Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Bowens BW1848A infrared flash trigger that doesnt seem to work. I have put in a fresh PP3 battery but nothing happens and there is no indication that anything is on in the unit. Is there a specific method of firing the trigger or is there some way of resetting the units as i notice that there is a tiny red indicator next a small hole on the side of each unit or do i have a duff trigger? Btw neither of the little indicator lights illuminates when every thing is connected and powered up,

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit. If I use the batteries alone, I will eventually get a red blinking light at the back of the camera, indicating low battery power, hence the purchase of a power adapter. When using both power adapter and batteries, the red light on the front of the camera is illuminated. The green light on the back of the camera is blinking. The camera seems to work fine while recording video. But why won't th

I just received a Polaroid Pogo printer as a present. When I charged it for the first time, the LED flashed yellow (ok) then, after about 3 hours, green when it was charged (ok). When I removed the unit from the AC supply it immediately flashed Red (...not ok) indicating "out of battery". I disconnected and reconnected the battery and tried again, but still no success.

Olympus x-840 digital camera. Hi, there is a problem with the battery life; fully charged batteries seem to be exhausted after only a dozen or so pictures. The battery indicator plunging from a full set of greens to a single red and then the camera refusing to turn on. Then after taking the batteries out and re-inserting them everything seems fine again for the next few shots - and then the same cycle of events plays out again...


The best solution is to buy NiMh batteries 2300 mA or greater 2500 mA to 2700 mA and so I have no more problems with this excellent Olympus x 840 camera. In Belgium i have payed a little more than 50 euro for the batteries and the charger. ... Digital Cameras

Hi I have a Samsung ST550 Camera. My problem is it won't charge. It's cable has an indicator light and should turn red to indicate that it's charging and turns green when it's fully charged.

The small sliding bar which operates the closure to the battery compartment on my Canon Ixus 750 Camera has popped out when I tried to open it to replace the battery.

I am having difficulty putting it back and am reluctant to force it in case I break one of the plastic hooks. What is the best way forward?
