Wierd Camera shuts off after 2 seconds

Changed the battery recently and the camera keeps cutting off after about 2 seconds, no time to change any setting, have made sure the batteries are in the correct position, the batteries are rechargable NI-MH 1000mah AAA. The package said made for digital cameras and manual says to use alkaline, so am i using the wrong battery?

Re: Wierd Camera shuts off after 2 seconds

The DXG305's battery metering sys works by measuring voltage. You can have a set of 1.2V NI-AH @ infinite Ah (4x1.2V=4.8V) and the stupid thing will still shut down! It only draws approx 300mA max. The DXG requires more than 6V constant; I know this 'cause I hooked it up an external bench power supply and dialed in the voltages, the thing starts to crap out at anything less than 6V. Expensive alkaline e2 might hold up for a bit, but my solution was to build an external 7V battery pack using 6 Ni-MH AAs and a battery cartridge. The DXG30X is a half ass POS designed product, but it's was great way to waste time and exercise ones trouble shooting skills.

Mine did the same thing. Just let it sit for a couple of days. Don't mess with it. It'll eventually stop doing that and work. That's what i did. It worked for mine.

Batteries problem....

Try rechargable NiMH batteries. They are specifically designed for today's technology, and last much, much longer than traditional batteries. It doesn't matter about the brand -- Energizer, Rayovac, Duracell, generic -- I've found that they all tend to last about the same amount of time in my digital camera. But I only use rechargable ones anymore.

Coolpix 775 shuts off all by itself

The auto shut off should be around 30 seconds to allow the built in memory to store everything and rest.If it keeps repeatedly turning off and then on again in a short space of time it will use alot more power from the batteries just Like a car engine uses more petrol stopping at traffic lights. The other factor, I am repeatedly typing on this site is Digital cameras need to run on rechargeable batteries, If you are already using rechargeables,have a look at tha mAh value which should be written on the side. Retailers recomend a value of at least 1800,personally i would go for 2100.

Battery Problem

These cameras have a internal battery that holds data for the camera to keep its settings. These batteries can be replaced but the camera has to be disassimboled to change it they should be able to be changed at a local camera shop pretty cheap.

Camera Keeps shutting off

Have you changed the battery/batteries for another brand? I'm wondering if various brands react differently to extreme temperatures? Probably not the problem with your camera, just thought it might be worth a try!
