Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Camera refuses to switch on, makes bleeping sound and cuts off.

Answers :


this might be indicative of a weak battery.

In some instances even if the battery is new or fully charge, the same symptoms would be exhibited. If this is the case, it is probable that the battery contacts needs a bit of cleaning/scraping. Additionally, it may require slightly bending the said camera's battery contacts to ensuire a bit more pressure towards the battery.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
