Low Battery When turning the camera on, the screen often says "Low Battery", even if the batteries are brand new. The problems seems to last a few hours, then it turns on as normal. I have tried cleaning the contacts and the battery tubes, but nothing obvious seems to cause it, or solve it. Sometimes, it cuts out to "Low Battery" in the middle of taking photos, when the charge indicator on the screen has just been at full.

Battery/power-up problem Camera will not stay powered up. The "low battery" indicator shows up on the display, and then it shuts off shortly thereafter. I've tried many combinations of AA batteries to make sure it wasn't really a low battery problem. I have not used any of the batteries Sony warns against in their manual (e.g. Manganese, etc.). Any ideas before I go look for a new camera? Thanks in advance for your help. MG

Low battery I have a FinePix S9500 digital camera which is in great condition (virtually brand new) but is basically useless. Despite using the appropriate fully charged batteries, the display constantly indicates low battery. I manage to get out one or two shots and then it shuts down altogether. This is very frustrating as you cannot count on the camera working at all. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Or is there a particular brand of battery that works for this model.

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


Some of these cameras go from "low" to "no" very quickly. The electronics are more sensitive to available voltage than the mechanicals and it doesn't take full voltage to keep an led lit or to retract the lens. But the cpu shuts down. I would have ex ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

Maintaining Date/Time I've recently inherited a Fuji E510 camera. Works well enough except that it loses its date/time settings if I take the batteries out for even the shortest period of time (for example, when changing low batteries). I see no reference in the manual for the location of the "keepalive" battery cell nor can I find anyplace on the camera housing that indicates where a keepalive cell would be inserted. This leads me to believe that this camera model either has an incredibly st
