The plastic cover of the batteries got somewhat deformed causing lack of connection. When pressed down the power went on. I shall try to replace (if possible) the plastic cover. In the meantime I have fastened the cover down with plastic tape.

Keep NiMh batteries fully charged?


NiMh batteries lose charge quickly after a 15 minute charge. Keep the batteries in the charger so that trickle charge keeps the float voltage up to maintain fully charged state until you have to use the batteries.

WHAT IT MEANS BY NO POWER REMAINS BY LX5


I can't find this message in the manual. Power failures are the most common errors with portable gear. You have to rely on the quality of the batteries. Each and every battery can become faulty, with no obvious reason you can think off. Using lots of rechargeable batteries myself, I think I know where I'm talking off.Please to be sure, take another set of batteries, charge them and put them in the camera. Try to avoid alkaline batteries, because they only are capable of doing half the job of an rechargeable NiMH, pro charge. Also never use NiCD rechargeable batteries, because they won't have the correct voltage. (perhaps one or two shots, but the voltage drops very quick to 1,2 volt, its working voltage).
You also can check the camera and the batteries, if they don't have dirty or oxidised contacts. Only clean contacts with a dry cloth. Or when really dirty, with just a little contact oil on a cloth to wipe the contacts. Be sure you dry the contacts after the cleaning. Never use sharp tools to clean electronic contacts.

The manual says you can use alkaline batteries,
a SNB-2512B KIT, or 2xAA Ni-MH Batteries.
If you did use NiCD batteries, it could be they would not work, because they have another output voltage (lower).
Try a set of alkaline batteries or fresh Ni-MH batteries, before you ask Samsung. If new batteries give the same result. contact your dealer or Samsung.

When i press power on/off button of my D3000 nikon camera, there's nothing power exist. What is the solution for this problem?


Before you do anything, verify that your battery is fully charged. Be aware that rechargeable batteries do fail after a time and your battery charger could also fail. Buy a second battery if you do not already have one and try that. Also, replace your battery charger. Or, if you have a voltmeter, simply measure the battery voltage to eliminate both the battery and charger as a cause.
The other thing I would do, is make sure the battery contacts in the camera and on the battery are clean. If that does not solve your problem, I would contact the nearest Nikon USA repair depot for repair information. You will find there locations in your D3000 manual.

Pentax w30 will not turn on. I think the battery may be shorted the light on the charger now blinks instead of staying lit while charging and turning off when fully charged?


The flashing light indicates either a charger problem or batteries that are beyond charging. If you have a voltmeter you can check the output of the charger and the voltage of the batteries, but chances are that you just need to replace the batteries -- especially if they're more than a year old.

Put in fresh batteries and camera telling me WARNING!! BATTERY EXHAUSTED


Either the fresh batteries are bad (this can happen), or they were inserted improperly, or the camera is defective somewhere. Measure the voltage on the batteries with a multimeter (voltmeter). Alkaline (regular) AA batteries measure about 1.6v to about 1.5v when new. NiMH (rechargeable) measure about 1.24v when fully charged. Be sure to install them with the + terminal and the - treminal going in the right direction. There should be some indication of this in the battery compartment of the camera. Hope this helps.

DMC Tz3 will not power up. Battery is fully charged. sometimes when it does come on it will not read card and will have to reset date and time.


First remove the SD card in case it is defective itself causing the camera to act funny. Next, your symptoms are indicative of a bad, not fully charged, or intermittent battery contact with camera's contacts.

Clean batt contacts using a clean pencil erasure.

If this doesn't work, measure a fully charged battery's voltage on the battery pos(+) and neg(-) terminals. It should be 4VDC. If less than 3.8, I would be suspicious it is not taking a full charge.

New batteries on ebay are cheap, and would not be a loss since you can always use backup batteries if you get another TZ camera. Or, you could just sell your camera to a repairman in an ebay auction, keeping your batteries and accessories, and buying a used working one with accessories cheap.

CANON POWERSHOT A300


If it's a short, not much that you can do other than try to track down the short location with a voltmeter. But I do have doubts that a short is causing this. The A300 is a notoriously power hungry camera. It's the first digital Canon to use two AA batteries. It takes great pictures, but unfortunately Canon didn't spend much time focusing on battery efficiency in getting the new two battery design out the door. As a work-around, try taking pictures by shutting off the display (press the DISP button) and using the optical viewfinder. Also the camera works best with high power rechargeable NiMH batteries rated 2500mah or better. Very inexpensive NiMH batteries are generally weak, and if no rating is shown on the package or battery, should be avoided.
