ViviCam5385 Won't Turn On

I took a picture and it just shut off. I thought it was because the battery was dead, but I tried replacing the batteries a few times and it won't turn on. It isn't showing any signs that it works at all. Anyone have a solution? Also, does this camera have a reset button? Where?

There is a small watch battery inside the camera that cauld reset the camera's bios but you will need to desolder it and i dont think you want to go that far.

Battery is new, engine won't turn over.

The voltmeter should only go as high as 14-15 volts when the engine is running. I would check for a poor connection between the battery and starter.

Have a john deere sabre turn key won't start thought battery was dead charged battery still won't start jump start with car battery it will start then . try to engage reverse with blades running it...

Some mowers have a mowing reverse safety switch. That safety will kill the mower if you try to reverse with the deck engaged. Some mowers even have an override button that has to be held while backing up. As for the battery thing, no matter how much you charge a bad battery you will not get it to start a mower if it has a bad cell or two. I would use a multimeter to check battery voltage, but the end result would still be the same, replace the battery.

I hope this gets you going again.

Camera was low on battery. Took a couple of pictures with no problem then got it home to charge the battery and the camera is dead. Won't turn on or charge. Tried plugging it in directly with the...

1. Check if the battery is positioned and seated well in the camera.

2. If OK, and problems persists, exchange the battery and recheck.

3. If that does not help, your camera needs probably to be repaired.

My Kodak EasyShare C180 10.2MP Digital Camera is less than a year old and suddenly won't turn on. I thought the batteries were dead so I replaced them...twice...and tried changing the direction around...


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.

Battery

A battery with a dead cell will not charge. Remove battery, take to Auto Zone get it checked. If battery is dead, replace with the best and biggest CCA available. Only cost $1.00 to go first class.

Camera will not turn on

Like dotball said, It looks to me like the batteries have gone dead. First charge the batteries and if that doesn't solve the problem, try new batteries.

Not turning on and has strange smell

Powershot A640 Could Not Be Powered On, Burnt Smell

My Powershot A640 died during a picture shot, lens remaining open. I thought it may be due to the dead batteries. But after putting new batteries and pushing the on/off button, the on/off indicator blinked once then shut off by itself. After a while, a strange smell came from camera batteries area, and I could feel warm there too. Immediately I took out all the batteries from camera.

When checking the posts here the other day, I tried one solution and got the lens back to close: first took out the memory card from camera, then put the new batteries in; push the on/off button with no memory card. I found the lens retracted a little before camera shut off by itself. I pushed on/off button three times to get the lens fully close. However, the burnt smell came out again. I immediately took out the batteries.
Did I get a short circuit inside? Is there any ways to fix it?

Kodak easy share z612 will not turn on to take a picture

When the battery dies, usually the camera will retract the lens if possible. If the battery is so dead the lens can not retract, I would recommend trying to charge or change the battery. Or try to turn the camera on, and then manually shutting it off if you can.
