    my camera will not turn on eventhough the batteries have been replaced. The focus zoom lens will not extract.

    I have had my A830 for a year now and the only problem (pretty major one) is that it won't hold a charge but for a few minutes. It got worse as the months went by. I read an article that suggested using AA lithium batteries. -Still the same problem. -Very disheartening. I guess now I have to call GE's help line & see what they can do. I will only buy Kodak or Canon cameras from now on.

Whats the most advisable type of battery for my ge a830 digicam?baterries i have tried seem to have enough power even for two shots..

Try Energizer Ultimate Lithium. If it still won't last for a long time, then there is definitely something wrong with your camera and you need to service it.

DaddyCass, I'd like to recommend to you that you put in new, not bought recently, or just charged, but new "Alkaline" batteries - don't skimp out on the black Eveready or the red ones (Energiser and Duracell are good).
Do this to be sure, because it really sounds like a power problem, and if you are using rechargables, you're rechargeables may be on the way out, supplying enough power to run low-powered items, but not enough for a high-load item like a digital camera.
Try this and let us know what eventuates.

It would rust the metal and solder points in the camera and probably dilute the grease in the gears.

Battery not charging

The same thing happened to my Casio Exilim EXZ75 camera. Whenever I tried to charge my battery, the battery charger light just keeps blinking. And it didn't stop. So after a period of time doing the same thing over again I called the casio customer service and they were very friendly. I told them my situation and they asked me a few questions,like my number, where I live, the serial number on the bottom of my camera and they told me that it was very common of lithaunim batteries to have a red light blinking. So they sent me a new battery for free. Thats right no extra charge and now my camera works like it did the first time I bought it. Casio customer service number: 1-800-435-7732. The most important thing about them giving you a new battery is your camera's serial number. I mean they just can't give a free battery to just anyone. Hope I've been a great help to anyone.
