My Kyocera Finnecam sl400r is not capturing pictures and it warms up extremely very quickly. Personally I am a fan of Kyocera camera and I am using this camera since a long years. I am very much familiar and felt comfort and user friendly with this device . So I have soft corner in my heart of this camera. I do not like to change my favourite brand. Please inform me how may I get help from you .
With thanks and best regards,

You could try Kyocera, but I don't think they still have 10 year old CCD's in stock. And if they have, it could be more expensive then a brand new DSLR. And even if you have a CCD, who will replace it and what reassurance do you have nothing else is defect in the camera.
After 10 years perhaps you should try to accept the camera is beyond repair and new camera's now perform better and faster, for less money.
I bought a few SL400R.. yes I think this is the best camera ever. The battery that came with the cameras always would last very short time, especially in cold weather. But when I ordered new ones online, these would last very long. The specs of the new batteries are the same as the original ones. Go figure. After that I ordered external charger too, so I dont need to use the camera's built-in charger. Works very well.
there could be few reasons for that:
1. You are using the camera in extremely cold conditions - Put the battery in your pocket or another warm place to heat it and then load it into the cameras just before taking a picture.
2. The terminals are soiled - Wipe the battery terminals with a clean, dry cloth.
3. The battery has reached it's effective life - Load a new fully charged battery.
You may be pressing the shutter all the way down at once. This forces the camera to focus, make exposure adjustments, and capture the image all at once. By pressing the shutter button partially to focus, then the rest of the way to capture the image, your camera can process pictures more quickly. You can turn on quick shot mode to take pictures quickly.

If you are taking a picture in Uncompressed Tiff mode, the camera takes longer to process the image. Tiff images create large files and can take approximately 32 seconds to process. If you are trying to capture large, high quality images that you can print, try setting the camera to HyPict mode instead of Tiff mode.
