Remove battery for a minute and insert it again.

There is a Battery Type setting in the Menu of your camera.

Do the following:
- Press Menu/ Ok button
- Go to Set Up 2
- Scroll down to Battery Type

Two options under Battery Type:
- Alkaline- if you are using non- rechargeable battery
- NiMH- if you are using rechargeable battery

How long does a battery last in a vehicle

This depends upon the quality of the car battery, and how you take care of it. If it is in a car and the car is driven daily, you should expect the battery will last 5-7 years.

If the car is not driven for extended periods of time, a battery tender should be placed on the battery, and failure to do this can ruin a battery. If it is a boat battery, during the off season the battery should be removed from the boat and a battery tender put on the battery.
If your battery has removeable caps on the top, make sure the battery is filled to the interal ring with distilled water. It is especially important to do this before charging a dead battery.

Do not store batteries directly on cement (place a piece of 2x4 under it). I know why, but batteries stored directly on the cement seem to die much faster and have a shorter overall life.

How to make the battery life of a rechargeable electronic device last longer.

Have you noticed how the more you use a rechargeable appliance, the shorter it's battery life is? I don't know the exact reason, but what makes sense in my mind is that if you let the battery run out over, and over, and over, there is a little bit of the charge that you cannot recover and use, thus making the life of the battery shorter, thus giving you less time with the appliance. I have experienced this with my first Nintendo DS, which after letting the battery die over and over, would charge for hours on end and only last for a little bit more than half an hour. The way to stop this from happening is quite simple. I have a second generation Ipod, which i have had for about 3 years, and it still has almost full battery life. The trick is to keep the battery more than halfway charged all the time. The only, I repeat, the ONLY time you want the battery to run out is the first use. Yes, that is the opposite of what I just said, but it works. Trust me. I bought a new DS and used the same tactic, though i dont know if it was more than half a battery, and I have had it for almost 4 years, and the only thing wrong with it is the right trigger. I've dropped it several times on the trigger, and that is why sometimes it doesn't work. So, next time you buy a rechargeable appliance, keep this in mind.

Solo 9100 battery

Well, 8 years is an excellent life for any laptop battery. Being that old it will either be a nicad or nimh battery, both of which suffer from battery memory. There is very little you can do. Sometimes, charging the battery as much as possible, REMOVE IT FROM THE LAPTOP, put it into a plastic bag, seal it against moisture, and then put it into a freezer for 12 hours. Replace it into the laptop, charge it again, repeat twice more. If the battery has a bit of life in it you may be able to reclain SOME of it's capacity back. This is a last ditch effort, and should be carried out as a last option. That leaves either buying a new battery, this eBay link will take you to one

It's probably time to replace the whole laptop though.
Hope this helps

I have a ivitar dvr545 digital camera, it seems nt to take a charge. from what i cn tell about the battery it looks ok ( no bubbling). i get a red ligt when its on charge. but no power after itcarging for...

Let's try this.
If it is not the battery, then it could be the charger.
Not sure how old this camera is.
Your battery has a limited life, like all rechargeable batteries. The life on the older batteries can be dependent on how it is used and how many times it is recharged. The newer batteries have better life expectancy than the older technology.
I think if I wanted to use the camera that the first thing I would do is to buy a new battery from a source such as Ebay Batteries for this camera range in prices from about $5.06 to over $12.00 plus shipping which can be over $12.00.
You will have to decide whether you want to get a battery from a retailer such as Walmart or a photo store. I am sure that the price will still be more than a generic one.
Batteries can look ever so good, and be completely of no use.
It is interesting, though that out of the many batteries I have used for my digital cameras I have fixed and used, only a few have died.
I have taken thousands of pictures with different kinds of cameras to see the batteries last very well.

Dell Inspiron 6400 Battery

your miracle,most laptop batteries have a life span of 4 years tops,but that if you take care of it,but most dont realize over charging kills the cells in your battery,and if you have it plugged up make sure you go into power settings and put it on ac/dc power settings.and if you have it away from home without power,put it on best battery settings,and let the power die all the way down before recharging,that will give it a full charge lasting longer.but as for your battery it might be time for a new one

Battery life seems very short, now won't power up with new AA's

Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may have reached their shelf life, and though brand new may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Retailers sell these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Screen is blank

You tell me that you tried new batteries. Have you tried a set of NiMH batteries? They are the best for digital cameras. Please try a set, preferably ones rated 2200 or higher. If this doesn't help, the lens could be jammed. Hang onto the batteries though, because they are rechargeable and can be used in anything that takes AA batteries.
