When I switch to auto or manual when I want to record/ take pictures the power doesn't work. But, if I switch to play, I can reveiw videos or pictures.
Hello. I can assist you. You have a power shortfall in your camera. The power necessary to play videos and pictures is much less than the power requirement to record. There are several possible reasons for your problem. It could be as simple as ... Digital Cameras
Power/lens Problems I'm having some power/lens problems with my camera. When I turn on the power in either the picture or video mode, the green light will turn on for a split second then turn off. The lens does not come out at all. However, when I try to turn it on with the picture viewer or in the menu it works just fine. When I start with the picture viewer and then switch to the camera it turns off. Thus it seems that whenever I want to take a picture or a movie the camera doesn't work.
It seems that the lense movement is jammed. Have you dropped the camera? just have a close look from the front side of the camera, does the lense assembly seems to be pressed or moved aside by some extra preassure? if no physical disalingment is vi ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P72 Digital Camera

My camera doesn't turn on when i switch the switch. all that happens is that the flash pops up. the lens doesn't open, the display doesn't light, nothing happens. and the battery is new.
You could still have oxidized battery terminals inside the camera, or a lens issue. The following two web blogs discuss things to do to try to fix it:\015\012 ... Digital Cameras
Hi, I've never had any problems transferring photos to my laptop until now. Suddenly, nothing is happening. I switch the camera off, connect it up, switch it back on again and the 'on' light comes on but the lens doesn't come out and the laptop doesn't seem to acknowledge the camera is there. Can anyone help?
Maybe you should update or reinstall the software? Does your camera act like it's connected (like black screen, special light, no access to menus, etc. etc.)? Check if there's a problem with your cable. ... Nikon Coolpix S550 Digital Camera

The power switch won't turn to Off from the Player position. There is a tiny green button that usually releases the switch so it will turn. This tiny green button seems to move in but I'm not sure if it's going in far enough. I suspect it is broken on the inside where it releases. I don't know if I can remove the switch knob by prying it up off the switch or if you can suggest a method of fixing this. I don't want to spend a whole lot of money on the camera (digital cameras look inviting), but I

Sometimes the autofocus doesn't work. It is switched to af. When I turn the camera on it will normally focus but after 1 or a couple of pictures it will not autofocus. If I move the switch to Manual I can take the picture and then if I move the switch back to m/a it will focus and keep focusing and I can take a few few more frames then then the auto cocus stops working again and I have to switch back to M and so on. I never know when it wount work. Thank you.

I just got a Fujifilm JX 250 2 months ago and i am so in love with it. however these last few days its been going mad. it seems to be switching on on its own for no apparent reason. i switch it off again and it switches on again after some time. also when i press the back button it doesn't take the command.
Check its settings.it must have been set to auto turn on by mistake,that is why its behaving in such a way.this would solve your problem. ... FUJIFILM FinePix JX250 Digital Camera

I want a list of the likely different faults which can cause an Olympus C-5060Z not to power on. I'll do the rest. A wiring schematic would help too. I am aware of possible cause being the On/off switch under mode dial and how to replace that, and have a new mode-dial/power switch part, but while the camera is open where the switch can be function tested at ribbon cable connection, I need a check-list of the other most likely causes in the order of most likely to least likely.

The HP Photosmart M537 is a 3-year old camera that was $100 when new. Yours is defective by your own admission and you want to sell it for "top dollar" to some poor soul? In its present condition, it's worth about $3 for parts. Even if the zoom worke ... Fuji Digital Cameras
