Battery Problems The Canon PowerShot A480 is sucking the life out of the batteries!

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 camera won't switch on. I thought it needed charging but the light on the charger unit only goes from solid red to flashing red. Whilst in the charging unit, I can view the pictures on the card and it suggests the battery is at full strength. Is it worth getting a new battery or could something else be amiss?

Most likely the battery or charger is bad, and batteries go bad more often than chargers. You should measure the contacts on the charger, and see if you're getting a good charging voltage. If you don't have a voltmeter, you can pick one up at Har ... Casio EXILIM Card EX-S770 Digital Camera

I have an Olympus e510 that I bought new 2 years ago. The other day I got it out to use it and it will not turn on. I purchased a new battery, charged it, and it still will not work. When I removed the battery from the charger the light on the charger was green. I decided after the camera would not turn on I put the battery back on the charger. At that time the charger was showing a red light. Could the charger be going bad?

My Insignia HD Insignia Camcorder won't charge. The battery is in correctly. It won't charge. I plug in the charger and it flashes for a couple hours. It should be good to go right? Wrong, the thing records for less than a minute and then it is completely dead. Oh yeah, I even wasted money on a new battery, same results. Charging via usb to the computer gets me no where. It flashes for 10 seconds then go solid red.

Charging battery the battery died when in use and when we placed it on the charger the red light flashes instead of staying solid red and does not charge the camera. Other functions on the cradle work. I tried removing and reinsertting the battery and checked the contacts and they are clean. the contacts on the charger are also clean. I down loaded the pictures on it thru the cradle so that seems to be working

Jazz DV-179 Hi there, My Jazz DV179 camcorder will not turn on. I've plugged the usb into computer and camera and the red light flashes a couple of times and then stays solid red. This would seem to indicate that it is charged. But it won't turn on. Can you please advise? Also, we lost the battery charger that plugs into AC outlet. Assuming we can just charge it by plugging it into computer via USB? Where would we find an AC battery charger for it?


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

How long do Kodak KLIC-7001 batteries usually last? I just bought a new charger (K7700) for my battery and when I put it in the green light flashes and then the red and then goes right off. Why is this happening and what is the good of a charger if it won't charge the rechargeable batteries?

I can only take a few pictures on my camera before it either shuts itself off and/or won't turn on again.

I'm trying to charge my Canon battery for my Rebel XTI camera. I have a Canon Battery Charger for LC E5. The Battery pack is LP-E5. The battery fits into the charger and a red light comes on. It doesn't flash. It remains constant. I've had it in the charger for 4 hours, and it doesn't turn green. Is the battery fully charged if there's a constant red light and no green light? Thank you.

Battery light blinking red when plugged into charger. I have already bought a replacement battery for this camera at my own cost. Every year this happens. I would either like a new battery (not at my cost) or a camera replacement that doesn't run through batteries once a year. I have had a cheaper Canon camera for over 5 years and this hasn't happened once yet...is there a problem with the Casio Exilim Z75 models that is not being publicized? Thanks in advance.

I have had the same issue 3 times now. If you call Casio they will replace the battery twice. The third time they will have you send the camera in to check for manufacturing issues. They claim they have fixed the problem, but everytime I get a new ba ... Casio Exilim EXZ75 Digital Camera
