Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
I have used my camera for 1 wk took 24 pictures and have changed the batteries twice--why I am going through so many batteries?
You haven't told us what camera you have so this is a generic answer. If your camera uses ordinary batteries, be sure they are alkaline. If it can use rechargeables, get a couple of sets and always keep a set charged.

Battery Problem I bought a Nikon Coolpix L12 Digital Camera this past summer and have had no problem until last night. My camera turned off and said "battery exhausted." After changing the batteries twice with new batteries, the lens would open for a second then close and the camera turned off once again saying "battery exhausted." I don't know what happened. I had same problem. No matter how many times I have changed batteries, It works for a second then closes with signal saying "warning batt

BATTERY DISCHARGE I have an Olympus FE 210 Digital Camera and had been using the same for over 3 months. Recently I observed a problem in the same. When I put the camera on, I can browse on the LCD screen and can see the snaps available in the memory. However, when I try to click a new snap, before the flash could pick up, the LCD screen trurns blue and starts showing the signal "BATTERY EMPTY". I changed many sets of new batteries but the problem continues. I am not able to use the camera for c
This is the worst camera I have ever owned. There is nothing wrong with your batteries. The Battery Empty sign lights up even when I know they are full. It happens all the time with mine. I believe it to be the contacts in the battery compartment. Wh ... Olympus FE-210 Digital Camera

Remove from camera and change their position, i.e. what was + make - in the appropriate slot. It then works again, until next time! Looks like a contact problem but I don't know where to go with it.

Battery/power-up problem Camera will not stay powered up. The "low battery" indicator shows up on the display, and then it shuts off shortly thereafter. I've tried many combinations of AA batteries to make sure it wasn't really a low battery problem. I have not used any of the batteries Sony warns against in their manual (e.g. Manganese, etc.). Any ideas before I go look for a new camera? Thanks in advance for your help. MG

Rollei dp 6200 - I have problems with trying to charge the battery. It rapidly loses the charge - within a copule of hours one third of the charge is lost and within 24 - 36 hours it is completely falt. This ia all without using the camera. I have changed the memory card as Rollei Service told me that the camera does not support 1GB, but even with 512MB it is the same. This has been going on for a couple of years at least and the original camera was replaced by Rollei within the first two years

A few months ago my camera started having problems. no matter how many times i change the batteries, the camera still will not turn on and when it does it flashes a quick image and then the screen goes black and it dies without taking in the lens!!! i am very VERY careful with it and have never dropped it, so i do not understand why it is not working! the Camera is only a year old and i have used it quite a few times and it has never had a problem until now.

Canon PowerShot A495 - Brand new. Used it once and took 40 photos. It then told me to change the batteries which I did. From then on it keeps saying "change the batteries" I've used alkalines and also rechargeable NiMH, These are either new or fully recharged batteries and still I get the same message. I have also cleaned the terminals inside the camera and even those on the batteries themselves. No change. This is clearly not a battery problem. This is a camera problem and its seems I am not th

Batteries This camera has been the worst digital camera I have ever used. The pic quality is fine. The ease of use is fine. The problem lies in the battery longevity. Maybe that is not even the right description. I will put in new batteries and only use my camera for a short time. The next time I go to use the camera it is not at all uncommon for it to not turn on. Even though it has new batteries and was not left on, the batteries are dead. It happens with the rechargeable as well as re

Kodak C813 This is my fifth one (yes I go through a LOT of cameras) and have not had anything but praise for this inexpensive alternative; love that it takes videos and photos BUT without any major changes to my hardware, suddenly it is not recognized and I cannot upload the photos I have taken over the past week. I use this as a business tool as I rescue and rehome domestic animals. This is really frustrating. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Easy Share software twice now, have tried go

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 ?

Camera hangs I cannot use the camera, every time I open it the screen is blank and the green light is lit on and cannot turn it off, there are times that I can use it but can only take only one snapshot and the camera hangs. I even removed the small battery a CR1220 and return it so I have to adjust the time setting, as I change it the camera hangs also. I'm using a NiMH battery.
Well done ! It sound like a bad contacts issue. ... Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

Z612 will not format an SD card... 1GB??? Also battery life is very short... have used Kodak battery and a LENMAR DLK8000. And more... lens does not extend when camera turned on!

I used a NEW Kodak and a LENMAR and have been for 2 years... why issues now at the end of my extended warranty with Best Buy????

My fujifilm finepix f480 is brand new and i've only used it about 4 times. Without any incident to start a problem, the charger stopped working and the camera wont turn on at all with the battery in it. The charger light will go on for about 2 minutes and then turn off, and the camera light wont go on at all with the battery in it...is this the camera or the battery or the charger?
Looks to me as charger issue. Digi cam dont work if battery is very low... forget about flash. Also check the input voltage for charger as it should be compatible with power supply at your home. ... Fuji Digital Cameras
