Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks

Shuts off My camera shuts off in the middle of taking pictures. There are no low battery warning lights, new batteries (and even replaced those with new ones) but the problem is still the same.

I have a Fuji FinePix A345. It is out of warranty. I put freshly-charged batteries in, take one or two pics, then get a low batter-reading, followed by the camera shutting off power. I took batteries out, checked them on a battery tester, and they both still had a full charge (2500 mAh), but camera won't even turn on. I was just reading consumer reviews on the A345 advertising page. Apparently this model can be a real lemon. Anything I can do to fix the camera? Or do I just toss it and bu

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.

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

Low battery I have a FinePix S9500 digital camera which is in great condition (virtually brand new) but is basically useless. Despite using the appropriate fully charged batteries, the display constantly indicates low battery. I manage to get out one or two shots and then it shuts down altogether. This is very frustrating as you cannot count on the camera working at all. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Or is there a particular brand of battery that works for this model.
