Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in a digital camera. Some may also have reached their shelf life, and though right out of the package may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras that use AA's for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. If you read the camera's instruction manual concerning batteries, you may see the same recommendation. Keep in mind rechargeable NiMH batteries will save you 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.

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.

My Canon Powershot A430 will not accept new batteries. I have tried rechargable & disposable batteries. They are all directly out of the pack & the charger & the 'Low battery' icon just doesn't...


cudgegong said in another forum:

To resolve the annoying "change the batteries" problem. Goto menu, choose yellow menu, select
file No. reset to ON. Turn camera off and back on.

Voila fixed.

Canon Powershot A430 - can i charge batteries through AC


The A430 is a camera, not a battery charger. If you want to use rechargeable batteries then you must use a separate charger. Battery chargers should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Canon camera won't hold it's charge


Hello!

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.

Peace!

Powershot A430 canon camera battery problem


Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may have reached their shelf life, and though brand new may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Retailers sell these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks 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 slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Batteries discharge in 5 shots


I don't have a solution but I have exactly the same problem. Initially the camera would last for hundreds of shots and now it goes flat almost instantly. I suspect there is a fault with the camera battery indicator.
