How old are your batteries? Overtime and after multiple charges,  rechargeable batteries loose capacity and will ultimately not hold a charge at all. Try a new set of batteries and see if that helps.

When using the flash is takes 4/5 seconds before I can take another picture. The taken photo appears for about 1 second then the screen goes black for 4/5 seconds before I can take another picture


Friend,

You are using a 10 MP camera. Imagine the size of the picture taken. It is massive. And so would the size in megabytes. To save those many MBs is a time consuming affair. that is what takes 4 to 5 seconds. And during that time the camera can do nothing else.

Do not worry. The camera is fine. Just that you have a very good camera and do not realize it.

As regards the photo being visible for a second only, you can change the settings and have the picture on display for a longer duration. That would be fine as while you are viewing the pic, the camera is busy saving the pic file. You would not feel those 4 to 5 seconds at all.

1995 dodge stratus keeps going dead in driveway. I jump it off and let it run 15 mins to charge battery up. Turn off and crank right up, but the next day it is dead again.


With engine running used a voltmeter and check voltage at battery, you will be checking alternator out put voltage, should have a reading of no less then 13.0 volts, if less bad alternator, the reason it keeps going dead is that the car is using the battery to run it .till the battery has no more power, then you jump it and the battery is charge up again and will run again till it goes dead again.

3 month old new phone. samsung tocco lite. battery problem


1) faulty battery - you'd need to get a replacement from the manufacturer (should be free if still under warranty)
2) when you initially charged the battery after purchasing, if you used it at all before it was completely charged it won't hold a charge.
3) if you live or travel in mountain area, phones lose battery power quicker due to an increase in elevation and distance from nearest tower.
4) if phone has been exposed to moisture or direct sunlight for an extended amount of time, it can damage the phone's ability to hold a charge.

honestly, your best bet is to replace the battery & allow it to charge for 24 hours in "off mode". if the problem persists, then send it in to be repaired.

The charge in my milli cancdle power light lastsat the most 3-5 m


Your problem is almost certainly a bad battery. The fact that it lights for 3 to 5 min after each recharge indicates that the charger is good, and the battery wont take or hold a charge. That is my guess. Batteries Inc stores carry these batteries and are very helpful they also have a website: www.batteries-inc.com

Camera swicthes off when taking a photo


ru sure that u havent hit the power button & also make sure that the batteries are fully charged?
make sure its not cheap batteries or use rechargables sometimes cheap 1s dont have enough power
i use pure engery digital ones but the reg 1s work ok.
the batteries have to b inserted the right way, my mother in laws camera (diff model) didnt work at all w the batteries in the wrong way.
also check that the chip has space.

it does switch off if u wait too long to take a pic it it has an automatic setting: approx 5 mins.

Digital rebel battery drain with flash only


I would suspect the batteries

Ive got an eos Rebel think its just over 4 years old
for the last year its been used every weekend for several hours 300+ pics per weekend between 2 nights I found that recently where one battery would last a night the battery was running out midway through & also taking longer to charge afterwards

2 after market replacements cost me about £10 and things are back to normal

5 years is a pretty good lifespan for a battery so its probably just getting old

I have a Canon Rebel XT EOS Every time i take a pic I get an Err 99. I have taken the battery out and memory card for 5 Min. If i do that I can take about 5 or 6 pics before I get that message again. What...


Try the following diagnosis steps: -

To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

If the “ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.
