You must be using battery available at the store having the handling capacity of 250 to 300 ma what you need to use is a rechargeble battery with a capacity of 2100 and above this should definately solve your problem

Any time I try to turn my camera on it always tells me to "change the batteries" even when the batteries are brand new.


Have you tried charging the brand new batteries? Often batteries are shipped with little or no charge in them, and need a full charge before use.

When the camera is powered on it says "change batteries" although i would've just put in new ones.


maybe the one you installed is not matched on your camera, means if it is alkali battery recommend by the manufacturer then use alkali battery. also set the menu you need to tell camera that you installed new battery.

My Fuji Finepix S5800 tells me my brand new batteries are flat.


It sounds like you have bad batteries. I have had rechargeables that have suddenly done the same thing. I have learned that buying really cheap ones doesn't work out. If you buy a good branded set, I think you will find that they are much better. :)

CAMERA WON'T LET US TAKE A PICTURE


Make sure you are using either NiMH rechargabeles or quality name brand alkalines to get rid of the change battery message. As for the balck screen, it is likely that the shutter is jammed closed and the camera needs to be cleaned / serviced.

The camera keeps telling me that my battery is low even when I just put some brand new ones in it. How can i fix this?


try the power connector of your battery charger to see if the cam will come on if you have one, if not; heaven if the battery are new some time they need to be charge for at least 12 hour before use...
hope that help..

Hi I have just put brand new batteries in my canon powershot A560 and having taken approx 4 or 5 photos it is now telling me that my batteries need changing. The low battery symbol is also on alot of the...


Make sure that you use the correct type of batteries some cameras prefer Alkaline or Zinc Carbon both at v1.5 some only can take 3 rechargeable Nickel Cadmium (Nicad) Cells at 1.3V (3x1.5v= 3.9V) or one Lithium Ion at 3.6V

Be careful if you put a 1.3V NiCad Rechargeable in a camera that was designed for 1.5 Alkaline it can damage the camera and you may experience similar problems to that you have now.

Always check that you are using the recommended batteries, this is why most manufactures supply there own Lithium Ion 3.6V rechargeable K type cells to avoid this type of problem.

When I put brand new batteries, it says "Change Batteries"


Use a Q-tip with alcohol to clean all the batter contacts (battery cover and inside the battery compartment), and a small hook into the compartment to pull up the contacts a little bit up. The idea is to make the batteries connect properly.
Use NiMh rechargeable batteries or Alkaline batteries, don’t use other Dry batteries, which are not designed for digital camera.
