    Samsung L730 still digital camera

    camera will not turn on..not even plugged into wall outlet. we are using rechargable batteries and are probably not charged....does this camera require the battery to be charged or will it turn on if plugged into an outlet?

    Have you replaced the batteries?

I had the same problem. I connected it to the pc.

Then I took the battery + memory card out, and left it for quarter of an hour.

Put them both back in and it worked :D

It's worth a try anyway.

Always explain if you are using new batteries or recharged and if they are charged.
If that does not start the is internal, and could be the start button or some other problem....and that can lead to a lot of things internally.

I have the word Access come up on the screen and i can't take photo's i can access all other funtions on the camera. Is there a trick? OR A BUTTON TO PRESS HELP!

hi johnjones931,
the problem that you have is a common issue with SONY digital camera which has a retractable lens. The error is brought about by the inability of the lens to retract or protrude fully. You may try these steps ...
1. turn off the camera then remove the battery. Once battery is out you may press on the power button for 1 minute. This process is called power cycle, this way we are eliminating static electricity that may be causing the issue. After doing the steps mentioned put the battery back and then try to operate the camera. if it doesnt work try next step.
2. Have the camera on viewing mode (since you will only be getting the word ACCESS on the shooting mode). them press Menu button and look for the (SETUP) icon the looks like a toolbox . once the toolbox icon (SETUP) is highlighted press the middle control button to select it. Then go to SETUP1 (icon: toolbox with number 1) then select Initialize. This will reset all the stored settings on your camera.

When i turn on the camara it says to turn off and turn on

initialize the settings of the system.
press the menu button then look for the toolbox icon with a number one at the bottom then select initialize. click ok and confirm selection.this process doesnt delete your pictures.

if menu is not accessible you can also try to remove battery then press and hold power button for a min then reinsert battery and try to turn it on again.

I have a sony cibershot camera for over a year now, it has always worked nicely, up until a month ago, it suddenly wont turn on anymore. I,ve already charged and re-charged the battery but nothing...

make sure the batt is charging and working fine.check also the batt contacts.make sure its clean.insert batt to your camera.instead of pressing the power button, press the play button instead to power camera on. if unit turns on,might actually be an issue w/the camera unable to power on in camera mode.if it turns on initialize cam (p.75 of the manual).see if it works.if still wont turn on try using a diff batt (or if you have an optional ac adapter model#acls5k use it, attempt to power on cam to isolate issue w/power source).if batt or ac adaptor not available try to check batt with another cam if possible to test batt. if still unit doesnt turn on using a fully charged, diff batt, or using an ac adaptor,unit would reuire service. hope this info helps.thanks:)

My cannon power shot sd600 viewer doesnt turn on

Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. Try pressing this button one more time to see if it turns back on.

Not powering on

The manual indicates that the green light flashing once indicates that the camera is powering down. (see page 218 lamp indications)

The first thing you can try is to turn off the camera, remove the battery, remove the memory card. Hold for one minute , pop the battery in(but not the memory card) turn on the camera by pressing the power on buttn and holding it for 15 seconds. This will not only reset the camera but also force the motor to retrace/extend the lens if it is a lens related issue that is causing the camera to shut down.

Let me know if you need more help
