Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS75---I have put in new batteries , yet it says " Please replace batteries" as soon as I turn it on and then switches off by itself. I have cleaned the battery terminals; it stil


Always charge batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it 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 electronic devices.
These batteries are only to be used in flash lights.

Check the contacts of the battery and in the battery compartment of the camera. They all should be clean and shiny. You can clean contacts with a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Never use anything sharp in or close by a camera.

I just bought a Polaroid 300 and the low battery lights keep blinking, I've put 3 sets of new batteries in it and the lights still blink. Anything else I can do?


Always be sure the batteries are charged.
Insert the batteries correct plus to plus and minus to minus. Only one battery the wrong way around and the camera won't work. Check contacts of the batteries and in the battery compartment of your camera. Dirty or oxidised contacts can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools to clean contacts or anything in or on your camera.
Always charge the batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Also check if the battery door is closed correct. Most cameras do have a switch connected to the battery door. If the switch does not work correct, it could be you can't switch on your camera.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In most cases, alkaline batteries 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. They can't deliver enough power and can start leaking, causing damage to your camera.

I hadn't charged my w330 Sony camera for a while ....I've only had my camera for 6 months...and it's warranty is 2 yrs. The camera is in good condition, yet when I charged my battery, and later put it in...


In order to avoid people using 3rd party batteries, electronics manufacturers have started putting smart chips in the battery packs. The camera interrogates the smart chip and if it isn't the Sony chip, the camera tells you "too bad."

In your case, since you have a genuine Sony battery (it came with the camera, right?), return to the dealer and have them exchange the battery.

New batteries should always be charged before the first use as they loose charge lying idle in stores. All batteries do.

Low Battery Light Even with Brand New Lithium Batteries


If indeed the batteries are brand new and without a doubt charged,
then you definitely have a hardware problem in the camera.

You're probably going to have to give it in to be serviced.

Hope I helped!

I found out how to fix it. (STEP 1.) Take out all of the batteries. (STEP 2.) Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. (STEP 3.) Put the batteries back in and you should be all set.

Sometimes 'new' batteries are not enough - put in a new set of high power *alkaline* batteries and try turning the camera on and off then.

Wont switch on


Some cameras have a bettery setting in the menu. You need to make sure this setting is set to the type of batteries you are using. Usually when you use akaline batteries and even if you put in fresh batteries but still get the low battery indication then your camera is set to rechargable (Ni-Mh). Ni-Mh has more power to it then alkaline so this is why you get the low indication.

Batteries


This happens with almost all digital cameras. You have a couple options. first you can buy lithium batteries, which are a little more expensive but last considerably longer in digital cameras.

The second is you can buy rechargeable batteries, which in my opinion is the best option because you can reuse them, and they also last really long in digital cameras.

the problem is, you just cant really put normal batteries in digital cameras. Lame but true

I hope that my answer was of help!
