Battery is dead. Replace them. Check the settings in the menu and if you are using rechargeables make sure the settings are correct. Off the shelf should be set as Alkaline. ****I have the same model camera

I have a quanta 3082 MB in a HP Pavilion zd8230us laptop when I startup it beeps constantly got any ideas? anyone


The beeps with have a pattern to them. Listen closely when you first turn the laptop on and listen for the pattern. It might be something like 1-3-2 (1 beep, wait, 3 beeps in a row, wait, 2 beeps) It will repeat for listen for a bit to make sure you have the correct pattern. Once you have that pattern got to the HP webpage, in the support section, in the search type in "beep code errors". It will give you a list of beep patterns and tell you what the problem is. It could be the RAM, it could be another problem with the motherboard; those codes are what you need to have first.

How to repair start-up on my computer


How long is shortly? If it runs and brings up the Windows Desktop and you are allowed to work for 10 minutes or longer then it shuts down, most likely the laptop is overheating. One way to tell if it is overheating is to immediately try to turn it back on after it shuts off. If it will not boot back up, it's overheating. If you let it sit and cool off for a while, then try to boot it back up and it does it successfully, it's overheating.Causes of Overheating:1) Dust all inside the computer. Fans clogged with dust, dust around the vents.2) Fan not working 3) The Thermal Past around the CPU has dried up or is too thin the keep the unit cool.When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

My Thinkpad G41 does not boot up, nothing comes up


Hello

Have you tried swapping out ram modules? This would probably be the cheapest. And, a faulty ram module gives a beep code. Try it, and let me know.

Kind regards

I have a Compaq Cq60-104TU laptop with 2GB RAM and a 250GB hard disk. Windows XP service pack 3 is installed in it. Off late, whenever I turn on the laptop, I get this loud constant beeps. There are around...


Computers beeps are caused by the power supply, system board, graphics/video card or keyboard.
Reboot your system with out the keyboard if it no longer beeps your problem is a couple of stuck keys on the keyboard.
If the beeping continues remove your graphics card and reboot your system.
If your pc still beeps the it is either your power supply or the system board.

It has a lens error. Everytime the camera is turned on it beeps and clicks constantly. It eventually shuts off after displaying "Lens error, restart camera." on the screen.


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Constant beeping and will not re-boot


Question- the beeping, is it short (1 second beeps) or long (2 or more seconds) and how many before it stops? or doesn't it? does it have any rhythm? The beeps correlate to some hardware problem, if you want to check the beeps yourself, just google "Bios beeps" and it will bring up a table of what the beeps mean.

Wont turn on


Are you sure that your batteries were fully charged? I have the same issue when using shop bought aa batteries - or they don't last very long at all.

That 3 beeps and turning off is what should happen along with a "battery low" error message on the screen from experience.

When I bought the recommended charger and two batteries from Amazon - they lasted a lot longer. Search the website for the charger battery code suggested in the instructions.

Camera will not stay on.....


the 3 beeping sound means that the camera has low battery capacity. the lens is stuck out because there is incorrect battery connection. there is an option on the camera setting for the battery type. try this one:
-turn the camera on
-click on Menu button
-select options using left/right, up/down button
-select Set up 2
-Select Battery type
-Select Alkaline for non-rechargable
or Ni-MH for rechargable
-click OK button

this setting should be done when using camera for the first time and whenever you are switching battery types, from rechargable to non-rechargable and vice versa.
