Hi, can I first ask do you charge a fee for your help. If not, can you help with the following problem? I've recharged the battery for my Canon 40D and placed it back in the camera. The red light flickers and then no power at all. I've done this a couple of times thinking it may be the battery but the last time I tried it then flashed red and a blue light at the same time. This blue light is the printer light next to the Menu button. I don't know how to fix this? Can you help? Thanks.
Try replacing the battery. If the battery has gone bad, charging it will do no good. If it is a new battery, you may have faulty battery terminals in your camera, the memory card switch may be bad, or some other internal failure may have occurred. ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
I have a HP Photo Smart Caera. The button on the top you mash to take the picture keeps falling off. I have had this fixed three times. This time it happened outside and I could not find the spring. Does anyone know where they fix HP cameras. The place I have been taken it to is not doing a very good job of sending it off. I would like to do it myself since the warrantee is up any way. I live in Greenville, NC So far I have not been able to find anyone who fixes them around here. Thank you, Nanc

My cannon rebel will not take picture or go to the menu the only thing it will do is turn on. And when i turn it on a message pops up that says "shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to off and on again or re-install the battery." I have tried turning the camera on and off and reinstalling the battery multiple times but nothing works.

My Kodak m1093 stops charing in 5 minutes on a new battery. The old battery was dropped due to i thinked it goes dead but that was an lens error that i fixed later. when i used a new branded battery, it charges it only for a few minutes but if i remove and reinsert the battery while charing, it continues for more 5 minutes. i have to remove battery 10-15 times to charge it fully.

My camera won't turn on. I charge it and the red charging light comes on. I have returned the camera for the same problem 3 times. bought it from WalMart. I was on my vacation the 1st time it happened, and Walmart gave me a hard time about exchanging it. The 1st one I got, it charged and I got it to stay on for a few min. I took a few pictures, but it wouldn't cut back on. Similar thing happened the 2nd time. Now the same thing is happening the 3rd time. I checked to make sure the battery was in

My Samsung S730 says "low battery" and turns itself off immediately. I know that my batteries are fully charged and I have tried four different sets of batteries. Each time, it says the batteries are low and turns itself off. What can I do to fix it? This camera goes through very light usage (probably have only ever taken 200 pictures with it) and is in perfect condition. How can it be broken?

Hi, I wrote in a couple of days ago about my camera resetting every time I turn it on. It's a Casio Exilim EX-S500. It appeared that the battery wasn't connecting right. I bought a new battery, thinking it might be the battery itself, but it's not. It's just not catching when I push it in. Is there a way to fix this? It doesn't appear that anything is broken/missing in the battery compartment. Thanks in advance for your help.
Hey,\015\012\015\012\015\012Basically, the pins that touch the battery, you can most likely pull or twist them down a little bit without breaking anything.\015\012\015\012\015\012If you want to be sure you don't break it, and ... Digital Cameras

Help!! My Sony DSC-W100 isn't working. I've been sifting through the message boards and none of the solutions were working for me. Some of my friends were fiddling with my camera and the camera got left with the lens out and no battery left. So I charged the battery and put the battery back in but now the lens is expanding and retracting four times while the camera reads "access" and then "turn the camera off and then on." I've been doing this repeatedly with no avail! Is there anyway to fix it

Hello typrice, at the second paraghrap you said: "Or the battery ran down with the lens extended." as a possible cause. I'm quite sure this is what happend with my camera (is a FE-340 model) so I tryed all the fixes 1 to 4, because I don't think it is a blocking problem of the lens. The simtom is just as discribed (lens go out and in 3 times, then turn off). I still can't fix the problem, there is any way to restart the software?? I find it should be simple to fix but still have no success... PL

Very slow After I take a picture it takes a very long time until I can take another one. The viewfinder lamp swithces slowly from green to orange and the camera is not responding to anything until the lamp stays green. It takes even longer if i used the flash. Anyway I can fix it? I opened the camera and I noticed there is a battery (like a watch battery). Can that be replaced? Anybody knows anything about this battery? Thank you in advance for any feedback.

When I first bought the camera five years ago. it would take 8 to 10 pictures before batteries needed changed. This kept decreasing over time to 8 pictures maximum, then six pictures, then four pictures. Now I only get 1, sometimes 2, and occasionally 3 pictures before a battery change.
