Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Panasonic lumixDMC-FX7 camera

Battery indicator shows full bars on switching the camera on. After a single shot (generally with flash) the battery indicator shows battery flat (indicator red). If I turn the camera off and on again the indicator shows battery full. I would like to know whether this is a camera or a battery problem.

    My camera won't turn on at all. I have taken battery out and reinserted, has full charge. I have turned on and off, still nothing. It doesn't make a sound, not a beep or a light. What can be wrong?

Could be either. If on switch on again the indicator is full and you get more work done then its a camera fault. If when you switch on again the battery remains flat then this could be the camera fault too the flash capacitor showing signs of distress. On the other hansd the battery could be nearing the end it useful life. How much is a new battery?

How to know battery power in nv3 camera


When the camera is switched on, the battery condition is displayed on the LCD monitor. There is a little battery, with 3, 2, 1 or no bars in it, indicating Full; 3 bars, Low capacity; two bars, one bar and none bar. In all three cases, you should be prepared to recharge the battery. But if really there are no bars, don't shoot pictures anymore,
Recharge or place a spare battery, if you do have one (or more)

Battery not charge


the battery may have developed a memory from continually recharging a partially used battery. The battery charges to this point and reads fully charged but when used it shows as flat because the charged portion is the bit that is used and not the whole battery. Replace the battery with a new one and only charge the battery when it shows as flat.

Nikon N80 takes one shot, then needs abt 10 sec cooldown


If your batteries are fresh ( have seen flat new ones older stock) and are using alkalines then I would think you have a connector problem. Can you check and clean the connectiosn inside the grip and on the camera body. I've also seen dirty lens contacts and even a sticky shutter cause this. It's usually not serious just rather annoyng until you find it.

Camera locks before batteries are too low to operate it


Hi
It could be that your battery has a fault and is not taking a charge, or holding it. Should it not be this i would then suggest in taking the camera in to a Canon Authourised dealer. You have nothing to loose under warranty and any repair or adjustments can be made at no charge.

I've tried my p72 and....


You may have the red eye reduction setting set to "on"......this will flash a series of flashes to try to condition the pupils of the subjects in your photos - you can shut that off in the setup menu....Even with that off your Sony is going to send out at least 2 flashes as it send one to meter the light in the scene and then another to take the picture. Turning red eye off though will help. Are you using rechargeable MiMH or Alakline batteries? If you are using regular alkalines then your battery meter may "wig" out on you as I beleive it is calibrated for NiMH and their voltage. You may actually be hurting your battery life more by turning the camera on and off so much! It takes quite a bit of power for startup and you will drain the batteries faster by turning it on and off. You will be better off just leaving it on in a lot of cases.
