    My i633 camera worked well for the first month or so. However, now it shuts down due to 'low battery' after only a few pics have been taken. I have purchased and used multiple batteries, so the issue is definately with the camera. What can I do?

    Low battery display with good batteries.

  • fix6 Feb 06, 2009

    my camera also keeps saying low battery. It will work if I am just looking at pictures but as soon as I try to take a picture it says low battery and shuts down. I can turn it on by pressing the green picture view button, but not with the on button it just shuts down straight away. Brand new batteries don't help.

Keep saying battery empty evn whn i just charged them

Some rechargeable batteries (NiCd and older NiMh) have a (bad) memory.
If they have, the charger cannot fully charge the batteries to their original
potential capacity.

Best thing to do is to buy new rechargeable batteries and a processor
controlled charger to prevent premature malfunction of your batteries.

There are new type precharged batteries which have a very low discharge
over time. Like the Sanyo Eneloop and such!

Keeps saying low battery but has new batteries I have the same problem. New batteries but camera shows low battery and only stays on for 2-3 minutes.

Your camera is a power hog. Try using the new high power battteries. Ther are expensive but generally work in this situation. There could also be a problem with the camera, I can't rule that out.
