Problem of rechargable battery

Inspite of recharging rechargeable batteries for more than 6 hours, my digital canon camera indicates 'low battery'. Pl let me know whether the problem is with the batteries (6 months old) or the camera itself.

    I have the same problem. I put the fully charged batteries in and get a change batteries message. Can't shoot anything. I've now gone through two new battery chargers and eight different batteries. I'm pretty sure it's a camera issue. Can anyone advise?

    Mine does the same -- the low battery icon flashes, but it seems to keep working anyway.

The best way to tell if it is a battery problem would be to charge them fully then use the camera and see how long they keep working as compared to what their specs are (probably in your camera info). It is also possible that the charger is at fault, which can be tested by measuring the output of the charger with a meter, or check to make sure the charger is the proper one for those batteries ("quick" chargers may need special batteries, etc.). If your camera can use alkaline batteries of the same type, try new ones and see if it still says "low" -- if so then it could be the camera. Hope this helps. If not, check your camera website and try troubleshooting there.

Low battery warning with brand new batteries


Did the batteries come pre-charged? Most rechargeable batteries do not come charged. If they are not rechargeable batteries could they be shelf-dead? Do other batteries work in the camera?

Low battery indication with new batteries


Make sure you are using rechargable batteries. Normal batteries are not strong enough. Try using either rechargable Lithium Ion batteries, or rechargable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries. These are much stronger and should give you a good battery life.

My Canon Powershot A2000 displays a low battery even when I've just replaced with new. I've replaced several times, each time with two identical batteries, each time from a different package. I may be able...


Hi,
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.

Where is the battery power level indicator on LCD screen so that I can know when to recharge the battery.


The low-battery indicator will appear near the upper-right corner of the display when the battery level drops. If it's not there then the battery level is fine. When it appears, get ready to replace or recharge the battery.

Flashes low battery with only a few shots. Battery is new. Also what brand of rechargable batteries do you suggest?


cameras eat batteries fast. the best cameras have rechargable battery packs.

i'd use energizer or duracell. try to stay away from alkiline rechargables as they wear out fast. try Nickle Medal Hydrate Batteries (NiMH).

Will only work with 1.5V battery output instead of 1.2V


How old are the rechargeables? Also, am assuming you are using NiMH and not the inferior low-power NiCads. Rechargeables NiMH really aren't meant to last more than a year or two, regardless of how often they were recharged. If the batteries are older than a year, suggest trying a new set.

Rechargeable batterie won't work in my Camera.


Not sure what camera you have, but some cameras require a very steady power supply voltage. Also not sure how old your rechargeable batteries are either, but batteries (alkaline and rechargeable decay over time. With the rechargeable ones, the more you use it, the less it can charge to full capacity over time. For example, if your rechargeable battery is supposed to charge up to 1.5V, over a period of a year with constant recharges, you can test with a volt meter and see that it never really goes back up to 1.5V, but more like 1.48V, 1.45V or maybe even 1.4V.

Depending on the camera or other item you use rechargeable batteries on, it can adapt to low voltages with special circuitry inside (but only to a certain limit, when a battery is old, it is old).

You can try buying a new set of rechargeable batteries and use it few times and see if this fixes the issue. If not, your camera may be faulty and just draining the battery (not too likely, but it happens).

Batteries "depleted"


Ok.  So far this has worked for me.  I had exactly the same problem and called Canon service after reading your post.
This is what they said to do, even though it sounds a little hocus-pocus:
• take out the batteries & camera card • clean the battery contacts ON THE CAMERA (those bumpy little things) with an eraser • click the camera on/off button 10 x • click the "take photo" button 10 times • put in newly charged batteries.


Hint:  Remove batteries every night. Never leave batteries in for more than 24 hours.  
So this has now worked for 20 minutes!  There's hope!
