Hai, i have my Canon A540 for like 2 years. Nowadays, my camera keep showing the sign of ' batterie low ' even after I have replace with new batteries. I'm using AA Sony batteries where I bought together with their charges. I did try using new rechargeble AA bateries, but the result is the same.
I had the same prolem. OK, try this. Try to discharge the AA batteries in some use, flashlight or else,,,,then recharge them, full charge, install the batteriers ...they should work fine....
I read somewhere that canon is able free of charge to correct a shortcircuit that the camera is susceptible to develop in the installation of batteries......But I hope the advise will work...
Remove batteries when not in use.

This is probably a battery issue and not a camera issue. Batteries with low output or low power can be due to them sitting and not being used for long periods of time. This can affect their ability to get a full charge as their "memory" is reduced regardless of what the charge light indicator displays. Even taking a battery that has been sitting for a long period and charging it to full charge, might only have limited power. Some of these can be returned to almost full capacity, but it takes multiple, repeated, alternating, charges and power deletions to rebuild the memory. In many cases, however, the battery just needs to be replaced.
For the best results, I recommend you to use Canon rechargeable (NiMH) batteries. Rechargeable batteries provide the best performance and are the most economical choice. Else...... AA alkaline batteries such as those from Energizer or Duracell will provide the best performance for non-rechargeable batteries.
You're using the wrong batteries. You need to purchase lithium batteries. They are quality batteries for high powered, battery operated electronics. Personally, I have a battery charger and use rechargable duracell batteries. (HR6/ DC1500/ NiMH/ 1,2V) Gives you approximately 16 hrs before having to recharge.
i suggest replacing a fresh battery will most likely solve your prob, overtime rechargeable battery can drain easily, try changing with a new battery and see if it does work well, there might be insufficient current, thats why it tends to drop of voltage easily upon using,
there is a specified lifetime for rechargeable battery, depends on your usage and charging method, theymaybe fully charged but sometimes wont give you enough power to drive
The problem is the batteries that you're currently using. They just don't have the power needed to run the camera, sometimes even if brand new and just out of the package. Digital cameras are power hungry, especially those that run on only two AA batteries (like your A560). You need to use the best batteries that are available. I recommend NiMH rechargeable batteries, power rated at 2,500 mah or better. They are 3 to 4 times more powerful than regular batteries. They will also quickly save you money as they can be used over and over again for years.
