Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
Camara wont turn on, led goes on for a few sconds and tuns off
If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that's\015\012preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your\015\012problem\015\012may be due to weak/worn out batteries\015\012or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera - which can\015\012prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.\015\012Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and\015\012wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into\015\012the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean\015\012the battery contacts, place the batteries back in the camera and give them a full\015\012charge. This\015\012cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 80% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time to replace the batteries, or the\015\012camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

Just bought the ViviCam X014. Installed batteries and SD card. The camara will turn on and the LED screen will illuminate (becomes white) but that's about all the thing will do. No image appears in the LED screen. I cannot zoom in, or out, and pressing the Mode button (or any button for that matter) does nothing. There was no user manual with the camara, just the basic quick start guide, which has provided no information on what to do. What am I missing?
Are these regular batteries or rechargeables? Are they fully charged? If they are regular batteries that came with the camera, test them to be sure they didn't die in the packaging. If all fails, return the camera. ... Vivitar ViviCam 8025 Digital Camera

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
