Sorry, did did not put in any fuse in this camera. When it does not start up, check the battery, if it still holds some charge and the contacts, both on the battery and in the camera. All contacts should be clean and shiny. Only clean with a dry cloth or cotton swabs. NO SHARP tools.

Take the batteries out and clean the contacts Those at the bottom of the battery compartment you can clean with the eraser at the end of a pencil do the same with the lid. Make sure the batteries are fresh/charged When you close and lock the compartment lid squeeze it shut then turn on- it may be a contact problem. If this fails then it will be a repair shop job There will be little more for you to do.

The S3100 uses xD Picture Cards.

If the pictures were on a memory card and you haven't done anything to the card since then, try this. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.

The time and date (and a lot more) are stored with every picture when taken, and the data remain with the picture when transferred. Just about any photo viewer should be able to show you the so-called "EXIF" data. For example, in Windows Explorer if you simply hover the mouse over a picture it will show the date/time it was taken.

If you want the date stamp to appear when you print, please refer to the documentation for whatever program you're using to print. Depending on the program and printer, you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Yes and no depending on your computer operating system. If you have a fairly new computer lets say a PC running windows XP Home or a Mac OS X then no you don't need a CD to download or view your pictures. I'm a little rusty on PC but what I would suggest is making a folder in "My Documents" and title it I uses a date and add some clue of its content. The make sure the camera is off and the computer is on. hook up your USB cable between the computer and the camera and turn on the camera. Before doing the hook up make sure the camera has sufficient power in the batteries. Once you turn the camera on the computer may look at it and flash up a banner "found new device" it may open the camera file on your desk top as an external drive and basically that's what it is. You can then open the file, click on the first picture, then select all, copy then past them in the new folder, should only take a few seconds to download. Once there the PC will have a viewer that is called "Paint" or Explorer will open them as well. If your running a Mac just make a folder and plug the camera in and turn it on, the external drive icon will appear on your desk top, open it as you would to view select copy past. OKAY now on both these PC or Mac you must eject the camera drive don't just unplug it or ether computer and the camera will get very upset with you. You need to eject the camera drive. Great little camera by the way, has a video mode but no sound

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Hello

This is more of a clarification request.

Have you made sure that the batteries you bought is the right amperage and volts?
Also, have you switched the camera into review mode, and then try switching it on?

Please be so kind to let me now, just leave a comment

Kind regards
Andrea
