If pluged into light not powering at all


Firstly insert the battery. When you plug the PSU into the machine does a charging light turn on? If not then check the fuse in the mains plug as it may have blown. If the fuse is OK then you may have a defective PSU, although the motherboard could also be defective. Try a new PSU to determine if which component is faulty. <br /> Now remove the battery and insert the PSU. Will the machine turn on or do any power lights illuminate? If power lights illuminate and the machine will not turn on then I would suggest the motherboard is at fault. If the machine turns on briefly the turns off before displaying the splash screen then I would suggest the RAM, CPU or motherboard is at fault.<br /> If the unit works without the battery installed then it is probably a battery problem, although it is possible the charging circuit on the motherboard is fried.<br /> Hope this helps,<br /> www.PuterCare.com<br />

Why when i switch my hp 6720s on does the battery light flash amber then goes white nd the laptop switches off? all in 5 seconds


It sounds as if the battery is too low to power the unit on.

I have a sony cybershot dsc-f707 Icant zoom in or out only after I take a picture. I also wanted to know if I need to charge the lense to zoom?


Option 1:

Reset the Camera and check if it helps to resolve the issue.(Resetting the Camera will reset the settings of the Camera to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camera).

The RESET button is located inside the battery/ Memory Stick cover. The Camera should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.

Option 2:

If issue persists try Power reset the Camera by removing the battery from the Camera and inserting it after 1 minute.

Use a fully charged Battery in the Camera so that the Zoom function work normally.

My DSC-F707 won't record images.


Sounds like the CCD has developed a fault. I had a F717 which had similar faults but this turned out to be a batch of faulty CCD's which I know the F707 shared. This maybe why Sony are not keen to get involved as it will cost them money. JVC had a similar problem with some of it's Camcorders using a similar CCD and they replaced them FOC even those well out of warranty. Keep trying with Sony and mention the CCD and serial number of the F707 and see if it is one of the faulty batch.

DSC-F707 Digital Camera Problem


I did the same thing. What I found out was that it's very important to charge a lithium battery completely on the first use. You probably took it off the charger too soon. If it's not completely charged on the first use it won't be able to hold any charge.
Sadly, I ended up having to buy another one and try again.
Sorry.

Camera does not turn on.


I had a similar problem and it was a result of the battery not charging correctly. I bought the travel battery charger and an additional battery from amazon to see if maybe the battery was just old or just not charging. I figured out that the internal camera charging mechanism just wasn't working b/c the battery charged fine with the travel charger. I like the travel charger better and with two batteries I can charge one while the other is in use. I haven't had a problem since. When you buy the new battery you still have to charge it before it's first use. I hope this works for you as it did for me.
