My camera keeps saying my batteries are drained, even though they are brand new. I've done those with 5 pairs of batteries already and yet, it keeps saying their dead. Now it wont even take photos anymore. What's wrong with it?

My C743 keeps using up batteries. even new ones will be dead next day without even a picture being taken, I put a thin card between the battery cover and batteries and this has prevented battery drain but even lately I can not get camera to work with new batteries right after installation.

I have a relatively new camera. The battery seems to keep draining way faster than other cameras I have had. i.e. took about 70 pictures and it drained. Do I have to constantly recharge it? If it site a few weeks without usage does that drain the battery? OR do I need a new battery? I can not find my receipt for the camera.

Nikkon DS1 I have to go to an event this evening, New Year's Eve, at the Rio. I haven't had my Nikkon very long and I have had nothing but trouble with it. I'm sure its not the camera, I'm sure its me not knowing how to use it properly. I did not receive a user's manual when I purchased this camera and I can't seem to get one. I have the camera set on automatic and most of the time, it does okay. However, my shutter when I hold it down seems to take a long time and then I'm getting a blurry pict

Camera lens movement mechanism seems to be damaged, as when switched on, the camera lens does not extend out completely and the object appears blurred on the screen. Similarly when switched off, the lens does not retract back completely and it needs a manual push to put it in a little more. But even then it does not go in fully. Rest of the functions are working well. The damage is the result of an accidental body weight going on the camera, when it was in on condition.

No power I purchased a Canon 400D about a year ago and shortly afterwards the camera suddenly gave up on me. I took a couple of photos and then nothing. The battery was fully charged and the power light came on when the camera was switched on and remained on even when the camera was switched off. I was going to take the camera in to a service centre a few weeks later for repairs but when I switched the cameraon again, the problem seemed to have disappeared. Since then I have been taking photos w

Batteries This camera has been the worst digital camera I have ever used.  The pic quality is fine.  The ease of use is fine.  The problem lies in the battery longevity.  Maybe that is not even the right description.  I will put in new batteries and only use my camera for a short time.  The next time I go to use the camera it is not at all uncommon for it to not turn on.  Even though it has new batteries and was not left on, the batteries are dead.  It happens with the rechargeable as well as re

EasyShare Z712IS Purchased this camera in Aug. I love it but I can't seem to keep a charged battery in it. I bought some 2X rechargeable NI-MH batteries. Maybe they are not the right ones for the camera. Since the battery that came with the camera went dead I have tried these and they only last for about 6 - 10 pictures before needing recharging. What kind of a battery is the best performer for this camera that is rechargeable?

Your battery will no longer take a charge. Replace the battery with a new one. Your computer probably does not supply the power to the camera. You need a fully charged battery in the camera to view or transfer photos onto your computer. ... Casio Digital Cameras

My Canon PowerShot A640 shuts down a lot - It seems there is something loose in the camera. Even though I keep putting brand new batteries in the camera, it continues to just shut down again and again and again. Where can I take this camera to have it looked at?

Strange noises I bought it last week and its makes strage "clicky" noises when on. I've exchanged it twice and all 3 have made the same noises. Is this normal? They don't sound like normal camera noises and the store where I bought it listened and agreed that each camera seems to be not working properly. The clicks keeps happening even after I've turned all the noise settings to silent. It the Kodak EasyShare M341 Orchid 12.2MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom. Thank you so much!

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

We have owned a Kodak EasyShare Z1012 IS for about a year. We have had trouble keeping the rechargeable batteries charged. We have tried non-rechargeable and it makes no difference . We can now only take 2 or 3 pictures before a recharged batteries go dead. The camera just "eats" batteries and/or charges. Its getting worse as times go.

After leaving my Sony DSC-T2 camera unused for only a couple of days the battery was flat. I recharged it fully but again it only lasted a day or two. I assumed the battery was dead and I purchased a new Sony NP-BD1 battery and charged it correctly. This new battery is behaving exactly the same as the old one, only holding a charge for a day or two at most. It seems the camera is draining the battery when it is switched off, or maybe the charger is faulty ??? Any ideas?? many thanks - Geoff
