Having problems with your GE G3 WP Digital Camera ?

My 7 year old forced the battery in backwards. I was able to extract it without damaging the camera physically, but now it won't power on. Is there anyway to do a factory reset or is it just shorted out? It's brand new :-(

NO Power My Camera won't power on. It used to work just fine. It still looks brand new. I have tried new batteries & using DC plug with no use. Is there a reset button that I don't know about? I am afraid to take it in for repair because the charges will most likely will not make sense for me to keep this one. Any real suggestions?

My Canon S2IS has served me perfectly for over five years. All of a sudden it is going through a set of new batteries in half an hour. A few pictures and short video clips after installing brand new Duracells I was getting the low battery warning and then a few more minutes of same it was dead, showing the change batteries message. Any ideas or is it time to retire this baby? Also, when I power up the camera, the lens makes a grinding noise while it is extending. What's up with that? Could it

My Pentax Optio M4 suddenly started to shut down and power off after starting up. It starts up normally, then gives 3 short beeps, then shuts down as if I had just switched it off. I have recharged the battery but the problem still remains. I cannot reset the camera to factory defaults as it doesn't stay on long enough for me to access the memu options.
