I have a Casio Watch module #1189. It is a digital alarm chronograph. The battery went dead while sitting in a drawer for many months -maybe a couple years! So I replaced it with the same battery #CR2016. Now it still has no display. I double-checked the polarity and it is correct. I took the battery out and then replaced it several times.

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

With new batteries, Canon PowerShot SX120IS camera does not operate - ie- no power. Have tried several new batteries, cleaned terminals, etc. but no luck. Camera has been protected during recent cross country driving trip, not dropped, worked fine. Now - nothing.

When I try to transfer pics from the FE-170 to my Mac (as I have done before) it says the camera is not connected. The camera shuts off when I plug it in, which makes me think it's the batteries; I guess it could also be the cable. Are cables easy to replace? Should I be using lithium batteries, instead of generic double A's?
Having gone over a month without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader solved the problem. ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
Battery drain My 520 has become hypersensitive to "low" batteries. Didn't use to be. Rechargeable or not, I will get 'replace battery' message on batteries that test way in the green on my tester.

I have a Canon 40D and have never replaced the original lithium battery as someone told me that rechargeable Li - ion batteries don't have a lifespan. My picture quality isn't what it use to be and the autofocus seems slow. Is this a battery issue, lens issue or what? I keep my lenses clean but have never had it serviced. The camera is about 4 yrs old. Thanks in advance for your help! :)

I've had my camera for about 3 years now and have never had any problems until a couple of weeks ago. When I turned the camera on, it forced me to reset date/time and would occasionally show aperture 00 and not take a picture. Turning the camera off and then on again, or removing and replacing the battery temporarily took care of the problem. Now I am getting the ERR 01 and can not take pics at all, regardless of which lens I use or whether I am using the IS option. I've tried cleaning the c
