My camera will not charge. It was purchased just short of a year ago, so here is no reason for the battery to be broken. It will not charge at all when the memory card is inserted and when it is, the charging light links four times and then stops. I last used my camera about 2 months ago and it worked fine. The battery died during the last use and I am trying to charge it for the first time since.
Hi,\015\012It almost sounds like the battery won't hold a charge anymore which means you need a new battery. Since the camera isn't quite a year old yet I'd suggest contacting Nikon and seeing if they'll do anything for you before you buy a new batte ... Nikon Coolpix S4000 Digital Camera

I purchased a Sony Mavica cd250 camera in Nov 2002. I had no problems with it until about 4 years ago. I purchased a new battery, and all was fine. Until recently, I had not used my camera for several months. I could not get the camera to hold a charge (after it was plugged in and charged, I could unplug it and it would stay on for a few minutes. When I turned it off, it would not come back on). I tried purchasing another battery from Battery Outfitters, but the battery they sold me was not comp

Hi,\015\012\015\012As the battery has been in a state of non use over a long period of time it is likely that it has failed. In addition to the fact that the battery cells will have become passive, some LiON batteries have a circuit prote ... Kodak EASYSHARE M763 Digital Camera
My panasonic lumix dmc-fx3 camera does not turn on. it was working fine one day and then the next it just stopped turning on. Screen is black, lense doesn't come out. I thought it was that i'd ran out of battery but i'd charged it not long ago, anyway i charged the battery up again and it still won't turn on. Any idea what it could be? Thank you

Hi, I have a Sony Cybershot 3MP camera. it has been working fine for just over a year. However, when i try to turn it on it says he battery is low and then switches off. Or it will work for about to minutes before blinking out without even closing the aperture and zoom lens. I have tried charging the existing batteries and i've bought new ones and madesure they a fully charged. I get the same problem... Can anyone help me, or can you tell me what's wrong with it???
Check the contacts and clean them if necessary. If that does not help, try a different BRAND of batteries and see if the issue persists. If it does, it could be a problem with the power board, which calls for servicing.. ... Digital Cameras
Fuji S700 will only work using A/C power cord. Recharged AA batteries deplete after several snaps. New rechargeable (charged) AA batteries deplete several snaps. New standard batteries may last for about five snaps. What could I do to make batteries work. It worked fine for 2 years, I have cleaned the battery anodes on the battery cover. Is there anything else I can do? Thanks, Deborah

I have Canon power shot S2 IS digital camera.I bought it around 2 years back.Now my camera is showing the sign of "change the batteries" even though the batteries are fully charged and the lens does not come out..When I tried the same batteries on other digicamera they are working fine. Very few times the camera starts working but after taking 2 or 3 pics the low battery sign appears on the screen.I use AA size NiMH Sony batteries. Can you let me know the solution to my issue.
I suggest replacing a fresh battery will most likely solve your prob, overtime rechargeable battery can drain easily, try changing with a new battery and see if it does work well, there might be insufficient current, thats why it tends to drop of vol ... Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera
Beeping This is my daughters camera she got it for christmas last year, it worked fine until a couple of months ago. When you push the power button with rechargeable batteries in it ... it starts up but then the screen flashes to Low Battery and then it starts beeping and wont stop until you take out the batteries.

Battery/Power trouble My C-770 is 2 years old and I still have the original L1-10B batterys that came with it. The camera goes through periods of non-use so has not been used excessively. When I put in a newly charged battery the battery indicator says the battery is full, but then take one picture and the light blinks empty and usually dies with the lens out and the ISO numbers still on the screen. I switch the power button into the off position but it generally takes a min before it actuall

Sloooooowww speed I LOVED my 20D the first two years I had it. Then last spring it started slowing down - I was no longer able to fire off shots like before in multi-shot mode. Then one day it wouldn't stop clicking off shots. I turned it off, took the battery out and let it sit for a bit. Then it stopped working altogether and I got an error 99. It went into the shop and Ritz Camera said they fixed it - but they didn't. It worked one hour and did the same thing. I loaded a firmware update on it

Last year, my friend & I both bought factory-reconditioned Polaroid 7.0MP digital cameras i737, supplied in original boxes, with all necessary bits. Both of us got 'Replace battery' messages, and cameras stopped working; we both gave up. A while ago, my grandson "poked around", had no trouble taking pictures, but got The Message. I've been trying again. Using Uniross NiMH batteries, 2700mAh, previously used only a little, newly recharged. Menu indicates that the camera knows that's what it's

It won't turn on! I charge it, and the camera is no more than a year old, and yet it wont turn on. However, when it's on it's base, it can connect to my computer and turn on fine! Is it the battery?! Why has it degraded after only one year? And after it's been on the base for a while, the red light of the base starts blinking.
Mine won't turn on...unless I hit the red button, then the menu button, then repeat...the red, then the menu. When the menu comes up, it wants to reset the date/time etc. I just ignore that and hit the menu button once more and it's ready to shoot. ... Casio EXILIM Card EX-S770 Digital Camera
Slow camera Thank you for the suggestions. I got the camera about 6 years ago and it worked fine. The problem started recently, over the last few months. It cannot be related to the card, or the processor. They were the same when it worked well. It is charging up very slowly. I think it is either a capacitor or a rechargable battery that lost performance over time. Do you know anything about the inside battery?
Unfortunately, the externals you use are AA's so I'm sure you've tried new ones there. \015\012The internal battery (or capacitor) is not worth attempting to replace for a camera of that age. You may end up spending more to replace the battery ... Fuji FinePix A303 Digital Camera
