Well is it the correct battery? Assuming it is and should be if supplied with camera- How old is it? Batteries do lose their capacity to hold full voltage as they age - so perchance it is not delivering enough. This is especially applicable to re-chargable batteries. A New battery then

Might be the camera's battery terminals, not the battery itself. Take a qtip and some isopropyl aclohol and clean the terminals in the battery well of camera.

My canon powershot a495 has a problem. it always


Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in today's power hungry digital cameras. Some batteries may also have reached their shelf life at the store, and though brand-new right out of the package may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. The one's that came with your camera are just to show you that the camera works, but as you've discovered, they'll only last for a few pictures. Digital cameras that use AA's for the most part should only be used with modern rechargeable batteries. If you read the camera's instruction manual concerning batteries, you should see the same recommendation.
Modern rechargeable batteries have over 5 times the power density of alkaline batteries (that's right, they last up to 5 times longer than an alkaline battery. And you can recharge them over and over!). Keep in mind rechargeable batteries will save you much money in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may be angry with yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Compatible Battery error message


Try clean contacts of camera for battery and contacts of the battery also, specially the middle one - it is for communication between camera and circuit inside the battery. If the problem persists, try use another battery in your camera, or your battery in other compatible product - you determine this way if the problem is inside the battery (I hope, it is cheaper) or inside the camera.

may be the bats are not compatible to that cam... check the voltage specification of the battery from the manual and then insert the battery suitable to it..................
just try inserting ur old bats once if the same problem persists then may be the display is out just try changing display..............
the best thing i suggest is you take it to technician ....

Battery problem (DSC W70)


The battery has a third terminal which feeds back data to the cameras microprocessor, if the camera gets dropped the battery block can get damaged and this signal does not get to the CPU. The camera thinks that you're attempting to use a generic battery and displays a warning, then shuts off. Check to see if the 3.0 volt DC voltage is present on the center pin of the battery connector, if it's there, you can safely assume the data is there as well. I wish you luck!
