will releas the battery and it pops up.

I just received this dv002 camera and can't get the battery compartment open. I'm afraid if I force it open, it will break.


You do not need to open up the battery compartment, as it is a built-in rechargeable battery. Use the cable included to recharge the camera.

My digicam won't start


There could be a couple of reasons why your camera would not start.

Before considering it to be defective, verify that the camera has batteries inside and that these batteries are charged. To do this:

  1. Locate and open the battery compartment.
  2. Identify the type of batteries needed and purchase new ones OR
  3. Recharge the batteries with the recharger provided.
  4. Place the new/charged batteries inside, closing the battery compartment.
  5. Try to turn on the camera.
If the camera still doesn't work after verifying that the batteries are in order, remove the memory card and any other accessories that the camera may have and try turning it on again.

If still the camera won't turn on, one last step can be performed if and only if your camera uses standard batteries (AA or AAA). If this step is performed incorrectly, you could short circuit the batteries, which would discharge them. This procedure will not damage the camera if performed correctly. Please pay attention and do exactly as explained:
  1. Locate and open the battery compartment.
  2. Remove the batteries.
  3. Place the batteries back inside in the opposite direction than the one indicated. If the position indicated is for the positive end first, place the battery with the negative end first. Do this process for all the batteries.
  4. Close the battery compartment.
  5. Attempt to turn on the camera. It will not turn on, but this step is necessary nonetheless.
  6. Open the battery compartment.
  7. Remove the batteries.
  8. Place the batteries in the correct position according to the indication.
  9. Close the battery compartment.
  10. Attempt to turn on the camera.
If the camera still does not work, it is likely that it is defective. At this point you should take the camera to an authorized service center.

Can i plug my nikon coolpix s570 into my computer to charge battery


No. You must either remove the battery and charge it in the MH-63 charger or use a nikon coolpix s570. The best bet is to get a second spare battery so that you can recharge a spent battery.

Sony t90 got wet with a water splash during swimming now i cant take pics and there's "E:62:02" Constantly flashing.can u pls help me?


Open the battery compartment and remove the batterys and the memory card. Completly dry the camera as best you can without further damaging it. Let it set open up like this for about 5 to 7 days. Recharge the battery and reinsert the battery and memory card. If you have to reinsert the battery to recharge the battery, do so. If it still doesn't work, contact the factory for a repair estimate.

Change the batteries message even with new NIMH RShack batteries


The solution is to change the small 'date/time' battery. You can have the regular batteries as charged as you like, it won't make any difference. The tiny date/time battery is in the same compartment as the regular batteries, on the opposite side of the hinge. Extract it with a fingernail, it is situated on the left hand wall of the battery compartment (when the camera is inverted and the compartment open).
