SOURCE: can i use lithium AA

Yes, you can use lithium batteries in the camera. You should be able to purchase them at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Hey Fish stix,
AA batteries all have the same output no matter what type they are so AA lithium rechargeable batteries should work fine in your camera, and probably better. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,

SOURCE: Camera won't turn on. I

Hi johnandmel7 ,

If what you say is right, then you have your camera malfunctioning due to a corrupt flash software.

Therefore you need to visit the service center for canon and get it repaired as they would be having the relevant tools to install the software again on your camera.

Before doing that , please follow the below steps.

1 - Check the batteries in a similar device which uses them , to make sure they are in good condition.

2- If possible check with your neighbor or friend to give them their battery for the sake of checking your cam and if your cam starts up with their batteries then you have a problem with the batteries and you have to replace them.

Difference between lithium battery and AA size battery for camera


"Lithium" refers to the chemical makeup of the battery. "AA" refers to the size of the battery. There are such things as lithium AA batteries.

If your camera takes AA batteries then lithiums will give you more shots than other types. They will also cost more.

How many hours will 4 AA lithium batteries power a constant draw of 2.5 watts?


2.5 Watts sounds pretty high for an LED strip. If the batteries are paralled and the applied power is 1.5 Volts, then you will be pulling 1.6 amps - the batteries won't last long at all. The batteries are good for around 2500maH, (Milliamp hours). so figure you may get around 2 hours of life for the batteries.

The batteries in my DSC H1 camera only last about 10 % as long as they used to. New batteries don't solve the problem. Can the camera be fixed? Larry


I would suggest trying a different type of battery. If you're using AA batteries, often alkaline ones don't work. Try lithium or even rechargable AAs. If it's a rechargable lithium type (a square battery) try charging the battery fully and then using it completely to refresh the lithium cells. Try cleaning the contacts (silver pieces where the battery touches the camera) with a soft cloth as they can easily get corroded. Generally battery failure is not to do with the camera itself.

Installed new batteries and the camera will not turn on. The camera has been sitting up for 6 mo. with no use. We used energizer lithium batteries.


Try using recomended batteries:
optional KODAK EASYSHARE Docks with 1 KODAK Ni-MH Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KAA2HR; 2 Ni-MH batteries AA, 2 lithium batteries AA; 1 KODAK Lithium Digital Camera Battery CRV3; KODAK Ni-MH 2100mAh Battery Pack, KODAK Digital Camera Battery AA (ZR6); KODAK Alkaline Digital Camera Batteries AA; 3 volt DC input AC adapter

You can even contact Kodak direct and they will send you a free CRV3 battery to test with.

Batttery icon shows low battery even though new batteries are ins


I am not sure if this will address your problem but it is worth trying.

Make sure the record/playback mode switch is not in an intermediate position. Push it firmly all the way up. Also ensure that the mode button is not between clickstops. Then try to operate the camera

If that does not help, try the following. Take all the batteries out, including the lithium battery which keeps the clock going. Also take the SD memory card out. Leave the camera sit overnight.

Obtain new batteries - conventional alkaline AAs and a lithium type CR1220.

Next day, clean all the contacts for the AA batteries with a cotton-bud and contact cleaner or isopropyl alcohol. Let dry. Then insert the new lithium battery. Next insert the new AAs and try to turn the camera on.

If it works, insert the SD card. If it does not work then there is probably an internal problem and it should be serviced.

Cold weather and batteries in a digital camera are a frustrating combination ...


Batteries depend on chemical reations to produce power, in the cold reactions go slower. I've seen the battery indicator on my GPS unit go from full to nearly empty and back to nearly full again by starting inside, going for a hike in cold weather, then come back inside. The GPS ran for hours with the indicator at nearly empty, but it draws very little current.
