Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ7 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera will not work after Ni-MH and Ni-Cd batteries used

Camera appears to be dead after an Ni-MH and an Ni-Cd battery were put in the camera together by mistake.

I have tried a pair of Ni-MH. No luck.

Is it repairable? What is likely to have 'blown'?

Thanks for any help.

Its not good for the batteries to combine different types but it shouldn't have affected the camera as the voltage they produce is the same. Try a couple of Eveready AA lithium batteries.

My Vivitar DVR-310 won't turn on anymore


Most obvious are the batteries. You are supposed to use two AA Alkaline / Ni-MH batteries. The best choice are the Ni-MH rechargeable ones, because you can record twice as long as with the expensive alkaline batteries. When the alkaline batteries are empty, you have to trow them away.
But Ni-MH batteries don't live forever. Typical they should survive 1000 charge discharge cycles, but when "misused" they can be bad before you reached that.
Please also check the contacts. Both, on the batteries and in the camera, where the batteries go, if these contacts are all clean and shiny. And at last, make sure you did put in the batteries the correct way. Turned around the camera won't work at all.
If you got the camera brand new, you should know there are no batteries delivered with the camera.

I have just got a second hand cx4200 camera i have put in nomal batteries the light goes straight from green to red then switches off do i need kodak batteries


You can use any "AA" batteries, just make sure to use a fresh set.

Other options:

optional camera dock with Ni-MH rechargeable battery pack (in-camera charging); 2AA lithium or Ni-MH batteries or 1 CRV3 lithium battery, 3 volt adapter

Camera indicates low battery even for fully charged battery.


I have connected my PowerShot A2000IS that was doing the same thing for me and I discovered the following:
1) The unit works fine even down to 2.5V providing the supply source (i.e. batteries can deliver 500 mA for a short burst during startup, i.e. when the camera's lens is extended). The camera draws 300mA with screen on after the initial startup current has settled. This means that the camera may not work with batteries like normal alkaline as these don't normally supply large currents, like NI-MH and NI-Cd can.
2) I found that if I lowered the voltage down to (using my bench power supply) that the low power indicator come on at just under 2.5 Vs, BUT once it has indicated low battery, turning the voltage back up to 3V didn't remove the low battery indication.
3) Finally I connected my fully charged (with combined voltage of 2.7V) Ni-Mh rechargeables (old and well used) using wires to allow me to measure their voltage and I found that when I turned on the camera the voltage dipped to 2.3V, but come up after the lens was deployed.

Conclusion and recommendations:
a) Get some new high quality Ni-Mh cells.
b) Don't use Alkaline cells (even Duracell brand might not handle it).
c) Forget Ni-Cd as terminal voltage would be at best 2.6V which doesn

Hello i put in new batteries into my camera today and it wont turn on....help! and yes i put the batteries in


Are you using the AA alkaline battery? If yes try to reverse the orientation of the battery instead of positive negative make it negative positive

Now if your using new rechargeable make sure thats the AA Ni-MH this Ni-MH is highly recommended for your camera C743

My camera just does not seem to hold a good battery charge. I use fully charged batteries and this also happens with Duarcell too. I am only using the camera in the "on" selection.


Some digital camera **** the life out of batteries, especially the older ones, even when off. It stores info like date and time etc. I take the batteries out when I am not using it for a while. True it is a pain resetting the time but it saves the batteries. Also go for the top line rechargebles,

Installed new batteries and the camera will not turn on. The camera has been sitting up for 6 mo. with no use. We used energizer lithium batteries.


Try using recomended batteries:
optional KODAK EASYSHARE Docks with 1 KODAK Ni-MH Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KAA2HR; 2 Ni-MH batteries AA, 2 lithium batteries AA; 1 KODAK Lithium Digital Camera Battery CRV3; KODAK Ni-MH 2100mAh Battery Pack, KODAK Digital Camera Battery AA (ZR6); KODAK Alkaline Digital Camera Batteries AA; 3 volt DC input AC adapter

You can even contact Kodak direct and they will send you a free CRV3 battery to test with.

Can't use chargeable batteries


If your camera doesn't work with NiMH, then it's most likely that you have either one or more bad atteries, or your camera is defective. p. 6 from the user guide: "..Ni-MH batteries left unused in storage for long periods can become ?deactivated?. Also,repeatedly charging Ni-MH batteries that are only partially discharged can cause them to suffer from the ?memory effect?. Ni-MH batteries that are ?deactivated? or affected by ?memory? suffer from the problem of only providing power for a short time after being charged. To prevent this problem, discharge and recharge them several times using the camera?s ?Discharging rechargeable batteries? function. By repeating this cycle several times, the temporary reduction in performance caused by ?memory? or ?deactivation? can be remedied and the batteries can be restored to their original performance levels. ..." Sorry i cant help you more..
