Ist issue: how do you get the battery out? I have been using a nail file to pry it out. 2nd issue: the charger blinks green and orange whether battery is inserted or not. Battery does not seem to charge. 3rd issue: I have camera plugged in by USB. The green power light comes on but that's it. The LCD screen doesn't light up, no other buttons seem to work. Where does my issue lie? Is it the battery, the charger or the camera?


1st- you shouldn't have to do this. Stop filing your nails and you will be able to pry the battery out with a fingernail.2cnd- I can't decide whether this is a bad battery or a fault with the charger. Either way, the battery won't charge, ... Polaroid T737 Digital Camera

Hi all, I have an Olympus FE-300 camera. We have had a battery issue ever since we first got it about 2 years ago. Most of the time, when we first hit the power button, the camera doesn't power up. I then pop the battery open and pop it back in and it seems to work. Then after closing it again, it seems to malfunction again. Sometimes it shows a freshly charged battery in the "red". I have bought a replacement battery, but it seems to be same exact result. This is so frustrating, I have f

When I go to turn on my camera it makes several beeps and shuts off. I bought a new battery and that didnt seem to fix the issue. I can hit the menu button and it briefly turns to the M/DD/YY screen and shuts off again. Any idea why this is happening?


Make sure that the battery is fully charged and hols a good charge on it . This is very important as the fault relates to a poor charge or poor battery charge retaining. If you have confirmed that the battery does have a good charge present , the ch ... Olympus Stylus 730 Digital Camera

Z612 will not format an SD card... 1GB??? Also battery life is very short... have used Kodak battery and a LENMAR DLK8000. And more... lens does not extend when camera turned on! Best Buy has had the camera twice in the past 2 months to try and fix... They have done nothing other than suggest I use Kodak batteries... I used a NEW Kodak and a LENMAR and have been for 2 years... why issues now at the end of my extended warranty with Best Buy????

Battery failure I charge my Pentax Optio S5z battery on the charger then put it in the camera when it is fully charged (green light comes on on the charger) but the camera won't work ie. battery is dead, as i put it back in the charger and the light comes up red like it is flat again. Sometimes I just leave it in the camera and it seems to work after a few days, then may last for a day or sometimes for ages. I'm guessing the battery is stuffed but I want to check before I buy a new one. Please


The only solution for that is to buy a new battery. I had the same problem with my canon 900Ti (NB5 battery), died after less than a year. It probably exceeded it's battery cycle life... have a nice day! ... Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera

I have a Canon 40D and have never replaced the original lithium battery as someone told me that rechargeable Li - ion batteries don't have a lifespan. My picture quality isn't what it use to be and the autofocus seems slow. Is this a battery issue, lens issue or what? I keep my lenses clean but have never had it serviced. The camera is about 4 yrs old. Thanks in advance for your help! :)

Hello, I have a brand new sony cybershot dsc-w310 camera and its worked great for the first 2 days ive had it. Now it doesnt seem to want to turn on. When you press the on/off button, the green power indicator light turns on but absolutely nothing else happens. When you puch the on/off button again the light does not go out.

If the batteries are over 1/4 full, then I recommend trying it without a memory card if you are using one. Sometimes these have conflicts with certain brands. If memory card makes no difference, then I suggest getting the camera's software upda ... Digital Cameras

Lens stuck I have had this problem twice with this camera, the first time I exchanged the camera for a new one. The second time the batteries went dead and the lens was out. It won't turn on and makes this beeping noise when I do try to turn it on. I tried changing out the batteries, but nothing seems to help.

My Nikon CoolPix 5700 seems confused about OFF and ON, and now I can't take a photo becase it won't stay ON long enough for me to press the shutter release. The problem appears a bit like a low-battery issue, but I have been placing totally recharged batteries (as fas as I can tell) in it (two different ones) over and over, and still the camera turns on and off at will. Any ideas? Is there a way to totally reboot the camera, like one reboots hard drives? Thank you.

I have an olympus camera. It's a stylus 850SW. Apparently its supposed to be drop proof but it took a bad fall I guess and the side part that plugs into the computer is now having problems opening. Also, this is going to make it seem like I'm always dropping my camera but a piece of the bottom broke off and I'm unsure how. I got it a little over a year ago. Is there anyway I have a warranty on this camera. I paid so much for it and I really don't want to buy another one. What do I do?!


A "little over a year ago" means no warranty. Besides, the warranty wouldn't cover damage due to dropping the camera. If the camera still works, you can use a card reader to download your pictures and eliminate the need for "the side part that plugs ... Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera

My 450d canon won't turn on and when the battery is in, the WB button (second on the right side of the screen) is blue. I have a feeling this means' get it repaired' as I had a friend borrow it and said they spilt a drink near it but not on it, but this seems like they may have spilt the drink ON my camera and have caused some sort of water damage. I'm really quite worried as I'm often told repairs cost more than the camera is worth and I don't want to have to buy another!

A345 lens often does not open when power button is pressed. By pressing the power button the 2nd time, then pressing it the 3rd time, the camera seems to work normally. This is with used or fresh alkaline batteries. Shometimes the camera makes a short buzzing sound when the lens retracts. Have also had problems with the zoom lens not operating consistently.
