Fuji a350. When I got the camera, it took many many photos(50-100) with alkaline...


Many digital cameras (eg Samsung D53, Nikon 2100) have extremely poor battery life with alkaline batteries (under 20 shots!). Sometimes they won't even take a single picture.

Try using rechargeable batteries or "oxyride" disposable batteries. They perform infinately better.

I put new batteries into the camera but it continually tells me "low battery". What's wrong??? Do I need a specific brand or type of battery?


Yes, you are correct.


Digital camera need a high drain battery like NIMH or ALKALINE type, and don't a multi purpose ( standard battery).

My favorite battery is Energizer 2500 mAH ( recharged type).

Please check the battery you are using right now and replace it as guided above. If there is no internal problem on your digital camera, this recommend batteries will working just fine.

My canon keeps telling me my batteries are low.


There are several things that could be causing this, let's look at the obvious ones:
- You are not using the officially suggested batteries by the manufacturer (yes, it does make a difference)
- The door that holds the battery is either not there, not firm enough and hence not provided full battery contact.
Or... you really did a trick on your camera and some sensor inside is not talking to the others.

Part of your repair includes cleaning your camera.

My camera seems to be drawing energy from the batteries even when it is off because when I put brand new betteries in, within 72 hours they appear dead. I have the Canon SX10 IS. The camera is 10 months...


I have had the same issue. However, it is not draining the batteries, it is telling you the batteries are low even though they are not.
Sorry I don't have an answer though. I have checked batteries after the camera told me they were low/unusable and found them to be fine.

Problem of rechargable battery


The best way to tell if it is a battery problem would be to charge them fully then use the camera and see how long they keep working as compared to what their specs are (probably in your camera info). It is also possible that the charger is at fault, which can be tested by measuring the output of the charger with a meter, or check to make sure the charger is the proper one for those batteries ("quick" chargers may need special batteries, etc.). If your camera can use alkaline batteries of the same type, try new ones and see if it still says "low" -- if so then it could be the camera. Hope this helps. If not, check your camera website and try troubleshooting there.

Low battery signal


If you camera still tells you that you have low battery. It is possible that the battery that you put it was not desinged for digital cameras. Please try batteries that are specifically designed for digicams. You can ask store personnel this when you buy batteries.

Low battery warning


It's something with the camera. I have the same camera and the same problem. I bought 2 brand new batteries, charged them, and the very first thing the camera did when I installed the new batteries was tell me that they were dead!! Grrr....

As a workaround, when it tells you the battery is dead, just open the battery door, close it, and try again. Repeat if necessary. With my camera, doing this lets me use the same battery for days and days. The battery is NOT dead - it's just a faulty warning message.

Low battery indication


You have either a faulty charger, a faulty battery or a fault in your camera. I purchased 2 batteries for my Sony 505v and from new one of them kept flashing an empty battery sign right in the middle of the display. Actually it was fully charged but Sony batteries have a little circuit inside them which tell you how long the batteries will last. In my case I could continue to use the battery but put up with that flashing icon. I returned it to where I purchased it and it was replaced Immediately. Please ,next time give us a little more information as to what battery type it is and which camera it goes in. Some cameras can develop a natural short circuit over time. BMW
