New batteries only give me one or two stots and then the camera says change the batteries. Could this be a camera fault. I can't go on returningf batteries to the store. Please help


The Canon PowerShot A400 is quite an old camera now and whilst it may not be the camera it could be another part of the kit.

If you are using rechargeable AA batteries, which should give the best performance, it could be the battery charger has lost it's ability to charge the batteries.

If you are using standard AA Alkaline batteries, check the battery terminals in the camera, as it could be they are dirty and need to be cleaned.

Hope this helps

Don't worry, your lost photos that are very precious can be recovered with ease. I would like to introduce you a very good data Recovery software, called tenorshare data recovery which can be used to recover images from SD card and from other storage devices. This software is an assortment of data recovery components designed for recovering deleted / lost files and folders, photos, RAW images, music & video files from crashed, re-partitioned, accidentally formatted partitions & drives.

You can get it from:

I want best battery for canon power shotA400

You too? :) Great little camera - but woefully inadequate power-sourcing.

My PowerShot A400 now only runs on 2x Energizer 'Ultimate Lithium'
batteries at $12 a pair... and last no longer than three weeks or about 50 images.

Won't be buying one of these again. I love the camera - but changing the batteries every few days is just way too expensive. Poor design.

It is difficult to repair the screen yourself, even if you can get the part. You need a repair manual to get into it. They are built like a puzzle.

Fuji fine pix A400 zoom error

the camera may not be dropped but the lens may have initiated incrrectly, like it was turned on inside the case that the something prevented the lens to fully mount (telescope out) to default capture position.

it is repairable with Fuji Techs, but if the cost of the repair is worth 3/4 to the original price when you got the unit and is out of its warranty, then it will be best to get it replaced, and you may use this camera for harsh environments, like outdoor trekking or a helmet cam perhaps, it just a personal idea.

Digital camera repair

As far as deleting images this can be done also by formatting the memory card, but definitely upload your images to your computer first because formatting does delete all the images on your memory card. The zoom function problem on the other hand will most likely have to be looked at by an authorized service technician such as bringing it to a Geek Squad® precinct at a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out for service. I hope this helps!
