Digital cameras are famously demanding on batteries, and the early Fuji ones were notorious. Ni-MH rechargeables are definitely the way to go, but you don't mention the capacity rating of the rechargeables you are using.

NiMH batteries with a capacity of 2700mAH or more are available, and these will obviously last longer per charge than those rated 1600mAH or so. However, all things come to an end, and while Ni-MH cells are supposed to be rechargeable hundreds of times under ideal conditions, in real life they will lose a bit of capacity every time until they become a bit short of puff.

My Panasonic modelkx-tg4741will only charge on one charging stand out of four. the base will not charge. I installed new batteries in each phone


1. Check the power supply from the wall outlets being used for all phones and check the wiring connections to the phones.

2. These phones can only use Nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) batteries. Don't use some other type of rechargeable battery such as a Ni -Cd rechargeable battery. Check that the battery installed in all the handsets is the Ni-MH type.

3. Clean the contact points on the charging stands and base unit.

4. Remove all the batteries from the handsets and clean the battery contact points.

Are you sure you are using fully loaded battery's, because most camera's will automaticly shut down, when the battery voltage drops under a certain voltage. Sure your battery is still in tip top condition?
Don't use NiCD batteries, only alkaline and Ni-MH rechargable batteries should be used.
Page 15 of the manual shows how you can find out if you are using correct (with enough charge) batteries.

How many hours we should charge the battery fist time Nokia-2700


There are basically 3 types of chemicals currently being used for cell phone and laptop batteries. Ni-cad, Ni-mh and Li-ion. There is a fourth makineg its way in Li-ion polymer. A couple things are consistent for all types of batteries no matter what chemical is inside. You must initially give the battery a 12-14 hour charge on the home charger. (Don't use a cigarette adapter for the first charge. This conditions the battery and don't take it off the charger that first time even if the charging indicator says it's full after 3 hours. Also the manufacturer's also state to run it thru 3 charge cycles. What that mean's is that you fully charge and fully drain 3 times. 1 full charge + 1 full drain = 1 charge cycle. Here's where the way you charge the battery starts to differ.

Ni-cad: Mostly only on older devices, has a "memory" effect, should be drained before a full charge is put on it, should be removed after overnight charge or can be overcharged and burnt out.

Ni-mh: Still used for some devices, has slight memory effect but not enough to have to fully drain before the recharge, should not be consistently left on charger after full charge that can eventually burn out battery and shorten usage time.

Li-ion and Li-ion polymer: Used on a lot of newer devices, has no "memory" effect, should be recharged as often as possible, actually likes to be charged and draining it regularly can cause the usage time to be shortened, can NEVER be overcharged so whenever you're near a charger put it on there. Besides those benefits a li-ion battery is lighter and smaller but the chemical can hold more charge than Ni-cad and Ni-mh.

So the one reply to your question said to error on the side of draining the li-ion batteries. This is incorrect information. You want to charge the battery before it gets below a 20% charge. Also batteries will not go bad from accidentally doing the incorrect charging procedure here and there but normally follow the correct procedure. One last note try to use the home charger more often than the cigarette lighter charger for best long term results. Cigarette lighter chargers do not give a full charge (about 95%) which in the long run can damage any type of battery listed.

My camera just does not seem to hold a good battery charge. I use fully charged batteries and this also happens with Duarcell too. I am only using the camera in the "on" selection.


Some digital camera **** the life out of batteries, especially the older ones, even when off. It stores info like date and time etc. I take the batteries out when I am not using it for a while. True it is a pain resetting the time but it saves the batteries. Also go for the top line rechargebles,

I just replaced the batteries in my camera and the camera will not turn on. finepix s8100fd


(Nice camera :)

Typically, if the camera worked before the batteries were replaced, then non-function after battery replacement comes down to two items:

1) the batteries were inserted wrong way (with the wrong positive (+) or negative (-) end up or down. Check the inside of the battery compartment to see a little diagram with the + and - sign. Or else look in camera manual.
Fuji s8100 requires 4 x AA batteries, either Alkaline or Ni-MH rechargeables.
The two outer ones should have positive (+) bump UP, and the two inbetween should have the negative (-) smooth UP.

2) or the batteries are not new enough or not fully charged.

Also, when you replace batteries, never mix Alkaline with Rechargeables, and do not mix Old with New. You must go with either 4 Alkaline, or 4 Rechargeables, and either be new or just recently charged up.
Sometimes dirt may hamper the contact, but not usually.
And do make sure the battery cover latches down snug.

S630 lens out and wont turn on


Cameras belonging to the S Series really do have a battery type option that needs to be set up first for proper power connection.

Recommended batteries are just:
- Alkaline (Non-rechargeable)
- Nickel-metal Hydride (Rechargeable)

Just the proper battery type by:

- Pressing MENU/OK button
- Scroll to the right until you are in SETUP 2
- Keep on scrolling down and look for battery type
- Press the right button to pick up on 2 options
like Alkaline and Ni-MH
- Press MENU/OK for changes to be saved
- Keep pressing MENU/OK to get out of the MENU

Once, it's done, camera needs to be turned off for a few seconds
so that settings made will be refreshed with the camera.

As you turn camera on, you're now ready to take many pictures.

ALKALINE (Non-rechargeable) batteries when set to the correct battery type will really take a maximum of 100 pictures.

For the Rechargeable batteries (Ni-MH), when those are fully charged, and the battery type is set to Ni-MH, it will be taking more than a hundred of course.

I hope this help you a lot.

Fuji A345 finepix


As batteries are recharged- they develop a 'memory' That is to say starting with a new fully charged battery- the 'low' light may come in when the voltage drops below a certain value. The battery is not however fully discharged. It could have say 25% residual in it. When recharging- the charger is charging the 75% only, and on the next recharge- that mush less again until the battery is only offering a small percentage of its capacity. The answer is to put the low battery in a simple device - a torch - until it is completely down Then recharge - you will then get the full capacity of the battery. Meanwhile do contact the Tech support of the manufacturer just in case there is a known problem with a given model.

Can't use chargeable batteries


If your camera doesn't work with NiMH, then it's most likely that you have either one or more bad atteries, or your camera is defective. p. 6 from the user guide: "..Ni-MH batteries left unused in storage for long periods can become ?deactivated?. Also,repeatedly charging Ni-MH batteries that are only partially discharged can cause them to suffer from the ?memory effect?. Ni-MH batteries that are ?deactivated? or affected by ?memory? suffer from the problem of only providing power for a short time after being charged. To prevent this problem, discharge and recharge them several times using the camera?s ?Discharging rechargeable batteries? function. By repeating this cycle several times, the temporary reduction in performance caused by ?memory? or ?deactivation? can be remedied and the batteries can be restored to their original performance levels. ..." Sorry i cant help you more..
