In a variable-load high power device such as a digital camera, the battery level indicator gives a prediction of remaining battery life, based on current rate of consumption. Since different operations consume different amounts of power, the battery gauge may appear inaccurate if changing the operations being performed by the camera, which changes the rate of power consumption.

A new battery was put in my 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, what should the amps be when looking at the gauge that says battery

This vehicle won't have an amp gauge but might have a volt meter. A battery should have about 13 to 14.5 volts present when the engine is running and the alternator is working properly. Fair warning: the gauges are notoriously inaccurate so the best way to check the charging system is at the battery terminals using a simple good old fashioned hand held voltmeter. A fully charged battery, with the engine off, has 12.6 volts. If you have only that amount of voltage or less with the engine running then you have a charging system issue.

Why does my camera feel hot and says batteries are too low to take pictures (when I put brand new batteries in the camera).

Are these rechargeable batteries or disposable?

The following link describes how to choose the right AA battery for your HP Camera.

Also this is the reason why your batteries say you are low (link is to the HP support page)

"
The battery gauge predicts the remaining battery life, based on the current rate of use. Since digital camera operations such as focusing and using the strobe use battery power at different rates, the battery gauge may seem inaccurate until it adjusts to the new rate of power use. In addition, after changing settings or replacing the batteries, sometimes the camera takes a few minutes to determine how much charge is remaining in a battery. During that time, the battery gauge may not be accurate."

I have a Taylor Led scale #9876B ...I purchased maybe 2 mo ago , This is my 2nd one . The first one stopped reading my weight , and will say err. so I took it back , got a new one same kind , now this one...

I have the 9876 also. After 2-3 yrs it quit. W/ new battery it does the walking o's, then ERR1. I opened it and found that it uses a strain gauge, read by an MCU. The wires leading to the strain gauge were crushed between the top of the gauge and the plastic top cover. If I wiggle the wires I get a reading , but inaccurate. Then when they lose connection, there's no reading. Considering the slop in the metal links to the strain gauge, I don't consider it repairable.

Gas Gauge goes way past emty all the time

I don't have a solution, but I can provide more details as I am having the same problem.

The gauge seems to drop below E at random times. It seems to only happen after the engine is turned off and restarted. The gauge will then move as if it is still sensing the fuel levels, but it is inaccurate as it has started below E.

I have taken my car to the dealership, and of course it didn't do it while it was there. It's getting pretty annoying and if anybody knows what the problem is, please share.

You can look at the electronic miles remaining gauge to see how much you have left, but I like things to work the way they're supposed to.

Accurate when still display changing inaccurate

You might have air bubbles trapped on surface of transducer. Use soap on it so water sticks to surface, no wax, oil, or grease.
If transducer is mounted inside the boat, you have air trapped between it.

Pentax IqZoom 700 film camera E9 error shutter failure Hi, I have a pentax iqzoom 700 that I'd like to repair myself but E9 appears on the lcd screen after inserting a new battery and powering on. Other posts mention this is a shutter failure. When turning on, the zoom lens extends and the outer shutter covering the outside of the lens opens. I've read tutorials that say you can sometimes fix a shutter error by causing a power outage during a shot and opening the battery door while taking a picture, but this isn't possible in my case because no shot is fired when the shutter is pressed, likely because the camera recognizes the shutter failure. I've also watched videos on how to repair leaf shutters and mechanical shutters, but the manual for this camera states the shutter is an AE between-the-lens shutter so I have no idea how to disassemble and fix this sort of thing. Looking thru the lens both thru the front of the camera and in the film compartment on the other side show a dark covering behind the lens even while the outer shutter is open covering the outer lens, which I'm assuming is the between-the-lens shutter. Ideally, I'd like to repair this myself, as there's nothing lost if I screw up and it's not worth it otherwise to take it for repair. I'm a complete novice with absolutely no prior knowledge of taking apart things, but I can follow directions so any suggestions or links to videos/tutorials would be very much appreciated Side note that I've searched the web extensively and have yet to find anything specific to repairing this camera model, and I'm not knowledgeable enough to adapt a tutorial for a different camera to this model Thanks in advance!
