My Fuji A700 simply eats up batteries,it has got to a point where I am only able to download 20 pictures with a BRAND NEW SET OF BATTERIES. It was as consumptive with rechargeable versions. I understand this is a common problem that makes the camera unuseable, obviously it is simply not up to the job, they are not exactly eco friendly at that rate of power consumption and subsequent disposal of the dead batteries.
Is this only a problem when downloading the pics to your computer? If so, just use a card reader instead of your camera. ... Fuji FinePix A700 Digital Camera
Battery life My AA 3000mah batteries don't last 30 mins before the camera switches itself off, indicating that the batteries are flat. When tested on a multimeter they read 1.24volts. The manual say I should get 300 shots using 2500mah batteries. The batteries have been discharged and charged up many times but still the same problem. I'm using Nimh type batteries that read 1.35v full charge and 1.24v when the camera shuts off. Is this a common fault with this camera ?

Hi , My Fuji S9600 has just refused to power-up using batteries, although it still powers-up and operates correctly when i attach the mains PSU adapter. I wonder if this is a common occurrence on this model and how easy it is to get sorted. I have used rechargeable batteries since the camera was new (approx 3 yrs) and have tested the batteries as V.good. So i'm assuming that the problem is with the camera somewhere. Do you think if i reset the camera in the menu that would cure the problem , or
A few things here may cause the problem you have First the rechargeable batteries don't hold their charge like alkaline and will drop to zero or near zero voltage in just a few weeks. They may tun on a light but won't have enough power to operate a c ... Fuji Finepix S9600 Digital Camera

Pentax Optio E30. This camera is eating through the batteries. Even when the camera is turned off the batteries are being drained. I have tried rechargeable batteries and new heavy duty batteries and even these drain within a matter of 30 minutes or so and at times it will not even work with these. Do you know what is wrong?

I have a HP Photosmart M415 digital camera 3 years old. It will not hold the charge in the rechargable batteries and also when I replace them with Duracel I can only take about 10 photos and then the camera tells me that the batteries are depleted and shuts down.I have also bought new rechargable batteries but the problem still persists.
You have to go for a rechargeable battery as duracell doesnt have enough current as the camera consumes more energy then a rechargeable battery has. go for uniross 2200 mha battery that is pretty cheap and best. ... HP Digital Cameras
Battery Life My HP Photosmart 635 Digital camera has never operated properly since I got it. The problem is battery life. When I install new alkaline batteries or fully charged nicads, the batties die after 5 minutes wether the camera is on or off. I now use it as a paper weight.

I have a Canon Powershot A540. It literally eats batteries. I actually bought a second set of rechargable batteries because I thought the first set might be bad. I put in newly charged batteries that I know should be completely charged, take between 2-4 pictures and it will be showing that the battery is already low. My sister has the same camera and the same problem.

The battery for my z33wp won't charge anymore. It has only been fully charged 3-4 times. The camera's fine because with the little bit of battery left, it still worked perfectly. I don't know if the fault is with the charger or the battery. I'm still just about covered with the 6 month warranty, but im just wondering if this is a common problem. Would purchasing an alternative battery and charger be a good idea?
