Question about Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera
I take one picture and my change battery message comes on, not allowing me to take anymore pictures. I bought new batteries thinking my old ones weren't charging anymore. I get the same message with the new batteries. Any ideas?
Clean the battery contachs- use a pencil eraser to get at those in the base of the chamber. Then try. Some timer the cap that closes the battery chamber is no longer making tight contact- keep it pressed in with a finger when taking shots. If all this is to no avail get onto Canon Technical Support.

I had the same problem - I think the battery was not being held in far enough by the battery cover, this cured my particular problem yours may be the same. Try a thin piece of card (less than 0.5mm thick) about 5.0 mm wide folded in a U shape over the top of the battery. This will 'push' the battery in just a little further. If the battery cover is a little tight when you try to close it your card is too thick!
