Camera will not come on. Previously, I have not used the camera for two years. I took it out and charged several batteries. It shows that they are fully charged. But, the camera would not come on initially. When ti did, it will register fully charged. But, would on come on briefly and shut off after a minute.

Try to use it firstly with AC adaptor(VSK0617) to understand that if it is working. The original battery pack (CGA-S302A) irreversibly loses approximately 20% capacity per year. So it is normal I think. Also, high charge levels and elevated temperat ... Panasonic D-Snap SV-AV100 Digital Camera

My Panasonic DMC-TZ5 will no longer focus, especially after using zoom. It displays messages re shutting camera off and on, takes 30 seconds to turn off and sounds like a ticking clock! It is only 3 months old. This is easily the worst digital camera I have ever bought and the Internet shows many people have the same problem with this camera. it should be withdrawn!!

If you mention "ticking clock" sounds, then most probably something like a grain of sand fell into the cogs in the zoom mechanism (been taking pictures on a beach? ;). Dirt gets into the mechanism through the gaps between the zoom barrels and the cam ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 Digital Camera

I have a Polaroid t737. I plugged it into a Mac OS X to try and download pictures, and the drive never showed up. Therefore I unplugged it from the computer.

It is always a good idea to plug in these units before turning it on and turning it off before unplugging it. What can happen is something like this:When you plug in a live camera or anything else, you may get a voltage spike or some volt ... Polaroid T737 Digital Camera
