Nikon Coolpix L12: Hadn't used the camera for a couple of months; removed the batteries and recharged them (Nimh), and now the camera won't turn on. Put in a couple of new alkalines and still won't turn on. Removed the memory card, and no effect. Has not been dropped or whacked.


Most likely what has happened is that some slight oxidation has occurred on the battery terminals inside your camera. Take some alcohol on a qtip and clean them thoroughly. Let it dry good, and see if that works. If it doesn't, try cleaning th ... Nikon COOLPIX L12 Digital Camera

My cybershot DSC-S730 has new NiMH batteries. The batteries can be fully charged when i put them into the camera and after a few photos I often put the camera away. When i go to use the camera the next day the battery charge is insufficient to open it. I can then them remove the batteries and put them into an older model cybershot and the old camera will work with the same batteries. Why does the new camera only work with batteries that have come directly off the charger. This is a nuisance as I

I have a Kodak EasyShare CX7300 camera...usually when my battery goes down, I put it on the dock and recharge. I live in Mississippi and my dock is in Texas at my daughter's house. I purchased new Kodak batteries that were recommended for my camera. I have put them in, however, my camera green operating light will not stay on, goes to red. Then the camera shuts off.

Canon PowerShot A495 - Brand new. Used it once and took 40 photos. It then told me to change the batteries which I did. From then on it keeps saying "change the batteries" I've used alkalines and also rechargeable NiMH, These are either new or fully recharged batteries and still I get the same message. I have also cleaned the terminals inside the camera and even those on the batteries themselves. No change. This is clearly not a battery problem. This is a camera problem and its seems I am not th

Batteries This camera has been the worst digital camera I have ever used.  The pic quality is fine.  The ease of use is fine.  The problem lies in the battery longevity.  Maybe that is not even the right description.  I will put in new batteries and only use my camera for a short time.  The next time I go to use the camera it is not at all uncommon for it to not turn on.  Even though it has new batteries and was not left on, the batteries are dead.  It happens with the rechargeable as well as re

Fuji s9000 problem, it won't turn on with the ac supply at all. The last time I used my camera I put in some rechargeable batteries (new ones) while the camera had the ac adapter connected, I was just seeing if the new batteries had charge on them or not. Well, after a while I came back to my photo booth and my camera had a white screen (lcd) and so I unplugged it at that time thinking maybe it was charging the batteries or something. Well today around a week later I am not able to turn my ca

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

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?

Olympus FE170 digital camera shows battery compartment empty with batteries in place I have the same problem. When I place fully recharged batteries in the Olympus FE 170, the camera won't power on at all. When I first did this, it would power on once and then when I went to take a picture it said the battery was too low. If I put new disposable batteries in camera it works. Camera is only 1 year old and barely used.

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

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
