Hi! I took several shots yesterday and went to upload the pix on my computer today and when I connected the camera to my computer the battery was at 100%. Then the camera completely shut off. I tried turning it back on with no result. I recharged the battery with the same result. I figured my battery must be dead ( yet only 1 year old) and purchased a new one. I fully charged that one and plugged my camera in again and the same thing happened! What could this be caused from? No damage has ever

Lens distorded My view is blurred and jagged appearing. When taking the picture anyway, it comes out the same, and but a little hour glass thing comes in view and empties and then it reads card is full, after taking only one picture. What in the world could be causing this. I recently bought a new battery. It is fully charged. I hope I didn't ruin my camera with this off brand battery. Actuall I put the old one in to see if it did the same thing and it does. How ever you can help, I would appre

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

I figured out the problem. My AA battery recharger was not making good contact, so although it said the batteries were recharged, this was not the case. After fixing this and getting full recharges, the problem went away. ... Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

My sx20is is less then one year old. I have a message stating the batteries need charging. Regardless wether I charge the batteries or install new batteries I keep getting the same message and the camera shuts down instantly. Any Suggestions? Thanks. Arne

Your battery terminals inside the camera might be dirty. Clean them good with a qtip and isopropyl alcohol, and make sure they're clean. Otherwise, you have a more difficult problem and the unit will have to be troubleshot (and disassembled). H ... Canon PowerShot SX20 IS Digital Camera

Camera will not come on. Previously, I have not used the camera for two years. I took it out and charged several batteries. It shows that they are fully charged. But, the camera would not come on initially. When ti did, it will register fully charged. But, would on come on briefly and shut off after a minute.

Try to use it firstly with AC adaptor(VSK0617) to understand that if it is working. The original battery pack (CGA-S302A) irreversibly loses approximately 20% capacity per year. So it is normal I think. Also, high charge levels and elevated temperat ... Panasonic D-Snap SV-AV100 Digital Camera

Battery failure I charge my Pentax Optio S5z battery on the charger then put it in the camera when it is fully charged (green light comes on on the charger) but the camera won't work ie. battery is dead, as i put it back in the charger and the light comes up red like it is flat again. Sometimes I just leave it in the camera and it seems to work after a few days, then may last for a day or sometimes for ages. I'm guessing the battery is stuffed but I want to check before I buy a new one. Please

The only solution for that is to buy a new battery. I had the same problem with my canon 900Ti (NB5 battery), died after less than a year. It probably exceeded it's battery cycle life... have a nice day! ... Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera

I have a one year old Canon Powershot, SD1100 IS. The battery appears fully charged in the charger, however, the camera will not turn on and the lens will not tract into the camera.

If you've ever let the battery fully discharge from non-use for an extended period of time, it will not come back. However, if that is not the case, then maybe this will help.\015\012 ... Digital Cameras

My Panasonic DMC-FX30 is less than a year old and is failing. It won't take a picture, constantly requests to turn the off and back on, and now pretty much freezes up on the screen and won't react to any input other than disconnecting the battery. If I put a fresh charge on the battery, the camera might work for one shot before same behaviors occur. What is wrong?

There could be a few things. One thing is for sure though. If it is less then a year old. Don't waste another second. Have it sent into the manufacturer to be repaired under warranty.www.panasonic.comThanks,Lee ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX30 Digital Camera

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.

My Canon powershot SD20 seems to constantly have a drained battery. I have two batteries for it, and each one seems to be good for about five minutes, then the camera says change the battery pack and it shuts off. But when I plug the battery in to charge the green fully charged light comes on within a minute. Are BOTH of the batteries defective, or is this a problem with the camera itself?

After leaving my Sony DSC-T2 camera unused for only a couple of days the battery was flat. I recharged it fully but again it only lasted a day or two. I assumed the battery was dead and I purchased a new Sony NP-BD1 battery and charged it correctly. This new battery is behaving exactly the same as the old one, only holding a charge for a day or two at most. It seems the camera is draining the battery when it is switched off, or maybe the charger is faulty ??? Any ideas?? many thanks - Geoff

Camera's about 2 years old. With a fully charged battery it will take about 8 to 10 photos and then the battery indicates total discharge. How ever, if the camera is turned off for several minutes and then back on it will again take several pictures and but then again shows that the battery is totally discharged. I have tried installing a new "out of the box" battery in the camera but I still get the same sequence of events. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated

My camera is less than a year old but has recently been giving problems with the battery connection - I believe. The battery shows full and the camera works perfectly, then with no indication why the camera will not turn on. When left and then turned on later it sometimes works again, without the battery being charged in the meantime and with it again showing full.

It won't turn on even with a fully charged battery. What do I do? I've owned it for at least 5 years and have three batteries and a pentax charger that turns green when a battery is charged. I put the batteries in correctly. Now the camera will not turn on. My wife was using it on a trip when it happened. I can't seem to get it to turn on now despite trying everything I know and reading the manual. Any ideas for me. Is it possible that all three batteries are too old yet appearing to char
