have had several problems with my 4345 and they are all battery related. My theory is that when the camera is first turned on there is a lot of juice drawn from the batteries (electronics, lens cover). Unless you use really topgrade batteries (=expensive) they just can't supply the peak current. The bargain 8 for a quid packs are very variable - some are fine, others give up the ghost within minutes :-(

    About the only good news is that "old" batteries, discarded from the camera, go on to provide good service in radios, clocks, CD players etc.!
