Battery problem or camera problem?

My camera was fine, it was running low on battery, but not completly dead. i took the battery out and put it in the charger. as i was walking away, i noticed the light on the charger was flashing red every few seconds instead of staying on like usual [till its done charging] i thought it was weird but ignored it. later, i put it in the camera and it showed it hadnt charged at all. so i unplugged the charger and left it alone for awhile and tried chargeing it again later. it worked fine and i forgot about it. the next time i went to charge it, again, the camera wasnt completly dead, the charger was blinking. after a while i put the battery back into my camera to see if it had charged at all. for the last week the camera wont come on whatsoever. it acts as if there is no battery in it. ive done everything i could think of to try to fix it and it wont work. im soooooo frustrated, i just want my camera back! =[ im 15, and my parents no squat about technology so im stuck in this one alone. PLEASEEEE help me!

My camera is completely dead. I've changed battery, memory card, pushed disp. Nothing. I recharged the battery and put it in. Got an error 70 message that said not working do to malfunction and to turn...

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera. This will require disassembly and trouble-shooting to identify and replace the defective component and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Many digital cameras (eg Samsung D53, Nikon 2100) have extremely poor battery life with alkaline batteries (under 20 shots!). Sometimes they won't even take a single picture.

Try using rechargeable batteries or "oxyride" disposable batteries. They perform infinately better.

Won't switch on. Was working fine; battery running low so removed it to recharge as I have done many times before. On reinstalling battery the camera is completely dead.

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.

Nikon Coolpix 5700 was working fine, now it won't turn on. Batteries are fine, but camera just won't power up at all. No error message, nothing but a dead (black) screen. No idea why it won't come on--it's...

Two quick suggestions first is the battery chamber contacts clean make sure they are clean. Are you using a battery pack with rechargeable AA's ? if so check the battery orientation it only takes one out of place. If you are using the rechargeable battery I know you said the batteries were fine but make sure the power is up on the rechargeable. I've had it where I put a battery on charge knowing it was pretty well dead came back 5 minutes later and the light was green, took the battery of the charger unplugged the charger plugged the charger back in and put the battery back on the charge. It then completed its true cycle.

Camera says new batteries are dead

I found out how to fix it. (STEP 1.) Take out all of the batteries. (STEP 2.) Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. (STEP 3.) Put the batteries back in and you should be all set.

Even with new batteries and they go dead before I take 3 pictures

Yes, there is definitely a fault with your camera.  You should be able to return it for a replacement.  I wouldn't experiment too much with batteries in this camera. batteries discharging this quickly are likely to overheat, causing unmentionable catastrophe.

Olympus Camedia C5050 Zoom

The unusual beeps usually occur when the lens cannot be extended or retracted, often due to dirt in the gearing or the lens cap being left on.
Try using canned air to blow around the outside of the extension cylinder, and, putting a fresh set of batteries in the camera (it probably got stuck on since it couldn't fully retract the lens and didn't complete the shutdown).
If that doesn't work, try taking it to a camera store with repair technicians and having them take apart and clean the lens extension/retraction mechanism.

Battery Low with NiMH (won't turn on) OK with Alkaline

Not the camera obviously - works OK Replace the NiMah batteries- get several sets and keep one set in the bag charged with one set in the camera. You may be able to 'refresh' the original batteries by putting them into a small flashlight and running them until the bulb goes out. This discharges them completely- then recharge. It is said batteries have a 'memory' so that a battery that is down say 50% and recharged will only recharge that 50% and the other 50% is lost for use. So you have to flatten the batteries completely
