Having problems with your Fuji FinePix Z1 Digital Camera ?

Battery doesn't fully charge. Over three years. Do I need a new battery and if so how much are they?


Answers :

I have the same problem, maybe. My Z1 worked fine for maybe 4 years, it was a rebuilt one with original battery. After much use, videos etc, I replaced the battery and even bought a charger. This has not really helped. When I slide it open I get zoom error. When I press the button to review and set format it goes off while I am in the process of setting the date. What to do? Jan 12, 2011

Sony DSC H5 runs down batteries very rapidly. Much faster than when the camera was originally purchased. A pair of new AA batteries only lasts for 12 - 24 photos. Brand new rechargeables fully charged are totally drained after sitting in the camera for a few weeks with no use. The camera is definitely OFF. This did not happen three years ago when I bought the camera, it started in the last 6 months. I can't go on like this!

Battery Problems CANON A80 Battery Problems Have had a CANON A80 for nearly three years. The first two years were great. The batteries would last for ages between charges, and with a new baby we took lots of photos. Then the batteries started playing up. Fully charged batteries would only last a few days, or if left would not power up at all. Have replaced the batteries, and the chargers with no improvement.

Battery issue Hi, I've owned this camera for about 1 year. In the last couple of months the red battery icon will flash and the camera will shut down thinking it has dead batteries. The problem is, we may put in brand new batteries or fully charged re-chargable batteries and the icon is there right away. Does the mini battery inside need to replaced? If that isn't the problem then I have no idea what is wrong with thing......my last camera did the same thing (Fugi)

I'm using a Canon PowerShot A570IS, and am getting only 20 to 30 photos from fully charged Sanyo AA HR6 2000mAh batteries. I'm using the Sanyo Ni-MH quick charger that was sold along with the batteries. What do I need to do to get back to the 200 shots per battery set that was common when the camera was new -- about 3 years ago. Thank you for any pointers.

It won't turn on even with a fully charged battery. What do I do? I've owned it for at least 5 years and have three batteries and a pentax charger that turns green when a battery is charged.

I can't seem to get it to turn on now despite trying everything I know and reading the manual. Any ideas for me. Is it possible that all three batteries are too old yet appearing to char

The battery for my camera does not charge when I put it in the charger. I have had the camera and charger for about a year without any problems until now.

Brand new battery won't hold charge. Camera is three years old. I bought an extra battery when I bought the camera. They both seemed to go bad at the same time, so I recently bought two new lithium batteries, just like the originals. I'm having the same symptom--the charge lasts for only a few photos--maybe 50 without the flash.

I have had an Exilim EX-Z75 for just over a year. Suddenly I'm having trouble charging the battery. No matter how long I leave it on charge the light keeps flashing and the battery is not charged. Do I need a new battery? I don't use the camera very often but I thought the battery would work for longer. Is there a solution to this? I'm experiencing it too :(

My camera will not work even when battery is fully charged. I rubbed the contacts and it worked for 2 days. Now that doesn't work. Do I need a new battery or do I need a new camera? Also tried using rubbing alcohol and qtip on contacts.


Sounds like corrosion on the battery contacts, or oxidation. They will have to be cleaned with a stronger abrasive (fine emory cloth or 800 grit sandpaper). Sometimes a pencil eraser will do it, but keep working on it, since it sounds like your ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera

I have had the Nikon D40 for about 4 years. It has performed wonderfully and I love it. Just recently, the battery suddenly died (in one hour it went from 3 bars to one) and after several failed attempts to charge it, the camera would not allow me to take photos due to the battery needing recharging (flashing one bar). I ordered a new Nikon battery and put it in the charger when it arrived today. It registered that it was charging and after over an hour said it was completely charged. When

Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later. I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co
