Question about Canon Digital Cameras
See the following advisory for the Canon A530/A540. Pay close attention to the exposed battery door spring in the picture. The A510 has a similar possibility of the spring slipping out from under the plate, thus shorting the batteries. If it did, you can easily fix it by removing the three screws on the plate, and readjusting the plate so that the spring is again underneath the plate where it belongs. Or use a small piece of tape between the plate and spring to prevent it from shorting on the plate.
If the spring is NOT exposed, how old are your NiMH batteries? They really aren't meant to last more than a year or two. Also, Alkaline batteries are just eaten alive by the A510, so don't recommend using them as a benchmark to judge performance.
