Having problems with your Nikon D300 Body Only Digital Camera ?

D300 dead - no power at all (with good battery).

\015 My D300 suddenly died while it was connected to my computer. \302\240At first I thought it was the battery as after recharging it worked again. \302\240But then it did it a second time (I normally download files straight from the card so not sure if this problem has been "lying in wait"). \302\240Since then (this morning) it's come and gone again twice without being connected to the computer. \302\240I've tried all the usual things including recharging the battery again, checking / cleaning battery & lens contacts, fiddling with the buttons etc. \302\240No luck. \302\240Other forums have an occasional mention of exactly the same symptoms but no answers. Of course I'm on holidays in scenic NZ so it's an unfortunate problem!\015

Canon SD1100 digital camera is completely dead. Nothing happens when I press the power button. Battery is good. Battery door switch is in good working order.

The batteries provide little to no power to my L20 camera. Even fresh lithium batteries will only allow a few pictures to be taken before the camera quits functioning. Regular AA and rechargeable AAs may allow a few pix before they too act dead. Testing these batteries shows full strength, Any ideas on how to fix? Thanks, Bernie Goode Savannah, GA

I purchased the camera in April of 2007, but have only taken about 500 pictures. Today I turned it on, and when I tried to take a picture, the message "change the batteries" came up, and it went dead. I replaced the batteries and it still will not power up. The batteries are all good.

My S9600 was left unused [batteries left in camera] for several months. Now it will work fine with the mains adaptor, but is completely dead when on battery power. Have tried new batteries [rechargeable and 'ordinary'] - camera dead; have left on mains power for a few minutes, then switched to batteries, same result. Grateful for any suggestions...

Power problem I was trying to get the Olympus working with a DC power and the rubber protector says 6.5V. I have tried with a lab power supply and the camera just flashes ones and goes dead. The battery light is flashing. I have tried everything from 5V to round 7V and but nothing seems to do it. There is no shortage on current since this is a beefy lab supply... Now the camera has gone dead and I'm afraid I have blown anything inside it since it would not start up with just batteries in the

I have a Kodak Z7590, the power ring flashes amber when I power it on. Thinking that the battery is dead, (and it was recharged) I bought a new battery, charged it, and it does the same thing.

Lens stuck out No display No link to computer but will charge battery. Only way to power off is remove battery. Numerous key holds when power on result in no change. View lott's on FixYa. Try gentle but firm exercise of barrel, left right with success when some inward movement felt. Insert battery, power on, screen display yes, take picture yes [onboard memory as no SD installed for tests]. Will update if problem comes back. Gentle but firm is the key, good luck.

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!

A Canon A570IS will power on and and everything works with external power (3.5-3.7V, 2A. 3rd party) but is dead with batteries (two fresh alkaline or NIMH AAs). I have used parts (from junk 570s) and have replaced the main board, button board, flexicable that includes on/off switch & shutter, leds, etc.. Again, lens, flash, storage, LCD, etc. work with external power, but not with batteries. I am at a loss. Any suggestions?


Since the external power works, we need to know, first off, if the battery terminals have continuity with the external power supply contacts. That will tell us an important part of this puzzle. The one hard thing about this problem, is that what ... Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

I PURCHASED A KODAK DIGITAL z1085lS I took 6 shots in 24 hrs and battery was dead. The batterys are to expensive to be replacing so often,so I purchased good quality rechargable batteries but after 4 or five shots their dead also.

Battery charger Hi all - dumb question maybe...I just purchased a second-hand Coolpix 5400 from a camera shop, with accessories but without the original box or power cord for the MH-53 battery charger. I am trying to get the battery charger to work, but to no avail. I already had a couple of figure-of-eight power cords, so I tried to use those with the charger.
