Theres not much you can do other than get a new battery or a new camera.
if the camera uses disposable double or triple A batteries then they won't last very long.
especially if you use flash.

My E317 won't turn on at all. It has new batteries and still won't do anything. I've had it for a few years, and it's had this problem for over a year and a half. I'm about to buy another camera, but I wanted to make sure this one won't work before I spend money on a new one.

Camera was dropped in water for just seconds. It won't change between modes: play, video rec, and still shot. It is constantly in still shot mode. The battery dies quickly. I bought a new battery and it still dies quickly. Pictures taken have vertical lines and often are whited out. Anything I can do to fix this? Would it be better to buy another camera or have this one fixed?

Only about 9 months after buying my camera, It wouldn't turn on. I'll plug it in and the light will come on that it's charging, but when I got to turn it on, it turns on for a split second (and the zoom lense comes out) and then it turns itself right back off (and the zoom lense goes in). I thought that it needed a new battery so I bought one and it's still doing the same thing. I emailed Kodak and they said that I should just send it into them for a $60 repair fee...lame. Any suggestions?

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX5. Camera switches itself on even though it is switched off. Many occurrences of this. It has been examined and tested but nothing found wrong. Re-charged batteries run down quickly, even new ones. Comprehensive notes have been taken of the many events. In previous events, it switched itself on, then off again within seconds. This time it needed to be switched off by switching on then off switch.

I have a relatively new camera. The battery seems to keep draining way faster than other cameras I have had. i.e. took about 70 pictures and it drained. Do I have to constantly recharge it? If it site a few weeks without usage does that drain the battery? OR do I need a new battery? I can not find my receipt for the camera.

... Canon PowerShot SD300 / IXUS 40 Digital Camera

I have had two digital cameras (the first an Ixus - the present a Powershot). After a couple of years the Ixus wore out batteries in 5 minutes - and buying new ones did not help. Now the same thing is happenng to my Powershot - which uses ordinary AA-batteries. Both cameras still take very good pictures - but a retailer told me that this is what happens to digital cameras after a while.

I have had the Nikon D40 for about 4 years. It has performed wonderfully and I love it. Just recently, the battery suddenly died (in one hour it went from 3 bars to one) and after several failed attempts to charge it, the camera would not allow me to take photos due to the battery needing recharging (flashing one bar). I ordered a new Nikon battery and put it in the charger when it arrived today. It registered that it was charging and after over an hour said it was completely charged. When

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

Battery problem This morning I turned on my brand new Nikon Coolpix 5400 and got nothing on the screen. pushed some buttons and still nothing. Went to turn it off and it won't. The lens stays extended and the power light is still on. I don't know if maybe the batteries are so low they can't do anything, but I was under the impression that the camera had an indicator for the batteries really needing to be recharged. The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged
