Canon eos rebel won't turn on, charged the battery, replace and it would turn on but if you turn it off it won't turn back on. Took the battery out and replaced it would turn on until you turn it off again, then it won't turn back on. What do you think?
Went through the same thing. Ended up sending it back to the Canon repair depot.

I have a Nikon Coolpix L14 and all of a sudden, when I turn it on, the lens moves in and out while making a strange noise until a "Lens Error" message comes on the screen. I tried replacing the batteries, turning it off and on, taking out the memory card, and cleaning the lens. The first time I replaced the batteries, it worked...until the next time I used it and the screen was completely blurred. Then, I had the original problem with the "Lens Error" message. I really don't think it is a conde

After recharging the battery and replacing the battery (rechargrable Li-lon), the camera turned on than would not work. I took out the battery and tried to reinsert but now I cannot put it back in. There is a metal tab in the battery compartment that protrudes stopping the battery from seating completely. The lens is fully extended as well and I cannot turn the camera on nor off. I have a EasyShare Z612.

My Finepix s5700 will not turn on even with new batteries. The last thing I did was delete some photos from the memory card. The next time I went to turn it on I thought the batteries were dead and so I replaced them with new ones, but it still will not turn on. And the camera was not dropped.
A possible cause could be the "cut off" switch for the xd picture card door. Check the plastic tabs on the door for damage. If it looks ok then open and close it a few times to see if the micro switch on the board is stuck. This is a cut off switch t ... Fuji FinePix S700 Digital Camera

With our panasonic DMC-LZ5, first we got a message saying replace batteries, which we did (with new ones). Now, the screen is all white with a message saying please turn camera off and then on again. We've tried several sets of batteries, and turned it off and on again. The picture of the battery is all in white, with a line through the middle. Any ideas on how to reset?

No matter what I do, my camera keeps giving me a "Battery Depleted" message whenever I try to turn it on. It's a Pentax Optio E40, and I've only had it a couple of weeks. It was working fine, but then one day when I tried to turn it on, I got this error. I replaced the batteries, but the error still came. I've checked the orientation of the batteries, tried re-inserting them, etc, but nothing seems to work. Please help! Thank you!

I PURCHASED A KODAK DIGITAL z1085lS I took 6 shots in 24 hrs and battery was dead. The batterys are to expensive to be replacing so often,so I purchased good quality rechargable batteries but after 4 or five shots their dead also. Is therer an electrical problem with these camers or is this normal. Some times I can hear a motor turning in the camera long after it has been turned of. Hope you can help thanks chris

The battery is run down every time I come to use the camera. So it seems to bleed out power even when turned off. I have replaced the original battery and the new battery also runs out while sitting turned off. Is this a SONY generic problem or is there some item that is "on" and draining power.
