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?

No power I turned the camera on and the lens came out then the screen went blank. I thought the battery may be low even though it was recently charged, so I put it on the charger. The orange charge light did not come on. I removed the battery and checked it with a voltmeter and it was showing 8.4 volts. Everything points to a blown fuse or something like that. Is there a fuse in the camera? Hope you can help Neil Low

My Casio Exilim S770 won't turn on or charge in the cradle. The lights on the cradle won't even come on. I bought another battery charger and even another battery, but the camera still won't come on. When I put the charged battery in, the camera begins to heat up and even feels very warm to the touch; but will not turn on. I've taken the memory card out, checked that the battery is in correctly--but still no luck. HELP!

I'm not sure if the battery is not charging or the charger is broken because everytime I try to charge it, it charges for seconds at a time and now my camera can only take about 15 pictures even when I try charging it by constantly replacing the battery in the charger to get it to charge for a little bit.

Ist issue: how do you get the battery out? I have been using a nail file to pry it out. 2nd issue: the charger blinks green and orange whether battery is inserted or not. Battery does not seem to charge. 3rd issue: I have camera plugged in by USB. The green power light comes on but that's it. The LCD screen doesn't light up, no other buttons seem to work. Where does my issue lie? Is it the battery, the charger or the camera?

I have a Sony DSLR-300. I lost the separate battery charger and bought an AC adapter that plugs directly into the camera. When I plug it into the adapter a red light comes on for 1 second then shuts off. The camera turns on while plugged in but won't stay on when I unplug it after I've had it on charge for 30 minutes. Any suggestions? I'm not even sure if the battery charges through plugging it in directly to the outlet rather than a separate battery charger?

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.

My camera fell down in the water. I didn't put it on until such time that arrived home. My husband opened it and removed the sand from the sides of the camera. It was just basically cleaned.
