Photosmart r727 camera wont turn on. It begins to power on, then the lens wont open and it'll shut down. If I can manage to get it to stay on, the lens wont focus. I got it just 3 months ago and have barely used it. I charged it one day, and then when I went to start it was the first time this began to happen.

After power on, green light comes on. On opening the touch pad viewer orange charge light comes on and whole camera shuts down leaving orange light lit. The only way to turn off the orange light is to remove battery. Since the battery is showing more than 90 mins remaining..I doubted it ay be battery but on changing battery with new one problem exists. I think it may be to do with the connection of touch pad viewer at hinge location. If i flip open fast the touch pad viewer stays on...then on

When I push the power-on button the LCD display briefly flashes on with the "Pentax Optio" screen and then switches off. The lens is stuck half-way open, and the camera will not stay powered up. The battery is fully charged (as well as the backup battery) so that isn't the problem. Is there a "camera reset" procedure for this camera? Other ideas?


Good day,This is a common problem and sometimes can be fixed.Please see details on my tip on how to fix this error here:http://www.fix ... Pentax Optio A10 Digital Camera

I have a SVP T-100 camcorder which all of a sudden stopped working. What is happening is it keeps showing a red light indicating there is no power in the battery and when you connect to the mains it turns green but when you try switching on it goes red again and stays this way!! I have tried a new battery in it and the same thing...the fact that it wont even work from the mains indicates something wrong with the powering getting to the battery or camcorder... Please help.

HI, I have a Canon Powershot Sd 790 IS and it totally quit working on me so I took it all apart and then put it back together and now it powers on okay, and the lense opens and extends, but the image is blurry. I'm thinking there is a reset somewhere so that the camera knows when it is focused and then stays that way. Am I right or is there another problem? If I'm right, what do I have to do to reset it?

When switched on the camera tries to open the lens. It is clearly being obstructed in some way, and after three attempts closes down with the message "Please turn camera off and on again". If tapped gently sometimes the lens will open, and if the lens is caught and encouraged to stay out then ooccasionally the camera opens as normal. If the lens does stay open the camera appears to function as normal.
