    Same problem here. I Charged the batteries (have two). They hold about 7.25 V each. Camera says it needs 9.5V. Are both of my batteries bad? Are they not charging fully for another reason? Is 7.5V not enough for the camera to run on?

You need to replace the battery. Batteries have a finite life, and may die before they are time expired if they have gone through excessive charging cycles.

Pocket juice max 7800 mah cuts on then cuts off after 5 seconds with a full charge


sounds like your battery has lost its ability to charge. It could be damaged from either getting too hot, or dropping it. Age also takes a toll depending on the quality of your battery and the brand name also determines how long your battery will last if it is a rechargeable battery then it is limited to a particular amount of times being charged before it will no longer charge

Camera wont charge. Was for a while but now displaying batteries cannot be charged.


sounds you may have to replace the batteries, but try taking out the battery from the camera and press the power button for about 10 seconds. Keep it turned off without the battery for 5 min then reconnect the charged batteries

I put a new battery in my camera charged it. Used the camera till the battery ran down. Now it won't charge . This is the second battery I've bought every time I try to charge it won't charge.


It takes over 7 hours to charge, so did you leave it charge overnight?

But while the original battery is chargable, disposable replacements are not. Here is what the manual says:

{ ...
The supplied battery is a Li-ion battery. It charges while in the camera using the supplied charger. The camera can also use a Duracell CP1 disposable Li battery, which has the same form factor as the supplied Li-ion cell. HP claim the Li-ion cell will provide power for approximately 200 shots under "average" use and 100 shots with "extensive use of the LCD and flash".
Charge time for the battery using the supplied charger and in-camera charging is 5-7 hrs for a fully depleted battery. In the optional docking station, charging takes 2.5-3.5 hrs and using the optional rapid charger, charging takes 1-2 hrs. ... }

Purchased a digital camera and after about 30 pics the camera won't work. you charge battery and it will start up and then go blank, and you have to recharge battery which only takes about 50 seconds. and...


no battery charges in 50 seconds??? try charging it for longer... or if it really is a 50 second charge lithium-ion battery (which i reckon would explode and set a decent area of your carpet on fire) then replace it since it is not holding its charge...
Your charger could be giving out too little voltage...
I dont believe it charges in 50 seconds for 30 pictures. thats more output than input? is it flubber powered by any chance?

Sony DSC H-5 Camera slow response time


There is a diaphram between the shutter button and the shutter that does the focus. Pushing the button half way down pre-focuses and then the picture is instantanious. If the diaphram is broken it take a while before the shutter takes the picture. One of the AA batteries may be defective so try another set and see if that is better. There is also a slight possibility that the secondary battery (hidden within the camera) has gone bad.

Camera on for 5 seconds red flashing light then turns off


that definitely sounds like a battery problem.

when you charged the battery, did the light stay red, and then turn green when it was finished?

if it flashed red, try this:


MATERIALS: 9 volt battery, 2 pieces of wire the same length, casio battery

DIRECTIONS: connect the + sides of each battery with a wire, and the - sides of each battery with another wire. [I just held them there, but maybe you can tape them if you're having trouble.] Hold it for 30 seconds. Then try charging it. If it doesn't work keep trying it until it does. TRUST ME! It took me 5 times to do it effectively.

If your battery has gone too long without charging, sometimes it won't charge correctly any more. So do this.. IDK why it works, but it did for me!

The recycle time using flash gets worse pretty quickly if you are using the onboard flash. The delay is pretty much inversly proportional to the remaining charge in the battery. I.E. the less charge, the longer the time. This happens with any camera. You might check the time with fresh batteries (or freshly charged) and then after maybe 20 shots or so. I would not find 5 seconds atypical, but 10 seconds sounds like you are pretty close to dead battery. If you get 10 seconds at the start of a fresh battery, then you may have a problem. Also, capacitor charge time can vary from capacitor to capacitor and a 1-2 second variation between camera flash units, either onboard or off board is probably normal. Age of capacitor can also have an effect.
