I used to use rechargable, but I would have to rechargethem after every use, nwe rechargeables and old rechargeable. Now I use regular batteries, which does last longer.

SOURCE: Flip Mino HD battery will not recharge

I panicked when I saw all these posts but the reset did work for me. Others say it doesn't but this first time at least, it did the trick. I stuck the end of a paper clip in the little hole in where the tripod mount is (it's further recessed than the mount itself). It doesn't seem like it fits, but it does. The minoHD was off, since by this time it wouldn't turn on. When I tried to turn it on again, it finally came on with the battery in the red zone. I recharged and it appears to be fine.

SOURCE: How to recharge battery of Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera

When you purchased the camera, there should have been a charge in the box (you got a lithium-ion rechargable battery with the camera, no?). You put the battery in the charger and plug the charger in the wall.

SOURCE: I bought KODAK NiMH 2400 mAh and it isn't

NiMH tends to have a "memory". What this means is that the batteries will get used to being only charged and discharged a certain amount. What could be happening is that the battery THINKS it is charged when it is not... or.. it THINKS it is discharged when it is not. You can try to recondition them:

  1. Charge them
  2. reset the charger and charge again
  3. put them in your device and drain them
  4. let them sit, drain them again
  5. recharge them
  6. drain them again
Do this a few times. If you don't notice an improvement, you may want to consider getting a new set of batteries - I would recommend lithium rechargeables.

SOURCE: Canon Powershot A470 - asks to 'change battery'

This happened with my Canon Powershot A470. I sent it back to he manufacturer and they said I was using the wrong batteries. Even though the camera is supplied with two alkaline batteries, they recommend using AA NimH rechargable batteries.

Tip

Extra life for your remote/ hand held devices.


Most of the remote control faults are due to failure/ leakage of battery in the deivce. It is important that the cells taht you install must be checked in a time period so that you could find out before the electrolitics leak and damage them. for his keep a date tab on the reverse side as a reminder, replacing them maybe in a period of three months. however if you are keeping away many such due to low use, please try to take off the batteries and let them idle. If however you ahve encountered such an issue, immediately open the remote, use a good cleaner to wash off, dry the PCB using a good hair dryer , then assemly them after cleaning and oiling the contacts from rust accumulation.
You must do this remedial prevention for devices that hold a battery but kept without any use.
Hope this tip is usefull. Good day.

Sometimes it happens that the ends of the battery get torn off while we place the battery into and out of the charger for charging. the battery heads get popped off which most of us dont notice.
i suggest you to get a new alkaline battery and check the same with your camera. If problem resolves go ahead and buy new rechargeable batteries.

I had the same problem and took it into the dealer who firmly taped the battery door shut to get battery contact and told me that a new door would cost more than a new camera. It worked!
