Having problems with your Kodak EASYSHARE Z1285 Digital Camera ?
My camera sometimes won't turn on. I'll be using
\015 My camera sometimes won't turn on. I'll be using it and it just stops working and the lense gets stuck out. When I try and turn it back on the blue light will flash but it won't come on. Eventually it will work again. The camera has never been dropped or exposed to anything.\015
Your fix could be as simple as cleaning the camera's battery contacts,\015\012or it could be something more serious and expensive. First try\015\012removing the batteries and cleaning the camera contacts with a small\015\012metal brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. If that doesn't fix the\015\012problem, check the Kodak\015\012Help Center by clicking on the link below. It uses a simple Q&A\015\012format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

My fujifilm finepix f480 is brand new and i've only used it about 4 times. Without any incident to start a problem, the charger stopped working and the camera wont turn on at all with the battery in it.

My D40 does not shut off properly, and sometimes turns on by itself. It seems to be getting worse, and sometimes I can only get it to turn off by putting the on/off switch in between the two settings. Also, sometimes if the camera gets left on I have trouble taking pictures the next time I go to use it (even if the battery is still charged).
Obviously something is wrong with the on-off switch. I would have it serviced. ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
