My old Kodak digital camera battery won't hold a charge for longer than about 6 pics Answered

I thought maybe the battery needed to be replaced so I did it and followed all the instructions on the battery to a tee before it's first use to no avail, even with the new battery it won't keep it's charge, any suggestions on how I might fix this?


.  My first guess is the same as steveastrouk - a weak charger. Checking under load with a voltmeter is probably not possible for you, so try a known good charger.
.  Second guess is that the battery contacts need to be cleaned. The eraser on the end of a wood pencil works well. Be careful not to get the pieces of eraser that rub off inside the camera.

Sounds like the charger isn't working to me perhaps ? Can you charge it anywhere else ?
