Hi,

Initially, I would suggest replacing/charging the batteries. This is to eliminate the possibility that is a battery/charging issue. Additionally, pls try to verify that the battery contacts both on the Sony and the batteries themselves are clean. You may need to scrape them off to assure positive contact. Further on the camera's battery terminals, you may need to slightly bend them (or stretch if spring type) to provide more pressure in the contacts (this is of course if the design will allow you to).

Should the above be not corrective, then in most likelihood, it is an internal electronic error.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Conon powershot a470 i cant find in the manual where the battery life is displayed? is it on the screen? do u have 2 change setting 2 find it? or does this model not display it on the screen?


Your a470 has a "low battery" flashing icon that will appear in the upper right hand corner of your lcd display when the battery is getting low. It doesn't appear to have a constant battery display. The manual recommends when you see the flashing icon... change the battery as soon as possible.

Showing low battery


I had similar problem with my Minolta camera. There is no way to fight with them. DO NOT DEAL WITH SONY ANYMORE, my best answer. It looks like Sony has special position on support own products. We have to start consumer's protection company against of SONY. Personally, I used to sped more then $10,000 to by Sony's staff, if it works - it works, otherwise you are in trouble if you do not have extended warranty. NEVER BUY SONY!

Low Batterie Sign


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.

The gray strips usually mean the camera has dirt video heads - if it hasn't been dropped. Get a head-cleaning tape from Radio Shack or Best Buy, and run it a few times. If that doesn't do it, it'll have to be cleaned by a repair shop. Off brand tapes sometimes can cause this.

Battery


The new battery may not be an original Sony infolithium type which has internal and interactive circuits. These infolithium types constantly informs you about the battery condition.The only way is to try another battery. Sivaram.V
