A tv remote needs an extremely low amount of power. In fact, many people save the batteries from other devices when they stop working and place them in their remotes. Questions to ask yourself...are the batteries old?....have they been recharged many, many times?...have I accidentally allowed them to completely discharge?...have I cleaned the battery contacts in the camera and the batteries themselves with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol?

Just purchased lithium batteries and indicator showing low battery


Are you sure you bought lithium cells? In your camera you should use Ni-MH batteries. The SNB-2512 could be very expensive, but normal Ni-MH from any brand should work fine.

Depending of what you use, always be sure all batteries are the same, charged and suited for your camera. Most of the time even new Ni-CD rechargeable batteries won't work, because the voltage is low, according to NiMH or alkaline batteries.
Always charge NiMH batteries before using them for the first time, or if they have not been used for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Always charge sets of batteries (2 or 4) together.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera.

What power of rechargeable battery need in samsung digital camera model no.-S 730


The S730 uses standard AA batteries. Rechargeables tend to be about 1.2V, disposable alkalines and lithiums generally are about 1.5V. Either type will work fine in the S730.

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.

A590is camera always indicate low batteries, even with new ones.


Which EXACT make and model of batteries are you using?

There are batteries which will fit, and there are those which actually work. If you're using cheap zinc carbon batteries, market/boot sale fakes, or generic pound store/dollar store batteries then you'll have this problem.

Your camera must use two AA size batteries, either alkaline cells (e.g. Duracell) or NiMH rechargeables. Fully charged NiMH cells will far last longer in your camera than non-rechargeable alkaline cells; according to Canon it's approximately 220 shots for alkalines and 500 for NiMH.

If you're using the correct batteries then the next thing to do is to check that the battery contacts in the camera are clean, bright and grease free, and that the same is true of the batteries. If you're using NiMH's then bear in mind that like all rechargeables the performance drops over time and eventually they need replacing, but they're widely available and not expensive.

Wont turn on


Are you sure that your batteries were fully charged? I have the same issue when using shop bought aa batteries - or they don't last very long at all.

That 3 beeps and turning off is what should happen along with a "battery low" error message on the screen from experience.

When I bought the recommended charger and two batteries from Amazon - they lasted a lot longer. Search the website for the charger battery code suggested in the instructions.
