Answers :

The battery terminals are dirty.
When camera does not operate with a brand-new alkaline battery (for cameras that use AA-size batteries) or with a fully charged rechargeable battery, the terminals may be dirty.
Polish the terminals with a dry cloth and make sure the terminals are clean. If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause poor contact and power may not be fully supplied to the camera.
Also, polish the battery charger terminals with a dry cloth before charging the battery. If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause poor contact and the battery may not be fully charged.

My Casio Exilim S770 won't turn on or charge in the cradle. The lights on the cradle won't even come on. I bought another battery charger and even another battery, but the camera still won't come on.

I've taken the memory card out, checked that the battery is in correctly--but still no luck. HELP!

So I took the family to Luray Caverns in Virginia last week, and took lots of pictures of my wife and kids in the caverns. As my six year old leaned over the "fried eggs" formation, my Canon A570is beeped. The screen showed the battery was running low, and then the dreaded "memory card error" came up. Are all my pics lost, or is there a way to recover them. I'm using rechargeable batteries, and have not checked the CR1220 internal battery. I'm also using a 4 year old class 2 - 2Gb SD card.


Don't worry, your lost photos that are very precious can be recovered with ease. I would like to introduce you a very good data Recovery software, called tenorshare data recovery which can be used to recover images from SD card and from other storage ... Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

I have a Jazz HDV178. It was working just fine until recently when it went dead. I thought the battery was dead, but I checked it with a voltmeter and it does show there is about 3.5 volts on the battery. But the darn camera will not come on any more. I have tried recharging it, etc., but with no luck. Any ideas?....such as press three buttons and hold your breath while twirling 3 times and clicking your heals together>


You can try twirling around and clicking your heels together , but other than cheering you up a bit , I don't think it will do you any good. Nevertheless , here are some productive things for you to try :) .If you have another camera with ... Digital Cameras

No image on LCD screen, only irregular lines of varied coloring. When picture is snapped, it is of these lines--no image. Help. Details: I turned the camera to shooting mode but it does not display the image of what I want to shoot, but just a series of horizontal lines. If I take the shot, it shows the lines which were displayed on the LCD screen. If switched to playback mode, previously shot images show up fine. I checked the batteries; they were fine.

The re-chargeable battery in my M1063 Kodak Easyshare camera went completely flat, because I forgot to check the battery level. When I recharged the battery, the date now shows January 2008 instead of the current date, so all recently taken photos have the wrong date on them. I have checked the help menu and read the manual, but no instructions on how to correct the date.
