Hi there. The power off lever is on the shutter release button. (the button you press to take a picture).
There are 3 positions for this lever, they are:
Power off is the middle setting while Power on is the top setting and the Self-timer as the bottom setting.

Replace your battery and remember to move the lever to the middle position to turn it off when your done. Don't forget to rate my solution, and have fun with your camera!

Battery temperature high...what do I do?


Apparently, the manual says the battery may get hot during use. If the "battery temperature high" warning comes on, you're supposed to turn it off for 5 minutes.

Nikon Coolpix L110 camera was bought for me for Christmas 2010. Worked fine at first, but now seems to be having problems. Batteries don't last. I just bought new batteries in Feb/March this year...


You have to charge the batteries for nearly 8-10 hours. Brand new batteries also require a full recharge of 8-10 hours.Not only making sure the batteries are charged, have you changed the battery in the menu under type of batteries.

Camera Canon A710 IS started to ask set time date when turned on


When the camera is left without power for an extended period of time, the time and date settings are gone. You need to reset them and when you're finished, click the set/ok button twice.

Battery level don't show on display.


hi friend,

follow these steps
  1. Turn off your LCD display screen. I know this is hard—who likes shoving their face against the camera to compose a shot through the little viewfinder? But the LCD screen single-handed-ly drains a lot of power.
  2. Minimize the picture preview to the least amount of time possible—usually one second. This uses less LCD screen time, thus less power.
  3. Dim the brightness on your LCD screen. A dimmer display extends battery life by consuming less power to light the screen. This might make the display harder to see, but usually only in direct sunlight.
  4. Set the power saver to the least amount of time. Power saver lets your digital camera “sleep” when not in use, but doesn’t shut it down entirely. To “wake up” your digital camera, simply click the shutter button.
  5. Use your zoom as little as possible. The motor that moves the lens uses power. This also goes for repeatedly turning your digital camera on and off if it has an extend able lens.
  6. Turn off the continuous focus. Again, constantly using motors and electronics to ready your shot drastically minimizes battery life.
  7. Don’t push the shutter button half-way down until you’re ready to shoot. Pushing the shutter button (constantly resetting and refocusing) will drain battery life.
  8. Use the flash only when necessary. Your digital camera’s “auto flash” option should take care of this, but make sure your flash isn’t going off in broad daylight.
  9. Don’t delete pictures from your digital camera unless necessary. This consumes power. Wait until you download the pictures to your computer before deleting.
  10. This one’s basic, but charge your battery often. Lithium ion batteries, which most digital cameras use, don’t have “battery memory” like older alkaline. In fact, lithium ions work better and last longer if charged completely and regularly.

thank u for using fixya

I have a camera battery question...Kodak M853.?


Hey cambameriezz,
I would make sure I purchased the correct battery, and if you did I would make sure the battery terminals in the camera are clean by cleaning them with a soft cotton swab. If none of this works I would try charging the camera using the ac adapter rather that plugging it into the computer.

Sincerely,
Allan

Loading batteries


Most Nikon manual focus cameras I see have the same battery chamber, and their battery loading procedure are exactly the same. Use a coin to unscrew the battery chamber at the buttom, the batteries should be instered into the battery holder (the unscrewed part) , with negative end goes in first. Also refer to the battery insertion direction on the side of the plastic part of the battery holder you will find it :)
