Try rechargable NiMH batteries - if you are trying Dry Cell or Alkaline, a lot of cameras need more power than those batteries can provide.

Cant take more than 2 pictures because it says the batteries are too low, while new batteries are in. What can i do?


Just a hunch - your camera's in-built capacitor is malfunctioning. You need to send your camera to service.

Suspect dirty battery terminals that may need to be cleaned, or bent upwards, to improve contact with the batteries. Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be seen here.

Hi. It could be that the camera needs more memory. Also replace your batteries. if the batteries are low the camera won't run properly.

How do you get the camera to charge? I put in new batteries and it still says battery low and shuts off. I have plugged it into the computer and it still won't charge. It won't even turn on.


Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.

Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.

If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or

Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.

I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

My disney pix micro digital camera wont take pictures. we put in the right batteries the correct way but the LED flashes and beeps three times every time we try to take a picture and the counter display...


How old is it? The average life span for a low-end ($100. to $200. usd) camera is about 1500 to 3000. photos. That camera averages $19 to $30. usd. You would be lucky to get 1500. pictures out of it. Sorry man.

Replace battery sign in New canon A590si camera.


You're using the wrong batteries. You need to purchase lithium batteries. They are quality batteries for high powered, battery operated electronics. Personally, I have a battery charger and use rechargable duracell batteries. (HR6/ DC1500/ NiMH/ 1,2V) Gives you approximately 16 hrs before having to recharge.

Camera shutting off indicating low battery


I had the same problem, apparently if you're using a external memory card that can cause this problem...

I didn't know that but I contacted Samsung and got mine repaired.

They put a note in saying the power board was faulty in the camera.


Much, much better now. I can take pictures like I used to be able to!

Rechargeable batteries, do lose their capacity if recharged when partly down- the best way to discribe it is to say they have a memory- but only remember the last bit to be charged. So put the batteries into a torch or similar and leave on until completely flat and empty- then recharge. So do that and buy some new batteries - a couple of sets of batteries are best to have any way. Make sure they are NiMah and the charger accepts NiMah. Then clean out the contact in the bottom the of the battery chamber with the eraser at the end of a pencil. and the contach on the cap. Do that first then come back.

Nikon coolpix L4 won't take pictures & turns off


I have the same camera & personally, I hate it. My camera does that all the time, sometimes, it takes a while for the picture to actually take. Try holding down the button for a while, that's what I have to do with mine. The camera sucks up all the battery energy with only a few picture takes which I really don't understand. I think that's also why it's cutting off while you're using it. Does the phrase, "Warning: Batteries exhausted" sound familar, especially right before the camera shuts off? Oh, & before I go, my personal advice to you is: Get a new camera. I don't even know why I bought mine, soon I'm getting a new one. Yay. I hope this helped you, sorry about the camera problems. Much luck! :D
