    have you noticed the amount of pictures you are able to take going down more and more over time?



    or is this new batteries that you have placed in the camera?

Had the same problem. Open battery/memory card compartment and identify the protruding piece on the inside of the door which when the door is closed appears to make contact with a switch. I solved my problem by using a very soft pointed object and very very gently pushing down on the switch. Replace the battery & memory card and switch the camera on as normal. It worked for me which would suggest that maybe sometimes the switch can become stuck or the protruding part on the door does not make proper contact. Hope this works for you.

My fujifilm xp60 will not turn on, the battery is okay. the battery is inserted properly.What other cause could there be ?


Make sure battery is actually charged and charger is not faulty. Try a different battery? Make sure contacts on battery and camera are clean. If the camera still will not start, it may need to be serviced.

Battery wont charge


As in the first part of the manual is explained, when you have inserted the battery correct and you then plug in the charger, the charger light should go on. When the light is out, the battery is charged. When the light blinks, your battery is fault.
When the light does not go on, when you plug it in a power outlet, the battery is not inserted correct, or the contacts are dirty.
If you want to clean the contacts, please only use a dry cloth. Never us a sharp tool. It would damage the contacts bend repair.
Even when you plug in the charger, with a fully loaded battery, the light should go on for only a few moments.
Make sure the power outlet works normally. and the power cable is not defect.

I just got my Nikon D3100 and it wont turn on..why?? i didnt buy a memory card yet..doest it need memory card to turn on??


The battery ships in an uncharged state. Slip the battery into the charger until the it indicates it is fully charged. Install into the camera. The camera should power up without an SD/SDHC/SDXC type memory card installed - and should flash [-E-] in the viewfinder alerting you to the fact that no memory card is inserted.

Fujifilm battery fully charged but camera says no charge or very little. Just bought a new Duracell Battery and Charger for my Fuji FinePix J10 Camera. Used the charge on the battery in the camera from...


Well you mentioned that it worked fine yesterday with the battery out of the box. That should tell you that the camera and the battery are both fine. The issue is likely the charger itself. Try recharging it again, and double check that you inserted the batteries correctly, and that any switches (such as for 2 or 4 battery charge) are set in the correct position on the charger. If this doesn't work, take the charger back to the store for exchange/refund as defective.

Camera never used and won't turn on, battery fully charged.Ideas? Thanks, Deb


The fe-280 user manual notes hat it is possible to insert the battery "the wrong way round" in either the charger, or camera itself (whereupon its hard to extract).

An extract from the faq about it .....

The camera no longer powers on. What could be wrong?
The battery may be dead or underpowered.
If the battery is completely drained, the camera will not power on when the Power button is pressed. If the battery is nearly drained, the camera may briefly display a Battery Empty error message and then power off, or it may power on and then quickly power off without displaying the error. In either case, charge the battery using the LI-40C battery charger bundled with the camera.
Be sure to properly align the arrow on the bundled battery with the arrow on the bundled battery charger. It is possible to force the battery into the charger so that the arrows are not aligned. This is an improper orientation, and the battery will not be charged. For instructions on how to properly inset the battery into the charger, please see "How do I charge the lithium-ion battery?"

So in a nutshell, the first few steps to check are:
1) Are you sure the battery is charged correctly?
2) Have you inserted it into the camera body correctly?
3) Do you have a spare charged battery to check the camera with? (A photo store will do this for you sometimes, if you ask nicely).

Battery charger says charged. camera will not turn on


Hi there i can 't get your these word." camera charger is blue, used battery and new,". Please let me know the battery is new or or its old? If its old then the battery life is finished. Thats why he can't store the power.

Cannon camera will not turn on


Dear Trish,

There are a couple of things that will usually cause this. A few are simple to check.:

1. Make sure that you battery is inserted properly and that your battery door is closed completely.

2. Make sure that your CF card is inserted properly and that your card slot cover door is completely closed.

3. Make sure that your battery is charged (charge it for 90 minutes) and that your charger works properly during the process. Your charger's light should go from red to solid green during a full charge. If possible test a fully charged battery on another camera. If you don't have access to another camera take your battery down to a local store that sells Rebels and ask to try it on one.

4. If these aren't the cause then you likely have an electrical issue with your camera and you should call Canon's tech support at 1-800-828-4040 to do a little troubleshooting and possibly send the unit in for service.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB
