Hi there.
You may not like this solution, but it's real anyway. Average low-end digital camera life span is approximately 2 years depending on how much you use it. They vary between manufacturer. Low-end cameras ($100. to $200. range) have an approximate 1500 to 3000 shutter clicks which equates to about 1 cent per photo. Granted, more expensive cameras equal more shutter clicks and thusly and lower cost ratio. So, I'm sorry to say that you have just about hit the life span of your device. It would cost more to fix than to purchase a new one.
I hope this helps you, but no one here can suggest a "fix" for it. Thanks for coming to FixYa, and feel free to rate my solution.

I have a Sanyo digital camera but the batteries only last about 15 photos and then I get the battery low message or it switches off. If I take the batteries out and insert them again and get another 4/5...


My best guess is that you need new batteries. Even rechargeable batteries need to be replaced sometimes. I am pretty sure if you purchase new batteries for this, you will be just fine!

Hope this helps!

Check the voltage provided by the cells. Each cell should be above 3 volts. Make sure they are installed with correct polarity and the contacts are making. Brand new cells CAN be bad and some holders may not contact properly.

Simon 3 "System Low Battery" after 3 years use


I install these panels.  For the low battery message to clear you need to power the system down completely.  To do this you need to unplug the battery and also unplug the transformer plugged into an electrical outlet.  When you power the system back up, you need to first plug in the battery leads.  Then the transformer.

Simon 3: A remote window sensor downstairs creates a constant Low Battery beep/message.


it should be a 6 volt, 1.3 amp hour battery. you can get them at batteries plus. best bet is to take the old one with you to the store to ensure that it fits.

Low battery message, sent back to canon to repair and still having same problem..can i send back yet again. where to? or can i get a new one.


I had this same problem. I tried this procedure and it seems to have worked so far:

1. run a set of batteries down in the camera so the voltage is so low the camera won't even power up fully.

2. put some cheap (non-alkaline) batteries in and run these down.

3. get some hi-power alkaline batteries (the kind that are marketed as 'photo' batteries or similar, they do cost more) and put these in. Hopefully the 'low battery' indicator has now been reset.

This worked for me.

I just had the same problem. Could be dirty terminals. I took the battery out, cleaned the terminals on the battery and phone with a pencil eraser, put the battery back in and it's working fine. (Says fully charged, where just a few minutes ago it said low battery).
