Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Won't power on with Rechargeables, only standard batteries.

This happened the other night: my camera sort of froze up, and after resetting, would not power on again. I tried several sets of fresh batteries (all rechargeables that I have used in the camera before), and nothing. A pair of alkaline batteries, however, and all was fine. So the camera works, but has become rather environmentally (and financially) unfriendly.

Any thoughts?

How do you charge lumix DMC-LS6 camera


You don't. The DMC-LS6 uses standard AA batteries, either disposables or rechargeables. If you use rechargeable batteries then you must charge them outside the camera using a separate charger. AA rechargeables and chargers should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Is it possible to charge my olympus fe-46 from my computer?


In a convoluted way. The FE-46 uses standard AA batteries. You may use either disposable alkaline or lithium batteries, or rechargeables. If you use rechargeables then you must charge them outside the camera. There are chargers that run from a computer USB port, and there are even AA batteries that plug into a USB port. However, you canNOT charge the batteries by connecting your camera to your computer.

Please,what batteries do I use for my Nikon CoolpixL22. Thanks for your help


The L22 takes two standard AA batteries. You may use disposable alkalines or lithiums, or rechargeable NiMHs. Don't mix them, that is, use two of the same kind. If you use rechargeables, you must charge them separately; the camera is not a battery charger. You can use any brand, though I'd stick with the major brands.

Lithiums will last longer than alkalines but cost more. Rechargeable batteries cost more and won't hold a charge as long as alkalines, but can be reused.

Just purchased a finepix s1800 and fitted new batterys but it wont turn on . can anyone help. thanks nige


Many times these digital camera require photo lithium batteries or rechargeables. I recommend you Purchase these first and try it out. Many times the standard household batteries just do not have enough power to turn on digital cameras. If you are still experiencing problems after new batteries then return back to store for another camera because that model may have a problem.

What is the best batteries to use for the Kodak EasyShare C433?


That's your decision. Alkalines are the cheapest. Lithiums will last longer but cost more. Rechargeables won't last as long per charge but they can be reused.

If you're going on vacation, you might want lithiums. If you're staying close to home, you might want rechargeables you can charge up every night. No matter what you do, you'll probably want a set of spares just in case, just as you'll also want a spare memory card.

Camera is always low on power even when new batteries are installed


Are you using the high power rechargeables, or normal AA's? Some of these cameras will only shoot 20 pics on AA"s, where the good rechargeables will get 1-200+ shots, check with your manual on recommended batteries.
