How old are your batteries? Overtime and after multiple charges,  rechargeable batteries loose capacity and will ultimately not hold a charge at all. Try a new set of batteries and see if that helps.

Why does my fully charged battery show only a 1/4 power and only alow me 3 pictures before it dies?


How old are your batteries, and are they Canon brand or a cheap eBay type off brand? Most times we see this the batteries are old and won't hold a full charge or are cheap off-brand ones.

Has the camera been exposed to intense moisture or fallen into water. Water damage can drain a battery quickly.

There is a software adjustment to set the battery inhibit voltage, but you will have to take your camera to Canon as it is proprietary software only they have

also check for bent CF pins

Try resetting the camera by removing the battery for 15 mins. Then install the fully charged battery in the camera and go to the menu and set the Date and Time.

Canon Power Shot A1000IS Batteries drain too quickly. Red battery light comes on after only 5 to 10 pics. Batteries are fully charged when put into the camera. What should I do to correct the problem...


Cynth,

This kind of problem could have occurred only when the batteries are old and do not hold charge for a longer r duration. Please replace the batteries with new ones.

When using the flash is takes 4/5 seconds before I can take another picture. The taken photo appears for about 1 second then the screen goes black for 4/5 seconds before I can take another picture


Friend,

You are using a 10 MP camera. Imagine the size of the picture taken. It is massive. And so would the size in megabytes. To save those many MBs is a time consuming affair. that is what takes 4 to 5 seconds. And during that time the camera can do nothing else.

Do not worry. The camera is fine. Just that you have a very good camera and do not realize it.

As regards the photo being visible for a second only, you can change the settings and have the picture on display for a longer duration. That would be fine as while you are viewing the pic, the camera is busy saving the pic file. You would not feel those 4 to 5 seconds at all.

Camera swicthes off when taking a photo


ru sure that u havent hit the power button & also make sure that the batteries are fully charged?
make sure its not cheap batteries or use rechargables sometimes cheap 1s dont have enough power
i use pure engery digital ones but the reg 1s work ok.
the batteries have to b inserted the right way, my mother in laws camera (diff model) didnt work at all w the batteries in the wrong way.
also check that the chip has space.

it does switch off if u wait too long to take a pic it it has an automatic setting: approx 5 mins.

Digital rebel battery drain with flash only


I would suspect the batteries

Ive got an eos Rebel think its just over 4 years old
for the last year its been used every weekend for several hours 300+ pics per weekend between 2 nights I found that recently where one battery would last a night the battery was running out midway through & also taking longer to charge afterwards

2 after market replacements cost me about £10 and things are back to normal

5 years is a pretty good lifespan for a battery so its probably just getting old

Try the following diagnosis steps: -

To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

If the “ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

Try using brand new fully charged rechargeable batteries like NiMH or NiCd. Also try viewing though the computer via USB.
