Re: Don't work.

Cameras belonging to the S Series really do have a battery type option that needs to be set up first for proper power connection.

Recommended batteries are just:
- Alkaline (Non-rechargeable)
- Nickel-metal Hydride (Rechargeable)

Just set the proper battery type by:
- Pressing MENU/OK button
- Scroll to the right until you are in SETUP 2
- Keep on scrolling down and look for battery type
- Press the right button to pick up on 2 options
like Alkaline and Ni-MH
- Press MENU/OK for changes to be saved
- Keep pressing MENU/OK to get out of the MENU

Once, it's done, camera needs to be turned off for a few seconds
so that settings made will be refreshed with the camera.

As you turn camera on, you're now ready to take many pictures.
ALKALINE (Non-rechargeable) batteries when set to the correct battery type will really take a maximum of 100 pictures.

It really doesn't matter if you'll be using 2500mAh. So long as those are the recommended batteries, those will work.

I put new batteries into the camera but it continually tells me "low battery". What's wrong??? Do I need a specific brand or type of battery?

Yes, you are correct.

Digital camera need a high drain battery like NIMH or ALKALINE type, and don't a multi purpose ( standard battery).

My favorite battery is Energizer 2500 mAH ( recharged type).

Please check the battery you are using right now and replace it as guided above. If there is no internal problem on your digital camera, this recommend batteries will working just fine.

Try lithium ion or rechargable batteries (maH > 2500). Alkalines (regular duracell/energizer) have trouble powering many digital cameras since they cannot sustain the amount power output necessary.

S85 camera will not turn on just beeps three times

I figured out the fix:
Take the batteries out, put them back in and close the battery cover. Next, turn on the camera and before it can finish the three beep sequence, open up the battery cover(disconnecting the battery power). Close the battery cover (reconnecting the batteries) and switch on the camera. It may take a couple of tries, but it seems to be a "poor man's reset"

get a butter knife or any thin object like that and use it to push out the lens and turning it on at the same time you will hear a clicking noise which is normal once completely out, use your hand with a gentle but firm presure move it form left to right
and then hopefully it should work after that

Camera not working

Usually when the camera beeps 3 times. It means the battery is low. Then it turns right off. What kind of batteries are you using for your camera?

We had the same problem. It would beep three times then shut off.
The lens was stuck in the out position. My son played with it until it loosened up and it works now. It had nothing to do with batteries.
If yours is stuck out. twist and push until it goes back in.
Good luck

It dont turn on

I had the same problem. Try to turn it on, 3 beeps and then it would shut down. Screen would come on for that time. Also, the lens was stuck open. It wouldn't close.

I twisted the lens (gently) and it appeared stuck. A gentle screw motioned seemed to free it. I hit the power button and it come on, but this time no 3 beeps and shut down. I then turned it off and this time the lens retracted and closed.

So, it appears that if the lens gets stuck open, it has a shut down feature that doesn't allow the camera to go further into its operation modes. I believe this stuck open problem occured on our camera when the batteries went low.

Again, a second of gentle twisting seemed to unstick it and with fresh batteries in, it was able to operate and shut down properly.

As far as batteries, I use the rechargeable Ni-Cad 2500 mA. They last a while.

Blessings to you!

A beeping sound???

"IS IT PLUGGED IN?" How many times have we heard THAT anecdote, yet it can be so true. You replaced the batteries - good - but did you do this more than once, just to be sure the "new" batteries were good? Better still, use freshly-charged RECHARGABLE batteries. A battery without enough "juice" CAN cause the symptoms you mention. If these don't work, SOME of the Digimax cameras have a RESET button on the bottom. Consult the manual, or simply look at the camera base. These cameras are an OUTSTANDING value, and tend to be very durable. But, if it's broken, it'll be less expensive to buy a new one. GOOD LUCK!
