Your camera probably need to be soldered together to make everything fully secured. Jus topen up the camera and use a soldering iron to fix everything or bring it to a shop and they will do it for you.

I have minolta DiMage camera and it will not reconize fully charged batteries, it show battery as being 1/2 full and I put new batteries and it still won't reconize. I have cleaned the battery posts, but...


When you said new batteries, did you mean a fully charged battery? If so, it could be that your batteries are nat capable of holding a full charge. Otherwise, my suggestion would be to Call the manufacturer for tips or help.

I just bought a tasco trail camera. I set it up by the manual that came with it. It will take a couple of pictures and then it seems to shut off. If I take the batterys out and reinstall them it will work...


Hi.

Are the batteries fully charged? It is recommended that you fully charge the batteries first before you use the camera as the camera can literally eat batteries.

If you have fully charged the batteries and the camera still only allows you to take a few shots then I suggest that you take/send the camera back and have it replaced.




Regards.

Battery won't charge on my HP photosmart M407. Batteries are new. What else might be wrong?


It could be something wrong with the power board. If you have an external charger to charge the batteries. After fully charged tried to take as many pictures as you can. If the battery discharge fast, that mean something is wrong with the power board.

Camera won't turn on to take pictures~


This is a common problem related to batteries. Use 2100mA or higer batteries fully charge batteries. This problem occurs when you use alkaline batteries or faulty NiMH batteries. To solve the problem try with new fully charged NiMH batteries.

My battery keeps going dead really fast on z740


Here are the steps:
1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher).
2. Clean the battery contacts.
a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth.
b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera
3. Turn on your camera without the memory card.

The battery is run down every time I come to use the camera. So it seems to bleed out power even when turned off. I have replaced the original battery and the new battery also runs out while sitting turned...


Hi,
This is not a common/generic problem for this camera, we need to be a bit more creative into it resolution.
I am assuming that you have already checked for accidental 'power on' of the camera prior to reporting it. By accidental power on, i mean that as this is one of those semi-pro dslr cameras you need to make sure that the power is turned off before you replace the lens cap as otherwise you can mistakingly leave the camera on while the covered lens will show nothing on the lcd/viewfinder display.
Check the time it takes for you to charge your battery. It should take a minimum of 5.5 hours to charge the battery fully. If the charging light on the charger turns off before then, continue charging for the next couple of hours. Try using the batteries again. Also, please note that temperature is very important both during usage and charging. As per Sony, the optimum charging temperature is 25 degrees C or 77 degrees F. In colder areas, battery power runs out extremely fast.

Kodak Easy Share z712 IS not detecting charged battery


I have the exact same camera almost a year too. It is a total "swinka" on batteries. About 10-15 shots on super ni-cads, and quits without warning.

A pair of Energizer 7X gave me near 500 shots. Much cheaper but still ...

So 4 months ago I bought a charger and 2 rechargeables. Charge one while using the other one.
I may get 70-90 shots per charge on these lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, without flash.

Testing the batteries without a load doesn't really tell you anything.
What's the reading? Should be well over 4 volts when fully charged. Mine show 4.2V
