Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera ?

My battery drains out within 15-20 pictures on the A550. What is the reason? I am using Eveready Duracell batteries. If I just remove and insert the same batteries again it takes about 5-10 pictures more. What is the issue?

Lens stuck out No display No link to computer but will charge battery. Only way to power off is remove battery. Numerous key holds when power on result in no change. View lott's on FixYa. Try gentle but firm exercise of barrel, left right with success when some inward movement felt.

I have a Samsung camera that does not use batteries but charges on a wall charger. The batter is fully charged. I was scrolling through pictures when the screen just went blank. It will not take pictures and once turned on will not go back off without removing the rechargable battery. The camera will not take pictures or anything. It plays the startup music when turned on but thats it. The camera has not been dropped or damaged.

I removed battery pack from the camera. About two months later, I put it back, and when I turned on the camera, the LCD was completely blurred, with purple vertical streaks throughout the picture. I never had a problem when I've removed the battery. Old pictures appear fine, but now when I take a picture, it comes out almost completely distorted.

I have Canon EOS 300D digital Rebel. I have had intermittent problem with the camera display screen going blank even though I put a freshly charged battery in. Usually I can take a couple pictures then the camera becomes non-responsive with a blank display screen; if I pull the battery out and re-insert it, the camera will take a few more pictures before the same things happens. Any suggestions?

Battery life When I first had this camera, about 3 years ago, the rechargeable batteries I bought seemed to last for ages. But more recently the "low battery warning" has been coming on very shortly after inserting freshly charged batteries. I have tried using ordinary batteries (high powered) but even with these I can only take a few pictures before the warning light comes on. Once the light is on, the camera goes dead after a few more pictures so it's not giving me a false "low battery" warnin

My Pentax Optio 430RS seems incapable of taking more than one photo before it freezes. Powering off retracts the lens, but then it comes out again immediately, but I'm unable to take a picture. Removing the battery and then putting it or another fully-charged one allows a picture to be taken, but then back to the beginning again.
