Batteries replaced but still says change them

Battery was running low on my camera, so I changed the AA batteries and also the lithium CR1220 battery. The screen still says change batteries and keeps shutting off as though there is no power.

    Samsung S630: Put two new AA batteries in and two days later it shows that the batteries are low with little to no use in the two prior days. Will research Samsung site to see if there's a way to upgrade the hardware or have the company address the issue themselves.

    Hello

    I like my dmc lz5 very much, durable, trustable...



    First time same problem here,

    New batteries, they work fine in flashlight,even for longer time, but dmc-lz5 displays replace batteries.

    After dismounting back panel, I have found inside a button-battery 1 mm thick 6mm diameter,

    it turned out it is a special, rechargeable one, it gives 3 v, but it
    can use a charging voltage as low as 2.8 v.Earlyer I tought this was
    the problem- because I have used the camera with rechargeable
    batteries, (those give 2x1.2=2.4 v , less than 2.8 ).I bought
    alkalines, giving 2x 1.5 = 3 v , but after about 50 pics taken the
    problem is here again.Now i try to replace the button battery (type
    panasonic ml-614), hoping this is a problem.

    Anyone having some solution or similar case?

    Thank You

Difference between lithium battery and AA size battery for camera


"Lithium" refers to the chemical makeup of the battery. "AA" refers to the size of the battery. There are such things as lithium AA batteries.

If your camera takes AA batteries then lithiums will give you more shots than other types. They will also cost more.

Battery operated George Nelson Ball clock running slow


Probable cause is low battery voltage, maybe the battery was not fresh or was of too low quality. For such a nice clock, extra cost in getting an Energizer Ultimate Lithium or VARTA Professional Lithium cell is justified and the AA sized battery with 3000 mAh will work for many years. Otherwise, use Alkaline batteries and don't forget to check the expiration date always. Check http://www.batteryshowdown.com/results-lo.html to get some ideas on what to buy and what to expect.

It will say low battery or will not turn on


If your camera uses AA batteries, you should note the battery type your camera support, and many cameras only support Lithium AA batteries or Alkaline AA batteries, else there maybe note enough voltage, so the camera will note low power. If your camera uses special camera batteries, and maybe you should replace it for a new one.

I have a Canon Power Shot A470. I have replaced the batteries many times, always with brand new ones, and it still keeps telling me to change the batteries. What is the problem with it? How do I fix it?


Yes, but what batteries have you been changing? If the AA's, those aren't the clock battery. Open the battery door, and notice the tiny door inside labeled "CR1220". Pry that door open with your fingernail, and take the enclosed CR1220 battery down to your local drugstore to purchase a replacement clock battery. Drugstores seem to be cheaper for this battery (~$3) than retail outlets like W-Mart (~$7).

My wife is complaining that every time she turns off/on the camera she has to reset the data/time. I understand that when the batteries are changed the settings may be lost, but not simply when the camera...


Sounds to me that there may be another battery inside the camera that is going bad.


Issue: Everytime I power on the camera the Date / Time needs to be set.
Solution: Replacing the Date Battery for the PowerShot A480.

Replacing the Date Battery. If the Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, the date battery charge is low and the date and time settings have been lost. Please purchase a lithium coin battery (CR1220) and replace it as follows.
Please note that the first date battery may appear to expire relatively quickly after you purchase the camera. This is because it is installed in the camera at the point of manufacture, not when you make the purchase. caution.gifBe particularly careful to keep the date batteries out of the reach of children. Seek medical assistance immediately if a child swallows a battery since corrosive battery fluids can damage the stomach or intestinal walls. 1. Confirm that the camera power is turned off.
2. Open up the battery door / cover and remove the AA Batteries.
3. Remove the date/time battery holder.
4. Grasp the battery and slide it in the direction of the arrow.
a480backupbatt.jpg 5. Insert a new battery with the (+) side facing up.
6. Replace the battery holder and battery cover.
7. When the Date/Time menu appears set the date and time.
note.gif After purchasing the camera and turning on the power for the first time, although the Date/Time menu will appear, you do not need to replace the date battery. If you ever dispose of your camera, first remove the date battery for recycling according to the recycling system of your area.

Every time I turn on my Canon A540 Powershot I get the black date/time screen. The date/time is all zero (the photo properties default to 1 Jan 1980) and I have to either enter the date/time or press...


Inside the battery compartment, right beside the AA batteries, there's a tiny little door labeled CR1220 (see this picture). Pry the door open with your fingernail, remove the little button battery located there, and take this battery down to your local drugstore to buy a replacement camera clock battery. Remember, it's a "CR1220" battery. It should cost only about $4.

Canon A470 The date and time menu keeps popping up every time I switch on the camera despite setting the date and time.


There is another battery next the the AA battery under a little cover marked CR1220. That is the battery size. If that battery is dead, or has never been installed then every time you change the AA batteries the camera will forget the time and date. Try to get one from a specialty store that turns over its inventory quickly and you may find that you will only change this battery every 2 or 3 years.

Batttery icon shows low battery even though new batteries are ins


I am not sure if this will address your problem but it is worth trying.

Make sure the record/playback mode switch is not in an intermediate position. Push it firmly all the way up. Also ensure that the mode button is not between clickstops. Then try to operate the camera

If that does not help, try the following. Take all the batteries out, including the lithium battery which keeps the clock going. Also take the SD memory card out. Leave the camera sit overnight.

Obtain new batteries - conventional alkaline AAs and a lithium type CR1220.

Next day, clean all the contacts for the AA batteries with a cotton-bud and contact cleaner or isopropyl alcohol. Let dry. Then insert the new lithium battery. Next insert the new AAs and try to turn the camera on.

If it works, insert the SD card. If it does not work then there is probably an internal problem and it should be serviced.
