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

Put new batteries in my wildview cam works for a second than stops


Rechargeable or one use type batteries?
Could be it was a faulty pack.
If recharge type did you give them their first charge for around 24 hours?
Always use Alkaline or Lithium Ion single use batteries.
If rechargeables always use a high number mah rating; 3.2s will go down quick, 8. (whatever it is) will sustain.
If none of these help try Technical Support on the website of your camera's manufacturer.

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.

It Needs a Lithium battery- only lithiums have the density to cope with the demand - no need to buy expensive Olympus Originals

S40 Battery problem


Alkaline batteries are not capable of outputting the level of power required for your camera to operate. Your daughter's camera may have lower requirements and be able to function properly using alkaline batteries. Your standard alkaline battery outputs about 700 milliamps of power when they are brand new. A rechargeable NiMH battery can range from 1200 to 2700 or even 3200 milliamps max power output depending on the quality of the battery. Most compact digital cameras that accept AA style batteries are designed for these high-output rechargeables and will not function for very long even on fresh Alkaline batteries.
