The most likely problem is slight corrosion on the battery contacts. This would also be the easiest (and least expensive) to fix. Use a flashlight and very closely examine the battery contacts. You don't need much corrosion to prevent a good contact. Scrape any corrosion with a sharp edge. The corrosion is like rust and will not just wipe off. You need to expose the fresh metal for contact. Wipe with rubbing alcohol to remove loose corrosion. Replace the batteries. Begin capturing memories!

My Kodak V1233, isn't working right. If I turn it on, it will only turn on a second and extend the lense and then shuts off (it's fully charged). I can eventually get to take pictures, if I start by...


Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery
Remove the battery
Clean the metal contacts on the battery using a clean cloth

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.

My camers keeps on asking me to "press the reset switch" and reseting does not seems to fix any problem for me.


I found the fix. It's so easy.
Take out the battery
When it says hit the reset button, hit the reset button.
Turn the camera to off
Take out the battery
Wait 2 minutes
Put the battery back in.
Turn on the camera. It won't say reset anymore.

It won't turn on! I charge it, and the camera is no more than a year old, and yet it wont turn on. However, when it's on it's base, it can connect to my computer and turn on fine! Is it the battery?! Why...


Mine won't turn on...unless I hit the red button, then the menu button, then repeat...the red, then the menu. When the menu comes up, it wants to reset the date/time etc. I just ignore that and hit the menu button once more and it's ready to shoot. Pain in the you know what.
No more Casio cameras.

Powershot A540 flash does not work


Hi. I had the same problem. I called Canon and they told me to reset the camera, and it worked. The camera is back to normal. To reset, hit the "menu" button and then scroll over to the tab with the tools icon. Scroll down until you see "Reset All". Hit "set" then highlight OK and hit "set" again. It will say "busy" if it was reset correctly. I had to do it twice for it to work, but it seems to be working fine now. Hope that helps.

Will not turn on


I had this same problem with my camera a few years back and took it into a camera store to get it fixed. It turned out that it was just the batteries I was using. You cant use regular AA batteries for this camera because they give too much power. If you just go to a walmart or target or anywhere like that, you can get AA camera batteries and that SHOULD solve the problem. let me know if that works.

Camera turns on then immediately shuts off


I have the same problem - 4 fast beeps and it turns off. My guess is that the lubricants are getting old and sticky - I had a Canon SLR that developed the same problem after being in the extreme cold. Here's a couple of things to try:
  • You can still access the picture review features by holding down the review button while you turn it on (note that if you hold down the trash button you'll see the firmware version.)
  • What doesn't work: Resetting the camera from the setting menu; replacing the battery, replacing the SD card, cursing. 
  • I've been able to consistently get it to function normally by hitting the camera into the palm of my hand on the left side (with the viewing screen facing you), just after turning on the camera.  If this doesn't work, keep hitting harder until it works.  Once on, the camera works normally.

Samsung S500 beeps and turns off when i hit shutter


Hi,
If the Olympus is using the exact same batteries as the Canon, there is a high chance that the problem is with the batteries.
