Low Power Warning For Full Charged Camera Battieres

I have noticed that, some users asked that, there old cameras always display low power warning for full charged new batteries, or there will be a low power warning after only taking 5-6 pictures.

If you have met this question (I wish not), I'd like to share the solutions.

The this problem are so common for Canon PowerShot A series cameras when you try to powered your camera by Ni-MH batteries. This is because that, the camera judge the battery is power off by voltage of the battery. And if you use Ni-MH batteries for your camera, the Ni-MH batteries' voltage is lower than the Li-ion ones and close to the camera's judge voltage of low power, so the camera will warn you to change a new battery.

So if you use Li-ion camera batteries this questions will be solved simply.

Battery low indicator comes on even after new battery installed


I also have this problem. I put freshly recharged batteries in the DX3900 and the camera starts to turn on and reads the memory card (the green LED blinks) and then I notice that the in CAPTURE mode the lens does not extend out of the body housing. The top display shows a flashing low battery warning and after approx. 15 seconds, the camera shuts off with no function.

I have determined that the camera appears to have changed its low battery sense level as I have verified that the batteries are indeed fully charged by using a volt meter. If I have the camera in a warm environment, and do not have the LCD display on (removes a major power drain) the camera can be made to work for a short while. If I select the LCD to turn on, the extra drain seems to cause the camera's battery monitor to think that the battery voltage is too low and the camera shut down. I have yet to resolve this issue.

false low battery warning


Same thing happened to me when I used alkaline batteries. Have you tried fully charged NiMH? If not you may have a "leak". Your next option is the service center.
