Question about Canon PowerShot S100 Digital Camera
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

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.
