I have a Canon PowerShot A530 camera which is around 4 years old. till recently it was working great but from last 3 months, it is giving false indication of low batteries and shuts down. Even after full...

if you are using this camera for 4 yrs with the same lithium battery then you might need to try a new battery
any lithium battery cell's capacity diminishes after long use. it reduces the cell's ability to deliver current. the older batteries do not charge as much as new one.
when you charge your battery it irreversibly loses approximately 20% capacity per year.
hope this help

I own a Fugifilm digital camera that is frozen

It swounds like the system battery may need replacing.

This is separate from the usual batteries that you change and charge up. look on the base of the camera to find a round disk with a groove in it. Inside is a button battery CR2032 or similar. This is the battery that controls all the setting you have set for brightness contrast number continuity etc etc. replace this noting the way it came out + up or down and i think your problem may be solved for abot $4.00

please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

on rechargeable batteries, check the mAh on the side, you would need to be about 2300 or more. also the shelf life on some rechargeables may be less than desireable... try lithium digital

Digital rebel battery drain with flash only

I would suspect the batteries

Ive got an eos Rebel think its just over 4 years old
for the last year its been used every weekend for several hours 300+ pics per weekend between 2 nights I found that recently where one battery would last a night the battery was running out midway through & also taking longer to charge afterwards

2 after market replacements cost me about £10 and things are back to normal

5 years is a pretty good lifespan for a battery so its probably just getting old

Camera doesn't turn on or do anything

I had a similar problem. Mt battery was dead but showed a charge when I put it in the camera. See if you can borrow a battery from another owner or camera shop and try it.
