    Yes I do have this same problem. I've tried every kind of high quality battery and it still sucks the life out of it almost instantly. My husband says thats just the way it is, but there has to be something wrong with this thing.

    I have tried all different kinds on AA batteries and all have the same results. What kinds should I use?

    I have the same problem, too. I would fully charge my batteries, but after a few pictures it would either say that the batteries were too low to take pictures, or that they were depleted. I tried regular batteries, to make sure that my rechargeable ones weren't the problem, but I got the same thing.

    Needless to say, my next camera will NOT be an HP one.

    I also have a kodak and the same happened with that. The solution was to use the kodak batteries which hold their charge for hundreds of pics. I recently received an HP 735 which was old but still working. The same happened. It had duracell batteries in. I put in a set of fully charged kodak batteries and the symbol showed a full charge. Then I took 3 pics and the symbol went right down to quarter. It still took pics though. But yes this is a problem. There are still lots of these cameras about. So come on HP ... tell us why!!!!

I've a smart UPS 1000VA SU1000INET I've had new batteries fitted. I put on to charge everything seemed ok. Went back to it about 2 hours later to find the 6 middle lights flashing.

Friend you did not tell us if there was correct output voltage after charging and the voltage after 2 hours. However, there could be a short circuit that drains the batteries,was the system left on for the 2 hours, are the batteries of a standard?Good Luck from Ukachi Edwin

I got this camera a few years ago for Christmas and unfortunatley it is the worst camera I've ever had as far as battery life. I can take 2 or 3 pictures and then it shows low battery. I've replaced new...

It seems there is some where inside the camera leakage.. Are you using Li-ion rechargeable batteries or AA batteries For previously cameras, always comes with AA batteries, and most of the battery are with low capacity.

How long can you let a new corvette sit before the battery runs down

With a good quality new battery it should be fine for one year or so, type of battery is important also, conventional car batteries tend to lose around 5% of their power each month or so.

I try to turn on my camera and the lens comes out but then goes right back in and beeps as if the batteries are low but I know they aren't. I can still view the pictures I have already taken by pressing...


i know its sounds odd but yes the charge on the batteries (Voltage/Amps) is falling short for the camera to start as it takes more power to run the camera than to just preview your pictures

one suggestion i can give here is
(this could be potentially hezardous so tread caution)
if you have rechargale batts then try electro jump to them take any source which is roughly 2-3times the voltage of the batteries (eg: if the batt voltage is 1.25 volts take a 3-5volts source) and connect the +ve wire to the +ve and -ve wire to the -ve of the battery and hold for 10 to 15 secs and then immediatly place it for charging and let them fill charge and use them till the batteries are completely drained
repeat this cycle for 2 -3 times and batteries will come back to life

be careful to connect the wires correctly else they might destroy the batts also not to hold for more than 10-15 secs

pls rate if this was any help

Camera batteries drain quickly

Open the battery door and check the contact between the camera and the batteries. Most often then not there is just a bad contact and it's ruinning your baterry life.
Make sure that the contact are well placed and that there is no rust or dirt build up around there.
