    I have had the same exact problem with my Nikon Coolpix S5 Camera and it's not even a year old. Worked just fine and now will not power on. Charged it still nothing. Took in to check battery and battery is fully charged but still will not power on. Put new battery in and still NOTHING! And can't find any support on the Nikon website or anywhere else. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas of what I can do please share.

    This is the second time I've had this issue. It powers on, but will not take a picture and all the icons will stay on screen. Have to remove battery to have the lens pop back in. I love this camera when it works. But not willing to pay another $65 to get it fixed AGAIN. Unless you can tell me how to fix it myself?

I have bought t this laptop about a weeks ago. It has been working fine. Today, I can't get the screen to come on. nothing was downloaded or opened that was out of the ordinary.

Maybe your battery has lost a charge or the computer is sleeping/in power save mode.

Plug it in to power first, wait a few minutes, then try the power button to turn it on.

Camera does not turn on

Rosa, I think the only thing you did was get out the batteries and tried to charge them and then jut put them back in the camera.
Only a few things could have gone wrong.
One or more cells could have died, during charging. It can happen, special with batteries that have a uneven use. Like once or twice a year the camera comes out the box and then the batteries are charged. Even when you don't use he camera, make it a habit to charge the batteries every few months.
Then it could be your batteries are still in good shape and fully charged, but you put in one or more calls the wrong way around.
Please check carefully if all the cells are inserted correct.
If nothing works, and you can't check the voltage of your batteries, try another set of batteries.

If you haven't used the device for a year, it is not surprising that it may not charge. The rechargeable Lithium ion battery may no longer accept a charge, especially if it was stored in a zero-charge condition. It' probably time to replace it. In the future, try to charge anything you don't plan to use for a while to 50-70% of full charge before storing it. I have destroyed a number of cordless phone batteries by letting them sit for a few weeks after a complete discharge, but luckily they are easy to replace.

TOSHIBA SATELLITE M45-S165 won't charge Battery. The power connector on the back of this laptop is losse but still powers the Laptop. I bought a new battery and the Battery light does light up on the front...

it could be possible that changing the dc jack at the back may fix the problem however it could be a faulty new battery as ive had a few copies (not original) which would work for a week or so then die or others which wouldnt work at all, i finaly splashed out on a new original battery and it hasnt let me down and i bought it over a year ago.

Hope this helps

Rear window wiper works for a few days or weeks

Check the plug is completely plugged into the motor. Maybe a bad connection in the motor itself. Also check the switch, try wiggling it when turning on.

Stopped working a few weeks ago - bought and installed new battery seemed to be working OK - now after about a week, it goes for about 15 minutes then stops...

It may need a longer charging period to bring the battery up to full charge. If you have a voltmeter, measure the battery voltage while it is being charged--it should read several volts above the rated battery voltage. If nearly equal, the charge unit may need repair or replacement. Good luck!

Keyboard works, mouse not

Are the batteries in the mouse charged?

If you are not using rechargable batteries replace the batteries with alkaline batteries, they only last about 1 month...
