My Epson 800 just arrived a couple of days ago. First thing it said to do was charge batteries 3 times. They said it would take about 3 hrs. first time then unplug and do again, then one more time. I figured about 6 to 7 hrs total according to manual. First time only took about 2 hrs. and other times just a few minutes. I can't get the camera to work as long as manual says. Like 100 pictures with LCD on. On a full charge ????? I can get about 15 pictures and thats with messing around with the buttons etc. before it starts cutting out and the low bat. indecater is on the screen. Anyone else having this problem?

Re: battery charge
Put 2 batteries in flashlight and ran completely dead. Charged them in 1hr. 50min. Pulled plug per directions for first time charge and plugged back in. Light went out in about 10 - 15 min. Plugged in third time with same results. Is this normal. Haven't tried them in camera yet.

Sounds as though there is a charging problem with the car. It starts when battery fully charged but when the charge is low it fails to start. I would get a mechanic to connect his meter to the battery and see if it is charging as it should. It is also possible that something is draining the battery when not in use. Check interior lights are going out when parked up, nothing is plugged into cigarette lighter outlets attached to sat nav etc., things like that.
Sounds like a battery to me. The cold doesnt drain the battery it just makes it more difficult to produce enough energy to crank the car. If the battery is weak already, the cold just makes it worse. Replace it and move on!
The problem lies with the battery. If you are within the 90-day warranty, the unit can be replaced. If you are out of the 90-day warranty, contact the manufacturer for a replacement battery. Keep in mind, to replace the battery, if you are handy you can do it yourself with a soldering gun. If not, take it to your local repair facility. It should not take more then 5 minutes to replace the battery. The cost for a battery is a $6.00 Money Order. Contact Coby Consumer Care / Technical Support

I've got my G3 a couple of months ago and in the setting I adjusted my screen brightness to the minimum level that I feel comfortable with. That did help improving the battery life. Also two more things helped as well. If you keep your bluetooth on at all times that will use your battery. The last thing that I realized was the wifi mode. Since I have free internet access came with the Iphone plan I turned my wi-fi off and it help me with the battery life too. I get avarage of 3 days from my phone without charging it now.
Wow, this is trully amazing. I went to do a search on why my camera wouldnt turn on the past couple of days, even after i charged all THREE of my batteries and found similar complaints within the same time frame!! WOW. We need to get together and fight this, cause its suspect!!! I bought mine in Mass, anyone else?
This happened to me also. In the manual it says the flashing light means that the battery/charger needs to be cleaned, or if that doesn't work, it is dead. My husband called customer service and they actually sent us a new battery which we recieved within a few days. The number is 1 800 706 2534.
I have a 3100z and you are right that alkaline batteries do not last long. The thing to do is buy a couple of sets of NiMH rechargable batteries and they last much longer. I,ve just been on holiday and had no problems at all with the batteries. (Although the camera does not give much warning when they need replacing).
