I think the camera got some liquid damage. 4 brand new batteries only last about 1 hour, tops. then, the camera screen kinda "freezes" as you try to take pictures. The flash is also not really working. not happy, help!

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

Battery life is so short i cant take anymore than a couple of photos before camera loses power. I've tried several different types of rechargeable batteries and even regular AA batteries. It seems to last a little longer on regular batteries, however, I would go broke buying replacement batteries.


The only way is to buy a battery and not overcharge it or it lessens the battery life ... HP Photosmart 735 Digital Camera

I went snorkeling with my olympus 780sw camera last weekend and was taking photos just fine. It was nearing the end of the battery life I believe and when i went to try to turn it on, nothing happened so I thought it had died(battery) I went to try and charge it, and the red light comes on, but it only flashes and does not stay solid, even after letting the battery sit in the charger for >5 hours. Is there a problem with my battery then? the charger? the camera and battery combined? any assistan


That happened to me, then i put the battery in the same kind of charger and it started charging fine. ... Olympus Stylus 790SW Digital Camera

Battery problem This morning I turned on my brand new Nikon Coolpix 5400 and got nothing on the screen. pushed some buttons and still nothing. Went to turn it off and it won't. The lens stays extended and the power light is still on. I don't know if maybe the batteries are so low they can't do anything, but I was under the impression that the camera had an indicator for the batteries really needing to be recharged. The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged


Some of these cameras go from "low" to "no" very quickly. The electronics are more sensitive to available voltage than the mechanicals and it doesn't take full voltage to keep an led lit or to retract the lens. But the cpu shuts down. I would have ex ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 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

My small handheld video camera "Aiptek ISDV2.4" has a battery life of literally 1 minute. Even when I replace the batteries, they still only last for 1 minute. I have tried rechargeable batteries, but those don't seem to help at all. I really want normal battery life for my video camera..


Try a reset. Turn on the camera and press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. This will reset the camera(you will lose all your settings and stuff) and hopefully, it will resolve the issue. If it doesn't I would strongly suspect that this is a ... Digital Cameras

I am trying to to charge panasonic lumix dmc-zs5 camera battery with it. As soon as I plugged it in showed a red light (power) on the charger.

The battery is charged.. it doesnt even make a noise like its trying to focus. the wiewfinder bracket thingy lights up red but nothing after that.

I have had two digital cameras (the first an Ixus - the present a Powershot). After a couple of years the Ixus wore out batteries in 5 minutes - and buying new ones did not help. Now the same thing is happenng to my Powershot - which uses ordinary AA-batteries. Both cameras still take very good pictures - but a retailer told me that this is what happens to digital cameras after a while. Do i really have to by a new one every 3.rd year - or have anyone any suggestions?


Rechargeable batteries lose performance when they get older. A three year lifespan is not unusual. Note that your camera does not use "normal" AA batteries. It should be using rechargeable NiMH or disposable lithium AA's only, although alkaline (e.g. ... Canon Digital Cameras

Freeze Up I just got my first digital camera, chock full of buttons, dials, wheels and screens. ;-) Anyway after a few hours of playing with it - it locked up...no buttons worked.(even the power button) I had to finally remove the battery from the live camera to reset it. Since then it has happened almost half a dozen times in the last few weeks. Has anyone seen this phenomenon ? Is there cure or is it necessary to send it for warranty repair.(return to store)


Sorry this post is probably way too late for fishi, but in case anyone else needs an answer;\015\012\015\012Yes. Return it to store.

Sloooooowww speed I LOVED my 20D the first two years I had it. Then last spring it started slowing down - I was no longer able to fire off shots like before in multi-shot mode. Then one day it wouldn't stop clicking off shots. I turned it off, took the battery out and let it sit for a bit. Then it stopped working altogether and I got an error 99. It went into the shop and Ritz Camera said they fixed it - but they didn't. It worked one hour and did the same thing. I loaded a firmware update on it

Hi, My DMC-FZ7 will not turn on. It has been stored for 24 hours since the last use but was inadvertently left on instead of being turned off. (It's off now) I just put in a fresh battery and there are only a few images on the memory card. Do you have any idea what I might do now? Thanks, Cathy

I also cannot get our A640 to power on, either with new batteries or with a power cord. We are a non-profit Boys & Girls Club and replacing it is really a last resort. We use it with our Card-ID system to generate membership cards with photos on them. Any suggestions? If I need to send it for professional repair, what do you suggest?


Things to check first are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Details on what needs to be checked ... Canon PowerShot A640 Digital Camera
