Wont turn on

My (fairly new) pentax camera won't switch on. It's been working fine for since i got it. I left it on it's docking station for a couple of days and now it wont switch on. The battery is fully charged (and is only about a month old) but i get no sign of life out of the camera at all. Any ideas?

Usually when we see this kind of symptom it is due to an internal fuse being blown. Sometimes they blow for seemingly no reason, but once replaced the camera functions as normal and lives a long productive life. With a camera this new it is a highly likely explanation for sudden death. The fuse is not user accessible and the camera will have to be sent to a repair facility or the manufacturer for the problem to be diagnosed and the fuse replaced.

Why wont my HP photosmart R967 turn on battery is new and docking station is fine but it will turn on if connected to docking station

It is likely the battery is not making contact properly or is not getting fully charged.
Check the instructions on battery connection on page 9 and confirm the lights are blinking correctly to show battery is charging.

Ipod touch will not switch on fully charged left on docking staton all day swiched off with docking station

how many times have you charged it
Ipod batteries have a lifespan so they can only be recharged a certain ammount of times before they need replacing

if it will turn on with a charger either your battery is completely dead or the battery connections are loose or faulty

hope this helps

Won't switch on. Was working fine; battery running low so removed it to recharge as I have done many times before. On reinstalling battery the camera is completely dead.


Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

My kodak easyshare wont turn on anymore and it worked fine the other week ive tried putting new batteries in it and it still wont turn on i dont kno what to do or how to fix it and its a great camera ive...

Try removing the batteries then either plugging your camera in with the AC adapter or the docking station. Try cleaning the contacts from the battery and the battery compartment of the camera.If your camera works with either one of these then you have a problem with either the batteries or the battery contacts. If your camera doesn't work with the AC adapter then you will have to send the camera in for repair.

Camera wont charge

Hi, if you are using the KLIC-5000 battery try to clean the metal contacts on the battery. Try also to remove the battery of your camera dock your camera on the docking station then turn on the camera, if the camera will not turn on it means the charging mechanism of the dock is defective. Now if the camera turns on it means the battery is defective that is why you can charged it.

Docking station

I had the same problem. I did need to take the clear plastic insert off but then I had to put a rubber band around the dock and camera (more on the left of the camera and dock) to hold it evenly on there since the camera was leaning on the right and wasn't charging for me. Now it charges as soon as I put it on there with the rubber band with no blinking red light anymore! Hope this helps!

Kodak DX4330 shuts down

Unscrew some of the screws (the ones you can manage to remove), press on the little connector on the bottom, put some batteries in and try it. When I put the batteries in, it worked for me, and so I screwed it back up, and it's continued working pretty much. I think something might have gotten loose on these cameras. I thought mine was through, but it seems to work now!
