Having problems with your Samsung SL35 Digital Camera ?

Green light comes on but nothing happens , cannot power off



Answers :

This is a classic systems control board failure, 'controls vital parts of the camera" the only suggestion I can offer remove the battery for 30 minutes along with the memory card to get rid of any residual charge. Next plug the battery back in and leave the card out, turn the power on to see if it will start up, and plug the memory card back in, if all as well. If there is no change it is time to consider buying a new camera.

I have a HP camera CW450t camera and cannot turn it on with the power button on top.

I have a Finepix S7000. This camera has been great for the entire time I have had it. Suddenly a day ago, I turn it on and it pretends to "Boot" up....the display comes on with the "Finepix" graphic...the lens "Moves" into position....the "Green" power light on the right grip side come on, (and stays on)....then, Nothing. When I try to turn it off and restart...nothing. The camera will not even turn "off" unless I open the battery hatch, (I put a fresh set in). Please help...I love this camera.

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.
