Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 Digital Camera

Panasonic lumixDMC-FX7 camera

Battery indicator shows full bars on switching the camera on. After a single shot (generally with flash) the battery indicator shows battery flat (indicator red). If I turn the camera off and on again the indicator shows battery full. I would like to know whether this is a camera or a battery problem.

Re: Panasonic lumixDMC-FX7 camera

Could be either. If on switch on again the indicator is full and you get more work done then its a camera fault. If when you switch on again the battery remains flat then this could be the camera fault too the flash capacitor showing signs of distress. On the other hansd the battery could be nearing the end it useful life. How much is a new battery?

How to know battery power in nv3 camera

When the camera is switched on, the battery condition is displayed on the LCD monitor. There is a little battery, with 3, 2, 1 or no bars in it, indicating Full; 3 bars, Low capacity; two bars, one bar and none bar. In all three cases, you should be prepared to recharge the battery. But if really there are no bars, don't shoot pictures anymore,
Recharge or place a spare battery, if you do have one (or more)

Poblem with my panasonic lumix dmc-fx7

It may that your battery has lost its charge, or has leaked? If it won't hold a charge try taking it out wiping it and trying again if that doesn't work you may need a new battery.

Battery life

Hi, Yes, there are both possibilities - either the camera is faulty and drains too much power from battery or the charger is faulty and can't charge the battery enough. How long does it take to "charge" the battery - from the moment you put the battery into charger to the moment it will signalize battery full? Do you have any friend with the same or similar camera? Try using your battery in his camera or recharging your battery using his charger. If not, try your local store if they will allow you to charge the battery in new charger... BTW it is normal for these batteries to have significantly lower life in very cold temperatures. The advise is to have the camera (or just battery) near your body so that it is not in cold for all the time and put it out only for time you take photo.
