Camera works for a very while, but quickly senses low battery and shuts down. Won't work more than a couple of pictures with 2300mAh rechargeables, maybe 10 pictures with alkaline. Seems oversensitive to...


Something, it sounds like, is draining the batteries. Rechargeables are a lower voltage, and don't last as long as alkalines, but the alkalines should give you at least a couple hundred pics (depending on how much the flash and zoom is used, camera turning on and off, etc.). A camera tech might know the likely cause, but get an estimate before getting it repaired. The cost of service is often more than the replacement cost of a new camera, as they are getting cheaper by the day, almost! Good luck, sorry I can't help any more than that.

Won't take pictures


I would suggest the first thing do is to replace the batteries with new ones. It sounds as though the batteries are low (perhaps they won't charge fully anymore) and that is why your camera is switching off.

It is always worth trying the simple things first :)

If this doesn't work and your camera still won't switch on please post back.

Powers on, lens extends, 3 beeps, lens closes, camera turns off


Try doing a couple of things.

1) remove and digital media cards.
2) turn the camera on and delete any pictures that may be stored in the camera memory (not on a removeable card)
3) remove the batteries for 60 seconds
4) replace the batteries without the media card and lay the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointing up (5) The lens should retract.
6) Turn off the camera
7) replace the media card and turn on.

I think the camera was getting hung up on the pictures stored in the camera's memory.

TIPS:
1.)NEVER PUSH THE LENS IN AFTER CAMERA DIES, BUY A NEW BATTERY IMMEDIATLY AND TURN IT BACK ON, CLOSING THE LENS!

2.)NEVER USE AN AC ADAPTER, USE A RECHARGEABLE BATTERY OR A REGULAR BATTERY!

..to fix this...

Do as i say..

1.) Remove battery
2.) Remove front plate (screw driver may be needed)
3.) Check all gears, make sure they are correctly fitted in place)
4.) Move the gear manually to make the lens come out.
5.) keep it out, put the front plate back together.
6.) reinsert the battery, turn it on.


or...
1.) Remove the battery.
2.) Wait about 6-8 hours.
3.) Reinsert the battery.

or...
1.) Remove the battery.
2.) Try hooking it up through AC adapter, put correct voltage.
3.) Try turning it on.
4.) Remove AC adapter, reinsert battery.
5.) Turn it on.
If nothing happens just tell me..

Hope this may help;

Regards,

Turns Off


Hey MaryKing,
I would first try taking out the batteries and waiting a couple of minutes and reinserting them, and if this doesn't work I would try a new set of batteries (battery manufacturers' sometimes do make faulty products). The next thing you could try is cleaning the battery contacts with a soft dry clean clothe. If you can access your set up menu there is a reset option that resets the camera to the manufactures default settings. If none of these options work I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
