Having problems with your Nikon D70s Digital Camera ?
No power help
i purchased a used d70 yesterday and it worked ok. I didn't know that the monitor on slr digitals dosn't show what you are photographing. Like a fool, i tried to restore the factory default settings and now it wont work at all. There seems to be no power but the battery was working fine and i have recharged it just to make sure.
What have i done and can it be repaired?
It cost me a fortune and cannot afford to lose it.

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit. If I use the batteries alone, I will eventually get a red blinking light at the back of the camera, indicating low battery power, hence the purchase of a power adapter. When using both power adapter and batteries, the red light on the front of the camera is illuminated. The green light on the back of the camera is blinking. The camera seems to work fine while recording video. But why won't th

Camera FX35 was working fine. In middle of taking pix in Oxford, screen suddenly refused to come back on, although optical viewfinder works and on screen viewing of taken shots works OK. Is there a power-saving feature I accidently turned on? Only have the simplified manual with me and am new to the camera. Tried my spare battery but same results. I can continue to take shots via the viewfinder and shots seem to work, but I really want the screen back -

Hi all, I have an Olympus FE-300 camera. We have had a battery issue ever since we first got it about 2 years ago. Most of the time, when we first hit the power button, the camera doesn't power up. I then pop the battery open and pop it back in and it seems to work. Then after closing it again, it seems to malfunction again. Sometimes it shows a freshly charged battery in the "red". I have bought a replacement battery, but it seems to be same exact result. This is so frustrating, I have f

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 turns on sporadically. Once on it works fine. Shut it off and try to turn back on and it doesn't. Repeated pushing of the power button maybe 30-40 times and it turns back on again. Once you get it on it Works fine. Turn off and when you want to turn it on again must push power button over and over to get it on again. This happens with brand new batteries and with rechargeable batteries that have been fully charged. Any assistance would be appreciated. Doug Clark

I have an SVP XThinn-8068 digital camera which works fine until I download photos to my computer. That seems to **** the power out of my batteries (I'm using lithium). How can I fix this problem?
Buy a card reader if you don't have one, then remove the card from the Camera to download the pictures.This way it is faster and will not use the power of the camera at all.Hope this helps. ... SVP Digital Cameras

Fuji S700 will only work using A/C power cord. Recharged AA batteries deplete after several snaps. New rechargeable (charged) AA batteries deplete several snaps. New standard batteries may last for about five snaps. What could I do to make batteries work. It worked fine for 2 years, I have cleaned the battery anodes on the battery cover. Is there anything else I can do? Thanks, Deborah

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks
You didn't say what type of batteries you are using. Best are CR-V3 lithium which should give 500 shots. 2300 mAh Ni-MH rechargeable batteries should give 200 shots. Worst are alkalines which Olympus do not recommend. Have you checked the co ... Olympus Digital Cameras
I bought my canon S5IS 2 years ago.For these 2 years it worked fine but now it is showing "Low battery problem" even when the battery is full charged.I also bought new batteries but that also in vain.I found one workaround but it seems to work for very short time. Just open the battery cover,take out all batteries and then insert ,then turn on,it MAY work for 10 sec.Please suggest what may be wrong and what to do.
Make sure that the battery terminals in your camera are clean (rub them with a pencil eraser, q-tip or micro fiber cloth). Dirty terminals can cause poor contact with your batteries, therefore, impacting there performance.Also, if you ar ... Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera
Have a Coolpix s60. Worked fine until the other day...when the camera is turned on everything works fine but the viewfinder. Instead of seeing the object it is pointed at the screen is black. All the touch controls on either side are visable and the telephoto and wide funtions work and it will take a pictre. Everything seems to work fine except that you cannot see what you are taking a photo of? The battery is fully charged.

I bought new batteries from local store (one from Walmart and one from Meijer) but both would not work in my Cybershot DSC-H55. On powering up, I get the message "For use with compatible battery only" then it shuts down. The battery that came with my camera still works fine. I thought I had bought bad batteries but I returned for exchange, and 2 replacement batteries from 2 different stores still shows the same error message. Either the stores are selling 3+ year old batteries that have gone b

I have Canon power shot S2 IS digital camera.I bought it around 2 years back.Now my camera is showing the sign of "change the batteries" even though the batteries are fully charged and the lens does not come out..When I tried the same batteries on other digicamera they are working fine. Very few times the camera starts working but after taking 2 or 3 pics the low battery sign appears on the screen.I use AA size NiMH Sony batteries. Can you let me know the solution to my issue.

My S9600 was left unused [batteries left in camera] for several months. Now it will work fine with the mains adaptor, but is completely dead when on battery power.

Ist issue: how do you get the battery out? I have been using a nail file to pry it out. 2nd issue: the charger blinks green and orange whether battery is inserted or not. Battery does not seem to charge. 3rd issue: I have camera plugged in by USB. The green power light comes on but that's it. The LCD screen doesn't light up, no other buttons seem to work. Where does my issue lie? Is it the battery, the charger or the camera?
1st- you shouldn't have to do this. Stop filing your nails and you will be able to pry the battery out with a fingernail.2cnd- I can't decide whether this is a bad battery or a fault with the charger. Either way, the battery won't charge, ... Polaroid T737 Digital Camera
I have a canon SD1100 I just purchased and after a few minutes the camera will not shut off, the power button won't work and I have to open the battery cover to turn it off. Somehow this completely drains the battery too every time even if it was just charged. Also the camera turns itself on by itself about 10 minutes after you put the battery in it and once again you can't turn it off. I got another battery and the same thing happens. Otherwise it works fine.
If this is a new camera, you should be running back to the store to return it. ... Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera
