Are these rechargeable batteries or off the rack batteries? If they are off the rack you would want the type designed for digital devices.

In any case I would suggest you invest in a recharger and get rechareable lithium batteries which are expensive around $20 for two, but will last. If your camera takes four batteries you will eventually want eight on hand so you have a spare set when you are out shooting. Total cost would be around $100 so compare that to the cost of all the batteries you've gone through so far and make a choice. People I have worked with on this have all gone with the rechargeable lithium batteries in the end and have not regretted it.

    It dawned on me to ask you first if you are already using rechargeable batteries. If that's the case ignore the last paragraph above and let me know so I can troubleshoot your camera's settngs with you and see if this isn't a known issue.

    How old is your camera and what is the length of the warranty? If you purchase with a credit card you may have an extended warranty through your card issuer.

    The problem is in the motors that run the zoom and auto focus. You need factory service. Here is the 800 number.

How do i fix low battery problem, I get about 5 o 6 photos before it shuts down to low battery and i want to change the batteries.

Some batteries, although the correct nominal voltage for the camera, are not powerful enough for continued use. I have found the best solution is to use rechargeable NiMH batteries of at least 2100 MaH, preferably 2500 MaH.

Camera shut down

Hi the problem your having is that a component on the board isnt letting the correct power come from the battery therefore giving false reading on the batt display the huge problem you have is that they dont repair these cameras it just isnt financially worth it so unless you know how to test all components on the board the chances of getting it reapired are slim to none their isnt anything you can do as it is a board problem.
If you tested the battery and this is fine then the problem is deffinately with the board.
How long have you had the camera if its not long then i would get a refund as repairing is something they wont do sorry i couldnt help you any more but other experts will tell you the same

Depending of what you use, always be sure all batteries are the same, charged and suited for your camera. Most of the time even new Ni-CD rechargeable batteries won't work, because the voltage is to low, according to NiMH or alkaline batteries.
Always charge NiMH batteries before using them for the first time, or if they have not been used for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Always charge sets of batteries (2 or 4) together.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera.

Why is that my phone has freezed?

Dozens of reasons ... malfunction, software glitch, low power.

What should you do? Turn it off if you can. Remove the battery. Wait a few minutes. Put the battery back in and try to turn it on see what happens. If necessary, make sure the battery is fully charged.

If it is still locked up, call your service provider for help.

Thanks for your question @

I have a new refurbished kodak easyshare c160 -- the camera will not last but for one or two pictures without completely draining the batteries. i have tried about 4 new sets of photo this...

Solution: As digital cameras become more advanced and include more features, the power needed to keep them functioning has also increased. That means that typical alkaline batteries likely won’t do more than power your camera for a few shots before running out of juice. Sometimes, your digital camera may not power on at all if the inserted alkaline batteries aren’t fully charged or powerful enough. Rather than carry along dozens of alkaline batteries for a single photo shoot, you can save money by purchasing rechargeable NiMH (nickel-metal hydride) batteries. Rechargeable batteries can be purchased with a charger that you plug into a wall outlet, and they fully charge in one to five hours depending on the charger and the type of batteries you’re using.

If you’re already using rechargeable batteries but are experiencing short battery life with your digital camera, it’s likely time to replace your rechargeable batteries with new ones. Depending on the number of charging cycles you perform (how many times you discharge and recharge your batteries), rechargeable batteries typically last for two to three years before they no longer hold a full charge. You may also ensure that you’re charging your rechargeable batteries directly before use. As batteries sit unused for extended periods of time, they automatically lose some of their charge.

There are many ways you can conserve battery life while using your digital camera, too. For starters, if your camera has a viewfinder in addition to an LCD, use the viewfinder to frame your shots and turn the LCD off because LCDs draw a lot of power. If you prefer to use the LCD, you can still conserve battery life if you refrain from looking at each picture on the screen after you take it.

Nexia Q1 is flashing low battery when i put in brand new ones

Use alkaline batteries or rechargeable ones with over 1000mA

Change batteries message pops up with new batteries

Chargeable batteries usually last for a year or two. Alkaline batteries should only be expected to last for around a dozen shots (as such, NEVER rely on alkaline batteries). Recommend buying another set of NiMH rechargeables. Make sure you get 2500 mah or better power rating (look on the package).
