Answers :

No firmware upgrade available yet, but did you set the camera settings to the TYPE of battery you are using? Go to Setup, chose Battery, then set type - alkaline, lith, metal hyd, etc and see if that helps.
I had this exact same problem. i had taken out a 3 year guarantee with jessops where i bought it so i just sent it back to them and they repaired it for free. it now works :) i don't know what they did so i can't help personally but i know that if you send it to someone who knows their camera stuff they should be able to fix it :)

Battery issue Hi, I've owned this camera for about 1 year. In the last couple of months the red battery icon will flash and the camera will shut down thinking it has dead batteries. The problem is, we may put in brand new batteries or fully charged re-chargable batteries and the icon is there right away. Does the mini battery inside need to replaced? If that isn't the problem then I have no idea what is wrong with thing......my last camera did the same thing (Fugi)

Go to the menu and make sure you have the battery type set to the kind you are using. ... GE A730 Digital Camera

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.

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

Last year, my friend & I both bought factory-reconditioned Polaroid 7.0MP digital cameras i737, supplied in original boxes, with all necessary bits. Both of us got 'Replace battery' messages, and cameras stopped working; we both gave up. A while ago, my grandson "poked around", had no trouble taking pictures, but got The Message. I've been trying again. Using Uniross NiMH batteries, 2700mAh, previously used only a little, newly recharged. Menu indicates that the camera knows that's what it's

I have a HP Photosmart M415 digital camera 3 years old. It will not hold the charge in the rechargable batteries and also when I replace them with Duracel I can only take about 10 photos and then the camera tells me that the batteries are depleted and shuts down.I have also bought new rechargable batteries but the problem still persists.


You have to go for a rechargeable battery as duracell doesnt have enough current as the camera consumes more energy then a rechargeable battery has. go for uniross 2200 mha battery that is pretty cheap and best. ... HP Digital Cameras

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 ...

I have a Canon PowerShot SD500, Digital ELPH. It has been WONDERFUL! Since I have used it a lot and for years traveling, I am wondering how much longer it will work. Is there an average lifespan for these cameras? What camera should I replace it with if I want comparable quality and function? What symptoms will develop when it is reaching the age that it will need to be replaced? I hope it lasts forever as it is a wonderful camera. The only thing it doesn't do is video.
