Camera always says low battery even when you put in fresh batteries..will not allow me to take any pictures

Hello. Remove the batteries and use the eraser on the end of a common pencil to clean the contacts. Then replace the batteries and turn it on. J.

Fuji a350. When I got the camera, it took many many photos(50-100) with alkaline...

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.

I put new batteries in and it still says battery dead. is there a battery within the camera also

silly question, but have you tried different fresh batteries? sometimes batteries go dead in the store, especially if they are cheap batteries. try another fresh set.

I put in a freshly charged battery and go shoot a youth football game. After a series of shots, my battery is "dead". I turn the camera off and then back on and can get a few more shots before it goes dead...

How about cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol? It also wouldn't hurt to visit the support section of the Nikon website to see if they've posted any firmware updates.

Battery low indicator comes on even after new battery installed

I also have this problem. I put freshly recharged batteries in the DX3900 and the camera starts to turn on and reads the memory card (the green LED blinks) and then I notice that the in CAPTURE mode the lens does not extend out of the body housing. The top display shows a flashing low battery warning and after approx. 15 seconds, the camera shuts off with no function.

I have determined that the camera appears to have changed its low battery sense level as I have verified that the batteries are indeed fully charged by using a volt meter. If I have the camera in a warm environment, and do not have the LCD display on (removes a major power drain) the camera can be made to work for a short while. If I select the LCD to turn on, the extra drain seems to cause the camera's battery monitor to think that the battery voltage is too low and the camera shut down. I have yet to resolve this issue.

Won't turn on

How "fresh" are the batteries. Quite often they are weak, right out of the package. We revive a lot of "dead" cameras with Energizer Lithium AA batteries. Many cameras that people are ready to write-off, are resurrected with the Energizer Lithiums. I also think that battery manufacturers are not putting as much "juice" in them as they used to.

Camera will not accept the new batteries.

I called pentax and they told me only use Energizer batteries. I did not think it would make a differance but the "cheap" batteries do not deliver steady power even that there new the power flux is enough to throw these new cameras off. there that sinistive. Energizer's deliver a very even power and that is the only battery that pentax recamends. All outhers even dualcell delivers uneven power and that will cause the camera to think the batteries are dead.

HP photosmart M417

My M417 that I just got at a garage sale works fine but when I put a set of freshly charged NiMH batteries in it will only work for a couple of minutes before the camera will say they are dead and shuts down. When I test the "dead" batteries they each have over 1.25 volts and flow over 8 amps through a dead short (the meter). I have upgraded the firmware. Any ideas?

Fuji FinePix E550 Digital Camera stopped working after fresh batteries inserted

due to very low temprature some malfunction may have occured. keep it in normal temprature for few hours and then try switching it ON. even if this not solves take it to some service centre.
