Having problems with your Pentax Optio S Digital Camera ?

Optio w20 Cameraa works fint with a cable but the won't turn on with Battery - should I purchase a battery to find out if the battery is bad?

Answers :

Hey slerm,
\015\012 I would try cleaning the battery terminals inside the camera with some alcohol and cotton swabs before I went out and invested money into a new battery. The manufacturer suggests you make sure the battery is inserted correctly with the arrow pointed towards the back of the camera. If neither one of these options work for you by all means try a new battery.

I PURCHASED A KODAK DIGITAL z1085lS I took 6 shots in 24 hrs and battery was dead. The batterys are to expensive to be replacing so often,so I purchased good quality rechargable batteries but after 4 or five shots their dead also. Is therer an electrical problem with these camers or is this normal. Some times I can hear a motor turning in the camera long after it has been turned of. Hope you can help thanks chris

I purchased a Sony Mavica cd250 camera in Nov 2002. I had no problems with it until about 4 years ago. I purchased a new battery, and all was fine. Until recently, I had not used my camera for several months. I could not get the camera to hold a charge (after it was plugged in and charged, I could unplug it and it would stay on for a few minutes. When I turned it off, it would not come back on). I tried purchasing another battery from Battery Outfitters, but the battery they sold me was not comp

I have a canon SD1100 I just purchased and after a few minutes the camera will not shut off, the power button won't work and I have to open the battery cover to turn it off. Somehow this completely drains the battery too every time even if it was just charged. Also the camera turns itself on by itself about 10 minutes after you put the battery in it and once again you can't turn it off. I got another battery and the same thing happens. Otherwise it works fine.

If this is a new camera, you should be running back to the store to return it. ... Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera
