Batter problem? Hi the battery is fully charged, but when I turn the camera on, it stays on for a few seconds, and then automatically shuts off. Do you have any idea what I can do?

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Yea I have had this camera ever since it was released, so maybe it is time for a new battery. I do think I might've overcharged it to much. On top of that, I just came back from my vacation in Asia, so i think maybe the converter might play a role in it as well.

    I'll go ahead and see if I can find a deal on a battery and update u guys. thanks a lot!

I hate to tell you this, but you may have charged the battery so much that it doesn't hold a charge anymore.

You should either try to get a new battery for it or maybe make sure you have the right kind of battery installed.

Good Luck!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Depending on the length of service, it may be time to replace the rechargeable batteries. It is possible that the batteries wold accept the charge but thereafter not able to retain it, hence your described condition.

In some instances of removable batteries, it may be necessary to clean/scrape the battery contacts of the camera. They tend to have corrosion after some time and it would help to expose fresh metal. Additionally, you could also try to bend/stretch these contacts so as to exert more pressure on the battery terminals.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Model PL81. Why does it zoom, beep, and shut down?


Are you positive that the battery is good? Turning on for a few seconds and then shutting down is a classic symptom of a battery that did not take a proper charge and as soon as the surface charge is used, unit will shut down. And what if your charger is not properly charging the battery?

If you have a battery eliminator try that in lieu of the battery to see what happens.

My rebel t3i wont turn on!!!


I just bought a T3i and only used it 2 days of shooting. On third day, it's not turning on and it's 80 degree's. So not cold weather. Batteries are fully charged. When I put batter in and turn the switch on, the red light comes on for only a second and then nothing! Other times the red light won't even come on, period. As I said, I've only had it 3 days and it's dead....

When I put fully charged batteries in my camera and turn it on the screen works fine. However, when I install any picture card and turn the camera on it gets stuck at the Pentax Optio screen. I will stay...


I have to say that you are probably using the wrong SD card. Or the memory card is to big and the camera cant handle all that memory space. I recomend that you try a 512mb San Disk SD Card. Dont mistake this for any card. Dont use a San Disk SDHC card. Do this and make sure your batteries are charged and you should of solved your problem. Good-Luck.

The camera comes on when the powere button is


Usually this is a sign that the battery is weak or not charged enough.
Make sure you have either a new battery or the battery is fully charged, then test the camera again.
This camera takes a Sony NP-BK1 Li-ion rechargeable battery (or compatible).
If the battery is good and is fully charged, then there is a problem in the camera, and needs repair or sell it as parts or as is (if repair cost is too much) on a site such as Ebay.

When I turn my camera on it stays on for a few seconds and then shuts itself off. I even put brand new batteries in it and it does the same thing


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. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)

Loosing power randomly


how old are the batteries and how many times they were charged without being fully drained can cause a short life for the battery. Try a new battery-fully charging it properly, but dont charge it again till it goes off by itself completely. If you have a wall charger, plug your phone in. If it stays on that way, check your 'power save' settings. That can also make your camera shut off. Try these steps first and see if it changes the 'battery' from being empty to full and stays on. hope this helps

Olympus Stylus 730 shuts off after few seconds. Battery is fully charged, tried a resetting: no change.


To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover opens and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode.
Operate the zoom lever or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.
