    Hello All, I have the same problem with my STF 8300 The camera is OK in device manager, but the LED on the back never comes on, and D64Checker cannot connect to the camera to see firmware. -Neither can CCD Ops.-
    Driver64Checker is up to date
    Power adapter is same as provided w/camera
    power connector secure
    LED on back of camera is OFF
    fan is running
    camera is listed under device manager

    Hi Mattoid, a couple quick things to try:
    Replace the USB cable and see if you get a different behaviour.
    Try a second computer.
    Make sure you have downloaded and installed the SBIG Driver Checker recently - the old version didn't always know there were updates.

    Is this a new camera or new-to-you (used) ?
    Send me a Private Message with serial number, and when/where you bought it.
    It may have to go in to @Bill for service.
