Question about Canon PowerShot A300 Digital Camera
MY CAMERA WON'T COME ON. WHEN ON, LOW BATTERY LIGHT FLASHES AND SHOTS DOWN CAMERA. I REPLACED THE BATTERY SEVERAL TIMES, EVEN USED BATTERY RECHARGEABLE FULLY CHARGED AND STILL PROBLEM PERSITS. I TESTED THE BATTERIES IN MY OTHER CAMERA AND THE OTHER CAMERA WORKS FINE.HELP ME!!
If it's a short, not much that you can do other than try to track down the short location with a voltmeter. But I do have doubts that a short is causing this. The A300 is a notoriously power hungry camera. It's the first digital Canon to use two AA batteries. It takes great pictures, but unfortunately Canon didn't spend much time focusing on battery efficiency in getting the new two battery design out the door. As a work-around, try taking pictures by shutting off the display (press the DISP button) and using the optical viewfinder. Also the camera works best with high power rechargeable NiMH batteries rated 2500mah or better. Very inexpensive NiMH batteries are generally weak, and if no rating is shown on the package or battery, should be avoided.
