Camera self- diagnostic doesn't work
\015 I get a blue screen that says \015\012Camera self-diagnostic\015\012Cameria R817\015\012Firmware: 3.00.08\015\012Serial # (it lists it)\015\012\015\012Press RIGHT arrow to continue.\015\012The problem is that when I press the right arrow, nothing happens. I tried resetting the camera with a paper clip as the HP site suggested. I have power. Any ideas?\015
I had this exact problem when I had not used my camera for some time. For me the solution was to take out the flash card, and turn on the camera while pressing the flash button. This allowed me to run the self diagnostic test (which were ok by the way), and then after turning the camera off and on again it worked!
I did almost the exact same thing as Tulip79, but... The camera I'm using didn't have a memory card in it to begin with. I was getting no response from any LED, finally took these steps.
- Turned the camera off. \015\012
- Took a memory card from a different camera, and placed it in the broken one. \015\012
- Turned the camera on, pressed right several times (The card LED flashed) \015\012
- Turned the camera off, and took the memory card out. \015\012
- Turned the camera back on, and pressed right... and... it worked! :D

Olympus 770 SW waterproof etc camera doesnt work - battery appears to charge but camera does not turn on or get any charge out of the battery - did get water in it about 7 months ago screen was stuffed but then it came good and worked fine now it doesnt work at all

Hello, So i got this camera... and i left it on the dashboard for less than 10 min.. and i tried to make it work again.. But every time i try to turn on the camera.. its on for about 2 seconds and then turns off again.. What do i do? i went to the seller and he said, hes has had this problem with other cameras before.. and he told me to get a new battery, so i did! but it still doesnt work! help?
By leaving it on the dashboard, I'm assuming you mean it got hot for less than 10 minutes. It only needs to reach critical temperature for 5 seconds to cause damage. Your camera is probably literally "fried". ... Sanyo VPC-T1060 Digital Camera
