Batery problem it eats the battery very soon
This usually occurs when the camera is exposed to water, sweat, high humidity or if you had leaky alkaline batteries. You have 2 choices to try. 1 take the camera apart and use an old toothbrush with WD40 and scrub the circiut board, you can inspect the battery compartment to see if you have corrosion from leaky batteries and do the above to fix. 2 use the camera as is and remove the batteries after each use.

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?
Ugh. I have the EXACT same problem!!!!! It's extreamly annoying. When I turn my camera on it turns on, you see the polaroid screen, and theres this buzzing sound? and then it turns off. I'm so frustrated and don't know what to do. Should I take it in ... Polaroid T737 Digital Camera
Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later. I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co

Batteries need replaced constantly. I am using 2 AA alkaline as instructed. As soon as I put them in it says batteries are low and shuts off. This is happening with all brands of new batteries.

Battery Problem I was given an SD9 last month and so far like it except for some battery issues. Using fresh AA's it will often give me the 'low battery' warning as soon as they are loaded. I bought the CRV3's thinking that would solve it, it did initially, but after about 40 shots I took them out, tried some new AA's and again the low battery warning... replaced them with the CRV3's again, low battery (surely they were not run out after 40 shots?!) Everything is fine using power cable... but

My 'PowerShot A1100 IS' is not responding anymore when i put fresh AA batteries in. As soon as I turn on the camera, it says battery low, and will not take pictures. I did not have this problem with it previously. I have owned this camera for about 2 months and this has started happening approx a couple of weeks ago. Could this camera be defective? I have not yet used lithium batteries, and the camera previously worked well on regular AA batteries.

I have a Canon Powershot A540. It literally eats batteries. I actually bought a second set of rechargable batteries because I thought the first set might be bad. I put in newly charged batteries that I know should be completely charged, take between 2-4 pictures and it will be showing that the battery is already low. My sister has the same camera and the same problem.

My Fuji A700 simply eats up batteries,it has got to a point where I am only able to download 20 pictures with a BRAND NEW SET OF BATTERIES. It was as consumptive with rechargeable versions. I understand this is a common problem that makes the camera unuseable, obviously it is simply not up to the job, they are not exactly eco friendly at that rate of power consumption and subsequent disposal of the dead batteries.

It looks brand new and the seller had everything that came with it originally including the original box.So far, I have been extremely disappointed with it.
