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

The rechargeable batteries don't work in my Canon Power Shot A540, they are charged, I even checked them on my batterie checker. Says, full of charge, I put them in camera and it says "change batteries. Same happens with regular new batteries.

The batteries provide little to no power to my L20 camera. Even fresh lithium batteries will only allow a few pictures to be taken before the camera quits functioning.

Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later. I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co

My Panasonic DMC-FH1 stopped working after less than a month of use. It has been treated with care, not dropped or thrown about. It powers up, the lens automatically extends, but it cannot focus. After about 10 seconds the display reads: SYSTEM ERROR (FOCUS). I have tried recharging the battery, and leaving the camera powered down for an extended period. The owner's manual does not reference this problem. Any thoughts? Thanks you, Brian

I have a Canon PC 1309 Digital Camera, which seems to have no power. I tried new batteries - nothing. Inside the camera is a little rechargeable battery - MS614SE. This battery is rated at 3.1v, but it is comatose - just nudges the needle on the voltmeter. My question is: is the rechargeable battery bad, needs to be replaced, or is it something else - the battery is good but is simply not being recharged? Can these batteries be recharged in a Radio Shack recharger?

When I turn the power on, it beeps and says "turn the power off and on again" plus it shows a battery in the upper lefthand corner. When I turn it off and on, I get the same message. I can view stored pictures but can't take pictures. I have charged the batteries and it makes no difference. Since I have been using and recharging the same batteries since I got the camera, could it just be that I need new rechargeable batteries? I bought the camera in 2004 and love it. Is there any hope for this c

Olympus FE170 digital camera shows battery compartment empty with batteries in place I have the same problem. When I place fully recharged batteries in the Olympus FE 170, the camera won't power on at all. When I first did this, it would power on once and then when I went to take a picture it said the battery was too low. If I put new disposable batteries in camera it works. Camera is only 1 year old and barely used.
