The on/off button on my vivitar T328 doesnt work

\015 The on/off button on my vivitar T328 doesnt seem to want to work all (most) of the time...when it does come on the camera works fine, but getting it to come on is the issue.\015

Answers :

Sounds like an intermittent on/off switch. It could be a dirty connection, a worn connection or even a broken connection on the switch or where it solders to the main board. Quite a simple matter to rectify if you are happy with pulling the camera apart and knowing how to fix faults but if you're not sure it could be a simple repair for the tech. Assuming what I said is the problem.
\015\012Sometimes, if it's a dirt or fluff problem remove the batteries and carefully but swiftly switch the camera on and off. Do this about a dozen times and put back your batteries. Now try and if your luck is in the camera will switch on. By doing this it's possible to remove and clean the contacts. If the switch is actually faulty it 's possible to worsen the problem and be unable to switch the camera on again (until the switch is replaced)
\015\012The gamble is yours. A hard decision to make but if it works you've saved some money and if it doesn't it's still going to cost you money as if you took it to the tech in the first place.
\015\012
\015\012Now if the switch is a simple push button type it's very likely the spiral connection is dirty or the pad which makes contact with it is dirty. In this case aagain with the batteries removed you can do much the same as before but in an inward direction. These switches are notorious for losing contact. By rapidly pushing the button on and off it can make contact reliably again. Even a slight sideways pressure can help to move the gunk or fluff. These switches can lose their carbon caps when used many times or if they age but I doubt that's the case with your camera. If the button springs back to it's normal position after pushing it's a good sign the cap is still there. Don't be scared to try again if it doesn't work the first time but don'r overdo the pressure in any direction.
\015\012So there you have something to try whatever you have as an on/off switch. I hope it works for you. If not, at least you tried.

So I just got the Fujifilm Finepix XP60 Series, it's working fine and all but whenever I press the playback button it blacks out.

First you see the little pink squares then it blacks out. I press the flash button on top for the screen to go back to taking pictures. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. Another example would be when it's off and I p
