    I can not get may camcorder to turn on at all. I have used a fully charged battery and the ac adaptor does not power it up either. It is less that one year old. Any ideas?

    The battery is fully charged, yet when i use it in the camcorder, i cannot turn on the camera at all. I tried to use the DC cable as well, to see if it were just a problem with the battery, but again there was no response from the camcorder.

Sounds like the battery is shot. Does the camcorder work ok on the AC cord?

After 4 months my Fusion tablet won't turn on??


To help you troubleshoot the issue, please follow the steps given below:
- If your device's battery is almost dead, you'll often see an empty battery indicator on the screen when you try to turn it ON. But if you let the battery completely die, your tablet won't respond at all when you press the Power button.
- To fix this problem, just plug your tablet into a wall charger and let it charge for 15 minutes.
- Now try to power it ON with the Power button, if the problem was caused by a dead battery, it should boot up normally.
- If it doesn't work at all, try plugging the device in with a different cable and charger. The charger or cable could be broken and preventing an otherwise-good device from charging.
- Your device may be powered ON and running but the screen won't turn on because the operating system is frozen and not responding to button presses.
- You'll need to perform a 'Hard Reset', also known as a 'Power Cycle', to fix these types of freezes.
- You'll need to long-press the 'Power button' of the tablet and hold it down for 'Thirty seconds' this will cut the power to your tablet and force it to boot back up, fixing any hard freezes.

Now check if your tablet works fine, if issue persists, please go to your device manufacturer website and see the instructions for performing factory reset or you can contact the manufacturer for further assistance.

My laptop is completely dead, fine yesterday. Today no lights, sounds nothing. I tried removing the battery , unplugging no response. Thanks,


Remove the battery for at least 3 minutes... Then put it back and then plug in the charger and switch on the charger. If the battery is completely drained, it would take a while for the charging to initiate. Please have patience and leave it on charging even though without the charging indication for at least an hour. After that still if the charging indicator doesn't lit, then its definitely your charger or laptop. You will need to take it to a service centre in that case.

I was using my psp while it was charging and the charging light turned off, so i naturally assumed that it was fully charged. But a few minutes later the battery died and it wont charge when i plug it in....


Have you tried to remove the battery and put it back in and try to turn it on. Try removing the battery and putting the charger in and starting the PSP. If it starts, it might be the battery. If it doesn't, it's either the plugin for the charger or the PSP is just dead. If it does start with the charger, try putting the battery back in, if it charges awesome. If it doesn't the battery might be dead.

I got this camera last June and it's been dead since January. Every time i try to charge it, it will not respond to the charge.The battery is completely dead, but when the charger is plugged into...


Hi, Sounds like the battery is toast. Batteries can stop charging any point in their life span. Usually I'd suggest just buying a new battery but because a battery shouldn't die like that within the first year I'd suggest contacting Nikon in your country and seeing what they'll do for you.

Nikon Coolpix 5700 was working fine, now it won't turn on. Batteries are fine, but camera just won't power up at all. No error message, nothing but a dead (black) screen. No idea why it won't come on--it's...


Two quick suggestions first is the battery chamber contacts clean make sure they are clean. Are you using a battery pack with rechargeable AA's ? if so check the battery orientation it only takes one out of place. If you are using the rechargeable battery I know you said the batteries were fine but make sure the power is up on the rechargeable. I've had it where I put a battery on charge knowing it was pretty well dead came back 5 minutes later and the light was green, took the battery of the charger unplugged the charger plugged the charger back in and put the battery back on the charge. It then completed its true cycle.

Battery Dont Charge


I had the same problem. I had a 1 year warranty, so I called 1800-435-7732 and they sent me a new battery within 5 days. I just received it today and it works perfectly. Hope this helps you! =]

Battery Dont Charge


jpierre's solution (in another thread) was right on the money. Touch the positive (+)end of the 9v battery to the positive (+) end of the camera battery.Leave them touching for a few seconds (10 seconds should be more thansufficient). Seems these lithium-ion batteries are subject to a'digital memory.' Subjecting it to a volt surge almost three timeshigher seems to clear it.

In short, it works like a charm.

hmm, that happened to me too when the battery was dead. try recharging your camera. make sure it is sitting on the charging dock right. make sure the charger is plugged in and it's working. see if the battery was put in correctly. if none of this helps, try a different battery, maybe the one you bought is no good. who knows what shelflife is on those

Battery Charging light doesn't flash and battery doesn't charge


I have the same problem. Worked for 3 years and now the battery charges to green but goes dead immediately. I've changed batteries. Its the camera not the batteries. Works fine plugged in. Obviously the cameras are not charging the batteries. Canon must know but I cannot find a fix and warranty is over. I guess buying the expensive camera of the day isnt always assuring you of quality.
