Having problems with your Pentax Optio S10 Digital Camera ?

I have had an Pentax Optio S10 auto focus camera for about 3 years and it hasn't missed a beat. But now it will not take photos in flash mode. I have tried the usual settings as per the manual, and noticed a previous posting of the same issue. The response was to recharge the battery, which currently I am doing. The indicator on the camera's LCD however shows the battery to be almost fully charged though. Would this be the same issue? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Graham

My wife purchased for me a Kodak Easy Share Z981. I charged the included batteries and loaded them per instructions. When I turned on the Camera the indicator showed 1/2 battery. I took two pictures and was out of power. I then recharged the batteries overnight and tried again with simular results. I am asking if this is typical with this camera. If so how do I go about getting my money back for this useless camera.. The serial number on my camera is KVYMN034G5600 in case there is a reca

Battery problem This morning I turned on my brand new Nikon Coolpix 5400 and got nothing on the screen. pushed some buttons and still nothing. Went to turn it off and it won't. The lens stays extended and the power light is still on. I don't know if maybe the batteries are so low they can't do anything, but I was under the impression that the camera had an indicator for the batteries really needing to be recharged. The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged


Some of these cameras go from "low" to "no" very quickly. The electronics are more sensitive to available voltage than the mechanicals and it doesn't take full voltage to keep an led lit or to retract the lens. But the cpu shuts down. I would have ex ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

Last year, my friend & I both bought factory-reconditioned Polaroid 7.0MP digital cameras i737, supplied in original boxes, with all necessary bits. Both of us got 'Replace battery' messages, and cameras stopped working; we both gave up. A while ago, my grandson "poked around", had no trouble taking pictures, but got The Message.

My PowerShot S3IS drains it's batteries while turned off. I first thought my rechargeables had gotten old, so bought new non-rechargeable batteries, took a few pictures, and the next day the camera indicated it needed new batteries.


As you probably have figured, something internally might be draining the batteries. You can try to ohm out the battery terminals to verify this, but it could be a high-resistive short, and not noticeable. You have three choices, basically- keep t ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

The re-chargeable battery in my M1063 Kodak Easyshare camera went completely flat, because I forgot to check the battery level.

I have checked the help menu and read the manual, but no instructions on how to correct the date.
