Tip & How-To about Cameras
If your digital camera shuts off sporadically or begins to malfunction, the fix could be as simple as replacing your batteries!
I was using AA rechargeable batteries when my camera starting acting up. My husband suggested that the batteries might be bad. While they were not new, they had only taken about 20 recharges over the years. I mistakenly thought they'd last for hundreds of charges despite age. As it turns out, rechargeable batteries have a shelf life.
Also, I had been storing my rechargeable batteries in the camera between uses. Remember, it is wise to remove any type of battery from the device if it will not be used for an extended period. This should help to extend the life cycle of your batteries.
Result: Upon installation of new, freshly-charged rechargeable batteries, my camera worked perfectly.
