I have an olympus 'mju' 700 camera which uses li-ion 42b battery and a li-40c charger. Whenever i charge my batteries, the charging light would start flashing (which is not the sign of charging because the light should be still) and when this happens, the battery would not charge. The only way i could make my battery charge was to slot the battery in the charger whilst the power is on (usually, i slot the battery in then turn on the power). But i was using my batteries on a day out, 2 days aft

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.

DSC-W200 Frozen My W200 has the lens open (extended) and will not close. Additionally, when I press the power button or the play button on the back, the LCD lights up and says Sony, but nothing else happens. I've tried connecting it to my macbook, using a fully charged battery, memory card vs no card, etc. Nothing seems to work. If I press the power button a seond time, the green power light goes off, but the LCD still says Sony. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Not too eager to send it

Hello, I took a flash pic of a bouquet of flowers in the house, and when I went to shut it down it made 2 small 'beeps' and the telescoping lens will not retract.

When I press the power button for my Olympus FE-190 to turn the camera on nothing happens. I haven't used it for a while so I initially thought that the battery might not have any charge. When I put the battery in the charger the charging light stays on for a few minutes and then goes out. I'm wondering if the battery needs replacing. I don't use the camera very often, have had it for a few years and, stupidly, have a tendancy to leave the battery in it when the camera is not in use.
Well, are your batteries in the right slots, and put in right position? Are the batteries used? Was your camera exposed to water? These might be reasons why this is happening to you. If this isn't a very good solution, I have more details, want them? ... Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera

Lens error I keep this Elph in a tiny, padded Halliburton case because the last TWO I bought ended up with broken screens. I never had a problem, though lightly used. Last night I recharged the battery and inserted it. Immediately upon power-up, the lens went out and I got a "Lens error, restart camera" error. I turned it on and off about twenty times, left the battery out overnight: same thing. I jiggled the lens with the same result. Canon tech support told me to take the battery out a

Battery Problems Hi, I have an Casio Exilim EX-Z77 camera and the battery has totally died. I can't even turn the camera on without it beeping and turning right off. I have the usb wire to connect it to my computer, so that it can charge, but when I connect the usb wire and the camera, nothing happens. And I still have no battery power.

I have a red Samsung camera, on top it says SL35, front says 10.2megapixels, 4x zoom. It hasn't worked for a while, and now my daughter really needs it for a field trip. when we power it on, the screen starts to light up, it beeps three times, then powers down. Is there any hope for this? nothing bad has happened to it, to the best of my knowledge. We've only had it for about a year.
The camera may be having a power or lens issue. Make sure the batteries are fully charged, or use some new alkalines, if in doubt. Make sure the terminals inside the camera are clean (use a qtip and alcohol, or a pencil eraser). \015\012 ... Samsung Digital Cameras
My Canon PowerShot SD780 IS will not turn on. I purchased another battery to make sure that wasn't the problem and it isn't. I have tried pressing the power button and OK button simultaneously for a few seconds and that hasn't helped. The power light doesn't turn on, the lens doesn't open, it doesn't even beep. I desperately need help and would really appreciate any advice. Thanks, Vanessa A.

My olympus FE-280 will not turn on. I put in a fully charged battery and when I press the power button the light on the back blinks red and the lens opens and closes about four times before completely turning off. While this is happening there is a slight buzzing noise and the screen stays black the whole time. Is it a bad battery or is my camera broken?
