I had the same problem with my camera. It happened less than 2 months after purchasing the camera. I was lucky that it was still under warranty, so I took it back to Sony. They ended up replacing the Circuit Board, but now the anti blur motor has gone and all my pictures have gone shaky, warranty period over. 2 major problems in little over than a year. Hopefully this is last problem I will have with this camera.

I looked though the message board for people with the same camera. Seems there is a consistent problem with the model of cameral that I have.
The response was overwhelming enough to help me make the decision to dispose of the camera.

After having my Canon PowerShot A1100 IS for a year, the batteries would die after only a few pictures. I was using regular AA batteries in it and not NIMH batteries.

Crazy thing about "regular" AA's I ran into the same thing and just shook ,my head but the regular batteries just don't last in the cameras at all switch to a set of rechargeable and you'll get a lot more pictures per charge. On my little camera I went from getting about 30 pictures to a set of AA's to over 300 with the rechargeable type. I don't know what country you are in but Sony has a set that when you buy them they are already charged AND once used and charged again will hold up to 80% of their power for a year just sitting, basically unheard of for a rechargeable battery

FUji FinePix s1000fd, camera will not power on with new batteries, when it powers on it goes off in a few seconds or minutes indicating battery low, i have used fully charged batteries, ordinary batteries...

I have same problem as edmoze mentions above - batteries went dead. I first tried to use regular Duracell AA and it would still not come on. Went to internet & it recommended getting the Duracell rechargeable NiMh which I did. Got the charger & last nite they charged overnight. Today the camera did come on & I was able to download what I had taken. But what concerns me is that the low battery light is still flashing after a night of charging. What's up? Should I expect this kind of battery problem to continue? Seriously considering getting a Nikon Coolpix.

First, I am a 1st class amateur, so jargon is ?Greek? to me. However, I am studying the manual dilligently. My question concerns the batteries. I am using Panasonic Heavy Duty AA?s. I am always very...

It's essential that you state the exact make and model of your camera.

But in general many are incompatible with regular AA batteries (even heavy duty ones)and instead require that you use NiMh or even Li-ion rechargeablesinstead. The voltage, internal resistance and discharge characteristicsof these are significantly different to regular disposable AA batteriesand so the camera will report "battery empty" prematurely.

Check your manual again and if I've answered your query please return the favour by rating my answer. If not then please add a comment to my posting adding the required info for a definitive answer.

(Sorry for the repeat, FixYa ignored my instruction to post the above as an answer rather than a clarification request).

Camera lens does not retract & view finder is just blue, will not go to other screens

The lens maybe out of track. Perhaps you have bumped the camera or dropped it. Look if the lens are a bit tilted, if so, try straighten the lens with your fingers, very gently. Hope it works.

Creative Zen Vision M - Dead Machine

unfortunately,the best solution is to send it back to creative for them to check it out. this sometimes happens when the player has been unused for too long and battery "under charges", which there is a solution.but seeing as u used it under normal conditions,that cant be the problem

In the cameras menu try finding the reset feature. once it is reset test it out also check to see if the cameras flsh is working if it is and then the batteries are dead then it has a bad flash compasitor because it has to charge up and release the charge to the flash but if the compasitor nevr fully charges it keeps tring to charge it and the batteries drain fast. It can be repaired. Hope this helps.

Screen works in playback mode but turns off in camera mode as if batteries are going dead.

For some reason, Fuji does not emphasize that if your batteries get low, this is what happens. You just need recharged batteries or new batteries. Be careful with rechargables--before recharging them when this happens, you first have to drain them using the discharge mode of your camera. Then they will take a complete charge. (Good for some 300 charges or so, I believe.) But if you don't discharge them first, they will take less and less of a charge, and last shorter and shorter. If you use regular batteries, they might not last for 50 pics before running out of juice.

If you are using re-chargeable ni-MH batteries discharge fully using the camera facility and then fully charge them. Repeat and then hopefully the problem will be resolved.
