My Vivitar Vivicam 5399 is refusing to turn on. It has worked perfectly up until a couple of weeks ago, when it started to turn off at random moments, usually soon after I had turned it on. Now, it doesn't turn on at all. The batteries are brand new, and I have tried putting them in different ways round. I need it for a competition in two days time, can you help me?

I have a kodak z8121s and I have been running it with regular aa batteries but it uses them up so fast so I decided to go ahead and spend over $100 to buy the kodak lithium 3.7v rechargable battery klic8000 with a charger and guess what the battery will not work in my camera. I know that the battery is the right battery and I know that the battery works because my daughter has the same camera and it works on hers. so my question is what would cause a brand new battery not work on my camera

Low battery I have a FinePix S9500 digital camera which is in great condition (virtually brand new) but is basically useless. Despite using the appropriate fully charged batteries, the display constantly indicates low battery. I manage to get out one or two shots and then it shuts down altogether. This is very frustrating as you cannot count on the camera working at all. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Or is there a particular brand of battery that works for this model. Unfortunately,


As you have noticed, the battey is not charging completely which indicates a faulty battery. Too bad you didn't get it replaced when under warranty as they would have replaced it for you for free. ANyways you can get a replacement from here for about ... Fuji FinePix E550 Digital Camera

My camera will not work even when battery is fully charged. I rubbed the contacts and it worked for 2 days. Now that doesn't work. Do I need a new battery or do I need a new camera? Also tried using rubbing alcohol and qtip on contacts.


Sounds like corrosion on the battery contacts, or oxidation. They will have to be cleaned with a stronger abrasive (fine emory cloth or 800 grit sandpaper). Sometimes a pencil eraser will do it, but keep working on it, since it sounds like your ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera

My Kodak Z1012 is camera doesn't work. I sent it to Kodak because it had a 1 year warranty. They mailed it back and said everything was fine but it still didn't work. I researched and many people said that it was the battery and that I needed to use a specific kind of Ion battery. I bought a Kodak KLIC 8000 rechargable battery and it still doesn't work. My year warranty has passed and now I am stuck with this camera that doesn't work. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Battery problem This morning I turned on my brand new Nikon Coolpix 5400 and got nothing on the screen. pushed some buttons and still nothing. Went to turn it off and it won't. The lens stays extended and the power light is still on. I don't know if maybe the batteries are so low they can't do anything, but I was under the impression that the camera had an indicator for the batteries really needing to be recharged. The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged


Some of these cameras go from "low" to "no" very quickly. The electronics are more sensitive to available voltage than the mechanicals and it doesn't take full voltage to keep an led lit or to retract the lens. But the cpu shuts down. I would have ex ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

The battery for my camera does not charge when I put it in the charger. I have had the camera and charger for about a year without any problems until now. When I put the battery in the charger, the green light stays on and does not become yellow. I know that my battery needs to be charged because when I turn on my camera, it dies. Do I need a new charger? Or is my camera or battery not working?

My camera (DSC-T70) got wet (shame on me). When I first turned it on, it worked fine but then it threw an error that said my battery wasn't capatible. I thought maybe I fried the battery so I bought a cheap generic one and it still threw the same error. I then thought maybe I needed to use an original Sony battery. I tried one of them and it still isn't working. It will come on for a second and the screen will show but then it throws the error and turns off. Is my camera toast??..:-(
