I hit the power button and it turns green for a second but then goes out. The camera and LCD screen do nothing. So I have some sort of power problem. When I put the battery in the charger the charger light comes on for about a 10seconds but then goes out (suggesting that the battery is fully charged). Is this a battery problem (not charging or holding a charge) or a camera problem? I don't want to buy a new battery if the camera itself is dead... Thanks!

I have had my camera for about 4-5 years now and my battery wouldnt hold a charge for the past several months then it got to the point where it wouldnt turn on at all, so I assumed I just needed a new battery. I found them on sale online so I actually ordered two and put one in and it didnt do a thing. I attached the charger and charged it overnight thinking maybe it needed an initial charge.....still nothing. I tried the other battery incase the 1st one was bad and still....nothing. I reall

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

My finepix s1000fd will not hold battery charge. Cleaned the battery connects. New duracel batteries are discharged in an hour of being in camera on off. I tried new rechargable batteries and they will not hold either. When turned off, the camera runs the batteries out. What could be wrong?

I purchased a Sony Mavica cd250 camera in Nov 2002. I had no problems with it until about 4 years ago. I purchased a new battery, and all was fine. Until recently, I had not used my camera for several months. I could not get the camera to hold a charge (after it was plugged in and charged, I could unplug it and it would stay on for a few minutes. When I turned it off, it would not come back on). I tried purchasing another battery from Battery Outfitters, but the battery they sold me was not comp

I have a powershot a620. The battery compartment is coming undone...where you hold it..so the batteries have a little jiggle room. When it first "popped out" a small amount it was fine. on a recent trip it started coming apart more and the batteries then quit holding a charge. A fresh set of batteries now lasts about 20 min. I am guessing it might be because they don't have as good of a connection but I cannot get that part of the camera to go back under the "lip" and am afraid to take it apart

My T1 is experiencing power problems. I have several batteries and when the camera is plugged in it shows the charge light but the batteries just dont seem to hold power for very long.

Brand new battery won't hold charge. Camera is three years old. I bought an extra battery when I bought the camera. They both seemed to go bad at the same time, so I recently bought two new lithium batteries, just like the originals. I'm having the same symptom--the charge lasts for only a few photos--maybe 50 without the flash.

If this happens even to new batteries, it may no longer be an issue with the batteries, but it can be an issue with the camera itself. check the maximum number of shots that the camera can take with the batteries per its specification. if it should p ...
