\015\012
\015\012seems like the battery its self is dying at a low percentage like the cells are dying if you get a new battery this will be 100% back to normal
\015\012 happened the same to mine but when mine got to 15%
Seem the motor is not giving proper output, is the unit is in warrenty the best idea is to return or replace it .

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


I figured out the problem. My AA battery recharger was not making good contact, so although it said the batteries were recharged, this was not the case. After fixing this and getting full recharges, the problem went away. ... Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

It won't turn on even with a fully charged battery. What do I do? I've owned it for at least 5 years and have three batteries and a pentax charger that turns green when a battery is charged. I put the batteries in correctly. Now the camera will not turn on. My wife was using it on a trip when it happened. I can't seem to get it to turn on now despite trying everything I know and reading the manual. Any ideas for me. Is it possible that all three batteries are too old yet appearing to char

Hi. My Nikon Coolpix s6000 works nice but has one problem--it tends to turn off fairly often on its own. The camera is about 2 months old and the battery is fully charged, yet when reviewing pictures or getting ready to take a picture, it will just turn off unexpectedly. Any ideas if this is common or what may be wrong?


There's nothing wrong...your camera is trying to save the battery. You can go into the menu and set the turn-off time to a longer duration. ... Nikon COOLPIX S6000 Digital Camera

Whenever I plug in my Samsung Dualview PL100 camera to charge, the arrow light flashes orange constantly and the camera doesn't charge at all. I have the adaptor to change the two pin American socket to a three pin UK socket, and the charger just isn't functioning at all. The camera is only a few months old, and has only really been used constantly for three days. It had it's initial full power up, but since then I haven't been able to charge it at all.

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

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

No Power on camera. Battery will not charge. Charger led flashes when tying to charge. Have another (older 2007) exact model camera and battery from this camera works fine within this camera. This suggests a faulty battery pack. Camera is just over 3 months old having no more than four charges. I would expect a replacement under warranty. Please contact me ASAP.

Your battery will no longer take a charge. Replace the battery with a new one. Your computer probably does not supply the power to the camera. You need a fully charged battery in the camera to view or transfer photos onto your computer. ... Casio Digital Cameras

Camera Failure I was taking pictures of my daughter on the beach last week and my camera just quit. The lens is still out. This has happened before when the battery died, but I charged the battery and it still won't work. I am pretty positive that I have an extended warranty on the camera (though it is only a few months old) but I can't find my paper work. What do I need to do?

My camera, M1063, will not turn on and the battery will not charge when I plug in the USB charging adaptor. I have only had the camera two months and it seemed to be working fine until a week ago or so. I doubt that I have taken more than a total of twenty pictures, modt of which I have deleted.

Digimax 500 My Digimax 500 camera makes 3 beeps and then it shuts down. NONE of the on-line tips work for me. Believe me, I have tried them all. Three months ago it did the very same thing. I sent it to a Samsug authed repair facility in NYC and they replaced the gear drive at no charge. It worked just fine until a week ago, but now it's out of warrenty and I can't send it back again. . It's a great camera, but I'm wondering if there's some kind of fatal design flaw in this model? Please help me

Brand new battery won't hold charge. Camera is three years old. I bought an extra battery when I bought the camera. They both seemed to go bad at the same time, so I recently bought two new lithium batteries, just like the originals. I'm having the same symptom--the charge lasts for only a few photos--maybe 50 without the flash.


If this happens even to new batteries, it may no longer be an issue with the batteries, but it can be an issue with the camera itself. check the maximum number of shots that the camera can take with the batteries per its specification. if it should p ...

After leaving my Sony DSC-T2 camera unused for only a couple of days the battery was flat. I recharged it fully but again it only lasted a day or two. I assumed the battery was dead and I purchased a new Sony NP-BD1 battery and charged it correctly. This new battery is behaving exactly the same as the old one, only holding a charge for a day or two at most. It seems the camera is draining the battery when it is switched off, or maybe the charger is faulty ??? Any ideas?? many thanks - Geoff

Can't upload pics from easyshare m340 to easyshare software. Camera is 3 months old. I have downloaded pictures once before but for some reason I can't seem to get it to work this time. I hear a sound when I plug in the camera to the computer, but nothing happens. I don't see an error message anywhere. I've only uploaded pictures one time before and I seem to remember it starting on its own once it was plugged in.

Have a Coolpix s60. Worked fine until the other day...when the camera is turned on everything works fine but the viewfinder. Instead of seeing the object it is pointed at the screen is black. All the touch controls on either side are visable and the telephoto and wide funtions work and it will take a pictre. Everything seems to work fine except that you cannot see what you are taking a photo of? The battery is fully charged.

Sony DSC H5 runs down batteries very rapidly. Much faster than when the camera was originally purchased. A pair of new AA batteries only lasts for 12 - 24 photos. Brand new rechargeables fully charged are totally drained after sitting in the camera for a few weeks with no use. The camera is definitely OFF. This did not happen three years ago when I bought the camera, it started in the last 6 months. I can't go on like this!
