    It's strange but true. When I put the lithium battery the camera is dead. Without lithium battery it works except flash. What has caused this problem?

    I had the same problem today. The camera stopped working in the middle of a shoot - after about 5 shots. I did everything I could think of until I read this post. I took the lithium batteries out and it works fine.

    "Err" message over here, too. Here's what I've tried.

    1. Removed Lithiums and inserted 4 fresh AA's. Still getting the ERR.
    2. Used the AC Powder adapter and still get the ERR
    3. Several different CF cards and several lens in both P, A, S and Manual mode. Still getting the ERR message.

    Time to upgrade to the D700?

The lithium batteries power the flash and some of the metering. But if they drop below a certain power, the camera dies. The F33 error is probably the accidental movement of the aperture ring on the lense. If you get the error, check the aperture ring is set.

I have had my D3100 for about 2 years and love it. In the past 2 weeks it won't power up. I thought the battery had gone bad so I bought another. It powered up and I took a few pics but then 2 minutes...

are you using Lithium batteries?

cameras are WEIRD!!!! I have watched brand new, regular size personal camera eat regular batteries in just a couple pictures, then work fine with lithium batteries. batteries are just getting cheaper, so as it may of worked fine 2 years ago, could just be not so good batteries. If your not using lithium batteries, id try that first, will run you 10 bucks for 4 AA's, but thats better than the flat rate fee a shop would charge you to look at it first.

an image..just in case

What type of internal lithium battery uzed in CONTAX 167MT

The internal lithium battery in the 167mt is a proprietary unit that is not replaceable (there was a time when you could return it to the factory for replacement but it is a very tricky job and they were destroying too many cameras so they stopped doing it). It's only purpose is to retain settings (like frame number and which mode the camera is in) when the main batteries are changed so the camera should still work fine if the internal lithium battery is dead.

Kodak easyshare c190 won't turn on, just beeps

Are you using alkaline batteries? I had the same problem -- my camera cut out after just a few pictures and when I tested the batteries they were practically full. But alkaline batteries, even 'super-heavy-duty' ones, aren't powerful enough for this job. You need better, preferable rechargeable batteries.

My kodak digital camera wont stay on!

Your problem could be the result of corrosion on the battery terminals inside the camera. Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, clean both ends of each battery, and then reinstall the batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

The power will not come on after I replaced the AA batteries. Is there another battery in this cameria?

i had the same problem i found by a professional ,because i thought my camera was broken, that you have to use lithium batteries theyre a bit more expensive than alkaline batteries but do last much longer and are worth it after that the camera works fine.

Samsung S630 camera says "low battery" then shuts off

This camera needs rechargeable batteries usually lasts about a week with much use. I thought what a waste of batteries then tried these rechargable and the situation hasn't occured . it is probably because it is small digtal camera which uses alot of power.

Camera immediate shuts off after turning it on

try using lithium or nimh rechargeable batteries. I had the same problem and switched out the batteries and put in eveready nimh batteries and it works fine now. Guess the old cheap ones weren't doing the job. And they were brand new batteries.
