Very short battery life - Digital Cameras
That's my problem also before. so when i asked their customer service they told me that i should use a rechargeable battery that is AA 2450 mAh because my old rechargeable batts are only 1800mAh and it's too low.. and after trying it.. it now works well and my battery life is longer :)
For the FE-210, infamous for its odd battery problems, insert 2 LI batteries, set quality to sq2, DONE, or i was lucky

A lot of times, I put new fresh batteries in the Samsung S630 and the battery life indicator on the camera display shows the battery is getting low (one bar left). Is there a recall? Is there a fix?

Hi, I have a Finepix A600, it has a very short battery life using NiMh batteries. While it was under warranty it had a software upgrade to improve the battery threshold tolerance of the camera. This made some improvement, but the battery life is still short. The NiMh batteries are fine. Is there anything that can be done. Thanks

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

Battery Life My HP Photosmart 635 Digital camera has never operated properly since I got it. The problem is battery life. When I install new alkaline batteries or fully charged nicads, the batties die after 5 minutes wether the camera is on or off. I now use it as a paper weight.
This is a typical problem with these cameras. The culprit is a failed onboard battery. The battery is for retaining the time and date while replacing the removable batteries. If you put batteries in and set the time and date- then remove the batt ... HP Photosmart 635 Digital Camera
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?
We are having great success selling our customers the Energizer Lithium AA batteries. They are a little more expensive initially, but the end cost is much lower than alkaline cells. They usually give about 7 times more shots than alkalines. There's a ... Canon Digital Cameras
Battery life When I first had this camera, about 3 years ago, the rechargeable batteries I bought seemed to last for ages. But more recently the "low battery warning" has been coming on very shortly after inserting freshly charged batteries. I have tried using ordinary batteries (high powered) but even with these I can only take a few pictures before the warning light comes on. Once the light is on, the camera goes dead after a few more pictures so it's not giving me a false "low battery" warnin

I have a digital camera type HP945 which has lately given me trouble. Recentlyy, it was stored away for short period whilst it was not in use. Unfortunately, the four AA batteries were left in it during this time. As a consequence, corrosion of the batteries occurred. I have done my best to clean the terminals in the camera and I have replaced the batteries. However, when I now close the battery compartment, I am confronted with the red timer light coming on either at flashing intervals or c

Olympus x-840 digital camera. Hi, there is a problem with the battery life; fully charged batteries seem to be exhausted after only a dozen or so pictures. The battery indicator plunging from a full set of greens to a single red and then the camera refusing to turn on. Then after taking the batteries out and re-inserting them everything seems fine again for the next few shots - and then the same cycle of events plays out again...
The best solution is to buy NiMh batteries 2300 mA or greater 2500 mA to 2700 mA and so I have no more problems with this excellent Olympus x 840 camera. In Belgium i have payed a little more than 50 euro for the batteries and the charger. ... Digital Cameras

Built-in Battery I have a Dimage Z10 digital camera and it would appear that the 'built-in long-life battery' has now run out as my settings are no longer held when the camera is switched off. The manual suggests that the camera needs to go to a Konica Minolta service facility - as it is about four years and outside the warranty period is this something that I can do myself - if so how would I go about it?

Battery life My fuji Finepix s3000 does not work for more than a few minutes running time on fresh batteries. I just bought new batteries/charger to confirm this. Is there some kind of short circuit within the camera? Is this a known problem? I've hardly used the camera (partly due to the fact that it always has dead batteries in it).
Try buying very high quality recharable batteries. You might have low quality batteries and the camera eats the battery up quickly. ... Fuji FinePix S3000 Digital Camera
