Having problems with your Sanyo Digital Cameras ?
It says to charge the battery and then discharge the battery before use. What does the term discharge mean.
Discharge means run the battery down until it needs charging again. I don't understand why the camera would say this. You can't use a battery when it is discharged.

Battery life My AA 3000mah batteries don't last 30 mins before the camera switches itself off, indicating that the batteries are flat. When tested on a multimeter they read 1.24volts. The manual say I should get 300 shots using 2500mah batteries. The batteries have been discharged and charged up many times but still the same problem. I'm using Nimh type batteries that read 1.35v full charge and 1.24v when the camera shuts off. Is this a common fault with this camera ?

My Canon SD950is camera asks me to submit time/date info every time I turn on the camera. The manual says this means the internal battery is depleted and needs to be recharged. I have a fully charged battery on board and still get the message. Any ideas?

Dead battery? I have been searching everywhere for help on this problem and so far, no luck! My camera will turn on but as soon as it does, it shuts itself off again. The lens is stuck in zoom mode and won't retract. I tried charging the battery but every time I try, it will only charge for about 5 minutes and then says the charge is full. Is this a problem with the battery? Charger? Or is the battery fine and it's a problem with the camera? Any suggestions?

My camera fell down in the water. I didn't put it on until such time that arrived home. My husband opened it and removed the sand from the sides of the camera. It was just basically cleaned. However, everytime I would use it, it will only last for a few minutes then it would say "Battery empty". I've tried different cables already to charge it and even the universal charger but still it won't. No word that would say charging will come out. I am not also sure if its the battery or the camera that

When I leave the fully charged battery in the camera for about 10 days it gets completely discharged. This is the original Nikon battery. I though the battery is old and bought a genuine Nikon battery. The issue is the same. My relatives have Nikon D200, D70s etc and they do not have these issues and the battery if left in camera last for more than 6 or many more weeks.

I am looking for the specs on your dbc-6 aa/aaa battery charger. Does it shut off when batteries are charged or does it just run a specified length of time.

My LI42 battery won't charge for my Olympus 790 SW. The charging light comes on, then flashes, then turns off within about a minute. The battery does not charge at all during this time. My manual does not say anything about a flashing light on the charger and I can't figure out if my battery is the problem or my charger.
Problem is most likely the battery. Try getting a new battery of the same specifications and see. That is the cheaper option. If that still does not work, then it could be the charger. ... Olympus Digital Cameras
