Won't hold charge

Pocket DV5100M won't hold charge long enough to take picture. New Batteries fresh out of the package will allow you to focus then screen blanks. Tried 4 sets of batteries different brands & packages. Tried charger didn't make a difference still wouldn't allow pictures to be taken.

Hi,

If I may add to the other posts...

Additionally or alternately, it may be a problem with the battery contacts of the camera. Since you have tried using different batteries, with or without the charger, then one possibility is that the camera's terminals that contacts the battery are corroded, misaligned or not putting enough pressure to provide good contact.

Corrective procedures would require cleaning and possibly scraping to as to be assured of good contacts to the batteries. In some instances, it may be necessary to bend the terminals in such a way as more pressure is applied to the battery.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Sounds like there is a hardware problem, when the picture is taken the device is shutdown.

if you still have warranty contact your dealer, if you don't give it a try anyways.

If theres anything else, let me know.

Thanks.

    Be sure that you are using alkaline batteries (eg.Duracell) your camera does not work with non-alkalines, it does exactly the same you described.

    If you are using alkaline batteries and still get the problem, then there is a short in the camera which drains battery charge shortly after you replace betteries

My walkie talky batterys won,t hold a charge. only couple tries and dies?


The battery has to be Ni-Cad, nickel metal hydride, or lead acid types to be rechargeable and you have to use the proper charger.If the batteries are new, get your $$ back; if they are old they might need replacing. If they are carbon zinc or regular alkaline they can't be recharged. Of course, read the manual.

Flash problem


The only things I can think of that could go wring with this camera are:
Batteries are not fully loaded or not new. When not having enough power the flash can't be charged enough, so it won\t fire.
the second thing could be you dailed in the wrong setting. The setting is for full sun light and yu are taking pictures inside. (not likely.)
The film package you are using is out of date or was stored wrong. (not likely eighther)
The flash (camera) is defect

Laptop Battery Won T Charge on a laptop dell inspiron 1525


Battery could be dead and won't hold another charge. Batteries only last for so long until you have to replace them. If you laptop is ok with the AC Adapter & Power Cord meaning it boots and allows you to work in windows, then the battery is definitely dead.

Camera turns off itself


This is likely because:
  1. You are using the wrong types of batteries (Alkaline, Ni-Cd or Ni-MH batteries are recommended for digital cameras) NOTE: don't mix different types.
  2. The battery is out of charging cycles and won't retain charge. (Most rechargeable batteries can be charged only about 1000 times after which they won't hold charge)
  3. The batteries aren't 'powerful' enough. (low quality rechargeable batteries with low capacity shouldn't be used on digital cameras, Always buy batteries specialized for cameras (from camera stores or studios))
  4. The wrong battery type is selected in the camera's settings. (Most cameras let you select the type of battery you are using from it's settings. Browse through the settings and see if this is the problem)
Hope that fixed it. Good luck.

Orange light flashes on when turn on Olympus c-50 zoom camera and orange and green lights in upper left corner blink when try to take pictures. Won't take any pictures


The flashing Orange light means the charge is flashing.
The flashing Green light means the focus and exposure are not correct.

Have you recently replaced the batteries? Or are you using rechargeable batteries? Lack of enough "Juice" could allow for the flash to not charge up (Orange) therefore not allowing the camera to get the correct exposure (Green). I would try new fresh batteries or a new battery pack. If that doesn't fix the issue it must be a bad circuitry in the body that is shorting not letting the flash charge.

Jacob

Camera won't retrack


August - this sounds like the same problem I had with my Finepix510. Turns out the new unopened package of batteries I put in weren't fresh enough and weren't working. When I got truly fresh batteries, everything started working just fine again.

Hope that turns out to be true for you.
