Question about Canon PowerShot S51S Digital Camera

1 Answer

Says change batteries and I have put new batteries in 3 times. This came on all of the sudden. Also, I noticed that you can review picutres etc, without the camera shutting off and wanting you to change batteries. Seems to only do this in the picture taking mode. Please help. Tbone44

Garmin fr60 footpod


Read this BEFORE you buy a new Garmin footpod because of non-detection issues after replacing batttery.

My battery died and after changing it with a new one I've not been able to detect the footpod with my 910xt until now. I notice that in the cap or lid of the footpod where the battery sits before closing it sits a white piece with contacts for the battery. I had inadvertently taken this out when replacing the battery, which is fine BUT you have to put it back in a certain position. If you look very closely at the cap where the battery sits you will notice there are tiny grooves where the contacts should sit into. As soon as I line these up with the white contact piece, voila! Footpod was immediately detected. Try it if you are having issues after replacing a new battery.

My 97 Olds aurora cuts off while driving. It's done it 3 times in 1 week. It doesn't stall when i start it back it up. I changed my alternator recently and i bought a new battery. Any ideas?


It could be the Ignition Switch. If, when it cuts off, you notice your gages, etc go off, then you are losing ignition power. If not, then maybe I would look at the crankshaft position sensor, etc. This should through some sort of code though.

Motorola, M25, orange-Won't play


Likely not new but worth the try. Had reviewed various other POSTS, and suggestion to take out battery and let sit for a while. Often cures unknown ills. Took out the new battery that did not work, let it sit overnight, put battery in again next morning and it booted up. This was done after, changing three batteries, after taking in/out the SD card (no real reason, but figured why not) and, after a subtle BANG on each of the corners of the unit......

Canon A95 "Change Batteries" problem!


I have this problem as well. I thought it was a problem with my NiMH batteries. So, I bought a volt meter to make sure the batteries worked. I have 8 AA NiMH batteries. I charged them all up and tested them with the volt meter. They were all good to go. However, no matter what I put in the camera one of two things happens:
1. I get the "change batteries" message.
2. I don't get the message, but the next time I check the camera (a few days later), one of them is totally drained.
Something is very wrong and I plan on contacting Canon.

S2 suddenly draining batteries rapidly


I have the same exact problem. I just now read a possible solution: try opening the battery compartment door and then closing it again to "trick" the camera into thinking it just got new batteries. There is definitely something wrong with the way the camera senses dead batteries.
