Answers :

I have the same problem. I can only turn the camera on once and then I have to wait a day before it will turn back on.  I discovered that if I take out the SD card, I can turn the camera on. Then (while the camera is on) I put the SD card back in.  It's a pain in the ****, but it works.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX5. Camera switches itself on even though it is switched off. Many occurrences of this. It has been examined and tested but nothing found wrong. Re-charged batteries run down quickly, even new ones. Comprehensive notes have been taken of the many events. In previous events, it switched itself on, then off again within seconds. This time it needed to be switched off by switching on then off switch.

Battery life My AA 3000mah batteries don't last 30 mins before the camera switches itself off, indicating that the batteries are flat. When tested on a multimeter they read 1.24volts. The manual say I should get 300 shots using 2500mah batteries. The batteries have been discharged and charged up many times but still the same problem. I'm using Nimh type batteries that read 1.35v full charge and 1.24v when the camera shuts off. Is this a common fault with this camera ?

I did not use my Nikon Coolpix S3 for quite some time. I had left the battery inside the camera. And did not charge the camera for while. Recently I tried switching it on and I found (i) the camera comes to life but the lens cover does not slide in (ii) many of the buttons are not working.(iii) the charging LED does not glow when I put the camera to charge. I checked the battery and it appeared alright to the naked eyes. Please help. Bidyut Roy

When I leave the fully charged battery in the camera for about 10 days it gets completely discharged. This is the original Nikon battery. I though the battery is old and bought a genuine Nikon battery. The issue is the same. My relatives have Nikon D200, D70s etc and they do not have these issues and the battery if left in camera last for more than 6 or many more weeks. How long should a fully charged battery last in the Camera ? ( I leave my camera off after use )

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

I have a cannon power shot A580, about one month old and it keeps asking for the date and time everytime i switch it on, even though i have replaced the date battery and the camera batteries, and set the date and time in the menu time and time again!!! HELP


If you've replaced the date battery, then the camera is defective. Being only a month old, first recommend seeing if your retailer will exchange it. If not, Canon will fix for free under warranty. Call 1-800-OK-CANON. ... Digital Cameras

From the start, the camera has been very heavy on batteries, both rechargaeble and non-rechargeable. I am told that this camera is known to have a fault. Is this so? As per my previous mail, when switching on I can access old photos, the shutter button does not depress, the screen goes blank and the camera switches off. I have changed batteries many times. Sometimes doing so gives me three or four more shots before it switches off again.

I have had my pentax potio 60 for over ayear but hardly used it. Now i want to use it. i had tried many times to charge using the recommended 2 AA batteries but does not charge. or after taking a single picture or two the signal says "battery depleted".

My Canon G9 Powershot will not switch on at all. It was working fine then the next time I tried it would not switch on. It was not dropped or was it exposed to water. It about 3-4 years old.
