HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE BATTERYS


Depends on what battery. car battery I charge with i 10 means with a current 1 / 10 of the capacity in Ampere hours for 14 hours. So a 80 Ah battery with 8 A for 14 hours.
A camera battery in the charger I got with the camera. Or a good universal charger from GP. A NiMH AA or AAA battery, with a quick charger that at least needs 2 hours to charge. The quick chargers I have that can charge in less than 2 hours (one can manage in 15 minutes) all kill batteries after a few charge cycles. Hope this helps.

I have a nikon s570 and it drains the battery even when turned off


Try replacing the battery. If the camera is still draining power from a new battery, call Nikon directly and explain the situation. They might have you send the camera in and send you back a refurbished model.

I think the camera got some liquid damage. 4 brand new batteries only last about 1 hour, tops. then, the camera screen kinda "freezes" as you try to take pictures. The flash is also not really working. not...


If water HAS got into the system then expect all sorts of problems. Take it to a camjera store for a checkup. If it is expensive to repair, try an insurance claim

Kodak Z1085 IS - drains battery even when camera is not on


the camera takes 1.5v to operate it
anything less the camera will shut down
recharge batteries are only 1.4v so at full
recharge it won't last long
The best batteries are litheum that have the right
volts and capacity to keep the camera going.
try turning or the camera stablizer setting...
might save your battery power.

Nikon d40 + shooting mode + shutdown + very heat + turn off


Please check that there is no debris on the contacts of the battery or the body contacts.  I suggest that you send it to a authorized repair centre.

Drained batteries


Digital cameras do use a lot of power to operate. Somethings can make the batteries die faster. Even if the batteries may have worked in other cameras after ou used them in yours could just be that the other camera requires less power to operate then yours. Turning off and on the camera or simple viewing them can use more power then usual. Try and avoid this to see if it last longer. Also, try and see if there is an auto shut of to save power when you leave the camera on. If you have an eye piece use that to take pictures instead of the display this will also save on power consumption. Also, when you know that you won't be using the camera for awhile meaning you are storing it then remove the batteries. Some electrical items even if the camera is off they can still be draining the batteries.

If these don't help then I would have it looked at especially if you are under warranty.
