Question about Cameras
It sounds as if you are addressing a specific person with this problem have you chatted with someone about this problem before? No matter I guess. New rechargeable batteries "normally" require recharging when you first buy them for about 2 hours some more. There are new types that retain 80% of their charge for up to a year so you sort of need to know if the battery has power in it before installing in the camera. What I do is test them but I have the ways and means of doing this, what you can do is put the batteries in a small flash light and turn it on. If it's a bright white light they are good a dim amber is poor. Another thing is the correct position of the battery in the chamber if one is in wrong then the camera will not work. Another thing to look for is to see if the battery contacts are corroded. It might appear as a white powder or the contact could be blackened. if this is the case those contacts need to be cleaned and cleaned well be fore contact can be reestablished again. Lots to look for but all this you can do yourself without a repair person.
