Such a symptom may occur because alkaline batteries have a characteristic that reduces the capacity sharply during use. The DiMAGE 7 is designed to have a margin before it shuts itself down even if the battery is exhausted while saving the capture image data to a Compact Flash. The data will not be lost. Because it consumes more power than other Compact Flash cards for operation and data storage, users of IBM Microdrive must use Nickel Metal Hydride cells.

Automatically Close Programs at Shutdown

When you shut down Windows, if you have any programs running you'll get a message box warning you that a program is still running. You then have to close the program and tell XP again to shut down. It's a fairly pointless warning—better yet would be if XP automatically killed the programs without issuing the warning. That way, you wouldn't get error messages and wouldn't have to close each individual application before shutting down your computer.
To have XP automatically close programs at shutdown, run the Registry Editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop. Edit the AutoEndTasks key so that is has a value of 1. If the key doesn't exist, create it as a DWORD value and give it the value of 1. To disable it, either delete the key, or set the value to 0.

My camera tends to just shut down. I'm thinking it's overheating possibly? Removing battery does not reset. Very unpredictable and of course, it goes without saying, frustrating. Is there a way...

If the camera just shuts down without warning the problem most probably is the battery. Often times devices such as cameras lose contact with their points for the battery and at that point since there is no power to the system the system automatically shuts down. Check how well the battery sits inside the unit if it has room for shaking and probably loss of contact try getting something to support it so as to ensure proper contact. If. This does not work then component inside the units board is bad and the unit needs to be opened and examined.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

On attempted power-up, camera begins to start up, then gives off three beeps and shuts down.

Check your battery condition and see if its full charged. If you pass this step, check if the battery is seated correctly in its place. Try to power on the cam with a DC connection and see if its doing the same symptom. If after this step you encounter the same problem, get your card out and try to start it without memory card, If again the problem persists, try to check it at a professional repair shop for a possible defective board.

Why does my computer keep shutting down?

Is Windows crashing or is it just shutting down without warning? If it is without warning, then I would suspect a failing power supply. May want to look at getting a replacement power supply.

Explorer shuts down without warning when uploading

Now would be a great time to switch from Internet Explorer to FireFox wutxtye0rjd9d9ekmodqt1eoxkvn9hr9qjz1l3dabggyud7sdgr36czsrfxqenadhnijx9nfayi+sz1sug0aaaaasuvork5cyii=

We are in the middle of a production (Live, right now) and one of our XL1's is shutting down whenever we hit the record button.

It may be timing out. Is the camera in standby mode? If yes, put it in record and lock.
I have an XL1 and a GL1 that sometimes shuts down. Is there a tape in the camera? It will time out sometimes if there is no tape rolling. Even if I am capturing directly to a computer, I always roll a tape, just to keep the camera from timing out.
What does your battery guage read in the viewfinder? A low battery will shut you down without warning. Try running from the power adapter if you have one.


Canon A75 stuck between ON & OFF after uploading photos

My Canon A75 has the EXACT same problem. I have always handled it with care. When I was taking photos with it, the camera suddenly started shutting down without a low battery warning. It just started shutting down, but it stopped with the lens still sticking half way out. Like yours, the top green light flashes when I try pressing the power button. Any ideas?
