Having problems with your Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm and EF 75-300mm Lenses ?

Battery Drains My camera has recently started draining the battery. After about 10 pictures the battery is dead. We have tried other batteries with the same results. Has anyone heard of this problem before? The camera is not under warranty and the local Wolf Camera wants a minimum of $225 to send it off plus parts. Thanks.

Be sure to charge your battery at least 15 hours to get the full power out of it. The charger light doesn't always indicate the full charge. Shop around the internet for independent repair shops. Our general repair charge is half the price you mentioned.

My Kodak Z1012 is camera doesn't work. I sent it to Kodak because it had a 1 year warranty. They mailed it back and said everything was fine but it still didn't work. I researched and many people said that it was the battery and that I needed to use a specific kind of Ion battery. I bought a Kodak KLIC 8000 rechargable battery and it still doesn't work. My year warranty has passed and now I am stuck with this camera that doesn't work. Any suggestions? Thank you.

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?

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.

I have a Fuji FinePix A345. It is out of warranty. I put freshly-charged batteries in, take one or two pics, then get a low batter-reading, followed by the camera shutting off power. I took batteries out, checked them on a battery tester, and they both still had a full charge (2500 mAh), but camera won't even turn on. I was just reading consumer reviews on the A345 advertising page. Apparently this model can be a real lemon. Anything I can do to fix the camera? Or do I just toss it and bu

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.

A new battery, properly charged by me, the camera takes between 1 and 5 photos and then the camera goes dead. I was told by Canon that the battery lid on the camera was causing a short, they said 'Problem solved.' Nope, the problem is still there and i've run out of extended warranty. Please, please help.

Hi. I have a Canon G9 camera. I bought in October 8, 2007 but did not register the camera's warranty until a few days ago. Here's the problem. I dropped the camera a weeks ago...

In fact will only power on if I insert and remove the battery several times. Once I get it going, however, it powers off with the lens extended. Please tell me what my options are, s

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?

My camera just starting making clicking noises, then it would not shut properly, then back, white screen. I tried using new batteries, different batteries, cleaning the battery area but no luck.

The battery for my z33wp won't charge anymore. It has only been fully charged 3-4 times. The camera's fine because with the little bit of battery left, it still worked perfectly.

Would purchasing an alternative battery and charger be a good idea?
