Answers :

Camera will not power up with new batteries installed.First make sure the batteries are fully charged and installed properly.Looking at my Fuji A360 (takes 2 AA batteries) i see with the compartment open and batteries removed a plus + sign and a minus sign - located just inside the compartment in front of where you insert the memory card.I had to put my glasses on to see but its there.Ok,another problem could be corrosion on the battery contacts-see post for removing corrosion.All right now-could be the metal contacts are pushed down and need to be pried back up so the battery makes better contact.You'll need to fashion a piece of stiff wire(but not too big a diameter piece) into a hook and keep prying or hooking the metal contact till it bends upward (i had to put my glasses on and use a magnifying glass along with a brite light to see what i was doing).Additional tip-according to the manual use AA alkaline batteries or AA size Ni-MH rechargable batteries.Well unless you have an endless supply of regular AA batteries or you like running to the store to buy new ones,get rechargable batteries!I just charged my "old" rechargable batteries yesterday and when i turned on my camera they were already dead.I know the batteries were my old batteries because i taped a lable to the batteries to keep from mixing them up with the new ones i just bought (i keep extras so i always have charged batteries).Old rechargable batteries lose their charge faster if left in camera but are fine to use rite outa the charger,just make sure you have a new set charged up if your taking alot of pictures or won't be where you can plug the charger in (i take my charger along with me when i go somewhere-keep in camera case).Also i buy different brand of batteries so i can tell the batteries apart (which ones i've charged) if youre like me and have several devices that take AA batteries or lable them.One more quick tip-i see my brand of batteries say-Nickel Metal Hydride 2000 mah.Hope this helps someone,Gary Malcontent

Lens problem Hi. I have an Olympus FE-190 digital camera. not sure what happened, but now there is a problem with the lens. when i turn on the camera, the lens extends, retracts, several times (trying to find "home" I think). Image on the display screen is blurry. it WILL take a very blurry picture. there is a faint 'ratcheting" sound when the lens is fully extended. is there a way to 're-set" or calibrate the lens extension setting or focus? thanks very much for your assistance.

My camera fell on my floor when I was trying to film a video. Now it is stuck with the lens out, and when I try to turn it on it makes a weird noise, stops, makes it again, makes a new 'bloop' powering off noise, and that's it. I can click the little play button in the square to view my pictures and it will make noise and turn on and I can go through my settings but it will not let me switch to actual camera/video mode!

Lens problems I recently purchased a Kodak Z7590. I have only used it a couple times. My daughter set it on the couch (still on). When I sat down beside of it the camera slid down behind the cushion.

When it is turned on it sounds like it is trying to work, same when it's turned off. I tried to twist the lens as it was powering on and off to get it t

I set the date and time, take a few pictures, turn off the camera, turn it back on again and it ask for the date and time to be set again.

Camera keeps loosing the time and date settings. When turning the camera on the lens does not open, then a screen asking to set the date and time settings appears - once date reset the camera works properly. Unfortunately this seems to happen almost everytime the camera is turned off.


The problem is the internal battery that powers the storage of time and date. If the camera is unused for a while, it will discharge. You must put a freshly charge battery into the camera and leave it with the power turned off for 24 hours to charge ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 Digital Camera

I just changed them with new Duracells but when I turn the camera on it wont let me get past that initial little birdy which is the start up screen. I also just noticed that my zoom lens thinger is
