Olympus Camedia E10 won't power on with AA NI-MH batteries but works fine with AA ALKALINE, what can I do?


Always charge batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Always charge sets of batteries (2 or 4) together.

Make sure your rechargeable batteries are all good. One defect in a set is killing for the whole set
Don't use barrettes from different sets or brands together.
I had one brand good NiMH batteries and a very expensive charger from the same brand. The charger destroyed all my rechargeable (more than 60 now). When I first discovered the batteries were dropping out, I stopped using the charger, but it did not prevent all batteries to die in the following months. Every time on dropped out I had to change the set. I tried using up the others by grouping the ones with the same Ri, but not longer then a few months and I had a box full to trow away.
Never use a quick charger, capable of charging them within an hour or faster. Us a charger that indicates the Ri is still low enough, so you can see what batteries are bad.
Check you are using a charger for NiMH batteries.
I would try another set (new) because buying Alkaline is also not cheap.
I used 2700 mAh and later 2600 mAh rechargeable, all dead now. since a few weeks I'm now using 2300 mHh from another brand, costing 1/5 of the "best" I had before, and they are doing great. I won't charge them with the quick charger.

Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in electronic devices.
These batteries are only to be used in flash lights.

When I turn the camera on, it immediately turns off. I have changed the batteries twice already. What's causing this?


Some batteries simply don't fit right in this camera. Look at the battery connections-no standard bumps and springs. Then take a good look at two different makes of batteries. Some batteries have edges arount the end that extend further than others.
Try a different brand of batteries.

Optio E10 Keeps running thru batteries, I bought a new 8 pk for a field trip with my sons school, I took 5 pictures and had to change batteries, placed in anew set and it wouldn't turn on. waited about 15...


This sounds very much to me like a short circuit causing the batteries to drain so quickly. The most common cause would be moisture or water damage. Another likely cause could be a malfunction of the control circuits causing the unusual power drain. ie the camera may be continuously charging the flash.
It may be time to consider this camera has seen better days and find a replacement, unless of course it is still under a warranty.

DSC-W12: the batteries last only a few minutes before they're drained. Camera draining batteries very quickly.


If its a Lithium ion battery(similar to a mobile phone battery) then open battery compartment, clean battery contact points and try again after recharging the battery. If the camera uses AA batteries look for the current ratings on the side of the battery, generally digicams need batteries with more than 1200 mAh (I use a 2000 mAh for my Canon SX110 IS digicam). This current rating may vary for different manufacturers.

Canon PowerShot A630 power problem: NiMH batteries no longer work


I dont agree, I have tried several different batterie types and the batteries are draining almost instantly with the camera and they are not actually being drained. I think the camera itself is at the end of its life...as I have used rechargeable batteries for the last few years and now they wont even show as being charged on the camera. It stinks Im in your same spot now...no batteries are lasting even the brand new lithium ones...it has nothing to do with the battery "juice" but something with the canon supply power not recognizing/recieving the juice. Im not a canon expert, but I think the problem is more than the battery here Steve and im confused at the solution as well.

Batteries wear out quickly -- after 6 - 10 photos. I've tried a variety of brands and quality - both rechargeable and non-rechargeable.


Hi there Jeroldine.

Battery drain the one of the top things that make people upset over cameras. It siits number one over lens errors. The only thing I can say is that your LCD screen is the culprit. The LCD screen is a vampire that sucks batteries quicker than zooming the lens. There is nothing that you can do about it. The amps that a camera uses during normal operation is pretty severe.
You can do some things to help lessen the impact on your batteries.
First. Turn off your LCD screen. Use the viewfinder to sight in all your shots. You can save up to 75 percent of your battery life if you turn it off and use the viewfinder. Second is...zoom less. What usually happens is, you start to take a shot, and you want to get closer, so you so you zoom in. Then you might decide that maybe you have zoomed too much. Then you wind up zooming back out. - Instead, try and get closer to your subject if you can.
There is no magic fix for battery drain. Just remember that everytime you perform a function on your camera, you drain the battery. Hope this helps.

Drains my batteries too quickly


I would purchase new set of rechargeable batteries(good brand because they are cheap) and see if the batteries were going bad. If the problem still persist, 4600 main circuit is not good. Time to reward yourself with brand new digital camera.
