    The suggested solution of resetting all to factory default worked. Then I went back and set as I wanted. This seems to have fixed the problem. Like rebooting a computer, I guess!!

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


The main complaint against compact digital cameras used to be battery life. This was in the days when a 4 or 6MP would have been top-of-the-range.
The life of standard zinc-carbon batteries could be measured in minutes rather than hours and decent alkaline batteries might last the duration of a wedding but might not.

Manufacturers rushed to produce better batteries to meet the booming new market and the camera manufacturers began fitting rechargeable lithium batteries as standard in basic and lower cost cameras and with further developments in technology batteries now last much longer.
Leaving the batteries fitted into the camera when it wasn't being used didn't help much as the circuitry had to be kept alive to retain the settings.

Your camera might have a fault causing the batteries to discharge quickly but if it is working ok, probably not. If you have long experience with your camera and it has suddenly started costing lots of batteries it might be a good idea to update it. It has certainly been many years since Kodak cameras had the reputation for quality...

Meanwhile I suggest you use only high-capacity lithium batteries and remove them when the camera is not going to be used for a while.

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.

I have a Fuji Finepix S7000 digital camera. I works fine, but, when the batteries get discharged, the camera looses all the "setup" info (date, time, etc...)... Is there an internal battery or something...


There is no internal battery. When the batteries become discharged or removed, the camera retains the date/time settings for about 24 hours. Most people have backup batteries fully charged so when one set is low in the camera, they can make the change quickly.

Hi, my olympus digital camera FE-310 (1,6 years old) often indicates immediately 'battery empty' even with fresh batteries. I tried out different kinds of batteries, but the problem seems to get worse...


Make sure you have the right kind of batteries. These kinds of cameras can use the batteries very fast if they are not the correct kind recommended by the user manual. Read the user manual.
If the camera works correctly, and takes pictures and movies okay, and still uses batteries quickly, then more than likely, the batteries must be the wrong kind. Never use the cheapest kind of double-A in these cameras.
If you use rechargeable batteries, make sure they are charged fully before using the camera.

Try this: Turn the camera on, make sure that the menu setting for the kind of batteries you have installed is set correctly. If you set the wrong kind of batteries, the problems you are having is a common thing.
Also turn the camera on, then set all the menus to the default settings. Then make sure that the kind of batteries you are using is set in the menu as (if alkaline set it so... If rechargeable, set so ... other options may exist in menus).

The internal connection is damaged or circuit board is damaged . You try to tap on the sides of camera and check whether the message is disappeared .

Also possibility that battery contact is damaged so try giving power to camera through power adapter . If this works then you need to replace the battery holder .

If your problem still continues then you need to take to service center to get it repaired .

Thanks for using Fixya
