SOURCE: battery drain

some models of camera do this, it's like a standby mode.

you can bypass this by blocking the terminals with a piece of paper or plastic, which you remove when you want to use, this should protect the battery life, however you will have to remove the paper/plastic when you wish to use the camera.

SOURCE: battery drains quickly

"It shouldn't do that." But you already know that. Even with everything "on" in the camera it still shouldn't do that.

I think you need to try a) alkaline batteries and b) new NiMh batteries. If it still persists then your camera has a deeper problem and needs to be sent in for repair.

SOURCE: Batteries draining

Check that you DO have the correct batteries for YOUR camera in power out put .
If you have according to the manual then contact the Canon as this could be a fault.

SOURCE: Batteries keep dying

Camera was still under warranty & I sent it back to Canon after calling them. Service was incredibly fast. They found the optical assembly inoperative & focus not operating properly. They also sent battery recommendations. I think I am going to try the rechargables. They recommend: Panasonic Alkaline Gold, Duracell Ultra, and Canon Ni-MH. Will let you know how it works out. Thanks for the help as well.

What type of batteries are you using, the Lithium ones will last longer and recommended for the unit.
If they are still draining then the unit has a faulty conection somewhere and will need to be sent back to be serviced - common cause for this is been dropped

I have an Airworks ceiling fan/light with remote. Worked fine for years. Now battery is being drained very quick.. in a matter of a couple of weeks! Replaced battery but it drains in a couple of weeks


Stuck button, spill on remote causing power drain or most probably you got a batch of weak batteries. Try a different brand and make sure they are alakaline.

I have to change batteries in my Canon A710 after 5 - 10 pictures, what can be the broblem and how to fix it?


Buy the best quality batteries, but NOT the highest mAhr ones. They are designed for long usage for low drain applicaions but may not be able to deliver the high currents required by digital cameras. 2100-2400mAh is said to be best. Also, use a good quality charger that can discharge and slow recharge to reconditionbatteries. I recently bought a Maha charger and some Imedion batteries. Now my camera works as it should. (previously it lost the auto-focus after a few shots). A bit expensive but cheaper than a new camera!

I will drive for about a mile with full power with little power lose.then all of a sudden,ill have extreme power loss . within 1quarter mile ill lose all power.something drains the batteries


Batteries do not provide a linear output during usage, but having it die out within a mile or so tells me that one of the battery cells is becoming weaker than the rest. If you're a handyman, you can save yourself a ton of money by replacing only the batteries (try interstate batteries) instead of going to the scooter store and purchasing the batteries and case.

My canon A710 says it needs batteries no matter


My A710 did exactly the same thing. Spoke to Canon support. According to them you have to use Canon 2500 mah batteries (quite expensive - need a different charger as well). I've just bought new rechargable batteries from Sanyo (Eneloop pre-charged). And it solved my problem. I've also changed the batteries quite a few times and it never worked. But this did solve the problem for me.

Canon A710IS Battery Drains Quickly

Battery life


The rechargeables are only meant to last a couple years maximum (pretty good that you got three out of them). Also rechargeable NiMH's have approximately 5 times the power of standard alkaline batteries. Alkaline batteries should only be used in emergencies in digital cameras as they will only last for a short while before they are drained (as you've discovered).

The obvious solution is that it's time to consider purchasing a new set of rechargeable NiMH batteries. Look on the package for a power rating of at least 2,500 mah. Avoid batteries that do not list the power rating as they are generally inferior batteries.

Kodak Z1085 IS - drains battery even when camera is not on


the camera takes 1.5v to operate it
anything less the camera will shut down
recharge batteries are only 1.4v so at full
recharge it won't last long
The best batteries are litheum that have the right
volts and capacity to keep the camera going.
try turning or the camera stablizer setting...
might save your battery power.

Canon A710


I have found that the camera is sensitive to battery power in that a slight fall off in voltage causes the problem. I came across a site, which I have not been able to find again, where it was stated that the contacts on the lid do not sit with sufficient pressure on the batteries to get a good contact. If you put the batteries in and look across the top, in my case, the battery +ve terminal is sitting slightly lower than the –ve battery terminal. To solve it, put a small piece of very thin plastic under the +ve contact on the lid so that it sits more proud. This has certainly improved my problem to the extent that this week the plastic fell out and the problem returned. Also I always use high capacity re-chargeable batteries. Hope this helps.
