Even New Batteries Wont Work. Camera Shuts Down Immediately

I have a canon digital camera - dont remember the make of it - but every time i put in a new battery it shuts down and says that I need to change the batteries. It used to work fine then started not staying on as long with each new battery & now it wont stay on for even long enough to take one picture without shutting itself down. What can I do?

Clean front and back + - terminals in camera careful with fine emery paper. Also, MAKE sure batteries are not loose if they are they will not make the connection. Fine jeweler screwdriver will pick them out enough.VERY CAREFUL.I truly think this is it.regards Billy

SOURCE: Canon A95 "Change Batteries" problem!

Yes, my A95 in 3 years old and it suddenly started doing the same thing. The strange thing is that if you switch to picture review mode (instead of taking a picture) the batteries appear to last for ages... even though it's the LCD that's supposed to consume the most energy! If the battery level sensor didn't switch the camera off I think it would be fine.

SOURCE: Wont stay on

had the very same problem. Returned it to CANON through the store I purchased it from. CANON said it was a problem with the shutter circuit and the cost to repair was going to be around $200.00!! I was and am not impressed. CANON would not deal with me direct unless I ship the camera direct to them. The retailer told me that I shouldn't pay to fix it and get a new camera. The camera cost me $600.00 and almost to the day the warranty expired, the batteries started draining! I will get a new camera and it won't be a CANON AND I will also return the camera direct to CANON telling them to fix it at no charge or replace. That way, at least, I'll have something I can sell.

You're using the wrong batteries. You need to purchase lithium batteries. They are quality batteries for high powered, battery operated electronics. Personally, I have a battery charger and use rechargable duracell batteries. (HR6/ DC1500/ NiMH/ 1,2V) Gives you approximately 16 hrs before having to recharge.

Lens error, restart camera camera shuts off


Try one of these two fixes, if they dont work for you follow the link below for further troubleshooting.

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html


Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
Fix #2: If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. Error E30 (for older Canon's) means that you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the SD card and turn it on one last time

Camera shows batteries need replacing after putting in fresh ones


Try cleaning the battery contacts inside the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. If the sticky coke got inside the camera, it will only get worse as the phosphoric acid does more damage.

New batteries are not accepted


put batteries in very carefully - not bouncing them in. If you get the 'change the batteries message' then open the battery cover turn the camera a little gently to reposition the batteries and hopefully it should go away. Test your charger too ... is it charging? is it the same thing with non-rechargeable batteries?remember Batteries don't work well when cold this could cause the camera to shutdown. It might also be that the auto shut down setting is too short unless it is shutting down while you are actually shooting.make sure you are using the correct battery type and match.clean the contacts in the battery compactment.hope this helps

Brand new batteries and its tellin me to change them!


please check if the batteries u used before have leaked any oil inside the camera. this damages the metal strip that shorts and two batteries. if there is no damage then tat portion s safe.
the small battery inside battery compartment is for camera date. dont disturb it.
after changing new batteries tha camera works for few time and then shuts down means your camera CCD s consuming lot of power. use a camera adapter to confirm that the camera works in normal power atleast.
even after this. camera shuts off itself. take it to service centre soon.
