Having problems with your Konica Minolta DiMAGE S414 Digital Camera ?

Even with new batteries, the camera turns off after a few seconds


Answers :

Be sure you have real fresh Alkaline batteries or fresh recharched NiMh batteries.
The best rechargeable batteries are the ENELOOP (from Sanyo), these have a very, very low discharge, so after a week the camera still works without the problem of turning off after a few seconds.

Battery? My sister got my Sony Cybershot wet...not submerged or anything...just wet. At first I thought it was broken b/c it would not turn on but I plugged it into the wall charger and it turns on just fine and takes pictures and everything..but the second you disconnect the wall charger from the camera it turns off...no juice at all. I'm wondering if I should waste money on a battery or just buy a new camera. Any suggestions? Could it possibly just be the battery?
