Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

My digital camera is Samsung Galaxy, Model no is EK-GC100 and it won't turn on.


When the camera is becoming warm while charging the battery, the battery must be charged. So no need to check for dirty contacts. If you have a multimeter perhaps you can measure the voltage on the battery. While just measuring the voltage, the battery must give a little more then printed on the battery. So when on the battery is printed 3,7 V toy should measure 3.8 or 3.9.
Anything less means the battery is not good.

Now the causes of not switching on. Sometimes the on / off switch is defect. Sometimes the (mini) USB connector is defect and telling the camera, there is still a plug in the camera. It won't switch on. Sometimes the display button must be pushed several times, so the display shows something. And sometimes, the camera is defect.
Carefull investigate the connector and on / off switch, but be aware cameras sometimes become defect, without telling you what is wrong.
I wish you luck.

The display now shows a picture of a battery indicating the amount of charge,instead of the minutes of charge left,eg.(99)


This is quite normal. There is no need to worry about that. Plug in the charger again and the display will change to numeric value.

Also you can charge your shaver anytime as it uses Li-ion batteries so the batteries will not damage easily.

Hope this helps..

Battery will not charge compaq presario v5000


I would try replacing your ac/adaptor (power plug) before troubleshooting any further. It sounds as if the adaptor is faulty. Check eBay, you can get a replacement for less than 10 dollars.

Canon sd900 will only take pictures that don't require a flash


Press the "DISP" button. Button on the top right of the bigger circle control button.

You can turn off the display if you want to conserve battery and use the viewfinder. So you probably accidentally turned it off. You can use that button to turn on/off the LCD display or change between two brightness settings on the LCD.

Hope that fixes your problem.

No display at all. But able to take pictures with Canon A75


Sounds like you might have accidentally turned the display off. Turn on the camera and press the DISP button once on the back of your camera.

Phone wont turn on!


i have noticed that the mini plug for the charger and usb connection on RAZR V3 is sometimes sloppy. when the phone is charging it will definitely say battery charging on the external display and also flash the battery icon. i also noticed that the plug for the wall outlet is touchy.
make sure the plug is secure in the wall outlet
make sure the mini plug is secure in the phone
gently wiggle these connections if you have to till you get the battery charging message
if there are any connection problems there will be a unable to charge message instead.
