Newly charged batteries don't work

Newly charged batteries don't take more than 10 pictures before the charge battery light comes one; yet the playback works. Have tried a different charger and different batteries; same story. I have a Canon Powershot S2 IS.

My blackberry curve 8520 is at low battery and wont charge or show the charge lightning bolt

King, many times this happen, don't worry, put your device on charge 2 to 5hours it will solved, if problem persist, change battery, because this sounds me a only battery problem. there is one another way (if you are not sure don't try this) we call that direct charging
first take one charger who has light on head and then cut the charging connector of charger and then you will see two colours of wires separate the black and red wires (red wire is positive line and black is negative line) and then connect to current supply but make sure there wire are separated otherwise it will have a short circuit and then take battery and search + and - connector and then red wire connect on battery positive connector and black on negative connector if you connect properly you will see the charging light are getting dim. that mean it is charging, do direct charge for 10 min and then switch on your device with battery and put in charge normally. this will solve your problem. if my sugetion was helpful please rate it.

I want to charge a newly activated vrla battery with a automaticly charger 800mA,is this possible? Or is it nessecary too charge my new 14Ah battery with 1.4A charger for the first time? grtz Toon Janssen

well now you should never charge a battery with more that its C-10 rate that is 1 - 10th its amp hours so if your battery is 14ah then its 1 - 10th charge rate of ie:1.4ah,,, so you wonting to use an 800ma charger will trickel charge it just fine as thats near as d*m it C20 half of whats the C10 for this battery is so hook it up its fine and wont over charge it and it should be fully charged in 17.5 hours,,,
if your going to lay the bike up for any time its a good idear to get one of them 2.5 watt solar chargers hook it up to the battery and forget about it i do it with my bikes (bmw 750 with a 35ah battery) over every winter and when i go back to it in the spring it fires up first time every time there fairly cheap and it only needs day light to work,,,free power!!! cant be all bad!
my solar charger cost £20 off of e-bay,, best $20 i ever spent too, my battery is now 4 years old and still going strong as i never let it go flat,,,
sound advice from an old biker!!!

Built-in flash not working

Please shoot in P mode. In P mode it will use the flash if you pop it up and not use it if it is down.

The flash uses LOTS of battery power. If you battery is weak the flash may take a long time to recycle (charge).

The Flash must be popped up and READY before you can use it. The flash is charged or READY when the RED light is on.

I hope this helps.

My psp will only turn on for about 10 seconds and turn off there is no picture during that time what do i do

It sounds like a problem with your rechargeable battery. when you charge it, is it showing a full charge -- should be after around 45 minutes. wosrt case is you'll need a replacement battery from Sony.
