Drained/Bad Battery ¶
Bad or drained batteries can prevent your camera from turning on. If the battery does not work or is missing, you can replace it. The Casio Exilim EX-270 requires a NP-20 Lithium Ion Battery - Rechargeable or the Ultra High Capacity version. Be sure that the battery terminals are clean before replacing the battery.
Bad Image Quality ¶
