Question about Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Digital Camera

Open Question

Freshly charged Ni Mh batteries quickly run out

I recently purchased replacement chargeable batteries for my C875 Kodak Easy Share. With a fully charged batterie, I only get a few pictures or about 1/2 hr of camera use before the battery goes out. Or, I put in the freshly charged battery and the camera shuts off within a few minutes, but if I take the battery back out & immediately put it back in, I can get up to the 1/2 hr or 1 hr use mark.

SOURCE: Battery Indicator Flashing and then Camera Shut down

I have the same problem on the same cammera. I sent it to canon and they say they will fix it for free. I have the same problem on a canon a530 and sent it to them also. My wife had droped that one and put a dent in the metal around the lense worked fine but they said they must fix it along with the battery problem at a cost of $108. Give them a call 1800 652 2666.

SOURCE: will not turn on

This is likely the cause of an internal screw that has come loose, it's very common on the G9. A great place to get help with this G9 problem is: camerasandparts.com since they just specialize in these powershots. They not only have the fix available but they have the correction so this never comes back, that comes with their no power service for the G9's automatically. I hope that helps, that's the place if you need help with a powershot, best of luck

SOURCE: I have a Canon G5

Thank you for such a detailed description, wishing others would take your lead. To the problem camera designated batteries (other then AA rechargeable) have always been a bit of a sore spot for me because the user is compelled to purchase a specific battery. As much as I prefer the name brand accessories for the camera there come a point where you just gotta venture forth with third party accessories. There is nothing wrong with using an "off" brand in fact what I've found is that is some cases they are a better battery. Again back to the problem. I grasping thoughts on how to word this but, here goes. As much as the manufactures would like you to believe that these batteries do not form a memory they do. Also the battery can trick you into thinking it's fully charged when in fact even though the charge light is saying completed it's only got about 1/3 charge. I've worked with Canon's BP 511 and now the "new" BP 511A for many years The BP511A or equivalent is the better battery. What needs to be done is to drain those batteries down until they stop, let it cool don't take it from the camera to the charger. Time the battery when you put it on the charger, meaning not to the second but what you would "normally" do is plug the battery into the charger and leave it right. Well what's possibly happening is that within ten minute the ready light is coming on, (something stupid going on in the battery) So check the battery stat of charge after say 15 minutes and if it says it ready (drum roll please) remove the battery unplug the charger for a few seconds and place the battery charger back onto the wall outlet and plug the battery back into the charger and look at your watch again. I've had to do this as much as three times until the thing would get the idea it was to take a charge "normally" about 2 hours will bring it back up. There is no device I've found to completely drain one of these batteries so over a period of time in your case one year the batteries begin this fit. I've since replaced the BP511 for the better BP511A's or equivalent. I'm not pointing a finger because myself and staff do the same thing and pull the battery before going to a shoot if it's showing partial discharge and the thing gets put onto charge and we start this cycle all over again. Be careful of the charger as well meaning don't just disconnect the battery and put it back on charge when it's going the cycle thing disconnect the charger from its power source as well because it holds a memory for a few seconds and will just shut off in a few moments if you don't.

Long story but I've been doing this now for 9 years since the dawn of Canon's 30D Cheers

I understand that your brand is Samsung, but you have listed this as a KODAK camera.

I don't know if this applies to Samsung products as well as a C875 KODAK camera. But I hope it helps if not. Please re-submit your question under the correct brand. Thank you. Trouble shooting is as following:

1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher).

2. Clean the battery contacts.
a. 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.

My camera just does not seem to hold a good battery charge. I use fully charged batteries and this also happens with Duarcell too. I am only using the camera in the "on" selection.


Some digital camera **** the life out of batteries, especially the older ones, even when off. It stores info like date and time etc. I take the batteries out when I am not using it for a while. True it is a pain resetting the time but it saves the batteries. Also go for the top line rechargebles,

Battery life of kodak easy share is 2 pictures ... if that


Please check what type of batteries are these.
Z1085 will only work with LITHIUM AA's, Lithium CRV3 (you have to make sure it's not Ni-mh crv3) and a rechargeable KLIC 8000 Lithium-ion battery pack (the blue one). It will not work with any other type of rechargeable battery but KLIC 8000. If you're trying to use ni-mh rechargeables, it will really not work.

Batteries do not last long at all


You didn't specify a camera model or battery type, so the response has to be general. If you're using rechargeable batteries, make sure that they are the type specified in your camera's manual. If the camera requires Ni-MH batteries and you've been using Ni-Cd, the batteries will run down quickly. Also, if using "standard" (non-chargeable) alkaline batteries, make sure that they are fresh, premium batteries, not store brand batteries.

I hope this solves the problem -- if not, please post again with camera model and the type of battery that you've been using.
