Canon SD4000 camera, when hitting the power button, the screen remains black screen, the green light blinks twice, lens zooms out, shutter opens. Screen remains black, and I do not seem to have any control at all; pressing the zoom button doesn't move lens, no notable reaction to anything. Hit the power button again, the lens zooms back into it's original position, shutter closes (occasionally does not shut completely), green light blinks twice, screen remains black. Tried turning on w/o SD card

Olympus C-4000 doesn't complete the power up cycle. It goes fine until the number of pictures taken appears on the bottom left for one second. At that point the screen is black and then everthing goes black. The motor whirs for a couple of seconds and the lense barrel stays out. No buttons have any effect. I've put in fresh batteries.

When I press the power button, the screen stays black and the lens goes in and out and then it dies. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?
First sounds like poor battery, but you've checked that of course. Other cause might be dirt between the lense's retracting parts which prevents the lense to fully extend. ... Olympus FE-340 Digital Camera
My olympus FE-280 will not turn on. I put in a fully charged battery and when I press the power button the light on the back blinks red and the lens opens and closes about four times before completely turning off.

Coolpix L18: The LCD screen is broken; just displays a large black "blob" on a white background. Would this prevent all other camera operations? When the camera is turned on, the green power light flashes, but nothing else seems to work. Camera will "beep" when shutter button is pressed, but lens never opens. Is this a LCD issue, or are there other problems as well?

Samsung L730 My camera appears to be stuck. The lens usually pops out when it is turned on. However, when I turned it off today, it remained out. I tried removing the memory card and battery. Also, it won't turn off unless I remove the battery. When it is on, the screen is black and the usual green light goes off after initially pressing the power button. Is there a way to reset it?
This camera would have to be tested more, but it sounds like a ccd or sensor problem. If this camera was made around the year 2000 or after a bit, then it could be a ccd problem common with many Sony made ccds in this period.A loose conne ... Samsung Digimax L730 Digital Camera

I have a HP camera CW450t camera and cannot turn it on with the power button on top. I know the batteries are good because I can turn on the camera with the review button and review the pictures that I have taken. When the power button is pressed the green light on the back of the camera flashes but the lens does not come out and the led screen does not come on. when you take your finger off of the on/off button the green light goes off as well.
Had the EXACT same problem with the CW450 model. I called support because I was mad and wanted it replaced. The support tech helped me through the issue. The answer is- NiMH. Alkaline batteries are unstable and not powerful enough for use with this c ... HP Digital Cameras
