Answers :

This is not a straight forward question, it would depend on how often you wisg to use it. It also depends on the type of batteries you have installed. Nic Cad, Polymer, NMH. Polymer don't need charging often because they have good holding power for months. The cadmium and NMH types need a regular charge, for instance at least a top up onjce a month to keep them live. If you dont use the camera much remove the batteries whjen in storage place them in a kliplock bag and place in freezer. This may be extremem but keeps the batteries alive for years.

Always before use fully charge the ewith an intelligent charger, one that stops when capacity is reached. This prevents damage from Overcharging.

hope this is helpful,

My cybershot DSC-S730 has new NiMH batteries. The batteries can be fully charged when i put them into the camera and after a few photos I often put the camera away. When i go to use the camera the next day the battery charge is insufficient to open it. I can then them remove the batteries and put them into an older model cybershot and the old camera will work with the same batteries. Why does the new camera only work with batteries that have come directly off the charger. This is a nuisance as I

When I press the power button for my Olympus FE-190 to turn the camera on nothing happens. I haven't used it for a while so I initially thought that the battery might not have any charge. When I put the battery in the charger the charging light stays on for a few minutes and then goes out. I'm wondering if the battery needs replacing. I don't use the camera very often, have had it for a few years and, stupidly, have a tendancy to leave the battery in it when the camera is not in use.

Well, are your batteries in the right slots, and put in right position? Are the batteries used? Was your camera exposed to water? These might be reasons why this is happening to you. If this isn't a very good solution, I have more details, want them? ... Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera

I have had an Exilim EX-Z75 for just over a year. Suddenly I'm having trouble charging the battery. No matter how long I leave it on charge the light keeps flashing and the battery is not charged. Do I need a new battery? I don't use the camera very often but I thought the battery would work for longer. Is there a solution to this? I'm experiencing it too :(

Yes you need a new battery. I had the same problem almost exactly a year ago. You need to contact Casio and tell them the problem, they should send you a new battery free of charge. This is the proper number to call, 1 800 435 7732. Just tell them ... Casio Exilim EX-Z750 Digital Camera

I don't expect something wrong other then the battery is totally flat, just take the battery out of the charger unplug the charger wait a few minutes and plug the charger back in and insert the battery again. I've had to do this upwards to three time ... Digital Cameras

Low Battery When turning the camera on, the screen often says "Low Battery", even if the batteries are brand new. The problems seems to last a few hours, then it turns on as normal. I have tried cleaning the contacts and the battery tubes, but nothing obvious seems to cause it, or solve it. Sometimes, it cuts out to "Low Battery" in the middle of taking photos, when the charge indicator on the screen has just been at full. Someone else asked this question on-line, but had no replies, and a frien

Hi. My Nikon Coolpix s6000 works nice but has one problem--it tends to turn off fairly often on its own. The camera is about 2 months old and the battery is fully charged, yet when reviewing pictures or getting ready to take a picture, it will just turn off unexpectedly. Any ideas if this is common or what may be wrong?

There's nothing wrong...your camera is trying to save the battery. You can go into the menu and set the turn-off time to a longer duration. ... Nikon COOLPIX S6000 Digital Camera

No Power on camera. Battery will not charge. Charger led flashes when tying to charge. Have another (older 2007) exact model camera and battery from this camera works fine within this camera.
