    Yeah. Exact same problem. Nobody has a home brew fix?

I have the same problem. I've had the camera for about two years and it's always been that way, so it's not an isolated problem. I don't know if it can be fixed though. steve

I have verified my Canon A95 drains batteries by doing an amperage test. Starting with new batteries I install them in the camera and then layer a thin copper wire then piece of paper then copper wire and...

I assume you're using a CF type 1 card. Some CF cards have been known to drain batteries. As an experiment, remove the card and see if the batteries drain at the same rate.

Canon PowerShot A95 will no longer power up

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't power on. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try. Pay particular attention to the small contact switches on the battery and flash card doors. Also inspect the battery contact prongs to make sure they haven't been bent to the point that they're not springing the battery to make contact with the battery door.

Can't take pictures

If the lens is buzzing and followed by an "E18" or "lens error" message then the lens will need to be replaced. If no message appears you may just have flat batteries or even a single bad battery can cause this. Try getting some good quality disposable batteries specifically for digital cameras. If all is well with the new ones, invest in a new set of rechargeables.

''err 99'' code appearing fairly often recently on Canon Rebel XT

To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

Need a downloadable copy of owners manuals.

Initially the green light Must come on, but begins to flash within 5 mins or so,..this indicates that the Battery has been drained enough to start the charging process,..Most of the time we plugg in Battery with alittle bit of charge (even if it already has insufficient pwr to operate the device or tool) The charger's (diodes) will detect this resistance (back charges) and will maintain Green LED lites as long as 15min, until the battery is drained to its minimal charge capacity, before it begins to pump in a pulse of 0.6 amps/sec of charge in the battery. NiCad battery have (what is called) Memory. It is an amount of nuetralized charge in the cell when you force feed (charge) in a NiCad, that will begin to occupy (molecularly) your Nicad cell if you dont drain your battery completely between charges. In short- Drain your bat COMPLETELY before charging or it will accumulate Nuetral charges until your NiCad fails to hold full charge capacity..This will definely keep the green lite ON- when your NiCad is 90% occupied by this Nuetral charge and there's no space in your Nicad to dump charge into anymore...But you can still rescue your Battery if you so choose- buts thats another story.
