Having problems with your Samsung Digimax D53 Digital Camera ?

Draining rechargable batteries;

\015 When I put recharged batteries in the camera, it will turn on and take some pictures. When I use the option to look at pictures that I have taken, I can look at them, but if I stop too long to look at a picture, the camera freezes, and it won't do ANYTHING. It won't even turn off. I just have to take the batteries out and put them back in for the camera to turn back on. Usually by then, the batteries are dead and it won't turn on at all. In other words, I can only use the camera for a few minutes and then it drains the batteries.\015

Answers :

Cameras LOVE batteries. Rechargeable batteries only start out with 1.25 volts instead of 1.5 volts so, you're already on the road to a dead battery. Lithium cost a lot more but, they last a lot longer. Alkaline will work okay but, it will still eat them up, especially the cheaper brands. We take about 3000 pictures in a year and I've tried every possible battery. If processing didn't cost so much and if there was a way to see if you actually got the picture you wanted, I'd go back to a film camera today.

\015\012Does the same symptom happen with alkaline batteries?
\015\012Lithium Ion batteries are 1.2volts
\015\012Alkaline are are 1.5volts
\015\012Rechargeable Alkaline batteries are 1.5volts

\015\012Perhaps you should switch to Rechargeable Alkaline batteries if the symptom goes away when you use alkaline batts...

My Sigma SD9 rapidly drains battery power; and I don't mean over a short period of time, but over a few minutes. Regardless of new or fresh rechargeable batteries, the drainage is frustratingly consistent. Have had the camera quit responding regardless of 3 sets of AA rechargeables, or non-rechargeables with more than 3/4 capacity left installed within 45 minutes of my last attempt to use this camera at a Botanical garden close to where I live. Other than junk it is there a way to solve this

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 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?
