Wont work on any batteries

This camera wont work on Nihm or AA batteries (it never has) but will work if plugged in to electricity. Any ideas? Am I doing something wrong?

    I use Quantaray by SunPak batteries Nickel Metal Hydride Rechargeables, they are rated "AA" 1.25 Volts 2500 mAh. These were recommended by Wolf Camera here in Atlanta. The camera will turn on, lens extends, and within 3-4 seconds the lens retracts and powers off.

What kind of Nihm batteries you have? I bought mine 6 years ago and they still run this camera awesome :) Purchased mine from radio shack. I lost my cd to have the software on my computer and I can't seem to download it from the fuji site and get it to work :(

It wont charge


You can't charge the A80 by plugging in a USB cable. The cable is for downloading photos only. Assuming that you are using rechargeable AA batteries, you need to remove the batteries and place them in an external charger to recharge them.

Changed batteries in a coolpix l110 and cant get anything to work. No power and lens wont retract. tried everything in manual thus far with no results.


What type of battery did you use with your camera? Is the type your L110 support? Seems your camera use AA batteries, but not all of the AA battery which can put into your camera is OK. many cameras only support Li-ion battery or Alkaline batteries

Hello i put in new batteries into my camera today and it wont turn on....help! and yes i put the batteries in


Are you using the AA alkaline battery? If yes try to reverse the orientation of the battery instead of positive negative make it negative positive

Now if your using new rechargeable make sure thats the AA Ni-MH this Ni-MH is highly recommended for your camera C743

Camera turns on for 2 seconds or wont turn on at all.


There is no hardware reset on this model. We have many situation on different make digital cameras that uses AA batteries that would not turn on with some other AA batteries due to Amp requirement on the batteries. Which means that some circuit design would work only with rechargable batteries because they have more power due to higher Amp power. So I would try rechargable batteries for the last resort. -James

Batteries wont work on my Nikon L11


Hello

i have used Digipower AA rechargable and Everready AA rechargable batteries without a problem lasting a long time in this model.

you may have a problem with the battery charger itself.

batteries i am using are rated at 2400-2500 ma

in the menu button, select shooting menu - set up - scroll all the way down to battery type, select the battery type you are using and press ok in the center of the button.

you can use the coolpix nimh selection for other rechargable brands.

S630 wont turn on


I have this camera and mine did the same thing. YOU SHOULD DEFINATELY TRY DOUBLE AA RECHARGEABLS. I know you probably have ehard that they're no good, bubt my camera works for days if i fully charge the batteries, So, try some new and FRESH batteries for your camera.

Olympus digital camera wont turn on


First: thank you, for suggesting battery terminals. It was failing to power on intermittently for some time; the problem became more-and-more frequent until it would not come on at all. Cleaning the terminals saved my camera! Second: for others, let me suggest plain old pencil erasers as a good way to clean electrical contacts (something I learned from HO model railroads as a kid). A vigorous rub with the brand new eraser on the end of a pencil cleaned the battery contacts inside the camera.

*istD Problem with Vertical Grip


Digital cameras require a large 'surge' of power when performing things like processing an image and saving it to the memory card. Alkaline batteries work best when used in a device that draws power at a steady rate. They do not work as well when asked to provide a surge of power. Your batteries are indeed not dead, but they are sufficiently depleted that they can no longer provide that surge that the camera requires. Take them out and put them in something like a TV remote or a radio. They probably have quite a bit of life left. NiHM and Lithium based batteries are much better at being able to provide the amount of current needed right up until they go dead. The 100 shots you got out of your Alkalines is at the high end of what you can typically with Alkalines in your camera. The continuous shooting could be a symptom of the batteries getting low. Another option to those previously listed are AA Lithium batteries which are cheaper than CR-V3's and last nearly as long. They are not rechargeable though.
