The only thing that will deplete batteries that fast is that they are being shorted out. Anything odd in the battery compartment? Batteries inserted correctly? You may need service.

Hi, My kodak EasyShare M320, when I switch it on, the lens will come out and goes back instantly and die down. what is the problem?


I own a Kodak EasyShare but is a different model. If my battery is low this is the same thing that happens to my camera. You might try putting in a new battery and see if this resolves this issue.

My mamiya rz67, which i have never used before, is making this long high pitched noise. i also dont feel the shutter is firing correctly.


Change the battery! This happened to mine too, I was terrified... never knew it took a battery until then, as I don't have a viewfinder with an inbuilt lightmeter. Unfortunately the rz needs it just to run, this is where the rb actually wins. The battery is underneath, you should be able to get a new one from a camera shop.

OneStep Express Instant Camera: where do i put the battery in?...


The battery comes with the photo pack.

The photo packs are long out of production.

Remaining photo packs have flat batteries and are horribly expensive. They're only of use if you modify the camera (not easy without breaking it) to accept an external 6v power supply. Some photo packs are advertised as "fresh" due to refrigerated storage, but only the photo chemicals will be fresh as cold storage kills batteries even faster.

Where is the battery located on the polaroid onestep express instant camera?


The battery is incorporated into the photo pack: you get a new battery when you change photo packs.

The problem is that all photo packs are now long out of date.(the last photo packs were manufactured nearly three years ago) and that batteries are likely to either be dead or to have insufficient power to finish a photo pack. Photo packs which have been kept refrigerated will have fresh photo chemistry, but cold kills batteries, so the only way that they're guaranteed to work is by modifying the camera to accept an external 6v power supply.

The expense of photo packs, their scarcity and the fact that most are now useless means that Polaroid Instant cameras are now worthless and virtually unusable. Last summer, a French company acquired the rights to remanufacture photo packs but has yet to announce a production date, but if they do go into production you can expect to pay at least £30 for just ten photos.

All photo formats eventually die: unfortunately Polaroid Instant has effectively done so along with some 35mm negative and transparency films.

Hi, The rectifier of my honda CBR 1000f year of made: 1992 has just burned again. I had the old one replaced last november 2009. I want to know what the problem could be that the new one has burned. What...


The three yellow wires carry AC current from the generator to the rectifier. The rectifier turns this AC current into DC current and sends it back to the battery through the red and the black wires. I am not certain what the purpose of the 7th wire is on the new rectifier except that it may be used for thermal sensing of the rectifier - which would explain why it is mounted tight to the unit.
Of all the components that make up your Honda's charging system, the rectifier is the most likely to fail. The reason is usually excess temperature buildup - which causes the diodes inside it to fail. If you are running extra electrical accessories on your bike, this can cause the rectifier to overheat and die. Same thing if you frequently let the bike sit until the battery goes dead, the rectifier works hard to recharge it each time.
You may be able to extend the life of the unit by avoiding things that put extra strain on it, as described above. Also make sure there's nothing covering the cooling fins on the rectifier - or blocking airflow to it (dirt, that extra pair of gloves stuffed next to it, etc.).
Finally, there's one thing that will kill the rectifier instantly: connecting the battery cables backwards. That'll fry it every time.

My camera dies way too fast


If you use a lot of batteries, it is a good idea to have a battery meter (tester). Radio shack has one for about $5. I say this because I've seen a lot of "brand new" batteries that aren't any good, especially imports. AA, AAA, C,D batteries should all read at least 1.5 volts dc. Under test, if the battery voltage drops slowly, it is bad. A very good battery will actually show a slight increase in voltage under load. Make sure the polarity (+,-) of the batteries installed is correct.
If you are sure you have the correct memory card and it still doesn't stay in, it could be that the retainer tab is broken. If this is the case, try inserting a small piece of paper as a shim, and that may hold it in place.
If the camera is under warranty, you may want to return it.
I hope this helps.

Camera lense


There is a very very easy way to fix this problem..

This can happen if...
1.) If the battery dies when the camera lens is open (and you close it manually, or sometimes, even if you dont.)
2.) If you used a AC adapter with too much voltage or not enough. (this can happen even if you used the correct voltage, refrain from using AC adapters at all)
... all together its ethier a voltage or camera lens problem...

1.)NEVER PUSH THE LENS IN AFTER CAMERA DIES, BUY A NEW BATTERY IMMEDIATLY AND TURN IT BACK ON, CLOSING THE LENS!

Changing battery in one600 camera


The battery is in the film pack. The one600 doesn't use any other type of battery except what comes with the film.  Either the film is really old and the battery died or it's defective.  If the film is relatively new and you haven't been able shoot all 10 shots, then you might call the manufacturer for a replacement.  Otherwise, I'd buy a new film pack.
