Low Battery My canon Powershot SD10 digital camera always shows low battery even right after charging. If i take pictures, there are horizontal lines present, but not with video. I already changed the battery to a new one but same problem happens. Appreciate your help on this. Thanks, Ailene

Shuts off My camera shuts off in the middle of taking pictures. There are no low battery warning lights, new batteries (and even replaced those with new ones) but the problem is still the same. Does anyone know what the remedy might be. I love this camera and wish it would work like it like it once did. thanks.
I had the same problem. I figured out that it was being caused by loose batteries. When I would shake the camera, I could hear the batteries jiggle around and the camera would turn off. I fixed the issue by taking a stiff piece of wire; bending a lit ... Canon PowerShot A640 Digital Camera

Canon I have a fairly new 1 1/2 year old canon power shot A530. It keeps saying the batteries are low even with new ones in it. It says to change them then shuts off. If I turn it back on it may be ok for a short time then says they are low again. Any suggestions?

After power on, green light comes on. On opening the touch pad viewer orange charge light comes on and whole camera shuts down leaving orange light lit. The only way to turn off the orange light is to remove battery. Since the battery is showing more than 90 mins remaining..I doubted it ay be battery but on changing battery with new one problem exists. I think it may be to do with the connection of touch pad viewer at hinge location. If i flip open fast the touch pad viewer stays on...then on

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks

Battery/power-up problem Camera will not stay powered up. The "low battery" indicator shows up on the display, and then it shuts off shortly thereafter. I've tried many combinations of AA batteries to make sure it wasn't really a low battery problem. I have not used any of the batteries Sony warns against in their manual (e.g. Manganese, etc.). Any ideas before I go look for a new camera? Thanks in advance for your help. MG

Low battery I have a FinePix S9500 digital camera which is in great condition (virtually brand new) but is basically useless. Despite using the appropriate fully charged batteries, the display constantly indicates low battery. I manage to get out one or two shots and then it shuts down altogether. This is very frustrating as you cannot count on the camera working at all. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Or is there a particular brand of battery that works for this model.

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?

My Sony Cybershot DSC-V3 Camera refuses to accept/recognize it's own batteries. Tried new ones and battery from identical working camera, no luck.

I have a Fuji FinePix A345. It is out of warranty. I put freshly-charged batteries in, take one or two pics, then get a low batter-reading, followed by the camera shutting off power. I took batteries out, checked them on a battery tester, and they both still had a full charge (2500 mAh), but camera won't even turn on. I was just reading consumer reviews on the A345 advertising page. Apparently this model can be a real lemon. Anything I can do to fix the camera? Or do I just toss it and bu
