    it didn't work. If i put brand new batteries in it it will turn on but within like 30 seconds it says battery depleted and then shuts off. I know I didn't do anything to make it not work. please if you have any other ideas I'd love to hear them because I have no clue about these things

    Thank you ever so much

Take batteries out and clean the base of the battery compartment with a pencil eraser do the same with the battery compartment cover contact's now try. If that fail hold the battery compartment tight then turn on. If it comes on then - open the compartment and lay a piece of foil across the batteries and close the lid. does it work? No to bad it dies but you should have a warranty- do you have other proof of purchase?

    Well this does seem that either the 'fresh batteries' are not so fresh.
    What sort of batteries are you putting in?
    These camera need very high energy batteries
    like Ni/Cad or NiMah- rechargeable.
    Normal alkaline will not last very long.
    Tell me more about the batteries.

Would like to know model # for charger for a sanyo vpc-t700 camera. I lost my charger and need to find a replacement charger that came with the camrea. That is why I need model #. Please Help Jon

I have the same problem. Sanyo advised this charger is no longer made. Other than eBay, Radio Shack has charger that will work with the battery in the VPC-T700 and priced at $30. Walmart has a universal charger for numerous devises with varying connections, also priced at $30. I did not try the Walmart option; however, the packaging does list Sanyo products are compatable.

The battery for my sanyo digital camera won't charge.

I had this same problem with my Sanyo. I went on E Bay and purchased a new battery.. It was about 8 dollars and shipped from China. But it worked when I put the new battery in and charged it.

Pentax IqZoom 700 film camera E9 error shutter failure Hi, I have a pentax iqzoom 700 that I'd like to repair myself but E9 appears on the lcd screen after inserting a new battery and powering on. Other posts mention this is a shutter failure. When turning on, the zoom lens extends and the outer shutter covering the outside of the lens opens. I've read tutorials that say you can sometimes fix a shutter error by causing a power outage during a shot and opening the battery door while taking a picture, but this isn't possible in my case because no shot is fired when the shutter is pressed, likely because the camera recognizes the shutter failure. I've also watched videos on how to repair leaf shutters and mechanical shutters, but the manual for this camera states the shutter is an AE between-the-lens shutter so I have no idea how to disassemble and fix this sort of thing. Looking thru the lens both thru the front of the camera and in the film compartment on the other side show a dark covering behind the lens even while the outer shutter is open covering the outer lens, which I'm assuming is the between-the-lens shutter. Ideally, I'd like to repair this myself, as there's nothing lost if I screw up and it's not worth it otherwise to take it for repair. I'm a complete novice with absolutely no prior knowledge of taking apart things, but I can follow directions so any suggestions or links to videos/tutorials would be very much appreciated Side note that I've searched the web extensively and have yet to find anything specific to repairing this camera model, and I'm not knowledgeable enough to adapt a tutorial for a different camera to this model Thanks in advance!
