Fairly brand new (less than 6 months old) Canon rebel xti - shooting in manual mode, then it gives a low battery message. I switch the battery and nothing. I recharge the first battery and install it, again - nothing. I removed the internal battery and left both batteries out for 30 minutes. Nada. I have barely even used this camera and I am furious. Is there anyone who knows what the problem is? If I seriously have to send it back under warranty already after shooting less than 1000 photos, I a

No pwer I am a high school photography teacher who inherited 20 Canon PowerShot S1 IS cameras (going on three years old). I noticed a few last year that didn't turn on even when brand new fresh batteries were put in. The battery chambers are clean with no apparent damage. I am now up to 8 cameras with this problem. They won't even power up when hooked up to the computer for downloading. i even changed the date/time battery just to see but didn't work. Any ideas?

My i835 Polaroid digital camera eats batteries -- a new set of batteries lasts less than a minute.The camera is six months old, but has been used only one day.
Less than a minute? There is an obvious short that is draining the battery. Check the contacts in the camera to be sure there is no bridging contact between them causing the short circuit. Otherwise, e-mail a service tech at the Polaroid website with ... Polaroid i835 Digital Camera
I think I'm going to explode if I hear one more "worn out battery" explanation for what seems to be a pretty common complaint. This is my 3rd camera...all ending up with the same problem. I've had the Canon Power Shot A570 for less than a year. Someone suggested changing the settings...but even with brand spanking new batteries, I can't even get it to last long enough to get into the settings. There is clearly a problem here that has NOTHING to do with the blasted batteries.
Sounds like you have a faulty board in the camera or it could be something as simple as a software upgrade, I know some of the Fuji Hine Pix had the same problem and it was the software. Take it back to the Canon. ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera
Canon PowerShot A495 - Brand new. Used it once and took 40 photos. It then told me to change the batteries which I did. From then on it keeps saying "change the batteries" I've used alkalines and also rechargeable NiMH, These are either new or fully recharged batteries and still I get the same message. I have also cleaned the terminals inside the camera and even those on the batteries themselves. No change. This is clearly not a battery problem. This is a camera problem and its seems I am not th

After leaving my Sony DSC-T2 camera unused for only a couple of days the battery was flat. I recharged it fully but again it only lasted a day or two. I assumed the battery was dead and I purchased a new Sony NP-BD1 battery and charged it correctly. This new battery is behaving exactly the same as the old one, only holding a charge for a day or two at most. It seems the camera is draining the battery when it is switched off, or maybe the charger is faulty ??? Any ideas?? many thanks - Geoff
If the troubleshooting section in the back of the user guide doesn't help, I sugget getting in touch with Sony and asking them if it's normal, the only thing I can suggest in the meantime, is taking the battery out while it's not in use, or recharge ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T2 Digital Camera

My cybershot DSC-S730 has new NiMH batteries. The batteries can be fully charged when i put them into the camera and after a few photos I often put the camera away. When i go to use the camera the next day the battery charge is insufficient to open it. I can then them remove the batteries and put them into an older model cybershot and the old camera will work with the same batteries. Why does the new camera only work with batteries that have come directly off the charger. This is a nuisance as I

Hi there We have a Canon Powershot A570IS digital camera, about a month old. Since changing the batteries once, the camera "low battery" warning light blinks every time the camera is switched on, and then it just cuts out with a "change the batteries" message. The new batteries are fine. They have been checked with a voltmeter and are giving spec of 1.5 V each. Any ideas? Thanks for your help Andrew James, Wantage, Oxfordshire, UK

Brand new battery won't hold charge. Camera is three years old. I bought an extra battery when I bought the camera. They both seemed to go bad at the same time, so I recently bought two new lithium batteries, just like the originals. I'm having the same symptom--the charge lasts for only a few photos--maybe 50 without the flash.
If this happens even to new batteries, it may no longer be an issue with the batteries, but it can be an issue with the camera itself. check the maximum number of shots that the camera can take with the batteries per its specification. if it should p ...
