Re: battery display low indication and switch off even...

Dear Camera User, I am by no means a professional when it comes to these matters. However, I do have the same camera as you, and currently have the same problem. Other users with the same camera have also apparently had the same problem as us. I have not gotten a chance to try this yet, but I read that if you keep the camera on the video feature for a while, and maybe even try recording some video, the camera will finally power up properly and not have to shut down all the time. According to the user who suggested this, his camera worked ever since that incident. So it is very possible that this may be the solution, or at least, one of them. Good luck to you...and to me (I have yet to try it).

Canon PowerShot A95 is using up batteries too fast

My experience seems to show that it's not your camera as much as it is that batteries (AA type cells) don't have the "juice" they used to have. Try using the Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA batteries. I've turned many of my customers on to them, and they swear by them!

My Canon Powershot A2000 displays a low battery even when I've just replaced with new. I've replaced several times, each time with two identical batteries, each time from a different package. I may be able...

For the best results, I recommend you to use Canon rechargeable (NiMH) batteries. Rechargeable batteries provide the best performance and are the most economical choice.
AA alkaline batteries such as those from Energizer or Duracell will provide the best performance for non-rechargeable batteries.

Mentioned on my blog that the last paragraph of the advisory states:

""PowerShot A530 and A540 digital cameras affected by this phenomenon will be repaired free of charge, regardless of warranty status. Accordingly, if the opening/closing spring on the inside of the battery cover of your PowerShot A530 or A540 digital camera sticks out, please do not use the camera. Instead, please contact a Canon call center (1-800-OK-CANON) at your earliest convenience."

But also mentioned that if they don't help, a temporary fix is to insulate the spring from the battery contact plate. Merely place a small piece of tape between the portion of spring that's sticking out and the metal battery contact plate.

Battery Problem

The batteries u r using for your camera are of very low rating or low ampere output, you should use atleast 2100mAhr rating batteries and you will be very much satisfied with the performance.
