I have a HP camera CW450t camera and cannot turn it on with the power button on top. I know the batteries are good because I can turn on the camera with the review button and review the pictures that I have taken. When the power button is pressed the green light on the back of the camera flashes but the lens does not come out and the led screen does not come on. when you take your finger off of the on/off button the green light goes off as well.
Had the EXACT same problem with the CW450 model. I called support because I was mad and wanted it replaced. The support tech helped me through the issue. The answer is- NiMH. Alkaline batteries are unstable and not powerful enough for use with this c ... HP Digital Cameras

Canon SD4000 camera, when hitting the power button, the screen remains black screen, the green light blinks twice, lens zooms out, shutter opens. Screen remains black, and I do not seem to have any control at all; pressing the zoom button doesn't move lens, no notable reaction to anything. Hit the power button again, the lens zooms back into it's original position, shutter closes (occasionally does not shut completely), green light blinks twice, screen remains black.

I dropped my camera on the beach right as a shallow wave was coming in. In my fumbling to recover the camera I turned it on. The lens extended and remained that way. I took the plastic camera cover off, rinsed all parts (with purified water) that I could. I air and low heat blew dry the camera over several day, and re-assembled it. When I insert batteries I get a power light, but get no lcd screen, no sound of pictures taken on full compression of picture button, no further extension or ret

Optio M20 Camera: Press on/off button to power up camera, the camera opens the lens cover, turns on a red led inside the lens, cycles the lens out and back in,then makes about 5 little popping noises. The back screen shows Pentax Optio screen for a second, then then the screen displays the word Auto Picture in the center of the screen and Green Mode at the bottom and at the same time it cycles the lens out and in. And for a brief moment in the back ground of the screen you can see the picture st

Battery/Power trouble My C-770 is 2 years old and I still have the original L1-10B batterys that came with it. The camera goes through periods of non-use so has not been used excessively. When I put in a newly charged battery the battery indicator says the battery is full, but then take one picture and the light blinks empty and usually dies with the lens out and the ISO numbers still on the screen. I switch the power button into the off position but it generally takes a min before it actuall

Problematic Camera I have a EasyShare DX4530 which has suddenly started acting funny. Here's the sequence of events: - power up works fine - lens comes out ok - green light glows steady, ready for a picture - picture takes fine - green light doesn't turn on again - no amount of pressing the shutter button will bring the green ready light back - pressing the SHARE button a couple times (sometimes 2, 3, even 4 times) will move thru the share sequence and then finally exit that function, turning
