I have a Z981 Camera. I will be out of the country for a few weeks. Can I take a supply of Alkaline "AA" batteries to use. Recharging will be a problem, but I don't want to damage my...

Yes, alkaline batteries will work fine. You might want to consider lithiums instead, however. They cost more but last longer, so you won't need to carry as many.

I have a Nikon coolpix L18 and can only take around 10 pics wiht it, with alkaline aa batteries, before I get the message "batteries exhausted". What can I do? Is the camer defective?

Well, alkaline batteries don't last long in a power-draining camera like the Coolpix. Try some rechargeables and keep spares fully charged.

Flashing Light

I have had a HP Photosmart 945 for a few years now. A few days ago was the first time I saw my camera experience the problem described above. I thought something is wrong with the on-bard logic.

Replacing my batteries (4x2300mAh NiMH AAs) with four other freshly charged batteries of the same kind didn't fix it. The camera's LCD kept flashing on and off for almost an hour until my family got tired of it and turned it off by removing the batteries.

I just replaced the rechargeable batteries with four regular alkaline batteries and now suddenly it works. Go figure.

The moral is that changing the batteries sometimes helps. When it works, it will get your camera going for a while. The problem, however, doesn't seem to be battery-related or I would have seen it a long time ago with smaller-capacity batteries like alkaline AAs. Something is very wrong with the camera itself, that much is clear.

Best-case scenario now is that I have an unreliable camera that can give out at any moment. For example today it died in mid-shot and almost spoiled a family event. For me the solution was "get a non-HP camera".

I hope this helps someone out there.

Can't buy enough batteries

Don't bother with alkaline batteries. They are useless in digicams, and particularly so with some Samsung models. Use rechargeables, or "oxyride" high current disposables.

There may be a setting in the menu for which type of battery you are using, which may help, but still, you are better off not using alkalines. The stupid part is, cameas are often shipped with alkalines in the box! Great way to dissapoint customers! (

Red light flashing

I had the same problem last night. It went away when I recharged the AA batteries.

HP 945

I have had this problem with my 945 as well, the only way I could get it to stop was to take the batteries out and leave them out for a while.

Popular alkaline batteries are inexpensive and can be found anywhere, but their power is consumed at a rapid rate. If you're using all of your camera's features, you can deplete a set of alkaline batteries in about 30 minutes! You should consider spending a little more up front for a battery charger and some rechargeable batteries. Many cameras (including many HP Photosmart digital cameras) work with the popular, rechargeable nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries. They are inexpensive and environmentally friendly, and they give you more pictures per charge than any other battery types, except for lithium-ion batteries—another battery of choice for many HP Photosmart cameras.
