My camera with not power on, I have charged it up, can you think what it could be please?
I dont seem to be able to anything with it at all, only recharge the battery..
Have you tried a different battery in it?Rechargeable batteries do fail after 20 to 50 or so (depending upon type and circumstances) charge-discharge cycles, often enough.Try removing the batteries, and leaving the camera on a (dry, non-humid, non-dusty) shelf for overnight. Then put the batteries back in and try the camera again.How old is the camera? in months or years since you bought it.Has the camera been dropped or otherwise subjected to mechanical shock(s) in its lifetime?Has the camera been operated in or subjected to, temperatures below 32 degrees F (freezing point) or above about 100 degrees F ? Has it ever been subjected to a humidity higher than 85 % ?
Working with digital cameras & questions for nearly 7 years.
My camera is looked after, it has never been dropped and I have had the battery on charge a couple of times. The battery is a Lithium ION Battery Pack NP-70 camera is a Fujifilm Finepix F47...
By "have you tried a different battery in it", I meant a different individual battery or battery pack, rather than a different type of battery. As I said, rechargeable batteries do fail after a certain number of uses. You might need a new battery / battery pack.
Oh thank you, XXXXX XXXXX just ordered a new battery hopefully that will work..hope so. Cheers
I hope so too... as things stand it is the logical first thing to have done.Let me know what happens when you try it out, please - this case will remain open, left to itself, for a fairly long time.
Thank you Russel I will let you know how things go, fingers crossed it is as simple as that.
Very good. When you try the new battery out, let me know - in the meantime this case can rest as it is.
I put a new battery in and it still hasnt worked, unfortuanately. Thanks for your help anyway.

Thank you it is over 12 months old but dosen't get abused, I looked after it very well and now it looks like it will have to be replaced or go in for repair. My husband bought it for a birthday present for me... need to decide now thanks anyway X
