I cant get it to stay on!

I push the button to turn it on, and it just shuts right back off. It is fully charged so I cant figure out what the problem is. I only used it for two days before it started doing this. What do I do??

    I had the same problem and then realized that although the battery may appear to be in, it was not all the way. Try reinserting the battery, making sure you press the battery all the way in and then try it.

If it is almost new, return it to where you bought it for a replacement. There are no user serviceable parts inside the player. Note that most players require the button to be held for a few seconds at turn on.

Nikon s9300 - When I turn it on, the lense fully extends, but the screen stays black. I have to pop the battery out, then put back in for the lense to retract. Battery is fully charged and even tried

When the battery is fully charged, please put it in again. That means, if it is still in, remove it once again.
Switch it on, and even if you don't see a thing try to make a picture.
Then press the display button several times, to see if anything comes on the screen again.
If the camera does not respond after that, you should go back to the dealer, of contact Nikon.

Kodak cd83 easyshare

First check the batteries (are they fully charged, are they inserted correctly). Next connect the camera to an AC adapter (if available). Try to turn the camera back on. If it works, then try different batteries. If the camera is still not working, after checking the trouble shooting section in your camera manual, call the camera manufacturers support desk.

Power will not stay on

I had the same problem. Then I noticed on the back of the player was a "lock" button. Once I turned it to unlock, the problem was solved.
