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. While this is happening there is a slight buzzing noise and the screen stays black the whole time. Is it a bad battery or is my camera broken?
There are many sides to the fault but it seems that you have a serious one. The camera needs to be opend to confirm the fault and so it needs experienced hands. The possible fault could be failure of the electronics, maybe the shuter drive, the lens ... Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera
My camera has been on a easyshare dock a very long time. One time when the dock was unplugged, I plugged it back in, and put the camera on it. It had a blinking red light, which is had never shown before. I upplugged the dock and replugged and put the camera back on. It seemed fine, but Christmas day when I wanted to take pictures with my camera, the zoom lens would not work, and then I couldn't view the pictures anymore. My husband went and bought a new battery, we put it in, and put it on t

Troubleshooting. I'm currently using the EXILIM EX-Z60/Z60DX CASIO Digital Camera. I recently relocated and when I went to use my camera, I noticed the battery was almost dead. So, I took it home and put it on the charger. Usually, the red light will come on and it will charge, no problem. This time, the red light started blinking. I wasn't sure what that was so I left it on the cradle for about an hour to see if it would still charge. When I put the battery in the camera, my camera wouldn't eve

We took a few pictures the night before we went to a museum. That night we put the battery for the camera in a charger that plugs into an outlet. This batery was taken out of the camera. The next morning, I was getting out of the car and the camera, in its protective bag, and it is much larger than the camera, fell. It was about, tops, 3 feet in the air. Cushening the fall, it hit my ankle. Anyway, the camera never turned on again. The camera actually makes a noise all the time like you a
Cushioned or not, your camera likely landed on the end of its lens, dislodging it from the track it rides on to zoom, or jamming it on the track so that it cannot move, and the camera powers itself off to prevent further damage when it senses the len ... Kodak EasyShare P850 Digital Camera
I was shooting pictures with my camera at a concert. I used the zoom feture to zoom in, and it caused a zoom error in the camera. I turned the camera off to reboot it, but the lens stayed out. When I tried to turn the camera back on, the camera came on, but the screen went black. I tried taking the battery out, and put it back in some time later (maybe 30 min.-1 hr.). This did not fix the problem, and I don't know what else to do. How do I fix this?

Hi, I had a spare kodak c330 camera which was in perfect working condition. Since I am using a Nikon camera now, i thought of converting the kodak camera to an infra-red camera. so i opened it, and after a few unsuccesful attempts, I was finally able to open the lens assembly and take out the infra-red filter. however, when I was putting everything back in place(assembling), there was a big spark - one like short circuit - probably caused by the huge capacitor that is used for the flash circuit.
The capacitor has shorted the circuits i would not bother with it .....sorry ... Kodak EasyShare C330 Digital Camera
Help!! My Sony DSC-W100 isn't working. I've been sifting through the message boards and none of the solutions were working for me. Some of my friends were fiddling with my camera and the camera got left with the lens out and no battery left. So I charged the battery and put the battery back in but now the lens is expanding and retracting four times while the camera reads "access" and then "turn the camera off and then on." I've been doing this repeatedly with no avail! Is there anyway to fix it
The only thing that can be done but may not fix it is to push reset switch under battery compartment door (pinhole)..also make sure you do use fresh batteries.Use good batties not cheap batteries because these camera require good current to drive ..i ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Digital Camera

No matter what batteries I put in (brand new of course,) the darn thing will not turn on. Sometimes the green light in the back of the camera will blink and then stop and sometimes it wont do anything at all. The camera refuses to respond to any commands. Also, the lens is partially open (not in the typical closed position it should be in when the camera is turned off).
The reason for this malfunction is in-sufficient power, try cleaning the battery connecting terminals of the camera for rust/oxidation/moisture ... Casio QV-R40 Digital Camera
