Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Just got anew charger& battery it still wont let me take picture


Answers :

Rechargeable batteries, like those in digital cameras eventually die from man factors-if you have a "batteries Plus" or Radio SHack" store near you , they are capable of checking the battery after you charge it. Notice I said they are capable- I'm not guarantying they will. You or a friend can check the voltage (which is marked on the battery) with a volt meter (if you have one)

My Canon SD950 IS camera will take about 30 seconds to take a flash picture. You have to hold down the shutter button for a long time. The flash indicator flashes on the display for quite a while and then the picture is finally taken. This seems to have happened after the battery was run down to nothing. After that, this flash problem appeared. I have got another battery but this still happens. I have reset to default settings as well . Still has problem. What is wrong?

Battery? My sister got my Sony Cybershot wet...not submerged or anything...just wet. At first I thought it was broken b/c it would not turn on but I plugged it into the wall charger and it turns on just fine and takes pictures and everything..but the second you disconnect the wall charger from the camera it turns off...no juice at all. I'm wondering if I should waste money on a battery or just buy a new camera. Any suggestions? Could it possibly just be the battery?
