I wonder how good your rechargeable batteries are-even these lose their ability to recharge fully after a while. Try some non rechargeable good quality batteries in it and see if it then works properly.

No Power Battery needed charging, charged it, placed in the camera as usual,s till no power. Just brought a new battery with the hope that the battery is faulty or past it's sell by...

I haven't used my Nikon Coolpix E5700 for several years now. I have moved several houses, so something may have caused my camera to stop working. However, I've attempted to turn it on several times and all the monitor shows is a "Lens Error" sign. I've taken out the battery, recharged it, and replaced it yet it still doesn't make a difference. Is there any way I can fix it without bringing it to a shop?

Samsung s500 I just bought this camera about 8 months ago, but it has never seemed to work right. It goes thru batteries like crazy. It will only take about 3 pics for every new set of batteries I put in it. I think I have spent more in batteries now han I originally did on the camera. Someone said to get rechargable batteries, this would be cost effective, however does not solve my problem of 3 pics before I would have to recharge. What can I do?

My Sigma SD9 rapidly drains battery power; and I don't mean over a short period of time, but over a few minutes. Regardless of new or fresh rechargeable batteries, the drainage is frustratingly consistent. Have had the camera quit responding regardless of 3 sets of AA rechargeables, or non-rechargeables with more than 3/4 capacity left installed within 45 minutes of my last attempt to use this camera at a Botanical garden close to where I live. Other than junk it is there a way to solve this

In May we purchased a Canon Power Shot 590IS. We love the camera, however, battery life with camera is poor at best. With new high energy digital batteries we get approxiamtely 40 - 45 pictures, with 4 differnt manufactures rechargable batteries, we get 12 - 15 pictures, before the batteries require replacement. The camera was retruned to Best Buys where we purchased it aong with an extended warranty. They keep the camera for 10 days, retruned it saying nothing was wrong. Any suggestions?

Batteries "depleted" my camera was working perfect with some rechargeable NiMh batteries i had bought, giving me about 400 shots / charge. However at one point, for no apparent reason, when i used them, they would be shown as 'depleted' by the camera after about 4-5 shots, shutting the camera down. It stayed like this so I decided to buy a set of new NiMh batteries, i bought panasonic brand. But the problem remains now, whenever i insert batteries, they will be depleted (or at least according to

Fuji s9000 problem, it won't turn on with the ac supply at all. The last time I used my camera I put in some rechargeable batteries (new ones) while the camera had the ac adapter connected, I was just seeing if the new batteries had charge on them or not. Well, after a while I came back to my photo booth and my camera had a white screen (lcd) and so I unplugged it at that time thinking maybe it was charging the batteries or something. Well today around a week later I am not able to turn my ca

I own a Canon EOS Rebel Xsi. I have recharged the battery and put it in the camera. However, the camera won't turn on. Shortly before having this problem, I seem to recall a message in red letters on the display that said something to the effect that my battery pack was bad. I have a sinking feeling that my battery is good, but there is something wrong with my camera. Can you recommend what I should do?


You can buy a new battery for around five pounds ($8). I found some straight away on Amazon. It has to be worth getting one just to see if it actually is your battery that's bad. Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

I have a Fuji Finepix F45 camera. After taking a photo the screen shows a badly blurred image. Same applies if I load the memory card into my PC. The image has wavy lines. I have tried recharging the l-ion battery. replacing the battery with a new charged battery, & replacing the XD card to no avail. I suspect that the charger may be defective. However the camera does show the battery as being fully charged. After spending £25 on a new battery I am reluctant to spend £30 on a new charger wh

I have a Fuji S1000FP and for the most part it takes great photos EXCEPT when I take pictures into the sun then my photos are either white or black and no image. I will admit I just want a point and shoot camera because I don't understand shutter speed and such. However, I have attempted to change the shutter speeds and still nothing. I have tried all the pre settings as well. (This camera claims to be one of the better outdoor cameras. ) Can anyone offer words of wisdom on this. Ruth

From the start, the camera has been very heavy on batteries, both rechargaeble and non-rechargeable. I am told that this camera is known to have a fault. Is this so? As per my previous mail, when switching on I can access old photos, the shutter button does not depress, the screen goes blank and the camera switches off. I have changed batteries many times. Sometimes doing so gives me three or four more shots before it switches off again.

Lens error When I first power on my camera, it tells me to retry power on. When I do, it says lens error and shuts down. The lens will extend and then close before the power shuts off, however it does not close fully. The protective shutter on the lens doesn't close completely. I have tried removing the battery and letting the camera sit for awhile hoping that the camera will reset, however this has been of no help.

My Nikon CoolPix 5700 seems confused about OFF and ON, and now I can't take a photo becase it won't stay ON long enough for me to press the shutter release. The problem appears a bit like a low-battery issue, but I have been placing totally recharged batteries (as fas as I can tell) in it (two different ones) over and over, and still the camera turns on and off at will. Any ideas? Is there a way to totally reboot the camera, like one reboots hard drives? Thank you.
