Re: Extend the life of my batteries

Using the flash and LCD monitor affects the rate at which the batteries will drain. The rate at which pictures are taken will also affect battery life. When taking pictures sequentially the battery does not have as much time to recover between each shot. To help to extend the life of your battery, the flash, LCD monitor, and sequential shooting should only be used only as necessary.

My Kodak ZD710 Will only let me take about 11 pics and the batteries go dead, I have used the CRV3 battery pack


Welcome to FixYa.

Kodak lithium digital camera battery CRV3 (non-rechargable) approximately can take pictures up to 500 pictures. However, actual life may vary based on the usage.

How to extend your battery life?

1. Use power saving features (using a power saving modes). Limit activites such as reviewing pictures/videos on the LCD.
2. Dirt on the battery contacts can affect battery life. Wipe the contacts with clean,dry cloth before loading the battery in the camera.
3. Battery performance is reduced at temperatures below 41 F(5 degree celcius). When using your camera in cold weather, keep spare batteries warm. Do not discard cold batteries; when they return to room temperature, they may be usable.

Please let me know if you have any questions and if this solution was helpful.


Thank you for using FixYa.

Take 6 pics and needs new batteries, also tried different type batteries!


Not all digital cameras are created equal it would be nice to know what camera/model and what batteries you are using. If this is a point and shoot type you won't get very much life out of a set of regular alkaline batteries, you should switch to rechargeable type and the battery life will extend for several hundred shots. Also if you leave the LCD screen on continually the battery draw will be severe and last only a few minutes. Meaning you are previewing the images you have already take to long and draining the batteries.

I insert a new battery and go to a party. I switched on the camera and after some time the camera asks to change the battery and turned off. Change the battery and the same thing happens. The camera worked...


If you've recharged this battery many times over the past two years, it may be at the end of its useful life. Always run the battery down before recharging to extend its life. Also, don't ever let it completely discharge by leaving it for a long time...it will die.

The battery can last only 30 min


get a high capacity Nickel Cadmium or nickel metal hydrite rechargable battery for best results. Don't go below 1500mah ratings. You may also turn off the LCD light to save on power, just use the built in viewfinder.

Types of batteries.


You can use AA disposable batteries (alkaline or lithium) or rechargeable (NiMH or Nicad) batteries. Lithium batteries last much longer, but are generally quite a bit more expensive than alkaline batteries. You should never mix old and new batteries or different types of batteries. If you use Nicad batteries, it is recommended that you use a Nicad conditioning charger to extend the life of the batteries. Note: If you use rechargeable batteries, you will need a battery charger. The camera's AC power supply does not recharge batteries.

Why does the charging light blink sometimes when there are no batteries in the camera?


Some models of camera have an ultra capacitor in them to extend battery life. This ultra capacitor is indistinguishable from a battery to the camera electronics. If the charging light starts blinking when there are no batteries in the camera, it will not cause any damage. After a few minutes, the light will stop blinking.

My digital camera shut off. Is something wrong?


Nothing is wrong with your camera. The camera has an automatic, power-saving feature that helps extend battery life. This features turns off the LCD or camera power when the camera has been inactive for a given period of time.
