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.

Battery Problems The Canon PowerShot A480 is sucking the life out of the batteries! I get about half a dozen shots and it says I need new batteries - I change to fully-charged ones and as soon as I put them in they are almost gone (that icon is flashing at me). I have used new rechargeble and old ones ... I've used two different rechargers ... I've tried leaving the batteries in until the red light goes out on the charger and I've also tried leaving the batteries in for a day or so past the red

Battery failure I charge my Pentax Optio S5z battery on the charger then put it in the camera when it is fully charged (green light comes on on the charger) but the camera won't work ie. battery is dead, as i put it back in the charger and the light comes up red like it is flat again. Sometimes I just leave it in the camera and it seems to work after a few days, then may last for a day or sometimes for ages. I'm guessing the battery is stuffed but I want to check before I buy a new one. Please
The only solution for that is to buy a new battery. I had the same problem with my canon 900Ti (NB5 battery), died after less than a year. It probably exceeded it's battery cycle life... have a nice day! ... Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera
I just got my camra a few days ago and i put new batteries in then 1 day later i had to put new ones in, then i take about 2 or 3 pics and my camra turns off on its own...what is wrong with it?
Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in a digital camera. Some may also have reached their shelf life, and though right out of the package may even have problems just ... Digital Cameras

Pink pictures the other day.... I was using my camera and it started showing lines through the image, the image quality was getting worse and worse. I figured needs new batteries. So I put new batteries in it and now it takes pink pictures! How strange my evergreen pictures look in fushia color! I tried and tried for a couple of weeks, I checked all the settings, even took the batteries out and restarted, but still pink! all shades of pink! Here's where it really gets odd, I got my camera
Hi all -- This is a physical problem with the way the lens is seated. I didn't figure this out myself; I was told it by a camera repair shop guy who also owned a 945 and had the same problem. Basicly, you adjust the lens, relative to the body, by d ... HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera
I think I'm going to explode if I hear one more "worn out battery" explanation for what seems to be a pretty common complaint. This is my 3rd camera...all ending up with the same problem. I've had the Canon Power Shot A570 for less than a year. Someone suggested changing the settings...but even with brand spanking new batteries, I can't even get it to last long enough to get into the settings. There is clearly a problem here that has NOTHING to do with the blasted batteries.
Sounds like you have a faulty board in the camera or it could be something as simple as a software upgrade, I know some of the Fuji Hine Pix had the same problem and it was the software. Take it back to the Canon. ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC27E Camcorder which was working great until a few days ago. my problem is its suddenly not showing my recorded tapes, I was watching footage only a few days ago from my recent holiday, the images were starting to get grey stripes across the screen, thought this was due to a low battery, put in a new one, still no images showing. Put in other prrecorded tapes they are showing nothing as well. Then I tried to record which works fine, but when I played it back its still
The gray strips usually mean the camera has dirt video heads - if it hasn't been dropped. Get a head-cleaning tape from Radio Shack or Best Buy, and run it a few times. If that doesn't do it, it'll have to be cleaned by a repair shop. Off brand ta ... Digital Cameras
Even when I change the batteries, when i tried to put on the camera by sliding the front lens cover, the usual display comes in the screen, stay for one or two secs. then went off. I can not take a photo, even i am not been able to see the stored photos. I replace the batteries with new set severel times but the problem remains.
I have the exact same problem. If you hold down your flash button as it powers on, you can run some diagnostics although with mine, it showed the CCD is not functioning. Pretty much that means you now own a paperweight. ... HP Photosmart M22 Digital Camera

Low battery Every time i rachage my batteries it shows "low battery" even thoug in other cameras its all fine (shows full). It is not a brand-new camera. One day it just turned out to work like that. What could it be? I use proper rechargable batteries for this model and i have few pairs of them so it is not a matter of batteries. Please answear immediately.

My camera will turn on and sometime it doesn't even when i put new batteries in it and i have cleaned the the battery parts and battery for good connection. I have to take the batteries out and put 'em in and it only sometime comes on. it still didn't work but even if I put new batteries in it doesn't work just takine the batteries out and put 'em back in only makes it work randomly and the battery on the negative side seems lower than the other like they're unleveled. there wasnt any corrosio
If I understood correctly ..it a 2 batteries camera ...and the reason they are not leveled is cause at one point they was wrongly inserted and forced the cover door to close...and the contact blades inside just bended in on the side of the negative . ... Kodak EasyShare C713 Digital Camera

My camera has been on a easyshare dock a very long time. One time when the dock was unplugged, I plugged it back in, and put the camera on it. It had a blinking red light, which is had never shown before. I upplugged the dock and replugged and put the camera back on. It seemed fine, but Christmas day when I wanted to take pictures with my camera, the zoom lens would not work, and then I couldn't view the pictures anymore.

Powershot A640 Could Not Be Powered On, Burnt Smell My Powershot A640 died during a picture shot, lens remaining open. I thought it may be due to the dead batteries. But after putting new batteries and pushing the on/off button, the on/off indicator blinked once then shut off by itself.

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

My i835 Polaroid digital camera eats batteries -- a new set of batteries lasts less than a minute.The camera is six months old, but has been used only one day.
Less than a minute? There is an obvious short that is draining the battery. Check the contacts in the camera to be sure there is no bridging contact between them causing the short circuit. Otherwise, e-mail a service tech at the Polaroid website with ... Polaroid i835 Digital Camera
