SOURCE: Low Battery

Could be a few things. 
1) What kind of batteries are you using? Try NiMH batteries, not alkaline. 
2) If that doesn't work - the best batteries are lithium rechargeable. 
3) If THAT doesn't work - you may have a bad battery sensor, in which case you'll need to bring it to the nearest camera repair shop and have them replace it for you - it's not a huge deal, but it's better than having to switch off the camera for an hour or so, take a few pix, than switch it on again, and so on.

SOURCE: battery doesn't hold a charge

Hello krad,

I have seen this issue in quite a lot of cameras and the battery or charger are not the issue here. A software update will fix this issue 9 out of 10 times. Connect your camera to the PC and then run this exe file

SOURCE: Replace battery sign in New canon A590si camera.

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.

I put a sdcard in the mp3 player & it still won't hold a charge or save pictures that I take, why?

If you charge the MP3 player using the USB cable and the battery will not charge up then the battery is worn out and needs replacing.

Battery life nikon coolpix s3000

If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
