Question about Praktica SlimPix Digital Camera

Camera won't switch on

I thought the batteries had worn out because when I press the 'on' button the 'busy' light comes on for a few seconds and then goes out and nothing happens. Have changed batteries and checked installed correctly.
Any ideas please?

Camera wont turn off


As long as the memory access light is flashing, you should not try to switch off a camera.
If no light is burning, you can remove the battery (batteries) and wait a few seconds, before reinserting the battery.
If your power button is causing he trouble, perhaps you can't switch it on anymore.
But sometimes it is just a software problem, and will be gone after this trick.
If the error keeps coming back, or you can't switch the camera on again, contact your camera shop, of a certified polaroid service centre.
(Or buy a new camera?)

Hello, I purchased a finepix s5700 about 18 months ago. It has worked perfectly until the last few weeks. I can turn the camera on if I hold the playback button and switch on the power, and can scroll...


Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time for new batteries, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Doesnt switch on


card readers are the preferred way if your camera uses any kind of media card. try that and let me kmow what happens. if your lcd screen was on, it draws a lot of battery current and could have dropped below what it needed to operate. let me know if that helps and we can go from there!
