batteries don't have a life forever. And no one can predict the life time of a battery.
So many factors influence the lifetime. But if it is draining very fast, this mostly means it has reached the end of life. If the camera does not get excessive hot, it has nothing to do with the camera. It is just you need a new battery.
To keep a battery in shape for a longer time you should charge it also when the camera is not used. Like at least 4 times a year. Always charge the battery a day before you plan to use it. Don't over charge, like charging it every day. Don't leave it in the bright sun or on a hot place.
A new battery, should be charged and discharged a few times, before it gets a full charge.
The "New" battery you bought, could be in stock for a long time. Special when you could buy it very cheap.
Perhaps in a few days you say, he the battery works fine now. But if you did charge it 3 or more times and it still does not hold a charge. send the battery back (I hope you bought one with warranty)
you could try the new lithium primary batteries .. i think your camera uses AAA batteries .... the lithiums have a higher voltage output than normal cells and they last much longer .. they cost more but they cost about the same when you consider how long they last ..and the price is coming down .. so before long they will be a bargan ... worth a try anyhow to prove your theory of high trip point .. if you are using rechargables then some of those have a lower voltage than others .... many have a very high self discharge rate .. so you have to charge them just before you use them ... there is some new type batteries available that have a very low self discharge rate ... they are a new version of NiMH and they can stay charged for a year ... one is called hibred ??? another "eneloop" .. and i cant remember the others but you can look for "low self discharge NiMH ..the terminal voltage is slightly higher and they can be charged many more times then normal NiMH ... .
Try putting in regular batteries and see if it will turn on. The rechargeable batteries might be over-taxed and won't recharge. My Olympus camera works just as good on regular batteries as on the rechargeable ones. It is easier to come up with regular batteries than having to always run to the docking station to recharge the original batteries. I hope this works for you.
Are you using a SD card or using the internal memory? The trigger mechanism on these cameras are not the best. They are slow and sometimes wouldn't go off with an elaphant standing in front of it and other times it trips from the wind, shadow, or a tweety bird. You get what you pay for. These are some of the cheapest cameras out there and in my opinion some of the best even with all their little problems and quirks. I have bought 21 of them and I have 17 currently in the field with the other 4 dead in the garage. Like all electronics they will eventualy die. If Moutrie still made them I would buy 20 more as the 6 volt system is by far better than any "D" cell camera out there. I get between 300-800 photos per battery charge. I have a Leaf River and 2 Cuddleback cameras that I paid over $400 for and would trade them for these little $89.00 Moutrie's if I could.
Hey jackie jean, If the two year extended warranty you are talking about is a performance service plan purchased at a Best Buy™ store then you could bring the camera into a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store, and they should be able to send it out for service at no charge to you. I am assuming you formatted the memory card in the camera, but if this is not the case and you have formatted the memory card using your computer then I would suggest formatting the memory card in the camera. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
Someone on here with the same problem mentioned that they shook the camera violently and it fixed the problem of it not focusing. I tried the same thing and actually gave it some light slaps on the tabletop. Well, now it works! I'm somewhat concerned that this fix won't last long.
Like many others' FE-230s, this camera began not focusing shortly after the one year warranty expired. I found my receipt and it turns out that I purchased the 2 year service plan at Best Buy and could get the camera replaced. But, now it works. Will it fail again after the 2 year plan expires? Jeez....
This is a symptom commonly listed for DiMAGE cameras listed on EBay for 'parts only'. Dropping the camera I had caused the same problem and carefully 'smacking' the camera once again did solve the problem but that may have been dumb luck. Sorry but it is a service task that may cost more than the camera.
