I have this camera and mine will not work without duracel batteries. It is crazy but that is the only ones it works with.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your described problem maybe attributed to corrosion on the camera's battery contacts. Perhaps you could try to clean the contacts. At times it may even be necessary to scrape them a bit to expose fresh metal. In some other instances, it may also help to slightly bend/stretch theses contacts so that they exert more pressure on the batteries,

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

My nikon p100 wont take a picture everytime? it does sometimes but not always i think it is a battery issue but im not sure. please help me out


How old is the battery? If more than a couple years old, it's probably time for a new one. Check Amazon. You can find inexpensive generic replacement batteries there, just to check it out to see if the battery is the problem. Here's an example.

Canon Powershot A560. Just recently everytime I turn on my camera I have to re-set the time and date. (which will only last while camera is on - otherwise defaults to all 0's). This becomes an issue...


Open your battery door. See this picture. Notice the little door saying CR1220? Pry it open with your fingernail. The enclosed CR1220 battery is the camera's "watch" battery for time and date. Sounds like it may be "time" for a replacement. Take the battery to your local drugstore to purchase a replacement. Don't know why, but drugstores seem to have this battery at a more reasonable price (~$3) than W-Mart or other retail store (~$7).

Not accepting batteries we know are charged. Says please replace batteries and turns off. Its nearly 2 years old so out of warranty.


Are the batteries two years old? All things come to an end, and while Ni-MH cells are supposed to be rechargeable hundreds of times under ideal conditions, in real life they will lose a bit of capacity every time until they become a bit short of puff. You could try a couple good quality alkalines- if it won't run with them, then it's a real fault and you might as well buy a new camera. In two years they have gotten much better and cheaper.

I HAVE 2 BATTERIES AND THEY WILL NOT STAY CHARGED. THE CAMERA IS ONLY 2 YEARS OLD. DO I NEED TO REPLACE THE BATTERIES?


This might indeed be the case if you had the batteries for a while, and have recharged them several times. Unfortunately, even rechargeable batteries don't last forever, and need to be replaced. You can actually shorten this life of rechargeable batteries if you don't "discharge", or, "charge" them up correctly when first purchased, strange as that might seem.

Hope this helps. :)

Doesn't remember time and date


Keith, it sounds like the camera internal battery for the memory is dead. Normally they will last several years, however I have seen them go bad in one to two years. These batteries are not easily replaced on the Kodak models and requires disassembling the camera and soldering in a new battery. My recommendation would be to keep good lithium or rechargeable batteries in the camera, removing them only when they need replacing, or if the camera is going to sit unused for more than a couple months.

Batteries go dead


There appears to be an issue with the S2 IS after two years.  See the reviews on Canon's website: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=322&modelid=11368#ModelDetailAct

If yours is two years old then you are probably out-of-luck.  It would probably cost more to repair than to simply replace.  As a work-around, try removing the batteries after use.

The date and time start up appears everytime i turn on.


Set the date and time at least once... if it still keeps coming up when you change the batteries the back up battery/capacitor has failed... my old kodak does that so i know the frustration but it's still a good camera

If you've replaced the date battery, then the camera is defective. Being only a month old, first recommend seeing if your retailer will exchange it. If not, Canon will fix for free under warranty. Call 1-800-OK-CANON.

Date and Time always needs re-setting


There is a small button battery that maintain the 'clock' like all watch batteries they do go down.
A replacement will mean taking the camera part and is not a very good idea - live with it or bin it
