You did not say what kind of batteries you are using. If they are AA rechargeables they need to be recharged if they havenot neen used for a while. Say if you took 4 or 5 pictures, the batteries died, you charged them but did on use the camera again for several weeks. When you do they will be dead again, that in the nature of rechargables, they lose charge just sitting there. Solution find the Sanyo Enteloop or Rayovac Hybrid brands, these next generation rechargables have a shelf life similar to NiCads.

Cant take more than 2 pictures because it says the batteries are too low, while new batteries are in. What can i do?


Just a hunch - your camera's in-built capacitor is malfunctioning. You need to send your camera to service.

Battery won't hold a charge in camera, but batteries are new


Hello Sonja, Try a firmware update for the CX7430 available at Kodak website listed under SUPPORT, be sure to get the firmware download for your model camera ONLY !!!!! If this does not help, some of these batteries that come from China are very low quality and have had them discharge sitting on the shelf !!!! Try Duracell or Other name brand battery, watch out for some sold on E-Bay as many are very low quality.
Best Regards, Russell

How do you get the camera to charge? I put in new batteries and it still says battery low and shuts off. I have plugged it into the computer and it still won't charge. It won't even turn on.


Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.

Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.

If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or

Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.

I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

Low battery indicator with new batteries.


AA alkaline batteries dont have the "power" that is require by the bigger better cameras to take and process pictures. NiMH is the best route.

Fujifilm Finepix a825 Digital Camera Battery Life issue


2 long shots as I don't know anything about the a825
Some cameras have a setting in their menu that allows you to choose between alkaline or NiMh (rechargable). If the setting is wrongly set to alkaline when using rechargable it is unlikely to recognise that the batteries are charged and would report low battery. Check your manual to see if their is a select battery setting and check whether it is set correctly.
Occasionally errors on digital cameras can be corrected by removing the memory card and batteries, leaving for 2-3 days and then putting back in the batteries, turning on, turning off, putting the memory card back in and turning back on.

Replace battery sign in New canon A590si camera.


You're using the wrong batteries. You need to purchase lithium batteries. They are quality batteries for high powered, battery operated electronics. Personally, I have a battery charger and use rechargable duracell batteries. (HR6/ DC1500/ NiMH/ 1,2V) Gives you approximately 16 hrs before having to recharge.
