    My DSC-W50 Sony Cyber-shot camera will NOT power on. I've checked the batteries and they are charged. It was working one day and nothing the next. No power at all. What to do?

    When I zoomed in to take a picture, the zoom button was acting up. It told me to turn off the camera and then turn it back on. When I turned it on, the camera kept on zooming in and out. What should I Do?

    My Sony DSC-W50 Lens is stuck in the open position, and repeatedly displays "Turn the Power on and off again". Upon turning the camera off the lens does not return and close, and when turning it on the LCD displays " Access ", then repeats the same message to turn it off. Whatever help can be provided is greatly appreciated!

When the camera stops like that, it is hard to tell what is wrong. It can be an internal problem which has to do with the electronics or connections. A repair or selling it as a as is or parts camera on a site like Ebay.

Lenses being stuck, may be helped by pulling on the lens or pushing in... if it is tilted slightly to one side, you may be able to fix it by pushing gently as it is started to the opposite side.

Zooming problems are definitely to do with the lens. Dirt or sand in the gears, or at some time it could have been damaged from an impact.

A digital camera not powering on can be the result of many internal problems. Loose connections internally, corrosion form liquid or water can damage the internal electronics.

All of these problems may not be able to be fixed for less than the camera is worth. Selling it at a site such as Ebay for.. as is, parts, or repair, may be better than tossing it.

Nikon s9300 - When I turn it on, the lense fully extends, but the screen stays black. I have to pop the battery out, then put back in for the lense to retract. Battery is fully charged and even tried

When the battery is fully charged, please put it in again. That means, if it is still in, remove it once again.
Switch it on, and even if you don't see a thing try to make a picture.
Then press the display button several times, to see if anything comes on the screen again.
If the camera does not respond after that, you should go back to the dealer, of contact Nikon.

My car won't turn on it was working fine last

Just because you charged the battery it doesn't mean it is any good. Modern sealed batteries fail; just as you described, fine one moment and then nothing, they go open internally.

Battery keeps dying

Most likely the charging circuitry has failed. When you fully charge the new battery what does the battery meter read on the camera? Your two options no matter what the case are repair vs. replacement. If you need further assistance let me know.
