Just purchased Nikon S570 less than a week ago. After taking 10 or so pics today while out on a hike, the camera locked up saying it could not read the card. It would not allow me to take anymore pics. It would not allow downloading of pics off the card either as it locked up my computer when I tried to download the pics. Also, the camera has locked up while I was trying to set menu options several times over the last couple of days. I have simply turned it off and then back on again to get it w

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.
These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras
My i835 Polaroid digital camera eats batteries -- a new set of batteries lasts less than a minute.The camera is six months old, but has been used only one day.
Less than a minute? There is an obvious short that is draining the battery. Check the contacts in the camera to be sure there is no bridging contact between them causing the short circuit. Otherwise, e-mail a service tech at the Polaroid website with ... Polaroid i835 Digital Camera

The battery will only last for about 10 pictures and then it goes dead. I also have lines appear at the bottom of each picture. They look like stripes that gradually fade as they move up the digital screen. I bought it a few days ago and I've taken less than 20 pics before it started doing this. Is there a quick solution?

Within the last few days, suddenly when I take a picture a picture there is a little red eye that is flashing on the left hand of the screen and the little green light at the top is flashing also and there is hesitation of about 15 seconds before a picture is taken and then the picture will have a redish tint to it when it processes. This just started and I have changed batteries out and powered the camera on and off several times and I have checked all of the settings, and still cannot figure
It sounds to me that the timer is on. That would certainly explain the blinking lights and the 15 second delay. There should be a button with what looks like a small clock on it to turn this feature on and off. You should also be able to find it i ... Digital Cameras

I got my Canon a590 this past christmas; since then, every so often, it will not show any image on the screen. All I can see is the menu options. Every time I want to take a picture, all I get is absolute black. However, I can view pictures on a memory card with no problem on the main screen. The last 3-4 times this happened, the problem usually went away within a few days. I've tried replacing the batteries, but to no avail. Is my lens bad, or is it due to a more intricate problem?
Your camera should still be covered under the one year factory warranty. I would go to the Canon website and contact them for a covered repair if I were you.\015\012\015\012Best regards,\015\012Bob ... Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera
Blurry Pictures I have had this camera less than a year. I took it to the beach 2 weeks ago and the camera was fine. Crystal clear pictures. Then, on the last day of vacation, the pictures started coming out blurry. Even when I am preparing to take a picture the view finder is blurry. The camera is on auto focus and it is set to the shoot and click setting (little green camera). It didn't get wet at all. Anyone know if there is a setting that I may have touched or is this an internal problem.

Nikon D70 I have a Nikon D70, been using it for 3 years now without a problem up until 2 months ago when I tried to take a picture the screen read "CHG" or "Charge." I assumed it meant the battery. I charged the battery for a full day thinking this would work and of course it didn't. I did the same thing for the next three days with no luck. I eventually bought a new battery and still the word "CHG" or "Charge" shows up on the screen and doesn't allow me to take any pictures. Would you happen to

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
If the troubleshooting section in the back of the user guide doesn't help, I sugget getting in touch with Sony and asking them if it's normal, the only thing I can suggest in the meantime, is taking the battery out while it's not in use, or recharge ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T2 Digital Camera
KODAK CAMERA I can put fresh batteries in and take a few pics download them shut it off then turn it back on, and it will not let me, it shuts off just about as soon as I turn it on. I can take the same batteries out and put them back in and it will work for a few minutes then there it goes, its turns itself off. I went to try to get another one and they said since itwas 10 days past the 30 day limit. I had to get ahold of you. I really feel like throwing it in the dam River.
Hi,\015\012I found that most digital cameras are fussy. They need the right type of battery. Try using energiser rechargables. They last longer and are the cheapest that work. Don't bother with cheap batteries they don't work. ... Kodak EasyShare Z710 Digital Camera
Battery Problems CANON A80 Battery Problems Have had a CANON A80 for nearly three years. The first two years were great. The batteries would last for ages between charges, and with a new baby we took lots of photos. Then the batteries started playing up. Fully charged batteries would only last a few days, or if left would not power up at all. Have replaced the batteries, and the chargers with no improvement. Here in NZ there is a huge wait for repairs, so if it is beyond repair I?ll just re

When I leave the fully charged battery in the camera for about 10 days it gets completely discharged. This is the original Nikon battery. I though the battery is old and bought a genuine Nikon battery. The issue is the same. My relatives have Nikon D200, D70s etc and they do not have these issues and the battery if left in camera last for more than 6 or many more weeks. How long should a fully charged battery last in the Camera ? ( I leave my camera off after use )

Batteries I bought my camera 3 days ago, used it once to take about 6 pictures yesterday, and the batteries went dead. I charged them according to the directions and now when I turn it on it reads a fully charged battery until I try to take a pic, then a message appears reading "battery depleted" and it turns off. It is brand new and only used once, what could it possibly be?

If I turn the camera off and turn it back on, it will let me take more pictures. Is something wrong with the battery or is it my camerea?

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
