    I'm having the same problem. The camera won't turn on and the battery didn't give any indication it was about to die. Any reset feature that might bring it back to life?

    you have the choice new battery or new camera.
    Seems extreme- until you check the price of a new battery - they ain't cheap- only to find that battery is misbehaving because of some other mischief.

  • Anonymous Aug 25, 2007

    So check battery prices- great sites on line.
    or do you have a store or some such near you who can test the battery?
    Dud batteries of one sort or another associated with premium products have been in the news of late because of quality problems.
    Be a shame to dump a camera because its battery is NBG.

SOURCE: Nikon CoolPix S5 - Same trouble

I went through the process of sending my camera in to the nikon repair center. it was used very little, in fact it appears brand new. it had never been mistreated, wich is what nikon tried to convince me must have happened because they refuse to believe that they have sold an inferior product. they never told me what is wrong with the camera but wanted $146 to fix it and send it back. the only solution is that everyone send their s5 back to the service ctr and refuse to pay to have them repaired. they e-mail a survey and if we all give them low marks maybe they will decide that they should take care of their customers a little better, especially with todays economy. the survey asks if you would purchase or recommend NIKON again. I told them that I WOULD AVOID NIKON LIKE A SICK CHINESE CHICKEN.

Battery


Eventually your battery will have a short/no life indeed. Though this happens to all laptops.
Using your laptop while it is charging isn't going to damage anything. It just means that the battery will take longer to charge because you're using the laptop.
To get the most life out of the battery, fully charge it and then use it until it is empty. It's also a good idea to remove the battery when the laptop is connected to the mains supply.
All you're trying to do is extend the life of the battery. The day will come when it holds a short/no charge.

How to make the battery life of a rechargeable electronic device last longer.


Have you noticed how the more you use a rechargeable appliance, the shorter it's battery life is? I don't know the exact reason, but what makes sense in my mind is that if you let the battery run out over, and over, and over, there is a little bit of the charge that you cannot recover and use, thus making the life of the battery shorter, thus giving you less time with the appliance. I have experienced this with my first Nintendo DS, which after letting the battery die over and over, would charge for hours on end and only last for a little bit more than half an hour. The way to stop this from happening is quite simple. I have a second generation Ipod, which i have had for about 3 years, and it still has almost full battery life. The trick is to keep the battery more than halfway charged all the time. The only, I repeat, the ONLY time you want the battery to run out is the first use. Yes, that is the opposite of what I just said, but it works. Trust me. I bought a new DS and used the same tactic, though i dont know if it was more than half a battery, and I have had it for almost 4 years, and the only thing wrong with it is the right trigger. I've dropped it several times on the trigger, and that is why sometimes it doesn't work. So, next time you buy a rechargeable appliance, keep this in mind.

Digital cameras are famously demanding on batteries. You must use good alkaline batteries or better, a set of high capacity NiMH rechargeables. Zinc or "long life" batteries just aren't up to the task, and they can leak and cause corrosion.

NiMH batteries with a capacity of 2700mAH are available, and these will last longer, per charge, than name brand alkalines, as well as being rechargeable. You can buy these with a charger fairly cheaply now (though they obviously cost more than disposables). You will probably want two sets, one to be on charge while you use the other.

To extend Roomba's battery life and keep Roomba cleaning at peak performance: • Always keep Roomba plugged in when not in use. • Recharge Roomba as soon as possible. Waiting several days to recharge Roomba can damage the battery. • For storage off the charger, remove the battery from Roomba and store in a cool, dry place. • Blue or black batteries should be stored after Roomba has been used. • Yellow batteries should be stored after being fully charged.
16-Hour Refresh Charge If Roomba has been left off the charger for an extended period, Roomba will initiate a special 16-hour charge cycle. This extensive charge refreshes Roomba's battery and extends the battery life. While charging, Roomba's "Clean" button will pulse quickly. Note: For best results, do not interrupt this Refresh Charge.

Norelco shaver sudden power loss


I hope you are observing the following:- Recharging only when the batteries are almost completely empty. Continuously recharging or continuously using as a corded razor will reduce life of batteries Charge only when the indicator in charge meter starts blinking. It appears that your batteries are gone. Hope you have replaced the batteries with the new ones. Use a good brand

Battery dies for no reason


laptops will loose battery charge after a while. by this i mean the older the laptop shorter life of battery. also make sure that in pwr settings u change option what to do when closing lid to hibernate instead sleep and this should keep ur battery life little prolonged but probably not by too much but u will see the difference.

Short battery life


$orry, theres no fix to this, after a while batterys begin to die and the life becomes shorter. this could be due to leaving it on charge all day and night and not letting it frequently loose and gain charge again. even my laptop battery has began to lose its battery length - but ive had my battery for a long time. purchase a new battery and try to keep from leaving the A/C adapter in over night. you should notice alot longer battery length after that. rate me :)
