If you use a lot of batteries, it is a good idea to have a battery meter (tester). Radio shack has one for about $5. I say this because I've seen a lot of "brand new" batteries that aren't any good, especially imports. AA, AAA, C,D batteries should all read at least 1.5 volts dc. Under test, if the battery voltage drops slowly, it is bad. A very good battery will actually show a slight increase in voltage under load. Make sure the polarity (+,-) of the batteries installed is correct.
If you are sure you have the correct memory card and it still doesn't stay in, it could be that the retainer tab is broken. If this is the case, try inserting a small piece of paper as a shim, and that may hold it in place.
If the camera is under warranty, you may want to return it.
I hope this helps.

My Polaroid z340 instant digital camera won't stay charged! I fully charge it and it dies about 5 minutes later! It's brand new please help!


If is it brand new you should have some kind of warranty on the camera. Have you contacted the manufacturer? How about where you bought it? Did you pay with a credit card? If yes, ask them if you have any protection for a faulty product. Sounds to me like you just got a "lemon."

When I put knew batteries in my camera they die instantly. How do I rectify this problem?


The only thing that will deplete batteries that fast is that they are being shorted out. Anything odd in the battery compartment? Batteries inserted correctly? You may need service.

Memery card into computer but no pictures


I posted the info below for someone else with a similar problem. I hope it is helpful. Let us know if it is not, Andy If you can remove the memory card and put it into your computer it will see the card. If it does not automatically give you an optoin to veiw the pics. Go to:Start>Computer>expand computer in left pane(your card will have a drive letter and it's name after it i.e.E:\canon sd card.>select your card and look in the different folders, it's usually in DCIM>101 or other ### folders.
Comments: Sep 09, 2009- can you cancel the format. open the folder with pics, then copy them into your documents or picture folder on your hard drive? I have seen these cards do some strange things.
If you still have trouble try rebooting your computer. After restart insert card and try again.
FYI; always let your camera finish processing a picture you have taken before turning it off & never remove the card while camera is on. If batteries2.gif die while processing a photo you can risk losing all pics on card. So download often and replace batteries before they die completely.

1994 Plymouth laser won't move forward when in gear..


SOUNDS LIKE THE TORQUE-CONVERTER WHICH ALLOWS THE CAR TO BE IN GEAR AT A RED LIGHT OR STOP SIGN AND NOT STALL. IF YOU HEAR A RATTLING TRY TO FIND OUT IF IT IS COMING FROM THE EXHAUST PIPE OR THE TRANSMISSION. OR IT COULD BE A CLOGGED CATALYTIC CONVERTER. I HOPE IT IS THE LESSER EXPENSIVE OF THE TWO. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED

Changing battery in one600 camera


The battery is in the film pack. The one600 doesn't use any other type of battery except what comes with the film.  Either the film is really old and the battery died or it's defective.  If the film is relatively new and you haven't been able shoot all 10 shots, then you might call the manufacturer for a replacement.  Otherwise, I'd buy a new film pack.
