    Hi I have the exact same problem. I got the camera for christmas & recently went to London and tried to use it properly for the first time so I was not best pleased when it flashed up saying low battery. I had a pack of 8 duracell in my bag but it still kept flashing up low battery then turning off. My boyfriend got me the camera and has deleted the receipt from his emails so any help would be really appreciated!

Some cameras have a bettery setting in the menu. You need to make sure this setting is set to the type of batteries you are using. Usually when you use akaline batteries and even if you put in fresh batteries but still get the low battery indication then your camera is set to rechargable (Ni-Mh). Ni-Mh has more power to it then alkaline so this is why you get the low indication.

Suspect the charger is shot on a seldom used like new Companion II. The batteries are at 3 volts but the charger red light wont illuminate when plugged in. Green light comes on, but not the red. I did see...


MStrong The charger will not charge batteries that are reading that low Replace the batteries and try the charger again. Remember to always charge before use and never charge longer than 12-16 hours. Get into the habit of charging overnite on scooters used everyday and once a week on seldomly used scooters always sore the scooter fully charged and if storing for a longer time remove the batteries and store fully charged. ope this helps you

My 03 x type jag wont even try to turn over? Dash lights are fine but windows, mirrors and starter dead! All the dash lights and monitor and radio work but wont even tryto start? Transmittion wont come out...


Sounds like all of the high drain devices are disabled due to a weak battery. You are still getting dash lights and radio because they are very low drain devices. Try charging the battery to test for now. It could be a failing battery, or your alternator and or voltage regulator could be going out and not charging the system. But first, try to charge the battery, and see if you can start it, if you can, let it run for at least 10 minutes. If your alternator/VR is going out or is already out, you should have a guage, or idiot light telling you that you have low voltage. If its a light, you should see a red battery lit up on the dash, if its a guage, it should be directly in the middle +/- a little. If you are able to run the vehicle for a while with no light coming on, or guage showing low voltage, its safe to say you drained the battery, or it is failing. If its a few years old or more, i'd go ahead and replace it. Hope this helps :)

After charging the Battery the power button flash blinks


i think the red light means low power for battery... maybe just maybe your battery didnt really charge.. im not saying that its the charger, but try to buy a new rechargeable batteries, use it then charge it and compare it with the other one... i think thats the problem with batteries if we stop using it for a long time... hope ull be able to resolve it

Even though the lights work the battery should be load tested to see if it can handle a heavy amp. draw like the starter.If you have a battery charger, but it on the battery and leave it for a few hours.Also check the battery connections to be sure they are clean. If it starts check to make sure the alternators is chargeing the battery.

Mine did the same thing for forever and was brand spankin new... When the batteries go dead once, I guess it glitches... You can put brand new ones in and it will Still say low battery or act like it anyway. Give it some time. Then try to turn it on again and it will be fine. Also it will say you have a low battery if you are taking too many pics at a time... like snap snap snap and it will shut down... turn it back on in twenty minutes and its fine... full battery. If you can't deal with this... Get a battery charger and rechargable batteries. I am using them now with none of these problems

Camera wont switch on


Try to use another 2 batteries. The problem could be with the batteries or the charger. By the way, did you checked batteries voltage or tried to use them in another appliance ?
