Hi, I have seen this type of problem before in my shop. It may indeed by a battery problem, the ONLY way to find out is to replace the battery, and test it again. However usually it is an internal failure, usually the Motor and or electronic driver;\015\012

I have a Canon CB-5L Battery Chargerthat has just gone Faulty. There is 230 Volts going into the charger, but there is NO DC 8.4 Volt 1.2 Ampere Output between the Plus and Minus Pins. How can I open it to have a look at it to see what is wrong? I have a reasonable knowledge of Electronic and Radio Repairs and I am sure that I could repair it after checking it with my Ohm/Volt/Amp Meter. However, it seems designed NOT TO BE OPENED for Servicing!!! Many Thanks, Brendan Kilbride.

Repair I have a Vivitar 5100/4xzoom. The battery door got broken and I sent it in for repair. They sent it back-finally,unrepaired,& said they needed my phone number so they could call me with estimate...why didn't they just send a postcard? I had to ship it back another time,another $8.00. This was in April. I have heard nothing. Today I tried to call the phone number and was told it wasn't issued.

I had the same problem and took it into the dealer who firmly taped the battery door shut to get battery contact and told me that a new door would cost more than a new camera. It worked! ... Vivitar ViviCam 5100 Digital Camera

I just purchased a new battery and new charger off ebay. The battery died and now I cannot get it to charge. I am not sure if it is the battery or the charger that has the issue but the camera will not turn on at all. Also, I am not sure how long to charge the battery for? an hour or two?

If its a new battery charge it overnight. If its an overseas or aftermarket charger make surethe battery terminals line up with the battery properly. I never recommend these aftermarketchargers because the lifespan is very short. What ... Digital Cameras

I have a Panasonic PVGS19 Mini DV Camcorder. The problem is the flip screen. Will not work when fully open. There is a picture when it is opened at about 1/4 of the way. Also, when opened and flipped over ( self portrait mode) and closed the image is upside down. Thinking it is a mechanical connection between the camera and the LCD that either need some cleaning or repair. Can I do this myself? Not cost affective to have repaired by service, I am sure. Thanks Bob http://www.fixya.com/lpregis

My olympus stylus 720 sw lens does not open fully. I can hear the motor working and sometimes it will open just partially then it will not open at all. I tried putting in a fresh battery and blowing out the area where the battery is located. Is it worth getting repaired?

... Olympus Stylus 720 SW Digital Camera

790SW Problems You mentioned you are on your third one. So do you just keep sending them back to Olympus with the receipt and they keep sending you new ones? Is the battery charger supposed to blink when it is charging? I was snorkeling with mine when it seized up and wouldn't work anymore. I was turning it on and off so that I could save battery power. I guess something got stuck in there. Then it would let me view pix, but not take pix. Then it said the battery cover was open, when it wasn't.

My Kodak Easyshare Z1275 has short battery life. sometimes even newly charged 2600 MaH batteries cause problems. Powers up, lens extends, opens screen to set time and date then powers down. Sometimes i can take a picture or two before it powers down. This is a known problem to Kodak but they want $90 to repair it. Can anyone tell me how to repair it myself. If I can't I will throw it away and use my Cannon exclusively.

Battery Problem I was given an SD9 last month and so far like it except for some battery issues. Using fresh AA's it will often give me the 'low battery' warning as soon as they are loaded.

Hi all, I have an Olympus FE-300 camera. We have had a battery issue ever since we first got it about 2 years ago. Most of the time, when we first hit the power button, the camera doesn't power up.

I have an Olympus E-510 which is just two years old. The camera went completely dead on me with no notice. I brought it to a camera repair store to see if they could find out what the problem was. We tested the battery and it was fine. I then brought it to a camera repair specialist who told me that it was the circuit board. He wouldn't repair it because he said it wouldn't be worth it. Is it worthwhile sending in to Olympus to get a quote only to have them say the same thing or should I j
