    The batteries in the camera just seem to die if you leave them inside for a few hours. Even if the camera is turned off.

    This camera just sucks up battery power. Even rechargeables. I am going to try digital camera CR-V3 battery before I junk this P.O.S.

Fully charged battery reads as a dead battery in camera.


hi,
it could be a software problem. if the camera doesn't get the battery's information this will occur the center terminal of the battery must be clean, similarly the contact inside the camera.
if it works for a little while, try to reset to default manner.

I bought it last year, but now it seems there is a problem with charging the battery. It only charges about 22 seconds then it stops, I have to keep eyes on the camera when it is charging, when the green...


It sounds like the battery is damaged and needs to be replaced. If it charges far too fast and discharges far too fast, a few of the cells within the battery may be dead.

You can get something like this from Amazon:

Nothing is working! Screen is black, zoom is extended- dead


Sounds like the battery is faulty and drains somewhere fast. Take the camera back to the dealer nad demand it to be replaced by warranty.

My camera eats batteries....no matter what kind I use


Sir,

Please follow these steps....

) You can lower the setting of your digital camera so that the quality of photo is reduced from the typical "standard quality" which comes set on the camera. What you will need to do is go into the options and reduce the quality to "economy" so that the battery expands less energy to take the picture, which will lead to longer batter life.

2) Make sure that you have calibrated your battery before you bring the camera along on your adventure. You can do this by charging your battery fully and then turning on the camera so that it dies. Once this happens you can charge it again and you will find that it will now last a lot longer than it formally did. I have found this to be very useful with all of my digital cameras.

3) In order to get the most out of your battery you should switch the battery in your camera from standard disposable batteries to rechargeable batteries. This is because of the fact that they last 2x as long as expand less to actually take the photo according to the Energizer rechargeable box.

4) You can go into the settings and turn off the flash if you see one when you are taking a picture. This will reduce the amount of energy going out of the camera which means that your battery will not die as fast as it normally would. You will need to select settings and then choose "no" next to the word flash.

5) You can also make your battery last longer by adjusting the settings so that you are not recording audio notes with your pictures. This will drain your battery fast so you should go into your options menu and select audio off. According to my Sanyo instruction booklet this will make your battery last up to an hour longer.

Thanks
Good Luck

I have just replaced the battery and tried to shoot a picture and the battery went dead!


pjk975

camera circuit has a problem. if the camera had liquid damage it's not repairable.
if impact damage it may be repairable if not too damaged. about the only thing you can do is check the battery compartment and clean if necessary.

Low battery warning


It's something with the camera. I have the same camera and the same problem. I bought 2 brand new batteries, charged them, and the very first thing the camera did when I installed the new batteries was tell me that they were dead!! Grrr....

As a workaround, when it tells you the battery is dead, just open the battery door, close it, and try again. Repeat if necessary. With my camera, doing this lets me use the same battery for days and days. The battery is NOT dead - it's just a faulty warning message.
