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

Canon FS-10 camcorder battery


The battery may not be getting power, it is unlikely that many consumer available batteries exhibit behaviors like experiencing damage from complete depletion, try and charge it on another charger like a universal one, borrow a battery and see if you cam and charger charges it, lets make sure its the battery first, and if that is the issue find out why--Good Luck.

Light is on where the electrical cord is plugged in but cannot turn computer on


Hard to say exactly what is wrong with the limited information you provided but...

It's fairly common for laptops to get stuck is "Sleep Mode" and exhibit this behavior.

If that's the problem, you can try the following...

Unplug the power adapter from the computer, remove the battery from the computer, then press the startup button for a few seconds. Without putting the battery back in, connect the power adapter and try starting the computer again. If this works, shutdown the computer, put the battery back in, and you should be back in operation.

Good Luck!

HP Elitebook 2530 Pindicator says battery charging but battery not charging


Could be a back power brick or DC jack yes. Power off the computer and remove the battery. With the battery out plug in just the power brick and turn on the computer. If the computer doesn't power on gently wiggle the plug into the laptop and repeatedly hit the power button if it comes on briefly then off again you dc jack is loose. If it doesn't come on at all then its the power brick. If the laptop comes on gently wiggle the plug into the PC. Powers off while wiggling DC jack.

Just double check the memory is attached properly and generally check all equipments by removing and replacing it properly in their slots. If any one of is slightly loose then this type of behavior is often noticed.......sodeep
