Yes, I have seen this problem in the workshop. The problem is not with the battery, but with your camera.

The automatic AC-DC switching cct of the DC-DC converter is faulty. Depending on the model of your camcorder ( I think you have one? ) this could either be quite a cheap repair or more expensive than a new camcorder.

A older model would most likely not be worth repair.

Sorry about the bad news.

I did the same thing. What I found out was that it's very important to charge a lithium battery completely on the first use. You probably took it off the charger too soon. If it's not completely charged on the first use it won't be able to hold any charge.
Sadly, I ended up having to buy another one and try again.
Sorry.

Why doesn't it recognize the correct battery?


hi,
If your camera do not recognize the original battery, it means some wrong information is stored in its software data, to override this please open the camera take out the small memory backup lithium battery, short the battery contact , after a five minutes connect that battery again.

My camera is showing battery exhausted when i turn on the nikon camera i purchased a new battery and am still getting the same problem


You can try using Lithium batteries (Energizer Ultimate Lithium) instead of an alkaline battery. If you are using brand new, high-power batteries and are still getting this message, there may be a short or some defect within the camera itself that is causing the batteries to drain unnecessarily fast.

My camara quickly runs out of battery


Here are the steps for the low power problem: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera.

Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)

Err message on my S2 Pro


Try removing the lens, the memory card, and the lithium batteries. With freshly charged AA batteries, turn the camera on. If it comes on without the "err" message in that case, your problem lies with the memory card, the lens, or the lithium batteries. Turn off the camera and add these things until you encounter the problem again.

For a lens, check to make sure the electronic contacts are clean and that the lens gets fully twisted into place, and that if there is an aperture lock, that the aperture is set to the smallest possible aperture (22 or 16, usually).

For the memory card, reformat it elsewhere if it is causing problems. The Fuji S2 is notorious for being picky about memory cards.

Lithium batteries that are slightly run-down can cause all sorts of issues. Your S2 doesn't need to use lithium batteries, except for the built-in flash. You can add an extra AA battery pack to replace the lithium batteries, and that will improve the camera's reliability.

The camara will come on with fully charged batteries and u can look through the pictures. but u cannot take new photos! when i turn it to the take photo button the camara turns its self off


I'm not sure what model camera you have, but it's possible that you may be using the wrong type. If your camera uses AA batteries, make sure that you are using lithium batteries instead of regular alkaline ones. The lithium batteries are a lot better for digital devices and they will last a lot longer too. However, they are a little more expensive. You can find them anywhere they sell batteries. They're the energizer e2 ones in the blue package.

Buying a Camara


Hey Dussan,
Three camera's that might work for you are the Nikon P80, Panasonic DMC-FZ50K, and the Sony DSC-H50. All three of theses camera's have a 12x optical zoom and up, they are all 9 mega pixel and up, they all have movie mode, they all use lithium-ion batteries, and they are all around the same price as the Canon. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Are you using Lithium batteries?

ALL Kodak cameras have huge problems with alkaline batteries.

Hope this helps.

CAMARA SOFTWARE PROBLEM


Does your battery work with regular AA alkaline batteries ? They have higher voltage than NiMH rechargeable. I'm having a similar problem, just discovered today that my camera works fine with AA alkaline batteries.
