Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
I have 4 new Energizer AA batteries in my Canon PowerShot A70. We have tested them and they are at full charge. The camera turns on, flashes the low battery symbol and then within a minute or two shuts down. I can sometimes shoot one or two pictures but this immediately causes it to shut down. 1. I have cleaned the battery terminals with Q-tips and rubbing alcohol. No help! 2. I have re-set the camera as per the manual instructions. No help! Can anyone out there help with this problem??? Thank you.
I have the same problem on the same cammera. I sent it to canon and they say they will fix it for free. I have the same problem on a canon a530 and sent it to them also. My wife had droped that one and put a dent in the metal around the lense worked fine but they said they must fix it along with the battery problem at a cost of $108. Give them a call 1800 652 2666.

Maybe reflash the firmware? Check Canon website for firmware update and instructions.
