Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Dollar store batteries are even worse. Some may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. The best batteries to use with your camera would be rechargeable NiMH batteries. Walmart sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Now if your camera is stuck half open/half closed due to the batteries dieing during startup, try to reset it by removing the memory card, and then starting the camera with GOOD batteries. If the camera starts (in error mode due to the missing card), shut off the camera, reinsert the memory card, then restart the camera.

Trying to replace horn on 2002 elantra,can't find horn

Why do you have to find an OEM horn? There are tons of horns that work just as well if not better. I bought my wife a used Kia Sorento a few years back and in two weeks the horn went out I went to the parts store got two new horns a high and a low tone horn cut off the original horn plugs and put crimp on connectors and these horns are way better sounding and a lot louder than the original one. Simple job.. You'll love the results and price about 20 dollars. Dealership order I couldn't even begin to think what they would charge and I could tell you I wouldn't pay it. You can find them but they will be on order.
Good luck.

No power with new batteries

Make sure you have strong enough batteries. I bought dollar store batteries and they won.t work on digital cameras. Try the regular, name brand ones. Good luck.

I bought my laptop 6 months ago now for some reason it will not hold a charge i went and spent $189 dollars on a new power plug thinking it my adapter plug but it not holding a charge either what'

Don't you have a one year warranty? My new Lenovo does and pretty sure Asus has the same warranty coverage. Another question did you use a volt meter (about $10) power adapter or did you just assume it was the problem? In this case it is obvious that your battery has failed, it happens. The battery is covered under warranty I'm sure.

Hi. Can someone tell me what would cause the indicator lights for both my brakes and battery to come on. My son is in the middle of driving from Florida to NJ tonight and I don't know if this is a problem...

It is probably a bad alternator. The alternator in my 2001 outback 3.0 went out completely last year and when I bought a replacement remanufactured one both of these lights would come on periodically. I went back to Pep Boys several times until they finally exchanged it with a new one and the problem went away. I never broke down or had the car not start while this was happening though. I would recommend paying the $400+ dollars for the subaru original alternator over the $125 Remanufactured though. It could save you much more in the long run as I think the bad alternator has had other ill effects on my car's electrical system.

Gas gauge stuck under tab

I had the same problem. I carefully removed the dash panel around the dash board (it just snaps out), undid the dash board mounting screws, took out the dash board assembly, disconnected it, removed the plastic lens, and gently turned back the needle. To make sure it didn't happen again I drilled a tiny hole opposite the little post already there (next to the full side) and screwed a tiny screw into it. I then put it all back together and it has worked ever since. While I had it a part I also put a tiny screw on the temperature gauge side so it wouldn't have the same problem. Good luck.

I have the exact same problem. When I went to a chevy dealer today,they told me when they tested it that who ever replaced the battery busted the solder on the door lock and unlock buttons. So now I am looking for a new one.They are 50 dollars cheaper on the web I hear.

Nokia E65 dead

Solved my own problem with a simple solution - I brought it back to the shop I bought it in 6 months ago. The manager recognised the situation and immediately replaced it with a new E65 - said it happens now and then.
