Question about Casio EXILIM Card EX-S770 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Even though the battery fully charges the camera, and it works.--The camera's battery dies out really fast.

It hasn't even been a year since my purchase of Exilim Casio camera. Seriously. I'd return it to Cosco right now; but my mom lost the receit to it. =[ So i can't.

My camera's battery is broken..?
I don't know whats wrong.

I charge it, and its fully charged.

It works fine and i leave it along for like 30minutes--or come to it the next day and its DEAD.

Battery?--its like 0bars out of 3.

Is there a way to fix this?

I'm never buying from casio ever again. Samsung ftw.

Call tech support and tell them that you are having trouble with your battery and they will probably replace it for you free of charge.

Battery exhausted won't charge


even new batteries can die. I only can advice you to try to start a charge cycle a few times in a row, but if the charger does not indicate it is charging, I'm afraid you really have to buy a new battery.
I have a Nikon battery that is almost 3 years off age and in the camera it says capacity 100% NEW. But it is used on a regular base and charged regular.

Try charging it for an hour even if it is indicating that it is already full in 10 minutes. If the battery still gets drained after a few shots, then you should change your charger.

My dsc t700 does not turn on. Is there a solution for this? Battery is fully charged at 4.2 volts dc.


The voltage across a battery isn't really the thing to look for. It's the amperage available from the battery which counts. An almost flat battery can still read it's correct votage but as soon as a load is put on the battery, as when you turn on your camera, the voltage could well drop to almost nothing. Your charger could say that your battery is charged and ready to go but due to old age and many charge cycles or even a cell dying could cause insufficient amperage to turn the camera on.
What I recommned is borrowing a battery pack from a friend if you know someone with the same model camera and trying it or even buy a new battery from Ebay (they are cheap enough), charge it for the recommended 15 hours for the first charge and try it. If the camera operates correctly your problem is solved and believe me a large percentage of camera problems are caused by dud batteries.

If this approach doesn't work then a trip to the repair shop may be in order.

Kodak Easy Share z712 IS not detecting charged battery


I have the exact same camera almost a year too. It is a total "swinka" on batteries. About 10-15 shots on super ni-cads, and quits without warning.

A pair of Energizer 7X gave me near 500 shots. Much cheaper but still ...

So 4 months ago I bought a charger and 2 rechargeables. Charge one while using the other one.
I may get 70-90 shots per charge on these lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, without flash.

Testing the batteries without a load doesn't really tell you anything.
What's the reading? Should be well over 4 volts when fully charged. Mine show 4.2V

i suggest replacing a fresh battery will most likely solve your prob, overtime rechargeable battery can drain easily, try changing with a new battery and see if it does work well, there might be insufficient current, thats why it tends to drop of voltage easily upon using, 
there is a specified lifetime for rechargeable battery, depends on your usage and charging method, theymaybe fully charged but sometimes wont give you enough power to drive

Battery problem!


The camera has a design flaw.
Maybe HP can fix it with a firmware update but it's not likely.

I used an precision DC power supply to perform some electronics tests to find out what is going on with this model.

The issue is that AA NiMH batteries are rated at 1.2V DC each, and 2 AA"s in series add up to 2.4V.
Meanwhile the camera wants 2.7 volts DC or higher otherwise it gets the low battery error.

That is the flaw and we can't change that. It should continue to run at much lower voltage levels like other camera's and be able to use the full charge of the battery but it won't. So it runs the battery down from 100% down to about 98% and then it complains and stops.

Note that NiMH' batteries when fully charged are a bit above their rated value.. They actually have about 1.35V each so 2.7V total in this case. That's enough to start the camera but it doesn't last because in record mode the camera draws 450mA of current from the batteries (which is unusually high) and it quickly pulls the battery below the 2.7V level and the error comes up even though the batteries are still almost fully charged.

I measured 960mA of current draw when it's charging the flash which is a huge amount.
So this is just a really inefficient camera compounded by a low battery cutout circuit design flaw that is too sensitive.

We can't fix the design flaw but you could use higher voltage batteries. Granted,, this is not a great solution since you can't use NiMH rechargeables then but at least it gives you some options

Alkaline are rated at 1.5V each and even though they don't normally last very well compared to NiMH (due to higher internal resistance) they would last a while in this case. Perhaps 50-100 photo's or less if using the flash.

A better but more expensive solution is to use Lithium AA's. They have at least 1.6 Volts each and are very strong.
They are not rechargeable but you should get a lot of shots with a set of those, then look for a better camera.

Unfortunately this camera is far below average is pretty much every other category as well, such as high noise levels, low image sharpness, lack of any manual controls or dedicated control buttons for macro, focus, ISO, alternate screen modes to display useful info such as shutter speed or any other features that most camera's have by default. It has a 4 way rocker switch on the back but they didn't connect any functions to it.

It's also one of the slowest camera's made. Any Nikon or Canon would be a huge upgrade in features, quality, battery life, and photo quality. I have quite a few camera's and 20 years experience and can tell good features and those that are marginal. So lets just say that even though I only paid $39 (New) for this HP as a cheap spare it's going back to the store because it's just too lousy at everything. I can handle the 5Meg resolution which isn't a lot. I even have a 2Meg Nikon and a 4Meg Canon G3 from years ago that still take excellent, clear photo's. But this 5Meg HP can't even keep up with a 5 year old, 2 Meg camera.

Canon 400d will not switch on


it might be a problem with the battery connectors.
They might not touch the battery well.
another reason, it might be the battery is dead or the power button is not working.

Camera Draining Battery


Lachuaeyes,
I have a different model of Olympus and I read that you did not always have this problem and you already have replaced the battery so an old battery is not likely the issue. I suspect you might have something that is draining that was not set in the past. I keep my batteries longer by not using flash most of the time. Is there someone new using the camera that perhaps leaves it on longer than you do after finishing, perhaps uses flash longer? Is there a setting for auto shutdown that has been changed to not turn off as fast as it used to? If none of these I wonder if the flash is requiring more energy than in the past.
Could you tell me if the battery is draining even if you don't use it or is it only if you are using it does it drain faster.

Another possibility is that the charger is not charging so well as it used to but I suspect you leave it in long enough and more.

If you have the ability to check the output voltage of the charger with a multimeter you would be sure it is really putting out enough volts to charge fully.

Please let me know if you have further questions.
