Canon Powershop A430 Digital Camera wont work with new batteries. I tried switching and used both alkaline and some regular ones but it keeps saying the batteries are low. How can I fix this?

If the camera has a lens that extends when you power-on, it may have failed to park completely when power went off, due to the weak battery.

Gently press on the front of the lens barrel to attempt to seat the lens.
Then (with a good battery) turn-on the camera.

If you are currently using the NiMH AA rechargeable batteries, I would suggest you try standard Alkaline AA batteries. They have a bit more voltage than the NiMH and it might make a difference in this case.

If that does not work, you should phone Canon Service and see if they have any suggestions.
I am sure they have encountered this problem before.

Hope this helps,

I`ve bought a 4GB memory SDHC memory card to my Canon powershot A 430 camera, and when i put it in my camera - it says memory card error. I tried to unlock it by the small button, but didin`t help. What...

The Canon A430 uses MMC and SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Camera turns on and off immediately

Try using batterys with a higher amp hour rating, also try cleaning the battery contacts inside the compartment with a cotton cue tip dampened with 100% alcohol (tape head cleaning fluid). If it is cold where you live, try warming up batterys in your hands or pocket for 10-15 minutes first.

Canon camera won't hold it's charge


I think I found the soultion.
So when the camera shows that changing battery is needed take those batteries to a discman or hand lamp or any other tool to exhaust the batteries completely. It's necessary becasue the camera can't do it and some charge can remain in the batteries and recharging them in this state leads the batteries to go wrong. So charge them after a total exhaust!
This worked for me.
