Question about Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera
I have a cannon a570 IS purchased less than a year ago. worked great for 6 months. now no batteries work - any brand/ new/ rechargeable...no change - get battery low message all the time - lets me take 1 picture and then i need to replace!
i see on the cnet message boards that others have the same problem...any advice?Ditto for me. After only about five months, I went through two battery chargers, numerous batteries, and a couple of chats with Canon tech support who suggested pulling out the batteries and the time battery, waiting 20 minutes, then putting it all back together (with fresh batteries) so it can reset itself, all to no avail. I also know someone else who has the same problem after only five months.
Of course... I never filled out the warranty card, nor do I have my original receipt.
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Lets try a simple check/fix; clean the battery terminals of the camera. It may even be necessary to scrape them to expose fresh metal. This is in consideration of possible surface corrosion/oxidation of the camera's battery contacts. In some other instances, it may even be necessary to stretch or slightly bend these terminals to ensure that they provide positive if not more contact pressure.
Pls post back result(s). Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Check and clean the battery contacts.

The issue is possibly the mainboard in the camera draining too much power, that will need the help of a professional camera repairer.
