Batteries This camera has been the worst digital camera I have ever used.  The pic quality is fine.  The ease of use is fine.  The problem lies in the battery longevity.  Maybe that is not even the right description.  I will put in new batteries and only use my camera for a short time.  The next time I go to use the camera it is not at all uncommon for it to not turn on.  Even though it has new batteries and was not left on, the batteries are dead.  It happens with the rechargeable as well as re

The camera that I have is an red HP A730 with 7 megapixels. I've had it for about 3 years and it's always worked just fine. But, recently I lost my memory card. My camera still worked with out it. Anyway, the other day I tried to turn my camera on and it didn't work for some reason. I thought it was the batteries, so I changed them, but the light indicating that it's on flashed for a second and then turned off. Now, even though I'm using new batteries, my camera will not turn on. I will admit, I

Battery drainage I have had my olympus sp-550 uz for approx 18 months, and was getting around 175 shots even when using zoom a lot. I am now getting only 20 - 30 shots using new batteries and also getting total drainage over night at times when my camera is turned off. I have been using the same make and type of batteries since I bought the camera.


20 to 30 shots on "fresh" batteries! Do you use the flash on all shots. That really drains them. I would try to set the camera to "factory default settings" in case you changed something that is causing a drain. I hope you just bought some bad batter ... Olympus SP-550 UZ Digital Camera

Battery Problem When fully charged the camera will work for a few hours. It can be switched off annd back on again and will run with no little loss of charge after 8 hours or so.

The battery is run down every time I come to use the camera. So it seems to bleed out power even when turned off. I have replaced the original battery and the new battery also runs out while sitting turned off. Is this a SONY generic problem or is there some item that is "on" and draining power.

Fuji s9000 problem, it won't turn on with the ac supply at all. The last time I used my camera I put in some rechargeable batteries (new ones) while the camera had the ac adapter connected, I was just seeing if the new batteries had charge on them or not.

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks
