2yrs old. Went thru 3 sets of batteries to get 20 pictures. Dead again. What`s the story?


Sounds like you have a short in the wiring. This is repair shop stuff, or buy a new camera time. Usually, if it is a point and shoot , it is not worth sending for repair as you'll playas much as a new camera is worth. I would look for a new camera, personally. Good luck.

I got the kodak easy share 143 model camera coming brand new off of ebay yesterday,,,but it keeps saying my batteries are half drained, then dead after a couple of photos. Then if they're dead it...


Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in today's power hungry digital cameras. Some batteries may also have reached their shelf life at the store, and though brand-new right out of the package may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. The one's that came with your camera are just to show you that the camera works, but as you've discovered, they'll only last for a few pictures. Digital cameras that use AA's for the most part should only be used with modern rechargeable batteries. If you read the camera's instruction manual concerning batteries, you should see the same recommendation.
Modern rechargeable batteries have over 5 times the power density of alkaline batteries (that's right, they last up to 5 times longer than an alkaline battery. And you can recharge them over and over!). Keep in mind rechargeable batteries will save you much money in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may be angry with yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

IT KEEPS TELLING ME TO CHANGE THE BATTERIES (EVEN WHEN THEY'RE NEW BATTERIES) AND SHUTS DOWN COMPLETELY.


Couldn't find a firmware upgrade for my Canon PowerShot A720. Tried putting a piece of rubber under the spring on the lid to make it tighter and it helped because I can take more pictures before I get the dead battery message (even thought they aren't dead). I bought the Duracell that you can check the charge on because I'm sure I've wasted dozens of batteries by now.

Canon Powershot SX110is: problem with the batteries


Make sure you are using Lithium batteries. Alkaline batteries will go dead immediately in this camera. I've tried it.

Change the batteries message even with new NIMH RShack batteries


The solution is to change the small 'date/time' battery. You can have the regular batteries as charged as you like, it won't make any difference. The tiny date/time battery is in the same compartment as the regular batteries, on the opposite side of the hinge. Extract it with a fingernail, it is situated on the left hand wall of the battery compartment (when the camera is inverted and the compartment open).

Canon A95 "Change Batteries" problem!


I have this problem as well. I thought it was a problem with my NiMH batteries. So, I bought a volt meter to make sure the batteries worked. I have 8 AA NiMH batteries. I charged them all up and tested them with the volt meter. They were all good to go. However, no matter what I put in the camera one of two things happens:
1. I get the "change batteries" message.
2. I don't get the message, but the next time I check the camera (a few days later), one of them is totally drained.
Something is very wrong and I plan on contacting Canon.

Keeps saying to change batteries


It occurred lately with reloadable NiMh-batteries.
When I put in some alkaline batteries I had no problem.
I cleaned the contact surfaces of the NiMh-batteries and the contact surfaces in the camera. Up till now I have had no problems.

Camera batteries drain quickly


Open the battery door and check the contact between the camera and the batteries. Most often then not there is just a bad contact and it's ruinning your baterry life.
Make sure that the contact are well placed and that there is no rust or dirt build up around there.

Camera says brand new batteries are dead, then shuts down


It is possible that the batteries are dead (they might be faulty or too old) even when they are out of the package, though unlikely. Try another set of batteries, and if these don't work, you'll probably have to send it for a checkup.
