Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in most of today's digital camera. Some may even have problems just powering startup of the camera.

Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. These days many retailers sell these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many, many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

FORGOT PASSWORD IN RESTRICTED MODE CANON 40D


Try doing a "hard reset" to clear all the camera settings to factory specs:

  1. To reset the camera, remove main battery and back-up battery (Backup battery compartment says CR2016 3V on the wall of the compartment is a little tray that slides out)
  2. Turn the camera off/on switch to ON
  3. Wait 10 sec turn OFF
  4. Replace batteries.

check and see if camera has a reset switch..more likely switch will be where LCD screen is oposite side..hard to tell what happened..also check and see if camera has a lithium back up battery ..if it does remove for about 10 sec..and retry,,sometimes if moisture get into mechanism.a 'safemode" will happen..

My olympus camera won't charge properly


If the camera battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Well you mentioned that it worked fine yesterday with the battery out of the box. That should tell you that the camera and the battery are both fine. The issue is likely the charger itself. Try recharging it again, and double check that you inserted the batteries correctly, and that any switches (such as for 2 or 4 battery charge) are set in the correct position on the charger. If this doesn't work, take the charger back to the store for exchange/refund as defective.

Make sure the batteries are fully charged. It may be your batteries may show they are charged but are too leak to operate the camera. Try a new one
