Samsung L83T fully charged but beeps 3 times and switches off? The screen doesn't come on at all, and the low battery message does not show. Shop said it could be a circuit problem & not economically viable? What do you think? The battery is charging normally and the lead light goes green. I have removed the replaced the card. I can take pictures off the card so it seems ok. Is it time for a new one?.

Camera turns on normally. But when I push to take a picture, the screen goes black and it turns itself off. Tried recharging batteries and it helped a bit. But the battery charge only lasted a very short time. This doesn't seem like the typical low-battery that I've always seen with this camera.

Kodak M763. Display works all right if I review photos already taken, but there is usually no display when I try to take a picture. It's black. It may be that, if the battery is fully charged, I may see a display in a sepia tone or a bluish overcast. The information on the screen is bright, it's the viewfinder image that can't be seen. It would have helped me if I could turn it on while its charging, but I can't. That would have solved te question of a low-voltage electrical input. If a subject

Have a Coolpix s60. Worked fine until the other day...when the camera is turned on everything works fine but the viewfinder. Instead of seeing the object it is pointed at the screen is black. All the touch controls on either side are visable and the telephoto and wide funtions work and it will take a pictre. Everything seems to work fine except that you cannot see what you are taking a photo of? The battery is fully charged.

I changed the batteries in my Power Shot A720 IS recently when the low battery warning flashed, and had taken only two photos when the warning flashed again. I moved the mode switch to playback and the screen went dark "Change batteries now" appeared. I turned off the camera, set the mode switch to shooting, turned the camera back on and was able to take two more photos before the low battery warning returned and prevented any more picture taking. I purchased and installed new batteries and f

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it.

Olympus FE-270 Hello, my daughter dropped her Olympus FE-270 and it won't work properly ow. It seems to take photos indoors but if you take an outdoor photo the screen turns white like it's over exposed and now when you turn the power button on the lens moves in and out but then it turns itself off. I have tried recharging the batteries to test if the problem is with the batteries, but it makes no difference. It's about 6 months old, do you think it can be repaired? Thanks Robyn

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

I have a Fuji Finepix F45 camera. After taking a photo the screen shows a badly blurred image. Same applies if I load the memory card into my PC. The image has wavy lines. I have tried recharging the l-ion battery. replacing the battery with a new charged battery, & replacing the XD card to no avail. I suspect that the charger may be defective. However the camera does show the battery as being fully charged. After spending £25 on a new battery I am reluctant to spend £30 on a new charger wh

Camera's about 2 years old. With a fully charged battery it will take about 8 to 10 photos and then the battery indicates total discharge. How ever, if the camera is turned off for several minutes and then back on it will again take several pictures and but then again shows that the battery is totally discharged. I have tried installing a new "out of the box" battery in the camera but I still get the same sequence of events. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated

Olympus x-840 digital camera. Hi, there is a problem with the battery life; fully charged batteries seem to be exhausted after only a dozen or so pictures. The battery indicator plunging from a full set of greens to a single red and then the camera refusing to turn on. Then after taking the batteries out and re-inserting them everything seems fine again for the next few shots - and then the same cycle of events plays out again...

The best solution is to buy NiMh batteries 2300 mA or greater 2500 mA to 2700 mA and so I have no more problems with this excellent Olympus x 840 camera. In Belgium i have payed a little more than 50 euro for the batteries and the charger. ... Digital Cameras

Battery/Power trouble My C-770 is 2 years old and I still have the original L1-10B batterys that came with it. The camera goes through periods of non-use so has not been used excessively. When I put in a newly charged battery the battery indicator says the battery is full, but then take one picture and the light blinks empty and usually dies with the lens out and the ISO numbers still on the screen. I switch the power button into the off position but it generally takes a min before it actuall

My Nikon Coolpix 4600 will take 1 photo, then refuses to take anymore unless it's turned off and then turned back on. When first turned on the flash and AF LEDs go on. After 1 photo is taken, the flash and AF LEDs won't come on. Pressing the shutter release does nothing. There are no alerts or other red indicators on the screen. The batteries are new.

I visited a brick-and-mortar camera store and asked a repair specialist. There I learned that the problem with my camera is a firmware problem and not worth fixing. I'll throw away the camera and buy another $150 disposable camera. ... Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera

No power I purchased a Canon 400D about a year ago and shortly afterwards the camera suddenly gave up on me. I took a couple of photos and then nothing. The battery was fully charged and the power light came on when the camera was switched on and remained on even when the camera was switched off. I was going to take the camera in to a service centre a few weeks later for repairs but when I switched the cameraon again, the problem seemed to have disappeared. Since then I have been taking photos w

Every time I turn on my Canon A540 Powershot I get the black date/time screen. The date/time is all zero (the photo properties default to 1 Jan 1980) and I have to either enter the date/time or press Func/Set to clear the screen. Whichever option I take.. the same thing happens every time. Is there a way to make the date/time "stick"? I first noticed the problem when one set of batteries was low.. but new batteries didn't solve it. Any ideas? Camera doesn't have a lot of miles..

Error When taking a photo the shutter does a double take but does not register the photo info. A "err" is then indicated on the display. This is a intermittent fault and continuous efforts allows a normal picture to be taken. If the camera in held upside down it then functions normal. Have tried a reset, newly charged batteries and different lenses but to no avail. This also occurs within all settings
