My FE-370 Olympus digital camera will no longer turn on. I used it to take some photos, turned it off and when I went to power it up again about 30 minutes later nothing happened. I tried fully charging the battery but that made no difference and my PC doesn't recognize it as an external hard-drive either. It seems to be completely dead. I have been able to access my memory card thru a printer and all photos are there, right up until it stopped working. It seems like a power problem. Do yo

I need some help to repair my Sony Cybershot DSC W50 camera. When you turn the camera on, it displays 'Access' for about 30 seconds, during which time the lens zooms in and out. Then it says 'Turn the power off and on again'. Nothing has happened to the camera - it has not been dropped and this fault just suddenly started. What can I do about this? I have had it just over a year. I’d be really grateful for any support! Thank you! Clare

Hi - I recently bought an iMac OS X Leopard. iPhoto works really well with my Sony camera to USB port. However for iMovie I tried linking my Sony DigitalHandycam Model DCR-PC100E to Firewire socket and nothing happens at all. Camcorder works fine in isolation and with different leads works on my old Vaio PC and to television. Can I get a "converter" or do I need to buy a camcorder that appears on Apple website as compatible ? I hope you can help. Regards

Battery problem This morning I turned on my brand new Nikon Coolpix 5400 and got nothing on the screen. pushed some buttons and still nothing. Went to turn it off and it won't. The lens stays extended and the power light is still on. I don't know if maybe the batteries are so low they can't do anything, but I was under the impression that the camera had an indicator for the batteries really needing to be recharged. The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged


Some of these cameras go from "low" to "no" very quickly. The electronics are more sensitive to available voltage than the mechanicals and it doesn't take full voltage to keep an led lit or to retract the lens. But the cpu shuts down. I would have ex ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

I have a red Samsung camera, on top it says SL35, front says 10.2megapixels, 4x zoom. It hasn't worked for a while, and now my daughter really needs it for a field trip. when we power it on, the screen starts to light up, it beeps three times, then powers down. Is there any hope for this? nothing bad has happened to it, to the best of my knowledge. We've only had it for about a year.

When I turn the power on, it beeps and says "turn the power off and on again" plus it shows a battery in the upper lefthand corner. When I turn it off and on, I get the same message. I can view stored pictures but can't take pictures. I have charged the batteries and it makes no difference. Since I have been using and recharging the same batteries since I got the camera, could it just be that I need new rechargeable batteries? I bought the camera in 2004 and love it.
