    my cameras battery life is extremely short. It doesnt even last a fully day if i use it more than a few times. Why?

  • Anonymous Oct 15, 2008

    I have the same problem, Fully charged batteries do not last more that 5 to 10 shots. Hoping someone has a solution for this. I know it's not the batteries.

    thanks ronnie

    Same problem here as well. Sometimes 10 shots, sometimes 5 and if you try videos? Maybe 30 seconds and its gone! Perhaps a defective batch?

    Our Samsung S730 gets maybe 3 pictures before the new batteries are gone.

That's my problem also before. so when i asked their customer service they told me that i should use a rechargeable battery that is AA 2450 mAh because my old rechargeable batts are only 1800mAh and it's too low.. and after trying it.. it now works well and my battery life is longer :)

I use aa battery's in my camera but they only take 5 to 10 pics at a time.......is this normal or is something wrong like maybe a setting or something? what should i do to fix this?


Digital cameras in general use a lot of battery power; this one in particular is noted for short battery life. When it was new, this camera was supplied with a Lithium Ion battery for longer life; if you're using regular AAs, the battery life will be disappointing. Oh, and cheap batteries from the dollar store might not even work at all!

The most cost effective solution is probably high capacity NiMH rechargeable batteries; get a set of four so that you can have spares on hand. If even that isn't acceptable, look into getting the Lithium Ion one.

If you bought this camera used, the short battery life could easily be the reason the original owner got frustrated with it.

How to charge my camera?


This camera has a LiPo battery that is recharged via the USB cable/docking station.
I have to add that this polaroid Zone 310 has a reputation for very short battery life and very short battery charge retention so this may be why you think that it is not charging. In addition, Lipo batteries also have a finite life (some 500 charges / 24months top) before they need to be replaced completetly.
Hope it helps: let me know if this answer your question.

Short battery life


Hi,

If you are experiencing short battery life with a rechargeable batteries try the ff:

  • recondition the battery by draining the battery
  • charge the battery but when it is full reconnect the charger (do this until the charging indicator is not lighting even if you reconnect the charger)
  • try to use other batteries
Thanks
Hope this help

Battery life to short


Most re-chargeable batteries are 1.2V each, totalling 2.4V. The Z712IS Camera is designed for 3V operation. Therefore using 2 re-chargeable bats is not enough, UNLESS they are 3 or 3.7V.
