Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
I bought Benq c1030 Eco three months ago. At the very beginning it was doing the job perfectly. Suddenly, some problems occurred. Actually, I can't always switch it on. Sometimes it works, but sometimes it doesn't. Batteries are not the problem. Yesterday I bought new ones but it didn't change anything.
Could you please tell me what the problem could be?
Thank you in advance
Hi there its a problem of the camera power switch. Some time moisture damaged the surface of the switch or some time attack by the dust. Visit service center for cleaning the power switch. Thanks.

I have a Olympus FE 190 Camera. After a couple of pictures the battery reads red and I can take the battery out and put it back in again and it reads green. I thought maybe I have a problem with the battery so I bought a generic battery for this camera charged it up and the camera doesn't turn on. So I bought an olympus battery, charged it up and put it in and the camera still doesn't work. the only battery that kind of works is the original battery the camera came with.

I have a Fujifilm Finepix F50SE camera that stopped working sometime ago. I charged it but it still would not work so I thought the battery might be bad and bought a new one. The camera worked for a very short while, then stopped. I bought another battery, but it would not work. I then thought the charger was bad, but it did charge for a good while. The camera's zoom is out and will not retract and the camera will not turn on. I don't have a camera repair shop anywhere near me, especially

Battery Problem I bought a Nikon Coolpix L12 Digital Camera this past summer and have had no problem until last night. My camera turned off and said "battery exhausted."

Nikon Coolpix L110 camera was bought for me for Christmas 2010. Worked fine at first, but now seems to be having problems. Batteries don't last.

Hi. I have a Canon G9 camera. I bought in October 8, 2007 but did not register the camera's warranty until a few days ago. Here's the problem. I dropped the camera a weeks ago... Everything was working fine, no problems. After I bought an extra battery I tried turning the camera on but would not power up. In fact will only power on if I insert and remove the battery several times. Once I get it going, however, it powers off with the lens extended. Please tell me what my options are, s

Battery Problem I have trouble with apparent battery failure due to bad contacts on the slide-out tray thingie that holds the batterys. Jamming it in several times when I change batteries sometimes helps, but often the camera will stop working in the middle of a shoot and indicate the battery is discharged. A quick in-and-out a couple of times of the thingie restores full battery power, but by then I've probably missed my picture. Anyone else have this problem? Other than that (and piss-poor aut

My GE A1035, which i've got about seven months ago always displays "battery exhausted" even though the battery was fully charged. I also bought new batteries to test if it was the cause but the problem was not solved. My coworker who also owned another camera borrowed the batteries from but to my surprise both batteries worked in his camera. I hope you could address this problem immediately. Thank you.

Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later. I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co

Batteries "depleted" my camera was working perfect with some rechargeable NiMh batteries i had bought, giving me about 400 shots / charge. However at one point, for no apparent reason, when i used them, they would be shown as 'depleted' by the camera after about 4-5 shots, shutting the camera down. It stayed like this so I decided to buy a set of new NiMh batteries, i bought panasonic brand. But the problem remains now, whenever i insert batteries, they will be depleted (or at least according to

My camera is less than a year old but has recently been giving problems with the battery connection - I believe. The battery shows full and the camera works perfectly, then with no indication why the camera will not turn on. When left and then turned on later it sometimes works again, without the battery being charged in the meantime and with it again showing full. As I am going on holiday in 2 weeks I have not time to send it back to cannon under guarantee. Can you suggest anything I can check?
