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.

SOURCE: batteries die within a few minutes

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.

SOURCE: Why does the battery die after only two minutes?

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.

My vivitar x345 wont hold charge


If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and graduallythe charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The batteryshows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops offto zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptablecharge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Our Super Gaucho 24volts is 2-years-old and barely used. Now the battery is not lasting to long. Is this normal? I mean, with a more frequent charging/use will its performance be improved? Thx ahead &...


Unfortunately the batteries just lose their holding power after awhile, and if you don't keep them charged every few months (like during winter if your child isn't riding, you still need to charge / refresh the battery every 2 months or so, if it isn't charged for a few months, it'll lose some of it's holding power), that's a very common problem. Our 24V Perego batteries for our Gaucho only seem to last like 30 minutes of constant riding (my son rides non stop sometimes for 30+ minutes). If you check out the site modifiedpowerwheels.com , people convert them to use non Perego batteries that run for much longer!

When I turn the knob on the camera to be able to take another picture, the number still stays at zero. What's wrong with my camera?


There are a couple of possibilities that I can think of:

First, film must be loaded into the camera for the picture counter to increment.

Second, if you've loaded film, but the counter still does not change, it is possible the film is not advancing (the film release button/knob/lever that you use to rewind the film may be activated) or the film has slipped off the sprockets on the take-up spool.

If you can stand to lose the photos you may have already taken, just open the back of the camera and make sure the film is advancing when you take a photo.

If you can't possibly lose the photos, rewind the film and take the film to be developed. Try to find a local developer that only charges for the photos that "came out"... This can save a lot of money if only a few frames develop properly (or if none come out!)

Our swiss railway wall clock runs very slow. changed batteries twice in 2 week period but it loses an hour or more per day. help! a lot of money for a clock that only worked a couple of months.


If it is within the warranty period (usually a year), then you should return it to your supplier, with an explanation of the problem.

They should replace it free of charge.

My canon EOS 450D battery loses power within 5mins


If it's an original battery, call Canon, if you've only charged it once, I expect the camera is still under warranty. I've had lots of dealings with Canon Photography, the usually give extremely good customer service.

If it's a cheap one you bought of ebay - that's why!

The main batter will not hold its charge when left in the camera.


After 12 months use camera batteries will not hold a true charge, but they can still be used for clocks, or remotes. Buy new ones. We all have the same problem.

Well it sounds like a combo of both. Definitly get the battery replaced again. The phone itself probably needs new software. take it your service provider's corp store to get the software updated.

Can't take photo's


There should be 2 settings, 1 for internal memory, 1 for external (card) memory. Internal memory is always low, especially if camera is set to high quality photos so only a few can be taken. check your settings on picture quality.
