I have to change batteries in my Canon A710 after 5 - 10 pictures, what can be the broblem and how to fix it?


Buy the best quality batteries, but NOT the highest mAhr ones. They are designed for long usage for low drain applicaions but may not be able to deliver the high currents required by digital cameras. 2100-2400mAh is said to be best. Also, use a good quality charger that can discharge and slow recharge to reconditionbatteries. I recently bought a Maha charger and some Imedion batteries. Now my camera works as it should. (previously it lost the auto-focus after a few shots). A bit expensive but cheaper than a new camera!

Won't shut off or take pics. code E18 comes on


Try removing the batteries and cleaning the contacts inside the battery compartment with a cotton swab "dampened" with rubbing alcohol. Also you'll want to clean the battery and charger the same way. Thank you, Dana

How do I get the led screen to turn off so I can save on battery life? Im getting about 10 shots per set of batterys and now have rechargeable ones and they arent working


you have a different problem my friend the screen is actualy a back lit LCD (liquid crystal display) it consumes very little power and if you are only getting 10 shots per set of batteries there is somthing seriously wrong with your camera time to take it back to your favorite camera shop

Kodak Easy Share z712 IS not detecting charged battery


I have the exact same camera almost a year too. It is a total "swinka" on batteries. About 10-15 shots on super ni-cads, and quits without warning.

A pair of Energizer 7X gave me near 500 shots. Much cheaper but still ...

So 4 months ago I bought a charger and 2 rechargeables. Charge one while using the other one.
I may get 70-90 shots per charge on these lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, without flash.

Testing the batteries without a load doesn't really tell you anything.
What's the reading? Should be well over 4 volts when fully charged. Mine show 4.2V

Error 18 powershot


The camera can take a couple of shots (clear and in focus), then stops working. Removing the batteries and replacing may produce 2-3 extra shots.

Canon's instructions (by phone) are to 'remove the batteries, rotate the on button and hold for 5 seconds, and then replace the battery'. The few lucky pictures are clear and in focus.

A better solution (not provided by Canon) is to connect the camera to the TV or a computer. This may completely solve the problem. If not, it may at least allow an extra 10-15 shots. There are several forums on the net that mention that connecting the camera to the TV completely resolved the E18 error.

A camera lens is out-of-focus. Some users have been able to manipulate the lens back into place (see reference links below). To fix the problem, it is often necessary that the camera and optical assembly is disassembled, realigned and reassembled. A non-warranty repair at an authorized service center reportedly costs between US $79 to $250.

My canon A95 comes on and goes off after few seconds.


Try to reset your camera using a command in the set up menu. An error message followed by turning itself off, usually means lens jam. Replace the lens.

Recharge your batteries for AT LEAST 15 hours, even if your charger's light indicates full charge. You should get at least 200 pics from a charge.

Battery problem


I find that the Nikon 4300 really burns through the batteries when the camera is set to use red-eye correction. This triggers three or so flashes for each picture. I think I get more than 30 red-eye corrected flash pictures on a set of batteries, but probably no more than 50. Taking outdoor shots w/o flash naturally is kinder on the batteries.

Rapid battery drain in my *ist DS


Have you tried it with lithiums? It may not be a discharge problem so much as a low-battery detect problem. The NiMH are very low voltage even when fully charged compared with a lithium, maybe that's a clue. Either way it looks like a trip to Mr Pentax to get it orted :-( FWIW I use lithium AAs routinely, I tried some NiMH that I had and only got about 250 shots per charg and they failed a bit too abruptly - mid file write! - for my taste. I get 800-1200 shots from a set of Energizer AA lithiums, they give me plenty of warning of impending failure, I can stand the cost and I value the peace of mind that they give :-)
