Answers :

Yes, you should be using rechargeable NiMH batteries. Alkaline batteries just don't have the power to stand up to digital cameras for more than a few pictures. Look for power ratings on the NiMH batteries of at least 2,500 mah.

Hello , I have a MOULTRIE I90 digital game camera. If I use the external DC input, do I need to remove the batteries? Will it hurt anything to leave the batteries in ? Will I need to replace them with rechargable batteries, or will it just change over and draw the power from the other source ? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Rick H.

Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON produces no visible operational indicators. Depressing "Menu" button flashes: hour glass; menu display; blank screen. Holding button down just cycles as above. Swapped lens, data card, battery, connected EH-5 power source; nothing makes any difference. Checked same lens in another D70 camera; it's OK.


I would start by looking into the memory card slot to see if you have a bent pin. You may need a small light and a magnifying glass to see them. If the pins are okay, then you can try a reset by holding down the BKT and metering buttons toget ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

Insert battery, power on, screen display yes, take picture yes [onboard memory as no SD installed for tests]. Will update if problem comes back. Gentle but firm is the key, good luck.
