Re: problem with the battery

How long is the camera on before the battery runs down?

It runs down bow far... To zero?

Re: problem with the battery

You might need to replace the battery itself if its the original.

Re: problem with the battery

We have a number of BB phones. I also work with other people who are using different manufacture phones. We found that when this type of event occurs (battery running down quickly when using the camera), it is time to change the battery. 


The camera requires a fair amount of power demand, and especially with using the flash. As the battery ages and has been going through charging cycles it will eventually start to have higher internal resistance, meaning its current output capability will drop. Eventually, the capability to run the various functions will also decrease.


The solution is to replace the battery.  I suggest getting an original battery.  From experience I can tell you the clone batteries don't last very long compared to the original .
