New BN-V428U battery

I need to know : once I have fully charged the new battery and start using it in my camera, is it best to utilize the camera until the battery is almost discharged or return it to AC charging power each day?
In the old days batteries had a "memory" and you only recharged a battery when it was fully discharged not each time you were done using the camera. thanks

My Coolpix s570 camera wont switch on


I noticed that you noted that you have a new battery. Have you fully charged it? Although batteries are charged before they leave the factory, you do not know how long they have been sitting on the dealer's shelf slowly discharging. The charging time for your EN-EL10 battery is about 100 minutes. Once your battery is fully charged, try to turn the camera on again. If it still doesn't work, you may have bought a defective battery, the battery contacts on the battery, the battery charger or in your camera's battery compartment may be dirty or the battery charger may be defective.
To clean terminals, rub a clean pencil eraser across the contacts. That will remove any dirt, grime or oils that may be preventing a solid electrical contact. Once the contacts are clean, charge the battery again and retry it in the camera.
If all that fails, contact the Nikon USA Service Center at 1-800-645-6687 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.

Well i tried to take a picture and i took it and then it turned off once i took the picture


Sounds like the batteries.

Digital cameras are noteably, very demanding power suckers.
If they don't have brand new batteries, they shut off.

They requre top brand (Energizer or Duracell) batteries, and once they are used for even a short time; they will not be enough either.
(Dont' throw them out though, other less demanding things like Remote controlls will gladly use them for years)

The best bet is to use Rechargeable batteries, or have a $100/month budget for duracells.

Statistics you will need to look for in Rechargeable batteries are:

Type; Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd) or Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)

The Metal Hydride rechargeable battery is best since it charges faster and retains it charge longer, the old fashioned Nickel Cadmium battery used to be the best, but not any longer.

Rating: 900mAh; 1800mAh; 2200mAh; others not mentioned.

Unimportant note: The mAh means Milli Amphere Hours, which means how much power the battery cell will hold when fully charged. It is measured in Ampheres (Amps) per Hour, or in this case Milliamperes (1/1000 of an amp), but that's not important to know; all rechargeable batteries are rated by this number.

The number of mAh's you want are about 1000 or more,

Generally it's the more mAh's you have the more you can take pictures. Such as 900mAh will get about 50 to 250 pictures, but 1800mAh will get you twice as much.

Last note on Rechargable batteries: Only use a LiMH charger for LiMH batteries, and use a NiCd Charger for NiCd batteries.
If a charger dosn't say what type of batteiries it charges, it's the old fashioned NiCd (Nickel Cadmium) from the 1900's when that was the only type of rechageable battery.

Good luck with your Digital Camera.

JVC Camcorder - used wrong power lead to charge battery


They sell external battery chargers for these for around 10 bucks at Amazon. Just pop the battery in the charger. Beware the battery itself can be worn down or dead. It also has protection circuits right inside the battery that can be blown (maybe a small fuse too). A new high capacity battery (3 times the recording time) is also at Amazon for around $25.

JVC EVERIO HYBRID GZ-MG330 Battery error?


I bought a replacement data battery BN-VF-808U from Digicowfish through Amazon.com. (?made by PomerPower).
It fits nciely to my JVC Everio GZ-MG330 which uses a BN-VF808U data battery. However, JVC gives a screen message:Communicating Error.
Now I have solved my Communication Error by using a jumper cable provided with the replacement battery BN-VF808U to connect the attached replacement battery to the camcorder. There is a DC input socket on the camcorder. There is also a DC input socket on the replacement battery for direct connection.

I was given a nice sony handycam camcorder. i was told the battery is probley dead


Batteries have a limited life even if they are constantly charged.
Leaving batteries in constant charge will limit their life by causing gas leakage. Once depleted, they must be replaced. There is also a small button battery that keeps unit memory up, if you do not use camera for months at a time, replace this battery also.
Ni-Cad batteries need to be refreshed ony once a month by discharging them fully, then recharging them fully for best performance to erase memory effect

The only suggestion is that it's a faulty battery. You said the camcorder is new, take the battery back, it's under waranty, and get a new one.

Batteries


Hi, This might be a case of the defective batteries (though brand new). Most if not all rechargeable batteries including Li-Ion batteries have only so much shelf life. The unit might be new but have been with the dealer for sometime. Probably your best bet would be to bring it back to the dealer and ask for a replacement camera or at least the batteries. Show him the fully charged indicator and how quick it will be gone when you try to take a pic. Of course, you would need your warranty card, proof of purchase and any other documents normally asked for complaints like this, Hope this give you an idea. Good luck and kind regards.
