The battery is fully charged, the camera flashes saying it is 'busy' but there is no flashing red light to signify the photos are downloading. After a few minutes the camera goes dead (the

When I leave the fully charged battery in the camera for about 10 days it gets completely discharged. This is the original Nikon battery.

Battery Problem When fully charged the camera will work for a few hours. It can be switched off annd back on again and will run with no little loss of charge after 8 hours or so.

My cybershot DSC-S730 has new NiMH batteries. The batteries can be fully charged when i put them into the camera and after a few photos I often put the camera away. When i go to use the camera the next day the battery charge is insufficient to open it. I can then them remove the batteries and put them into an older model cybershot and the old camera will work with the same batteries.

I hit the power button and it turns green for a second but then goes out. The camera and LCD screen do nothing. So I have some sort of power problem. When I put the battery in the charger the charger light comes on for about a 10seconds but then goes out (suggesting that the battery is fully charged). Is this a battery problem (not charging or holding a charge) or a camera problem? I don't want to buy a new battery if the camera itself is dead... Thanks!

Battery failure I charge my Pentax Optio S5z battery on the charger then put it in the camera when it is fully charged (green light comes on on the charger) but the camera won't work ie. battery is dead, as i put it back in the charger and the light comes up red like it is flat again.
