Question about Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera
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.

I cant take credit for this, I found it elsewhere on another forum, but it sure worked for me. CLEAN the contacts in the battery compartment thoroughly with alcohol, use a *small* bit of WD40 on a ear cleaning bud after that. Do the same to the metal (+ and - contacts) on the battery itself. Things should work fine after that. Did for me.

I have the same problem, and I have used different brands, rechargeable non-rechargeable, the new ready to use re-chargeables. Still the low battery light comes on within a shot or 2.
