Battery Life Battery Indicator shows Orange after taking 3-Videos or several images. Battery Indicator= Green good, Orange half battery life, Red nearly gone. I have replaced the Casio original batteries (2100mAh) with 2700mAh. Still the same battery life, Orange indicator after few Videos or several images. I have since purchased 2100mAh to suit the Casio charger and still the same problem. I used to get approx 150 shots. Is the camera discharging the batteries? Any Ideas?

Problem Hi, I just recently purchased a DSC-W50 camera off ebay and I google the battery type and found that this camera uses Sony NP-BG1. I bought the battery from an ebay seller and received it today. I inserted it into the battery slot and I got a message stating " for use with compatible battery only" . I charged it for 2 hours and I got the same message. has anyone had this type of thing happen? Could it be the battery or am I using the wrong battery type. Please advise. Thanks

In May we purchased a Canon Power Shot 590IS. We love the camera, however, battery life with camera is poor at best. With new high energy digital batteries we get approxiamtely 40 - 45 pictures, with 4 differnt manufactures rechargable batteries, we get 12 - 15 pictures, before the batteries require replacement. The camera was retruned to Best Buys where we purchased it aong with an extended warranty. They keep the camera for 10 days, retruned it saying nothing was wrong. Any suggestions?

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit. If I use the batteries alone, I will eventually get a red blinking light at the back of the camera, indicating low battery power, hence the purchase of a power adapter. When using both power adapter and batteries, the red light on the front of the camera is illuminated. The green light on the back of the camera is blinking. The camera seems to work fine while recording video. But why won't th

Battery life My AA 3000mah batteries don't last 30 mins before the camera switches itself off, indicating that the batteries are flat. When tested on a multimeter they read 1.24volts. The manual say I should get 300 shots using 2500mah batteries. The batteries have been discharged and charged up many times but still the same problem. I'm using Nimh type batteries that read 1.35v full charge and 1.24v when the camera shuts off. Is this a common fault with this camera ?

Hi there, i recently purchased a polaroid 600 camera from ebay and some 600 film. However, when I try to shoot, I just get blank pictures coming out (completely brown - alomst negative-type look). I'm not sure if I have loaded the film incorrectly, or if i am pressing the wrong button (there is a large green and smaller black on on the side of the camera - i have been pressing the green one), or if there is something wrong with either the camera or the film. Any advice appreciated


More than likely, the camera is ok. It sounds like the film is either expired, or the previous owner did not store the film properly, therefore it cannot be exposed properly. If you bought it off of ebay, you do not know how the previous owner took c ... Polaroid Digital Cameras

Batter Life We purchased a Samsung S630 camera from you a while ago, but have found that alkaline AA 1.5v batteries only last a few photos before they run down.

This isn't a solution but is a confirmation. Battery life in this camera is terrrible, especially with alkaline batteries. The rechargable NiMh batteries do better, but even there life is substandard. When setting up the camera on the munus, you h ... Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera

Just purchased a canon A590. on page 84 of user guide, continuous shooting is described. I'm somewhat familiar with SD cards, but Canon implies that I have to use their MSH type SD card to use the continuous shooting feature. When I look at the drive modes in my camera, I only see 4 possible modes....single pic, 10 sec delay, 2 second delay, and delay continuous. There is an icon for continuous shooting in the book, but it does not appear on my camera. Why?


I don't own an A590 but I've been handling cameras since the Kodak Instamatic days, so I'll try to help you. I checked out the Canon website for the A590. and they don't specifically state the MSH type SD card. The camera can do 1.4 fps or frames p ... Canon Digital Cameras
