Hi,

Possible causes and how to handle them

\015\0121. The camera is not on
\015\012
\015\012Turn on the camera. (Operation procedure varies\015\012between camera models. Please refer to the camera user guide supplied\015\012with your camera.)
\015\012
\015\012
\015\0122. The rechargeable battery is not fully charged.
\015\012
\015\012Make sure the rechargeable battery is fully\015\012charged. If the battery has not been used for an extended period of\015\012time, or if it is being used for the first time, it may not be fully\015\012charged. In cases like this, fully charge the battery and then\015\012discharge it completely in the camera several times to bring the\015\012battery back to its normal performance.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012The rechargeable battery's capacity diminishes\015\012the longer the battery is used. When the battery consumption becomes\015\012quicker, the battery life may be at its end. Replace the battery with a\015\012new one.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\0123. The battery terminals are dirty.
\015\012
\015\012When camera does not operate with a brand-new\015\012alkaline battery (for cameras that use AA-size batteries) or with a\015\012fully charged rechargeable battery, the terminals may be dirty.
\015\012Polish the terminals with a dry cloth and make sure the terminals\015\012are clean. If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or\015\012similar matter, this may cause poor contact and power may not be fully\015\012supplied to the camera.
\015\012
\015\012Also, polish the battery charger terminals with a\015\012dry cloth before charging the battery. If the terminals are covered\015\012with oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause poor contact\015\012and the battery may not be fully charged.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\0124. The batteries are not installed correctly (for cameras that use AA-size batteries)
\015\012
\015\012For cameras that use AA-size batteries, multiple\015\012batteries are used in one camera. Make sure the direction of each\015\012battery matches the direction indicated on the camera. If any of the\015\012batteries are improperly inserted, the camera will not operate.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\0125. The battery cover or CF card (SD card) slot cover is not securely closed
\015\012
\015\012Most cameras have a lock mechanism on the battery\015\012cover. The camera will not turn on if the battery cover is not locked\015\012or securely closed, or if the CF card (SD card) slot cover is not\015\012securely closed. Make sure these covers are securely closed.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012If your camera does not operate after checking\015\012each of these things, or if there is any visible damage on your camera\015\012that could be the cause, please contact the nearest Service Center.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
Hi there,\012

Well there are many things that affect your camera to not working, like how old is your camera? Do you insert the recommend battery? Suddenly it stops working or it's not working from the first day when you purchase it.

if it is a old camera then first of all you try to clean the battery contacts.... and then check again.

post further comments for more help or information...

Good Luck!!

Thanks
