Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S60 Digital Camera

Dsc60 battery drains quickly

The problem I'm having is the batteries lose power very quickly. The batteries get replaced frequently and die within a short period of time, regardless of the number of pictures taken. Recently, the best case was about 150 pictures taken in a four hour period. The worst case was only one picture taken in a four hour period before new the batteries died.

Hello sir

these are the possiblities of the problem happening you are facing.

>>if the camera is facing this problem from the time you got it means then the product is defective one

>> if not then there must have been some problem with the power circuit

>> also if you are using low quality batteries they get drained out very soon.

>> so please go for very good alkaline batteries with high current rating .. a 2100mA will do good.

    and for detecting the problem do some sorting out checks.

    just check how many photos the camera is giving with flash.

    then use the same quality battery in some other digital; camera and take the photos in same mode.

    you can sort out if the battery is bad or the camera is bad

    after that you have cleared half way

    you can solve it from here easily

    thank you sir

    good luck

First of all, you need to use alkaline batteries with you camera, if you use mercury ones they wont last long.

    Ensure that you are using alkaline battery (eg. Duracell). if you are and you still get the problem then there is a short inside the camera that i s causing the battery to drain faster than normal.

Why are the batteries dying so quickly in my Kodak 12MP?


It depends, if you are using regular Alkaline batteries, those are known to go dead really fast. Better if you try some rechargeable batteries with a rating of at least 2100mAh, anything smaller than that will drain just as quick as Alkalines.

My Fuji Finepix S5100 camera keeps losing its settings and date and time when the batteries die. Is there a small "watch" type battery that can be replaced so it can keep its memory?


There is no "watch" battery in the camera. Always keep fresh batteries on hand and switch them out quickly. That usually solves the problem.

My Kodak Easyshare Z1485IS camera has a faulty internal battery, used to retain the date and time, how can I replace this battery Please?


I have this camera, except it is Pink.

---
I looked up the internal battery but I don't think it has it. I think that if your regular batteries get exhausted, it will lose memory.

I use Li Ion Batteries, as recommended by Kodak.

If your batteries are losing charge too fast, switch to the Li Ion type, and also keep a spare so that you can keep the memory by switching batteries quickly, within a few minutes, I believe.

Good luck on this.

My camera seems to lose battery power very quickly even after i have put in new batteries. Is there an internal battery that needs to be replaced?


Hello

Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem


What type of batteries are you using, the Lithium ones will last longer and recommended for the unit.
If they are still draining then the unit has a faulty conection somewhere and will need to be sent back to be serviced - common cause for this is been dropped

Dsc60 batterries run out quiclky


Test a different battery (one you know is good) on the camera and see if you still have the problem. If with you still have the problem then probably it is a short. Check first in battery contacts, if you can see a short there than it is an easy fix, otherwise you need to open the camera and test contact inside.

What is the difference between the available AA battery chemistries?


AA batteries are available in four basic varieties: Alkaline Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) Nickel-Cadmium (NiCad) Photo Lithium (Li-FeS2) Alkaline and photo lithium are non-rechargeable, while NiMH and NiCad are rechargeable. Each has advantages and disadvantages. Non-Rechargeable vs. Rechargeable: Rechargeable batteries are desirable from an environmental standpoint because they are reusable. Self-discharge refers to the fact that batteries lose energy when unused and even when not in a camera or other device. Rechargeable batteries tend to have relatively high self-discharge rates, approximately 1-2% per day for nickel-based batteries. Non-rechargeable batteries generally have very long shelf lives and extremely slow self-discharge rates. This makes non-rechargeable batteries a better choice for infrequent usage. Non-rechargeable batteries are available fully charged in stores all over the world, which makes them a convenient choice for travelers or customers who have dead rechargeable batteries and no time to recharge. Photo Lithium Batteries (Li-FeS2) (non-rechargeable): Photo lithium batteries will yield the longest battery life of any AA battery, surpassing NiMH by 50-100% and surpassing alkaline by 100-500%, depending on the load. While they are more expensive than alkaline batteries, their additional energy capacity makes the cost the same or less per shot than alkaline batteries. Nickel-Metal Hydride Batteries (NiMH) (rechargeable): NiMH batteries are the lowest cost overall solution for users that take a lot of pictures (more than the equivalent of a roll of film per month) or use a lot of high-power features. The largest disadvantage to NiMH batteries is their fast self-discharge rate of 1-2% per day whether the batteries are in a camera or not. NOTE: NiMH batteries need to be completely charged and discharged a few times when new to achieve their full capacity. Rechargeable batteries will eventually fail. If you have been getting acceptable battery life and then see a decrease in life, either quickly or slowly over time, a worn-out battery may be the cause. Storing or charging the batteries in high temperature conditions will accelerate this potential failure. Alkaline Batteries (non-rechargeable): Although the cheapest and easiest to find, alkaline batteries yield the worst performance of all the chemistries in a digital camera. They lose capacity at high power drains and at low temperatures. Skiers and other winter outdoor enthusiasts may find them unsatisfactory. Alkaline batteries are frequently available in two types: High drain (ultra, titanium, maximum etc.) Regular The high drain versions are a premium product designed to operate better under heavy loads than the standard product. However, there is a trend of major brands to increase the performance of their standard battery to b
