Probably a hardware issue, but the issue could also be with your USB port - make sure that there are no yellow exclamations next to the usb port in the PC device manager.

The battery indicator might not be stable during the following activities because they use large amounts of power:

1. The backlight of the LCD
2. Volume change
3. Pressing function keys and buttons
4. Reading the CD or files (Loading data to the memory)

The battery indicator shows the life expectancy of the battery based on current power usage. During these high power usage activities, that may only last a few seconds, the indicator will obviously show a lower level on the battery indicator. Once the high power activity has ended it will show a more accurate battery level.

340 battery/charge

Doesn't this player use a normal AA battery? If not, and it has a rechargeable battery built in then there are 2 possibilities. One, the cheap battery you got from China is no good. I always wonder how they can sell batteries for under $10 and ship all the way from China for free. I suspect it's because they are pretty crappy batteries. two, your player has a short in it somewhere that is draining the battery. i have an iPod that does that. I fully charge it and turn it off. Next morning it's dead again and i've replaced the battery numerous times.

The camera(Fujifilm Finepix AX 250) says that the life of brand new, never used LR6 AA Alkaline batteries is gone in 10 min-1hour, when the batteries have plenty of life left. The camera takes 2 AA LR6...

A search of the Fujifilm website provided no answers. Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. Also, I would switch to 3 or 4 sets of rechargeable batteries. That way, you always have a fresh set ready and you'll save money in the long run.

Brand new AA batteries last only a few minutes, i.e. 5 new pictures. why?

Are you using normal AA batteries? i.e. non-rechargeable ones? If so, this is probably why... Digital cameras will **** these dry super fast. You will need to use some AA Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable batteries (NiMH) with at least 2500mAh capacity to get some decent run time.

Every time i put batteries in the nikon coolpix L100 it always says "batteries exhausted".

please consider the brand of batteries. these cameras use high-strength or industrial strength batteries. normal AA batteries cannot power it for a long time and the batteries may be waek to begin with.

Hi, i have a iRiver iFP-790, i was wondering, how do i charge this device?

This device has an AA battery that you must replace. Slide open the bottom red part, and swap the battery for a charged one.
You can use rechargeable batteries (available at any supermarket) and a battery charger (available at most supermarkets, otherwise look for it in electronics stores)
I don't think there is a possibility to recharge the device using the usb port.

Hi, I have an Olympus fe130 and it keeps saying the batteries are dead when they are brand new. Any ideas? Thanks, Erica

The camera uses very common "AA" batteries, but infortunately AA batteries come in various "stengths", and the FE130 requires a very high strength AA battery- you may have a battery, that will fit in the camera, but just doesn't have the power for your camera, Also, the batteries may be "new" to you (you bought them recently), but they may have been on the store shelf too long (most "throw away batteries have Expiration dates on the package and sometimes on the bateries themselves- if they are still "in date"- have someone check them with a battery tester or voltmeter- if you don't have either of those- see if you have some other device ( a small flashlight) they might fit in to check- occassionally batteries go bad. There is also the possibility is that you purchased AA batteries that are rechargable, like NiCad, that don't have to be thrown away), but they need charging before they can be used, and regularly to keep their charge. If you tell us what the battery label says and any date info it might have we can probably know more.

Digicam problem

Is it rechargable batteries (orignal for the camera), or are you using standard batteries? (AA/RC6 kind of batteries)

If you use AA batteries (or similar) make sure you use alkaline batteries of a good brand. Cheap batteries ofteh don't have the power to run digital cameras. Especially using the LCD screen drains the batteries.

If you have a new rechargable battery and it last only a short time see if using it and recharging it a few times helps the bettery "getting into it". If not, your camera may need repairs.
