I have had two digital cameras (the first an Ixus - the present a Powershot). After a couple of years the Ixus wore out batteries in 5 minutes - and buying new ones did not help. Now the same thing is happenng to my Powershot - which uses ordinary AA-batteries. Both cameras still take very good pictures - but a retailer told me that this is what happens to digital cameras after a while. Do i really have to by a new one every 3.rd year - or have anyone any suggestions?


Rechargeable batteries lose performance when they get older. A three year lifespan is not unusual. Note that your camera does not use "normal" AA batteries. It should be using rechargeable NiMH or disposable lithium AA's only, although alkaline (e.g. ... Canon Digital Cameras

Best Buy has had the camera twice in the past 2 months to try and fix... They have done nothing other than suggest I use Kodak batteries... I used a NEW Kodak and a LENMAR and have been for 2 years... why issues now at the end of my extended warranty with Best Buy????

NO Power My Camera won't power on. It used to work just fine. It still looks brand new. I have tried new batteries & using DC plug with no use. Is there a reset button that I don't know about? I am afraid to take it in for repair because the charges will most likely will not make sense for me to keep this one. Any real suggestions?

Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pictures.


Take the card to a Walmart and insert it into one of their picture kiosk machines. You can print the pictures or even make a CD of them. ... Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS IXUS 105 Digital Camera

My Dimage Z6 (which has 6 megapizels and an optical zoom x 12) which I bought about four years ago is fine but needs a new memory card reader, does anyone know where to get one as I can't use the camera without it. I don't really want to buy a new camera but may have to. As Konica are no longer in business I understand spare parts are thin on the ground. Thanks Karen

The first thing that may be complicating things is, can your laptop read SDHC cards, or just SD cards? If the laptop is asking you to format it, then probably it's working, but be really sure, before you continue.Check the co ... Digital Cameras

We have a Fuji S5000 digital camera we really like. However, lately it takes shots that are more like artwork with colors running down the page. I looked it up and it appears to be the image sensor. Where can I get a replacement sensor or the camera fixed What should I expect it to cost as we are debating whether to find a used one or just buy a new camera.


Hi!Yes, it's the image sensor (CCD). For Fujifilm it usually comes together with lens and that makes it quite expensive - about 200$ here. I whink you should get a new one.Tom ... Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

My camera has a delayed response when I push the shutter button down to snap a picture-it takes 3-4 seconds and then the moment is gone! Another problem I have is the pictures moniter are blurry. Also, the battery life in the camera is extremely short. I charge them on a regular basis. (My daughter threw the camera on the floor in a rage)is there any way the camera can be fixed or will it cost just as much to buy a new, better one?

Focus Problem Hi, I'm a new A2 owner, and I'm having problems getting pictures in focus especially when using telephoto zoom. Any one out there have an A2 and could give some suggestions that might help.. Thanks


The A2 uses contrast detection AF and so is a bit slow, especially in low light. I find that I get best results by setting the AF slider on the left hand end of the camera to "S" (focuses only when shutter button half pressed). The "C" setting for co ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2 Digital Camera

Only about 9 months after buying my camera, It wouldn't turn on. I'll plug it in and the light will come on that it's charging, but when I got to turn it on, it turns on for a split second (and the zoom lense comes out) and then it turns itself right back off (and the zoom lense goes in). I thought that it needed a new battery so I bought one and it's still doing the same thing. I emailed Kodak and they said that I should just send it into them for a $60 repair fee...lame. Any suggestions?


If its only been 9 months since you bought it shouldn't it be covered for repair? espically if its a manufactures fault,which it sounds like. ... Kodak EasyShare M863 Digital Camera

Batteries "depleted" my camera was working perfect with some rechargeable NiMh batteries i had bought, giving me about 400 shots / charge. However at one point, for no apparent reason, when i used them, they would be shown as 'depleted' by the camera after about 4-5 shots, shutting the camera down. It stayed like this so I decided to buy a set of new NiMh batteries, i bought panasonic brand. But the problem remains now, whenever i insert batteries, they will be depleted (or at least according to

My canon rebel xsi was working a month ago. Today I took it out from the case and found it was not reading the card (8gd transand). It had been working fine until last time I used it mid of April. Thought it was a card problem, I went out to buy a new one (8gb sdhc), put it in and it asked for reformat. Proceed to reformat the card, but it says it can't reformat it and ask to change the card. Put in the old card (which was loaded with picture I previouly took), it asks the same thing. I'm 100% s
