SOURCE: camera wont power on. I tried 3 sets of batteries

If the camera has recently been dropped it may have lens damage that is preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped, your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries, place them back in the camera, and give them a good charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

SOURCE: I placed new batteries into the camera, however

Digital cameras use batteries p very quickly. Some batteries last longer than others. I buy large multi packs at the big box store near me. When you say two uses, do you mean just two pictures or two uses taking several pictures? You can go to your cameras menu and navigate through it to adjust several of the settings which will save power. You should also be sure that your battery setting is correct while you are there.

Look through your manual to read about the menu settings and battery usage.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Shows error on the batteries


If your camera shows error even after changing the batteris, then it will not be an problem with the battery. Please check the setting of the camera once and switch on the camera. Also if the problem still persists, reinstall the software and try again.

Thanks

I keep getting a battery flashing signal even with new batteries and it takes one pic and shuts off


Check the type batteries you are using. This camera uses either the alkaline batteries (don't use the cheaper brands, their residual power is much less) or the NiMH [Nickel-Metal Hydride] rechargeables. The NiMH batteries give you greater service and increased life in the camera. Nickel Cadmium batteries are unpredictable for use in this camera.
You may also want to check your battery contacts on the batteris themselves and also the contacts inside the camera. To clean the contacts inside the camera use a reliable contact cleaner. I use either NU-TROL or Deoxit. A quick squirt and cotton bud swirls will do the job. Make sure you wipe the terminals of the battery with it as well. Body oils can partially insulate from conduction. If you can't find a good contact cleaner, I found mine at Baynesville Electronics, 410-823-0082.
Hope this helps.

Lens keeps movin in and out (Pentax M20)


Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Why is my camera batteris won't last what type of


You didn't mention whether you're using rechargeable batteries or throw-aways. If rechargeable, I recommend Ni-MH over other battery types. They hold a good charge, and can be recharged about 300 times. Your short battery life may also be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent full power from flowing to or from the batteries. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Put in new batteris and nothing happens. They are


First, make sure that the "new" batteries have a full charge. If you don't have a meter to check them with, try using them to power something else. Also, if using rechargeable batteries, make sure that they are the correct type for the camera. NiCd batteries will not work well in a camera that calls for Ni-MH batteries.

If the batteries are OK, your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery connections inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts with a clean soft cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper). Remove any specks that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean and reinstall the batteries.

The above clears about 90% of power-up problems, and I hope it works for you. If not, your camera may have a more serious problem that requires repair by a camera shop or the manufacturer.
