Sony DSC H5 runs down batteries very rapidly. Much faster than when the camera was originally purchased. A pair of new AA batteries only lasts for 12 - 24 photos. Brand new rechargeables fully charged are totally drained after sitting in the camera for a few weeks with no use. The camera is definitely OFF. This did not happen three years ago when I bought the camera, it started in the last 6 months. I can't go on like this!

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. I have taken only two photos. I've mostly only turned it on a few times to fool around with it and to try to learn the different functions.

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.

My Nikon CoolPix 5700 seems confused about OFF and ON, and now I can't take a photo becase it won't stay ON long enough for me to press the shutter release. The problem appears a bit like a low-battery issue, but I have been placing totally recharged batteries (as fas as I can tell) in it (two different ones) over and over, and still the camera turns on and off at will. Any ideas? Is there a way to totally reboot the camera, like one reboots hard drives? Thank you.

Two things....my approx.18 month old battery died and i bought a replacement yesterday. is this the normal life expectancy? 2nd. Today, with a totally charged battery, I took eight pictures. Later I wanted to review the pics and when I pushed the on/off button, the lens came out but no image appeared. I could not shut off the camera, so had to pop the battery out.

Hi.my daughter's Panasonic DMC-FZ7 has gone dark through the view-finder, and all the photos and videos that she tries to shoot are likewise totally black.
