Re: Battery Problem or camera

I use rechargable batteries (of the 2400 miliampers type) and they last more that the regular alkaline ones. If you take a lot of pics by night and have activated the red eyes feature (double flash), you will consume a lot of batteries !!

Battery won't hold a full charge

batteries don't have a life forever. And no one can predict the life time of a battery.
So many factors influence the lifetime. But if it is draining very fast, this mostly means it has reached the end of life. If the camera does not get excessive hot, it has nothing to do with the camera. It is just you need a new battery.
To keep a battery in shape for a longer time you should charge it also when the camera is not used. Like at least 4 times a year. Always charge the battery a day before you plan to use it. Don't over charge, like charging it every day. Don't leave it in the bright sun or on a hot place.
A new battery, should be charged and discharged a few times, before it gets a full charge.
The "New" battery you bought, could be in stock for a long time. Special when you could buy it very cheap.
Perhaps in a few days you say, he the battery works fine now. But if you did charge it 3 or more times and it still does not hold a charge. send the battery back (I hope you bought one with warranty)

Battery "memory" is largely a myth. You don't need to discharge nimh and nicad...

I'm not certain which camera models this applies to, but definitely quite a few:
Many of the camera makers to not emphasize that after your rechargeables become low, you still have to use the "discharge" function while in your camera, to drain them adequately, prior to recharging. Otherwise, the "memory" in the battery on how much charge it can take gets lower and lower. If that has happened, try the "discharge" function, which will restore full charge capability

Battery depletes after 60 seconds

I'm afraid that the battery you bought as new, in fact is a battery that was in the shop for years, and can't hold enough power.
If you camera works normal for one minute and does not run hot or even gets warm, I think the battery is not as good as you think.
Can't find since when the camera is around, but my guess is the camera is not that new anymore.
Please recharge the battery and use it, and than recharge it again It could take a few charge cycles, before the battery gets its full capacity, but don't expect wonders.

My Fujifilm FinePix AV100 12MP Digital Camera battery easily gets discharge or Low Battery even the battery is fully charged and new, what do you think the problem might be???

Welcome to FixYa.

First thing we need to verify is what type of battery are you using.

The Capacity of rechargeable Ni-MH batteries may be temporarily reduced when new, after long periods of disuse, or if they are repeatedly recharged before being fully discharged. Capacity can be increased by repeatedly discharging the batteries using the DISCHARGE option and recharging them in a battery charger. Do not use this option with non-rechargeable batteries.

Also possible reason why your battery easily discharge if:

* battery are cold
-warm the battery by placing them in your pocket or other warm place.
* ther is a dirt on the battery terminals
-clean the terminals with soft and dry cloth
* the camera is always on AUTO mode
- choose different shooting mode

I hope this information will help on your issues.
Feel free to send us your comments or suggestion if this solution is helpful.

I have just bought a Nikon D70 body off Ebay (therefore didn't get a userguide) I am trying to charge up my battery which appears to work fine (the light shows up on the charger). When I put the battery in...

This is most likely to be a battery problem. Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. Lithium batteries in particular can fail early if they are allowed to become totally discharged.

The best way to check is to buy a new battery, then try to charge it. If it charges and the camera works, problem solved.

If it doesn't charge, then you will need a new charger. The battery will not be wasted though, as it is always handy to have a spare.

I insert a new battery and go to a party. I switched on the camera and after some time the camera asks to change the battery and turned off. Change the battery and the same thing happens. The camera worked...

If you've recharged this battery many times over the past two years, it may be at the end of its useful life. Always run the battery down before recharging to extend its life. Also, don't ever let it completely discharge by leaving it for a long will die.

Hi, I was wondering why I cannot use rechargeable batteries in my camera? Everytime I put them in, the battery icon flashes as if they were dead and I know they are fully charges.

Sometimes when the battery is no longer functional, a charger will say it is fully charged but the camera knows it has no life. I experienced this with my Canon Powershot Pro and had to get a new one.

Batteries can lose their ability to recharge if they have been dropped, recharged too often when they were not fully discharged, or just plain reached the end of their life, as happens with most things.

However, if you are using ordinary rechargeable batteries (not proprietory ones), and you have tested them on another appliance and know they are good, then the problem must be with the camera.

Battery fully charged but cannot use camera. Applied new batteries works in review mode only Fuji Fine Piix F420

My camera had a similar problem. It would work only in review mode and as soon as photo/film mode was selected it went dead. What I did was 'discharge' the battery totally and then fully recharged it. This can be done by going to Menu-Option-Setup-Discharge. After I had done this the camera stopped going dead but the battery still had a very poor lifespan. I bought a new battery and now the camera works as new. Hope this helps-Steve.
