Power problem My camera is dead even though it has a fully charged battery inside. You slide the cover back and nothing happens. We tried a different fully charged battery and still nothing.

The lens won't come out when sliding the lens door back, no pictures shown at the monitor when switching the viewing button to the right, no USB connection when connectiong to a P

Used Vivitar 70-200 zoom on my K200 Pentax. Nothing but aggravation since. Right now the 18-55 lens it came with is on but shutter button is stuck in down position and my flash wont pop up using the manual "up" button. When I look thru lens and push button, flashing "F" is the only thing there. Removed lens and button would move enough to "click" but would not come up. Put lens back on and nothing! Newbie in the extreme and ready to go back to my MX !!

Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON produces no visible operational indicators. Depressing "Menu" button flashes: hour glass; menu display; blank screen. Holding button down just cycles as above. Swapped lens, data card, battery, connected EH-5 power source; nothing makes any difference. Checked same lens in another D70 camera; it's OK.


I would start by looking into the memory card slot to see if you have a bent pin. You may need a small light and a magnifying glass to see them. If the pins are okay, then you can try a reset by holding down the BKT and metering buttons toget ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

Sometimes my D700 will not power up and the LCD is totally blank. After sitting stationary for a couple days, it will operate normally. The problem is intermittent.

I have a ES55 Samsung compact camera for over 1 year and it always worked fine.
