Re: Camera turns off

1. Try the camera with a different CF card. 2. Try the camera with a different battery. Defective components don't always fail in expected ways. The battery might have enough power to "sometimes" operate some functions but not consistently. The CF card may be malfunctioning is some way that draws too much power from the camera & at times causes it to "lock-up" or shut down. If you don't have another battery or CF to try, you may be able to bring your camera into a camera store where they may have & let you try 1 of each on your camera to see if it fixes the problem. They may do this in the hopes of selling you either a new battery, CF or camera depending on which proves defective.

Just purchased a finepix s1800 and fitted new batterys but it wont turn on . can anyone help. thanks nige

Many times these digital camera require photo lithium batteries or rechargeables. I recommend you Purchase these first and try it out. Many times the standard household batteries just do not have enough power to turn on digital cameras. If you are still experiencing problems after new batteries then return back to store for another camera because that model may have a problem.

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get...

The Stylus Tough-3000 can be submerged up to 10 feet underwater and incorporates four preset underwater scene modes as well as the ability to capture HD movies underwater. It can also withstand a five-foot drop and can still perform when the temperature dips well below freezing (14 degrees Fahrenheit; -10 degrees Celsius)
1. Remove the SIM card , battery, and ensure that your camera is dry 2. reinstall the sim, battery, and if the battery has not been charged or is known to be used, please replace for a new one. 3. Start up your Camera and attempt to take a photo now without using any of the video features. If your still not registering your photos, return for continued assistance.

Sony DSC H5 runs down batteries very rapidly. Much faster than when the camera was originally purchased. A pair of new AA batteries only lasts for 12 - 24 photos. Brand new rechargeables fully charged are...

Hi there please reset the camera 1st . THen pair your battery with your camera. Go in menu then battery type option. Select the type of a battery. After that save the setting. Now try . If you face the same problem then the camera internal power transformer are damaged or week. So you need to replace that transformer after that it will start work properly. You use that camera so long, that's why there is a chance of that damaged. Thanks if its helpful then rating me.

CAMARA turns off when i press to take a photo

I have the same camera... and it was doing the same thing AFTER i changed my old batteries, because they were getting low. It was only after i put in the NEW batteries that i had this problem... I tried putting the old batteries back in and sure enough it worked again, so it probably all just depends on the brand of the battery you use.

Camera keeps turning off

Digital cameras are very Voltage Sensitive. Using Nicad or NiMh batteries will not only , "Not" solve the problems above but will
actually aggravate the above problems for one reason.

Rechargable NiCad or NiMh batteries only produce 1.2 volts fully charged and will only give you 2.4 volts when used in pairs with this camera. This falls below the cameras desired 2.8 - 3.0 voltage requirement and will only result in about 30-40 pictures at most.

This camera requires a constant 2.8 - 3.2 volts to run properly. Kodak won't tell you this !!The camera was designed with Oxy Akaline batteries in mind.New alkalines will produce 3.2 to 3.4 volts in pairs but only for a short period of time.The issue with the Oxy Alkaline batteries is that they simply will not last very long in this camera due to its power requirements.

But there is a really great solution to the problem . You can purchase a CRV3 rechargeable Li-ion battery that fits right into this camera.
You will get a realistic 180-250 photos per charge.The Li-Ion battery maintains a constant 3.0 volts for a very long period of time
and will allow the camera to function the way Kodak originally intended it to and can be recharged. You will find rechargable CRV3 battery kits on ebay or other online battery stores at a very reasonable cost.

You can also use a Lithium Non rechargeable CRV3 battery that will give approx 250-300 photos per battery but you may
find non rechargeable Lithium batteries cost prohibitive.

I use the rechargeable Li-ION Battery exclusively in this camera and it functions perfectly since I switched. I have a pair
of CRV3 Li-Ion batteries so I always have a fully charge CRV3 ready to go.

For reference I was only able to get about 30 pictures with the high capacity 2800 Mah Rechargeable NiMH Batteries I used prior
to using the LI-ION Battery. I get on average about 175 pictures per full charge from the LI-ION Battery.

Have to go through settings at each camera start

If you take ur batteries out for more than 15 minutes your going to have to do those settings each time. If it does it while you still have batteries in I would first take the mem card out and then format the internal memory. Then I would reset the camera before finally putting the mem card back in.
