Having problems with your HP Photosmart M447 Digital Camera ?

I keep constantly charging my rechargable batteries and trying normal ones too but they don't last long in the camera why are they loosing power so quickly even when the camera isn't on?

Answers :

Having the same problem without taking any pictures. I put the fully charged batteries in the camera the night before and that morning the batteries are completely dead. I researched a few forums including the HP website and it said it could be linked to memory card being formatted incorrectly and it hangs the camera up inadvertently leaving the camera on. It also says that contacts could also be the problem. I have also read where a few other types of HP cameras users were having the same problem as I. I do not think it has anything to do with having higher strength batteries. I should at least be able to get a few pics in before the batteries die. There is definitely some type of battery drain going on when the camera is in the off position.
Alot of digital cameras consume enormous amounts of amps from the batteries if they are not powerful enough. 2500ma Rechargable types sould suffice.

Have a lumix DMC-FC20 and began to hear a noise as if there was a loose part... I am familiar with the stability mechanism and was aware camera movement can result in a noise that sounds similar to a loose part but the noise continued even if the camera was powered-off. My curiosity got the best of me and I removed the screws on the casing and opened the back to confirm that there was a loose screw approximately 1/4" long. I have no idea where the screw came from since I could not easily remove

No power My camera will not even power up. I bought a new battery and charged it but still no power. I took the camera apart and the only thing I saw out of the ordinary is a tiny (and I mean tiny) black plastic piece that was running loose inside. I can't figure out where it goes but I'm hoping that it may be the key to my problem.

Canon 20d, mirror constantly setting under power, sounds like the camera shutter constantly engaging, like a multiple exposure. with or without lens attached, with or without memory card, with or without time/date battery, sometimes even when camera turned off, and sometimes with camera turned off and as soon as battery makes contact with terminals.

Preliminary reviews of various forums indicate that this is a shutter-lock issue, requiring the whole shutter assembly to be replaced.\015\012I just sent mine in for repairs for the same issue, but they haven't diagnosed it yet.\015\012It ... Digital Cameras

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 the Nikon Coolpix L20. Every time I delete a picture from reviewing it it freezes on the screen "please wait". Ive waited as long as 5 minutes before.

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

No power I purchased a Canon 400D about a year ago and shortly afterwards the camera suddenly gave up on me. I took a couple of photos and then nothing. The battery was fully charged and the power light came on when the camera was switched on and remained on even when the camera was switched off. I was going to take the camera in to a service centre a few weeks later for repairs but when I switched the cameraon again, the problem seemed to have disappeared.

Toshiba PDR-M700 When I power up the camera, the lens will not come out and sometimes will come out all the way to maximum zoom. When I power off with the lens out, it clicks as if something is stripped or loose. After shut down, I can push the lens back in. Once in a while the camera will work but eventually the "Lens Error" message comes up. This was a good expensive camera when I bought it but taking it in for service would probably cost more than the price of a new camera today. Can you sugg
