The power on error is due to failure of the main control system. It will be good to have it checked at the service as you do not have to run around for spares.
You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your palms so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck, causing the lens and shutter mechanism to reset .
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
get estimate before you decide.

I have a casio digital camera qv-r52 3x optical zoom when I turn power button on it will not stay on the lens retracts but I can view the pic's on the dish


Katie, Joe alerted me to your problem. The symptoms that you're experiencing suggest that you're experiencing a lens error. Lens errors are fairly common, but there are many causes. Some causes include poor or drained batteries. Or sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:

Kodak EasyShare Z740 Turns Off Fix

Does your Kodak EasyShare Z740 Turns On Then Turns Off right away?
Does your Kodak EasyShare Z740 Turns Itself Off with new AA batteries in it?

Many of these Kodak EasyShare Z740 cameras that shuts off right away and will not stay on, will actually stay on if you select FAVORITES to view pictures, but just flash back and turn off if set to auto or camera mode. Try this.

If the lens cannot extend, the camera will turn itself off. You can try giving the camera a thump with the heel of your hand, but I would recommend servicing the camera rather than smashing a delicate digital instrument. After trying the steps below, a last chance alternative that works for some people is to grab and actually PULL the lens out as it tries to extend itself. Again, its delicate; if you can afford it, maybe pay for servicing before hitting and pulling on your camera.

However, before servicing your Kodak Z740 try this fix:

  1. Hold down the Time/Ascending Folder button (the button under OK on the circular panel)
  2. While holding that down, press and hold the ON/OFF button.
  3. The camera may turn itself on and stay on this time, acting normally again.

If this doesn't work for your try this:

  1. Hold down the '>' button (the one that brings you to picture review)
  2. While holding that down, press and hold the ON/OFF button.
  3. The camera may turn itself on and stay on this time, acting normally again.
If that doesn' t work, try again with the 'Trashcan' button, and ON/OFF button.

I hope that helps.

IS THIS WITH BOTH AC CORD AND BATTERY
you probably need a power supply
before you run out and buy one start and press f8 then start in safemode see if the same thing happens
also make sure your AC adapter is connecting with internal connection the internal connection can become loose or bent from constant plugging and unplugging

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't power on. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

1. Mode Dial not working, "Take-Picture-Button" not working.


If the camera was dropped, then it's really causing those kinds of issues like mode dial and shutter button will not work.

But you could still try these steps below:

First, do the POWER RESET:
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera

Second, do the MASTER RESET
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see RESET
- Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved - Turn off camera for a few seconds so that settings will be refreshed

Third, if it still does the same thing, then your camera needs to be repaired by a technician.

If you want to know where you could send it, just call the hotline of the manufacturer of your product so you could get assistance
about this matter.

Camera Won't Turn On


I have bought many "broken" Casio cameras that had this issue. 9 out of 10 were easily fixed.
The first thing you do is remove the battery and card. Let the camera sit empty overnight. Next morning, take the camera and puch down on the power button...the on and off button. Hold it for 15 seconds. Release it after that 15 seconds. This will reset the camera. Then try the battery and card again. Many times...that is all it takes.
If that doesn't do it...but a new battery (NP 20) they sell on Ebay...no more than $7 as rule with shipping. Buy a new charger as well...no more than $8 usually..same place. Do not throw away your camera or take it in for repairs until you at least try this. It could be the cheapest fix possible.
If a new and charged battery still doesn't work, it may be the connection points...inside the camera...the little springs you see when you look into the battery slot. I have never had to adjust these as they were never the problem. What is sometimes the problem, id when the battery is pushed into place...the right way and not backwards (we have ALL done it!) there is a little latch that comes out from the side to hold the battery in...make sure it does in fact hold the battery in tight before shutting the battery cover. The battery cover does not have to be closed for the battery to work.
If all the above fails...sell me the camera and charger and battery...seriously!!
