My easyshare camera drains batteries every other usage. but right now I put new batteriers in several times and I hear it start but nothing happens the shutter doesnt open and nothing comes on.

Camera problem My daughter just received a new HP635 camera for her birthday. At first the camera worked fine, but after a few minutes of use, the camera started flashing the welcome screen repeatedly and the zoom lense would move in and out over and over until we opened the battery storage compartment of the camera. Opening the battery compartment is the only way to turn the camera off. Everything on the camera becomes inoperable when this process starts which now is every time the camera is tu


Pentax Optio 555 Digital Camera. Once I have taken a couple of photos in a row, the camera continually flashes red & green. Like it is continually thinking. I cannot then even get the camera to shut down eithout removing the battery or just leaving it until it times itself out. If i remove the battery, I still have to turn it on & then off again to get the lense to retract. Can you help to solve this problem. It does it no matter what the charge in the battery is like. Full or half used.

Batteries This camera has been the worst digital camera I have ever used.  The pic quality is fine.  The ease of use is fine.  The problem lies in the battery longevity.  Maybe that is not even the right description.  I will put in new batteries and only use my camera for a short time.  The next time I go to use the camera it is not at all uncommon for it to not turn on.  Even though it has new batteries and was not left on, the batteries are dead.  It happens with the rechargeable as well as re
