Question about Casio QV-R40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery Life Battery Indicator shows Orange after taking 3-Videos or several images. Battery Indicator= Green good, Orange half battery life, Red nearly gone. I have replaced the Casio original batteries (2100mAh) with 2700mAh. Still the same battery life, Orange indicator after few Videos or several images. I have since purchased 2100mAh to suit the Casio charger and still the same problem. I used to get approx 150 shots. Is the camera discharging the batteries? Any Ideas?

Re: Battery Life

Your SD memory expansion card may be damaged.
Try the same procedure without the expansion SD card.
Use the Casio QV-R40 10meg memory with same camera settings.

Battery charger issue

funny thing with batteries is that they can get a memory = sounds stupid yes = if a battery is recharged when it has half charge and then fully charged it remembers the point , one it gains memory it wont charge past the last point = or the battery life is over = or the charger is faulty.

My Kodak ZD710 Will only let me take about 11 pics and the batteries go dead, I have used the CRV3 battery pack

Welcome to FixYa.

Kodak lithium digital camera battery CRV3 (non-rechargable) approximately can take pictures up to 500 pictures. However, actual life may vary based on the usage.

How to extend your battery life?

1. Use power saving features (using a power saving modes). Limit activites such as reviewing pictures/videos on the LCD.
2. Dirt on the battery contacts can affect battery life. Wipe the contacts with clean,dry cloth before loading the battery in the camera.
3. Battery performance is reduced at temperatures below 41 F(5 degree celcius). When using your camera in cold weather, keep spare batteries warm. Do not discard cold batteries; when they return to room temperature, they may be usable.

Please let me know if you have any questions and if this solution was helpful.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Take 6 pics and needs new batteries, also tried different type batteries!

Not all digital cameras are created equal it would be nice to know what camera/model and what batteries you are using. If this is a point and shoot type you won't get very much life out of a set of regular alkaline batteries, you should switch to rechargeable type and the battery life will extend for several hundred shots. Also if you leave the LCD screen on continually the battery draw will be severe and last only a few minutes. Meaning you are previewing the images you have already take to long and draining the batteries.

Camera wont charge. green light comes on for a second then a red light flashes and then goes out

This normally indicates a battery problem. Remove the battery and wipe the contacts (battery and camera) firmly with a dry cloth to remove any corrosion that may have built up on them. Heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper. After cleaning, remove any debris that may have fallen into the battery compartment, then insert the battery and connect the camera to the charger. If the green light stays on, the problem is gone and you can charge the battery for several hours and then use the camera. If the red light comes on, it's likely time to replace the battery - especially if it's more than a year old.

HINT: Always remove the battery if you don't plan to use the camera for a week or more. This will prevent corrosion buildup and extend both battery life and camera life.

Is there a battery life indicator in canon sd700is


I had a look at a review of the camera and also could not find the battery life indicator.
Even with all the icons present on the screen there is no battery icon.
It thus looks if the SD700 lacks a battery indicator.

Kind regards!!

Battery / camera does not turn on

It may or may not be a battery problem. A completely dead battery will not turn the green, red and blue lights on at all, like my bloated and dead original battery. This camera uses a custom lithium-polymer battery that built just for this camera. I don't think you can order one from Che-ez. But if you are savvy enough, you can re-build the battery by taking the old battery pack and the protection circuit board out with a soldering iron, keeping the plastic frame and replace the pack with a similar one that you can buy on ebay for less than US$10 by soldering it back on to the contacts on the frame. Just search "Lithium Polymer 380mAh" on ebay and that is the one that gave mine a second life. WARNING: Do it at your own risk, don't hold me liable if you lose a finger or more from mishandling the potentially explosive Li-ion battery pack. Good luck!

Panasonic lumixDMC-FX7 camera

Could be either. If on switch on again the indicator is full and you get more work done then its a camera fault. If when you switch on again the battery remains flat then this could be the camera fault too the flash capacitor showing signs of distress. On the other hansd the battery could be nearing the end it useful life. How much is a new battery?

Battery getting exhanusted

Sounds like you need to call Canon. I use Energizer e2 batteries and take 700 pictures and several videos during a show I attend and still have battery life. Even with normal batteries you should be able to take several hundred pictures. Are you still under warranty?
