Powershot SX100 low battery symbol with new batteries

Hi. My canon powershot SX100 keeps flashing the low battery symbol even though the batteries are brand new. It takes a few photos then turns itself off. I have replaced batteries several times and have not done any damage that I am aware of to the battery connection area. This problem just started to occur out of the blue. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hi!
If you're sure that the batteries are full, then the power board has to be changed. It's the first board under back cover, with the buttons on the other side of it. Contact your local Canon service center. If they ask very much, you can contact me toms.safranovs@gmail.com and I can give you a price - I have access to new Canon parts.

My camera seems to be drawing energy from the batteries even when it is off because when I put brand new betteries in, within 72 hours they appear dead. I have the Canon SX10 IS. The camera is 10 months...


I have had the same issue. However, it is not draining the batteries, it is telling you the batteries are low even though they are not.
Sorry I don't have an answer though. I have checked batteries after the camera told me they were low/unusable and found them to be fine.

I have a Canon Powershot A590IS which keeps giving me a low battery symbol and finally fails with the message to replace batteries even though batteries are newly installed.


Wrong batteries. We were not told to install lithium ion or nickel batteries. Will replace today and hope it is the solution. Thanks

Problems with the battery and the flash on my canon powershot A530


Hi, On another brand/model of a digicam, a similar problem was fixed by cleaning the battery terminals/contacts. The ends of the terminals that pushes on the battery were partially corroded hence the batteries were not getting full contact. They were cleaned by scraping off the corrosion and applying a strong solvent using cotton buds. Further, they were bend a little to add more pressure to the batteries. If the above does not work, it is possible that the flash charging circuitry is defective and drawing much power than it should normally be. Try operating the digicam with the flash off. If this likewise is a "no joy", perhaps your camera would need the services of a qualified professional. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
