I hate to say it but some cameras are batter eaters. no matter what you do or how many photos you take the batteries run down all the time. (I had a cannon camera that did this) My fix for this problem was to always carry extra batteries with me. My problem sort of fixed itself as the LCD on the back of the camera stopped working and the camera wouldn't stay on after that.

Some cameras will let you turn off the LCD screen when you are using the camera and that would most likely help but that takes all the fun out of using a digital camera.

Good luck

Battery failure indications


Following are a few reasons that indicates a battery failure:
  • The usable time after recharging is shortened.
  • The battery becomes unusually warm during a recharge cycle.
  • The battery becomes unusually warm during phone use.
  • The battery case often is swollen. This is detectable by feeling and viewing the inside/phone-side of the battery case. Also, when the battery is placed inside/phone-side down on a flat, smooth surface, it will rock and will sustain a spin motion. The case of a healthy battery is flat and will not sustain a spin motion.
  • The battery develops a hard spot. This is detectable on the inside/phone-side surface of the battery by gently pinching about the surface between one's fingers.

My hp pavilion dv4 laptop's battery cannot sustain even for 1 hour.please give some ideas to maintain the battery and is there any remedy for this issue.Also which is better among, using laptop always...


If the battery appears to be charging, the drop in the time it sustains power is likely due to a faulty or old battery. Eventually it will appear 100% charged and drop to zero in 5 minutes or less. I would think you need to replace the battery.

If you want to maintain the battery properly, it is best to remove it once fully charged and use on ac power alone. If using the laptop on battery, remove the AC connection and allow the battery to fully discharge before recharging it ( there is some debate on this method, other may disagree)

How to switch on flash on my praktica slimpix 5200


On the 5240 similar model you press the right hand navigation button on the back of the camera. It has a flash symbol engraved on it but not very clear on mine. The screen goes blank as if nothing happens but it is charging the flash and with fresh batteries will come back in 5sec or so. Then when you shoot it will flash, and there will be a flash symbol showing on the screen.....Press again to alter to fixed rather than auto flash, and again to turn off.

CAMERA MAKES THREE BEEPS AND THEN TURNS OFF LENS WONT RETRACT


Try lithium ion or rechargable batteries (maH > 2500). Alkalines (regular duracell/energizer) have trouble powering many digital cameras since they cannot sustain the amount power output necessary.

Praktica slimpix battery doesn't charge,usb connections ok,green light comes on on camera,but goes out as soon as i disconnected usb lead.


That is correct. The camera does not recharge the batteries. If you are using rechargeable batteries then you also need a compatible battery charger for the batteries you are using.
