Battery problem, while taking pictures

My battery shows it's full when I'm browsing pictures. However whenever I try to take a picture or a video, the lens extends, and immediately retracts, showing a change the batteries message. I did so, to no effect. I also tried to clean the contacts, also to no effect.

MEMORY CARD SHOWING FULL BUT WHEN CAMERA CONNECTED TO DOWNLOAD TO LAPTOP OR DESKTOP ITS SHOWING FREE SPACE AND USED SPACE BUT NOT SHOWING ANY PICTURES AND VIDEOS,


Save the pictures and videos on the card. Try reformatting the card in the computer, and then again using the camera. The first reformat will ensure the card is empty, and then the camera reformat will ensure that it is recognized by the camera. If the camera reformat will not work, try a new card.

Camera shutting off when trying to take a picture?


Maybe you should think about taking it to a camera shop or something to have a look at because the wires inside may be damaged or faulty. Hope you get it working again!

Turns on and won't turn off has a picture of a battery and a flower


Try to push the ON/OFF button longer or harder. If the problem persist, take the batteries off then put in again into your camera.
Picture of battery shows your battery stats full/empty.
Picture of flower is indicator that you use "MACRO" mode, this is mode when you have to take a small picture with near range between object and lens while capturing the picture, not suggested for taking daily pictures. If you don't need this function you can turn off the "MACRO" mode, certain camera have dedicated button to adjust it, but see the manual to make sure.

Hope this help and be kind to rate please, thank you.

Whenever I try to send or receive a picture message my phone says "Memory full. Please delete files in My Stuff." but my memory card still has a ton of space. I've tried resetting it and taking the battery...


The phone automatically stores the images in the phone memory, not the storage card. Set the storage folder for your images to your storage card and you'll be taking pictures again in no time :)

My camera stops working but the battery showed full.


Those are the symptoms of a battery that has been charged many times or has been allowed to completely discharge once or twice. Try some new ones.
