Use Lithium batteries. Standard batteries will not last.

SOURCE: my camera won't turn on. I put in brand new

AA batteries can be placed in the camera the wrong way around. They can also cause corrosion of the battery contacts if left in for long periods or run down. I would check these two things before assuming a fault.

CX7300 Digital camera won't turn on. New batteries get hot after being put in the camera after a few minutes.

No. This camera requires service/repairs, the repairs will be more than this model camera is worth !!!!

Whenever I put new batteries into my Canon Powershot A480, I get the same thing - I get the 'Low Battery' red flashing light. And Then as I go to take a picture it shuts off and says ; Change The Batties....

I've got the same problem with 2 A 480 canon. I put in NiMH batteries and they work fine. If you put in slightly drained used batteries they work!! Nimh batteries are 1.2 volts and Alkaline are 1.5 volts. There is definitly a problem with this camera. I measured the voltages of brand new batteries 1.51 volts each and they didn't work. I put in some old batteries 1.4 and 1.42 volts and they worked fine.

Empty batteries

Your camera may have been in wet conditions. So "short cut" may have been occurerd. Please firstly put your camera in a hot and dry room. Wait at least one day. After that process. Try again to use with brand new batteries. It will work I think.

My kodak C160 won't turn on,its brand new,i think the batteries are dead,they r new too,but should i change them?

take a good look in the way you put them ..also insert only good alkaline batteries ..cause this things will not open with cheap needs something really good like Duracell ...or so...and another thing ...always get the batteries out of the camera when you are not taking pictures...if you take a look in tha manual it says the same ..the discharge themselves even if the camera is not has something to do with internal consumers..
so ..even if the batteries are good alkaline ...and new..if they were left a few days in the camera ...change them ...when you go to the store also may try a few ones to see which kind it is powering it on..cause I also had problems with new ones...and pretty good...
sometimes just do not supports certain kind It may have something to do with the amperage

Digital Camera

Unfortunately this camera is very bad for battery life because the zoom lens itself takes up alot of power. I would have the same problem with putting fresh batteries in and they would only last a couple of minutes.
I went to Blacks and asked their opinion and they suggested a Lithium Ion battery which came with the charger.
The charge only takes 30 minutes and I have been using my camera all week and the batteries are still going strong!
The price for the pack and charger together was a about $29 and it was totally worth the money

OBSCENELY short battery life in PowerShot A40 :-(

You need to use Nimh battery specifically designed for digital
camera use with high ampacity usage.

Battery Problems

I had problem with the "brand new" battereis that came with camera (date on batteries was thru 2014) ... after 2 or 3 pictures ... camera would not work. I replaced with fresh batteries ... works great now. I checked voltage on shipped batteries (that came with camera) ... was about 1.3 volts ... new battereis should be 1.55+ volts. This suggests that shipped "brand new| batteries ... are not "brand new". I called Polaroid .. best I got was "sorry" ... and "call Duracell".
