Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE E500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Very short battery life.

I use Energizer e2 lithium batteries in my E500. I only can take about 20 pictures and the batteries are drained down to about .7 volts which is too low to power up the camera. It does not matter if I use the flash or not. Any ideas for a fix?

You could check the manual and/or the Tech support team. But in the main that is what cameras do - eat batteries. Best to get rechargeable sets and a charger I have 3 Li-ON batteries and a charger for my Oly 300 and six sets of 4 AA Ni-Mahs and charger for my E10

The battery life for the remote for my Hampton Bay fan, Model cf556br-crk only lasts 3-4 weeks. It is 12 volt and should last longer. Any solutions?

More info,please.
there are always solutions to a problem. Usually 4.
I have to dig around the internet to see what batteries these take..
Hold on.
The remote control takes 4 AAA cells.
Try Energizer E2 batteries. They are the longest lasting batteries available.
Lithium.
If the remote dies in 4 weeks or less,the remote is at fault.
Probably a factory recall for those remotes.
Try pulling one of the batteries out when not in use.There may be a power drain,internally ALL of the time.

How many hours will 4 AA lithium batteries power a constant draw of 2.5 watts?

2.5 Watts sounds pretty high for an LED strip. If the batteries are paralled and the applied power is 1.5 Volts, then you will be pulling 1.6 amps - the batteries won't last long at all. The batteries are good for around 2500maH, (Milliamp hours). so figure you may get around 2 hours of life for the batteries.

My camera is showing battery exhausted when i turn on the nikon camera i purchased a new battery and am still getting the same problem

You can try using Lithium batteries (Energizer Ultimate Lithium) instead of an alkaline battery. If you are using brand new, high-power batteries and are still getting this message, there may be a short or some defect within the camera itself that is causing the batteries to drain unnecessarily fast.

For my first generation GoPro camera, do I need a memory card with a class rating higher than a 2 to have better quality videos. Also my camera seems to have a mind of its own and shuts down after about 30...

A Class 6 memory card is required for recording HD quality video. Not sure if yours is HD or not. Anything lower than Class 6 (such as Class 4 or Class 2) will result in recording issues and possibly skipping some video here & there.

As for the 30 seconds of filming limit...

1) It may be the memory card...that is if it's lower than Class 6. As a rule of thumb, when it doubt, buy Class 6 or better. Class 10 is the next step up, but it's a quite a bit more expensive.

2) Make sure you are using good, Lithium batteries...not Alkaline. Alkaline batteries will shut the camera down after a very short period.

Here are more tips on shortened recordings from GoPro's Website, followed by their Support Contact Info:

The batteries do not last very long.
  • It is not recommended that you use Alkaline batteries. Lithium batteries have the best results and longest battery life. Rechargeable NiMH are another option in mild weather.
  • Is it cold out? Battery life can definitely be affected by the cold! Please make sure you only use Energizer Lithium batteries in the cold, as any other battery type will perform poorly. In cold temps, you can expect about half of the normal run time when using the Energizer Lithium batteries.
  • Still having shortened records with a good set of the recommended batteries? Please email our support team through http://gopro.com/support for further assistance.

I've been using Olympus 550 UZ camera for over a year now. I am facing problem with the life of battery though. Tried Energizer and Duracel batteries. 10-15photos and the battery is drained down. Is there...

Switch from alkaline batteries to pre-charged Nickel Metal-hydride (NiMH).
My best experience is with these batteries:
#1. RayoVac (pre-charged)
#2. Kodak (pre-charged)
#3 Energizer (rechargeable)

Find them at WalMart or online

"pre-charged" are new technology rechargeable batteries. They are GREAT! They outlast alkaline at least 15 times per charge.

The camara will come on with fully charged batteries and u can look through the pictures. but u cannot take new photos! when i turn it to the take photo button the camara turns its self off

I'm not sure what model camera you have, but it's possible that you may be using the wrong type. If your camera uses AA batteries, make sure that you are using lithium batteries instead of regular alkaline ones. The lithium batteries are a lot better for digital devices and they will last a lot longer too. However, they are a little more expensive. You can find them anywhere they sell batteries. They're the energizer e2 ones in the blue package.
