Hi When I tried to turn on my camera the message 'Replace the batteries' appeared on the display. It came up even after changing to new batteries 2-3 times. The batteries were inserted correctly. Can anyone help? regards Michael

Apperture base plate set needs replacing or there is a short in the camera ( camera dropped or acid leak ? ) . Especially the first broblem can be sorted only by trained people with some experience.

Hi,

Turn the Power Off and On again error message is displayed when the Lens in the Camera is stuck is affected by a malfunction. Try turning off the power and on again. If the issue persists, try performing a power reset.
To power reset the Camera; turn off the Camera and remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the Camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Then, reinsert the battery and check if it helps.
You may also try INITIALIZING the Camera.
To Initialize the Camera, press the On-Screen key.
Touch MENU-->SETUP-->SETUP 2-->INITIALIZE-->OK. Initializing the Camera will change all the settings back to factory reset.
If the issue persists, service may be required.

Keep getting change battery message and camera turns off.


Hi,

I had this on mine. If you pen the battery compartment door, you will see a piece of plastic labelled "CR1220". You can pull this out and replace the little CR1220 battery that it holds. That ought to solve your problem.

CAMERA MESSAGE SD790 IS


Well, I haven't used a Canon PowerShot SD790 IS Digital Camera before, but I want to suggest this: before you start thinking of putting your camera apart, try to clean the battery terminals and the battery contacts of the camera with clean white paper, then reinsert the pack. Please be very careful when doing this so that you do not break or bend the contacts or terminals; they are usually delicate material.

Change the batteries message even with new NIMH RShack batteries


The solution is to change the small 'date/time' battery. You can have the regular batteries as charged as you like, it won't make any difference. The tiny date/time battery is in the same compartment as the regular batteries, on the opposite side of the hinge. Extract it with a fingernail, it is situated on the left hand wall of the battery compartment (when the camera is inverted and the compartment open).

When I turn on my panasonic digital camera DMC-LZ7 (with fresh batteries) it attempts to focus but cant then displays a message saying "turn off camera and turn back on again". If i do this, the same...


Looks like a problem with the CCD sensor. Try removing batteries, and SD card for 5 minutes. Replace new batteries and try again.
If issue persists, you will have to get the piece serviced.

Hi I found this info on the Nikon Australia website:

"System Error" or "Lens Error" message in LCD monitor trnsp.gif Question My COOLPIX camera displays a "System Error" or "Lens Error" message. What should I do? trnsp.gif Answer Having a "System Error" or "Lens Error" message displayed on the camera's LCD monitor would generally indicate that your camera needs servicing. A System Error is a general error which can be caused by many things: lens problem, CF Card problem, general camera failure, etc. To troubleshoot, please try the following:
  1. Use the memory card that originally came with your camera (or a Nikon approved card).
  2. Remove and replace the battery.
On the other hand, a Lens Error generally means that an error has occured during the lens operation. To troubleshoot, please try the following:
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove and replace the battery.
  3. Turn on the camera.
If the above tips do not help, your camera must be sent to our Nikon Authorised Service Centres, there are no user serviceable parts in our Nikon COOLPIX cameras. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and we will do everything to repair your Nikon camera as quickly as possible. Click Here for our Nikon Authorised Service Centres details.


Seems you may just have to remove and replace the battery - sort of like a Windows Restart to fix a computer problem! - this would reset your camera's memory.

Hope this helps.

Canon A95 "Change Batteries" problem!


I have this problem as well. I thought it was a problem with my NiMH batteries. So, I bought a volt meter to make sure the batteries worked. I have 8 AA NiMH batteries. I charged them all up and tested them with the volt meter. They were all good to go. However, no matter what I put in the camera one of two things happens:
1. I get the "change batteries" message.
2. I don't get the message, but the next time I check the camera (a few days later), one of them is totally drained.
Something is very wrong and I plan on contacting Canon.
