I have bought a gazillion rechargable batteries all work fine but the camera will not operate as it says the batteries are depleted but they aren't what the hell is the problem here and how do I fix it!


Dear sir,
best way to check the camera is install ALKALINE BATTERY & TEST BACKUP , many times rechargeable batteries didnt get chraged properly .. IF it gives error on new alkaline battery or very low back up then check camera bateery terminal for any dirt, rust ..if found clean it ..even it will not work then get it repaired by technician

Regards

Hi, i have exact the same problem that "cnscenery" with Pentax K200d. The camera has stopped working, only show depleted battery in the top lcd panel. I already try with many diferent batteries,...


This is a common problem with some Pentax cameras. The only solution that people have found is to turn the camera on and off until the battery indicator show a full battery. You can go to pentaxforum.com to read about others with the problem.

Even if full batteries are loaded in the S60 , when turning on , display says "batteries empty" and camera goes off.


Alkaline batteries are not supported
use either lithium AA or CR-V3 batteries or rechargeable Ni MH AA batteries

Pentax k200d BATTERY PROBLEM


The battery charge indicator is temperature sensitive. If you switch off and on again, do you still get the low battery warning? Have you tried with a second set of batteries - either rechargeable, or lithium or alkaline. I would do this in a warm room, and try it with new alkaline cells. You lose some of the functions, but if the indicator say charged, and you can take a shot, then the body is OK.
Call me old-fashioned, but I use a multimeter on all NEW batteries to make sure they are functional - I bought a card of cheap LR44s and the first three were either dead or low on voltage.

Dead?


Have exactly the same prob, my camera worked for 3 years without any probs, except that the alkaline batteries didn't have a long life...tried rechargeable batteries as well, but since three weeks ago it simply says, "batteries depleted", nothing works, tried everything...sending it to Pentax after the warranty is over is far more expensive than buying a new cam...really sorry for that, but don't think I gonna buy a new Pentax again...

S40 Battery problem


Alkaline batteries are not capable of outputting the level of power required for your camera to operate. Your daughter's camera may have lower requirements and be able to function properly using alkaline batteries. Your standard alkaline battery outputs about 700 milliamps of power when they are brand new. A rechargeable NiMH battery can range from 1200 to 2700 or even 3200 milliamps max power output depending on the quality of the battery. Most compact digital cameras that accept AA style batteries are designed for these high-output rechargeables and will not function for very long even on fresh Alkaline batteries.
