There's always the possibility that your new batteries are defective, or that your charger is not working properly, but the problem you describe is frequently due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean cloth (heavy corrosion buildups may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment, clean the contacts at both ends of the batteries, and reinstall them in the camera. Assuming that the batteries are fresh/fully charged, this takes care of about 90% of the startup problems. I hope it works for you.

The camera we purchased won't take more than 4 0r5 pictures before it says low battery and won't take more pictures. recentlu when we put in new batteries it says low battery.


You did not say what kind of batteries you are using. If they are AA rechargeables they need to be recharged if they havenot neen used for a while. Say if you took 4 or 5 pictures, the batteries died, you charged them but did on use the camera again for several weeks. When you do they will be dead again, that in the nature of rechargables, they lose charge just sitting there. Solution find the Sanyo Enteloop or Rayovac Hybrid brands, these next generation rechargables have a shelf life similar to NiCads.

As batteries are recharged- they develop a 'memory' That is to say starting with a new fully charged battery- the 'low' light may come in when the voltage drops below a certain value. The battery is not however fully discharged. It could have say 25% residual in it. When recharging- the charger is charging the 75% only, and on the next recharge- that mush less again until the battery is only offering a small percentage of its capacity. The answer is to put the low battery in a simple device - a torch - until it is completely down Then recharge - you will then get the full capacity of the battery. Meanwhile do contact the Tech support of the manufacturer just in case there is a known problem with a given model.
