Has it frozen up from a previous use? or won't start up from a completed shut down? If the lens has retracted at the last shut down, it could be the PCB board. Panasonic has been having problems with them, and they are worth 2/3 what the original camera costs + labour!. Call Panasonic directly on it, but have your receipt ready!

How to Save my Laptop Battery?


Charge battery fully (with laptop off) then unplug AC power. Do not continuously have power plugged in. This will ruin your battery. Remove battery when not in use for long periods. To refresh battery charge fully then run laptop till it turns off. Turn on again and wait for it to turn off. When laptop wont turn on, charge battery fully again and repeat process about 3 times. This should extend an old battery's run time.

My sl102 samsung wont turn on


Are you sure the battery is correctly charged?
Most USB connectors on most PC's don't deliver enough power to charge the battery. Try to charge the battery with the power cord till the green LED is on.
If you'r sure the battery is fully charged and the same happens again, remove the battery for a small time and put it in again.

I need help with a ps3 polaroid wired controller it wont connect


Hi,
How do you connect it, wired or wireless? Check these settings out.
Make sure the Power Save Settings are turned off: XMB > Settings > Power Save Settings > Controller Auto-Off > Off

If the Power Save Settings were on, then that was your problem. The controller only charges for 5 minutes and then turns off. That is not long enough for the controller to charge. Turning the Power Save Setting off will allow the controller to charge correctly.

If the Power Save Setting is not on, then do a Reset (http://faqsmedia.ign.com/faqs/image/arti... ) on the controller, then connect with the USB cable and press the PS button. If this doesn't work, then I would say the controller is going dead, and you are in need of a new one (make sure to actually press the Reset button, sometimes it can be missed if you are using something too small, like a needle).

Lumix DMC-FZ18 wont power on


Leaving it in the on mode has totally depleted the battery, you say repeated charges fail. Usually leaving it on charge for overnight should revitalise it, if this is not so then the battery should be replaced as attempting to recharge it may cause it to split and spill nasty stuff onto things.

Dont take the risk with batteries in expensive cameras they are cheaper to replace than the camera itself. I remove the batteries from my camera at the end of any session and store them in a tupperware container in my camera gear. That way if they develop a problem it wont affect the camera. It also saves them from running down when the camera switch is left on.

Panasonic lumix dmc fz18 won't zoom in or out after being dropped from a table. the camera can still take photos but not zoom on playback or while taking photos


The innards of modern DSLRs are precise and fragile. You need to contact a reputable repair shop ASAP. In addition to fixing your camera, they will clean the interior properly, eliminating dust particles that find their way to the CCD. The cleaning is something you should have done from time to time anyway, so just bite the bullet and take it in!

Dell inspiron 1501


Hi there
Take the battery out and start the laptop up on AC power only, set the correct date, time and time zone, shut down the PC and remove the power jack, wait about 30 seconds then power it up on AC only again, If the date and time has changed the the cmos battery has run out and needs replacing. If it keeps date and time the problem is the battery or the powerboard controller that charges the battery is defective. If the battery is getting a charge, run the battery completely out of charge, then try to charge it again.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

FZ18 Service/Repair Manual


Question is the problem just that though the power button is switched to "On" the power is off and it doesn't want to come back on terribly quickly? It may be that your power save mode is set to quickly (The camera can be set to go into powersaving mode after as little as 30 seconds of inactivity) if this is the case you will be VERY frustrated because the camera will feel like it's going on and off without any say from you (which it is--but it's not broken!!!)

The feature is a good one--because I can't tell you how many times I've left this camera dangling around my neck or put it in the bag while eating lunch and left it in the "on" position which would have zapped my battery-this way | don't run out as quickly!
I have my power save set at 5 mins of inactivity which works for me--you may wish to have longer or shorter depending upon your needs.
Please read the manual on adjusting the power save feature.

Remember that making adjustments to all of the menus available is not possible in the IA (Intelligent Auto) mode or in the Preview Mode on your dial. Dial to any other mode and THEN follow the mamual's directions regarding adjusting menu staus.

I hope this helps... Note if you "Google" DMC-FZ18 manual you will find a link to the Pdf for the manual eventually (it's in the top 10-20 links or so from panasonic--and is on their website for free download).

Battery/charging issue


This generally indicates that the battery is worn out and needs replaced. I would also bet that the battery light is flashing orange. This is afterall, just a battery, and batteries eventually wear out. Replace the battery and everything should be fine.
