Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My DSCS780 says Turn the power off and on again but, it does not turn on what should I do...I also heard you could reset the camera if so how do you do that?



Answers :

Hi,

The Turn off and on again error message displays when there is an internal malfunction or a malfunction with the Lens. The error message normally displays with the issue with the Lens. Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Try power resetting the Camera.
Turn off the Camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds.
Then, allow the Camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Re-insert the battery pack and check if the Lens retracts.
You can also try resetting the Camera back to factory default. This can be done only if you're able to access the Menu of the Camera. To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE option from the Setup 1 Menu of the Camera to OK. (Menu-->Setup-->Setup 1-->Initialize-->OK.)

This should resolve the issue. If the issue persists, service may be required.

The camera turns on, but the lense makes a clicking noise and then the screen says Turn the power off and on again. I have tried this, and also tried resetting it but nothing works. The lense also does not retract, even when the camera is off.

When I plug the camera in it says the usb device could not be found. Everything worked great and now it does this on every PC I try it on.

My Canon 5D mkI turns on ok, will focus, displays top and back, but it will not take a shot. I have two batteries, both which I have charged to full and tried (display shows full charge). I have also tried two seperate CF cards. I have tried cleaning all contacts. Still it won't take a photo. The shutter will work when I use the "clean sensor" function though.

Resolution olympus d-560 ...when i set the resolution to sq1:1024x768 (76 frames) press "OK" and turn the camera off it resets back to hq:2048x1536 (20 frames), it keeps doing this even if i shoot some pictures and then turn it off. could it be the memory card ? the batteries are new and everything else works fine, the camera is about 3 years old.

No, it resets itself because it is an older camera.Most older cameras will, once turned off, return to their original settings. So, if you want it to be 76 frames, you will have to do that each time you turn on your camera. ... Olympus Camedia C-350 Digital Camera

Aloha, My Lumix DMC-TZ3 is having issues. When I turn it on it is extremely dark. It's almost as if the camera is only registering one side of the color spectrum. Even the pictures that are taken come out dark, so I'm guessing it's a lens problem. Not sure how it happened, because the camera was not dropped or treated badly anytime recently. The day before it started going wonky, the pictures and camera were fine. Could this be a lens issue or something internal. Is there a reset button to resto

Samsung L730 My camera appears to be stuck. The lens usually pops out when it is turned on. However, when I turned it off today, it remained out. I tried removing the memory card and battery. Also, it won't turn off unless I remove the battery. When it is on, the screen is black and the usual green light goes off after initially pressing the power button. Is there a way to reset it?

I am trying to find the schematics for the main board for my Panasonic Lumix tz-5 camera. When I try to turn it on it says that it is "Connecting to USB" even though it is not connected. I have taken it apart a couple times to see if there is any corrosion on the usb connection or on the chip that the usb connects to.
