The flashing low battery symbol is the way Canon film cameras showed that the camera has had an error and has stopped functioning. It can have multiple causes - but for a quick check remove the lens, turn off the camera and then turn it back on - see if the symbol stops flashing. A problem with the lens can also cause this problem (usually a failure of the aperture unit)

Short battery life


After about a year of use/charging and recharging the batteries typically need replaced with OEM battery. some of the knock off brands dont work well, so buy canon from a retailer like BH. If it is a new battery, set the auto shut off to one minute and the LCD review to 2 seconds to preserve power.

Low battery indicator, even after a new battery


You probably have a dead cell in your replacement battery. Camera batteries have a limited number of charge cycles, and this is not a rare issue with "aged" batteries. Also, when you get a new battery, buy a genuine Canon replacement and not one of the el-cheapo Chinese copies available online. In camera batteries, you really do get the quality and performance you pay for!

Low battery warning


What type of batteries did you buy?

For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.
