Won't come on. I have replaced batteries a hundred times, just bought the $15 rechargeable ones last night and still nothing. I love this camera and would like to pass it down to my daughter who is 10.

So, you have purchased 100 batteries and none of them worked! Now you have spent $15 on rechargeable ones and they didn't work either. At $.50 a battery and adding the rechargeable ones, you've spent $65 on batteries and you still "love this camera"? I think your daughter deserves something better. So do you.

If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
Solution: As digital cameras become more advanced and include more features, the power needed to keep them functioning has also increased. That means that typical alkaline batteries likely won’t do more than power your camera for a few shots before running out of juice. Sometimes, your digital camera may not power on at all if the inserted alkaline batteries aren’t fully charged or powerful enough. Rather than carry along dozens of alkaline batteries for a single photo shoot, you can save money by purchasing rechargeable NiMH (nickel-metal hydride) batteries. Rechargeable batteries can be purchased with a charger that you plug into a wall outlet, and they fully charge in one to five hours depending on the charger and the type of batteries you’re using.
If you’re already using rechargeable batteries but are experiencing short battery life with your digital camera, it’s likely time to replace your rechargeable batteries with new ones. Depending on the number of charging cycles you perform (how many times you discharge and recharge your batteries), rechargeable batteries typically last for two to three years before they no longer hold a full charge. You may also ensure that you’re charging your rechargeable batteries directly before use. As batteries sit unused for extended periods of time, they automatically lose some of their charge.
There are many ways you can conserve battery life while using your digital camera, too. For starters, if your camera has a viewfinder in addition to an LCD, use the viewfinder to frame your shots and turn the LCD off because LCDs draw a lot of power. If you prefer to use the LCD, you can still conserve battery life if you refrain from looking at each picture on the screen after you take it.
are that you are not using CR-V3 camera batteries in your *ist DL.
I have tried 2400mAh NiMH rechargable batteries and brand new alkaline
batteries in an attempt to save money.
Neither lasted anywhere
near as long as the CR-V3 batteries!
While you may be paying $15-$20
for two CR-V3 batteries, they last a LONG time!
One of the
advantages of DSLRs (and digital cameras in general) is that you save
money by no longer buying film and paying for developing/prints. But,
even at $20 for two CR-V3 batteries, I save money! I am able to take
several hundred photos on a pair of batteries (I think the manual says
500 ) instead of $10-$15 ($2-$7 for film $8 dev/print) for every
This camera is a power hog,,,,It sounds as though your batteries are low or one of them may be defective,,,Put some fresh heavy duty alkaline batteries in it and try again...If you have rechargable batteries in it then they may need to be removed and recharged and or upgraded to heavier batteries...I installed 10,000 milliamp/hr batteries and bought a solar panel for mine...It took 74 pictures on Hi resolution last night...
You will have to reset the day and time after removing the batteries...
get rechargable batteries and a charger, you will not have that happen near as often, regular batteries do not last long at all a few pics kills them. rechargable batteries last much much longer and you just recharge them over night, pop back in.. sum other batteries don't hold a charge, may try it in something else, see if its bad
Did the phone show it was charging on the display? Was the charger firmly connected to the phone? The batteries will go bad after a period of time of recharge cycles. I have bought replacement batteries for my RAZR on eBay. Remove the battery and do a search on eBay for a NEW battery from a dealer using the battery P/N on the battery. I found a higher capacity battery for mine that lasts even longer on a charge than the original one that came with my RAZR. You can do a search on eBay for "RAZR battery". Look at the mAH rating on your battey, Try finding a replacement with the same or higher rating than your original. The higher the mAH rating, the longer it will last between recharge cycles.
Replace the battery ?
You can get one for US $7.99 from ebay, never bought but was looking some time ago.
You'll have to open the player to do the replacement, but that's easy. If uneasy with that you should get someone to do it for you.
