Before doing anything else be sure the battery is actually capable of holding a charge. Worn out batteries charge very quickly in the charger. A healthy battery will take several hours to charge.

When a "charged" worn out battery is put into the camera battery voltage drops instantly when the camera tries to start from it - nothing happens in this case.

    Assuming a healthy battery able to hold a charge - check the battery contacts for obstructions as well as the battery contacts in the camera.

    When both contact rows seem ok and the camera remains lifeless without a single movement or faint sound - most likely its an electronics issue on the printed circuit board of the camera. In this case someone with experience in opening this type of camera might discover a clue why the camera won't start.

I have a GC-XA2BU and the camera will not cut on? I have purchased a replacement battery but neither work.


As soon as you connect a camera to a computer, it will stop working, because the USB connection will be used to charge the battery.
If your computer is not correct wired on the USB port, or when you are using a hub, without an external power supply, the battery will not be charged. So you end up with an empty battery and a camera that does not respond.
Try charging the battery on an external charger and remove the USB cable, before switching on the camera. Also check if the USB connector on the camera is free. Avoiding the camera to "think" there is still a USB cable connected.

Lens error it wil not come out and camera wil not caome on. I cant even upload my pics on to the computer.


If you've recently dropped the camera you may have lens damage that will require professional repair. But if the lens is OK, your problem may be due to a buildup of corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera preventing full battery power from flowing into the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during the cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinsert them into the camera. This cures the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Nikon CoolPix P80 Transfer software does not activate.


I had a similar problem. I uploaded my Nikon transfer program with no problem, and first time had no problem loading photos. Second time the transfer prompter did not come up on the screen. My manual said something about having a fully charged battery. I tried re-charging my camera battery, and tried again. It worked! The program came up and my photos uploaded.

1994 Nissan Pathfinder won't start, even jumping it.


I had a similar problem w/ my 94 Pathfinder. The problem was a cheap security system that was offered in that year model and the wiring between the ignition and the starter was run through this system. The dealership was able to by pass the security system and this fixed the problem. For years other mechanics told me it was the starter but I knew it was something else.
