Battery power? I have had my camera for about a year and I haven't yet used it. Every time I turn it on it says low battery and shuts off. I change batteries, and now it doesnt turn on at all. Do I need a wall charger or something? Please help!! thank you

    the camera never really worked. it stayed on for about a minute when i first got it. Then, i'd put new batteries in and it'd do the same thing. Now it doesn't turn on at all. Do you think I should just purchase a new battery?

Hi,

Are you using the same type of batteries as the ones you used when the camera actually worked in the past?

My Powershot SX10 IS has worked perfectly for 2 years. Recently I needed to change batteries, and since I did, (4 AA batteries), no matter how many times I put in brand new batteries of all brands, I...


First off, make sure that you're using good quality batteries, and not generic alkaline. Rechargeable NiMH are best. Next possibility is that not all of the batteries are making contact in the case. Make sure that the terminals at the bottom of the battery case haven't been bent low. If any of the batteries sit lower in the case than the others, try bending its bottom terminal up just a little bit so that it sits a little higher in the case, possibly improving its contact.

When i start my camera it turns the light green to red and shuts off immeditaly


Green light indicates good battery strength. Red light indicates that your camera has an insufficient or low battery power level and will be automatically powered off. . To continue using the camera, please change your batteries to new ones.


Please note that:
  1. If you don’t intend to use your camera for an extended period of time, please remove the batteries to avoid battery leakage and corrosion.
  2. Do not mix old and new batteries.
  3. Alkaline batteries are generally recommended.

Camera shutting off indicating low battery


I had the same problem, apparently if you're using a external memory card that can cause this problem...

I didn't know that but I contacted Samsung and got mine repaired.

They put a note in saying the power board was faulty in the camera.


Much, much better now. I can take pictures like I used to be able to!

Batter Life


How can I extend my digital camera’s battery life and save money?

Avoid the three main power drains in a digital camera: power cycling, unnecessary flash, and excessive LCD (liquid-crystal display) use. A camera uses power each time it initializes or shuts down, so avoid cycling the camera on and off between shots; you should only turn the camera off when you finish taking pictures.

Also, because it takes energy to use a flash, turn this component off in daylight or high-light areas. Even if your camera doesn’t fire the flash, it takes energy to keep the flash charged.

In addition, the color LCDs used on digital cameras can demand a lot of power (especially if the camera is left on for a prolonged period), so turn off the LCD and use the optical viewfinder rather than the LCD to frame the snapshot. Plus, make sure you only use the LCD sparingly to review your snapshots.

If you haven’t purchased a camera yet, choose one that uses common (low-cost) alkaline batteries rather than the more expensive lithium cells. Most cameras that operate on AA or AAA batteries also will accept rechargeable batteries, which may cost more initially but can easily pay for themselves in the long run. Of course, always refer to a camera’s manual for specific operating suggestions and precautions.

Kindly regards,
micro

New Batterys and camera indicates batterys low then shuts off.


Did the batteries come with the camera? If not, they might not be a high enough mah rating. Some batteries, even though brand new, may not be strong enough to power a camera.

A BATTERY PROBLEM WITH THE FUJI S500


Old motors and mechanism is eating too much power, thats what you will expect after three or more years using your unit. Digital cameras lasts for about three years working in good condition, after that expect your head to turn using that cam.
