Why does the date/time on my L18 keep changing itself


This indicates that the built-in battery of the camera is damaged.(All digital cameras have a tiny built-in battery)

Replace that battery and you'll be OK. Don't ask me how to do that change. Get the manufacturer to point you to the location of that built-in battery or put it to a service centre.

Fuji finepix v10 digital camera No.63A01601


It seems to me the most obvious thing to look at would be the power switch. I don't think impact would damage the battery unless it cracked or punctured it - and I assume it hasn't since you haven't mentioned that.

Have you checked the switch itself for any damage, and made sure it's making contact when it's switched, and traced the leads from the switch back to the board - or even all the way to the battery? I think you'll find your problem somewhere in there.

The smaller battery should be for storing long term memory - i.e. any configurable settings. Even if that was dead, the camera would still turn on, it just wouldn't remember any settings.

Why does my camera keep saying battery exhausted even when I change the batteries?


If batteries leaked in the camera the connections IN the camera may be dirty. Putting in a new battery takes care of the battery connection but not the camera connections. This is why it is very important to take out batteries when you are done taking photos. When you want to shoot again you put the batteries back in and set the time and date. You MAY be able to clean the connections with a pencil eraser. If you use a pencil eraser please blow out the dust from the eraser. If you are positive the camera then I cannot help you here.

I have a Samsung PL100 digital camera. I dropped it while at beach, it was switched off. When I went to switch it on the lens came out but then it made a buzzing sound and switched itself off. The lens is...


I had the same exact issue.... try putting it on the charger, even if you think it's fully charged... If the light is red, leave it on the charger until it turns green, and then remove the battery for a second and then put it back in the camera before turning it back on..... try turning it on. If it still won't close, put it back on the charger. If the charger is automatically indicating a red light, that means you have exhausted your battery and will nee a new one... they cost about 5-11 dollars on amazon...... hope that helps...

Even with new batteries, the screen says batteries exhausted on Coolpix L18. Sometimes by switching the position of the batteries, it turns on. (I'm not talking about changing the polarity...just changing...


Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances are that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Camera does not switch on, even though new batteries have been put in it


Is the new battery fully charged?
You mean no lights at all even a quick blink on any other light when you switch it on?
Did you plug the battery in correct way? (I guess it wont fit if its the other way around :-) but there are batteries that doesn't have keyway and they fit exactly even if they are plugged in incorrectly meaning their connectors doesn't reach)

Contact the vendor or manufacturer of your camera if its still under warranty.

Canon A95 "Change Batteries" problem!


I have this problem as well. I thought it was a problem with my NiMH batteries. So, I bought a volt meter to make sure the batteries worked. I have 8 AA NiMH batteries. I charged them all up and tested them with the volt meter. They were all good to go. However, no matter what I put in the camera one of two things happens:
1. I get the "change batteries" message.
2. I don't get the message, but the next time I check the camera (a few days later), one of them is totally drained.
Something is very wrong and I plan on contacting Canon.

CAMERA WILL NOT TURN ON


Try new good quality batteries.
i experienced this issue last night. Even after replacing the batteries i had the same problem though the batteries were from a very cheap pack & i'd had them a while. The camera worked fine once i'd recharged my normal batteries. I'm no expert but I expect switching the camera on must use much more power then review mode causing the camera to switch off before it has time to tell you your batteries are low.
Hope this solves your problem!
