Polaroid i733 that eats batteries

I am seldom able to get more than a dozen shots on a set of AA batteries. Have even tried lithium with no better results. Help.

Sounds like you need to change the camera settings and cut down on turning the camera on and off between shots. Viewing pics on the LCD screen eats up the battery life the most... just an FYI.

Difference between lithium battery and AA size battery for camera


"Lithium" refers to the chemical makeup of the battery. "AA" refers to the size of the battery. There are such things as lithium AA batteries.

If your camera takes AA batteries then lithiums will give you more shots than other types. They will also cost more.

The batteries in my DSC H1 camera only last about 10 % as long as they used to. New batteries don't solve the problem. Can the camera be fixed? Larry


I would suggest trying a different type of battery. If you're using AA batteries, often alkaline ones don't work. Try lithium or even rechargable AAs. If it's a rechargable lithium type (a square battery) try charging the battery fully and then using it completely to refresh the lithium cells. Try cleaning the contacts (silver pieces where the battery touches the camera) with a soft cloth as they can easily get corroded. Generally battery failure is not to do with the camera itself.

The batteries last for about 3 shots then they are dead, I have used new batteries with full charges and disposable batteries and all have the same results.


Before starting to look any possible fault in the camera - can you confirm that you are using good quality AA batteries (for example Duracell M3 or Energizer lithiums)?

If you are trying to run it with "very inexpensive" alkalines (or worse yet - common zincs), then you may proceed directly to flat battery warning, as they cannot provide enough sustained current to run it.

Installed new batteries and the camera will not turn on. The camera has been sitting up for 6 mo. with no use. We used energizer lithium batteries.


Try using recomended batteries:
optional KODAK EASYSHARE Docks with 1 KODAK Ni-MH Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KAA2HR; 2 Ni-MH batteries AA, 2 lithium batteries AA; 1 KODAK Lithium Digital Camera Battery CRV3; KODAK Ni-MH 2100mAh Battery Pack, KODAK Digital Camera Battery AA (ZR6); KODAK Alkaline Digital Camera Batteries AA; 3 volt DC input AC adapter

You can even contact Kodak direct and they will send you a free CRV3 battery to test with.

Low battery


Digital cameras are like miniature computers, constantly processing large amounts of data, their power requirements far exceed film based cameras and conventional batteries are simply not up for the task. I have seen plenty of times where someone has bought a brand new pack of cheap batteries which fail to even turn on a digital camera! You are best to spend your money on a set of rechargeable Ni MH batteries. They will pay themselves off many times over and will reduce unnecessary landfill. You can of course still buy disposable if its more convenient but you really do have to spend up on top of the range quality to get any good use out of them. Also be aware that cameras using only two batteries (such as the 560) are more demanding again on battery performance.

Batteries...


Hey Fish stix,
AA batteries all have the same output no matter what type they are so AA lithium rechargeable batteries should work fine in your camera, and probably better. I hope this helps!

My fe-210/x-775 keeps showing battery empty even with new batteries. the camera is only a month old. sometimes it wont open, and sometimes it wont close


if it uses AA-try a set of energizer lithium batterys as a experiment-i can pull 300-500 shots on a single set-some cameras are very strange about batterys and it's trial and error w/types-own a sony and reg batterys last 20 pics and dies-lithium have been fantastic for me

Digital still camera


Hey rolvnetr,
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 Digital Camera should be powered by 2 AA batteries. There are 3 main varieties of AA batteries which are Alkaline, Lithium, and rechargeable NiMH batteries. I prefer Lithium batteries, but rechargeable batteries are also nice but once they start losing their charge it goes fast so have a backup set. You should be able to buy any of these batteries at most retailers, and of course our Best Buy™ stores carry these batteries.

Sincerely,
Allan

*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.

Rapid battery drain in my *ist DS


Have you tried it with lithiums? It may not be a discharge problem so much as a low-battery detect problem. The NiMH are very low voltage even when fully charged compared with a lithium, maybe that's a clue. Either way it looks like a trip to Mr Pentax to get it orted :-( FWIW I use lithium AAs routinely, I tried some NiMH that I had and only got about 250 shots per charg and they failed a bit too abruptly - mid file write! - for my taste. I get 800-1200 shots from a set of Energizer AA lithiums, they give me plenty of warning of impending failure, I can stand the cost and I value the peace of mind that they give :-)
