  • The HTsi & HTsi Plus cameras do not take AA batteries. They take two CR2 batteries. One AA battery will only be 1.5 volts. The CR2 batteries are 3 volts each, providing 6 volts to the camera(when you have 2 installed). So if you insert a AA battery, there is not a high enough voltage to allow the camera to operate, which is why it doesn't do anything in your case. The AA battery will not damage the electronics of the camera, but it may physically damage the "battery compartment door" if you have to force it closed.
  • There is a slide-type button on the back that is labeled "Lock . . On".
    The "On" mode is just that, it turns the camera on. The "Lock" mode is actually the "Off" mode.

How long do Kodak KLIC-7001 batteries usually last? I just bought a new charger (K7700) for my battery and when I put it in the green light flashes and then the red and then goes right off. Why is this...


the battery might be bad. One thing I learned with drills, is to never charge a battery directly after use (if it feels warm), and do not use when warm from the charger. I'm not sure on specialized batteries, but normal batteries like AA, AAA etc. only last about one year or so.

6 AA Batteries generate how many amps


If this is a battery powered CD player,
we are talking mA not amps.....6 x 1.5volt batteries give you 9 volts
I would recommend something like this:-

Polaroid A500 digital camera pressed ON button, nothing happened with new AA batteries and SD card


Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

I got a dx4530 w/easyshare Dock II. from a friend of mine. He had been using AA batteries and it worked fine. I went to Best Buy and bought 2 Ni-MH batteries and put them in the camera. I then put the...


In the Kodak cameras of that vintage the original 3V rechargeable battery was made of 2 regular AA rechargeable batteries and a special piece of plastic that pushes some microswitch in the battery compartment. If this piece of plastic is missing, the dock would not charge the batteries. You either need the special CRV3 battery or to charge the normal AA rechargeables with a separate charger.

It will say low battery or will not turn on


If your camera uses AA batteries, you should note the battery type your camera support, and many cameras only support Lithium AA batteries or Alkaline AA batteries, else there maybe note enough voltage, so the camera will note low power. If your camera uses special camera batteries, and maybe you should replace it for a new one.

My Grundig S350 won't turn on. I have replaced the batteries and hit the reset button and still nothing. Please help.


Its Deluxe Version the S350 DL can use two types of batteries: D-size or AA. Inside the battery compartment there is a switch to select the size in use. If you use the AA sie batteries, they will not hold in their locations unless you lower a flap and secure them.
Have you tried to power the radio with the adaptor?

How do you get the camera to charge? I put in new batteries and it still says battery low and shuts off. I have plugged it into the computer and it still won't charge. It won't even turn on.


Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.

Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.

If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or

Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.

I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

Where do you put 3 AA batteries in the Disney Pix Click Wizards of Waverly Place digital camera? I can only find location to put 2 AA... and camera will not work.



  • They all seem to go in the same place. - some only seem to use two - this one uses three

The camera is powered by 3 AA batteries. Only use the battery specified by the manufacturer.
  1. Lift the rubber USB interface cover on the bottom of the camera and gently press the lever to the left.
  2. Lift the faceplate off completely and place it to the side of the camera.
  3. Insert the batteries using the battery polarity symbols (+/-) as a guide.
  4. Replace the faceplate by gently placing it back on the camera body.
  5. Replace the rubber USB cable connection cover on the bottom of the camera.
  6. Turn the camera on by pressing the Power button. To turn the camera off, press the Power button again.
  7. Note: If the camera is not used for one minute, it will automatically shut down. To restart the camera, press the Power button.

The camera will not power up with new batteries installed.


This happened to me too. I did some research and if you were using anything other than alkaline or NIMH batteries (I was using Nicd rechargables) it will fry the circuit board. That's Sony's way of making sure you use their rechargable batteries only (or buying costly alkaline). Our cameras are fried. Time for a new one.
