Question about Digital Concepts Digital Camera

Open Question

We cannot get the camera to come on after replacing the batteries. This happens every time we do this. We got the camera for my mother in law last year for Christmas. She has only used it a few times. She is going on a senior trip tomorrow and can't take her camera since it won't come on. What can be done about this.

My mother in law is very deaf in one ear and has poor hearing in the other. How can I tell if her own hearing is at fault or her hearing aid battery needs changing or there is some other fault causing her...


I have a similar issue with my 86 year old mother-in-law and her hearing aids. Depending on how long they are worn/turned ON, determines how long the battery in each one will last. In my mother-in-laws case, she waits to long to change the batteries or doesn't keep the volume turned up high enough. So, in her case, the battery(s) get weak, before she realizes it. The other thing that is most important is when we age our body (ears in this case) physically change and the hearing aid(s) that were originally fitted several years before, don't fit as well as they should. I am also convinced that their hearing continues to deteriorate and they should be tested and fitted with a new hearing appliance, as needed.

The down side to this, is that hearing aids are not inexpensive. So, if Medicare, Medicaid or their own private insurance want cover at least part of the cost, most people don't want to pay for new ones. Or as my mother-in-law says, "Oh, they're working alright." When in fact, they're not. My wife and I can tell by the volume on her TV. When you can hear it from one floor to another, her hearing aids aren't working right.

How do I get my batteries to last longer in my GE X5? It goes through four batteries in matter of mins. I have put 12 batteries in my camera w/in 3 days and I havent even taken but maybe 20 pics in those 3...


My mother-in-law said this exact thing to me last week about her camera. I can't understand why it's running the batteries down so quickly unless the power is being left on constantly. But I can tell you regular batteries don't last long in any high tech devices anymore.

I highly recommend Lithium batteries (I prefer Energizer, but any brand will do). They tend to last at least 6 months in my digital camera. They're more expensive, so I understand most people are hesitant about buying them, but considering the number of regular batteries you'd use up in that time period, you come out better in the long run (plus you don't have to haul around tons of replacements).

If your camera runs the Lithum battery down quickly, too, I might be inclined to say that something about the camera is defective and you should call the manufacturer.

The chair will not do anything.It shows the battery as fully charged and and that is it. It was given to me by my mother in law when she passed away because I am also handicapped but had lostb the owners...


When you connect the charger, if the light goes to red to green within a few minutes and the battery power does not last more than 1-2 hours or less, it may indicate that that the batteries will not take a charge anymore and need to be replaced. This can happen if the power chair is stored without being charged for a while. Batteries retail $75-$150 each depending on the model and brand, you will need two of them.

WE bought a camera 2 years ago. We had a problem with the lens and we sent it back for repair the first year. And ever since then it had gotten worse. Spots on the camera and more. It barely get used and...


first i suggest you go to a law shop for free advise, ask them if consumers law says something about these kind of goods.

here in holland there is a law witch says that you may expect that a camara of $ 300 (assuming dollar) should at least last 5 years at normal operation (read : use)

than write a letter by your lawyer that tells them that they have done a lousy job and give them a reasonable time (lets say two weeks) to reply and come with a sollution , than if they don't let something know , write a letter that you a planning to use your rights and sue them if they don't give you a good wordking camera .. the rest is op to your lawer

Camera resets when powered off


On my mother-in-law's Exilim camera, we resolved the issue by formatting the camera's internal memory storage (take out your memory card and navigate to the format option on the menu). You'll need to then set the date and time again but it then seems to store it. Hoping that helps someone.

Will not turn on


My guess is that your camera has been dropped recently and that the beeping is a result of the lens not extended when powered on. My Mother-in-Law has the same camera exhibiting the same symptoms. I've been able to get it to turn on by slightly pulling on the lens prior to turning it on. One of the plastic gears inside is probably damaged.

Samsung Digimax 430 - Battery Problem


Are you using specialised batteries? Kodak, among other brands, have AA batteries designed for digital camera use - the high intensity usage flattens normal batteries very quickly. They aren't much more expensive, but last a lot longer.
