I have a Canon Power Shot A470. I have replaced the batteries many times, always with brand new ones, and it still keeps telling me to change the batteries. What is the problem with it? How do I fix it?


Yes, but what batteries have you been changing? If the AA's, those aren't the clock battery. Open the battery door, and notice the tiny door inside labeled "CR1220". Pry that door open with your fingernail, and take the enclosed CR1220 battery down to your local drugstore to purchase a replacement clock battery. Drugstores seem to be cheaper for this battery (~$3) than retail outlets like W-Mart (~$7).

I have a Power Shot Canon A540. Even using alkaline batteries, the camera will not stay on. It states replace batteries. It is not on the recall list I checked. It's serial number is 2922243470. ...


I know you said you check, but you could be having the same problem.
ome Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. It seems that a little hinge spring in the door of the battery compartment can stick out and short the batteries. The end result is very poor battery life, with only a few shots taken before the batteries die. Also the battery door becomes hot.
here is the canon notice

Contact them directly to make sure you are not covered under free warranty.

I have a canon power shot A70 digital camera and I cannot get it to turn on even when inserting new batteries.


I don t have a solution, but I got a similar problem. When I install new batteries, they only last for maybe 10 snaps- snaps ,then the "battery" light comes on and camera shuts off. I ve tried several sets of different batteries so its not a battery problem.

I just purchase the Canon Power shot SX 130. Batteries are new and after a few days the camera batery light is flashing and I can't take any pictures the camera shot down. Please help.


Buy a proper NiMH rechargeable batteries (Sanyo Eneloop for example). Modern cameras will drain alkaline batteries in the matter of hours, not days.

Canon Power shot A530 repeatedly displays "change


First make sure that you are using quality batteries, and not "super heavy duty". If so, some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info.

Canon power shot A75 fully dead, inspite of using fully charged batteries


Things to check first are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Details on what needs to be checked may be seen here. It won't work for every case, but it's worth a try.

Power shot a75 does not turn on.


First, check that the battery terminals are clean and in contact with the batteries. Next, there are two door switches on the A75 that need to close to operate the camera. One is by the flash card door, the other by the battery door. A small piece of plastic on each door activates the switches when the doors are closed. Check to make sure that both of these are indeed being pushed in all the way when the doors are closed. Hope this helps at least one of you peeps.
