\015 My camera keeps draining the batteries. What is the problem?\015

Answers :

A lot of things could cause this problem, there is no magic solution, but you can try to clean the battery terminals on the batteries, and also inside the camera...if they're oxidized, that will cause a high drain when the camera is on. Other than that, the batteries could be old and not holding a charge like they used to...rechargeables don't last forever. If you check these things, and still have the problem, the camera will have to be serviced to find the problem. Often the cost of service is more than the cost of a new replacement camera. I've seen 10.2 mp name brands on sale for $69, and you can't get one repaired for that, usually.

I have a relatively new camera. The battery seems to keep draining way faster than other cameras I have had. i.e. took about 70 pictures and it drained. Do I have to constantly recharge it? If it site a few weeks without usage does that drain the battery? OR do I need a new battery? I can not find my receipt for the camera.

Batteries I have a Gateway DC-M40 camera. The batteries drain very fast and the situation keeps on getting worse. Yesterday I loaded a fresh set of batteries & they drained to 25% within hours & I had not taken a single picture & the camera was OFF all trhe time.

Drained Batteries I am having a battery problem with my A75, which is my first digital camera. The camera has gone through 2 sets of brand new alkaline batteries since I've had it.

My camera won't stay on. It turns on and lens goes out and adjusts and then retracts in and camera turns off. I am in the process of taking it apart to figure it out but unless it is a problem of the screws needing to be tightened I don't know what to do next. Can you help me or refer me. I bought this camera used and really like it and want to keep it if I can. I have had so much trouble keeping digital cameras working. Thanks
