Like most battery-powered products, it's best to remove batteries when not in use for a long time to avoid possible damage to batteries and/or Viewcam ®.

Powers on then shuts off

No such thing as a reset button you can use after you dropped the camera. But the first reaction should be, check where the damage is. If you have any damage on the lens (barrel) you should solve that. If the lens can't move the camera will shut down to prevent any damage to the moving parts of the camera.
Then remove the battery. leave it out for a few moments and then reinsert the battery. Switch it on again.
If it continues to switch off, i'm afraid it really is damaged a lot.
Think what to do, let is repair or buy a new camera. First check what they will charge you for repairs.

Fuji a350. When I got the camera, it took many many photos(50-100) with alkaline...

Many digital cameras (eg Samsung D53, Nikon 2100) have extremely poor battery life with alkaline batteries (under 20 shots!). Sometimes they won't even take a single picture.

Try using rechargeable batteries or "oxyride" disposable batteries. They perform infinately better.

Camera exposed to rain. Battery immediately removed and camera dried but it won't power up now. No obvious sign of water damage inside.

You have two ways to handle that.
First: (Just saying- if there is a water ''damage'' YOU CAN'T SEE IT.) So if you think you are professional in theese stuff you can take a screwdriver, open the camera and clean its parts.

Second: Take that to a real professional to fix it. (The minus is that you have to pay) And here we go:)

How long do you need to keep the camera charged? Leaving it on the docking station always being charged would damage the camera????

Leaving the camera on the charger will not hurt the battery. The type of battery you have will only charge till full and then stop charging.

It got wet and now wont turn on. It was diet soda that sprung a leak in my pocketbook. I grabbed cell phone first and camera second but while not immersed it probably did get inside. I do get a quick turn...

Hi,

hmmm... stop turning it on yet.. let it dry for maybe 24~48 hours then try to turn it on. If problem persists, contact your home support from this LINK.


I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!
Thanks for using Fixya!

My tough 8000 got wet

Hello,
Do these please:

1. Remove the battery.

2.Put your camera to dry and hot place. Or you may leave it under direct and strong sun light for a few hours at least.
It is better to leave it there one or two days.

3. Look at your camera in a detailed manner. Is there any water drop or wet inside? If there is then leave it again under sun.

4.Put your battery to its place.

5. Open camera for a while to learn the condition. If it works then there is no problem.

6. If it won't work then you should better go to the nearest Authorized Service Center, and let them have a look at the camera wheather it damaged or not.

Regards.

Camera just died mid-use. Battery is fully

They do, occasionally. Try removing the battery, leaving it out for an hour or so, and then put it back in again. If the manual says that there is a reset use that, but removing the battery usually does the trick.

Every time I put new batteries in (rechargable batteries or not) the camera will only last to take 1 or 2 photos then say the battery is flat. why is this and is it repairable?

If the camera has been exposed to moisture there may be condensation still inside the camera; this causes a short and cause undue drain on the battery. Will also eventually damage the camera. remove the battery and leave the battery cover off .Place the camera in a warm place for a couple of days, or aim a blow dryer into the battery compartment for a few minutes.
If that doesn't help,then it's probably a defect in the camera circuitry and it's not worth repairing with the low price of digital cameras these days.

How to charge!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the best way to charge the batteries is to take them out and place them in an external battery charger, this will also avoid any damage to the camera directly

then also check to see output MA of the USB adaptor which would generally be very less and takes very long to charge

for example if the batteries are 2200MAh and the output MA of the USB adaptor or for that matter of even an external adaptor is 200MA then it takes roughly 11 hours to completly charge the batteries

cheers
pls rate if this was any help

Hp photosmart 812 - no power

Taking a camera from a near freezing environment into a lovely warm house can cause condensation to form inside the camera. Mant cameras are designed to close themselves down if they sense any moisture so I suggest leaving the camera in a nice warm air flow. Not hot, just warm and leave the batteries and card out and the doors open to allow some warm air to circulate inside the camera. It could take some time. Also make sure the battery contacts aren't corroded or dirty and make sure the memory card is clean too. If that doesn't work I'd guess some damage had been caused by the moisture....... BMW
