Answers :

Is the new battery fully charged?
\015\012You mean no lights at all even a quick blink on any other light when you switch it on?
\015\012Did you plug the battery in correct way? (I guess it wont fit if its the other way around :-) but there are batteries that doesn't have keyway and they fit exactly even if they are plugged in incorrectly meaning their connectors doesn't reach)

"Card Locked" The "card locked" message keeps coming up even though my memory card is not locked. I bought a new memory card, and put that in, but it still says "card lock." I even put new batteries in, but still "card locked." So I know it's the camera, and not the memory card. What do I need to do?


Hi!There's a small switch on the memory card reader inside the camera which detects that the card is locked. Most likely this switch is broken. You can try to point it with needle or something but I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a ... Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX5. Camera switches itself on even though it is switched off. Many occurrences of this. It has been examined and tested but nothing found wrong. Re-charged batteries run down quickly, even new ones. Comprehensive notes have been taken of the many events. In previous events, it switched itself on, then off again within seconds. This time it needed to be switched off by switching on then off switch.

Batteries This camera has been the worst digital camera I have ever used.  The pic quality is fine.  The ease of use is fine.  The problem lies in the battery longevity.  Maybe that is not even the right description.  I will put in new batteries and only use my camera for a short time.  The next time I go to use the camera it is not at all uncommon for it to not turn on.  Even though it has new batteries and was not left on, the batteries are dead.  It happens with the rechargeable as well as re

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

When I put the camera on I can see the pics I have stored on the camera although I have to scroll through a black screen for 3 or 4 clicks first. When I switch it to take a picture I just have a black screen with some of the menu showing. I reluctantly recharged the batteries even though I didn't have the battery low warning and it hasn't helped. Can you help please? I also did a reset to default by holding the menu button.

Put a new fully charged battery in - the camera would lasted for a couple of minutes and then would not switch on. The battery works fine in an identical camera. Put in a second battery - that worked for a bit then started flashing battery problem and wouldn't switch on. 5 minutes later - it did switch on - lasted for a short time and then started flashing ERR 99, and then wouldn't switch on again. Battery works fine in an identical camera. 10 minutes later - started working again, but the Sigma
