Question about Cameras

Internal battery has been in the camera and working for over 20 years. Figured it was about time to change it. Now nothing works. Battery is good and regular batterys are good. When putting in battery pack, the ISO # will flash.

    Im sorry, I have been unable to locate any documents on this older camera, I would recommend you take it to a repair professional who is fimiliar with this older brand.



    your other option would be to press the request more assistance / repost the problem, not sure what the button says on your side.



    Maybe we have a expert out there who might know how to fix your problem.



    I can recommend advance camera but I do not know if they support your brand.

Time setting on camera is lost every time i turn off ,changed battery, with correct one


The internal battery is depleted. In some cameras it will charge off of the removable battery after several hours, if the internal battery is still good. Otherwise you must replace the internal battery which is a watch type battery.

2yrs old. Went thru 3 sets of batteries to get 20 pictures. Dead again. What`s the story?


Sounds like you have a short in the wiring. This is repair shop stuff, or buy a new camera time. Usually, if it is a point and shoot , it is not worth sending for repair as you'll playas much as a new camera is worth. I would look for a new camera, personally. Good luck.

Doesn't remember time and date


Keith, it sounds like the camera internal battery for the memory is dead. Normally they will last several years, however I have seen them go bad in one to two years. These batteries are not easily replaced on the Kodak models and requires disassembling the camera and soldering in a new battery. My recommendation would be to keep good lithium or rechargeable batteries in the camera, removing them only when they need replacing, or if the camera is going to sit unused for more than a couple months.

Fuji FinePix S9000 battery change clears date/time.


Hi

I started having a similar problem with my Fuji FinePix F10 after about 3 1/2 years of problem-free use. Another poster had some really helpful advice which I thought I'd pass on. It seems there is an internal battery or capacitor which basically fails after a while, meaning date/time settings etc are lost when the battery is removed. (Some people claim this is a motherboard/chip problem instead - seems to be contentious!) So the camera is faulty, but the problem can be worked around.

The advice I found, which worked for my camera, was this:

- Turn off camera and leave off for approx 15 seconds before opening battery door.
- Change battery quickly (within a few seconds).
- Close battery door and leave camera off for approx 15 secs before turning back on.

This retained all settings when I tested it multiple times. I imagine it might not work if changing over a totally dead battery though.

Hope it helps!

The battery (NP-20) for my Casio Exilim EX-Z75 is not charging. The light on the charger is continuously flashing red; had for approx 1yr, no prior problems. Please help! I have the exact same problem...


Okay I just fixed this on my camera the same thing. First make sure your battery is charged. You will need to get a paper clip. Take the battery out and unfold the clip so that you can use it to pull up the contacts between the battery positive and negative and the camera. The conductors need to touch the positive and negative on the battery. If you battery is dead you will need to do this as it will not charge your battery on the cradle becaue there was no connection. over time I think that the battery loses its connection and the spring is not strong enough to push up the battery far enough. I ordered a battery charger and new battery and it still didnt work so I started to tinker with it. I held the battery with my finger pushing it up and holding it, and simaltaneuously powered on the camera. Thats when I figured it wasnt the battery but it wa the connection with the battery and the camera.

hope that helps

Seems like batteries don't work, but . . .


I think the problem was either dirty battery contacts or a broken connection somewhere with the battery terminals. I'd cleaned the contacts a number of times with a pencil eraser before, but nothing worked. This time, I just did it again and paid careful attention that both contacts on the battery door were protruding properly--could be that one of the contacts got pushed back such that it wasn't making proper battery contact. All I know is that it's working now, perfectly, after sitting for a couple of years on the shelf. I really like this camera.

Canon S2IS " change the batteries" problem


This worked for me after having the persistent "Replace the batteries" problem for about a year straight.

1. Reset the camera, according to the instructions in the manual. (Power on, hold MENU for 5+ seconds, selectOK, wait, turn camera off).
2. Remove the date/time battery for
two minutes (the tiny one in the battery compartment in its own little plastic holder). Replace after 2+ minutes.
3. Important: Insert freshly charged batteries into the camera.


I tried everything short of getting a new camera, and this was the ONLY thing to work for me. Its also simple enough that it takes 3 minutes to do, in case it were to ever happen again while on vacation, etc.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

S5i won't turn on in Capture mode


Hi Aunty Edna. I had exactly the same problem with my S5I 4 weeks ago. Went out and bought another camera then decided had nothing to lose by doing heart segury on S5I. Found it has a watch battery soldered to board under memmory card holder which was flat. I replaced that with a similar battery and it fixed the problem. Its not an easy job but if you know someone good with there hands it would take about an hour.Hope this helps. Regards Andy

A BATTERY PROBLEM WITH THE FUJI S500


Old motors and mechanism is eating too much power, thats what you will expect after three or more years using your unit. Digital cameras lasts for about three years working in good condition, after that expect your head to turn using that cam.
