Battery is recharged and full but camera says to replace battery pack


Answers :

How old is the battery? It's only meant to last a couple years at most. If it's that age, time to consider a new battery. Fortunately, generic NB-4L batteries are very inexpensive these days. Here's some examples. Just make sure to read the buyer reviews as some generics are better than others.

When i turn on my camera the lens trys to come out but then it gets stuck and goes back in; the screen says "turn the power off and on again" but when i do the same thing keeps happening over and over.

There's not much you can do about the problem because the problem is inside the camera. A faulty component is probably the cause. (I think its receiving more or less that the needed amount of power so that's the error with compatibility)If stil ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

My m1033 won't read the card and only lets me take 6 pictures and then says the internal memory is full.

I removed the card and battery, and replaced them but that didn't help. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

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?

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.
