Question about Cameras

1 Answer

We have a relatively new Sanyo vpc-s120, and have just tried to change the batteries for the first time. I have tried several sets of both alkaline AND rechargeable (both of which are recommended in the instruction manual), and each time, the camera screen says "battery depleted" or "low battery warning", and it just powers back off or only stays on VERY briefly. What am I doing wrong???

The VPC-S770R uses standard AA batteries. Chargers for rechargeable AA batteries should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store. Do NOT try to recharge non-disposable alkaline or lithium batteries. Also bear in mind that the camera itself is not a battery charger. If you want to use rechargeable batteries then they must be charged outside the camera using a separate battery charger.

Can't up load pics to computer~~keeps blacking out sanyo 12.1 vpc~s120


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

This camera takes 2xAA batteries. You may be able to use rechargeable batteries but you may find the life is a lot shorter than alkaline batteries.

Have sony vpc-s120 cam that states system error... lens goes back and forth and then buzzes. the cam shuts off after...


Hello

Unfortunately a "system error" message is not something that you will be able to fix. This error indicates a system failure and requires the camera to be sent in for servicing and repair.

You may find it more cost effective to purchase a new camera as opposed to the repair price on your current camera.

The camera won't let me take pictures.


Try rechargable NiMH batteries - if you are trying Dry Cell or Alkaline, a lot of cameras need more power than those batteries can provide.

Sanyo VPC-S1080 turns on and


See if the menu has a battery type setting. Some cameras have the ability to use different battery types (alkaline, Ni-Cad, Lithium, ect) and have power management presets to accurately indicate a low battery condition. If you are set to one type an install another, a false reading would result.

What type of battery is recommended to use in a SANYO VPC-S770?


With your Sanyo camera, you've got the choice to use AA alkalines or NiMHd rechargeable batteries.

Two suggestions: if you are still not comfortable with recharge batts, you can simply take along an ample supply of AA. Currently there are newer AA batts that are designed for extra life as well.

But if you want to give rechargeables another try, look for batts that have a higher mAh rating.This is the batt's lasting power..
So if you can find a 1600, 1900, .... the higher the better.
