"Battery Empty" sign with camera shut off

My camera has suddenly started to display a "battery empty" screen and subsequently shuts off whenever I take a picture, despite having just placed brand new batteries into the camera. Can you please recommend what I should do to repair the circuit? Thanks!

This problem is usually found when using rechargable batteries as the voltage is only 1.2v rather than 1.5v fir alkaline. See if you can change the battery type in settings. If not consider using either long life non-rechargable lithium batteries or something else that I do but be careful: my camera used two cells so I put a rechargable lithium in one slit and a dummy cell in the other. The charge now lasts 10x as long as NiMh batts. The extra 0.6 volts doesn\'t bother the camera.

I mentioned be careful because if you put in two of these cells BG mistake you will probably damage your camera.

You may try to set in setup the kind of batteries you are using. Many digital cameras allow you to set the kind of batteries being used. Whether or not this will solve the problem, is yet to be seen.

My camera stops working but the battery showed full.


Those are the symptoms of a battery that has been charged many times or has been allowed to completely discharge once or twice. Try some new ones.

Compatible Battery problem


Try clean contacts of the battery. If problem persists, note what is on the LCD when it turns off. Only symbol of an empty battery, or is there any text? If there is written "For InfoLithium/compatible battery only", it does not mean that the camera thinks the battery is empty, but that the battery do not communicate with the camera. If other batteries are OK, you should replace the bad one.

Lens error, restart camera.


I had the same problem with my powershot and with the batteries going bad super fast. The way to fix it is to empty your memory card of all pictures then put it back in the camera blank. That should take care of the problem and should pro;long your battery life as well.

Loosing power randomly


how old are the batteries and how many times they were charged without being fully drained can cause a short life for the battery. Try a new battery-fully charging it properly, but dont charge it again till it goes off by itself completely. If you have a wall charger, plug your phone in. If it stays on that way, check your 'power save' settings. That can also make your camera shut off. Try these steps first and see if it changes the 'battery' from being empty to full and stays on. hope this helps
