My batteries drain so quickly when I put them in. I put in brand new ones and they last maybe 5 minutes. is there something i can do to change this?


hi, what battery are you using? most of the kodak digital camera using AA battery has a problem if you are not using KODAK BATTERY that specified in the battery cover. try to use duracel,energizer battery it will work after 5 to 10 shots of picture only. if you notice also the height of the said 2 battery are smaller compare to kodak batt.that's why the contact between to batt and pin inside of the camera are not good.
try to use kodak battery.

Just bought a second hand Canon Powershot SX100 IS.


Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

I am using normal aa batteries but they are only lasting for 2 pictures then i have to change them. Can you tell me how i can make them last longer please.,


We suggest Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA batteries to our customers in our camera shop, and they love them! They last a really long time, and are well worth the extra cost. We sell loads of them, and I've only had good comments back, not one bad one. I hope this helps. If it solves your problem, please rate my solution favorably. Thanks

Battery life of kodak easy share is 2 pictures ... if that


Please check what type of batteries are these.
Z1085 will only work with LITHIUM AA's, Lithium CRV3 (you have to make sure it's not Ni-mh crv3) and a rechargeable KLIC 8000 Lithium-ion battery pack (the blue one). It will not work with any other type of rechargeable battery but KLIC 8000. If you're trying to use ni-mh rechargeables, it will really not work.

My Canon S2 IS keeps saying 'change the battery' even if I put the new batteries in. Why...? Thanks.


there is a little coing battery located inside the battery compartment for the AA's. CR1220 you can get this at Radio Shack for about $5. If this battery is bad you will get the change batteries screen no matter how many fresh AA's you put in, Use a good quality alkaline battery such as the Energizer rechargable rated at 2700 mAh.

Blinking green light, lens not coming out, not able to take pics


I had the same issue with both my D550 and D560 that I just picked up. If you are using normal AA batteries, change to Lithium. Now both my camera's are working. I used to be able to use AA's but for some reason, the ones I have picked up recently were not strong enough. Worth a try at only about $10 for a 4 pack at your local Walgreens or CVS.

Sir my sonyDSC-40 Camera dot't power on. In power butten pressing time only one time bliking green LED.


Turn off the camera, remove the battery pack. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds. Reinsert the the battery pack. Turn on the camera.

Please make sure the Battery is fully charged before performing this steps.

Also try changing the Batteries of the Camera. "AA" NiMH, "AA" Alkaline, "AA"
Nickel-Metal Manganese are the compatible Battries for the Camera. Hope it works!

Having using standard LR6 batteries in a Canon before you will only get 3 or 4 pics max before it drains the batteries. You really need high power AA's like 2300mAH+ rechargeables for any good performance or Lithium AA's
