Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

The batteries have been unplugged from the charger. Plugged back in but charged didn't seem to take. Any suggestions on what to try? Brother in law died and we want to sell it but trying not to have to buy 6 new batteries.


Answers :

Often batteries, if left for a time, will become so flat that they will NOT recharge. If you have done as you said, then I suspect that this is exactly what has happened. There is no real way to refresh them, you could, try placing them in a warm oven for about 10 mins, and then try a recharge, this "Old Trick" used to be a life saver in the day, but it may not work, but well worth a try. good luck. You don't have to use rechargeables, either, ordinary batteries will work just as well and they are less expensive.

Camera was dropped in water for just seconds. It won't change between modes: play, video rec, and still shot. It is constantly in still shot mode. The battery dies quickly.

Powershot A640 Could Not Be Powered On, Burnt Smell My Powershot A640 died during a picture shot, lens remaining open. I thought it may be due to the dead batteries. But after putting new batteries and pushing the on/off button, the on/off indicator blinked once then shut off by itself.

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 hit the power button and it turns green for a second but then goes out. The camera and LCD screen do nothing. So I have some sort of power problem. When I put the battery in the charger the charger light comes on for about a 10seconds but then goes out (suggesting that the battery is fully charged). Is this a battery problem (not charging or holding a charge) or a camera problem? I don't want to buy a new battery if the camera itself is dead... Thanks!

I just got a new Kodak EasyShare M893 IS camera. I got it yesterday, for Christmas. And I tryed to turn it on this morning, but it would turn on, so I read through the instruction book.
