Question about Polaroid iZone 300 Digital Camera
Got this camera as a gift and liked it at first. After a few months, started losing a full charge within a couple of minutes, and shut down. This happens continually. Can battery be replaced?

SOURCE: camera will not stay charged
Hard to say without more information, however, what first comes to mind is battery age. Rechargeable (assuming this is what you have) have a finite life (anywhere from months to 1+ years). The battery may no longer be holding much of a charge, also, the charger may no longer be functioning properly.

Even if they are so-called "Heavy Duty" they may just be plain old alkaline batteries. Digital cameras can eat those for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Try lithium ion batteries (Duracell PowerPix or Energizer Advanced for example) or quality NiMH rechargables.

this may depend on what batteries are being used or some error of the camera or its settings.
1 when this happens try to open the battery compartment and close it again after a few seconds and see if this resolves the problem.
2 test the batteries in some other device such as a torch or other device and see if they work in that if so it maybe a problem with your camera or its settings.
3 if you are using regargeable batteries check in your camera setting if there is a battery type setting and ensure it is set to the same as the batteries you are using.
it is wise to use NiMh or other rechargeable batteries with a high rating such as 1000 or 1800 mAh normal alcaline batteries may not have the power to operate the camera for long.
note: if the flash is being used this will also run down batteries quicker also if images or video clips are being viewed on the camera this will also cause faster battery usage. also if the camera is being switched on and off after each few shots this may also reduce bettery life through lens extension and retraction, it maybe better to leave the camera on longer than keep switcing it off see if you have a power setting and set the camera to switch off automatically after 3 minutes if not being used then to keep the camera open if shot opertunities are still ripe the just half depress the shutter button to keep the camera live. this may help.
if this does not improve then recommend to replace the batteries as they maybe defective or the camera go to a certifed agent for testing.
