Remove batteru for a minute and insert it again. There is a Battery Type setting in the Menu of your camera.

Do the following:
- Press Menu/ Ok button
- Go to Set Up 2 (icon looks like a wrench with number 2 on it)
- Scroll down to Battery Type

Under Battery Type, there are two options:
- Alkaline- if you are using non- rechargeable battery
- NiMH- if you are using rechargeable battery

Olympus ws500m wont charge to computer


It's not supposed to. The WS-500m uses standard AA batteries, either disposables or rechargeables. If you want to use rechargeables, you must charge them outside the recorder using a separate battery charger.

that means your batteries are not charged fully. I'm assuming you have new fresh batteries? Does the panel stay up long enough to show the charge level?

Change the batteries message keeps appearing even with fresh batteries. The camera turns on then immediately turns off What's up?


This actually a really common problem among Canon point and shoot cameras. There are a couple of methods that have worked well for others.

1. Open the battery compartment and remove the batteries. Then take a regular wooden pencil and place the eraser end down onto the battery contacts. Rotate the pencil to remove any corrosion. Sometimes a lack of proper battery contact will result in the low battery indicator.

2. Take a toothpick and wedge the tip under the battery contact and break it off. This will put more pressure between battery and contacts.

You can also try installing 3rd party firmware at http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK_in_Brief
This is a bit technical and will probably void your warranty, but might be worth the try.

I have loaded 4 new AA batteries and try to take a pic and "battery empty' appears in scrren and will not take a picture.


Be sure to have real fresh alkaline AA of fresh recharged NiMh batteries.

Good rechargeable batteries are Sanyo ENELOOP NiMh batteries, which have a very, very low own discharge. Some other brands have them too.

I changed my batterys and now it wont let me talk or hear threw the mic


What type of batteries did you use? It's best to use new, fresh from the package alkaline AAA's. You can use NiMH rechargeable batteries, but make sure that they're fully charged up. Some say they come fully charged, but they might not be.

My vivacam kills batteries within a few minutes


Do not use alkaline batteries. Buy NiMH rechargables and keep a couple of sets on hand fully charges. ViviCam's eat alkalines alive!

Change batteries message pops up with new batteries


Chargeable batteries usually last for a year or two. Alkaline batteries should only be expected to last for around a dozen shots (as such, NEVER rely on alkaline batteries). Recommend buying another set of NiMH rechargeables. Make sure you get 2500 mah or better power rating (look on the package).

Batter Life


How can I extend my digital camera’s battery life and save money?

Avoid the three main power drains in a digital camera: power cycling, unnecessary flash, and excessive LCD (liquid-crystal display) use. A camera uses power each time it initializes or shuts down, so avoid cycling the camera on and off between shots; you should only turn the camera off when you finish taking pictures.

Also, because it takes energy to use a flash, turn this component off in daylight or high-light areas. Even if your camera doesn’t fire the flash, it takes energy to keep the flash charged.

In addition, the color LCDs used on digital cameras can demand a lot of power (especially if the camera is left on for a prolonged period), so turn off the LCD and use the optical viewfinder rather than the LCD to frame the snapshot. Plus, make sure you only use the LCD sparingly to review your snapshots.

If you haven’t purchased a camera yet, choose one that uses common (low-cost) alkaline batteries rather than the more expensive lithium cells. Most cameras that operate on AA or AAA batteries also will accept rechargeable batteries, which may cost more initially but can easily pay for themselves in the long run. Of course, always refer to a camera’s manual for specific operating suggestions and precautions.

Kindly regards,
micro

S630 lens out and wont turn on


Cameras belonging to the S Series really do have a battery type option that needs to be set up first for proper power connection.

Recommended batteries are just:
- Alkaline (Non-rechargeable)
- Nickel-metal Hydride (Rechargeable)

Just the proper battery type by:

- Pressing MENU/OK button
- Scroll to the right until you are in SETUP 2
- Keep on scrolling down and look for battery type
- Press the right button to pick up on 2 options
like Alkaline and Ni-MH
- Press MENU/OK for changes to be saved
- Keep pressing MENU/OK to get out of the MENU

Once, it's done, camera needs to be turned off for a few seconds
so that settings made will be refreshed with the camera.

As you turn camera on, you're now ready to take many pictures.

ALKALINE (Non-rechargeable) batteries when set to the correct battery type will really take a maximum of 100 pictures.

For the Rechargeable batteries (Ni-MH), when those are fully charged, and the battery type is set to Ni-MH, it will be taking more than a hundred of course.

I hope this help you a lot.
