Camera doesn't turn on-battery recharge prob?

My camera has been great for 8 months then last week I recharged the battery and the red light on the recharger started to flash rather than turn off (as it usually does when the battery is fully charged) and now when i put the battery into my camera nothing happens- it won't even turn on.

    The problem I 'm having has nothing to do with the lens. Its the battery and recharger. I think this solution is for the sand in the lens problem, perhaps you have accidentally given your solution to the wrong person. Thanks anyway. My camera was still under 1 year old and so still in warranty so I'v sent it back to be fixed or replaced.

Battery doesn't hold charge for more than a week


All batteries will eventually fail to hold a charge. The battery chemistry and how you charge it can change how long the battery will last. The DMC-FS4 has a Lithium-ion battery so it shouldn't have as much of the memory issue of older rechargeable batteries. (This is the "you routinely recharge the battery when it's at 50% then it always stops working at 50% charge" problem.)

How old is your battery? Eventually you will need a new battery but the time to replacement will depend on the number of recharge cycles. With a Li-ion battery, I'd expect several thousand recharges before failure. Temperature and usage will effect this. The battery does lose charge even when not used.

Be careful, some versions of the firmware look for Panasonic's specific batteries or a "that match the Panasonic rigorous specs".

I've seen a few devices where the charger failed before the battery. If a new battery doesn't seem to be charging, replace the charger. I hope this helps.

My Fuji Finepix S5800 tells me my brand new batteries are flat.


It sounds like you have bad batteries. I have had rechargeables that have suddenly done the same thing. I have learned that buying really cheap ones doesn't work out. If you buy a good branded set, I think you will find that they are much better. :)

Battery keeps going dead - second time around


Okay, well depending on the batteries it has different amounts of time you should charge it for, the packet of the rechargeable batteries should tell you this. Check this first because you may be charging it the incorrect amount it needs.
Ask in store you brought it from if you aren't sure.

no problem. your rechargable is not strong enough for this camera. i use rayovac rechargeable from wal-mart and the batteries have to charge for two full days and make sure the light on the charger is off before removing the batteries from the charger. then put them in the camera and it will work perfectly. your batteries aren't strong enough for the camera. go out and get some energizers made just for digitals. they last forever but, they'll do until you get your rayovac rechargeable recharged. and coming right out of the pack they are not charged give it 48 hours and they'll last weeks.

Batteries are Depleted


A camera rep told me that use about 2500mi (?) batteries instead of the 900 I was using otherwise the batteries will be depleted with just one picture. Digital cameras or any other digital piece of equipment needs the extra power. Make sure that your charger will charge the 2500 power ones fully.

Losing power rapidly...


The only thing I can suggest is that the metal connections on your camera have corroded due to the long life of your camera. I had a similar problem where any batteries I used would not work, regardless of what kind of battery it was. Turns out I had a nice greenish layer of corrosion on my connections which I sand-papered off. This might be a little tricky if your connectors are way inside of a battery holder, but it can be done nonetheless. Try taping some sandpaper to the flat end of a pencil and clean it out that way. Hope it works.

Drained Batteries


I use professional $70k cameras for work and it's the same type of thing. If you're not using it, take the batteries out. With my A75 I have some energizer 2200mpa rechargeable AA's and the seem to last about a month or so. If I happen to be "cranking" through pictures though (upwards of 300-500) in one sitting, it will suck them dry. The rechargeable batteries last longer than the Alkalines. I was heistant with the rechargeables but for $20 I picked up a 15 minute charger and the 2200mpa AA's, now I recommend them to everyone with a digital camera. Digital cameras eat Alkaline batteries in a hurry.
