I have a Canon PC 1309 Digital Camera, which seems to have no power. I tried new batteries - nothing. Inside the camera is a little rechargeable battery - MS614SE. This battery is rated at 3.1v, but it is comatose - just nudges the needle on the voltmeter. My question is: is the rechargeable battery bad, needs to be replaced, or is it something else - the battery is good but is simply not being recharged? Can these batteries be recharged in a Radio Shack recharger?

EasyShare Z712IS Purchased this camera in Aug. I love it but I can't seem to keep a charged battery in it. I bought some 2X rechargeable NI-MH batteries. Maybe they are not the right ones for the camera. Since the battery that came with the camera went dead I have tried these and they only last for about 6 - 10 pictures before needing recharging. What kind of a battery is the best performer for this camera that is rechargeable?

Canon PowerShot A495 - Brand new. Used it once and took 40 photos. It then told me to change the batteries which I did. From then on it keeps saying "change the batteries" I've used alkalines and also rechargeable NiMH, These are either new or fully recharged batteries and still I get the same message. I have also cleaned the terminals inside the camera and even those on the batteries themselves. No change. This is clearly not a battery problem. This is a camera problem and its seems I am not th

Samsung s500 I just bought this camera about 8 months ago, but it has never seemed to work right. It goes thru batteries like crazy. It will only take about 3 pics for every new set of batteries I put in it. I think I have spent more in batteries now han I originally did on the camera. Someone said to get rechargable batteries, this would be cost effective, however does not solve my problem of 3 pics before I would have to recharge. What can I do?

Sony Cybershot DSC W-50. All works except later part of zoom. (Zooms to x3, then no more.) Makes a noise like it's simply run out of battery power, but rechargeable battery is fine. Have assumed there is also an internal battery, but can't find where it is (to replace it?) Have also tried the (thin) instructions for what to do in this case ("Charge the rechargeable, leave for half an hour") but it doesn't help.

Battery life When I first had this camera, about 3 years ago, the rechargeable batteries I bought seemed to last for ages. But more recently the "low battery warning" has been coming on very shortly after inserting freshly charged batteries. I have tried using ordinary batteries (high powered) but even with these I can only take a few pictures before the warning light comes on. Once the light is on, the camera goes dead after a few more pictures so it's not giving me a false "low battery" warnin

The rechargeables are only meant to last a couple years maximum (pretty good that you got three out of them). Also rechargeable NiMH's have approximately 5 times the power of standard alkaline batteries. Alkaline batteries should only be used in em ... Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera

I bought my canon S5IS 2 years ago.For these 2 years it worked fine but now it is showing "Low battery problem" even when the battery is full charged.I also bought new batteries but that also in vain.I found one workaround but it seems to work for very short time. Just open the battery cover,take out all batteries and then insert ,then turn on,it MAY work for 10 sec.Please suggest what may be wrong and what to do.

Make sure that the battery terminals in your camera are clean (rub them with a pencil eraser, q-tip or micro fiber cloth). Dirty terminals can cause poor contact with your batteries, therefore, impacting there performance.Also, if you ar ... Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera

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

Battery life is so short i cant take anymore than a couple of photos before camera loses power. I've tried several different types of rechargeable batteries and even regular AA batteries. It seems to last a little longer on regular batteries, however, I would go broke buying replacement batteries.

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..

In May we purchased a Canon Power Shot 590IS. We love the camera, however, battery life with camera is poor at best. With new high energy digital batteries we get approxiamtely 40 - 45 pictures, with 4 differnt manufactures rechargable batteries, we get 12 - 15 pictures, before the batteries require replacement. The camera was retruned to Best Buys where we purchased it aong with an extended warranty. They keep the camera for 10 days, retruned it saying nothing was wrong. Any suggestions?

Battery drain The batteries seem to drain quickly even when not in use. We bought new rechargables thinking it was the batteries but could it be the camera. Is there something that may be draining the batteries?

Some models of camera do this, it's like a standby mode.\015\012\015\012you can bypass this by blocking the terminals with a piece of paper or plastic, which you remove when you want to use, this should protect the battery life, however you ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

My S9600 was left unused [batteries left in camera] for several months. Now it will work fine with the mains adaptor, but is completely dead when on battery power.

Get another battery and try charging it. You should have a second, backup battery anyway. That should narrow it down between the charger and the battery as to which is defective. How old is the camera? It may be a better investment to put the money i ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

I think I'm going to explode if I hear one more "worn out battery" explanation for what seems to be a pretty common complaint. This is my 3rd camera...all ending up with the same problem. I've had the Canon Power Shot A570 for less than a year. Someone suggested changing the settings...but even with brand spanking new batteries, I can't even get it to last long enough to get into the settings. There is clearly a problem here that has NOTHING to do with the blasted batteries.

Sounds like you have a faulty board in the camera or it could be something as simple as a software upgrade, I know some of the Fuji Hine Pix had the same problem and it was the software. Take it back to the Canon. ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

My Kodak Z1012 is camera doesn't work. I sent it to Kodak because it had a 1 year warranty. They mailed it back and said everything was fine but it still didn't work. I researched and many people said that it was the battery and that I needed to use a specific kind of Ion battery. I bought a Kodak KLIC 8000 rechargable battery and it still doesn't work. My year warranty has passed and now I am stuck with this camera that doesn't work. Any suggestions? Thank you.

When you received the camera back from Kodak and you found it didn't work, you should have immediately contacted the support techs at Kodak and explained your situation. Then you would have been issued a complaint number and your camera could be retu ... Kodak EasyShare Z1012 IS Digital Camera

The camera seems to drain the batteries very quickly when not in use, example I put in new batteries and 4 days later they showed half full on the screen. They were the AA Ni-MH rechargeable batteries.

Be sure that your Ni-MH batteries have a high enough capacity to hold their charge for extended periods. The cheaper batteries are just that. If you have not tried this, get some new Energizer 2300 milli amp hour batteries. These should perform muc ... Kodak EasyShare CX7300 Digital Camera
