Question about Canon EOS-20D Digital Camera with 17-85mm Lens

2 Answers

Dead Batteries I shoot with a 20D and the battery pack, but before I bought the 2nd rechargeable, I put in AA's. When I put them in, it shows full battery charge. Then the next day or so when I turn the camera on, the batteries show dead. Twice now. What's going on? Anybody have a clue? Thanks in advance.

Solution. Take AA battery cage. Throw it in the trash. Buy 3-4 3rd party BP511A's. Problem solved. AA's don't work well, or essentially at all with the battery pack. It will get you a couple of shots, but avoid it at all cost. Oh and the circuitry issue doesn't have to do with the AA's, it is with other issues.

AA's only last for 30-40 shots and should only be used as a very last option.

Motorolla walkie talkie shuts off when PTT button is pressed... Driving me INSANE. Please help


This is usually a low battery issue. If you are using the rechargeable battery pack, does your Motorola unit accept regular batteries in place of the rechargeable battery? If you can put in 3 or 4 AA batteries (depending on the model), try that. If the radio stays on when you press the PTT button, then continue using the regular batteries or get a replacement rechargeable battery, if you can find one for the model. If the radio still turns off when you press the PTT button with fresh batteries, then replace the two-way radio.

I hope this helps. When the rechargeable batteries fail, they will still charge but they won't hold a full charge for as long a period.

I got a dx4530 w/easyshare Dock II. from a friend of mine. He had been using AA batteries and it worked fine. I went to Best Buy and bought 2 Ni-MH batteries and put them in the camera. I then put the...


In the Kodak cameras of that vintage the original 3V rechargeable battery was made of 2 regular AA rechargeable batteries and a special piece of plastic that pushes some microswitch in the battery compartment. If this piece of plastic is missing, the dock would not charge the batteries. You either need the special CRV3 battery or to charge the normal AA rechargeables with a separate charger.

I just bought a Nikon coolpix 3000 yesterday and I pluged for charging 6:30Am this morning. However the charge light is still blinking now(4:00Pm)Is this something wrong??


Hi,

There is a possibility that the lithium batteries are dead and won't charge up. You can go out and purchase 4 AA rechargeable batteries and put them in the battery pack and see if they will charge up.

If you still get a problem with the camera not charging, take the camera back and have it replaced.

NOTE: rechargeable batteries lose their life after a short while so it is a good idea to carry spares around with you.


Regards.
