Please make sure the memory card is properly connected. Remove it and insert it again. Check if the battery is properly inserted in the camera. Remove the battery and wipe it with a dry cloth. If your camera uses AAA rechargable batteries ensure the polarity is correct when you insert them in the camera.

I have a 2000 Lincoln navigator and today it wouldn't turn on battery is good it doesn't make any noise when i try turning it on is it the starter or could it be something else

could be the starter solenoid or your battery checks out fine on voltage but does not have enough amperage. you can take both to the auto parts store and have both checked out.
after thought make sure you battery contacts(cable connector) are clean dirty corroded contacts cause amperage loss.

My m863 kodak camera charging light won't turn on.

Is the camera charging? Remember when charging thought the computer NOT to switch the camera on since this will deactivate the model to charge. Try the following: 1. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Turn the camera on. 2. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a no power repair with KODAK or a new cable.

My Finepix s5700 will not turn on even with new batteries. The last thing I did was delete some photos from the memory card. The next time I went to turn it on I thought the batteries were dead and so I...

A possible cause could be the "cut off" switch for the xd picture card door. Check the plastic tabs on the door for damage. If it looks ok then open and close it a few times to see if the micro switch on the board is stuck. This is a cut off switch to prevent accidental removal of the picture card whilst the camera is powered up. The battery door may have 1 aswell so best to check this also. If there is damage then you maybe able to effect a repair to the plastic tab or replace the door. if the micro switch is damaged then you can bypass with either a solder bridge or wire. Have you put the batteries in correctly? - just an after thought....
