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

My sony cyber-shot DSC-H55 worked great until recently. It won't turn on or ANYTHING. I had to buy a replacement charger since during my move I lost it. It says that it is compatable with my battery but even after charging, (the charger even says the battery is charged) it won't turn on, the play button even won't turn work! It hasn't been dropped and I've only used it like 4 times since I bought it! HELP!!!

Even with new batteries, the screen says batteries exhausted on Coolpix L18. Sometimes by switching the position of the batteries, it turns on. (I'm not talking about changing the polarity...just changing location. Today, when I got it to turn on briefly 1 time, it said the card couldn't be used, even though I've used that card before.

My nikon L18 used to work with regular Alkaline batteries and could take many pictures, but I left the batteries in for a month or so and now it always says I have exhausted batteries, even with new batteries. Did I ruin the battery sensor or something?

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.

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. What's the problem? Occasionally I may get to take 1 or 2 pictures before this happens, usually none. Seems to be a prevalent problem with this particular camera. This is my 2nd Canon and I'm pretty sure there won't be a third. Canon should recall these cameras and either fix them or give a reduction on a

The battery is run down every time I come to use the camera. So it seems to bleed out power even when turned off. I have replaced the original battery and the new battery also runs out while sitting turned off. Is this a SONY generic problem or is there some item that is "on" and draining power.
This is no solution, just a confirmation that james is not the only one with this problem. The camera automatically turns itself off after five minutes if you forget to. Mine has the same problem james has. Batteries drain off while sitting (some ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 Digital Camera

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

I have a brand new Nikon coolpix s3000. This is my first time attempting to uplaod the pictures to my computer. My camera has been saying that the battery is exhausted all day, so i figured if i plugged it into my PC using the provided USB chord, it would charge my camera and upload the content. However, my camera is not responding atall. Its not flashing any lights or even being recognized by my PC. How can i fix this problem?

There's not much you can do about the problem because the problem is inside the camera. A faulty component is probably the cause. (I think its receiving more or less that the needed amount of power so that's the error with compatibility)If stil ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera
Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks

Battery Problems The Canon PowerShot A480 is sucking the life out of the batteries! I get about half a dozen shots and it says I need new batteries - I change to fully-charged ones and as soon as I put them in they are almost gone (that icon is flashing at me).
