Question about Samsung Digimax A7 Digital Camera
Camera bought in '05 worked fine for about a year. Then it started giving low battery indication, followed by immediate turn-off, with freshly charged NiMH batteries. I learnt recently about the voltage difference between NiMH and alkaline, so I tried a pair of regular AA -- camera works fine! Would be interested to know if anybody else has experienced this problem, how hard and costly it may be to repair ?
Not the camera obviously - works OK Replace the NiMah batteries- get several sets and keep one set in the bag charged with one set in the camera. You may be able to 'refresh' the original batteries by putting them into a small flashlight and running them until the bulb goes out. This discharges them completely- then recharge. It is said batteries have a 'memory' so that a battery that is down say 50% and recharged will only recharge that 50% and the other 50% is lost for use. So you have to flatten the batteries completely
