Re: kjkkkkkk

I tried rechargeable batteries and they didn't last very long at all, like a few hours even. I tried E2 (Energizer) and they worked great. Maybe try these. If it doesn't work, then something else is wrong, contact your local store to see they can test the same at the store.

My camera wont turn on or work even after i put brand new batteries in it... whats wrong with it???

If your batteries did not leak at all, and corrode th points where the. Batteries make contact, then it could be something very serious on the main board, or something simple like the on/off switch. Really it's the sort of problem that needs to be seen by someone. I'd check the battery connections first, then make absolutely sure the batteries are going in the right way around. Flat end is - and pointed tip end is +. Good luck

My camera wont stay on it bleeps once then turns off

That sounds like your battery could be dead/not hold a charge. If you've charged your battery already and your camera still won't stay off and turns off right away, it's time to purchase a new battery for your Samsung TL105.

You can purchase replacement batteries quite cheap here:

My A630 wont turn on very well and when it does it doesn't stay on. I just put brand new batteries in it and it is not working properly.

What kind of battery you are using ?. Use only Rechargeable batteries and look in the battery box if the contacts are clean. If you see spots of stain on them, clean with a bit of paper towell and alcohol until the contacts are shiny and clean.

When I turn my camera on it stays on for a few seconds and then shuts itself off. I even put brand new batteries in it and it does the same thing

1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)

Despite new batteries, still says 'change batteries'

Make sure there has been no corrosion on the battery terminals. If there is take a fine grit sand paper and carefully rub on them.

Camera wont stay turned on even with new batteries

Ashley, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in today's digital camera. Some brands may have reached their shelf-life in the store, and may have problems just powering startup of the camera right out of the package.

Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. These days many retailers sell these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many, many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah. Avoid brands that do not list the power rating on the package or batteries.

My camera dies way too fast

If you use a lot of batteries, it is a good idea to have a battery meter (tester). Radio shack has one for about $5. I say this because I've seen a lot of "brand new" batteries that aren't any good, especially imports. AA, AAA, C,D batteries should all read at least 1.5 volts dc. Under test, if the battery voltage drops slowly, it is bad. A very good battery will actually show a slight increase in voltage under load. Make sure the polarity (+,-) of the batteries installed is correct.
If you are sure you have the correct memory card and it still doesn't stay in, it could be that the retainer tab is broken. If this is the case, try inserting a small piece of paper as a shim, and that may hold it in place.
If the camera is under warranty, you may want to return it.
I hope this helps.

My samsung wont turn on

It's not the camera. Are your batteries suggested for digital camera use? Have you checked the expiry date? this camera is quite the battery ****- even if your batteries show up as fully charged, a lot of brand's don't have enough power to support this camera, so MAKE sure you buy good batteries.
