I can only take a few pictures on my camera before it either shuts itself off and/or won't turn on again. When I try to turn it on the red light flashes but the lens doesn't extend, and then the light goes out. It's like the batteries are dead. I've tried brand new ones, rechargeable ones, etc. It's not under warranty anymore so I'm not really sure what my options are.

Pls. use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher).\015\012\015\012If your cam use manufactors rechargeble batt.:\015\012Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery\015\012 ... Kodak EasyShare C330 Digital Camera

Battery life When I first had this camera, about 3 years ago, the rechargeable batteries I bought seemed to last for ages. But more recently the "low battery warning" has been coming on very shortly after inserting freshly charged batteries. I have tried using ordinary batteries (high powered) but even with these I can only take a few pictures before the warning light comes on. Once the light is on, the camera goes dead after a few more pictures so it's not giving me a false "low battery" warnin

The rechargeables are only meant to last a couple years maximum (pretty good that you got three out of them). Also rechargeable NiMH's have approximately 5 times the power of standard alkaline batteries. Alkaline batteries should only be used in em ... Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera

I have a Polaroid Impulse QPS and it won't turn on anymore. Usually to take photos I open the flash and a little red light comes on next to the button that you press to take a picture. In a couple seconds it turns to green and I can take the picture, but all of a sudden the light stopped going on at all. so when I press the button, nothing happens. I was thinking maybe it's a battery problem, but I can't figure out where to put batteris in the camera! I got it used, so I've never done it be

Battery failure I charge my Pentax Optio S5z battery on the charger then put it in the camera when it is fully charged (green light comes on on the charger) but the camera won't work ie. battery is dead, as i put it back in the charger and the light comes up red like it is flat again. Sometimes I just leave it in the camera and it seems to work after a few days, then may last for a day or sometimes for ages. I'm guessing the battery is stuffed but I want to check before I buy a new one. Please

The only solution for that is to buy a new battery. I had the same problem with my canon 900Ti (NB5 battery), died after less than a year. It probably exceeded it's battery cycle life... have a nice day! ... Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera

I own a polaroid t730 digital camera. I can take pictures using the existing memory in the camera. As soon as I insert a memory card the camera shuts down except for the red light in the front that comes on and the green light in the back comes on.

We have a Canon Power Shot A570 IS, purchased October 30, 2007. We have purchased new AA-size NiMH batteries for it but the problem remains. Whenever you turn it on it shows "Batteries Low" and shuts itself off. You might be able to take 1 or 2 pictures before the batteries low light comes on. I understand that lithium batteries will not work in this camera. Please advise. Thanks, Eileen

Alkaline are the only batteries to use in digital cameras such as yours. If you still get the same results with either or batteries the capacitor is giving out in the circuitry. The cost to repair this camera outweighs the cost of a new camera ... Digital Cameras

I rec'd a The Sharper Image digital photo album with keychain as a gift two years ago. I have installed the 55 pictures from my pc to the unit. This unit will only work if I keep the unit plugged into my pc or a wall adapter. It does not respond to clicking the on and off switch. No light comes on green or red, but it is always green when plugged in. I think the unit does not have a battery in it as it should. If the battery is dead, it wasn't even used.

My camera has been on a easyshare dock a very long time. One time when the dock was unplugged, I plugged it back in, and put the camera on it. It had a blinking red light, which is had never shown before. I upplugged the dock and replugged and put the camera back on. It seemed fine, but Christmas day when I wanted to take pictures with my camera, the zoom lens would not work, and then I couldn't view the pictures anymore. My husband went and bought a new battery, we put it in, and put it on t

Samsung L83T fully charged but beeps 3 times and switches off? The screen doesn't come on at all, and the low battery message does not show. Shop said it could be a circuit problem & not economically viable? What do you think? The battery is charging normally and the lead light goes green. I have removed the replaced the card. I can take pictures off the card so it seems ok. Is it time for a new one?.
