Question about Canon Powershot SD450 / IXUS 55 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon Powershot SD450 batteries don't deliver

I have this camera and my son has a more recent version... but basically the same body. Both of us, after owning the camera for 3 years or so have had issues with the battery holding a charge. Of course, we have purchased new batteries, twice. The ones we have now are: Digipower Rechargeable Battery replacement for Canon NB-4L LI-ion 3.8v 790mAh.

After a short amount of shooting/picture review/upload, the camera says change battery pack. If I take the battery out, rub the contacts on my shirt and reinsert, frequently the batteries continue to work for many more sessions. Needless to say it's quite a bother.

I can't tell if I have a faulty problem with the battery, the battery charger or the camera contacts. (I have cleaned these with a pencil eraser rubed lightly on the contacts)

    I also am experiencing the same problem. I have the original Canon plus 2 off-brand batteries. Camera reports a low-battery; sometimes if I remove it and re-insert it will continue to work for quite awhile. I tried a different charger, but I am getting the same results from the camera. When I put a "dead" battery into the charger, it charges (Green light) in less than 15 minutes, so I really suspect the camera is misreading the battery level; there's probably a lot of charge left. Have not tried testing same batteries in another Canon camera yet.

Our schools Canon PowerShot SD450 memory card has no images or videos on it but the camera says memory full...help.


Make sure that the card is 2GB or smaller, the camera only supports SD not SDHC so it won't recognize a card larger then 2GB. If it's 2GB or smaller format it within the camera and then you should be good to go.

Canon sd450 possible battery problem?


If you have charged the battery many times then after 3 years that could be to 90% your problem.
Firstly try to clean the battery contacts and camera contactswith cleaning alcohol or contact cleaner.
If that does not help, it is a new battery.

I have just removed all ribbons from front pcb as well as the connection from the control panel ribbon under the lcd. Cleaned all ribbon contacts with alcohol & reassembled - now it works.
