Battery low indicator on Canon Powershot A470 camera is always on


You're using alkaline batteries. No matter how much you pay for alkaline type batteries, they just cannot cope with the amount of power that a digital camera needs - especially an older model. Use a type called lithium AA, energiser make a very good version. You can usually buy them in camera shops, and they can be a little pricier, but the camera will take between 300-500 photos per set, so worth it. If thats not possible I would suggest using rechargable batteries with a charger - the higher the number the stronger the battery. 2100mAh to 2900mAh should be okay for a camera, and the best type is niMH (not niCD). Good luck.

What type of batteries?


Your camera uses two standard AAA size batteries. You can pick up throw-away batteries or NiMH type rechargeable batteries for it at just about any store.

Why is my camera batteris won't last what type of


You didn't mention whether you're using rechargeable batteries or throw-aways. If rechargeable, I recommend Ni-MH over other battery types. They hold a good charge, and can be recharged about 300 times. Your short battery life may also be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent full power from flowing to or from the batteries. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

If this response helps, please take a moment to post a rating for me. "Very Helpful" would be appreciated.

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM CAMERA EAT UP BATTERIES AND LENS STAY OUT


Try lithium ion or rechargable batteries (maH > 2500). Make sure you change the battery type setting in the Setup menu. Otherwise the camera will not read the battery charge properly.

Sony DSC-S650 ( 7.2 MP and 3x zoom) - Not working


I have the same camera and have had the same problem. The first time I had to change batteries I could not find lithium batteries and ended up trying alkaline batteries. I was only able to take 1 or 2 pictures before they would die and the camera would shut down. When I switched back to lithium batteries, everything worked fine. I hope this helps.

Red light flashes and LCD turns off and on


A quick test would be to purchase a set of Duracell Ultra Digital batteries and try them. They won?t last for very long; however, if they make the red light go away then you problem is either the batteries you are using or the charger. More often than not its going to be the batteries so we?ll start there: Check your batteries, you should be using Nickel metal hydride (Ni-ME) that are rated at 1450 (I use 2500) mAh or better. If the batteries are more than one year and you?ve used them a lot then its likely the batteries just aren?t holding a charge anymore. Purchase a new set or borrow a working set from a friend. Charge them in your charger and try in your camera, if the red LED goes away use the batteries till they need charging again. Charge them in your charger and if the red LED stays off then the batteries were the problem. If the red LED returns then try charging your batteries in someone else?s working NiME charger. Put them in your camera and if the red LED goes away then your charger is the fault.

No firmware upgrade available yet, but did you set the camera settings to the TYPE of battery you are using? Go to Setup, chose Battery, then set type - alkaline, lith, metal hyd, etc and see if that helps.
