Question about Canon PowerShot S100 Digital Camera
Sigma SD10 battery problems, possible solution.
If you find you have to reset the date and time, the internal battery has been depleted. If the new batteries indicate you cannot take more than a few pictures with the battery showing greatly discharged, the following procedure may correct the problem.
Put new or recharged batteries in the compartment. Take one or two pictures and if the battery indicator shows about 50%, just turn the camera off and let sit over night. In all probabilities the camera internal battery will be recharged and all will be well. Depending on the camera, you may prefer to leave it on all night.
Sigma thought the problem was a bad battery holder and they are shipping me a new one but I don’t think this was my problem, maybe others may have that problem. My camera is fixed with the above procedure.

It sounds like you either have a bad battery, battery charger or maybe the battery has dirty connections. Try another set of batteries and if it still happens let me know. BMW

I need some help please.....
I just bought a Sony camera S780 and a Panasonic DVD Camcorder from Walmart last week and I tried to charge the battery so that I could of used it but unfortunately the battery wouldn't charge. The charging light came on and it went back off within 5 mins. Is there something wrong with the battery, or the charger?

I have a Cannon power shot S215.. I have never had any problems with it,,, but out of the blue it doesn't take pictures any more...on the screen it shows a hand.. I don't know what that means, I am guessing it is saying it is busy...it will record however with no problem,, it just doesn't take a still picture... and I can't turn it off.. after setting a few minutes it shuts itself off....

Hey i bought one second hand for $80nzd and its doing the same thing, although for me the red light starts flashing after the oregon scientific logo screen shows, and aswell as the flashing light theres just a black screen.
so what works for me is, i repeatedly click the select button untill the viewfinder shows then its ok to take pictures. the time it takes untill the viewfinder shows depends on the amount the battery is charged.
hope that helped

Does your camera work with regular AA alkaline batteries ? I'm having a similar problem, my camera won't work with 1.2V NiMH rechargeables, but it works fine with 1.5V regular AA alkaline batteries.
