Question about Sony Mavica MVC-FD75 Digital Camera

Sony MVC-FD75 Camera won't accept floppy disk

Camera is on; tried to insert a disk - it goes halfway in and stops. Thought I had it backwards, but didn't. Turned it over and tried again. It won't go in. I recharged the battery to the fullest extent, thinking it might be low and have something to do with the problem, then retried inserting the disk. That did not help either. Should I have a certain setting before I insert the floppy disk? What do you think the problem is? Everything worked fine until I turned it on the other night, touched something on the setting accidentallly as I was handling the camera; it beeped 3 times and I then turned it off. Type of disk I purchased is Memorex PC Formatted Diskettes

I tried all of the above because I had the same problem, I ended up snapping the back of the camera. (Broke it),
I bought my FD-91 for $1300.00 cash back when they 1st came out.
I've sold over $150,000 worth of guitars with this camera.
Some of the most Exotic Vintage were taken with this camera.
I'm going to Miss her. :(

It sounds as if the eject mechanism didn't quite do it's job last time it was used. It could be stuck half way between in and out. Try closing the camera and with a fully charged battery keep pushing the eject button and see if it clears the problem. You can imagine that after all those years dust and gunk has built up inside. It's just a bloody shame they can't build cameras today to last that long. At the worst all you'd have to do is pull the back off and have a good look at the drive mechanism. Or pick one up for $10 on Ebay and swap the drives over.

Panasonic DMC-TZ3: one day it's working fine, next it won't power on. Tried the "Power Saver" reset technique posted ... didn't work. Battery is fully-charged.

Try removing the battery and the memory card for 1 minute then return them back. Make sure the battery is inserted properly. If that didn't work, try turning it on without the memory card.

Did you get any error message when you try to turn on your camera?

Irobot scooba 5800 spins quickly then sets off backwards

Remove and clean all of the wheels, and make sure the cliff sensors under the bumper are clean. Tap the bumper with your hand-- really smack it a couple of times. It sounds like the Scooba believes it's stuck against an obstacle.

Camera won't turn on

One suggestion you may want to try is going to there was an issue posted there with Power Shot A540's involving the battery holder that causes similar issues to what you are describing- if your camera has the serial # starting with the #'s posted online they will repair your camera regardless of the warranty status.
