That is a common problem only solved by purchasing rechargeable batteries and a battery recharger. The flash on digital cameras use massive amounts of battery storage. If you do a lot then get about 8 batteries and a matching recharger.

Power problem


HI,

Try taking out your batteries and then taking out your memory card. Put back in batteries. Turn on camera.

If this works, just put back in your memory card and try again. Sometimes the memory card hangs and you need to pop it in and out.

Try deleting all the pic's from your memory cards.And reset camera to factory defaults.It seems a good idea to format the memory cards also.I had this problem with my batterys.It drove me crasy.But now she's like a new camera again.

The camera was plugged to computer and downloaded photos. I left the camera plugged in and batteries went dead. Now camera won't turn on.


Hindsight is a wonderful thing and it is not a good idea to download from camera to pc using batteries because if the batteries go dead you can lose all your images. If you download again put new batteries in first or better still put the memory card straight into a pc or a printer and view and print from the card, or if possible fine out if you can buy a mains lead for your type of camera.Try reformating your card either through a card reader or from the camera with FRESH batteries and it should work again.The file/directory structure was probably corrupted when the camera was trying to work with dying batteries. Let me know if this helps

Batteries go dead when trying to download pictures to my computer


Transferring pictures takes a huge chunk of electricity out of the batteries. The solution to this, is to use a memory card reader to download the pics. That way, you don't have to use the camera's batteries up downloading.

Sony DSC-W110 Hi, my camera was workign fine, plugged it into the computer to take some pictures off and the camera froze. Powered the camera down powered it back up and it froze again. Powered it down...


First, stop plugging it into the computer. Next, remove the card and battery, press all the buttons, leave it alone for 20 minutes, insert the card and then the battery (which I'm assuming is fully charged), turn it on. To download your pics in the future, use a separate card reader.

I keep constantly charging my rechargable batteries and trying normal ones too but they don't last long in the camera why are they loosing power so quickly even when the camera isn't on?


Having the same problem without taking any pictures. I put the fully charged batteries in the camera the night before and that morning the batteries are completely dead. I researched a few forums including the HP website and it said it could be linked to memory card being formatted incorrectly and it hangs the camera up inadvertently leaving the camera on. It also says that contacts could also be the problem. I have also read where a few other types of HP cameras users were having the same problem as I. I do not think it has anything to do with having higher strength batteries. I should at least be able to get a few pics in before the batteries die. There is definitely some type of battery drain going on when the camera is in the off position.

I'd say definitely a card problem.

It's also best to use cards with high speed data transfer in this camera.

Especially when travelling, it's best to carry a few cards, not only for storage capacity, but as back-up in case a card develops a fault. If you rely on only one card and it fails.... you may lose all your pics, so carry a few spares... same with batteries.. and ALWAYS use lithium batts in ANY Kodak camera... they have huge problems with alkalines.

Hope this helps... happy shooting and enjoy your trip.

Can view memory card but wont power up to take pics


Try using brand new fully charged rechargeable batteries like NiMH or NiCd. Also try viewing though the computer via USB.
