I would suggest you to not to use that camera to prevent any further damage. You should take your camera to the nearest service centre immediately (before using it again). Using the camera after a short circuit can damage it completely. So please get it repaired first. Thanks

Even with a freshly charged battery, my coolpixs570 will not turn on...are my batteries dead? is my camera in need of repair?


It could be the batteries. It could be the battery charging circuit in your camera. Try charging the batteries in an external charger that you know for a fact is working properly. That will tell you if it is the camera's charging circuit or the batteries. If it is the camera's charging circuit, it will cost less to use an external charger then to repair the camera.

A voltage test alone cannot determine if the battery is good unless you can have the current rating of the battery tested. So if the camera comes on after a charge it seems that the battery is not retaining current for the camera to boot on.
It will be good to check the current factor with an external load so as to confirm if this is the fault of the battery. If not there is shorting or high draining of voltage in the electronic circuit of the camera which needs a serious check.

Anomalous charging behaviour :- a) plug in discharged battery b) starts off with the yellow light flashing as usual c) after a very short time the lamp goes off completely - instead of staying on...


Okay, might not be reading this right but here goes. If the camera shows the batteries as full then I'd go with that. The charger will come on for a few seconds even with a freshly charged battery because it take that long for the charger to realize the battery is already full. You can't feed an already full battery, so the charger is shutting off completely. Yes normally the light would stay on and the charger would continue to trickle a charge into it it until it is removed. In your case I think you have those batteries stuffed to the gills so the charger is shutting right down. One of the problems with these batteries is as much as the manufacturers deny it they form a memory. Best thing to do with these rechargeable batteries is drain them right down and then replace with a freshly recharged battery.

The following table summarizes how AA batteries perform in different types of use. Type of Use Alkaline NiCd Ni-MH Oxyride Photo Lithium Most economical when taking more than 30 pictures per month Poor Good Good Poor Fair Most economical when taking less than 30 pictures per month Fair Fair Fair Fair Good Heavy use of flash, frequent pictures Poor Good Good Fair Good Heavy use of video Poor Good Good Fair Good Heavy use of Live View Poor Good Good Fair Good Overall battery life Poor Fair Fair Fair Good Low temperature/winter use Poor Good Fair Poor Good Infrequent use (without dock) Fair Fair Fair Fair Good Infrequent use (with dock) Fair Good Good Fair Good Recharge batteries No Yes Yes No No Solution three: Make sure that your batteries are completely charged Follow the steps below for your battery type: Ni-MH rechargeable batteries Ni-MH batteries lose charge, or self-discharge, at a rate of one to two percent per day, whether they are installed in the camera or not. This means that if a battery is fully charged, after several weeks, the battery will be low or dead even if it was not installed in the camera or if it was installed in the camera but no pictures were taken. Ni-MH batteries are best for those who use the camera frequently and recharge often. The amount of charge that Ni-MH batteries can hold gradually decreases because of usage, aging, and lack of maintenance. To maintain your batteries at maximum capacity, "condition" them when they are new or have not been used for over a month. Follow these steps to maintain (condition) your batteries:
  1. Completely discharge the batteries by using the camera normally until it will not operate.
  2. Recharge the batteries.
  3. Do this three or four times.
NiCd rechargeable batteries Nickel-cadmium (NiCd) batteries lose charge or self-discharge at a rate of one percent per day. Store NiCd batteries in a cold place such as the refrigerator or freezer to minimize the loss. To store in a cold place, place the batteries in a tightly sealed container to keep the moisture out. Before using them, warm the batteries to room temperature. The amount of charge that Ni-Cd batteries can hold gradually decreases because of usage, aging, and lack of maintenance. To maintain your batteries at maximum capacity, "condition" them when they are new or have not been used for over a month. Follow these steps to maintain (condition) your batteries:
  1. Completely discharge the batteries by using the camera normally until it will not operate.
  2. Recharge the batteries.
  3. Do this three or four times.
Alkaline, Photo Lithium, and Oxyride non-rechargeable batteries Make sure that the batteries are new and have not been used for anything else. . Solution seven: Try a new set of batteries If you have tried all the solutions described above but your batteries still do not last very long, try a new set of batteries. If the old batteries are damaged, a fresh set of batteries will solve the problem. Batteries can be damaged in the following ways:
  • NiCd and Ni-MH batteries can be damaged by over-charging. After a battery has been recharged, do not try to add additional charge to the battery by sending it through another recharge cycle before using it.
  • Batteries can be damaged by dropping or sudden impacts. Even if there is no apparent external damage, the rechargeable battery could later develop an internal short or leak while in the camera and cause damage.
  • If batteries have become wet, they may short out and will not work properly.

The main batter will not hold its charge when left in the camera.


After 12 months use camera batteries will not hold a true charge, but they can still be used for clocks, or remotes. Buy new ones. We all have the same problem.

Digital rebel battery drain with flash only


I would suspect the batteries

Ive got an eos Rebel think its just over 4 years old
for the last year its been used every weekend for several hours 300+ pics per weekend between 2 nights I found that recently where one battery would last a night the battery was running out midway through & also taking longer to charge afterwards

2 after market replacements cost me about £10 and things are back to normal

5 years is a pretty good lifespan for a battery so its probably just getting old

Empties batteries in 2 minutes


please insert a new pair of batteries and check weather the camera starts in proper manner. does the flash charges. normally even if the camera operates and switches on in proper manner but if there is any problem in the flash section the flash does not fires or do not charge. and if there is a short circuit in the flash section that will result in warming and consuming up the batteries in no time. the heatin of the batteries itself indicates that there is a short curcuit in the camera.
