Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare M380 Digital Camera ?

Will not turn on or charge. Will not power on when hit on/off switch. Will not charge (no blinking light) when plugged in.


Answers :

Sorry, but this indicates very strongly that your battery is completely dead. To confirm this simply wipe the terminal of your battery very well and hold the terminals of the battery to your tongue. If battery is working, you should fill a sensation in your tongue at the instance of contact, otherwise you just got the confirmation you need that your battery is dead. I mean dead, not low, but dead. Change the battery.

Samsung N3 camera not operating when power button pressed. Have tried fully charging battery (as indicated by red/amber light turning green on the charger cable), and switching camera on when plugged in and charging, but neither of these operates the camera.

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

My Kodak Easyshare M580 will not turn on. It said the battery was low so I plugged it into the wall to charge it and the light was blinking at first and then the light shut off. Now, the camera won't turn on at all. I've only had it for about a month and this is the first time I tried charging it.


The battery is probably a Li-ion battery and if the voltage gets too low, trying to charge it will lock the battery out as this is a built in safety feature to prevent the battery from charging too fast and causing a fire. You may want to try this. T ... Kodak Easyshare M580 Digital Camera

My Energizer N2120 rechargeable torch won't turn on unless I have just pulled out the recharge plug. Then it will turn off OK on the switch but won't turn on again... unless I plug the charger in and unplug it again. Maybe my torch has a fault with the clever (?) tech that turns the torch on if mains power fails during charging?

I hit the power button and it turns green for a second but then goes out. The camera and LCD screen do nothing. So I have some sort of power problem. When I put the battery in the charger the charger light comes on for about a 10seconds but then goes out (suggesting that the battery is fully charged). Is this a battery problem (not charging or holding a charge) or a camera problem? I don't want to buy a new battery if the camera itself is dead... Thanks!

Camera will not turn on my nikon coolpix s51 will not turn on fully. the green power light shows on but then it goes off after a few seconds. i have not tampered with the card but i know the battery is fully charged - tried twice recharging it. the lsd screen does not come on at all, nor does the shutter lens open at all. it is not responsive to anything at all, except a green light coming on the 'on' switch but then going off again... any ideas?

We bought our Nikon Coolpix 8100 just before Halloween. I was in the middle of taking a picture today - my finger was halfway down on the button to focus it - and the camera went black. The lens is still out and open, as if it was turned on. Pushing the power button doesn't do anything. I plugged it into the charger - the green light blinks periodically. I am unable to get the camera to turn on or off either while it is plugged in or after I unplug it.


What it might need is to remove the power source (battery) for a few seconds 20-30. The camera is a fairly new model so it should also be under warranty. If the camera doesn't begin to operated properly after reinstalling the battery you might want t ... Digital Cameras

Ist issue: how do you get the battery out? I have been using a nail file to pry it out. 2nd issue: the charger blinks green and orange whether battery is inserted or not. Battery does not seem to charge. 3rd issue: I have camera plugged in by USB. The green power light comes on but that's it. The LCD screen doesn't light up, no other buttons seem to work.

I charged the battery and when I put it in the camera and press the power button the orange light next to the play button turns on for a moment, flashes and then turns off. When I plug my camera into my computer, the display screen still works so it's not a problem with the screen.


The batteries could be used up and not holding a charge. Try some fresh alkalines and see if that works. ... Olympus FE-340 Digital Camera

Hi I have a Samsung ST550 Camera. My problem is it won't charge. It's cable has an indicator light and should turn red to indicate that it's charging and turns green when it's fully charged. However, when I plug it in (either on my pc or an electric outlet) the indicator light will only show for a quick 3-5 seconds (turns green then orange then red very quickly) then it turns off. At first I thought the light was just delayed or something but after a few minutes I checked the camera but it was c
