My camera worked fine up til recently...it does some loud beeping sounds. I just put newly charged rechargeable batteries in it and now it at least powers on but does this terrible noise in the left part if the screen is facing me and it beeps more then shuts off.

Re: beeping, bad noises, then turns itself off
If you have a retractable lens then that could be causing the problem. The beeps is letting you know that it's wrong and it shut off as a safe guard. So the noise you are hearing is the motor and gears for the lens.

does it come from inside the cabin might be a fault with the seats or seat belts as when you get in and dont put your seat belt on it makes a beeping noise untill the seat belt gets put on is it this noise could be a faulty seat sensor wouldent of thought it was the turbo hissing or screeming yes but not a buzzing noise but then i could be wrong hope this helps ivan
Sounds like the ac adapter could be putting out the wrong voltage.The battery itself most likely wouldn't cause your problem but the voltage problem may not have a bearing if the battery isn't pulling voltage trying to charge.Also the charging board may be bad or going bad causing a hardware conflict when the battery is inserted as well.
first off,never use rechargable batteries in this camera or most digital cameras for that matter.2 use only lithium batteries,enegizer preffered.,also yes you can view all your pictures when connecting the usb,meke sure you turn the power on,and highlight the word computer,push ok.you should be fine.good luck .i hope i helped
This can be caused by several different situations.
Most commonly the camera has experienced some kind of impact which knocks an element out of alignment, preventing the lens from rotating normally. Symptoms of this include:
*you may hear no mechanical sound at all when the camera is turned on
*you may see visibly mis-aligned components of the lens
*you may hear a loud "snap snap" sound as the camera tries to move the lens when the camera is powered on
The second most common cause is a particle of sand getting stuck in the focus motor drive gears. This prevents the focus element from moving normally and causes the camera to shut off to prevent damage to the lens assembly. Symptoms of this include:
*A loud "buzzing" sound when the camera is turned on, followed by the beeping and shutdown.
Finally the third most common cause of this problem is a broken tooth on the zoom motor drive gears. Symptoms of this include:
*the sound of the running motor with a regular "click click click" sound for several seconds. This will not be a "snap snap" sound, that is a different problem.
*the lens will move in and out easily by hand as if free from any resistance.
All of these problems require disassembly to repair. The charge is around $125 labor at my shop.
The battery packs in these units dont have a very long "shelf life" meaning when you charge the battery you need to use it within a few days or it will loose charge. Have you tried a fresh charged battery? They are very power hungry devices and the more advanced they get the more power they need. How old is this unit? how many charges have you put on the pack? it may be time for a second pack. An emergency backup pack good power is key nowdays.
