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

Drained Batteries I am having a battery problem with my A75, which is my first digital camera. The camera has gone through 2 sets of brand new alkaline batteries since I've had it. I have taken only two photos. I've mostly only turned it on a few times to fool around with it and to try to learn the different functions. The most recent batteries where drained after sitting in the camera for two weeks and taking no photos. Basically, brand new batteries drained after two weeks of no use. The Ca

I have a relatively new camera. The battery seems to keep draining way faster than other cameras I have had. i.e. took about 70 pictures and it drained. Do I have to constantly recharge it?

I have Vivitar 3900 flash that has not been used for several years. It will not run on batteries, due to excess current drain. If connected to a 5-7 volt power supply, the drain goes over .5 amps. The main capacitor (350 ufd @ 400 volts charges to 300 volts and when the flash is turned off holds a charge. Any suggestions for repair?
The capacitor needs to be 're-formed'. Briefly, run through several charge/discharge cycles. ... Vivitar Digital Cameras
Battery Drain Why do the batteries in my Kodak DX4900 almost immediately drain down? It sits on the camera dock almost all the time while it is off. It happened while using the rechargable and now also AA.

Battery Drain I have a constant 70ma drain from thebatteries when turned off. I insert the plug into the external 5vdc to disconect the batteries from the camera and this splves the problem. I now find that the time and date have to be entered or just press OK for the camera to operate. Is there a second internal battery for the clock alone. Thank you Richard

Pink image I seem to have faulty sensors on my ixus 500. I get a pink image from time to time, but the frequesncy increases. Last year the canon agent repaired it for free, but iI didn't expect it to be faulty again in 12 months
