Sounds like its time to replace the battery to me, the only other way to find out for free is to borrow a battery from a willing friendly soul and trying that out first.

Powers on then shuts off


No such thing as a reset button you can use after you dropped the camera. But the first reaction should be, check where the damage is. If you have any damage on the lens (barrel) you should solve that. If the lens can't move the camera will shut down to prevent any damage to the moving parts of the camera.
Then remove the battery. leave it out for a few moments and then reinsert the battery. Switch it on again.
If it continues to switch off, i'm afraid it really is damaged a lot.
Think what to do, let is repair or buy a new camera. First check what they will charge you for repairs.

My a730 camera is displaying a lens error message, how do i fix this


How long have you owned the camera? Is the lens stuck in the outward or inward position and does it move in and/or out at all when trying to turn it on/off. There are methods to try to fix it yourself. Like looking straight onto the lens and looking that is aligned the same all the way around. and if its not pushing it back into alignment. If the camera is under a year old I would have it serviced under warranty. Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thanks,
Lee

Hi, My son bought an Olympus sp565uz camera 3 weeks ago and is trying to use it on hol in Kenya. Unfortunately it shows 'zoom error' when switched on and won't work, is there anything he can do to get it...


I removed the battery and let the camera cool off, put the battery back and then check if it works. If not then proceed with the below steps:

Try pushing the lens downward, and apply a gentle force pushing and pulling the loens while the camera is still turned on. Then turn it off and on again and again. Making sure that the lens moves outward and inward. At first it won't move. apply a gentle force. and your problem will be fixed.

What does E18 mean?


Canon E18 error happens when the lens gets stuck while trying to extend. The camera will beep a few times and the LCD will display a little E18 in the lower-left corner. The lens gets stuck in the extended position, and refuses to move either to focus the lens or to retract when powered off. This is caused by dirt in between the telescoping portions of the lens. You can clean this with compressed air, generally. Blow air all around the turret sections of the lens. you can also GENTLY push the lens inward ( have the lens extended and take the battery out... then push inward...)

Screen comes on, disk turns, loading starts, and doesnt stop


With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you.

Not powering off


lights flashing like that usually means something is wrong in the shut-down procedure. my guess (and is quite common ) is that the lens doesnt retrack all the way hitting a clitched gear spline or something, maybe just weak motor,....as your retry it it settles in proper and tells the micro its ok now to shut down. good luck
