    Hi,

    -no easy way to tell you, but this camera chews through batteries very,
    very, very quickly...it is not compatible with rechargeables...(not
    enough amps)

    Wow... thanks for the feedback! So, I guess that means Im basically screwed with it? LOL! Or is there another solution? Thanks again....

  • unikornlove Nov 16, 2008

    Thanks; I really DO appriciate the honest feed-back. Far as I kow,you didnt make the camera, so why should I be mad at you! :-). Im going to try and contact the company, and see where that takes me. I had fault in getting it to though; I should have checked it out more. Thats probably why that guy sold it to me so cheap! Thanks again, and have a blessed week!

    Well, I was reading one of the other threads, and it was saying the battery lasts longer if you turn the LCD off. How is that done?

Hi again
-glad to read you can LOL in spite of being told the camera is going to consume more $ on batteries than you do on food! :)

-that was why I told you in the 'clarification' screen....verses the 'solution' screen....as most people do not take kindly to being told this type of info....so many 'experts' do NOT respond at all, so as not to risk a poor rank..
-unfortunately, from all approaches to your problem that I see...perhaps the best 'solution' is to 'cut your loses and do something creative with your camera...

-the only good news is that you you did not get a dud unit...as both the camera and the company appear to create universally instantly disposable products :(
-a great # of other owners have the same position (see link below)

-so anyway, perhaps you would Rank my 'solution'...but please understand that anything other than a FIX-YA actually lowers my rank, so please do not 'shoot the messenger'...as I didn't design the system...nor the rank system, but please consider the impact of your rank...as I have spent some time trying to 'help ya!'
.again....sorry about the news

Vtech Kidizoom camera. Have changed batteries but unit is not even switching on. Son has had for just over a year and it has been dropped several times.


Try cleaning the battery contacts inside the battery compartment. Do this with a cotton swab "dampened" in rubbing alcohol. You may also want to clean the battery contacts and the charging station if so equipt. Thanks, Dana
