Batteries won't maintain electrical connection

The flap on the 3715 does not lock in tight so that the batteries maintain an electical connection. I have to squeeze the flap with my fingers. I continually have to reset the time, date, etc. Can you help?

Hi jensen,

in that case u'll have to change the body of the camera.
i can tell u a trick: place a piece of an aluminum foil (kitchen foil) between the contacts and the batteries. this will ensure a good connection.

try it and please rate this solution.

good luck!

Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Your camera was made long before SD cards of that capacity existed. It is only designed to be compatible with a maximum 256MB SD card, as per page 46 of the user manual for your model.

Your fix is to replace the 2GB SD card with the smaller capacity model of 256MB. It's plenty for your camera anyway, as it allows you 96 shots at the highest quality setting and about 2900 at the very lowest quality setting.

Why does the camera alwasy say change batteries


If you are using Rechargeable Batteries they only charge up to 1.2 volts compared to Alkaline batteries which come with 1.5 to 1.7 volts.
So when your camera sees 1.1 or 1.0 it assumes your batteries are about to die.

Will not establish contact with computer.. Did before Also can't find its program on the computer anymore


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Date/time screen always shows up upon startup. Does not remember date/time entered.


Your camera needs a small CMOS battery replacement which saves date, time and maintains these settings even when your camera is off. Look on to the sides of the camera, there will be a small rubber flap which has this battery. You need to replace this small coin-like battery. This battery is not the same as you always use/charge. If you can't locate the small battery, you will find more information in the camera Manual in troubleshooting or camera diagram.

I had the same problem. If your printer has a slot for the memory card you can transfer them that way. That's how I have to do it.
