Internal battery has been in the camera and working for over 20 years. Figured it was about time to change it. Now nothing works. Battery is good and regular batterys are good. When putting in battery pack, the ISO # will flash.

I purchased a Sony Mavica cd250 camera in Nov 2002. I had no problems with it until about 4 years ago. I purchased a new battery, and all was fine. Until recently, I had not used my camera for several months. I could not get the camera to hold a charge (after it was plugged in and charged, I could unplug it and it would stay on for a few minutes. When I turned it off, it would not come back on). I tried purchasing another battery from Battery Outfitters, but the battery they sold me was not comp

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W5 5.1MP - purchased about four and half years ago (ancient in technology years I know) - but it's a good camera and has served me well. For about six months I've had issues with it staying powered on. Have used rechargeable batteries (the ones it came with) and same size Energizer rechargables forever (it takes double A batteries) - I thought it was the batteries I'd been using but bought a fresh pack of regular consumable double A's - Duracell and same problem - it

Bought this camera in 2004. Has given me many good years of service. But for the last few months, I have not been able to use it. When I turn it on (with good batteries), it stays on for a minute, then shuts down......saying that the batteries are depleted. Sometimes I can get 2 photos before it shuts down.

I have had two digital cameras (the first an Ixus - the present a Powershot). After a couple of years the Ixus wore out batteries in 5 minutes - and buying new ones did not help. Now the same thing is happenng to my Powershot - which uses ordinary AA-batteries. Both cameras still take very good pictures - but a retailer told me that this is what happens to digital cameras after a while. Do i really have to by a new one every 3.rd year - or have anyone any suggestions?
Rechargeable batteries lose performance when they get older. A three year lifespan is not unusual. Note that your camera does not use "normal" AA batteries. It should be using rechargeable NiMH or disposable lithium AA's only, although alkaline (e.g. ... Canon Digital Cameras
Fuji S700 will only work using A/C power cord. Recharged AA batteries deplete after several snaps. New rechargeable (charged) AA batteries deplete several snaps. New standard batteries may last for about five snaps. What could I do to make batteries work. It worked fine for 2 years, I have cleaned the battery anodes on the battery cover. Is there anything else I can do? Thanks, Deborah

My cannon a 530 says that it has a memmory card error, and it shows memmory card locked momentarally at bottom of screen, i tried to unlock with the slide on the card itself, but that did not help. i put a new memmory card in and it shows the same. i also noticed a watch type battery next to the aa batteries, could that battery be the problem ? i have never changed that battery and this camera is several years old.
No that's not likely the problem. The new card is probably the issue, especially if it is 4GB or higher. There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC c ... Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

I have a JVC Everio HDD camcorder, model number gz-mg330rex which is approx 2 years old. The camera has had little use, been well looked after and carefully stored.

Hi! I took several shots yesterday and went to upload the pix on my computer today and when I connected the camera to my computer the battery was at 100%. Then the camera completely shut off.

My Canon S2IS has served me perfectly for over five years. All of a sudden it is going through a set of new batteries in half an hour.

Any ideas or is it time to retire this baby? Also, when I power up the camera, the lens makes a grinding noise while it is extending. What's up with that? Could it

Hi. Original battery is less than a year old. Put on charger, after battery was totally dead, and charger light went to green in only 15 mins. This was after no use for a couple of months. Cleaned contacts on battery and charger, and light turned orange. Could there be a problem with charger?

I have an Olympus e510 that I bought new 2 years ago. The other day I got it out to use it and it will not turn on. I purchased a new battery, charged it, and it still will not work.

Last year I bought my mom a digital camera for christmas. It worked great for about 2-3 months. Since then it is speratic, it will turn on let you take a couple of pictures then shuts down all by itsels. If you put freshly charged batteries in the camera it will let you take 4-5 pictures tells you low batteries then shuts down. Is there any way we can return the camera to the company and receive some credit to purchase a new one for my mom? The other question is could we get it fixed?

Won't work Have a C875 for a year now, and it has been working just fine. The other day I decided to try a AC adapter on it. Well, the AC adapter I used is one of those variable voltage ones. I set the voltage for 3 volts, plugged it in, it doesn't work. O.K. I put the batteries back in, still don't work. And, to top it off, the batteries get hot. Took the camera apart and I don't see anything burned up. Lost. Any help on what the solution could be and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.
