I have a Canon G5 and am on my third set of rechargeable batteries (I bought an extra Canon rechargeable battery when I purchased the camera and then 2 Canon brand replacement batteries when the first 2 failed and then 2 off brand replacement batteries when the 2 Canon replacements would not work).

Samsung s500 I just bought this camera about 8 months ago, but it has never seemed to work right. It goes thru batteries like crazy. It will only take about 3 pics for every new set of batteries I put in it. I think I have spent more in batteries now han I originally did on the camera. Someone said to get rechargable batteries, this would be cost effective, however does not solve my problem of 3 pics before I would have to recharge. What can I do?

My Sigma SD9 rapidly drains battery power; and I don't mean over a short period of time, but over a few minutes. Regardless of new or fresh rechargeable batteries, the drainage is frustratingly consistent. Have had the camera quit responding regardless of 3 sets of AA rechargeables, or non-rechargeables with more than 3/4 capacity left installed within 45 minutes of my last attempt to use this camera at a Botanical garden close to where I live. Other than junk it is there a way to solve this

Beeping This is my daughters camera she got it for christmas last year, it worked fine until a couple of months ago. When you push the power button with rechargeable batteries in it ... it starts up but then the screen flashes to Low Battery and then it starts beeping and wont stop until you take out the batteries. We have tried other batteries and with those the camera wont even turn on. Please help me because she loves this camera and is always sneaking it into school with her.

Batteries "depleted" my camera was working perfect with some rechargeable NiMh batteries i had bought, giving me about 400 shots / charge. However at one point, for no apparent reason, when i used them, they would be shown as 'depleted' by the camera after about 4-5 shots, shutting the camera down. It stayed like this so I decided to buy a set of new NiMh batteries, i bought panasonic brand. But the problem remains now, whenever i insert batteries, they will be depleted (or at least according to

Batteries. I bought this camera from a friend. When he sold it to me he gave me rechargable batteries with it. These batteries have always worked fine until recently. When I put them into the camera, they die after about 3 pictures are taken. This happens with ANY batteries. Even if the batteries are BRAND NEW, they die. HELP!

Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later. I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P31 Digital Camera- the internal button battery will no longer hold a charge to remember the date settings and is apparently discharging the AA batteries by attempting recharge.

Monitor unlit I'm using my colleges D40 for my digital photo class. The camera was set by a prior student. I'm trying to find on the camera where the "Auto- Off Timers" is. I'm thinking the camera was set so the monitor is always off avoiding extra use of the battery. It has to be something simple and getting used to moving around the camera program. Thanks

I have a Canon Powershot A540. It literally eats batteries. I actually bought a second set of rechargable batteries because I thought the first set might be bad. I put in newly charged batteries that I know should be completely charged, take between 2-4 pictures and it will be showing that the battery is already low. My sister has the same camera and the same problem.

Polaroid i733 7.0 digital camera won't work. I usually use digital rechargeable batteries, but have also tried duracell ultra and energizer lithium batteries. The camera will sometimes turn on and the lens will come out, but that's it. Nothing will display on the screen, it just stays black. I can't even get the lens to go back in. The camera is only about 3 months old. Help! Sharon

I put new recharged batteries (Energizer ACCU rechargeable) on my BenQ DC 640 and noticed that the green light was flashing. When I went to the menu to change the mode, the left navigator key wasn't working. I tried with some old regular batteries and it was in the same state. Is it possible that this batteries damaged my camera? Thank you!
No, the batteries cannot make such problems. The problem may be with the navigator key itself. Try to remove the rear cover of camera and look under the navigator buttons. You must clean the mainboard and the buttons with alcohol and carefully remov ... BenQ DC C640 Digital Camera
Camera turns on normally. But when I push to take a picture, the screen goes black and it turns itself off. Tried recharging batteries and it helped a bit. But the battery charge only lasted a very short time. This doesn't seem like the typical low-battery that I've always seen with this camera.

I have had an Pentax Optio S10 auto focus camera for about 3 years and it hasn't missed a beat. But now it will not take photos in flash mode. I have tried the usual settings as per the manual, and noticed a previous posting of the same issue. The response was to recharge the battery, which currently I am doing. The indicator on the camera's LCD however shows the battery to be almost fully charged though. Would this be the same issue? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Graham

Frozen Camera I have a Panasonic Lumix TZ3 digital camera. The last time it worked, the screen went checkered, so i turned it off. But upon turning it off, the lens of the camera stayed out like it was taking a picture. Now it won't turn on. I've tried recharging the battery, changing memory cards, no memory card, switching settings and turning the on/off switch. Is there anything to be done or I do I just need to get a new camera?
