My wife just returned from Arizona and now my old 707 won't power up. My daughter was taking pictures of the white tigers at the Wildlife World Zoo when it just died. Checked the battery and its okay. When I plug it in to recharge the light comes on, but if I try to turn in on the light goes off again. Any ideas? Will it be worth fixing (still have my F828)?

Re: F707 won't power up
Hi Rick, have you fixed your 707 by now or disposed? As I'm facing the power problem with my F707 i came across your message. Mine, I have the problem with ON & OFF switch I guess. I removed the battery and did a reset it turns on..

Use the middle eyedropper tool and click on something in your photo that should be gray/dark gray.
Use the white eyedropper (far right eye dropper) and click on something in the photo that you know is (or should be) white. You can try the gray first, then the white.
Without looking at the back of my 707, I would say your best bet would be a watch repairer. Your local jeweler does not repair watches but sends them out: find out where they send them. Usually located in some jewelry center.
That's odd. I had the 707 (may she rest in God's eternal peace), and never thought that dust could get behind the lens.
Do you see the dust when you look through the EVF, or when you look at the lens itself? Either way, one way to test it is to set the camera to the smallest aperture (f/8), infinity focus, and shoot a clear blue sky. Open the picture in your editor program, and see if the dust shows up.
That's a technique to use with an SLR to see if the dust inside would affect a picture, so I'm not sure if this will work with the 707.
May I suggest you to do or have done following actions:
Use a philipps size 0 screwdriver and open your camera body.
Then look at all the flat cables, try and disconnect them thoroughly, rub them a little bit and reconnect them. Maybe if you have another digicam, it's a good idea to take pics of how the flat cables are connected and stacked, for easy re-assembly.
All your problems sound like bad contacts. Maybe dust or corrosion...
I bet your 707 can find a new youth!
