I don't have a power adapter for my camera, so I always run it off batteries. The last few weeks that camera won't stay powered on. When I power it on, the screen comes on then goes black as the lens is extending and retracting. Then the thing just powers off. I bought brand new batteries and gave them a full charge and cleaned the battery contacts with no joy. Can you help?
My batteries are fully charged. When I turn it on the green light comes on and the usual whirring sounds happen. Then it goes dead. The lens does not open. The screen is black. No other lights are on. Any ideas?

Mine did this until I folded up a small piece of paper to depress and hold the small lithium battery module detect switch inside the battery compartment, then it powered up fine for the first time in two years using NiMH batteries. After removing the paper (lithium detect OFF), it still works. Perhaps that recalibrated the low battery detect circuit?
SOLUTION: Fot the past two years, fully charged NiMH and new alkaline (generic and fresh Name Brand batteries) in my CX7530 always gave a red light and immediate power off -- symptoms of low batteries. Today I tried it again with the same problem. This time, I folded up a small piece of stiff paper to depress the small Lithium battery module detect switch in the battery compartment, and put my NiMH batteries back in -- it WORKED for the first time in two years! After removing the paper and reinserting the batteries, it still works. I suspect this somehow recalibrates the low battery detect circuit. I hope it helps you as well.
