My on/off button stays on which, of course, runs the battery out. Is there a way I can fix the button so that it will stay in the off position?

You didn't indicate the camera you have. But, try removing the battery for 2 minutes. Yes, a complete two minutes. Then reinstall and see if that resets it for you.

If it stayed shut before it will do again.

Take the batteries out. check for anything in the compartment, put them back in checking that they are the correct way round and fully inserted always spring end first then the little positive button last.
Push them carefully fully home and the door should shut.
Patience usually worked in the end.

Why does the battery run down so fast????


CRV3 Lithium.

These type of batteries run out quickly, because they are basically just 2x AA Rechargable tapped together. Cameras using these kind or just AA batteries run out quickly and don't last so long. Its always on and running as long as the connectors are touching (Positive and Negative) conductors.

Resolution:
Take out the batteries when not in use
If you have the budget, buy a new camera; stay away from these type of battery cameras
-Price ranges from 100USD-1,000+USD

Good luck, and rate my response.

The camera's battery died yesterday. I changed the batteries this morning and now I only get the green light to come on, but the light stays on when the camera is off as well


It sounds like your power on button may be stuck, if the ON indicator is always on. That may be the reason your battery was dead yesterday. Try reinstalling your batteries, checking carefully the positive and negative positions, and working your power button several times rapidly to see if it is stuck. If it is still showing a constant ON condition, try the following steps. With the batteries out of the camera, try a tiny bit of rubbing alcohol around the power switch, working the switch rapidly for a few seconds to see if that frees it. Replace the batteries with known fresh ones and try to power up the camera. That may fix your problem. If not, the camera will probably have to be repaired or replaced.

Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances are that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Camera won't stay on in camera mode but does in display mode


Your problem is likely due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances are that your batteries need to be replaced because they're just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

When I press the power button, the screen stays black and the lens goes in and out and then it dies. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?


First sounds like poor battery, but you've checked that of course. Other cause might be dirt between the lense's retracting parts which prevents the lense to fully extend.

Everything works....but hit shutter button & it goes dead.


Hold the power button in the ON position for 10 seconds, then release (obviously making sure the batteries are in first). This forces the camera to do a full reset - you will have to set the time etc when it restarts.

Hope this helps, it worked for me...

Is it a switch or a dial? have you tried new batteries?have you removed them and let the camera sit with the batteries out over night? The button or mode switch could be bad.
