If it uses AA-try a set of energizer lithium batterys as a experiment-i can pull 300-500 shots on a single set-some cameras are very strange about batterys and it's trial and error w/types-own a sony and reg batterys last 20 pics and dies-lithium have been fantastic for me

We have a CoolPix L3 that is not very old nor has it been used (and or misused); perhaps 14 months old. Serial No. 30649827. The telescoping lens has tended to get stuck in a closed position. After installing FRESH new batteries, I gently tapped the camera body against my other hand and the lens opened but continued to move in and out. Sometimes it would stay open but not at its maximum position. Furthermore a message was displayed; LENS ERROR.What do you suggest we do. Is it repairable?

Hi all, I have an Olympus FE-300 camera. We have had a battery issue ever since we first got it about 2 years ago. Most of the time, when we first hit the power button, the camera doesn't power up. I then pop the battery open and pop it back in and it seems to work. Then after closing it again, it seems to malfunction again. Sometimes it shows a freshly charged battery in the "red". I have bought a replacement battery, but it seems to be same exact result. This is so frustrating, I have f

No matter what batteries I put in (brand new of course,) the darn thing will not turn on. Sometimes the green light in the back of the camera will blink and then stop and sometimes it wont do anything at all. The camera refuses to respond to any commands. Also, the lens is partially open (not in the typical closed position it should be in when the camera is turned off).


The reason for this malfunction is in-sufficient power, try cleaning the battery connecting terminals of the camera for rust/oxidation/moisture ... Casio QV-R40 Digital Camera

Sony DSC-S500 My camera is 10 months old. It's been working perfectly up until today. When I turn it on the lens closes. When I turn it off the lens opens. When I can get the lens to open half way as soon as I push the zoom button it closes. It's kind of like the lens is stuck. I've tried replacing batteries, I wasn't sure what else to do.

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?

Camera is 5 years old, It has been working fine. Batteries had become low and when I put new batteries in the camera switches on. the , the flash open, the viewer window lights up with set time and date option. The program dial shows low battery but I have tried three different sets of batteries. I have left the camera turned on as I write this and after a few minutes the lens does extend but when I tried it again it will no extend immediately as it should.


Make sure the batteries are the correct type and voltage for your camera. Also because of the age you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside the battery compartment. If this is the case then no matter how many batteries you try they will n ... Digital Cameras

My camera turns on by itself even with the slide in front in the closed position. The screen then shows the warning that the lens cover is closed. When I open and reclose the lens cover in 10 or so seconds the camera turns itself back on and repeats with the lens cover closed warning. The only way for me to turn the camera off at this point is to remove the battery. Help!


Most likely some dirt, dust, or other particle is jamming the lens opening gears. You can try to spray some compressed air into the lens assembly, hopefully dislodging whatever is obstructing the lens cover. If this doesn't work, the camera wil ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T77 Digital Camera

Other thsn this the camera powers up normally and the LCD screen shows a white dot where light is entering through the cover I have tried changing the battery, switching the camera on and off many times, powering it from the AC adaptor and, at the suggestion of Sony, resetting the camera.

My go pro hero 3 wont switch on, wont charge and shows no red light. basically does nothing. was working 4 days ago but seemed to have short battery life. the camera is only 3 weeks old! Could it just be a lemon battery? would plugging the go pro into an i phone charger's USB wreck the battery?

If the light blinks while charging then it means that you have a faulty battery and it needs to be replaced. Usually they only last if you're lucky 12 months so I would suggest replacement of the battery and that should solve your problem. :) ... Digital Cameras

Sudden shutdown I have a Cannon A85. I was taking pictures and then it flashed E30 on the screen and went dead. The lens is still extended the lens protector is still open. I tried opening and closing the battery and CF doors, replaced the batteries and now it is just dead. The camera is about 2 years old and has been gently used.

My 2 year old son dropped the my husband's Canon G11 twice while it was open with the lens out. Now the lens won't retract or the shutter close. It gives me a 'lens error, restart camera' message and won't restart. I tried taking out the battery for a few minutes and replacing it and reopening the camera, but to no avail. I'm afraid of taking it to someone and having it opened as I know that the chances of damaging it that way are bigger. Please provide me with your soonest reply. Rania


Hi Rania. If you go with a place that knows what they're doing, the camera will be perfect again, sometimes even better as they'll service it all up at the same time. A site that a lot of people go to for help with the Canon Powershots is: ... Canon PowerShot G11 Digital Camera

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

Sony Cybershot camera will no longer take pictures. When turned on the lens keeps opening and closing and the screen says ACCESS. Then it says shut off camera. The battery is fully charged, not sure what the problem is? The camera is 2 1/2 years old, is that the life span of a digital camera?

Just have no clue as to when it will open. Very disappointing for some family gatherings I have missed out with no show on shutter.


This could be as simple as dust/sand particles or trapped within the layers of the lens or it could be a mechanical failure. Either way, it's time for a new camera. It would cost you more to have it fixed than to buy a new (better) camera outright es ... Kodak EasyShare M1033 Digital Camera
