Hello,
Are you installing Nmh (Nickle- Metal Hydride) rechargable batteries?
If not then your camera probably will not recharege them.
Also trying to recharge non rechargable batteries can cause damage to the battery, and possibly your camera.
Hope this is helpful.

The charge in my rechargeable batteries does not last in my canon digital A1000 IS. Is it the camera or the batteries that won't hold the charge?


It's most likely the batteries. Check the capacity of the battery... see if you can get a larger rated battery some have less than 1000mh ratings and some can get close to 2000.. Also some of the cheap aftermarket batteries are all they are cracked up to be. Many don't hold a charge very long. Stick with major brands. I've solved this very problem on my Canon by sticking with the Canon batts, or another major brand... no more "slick online sale batts" for me...

Brand New Canon Powershot A1000 IS battery power always low


Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in a digital camera. Some may also have reached their shelf life, and though right out of the package may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras that use AA's for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. If you read the camera's instruction manual concerning batteries, you may see the same recommendation.

Keep in mind rechargeable NiMH batteries will save you 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.

Losing power rapidly...


The only thing I can suggest is that the metal connections on your camera have corroded due to the long life of your camera. I had a similar problem where any batteries I used would not work, regardless of what kind of battery it was. Turns out I had a nice greenish layer of corrosion on my connections which I sand-papered off. This might be a little tricky if your connectors are way inside of a battery holder, but it can be done nonetheless. Try taping some sandpaper to the flat end of a pencil and clean it out that way. Hope it works.

Canon S2 IS won't turn on with rechargeable batteries??


I would let them charge til you get an indication that they are done. TV remotes require very little power to operate, while digital cameras need a lot, so that's why the batteries would work in the remotes though not fully charged.

C-8080 Turns off/on randomly..


Hi Galaxy,

Try running camera directly on DC from charger and see if it stays functioning.
If it does, they you either have:-
1) a faulty Lion battery
2) the battery detect circuit in the camera is faulty (reporting low battery and forcing shutdown)
3) the power switch on top of the camera may be leaky or partially collapsed
4) internal power supply circuit in camera has developed a fault.

Good luck...hope that the issue is the battery.
