My Powershot SX10 IS has worked perfectly for 2 years. Recently I needed to change batteries, and since I did, (4 AA batteries), no matter how many times I put in brand new batteries of all brands, I...


First off, make sure that you're using good quality batteries, and not generic alkaline. Rechargeable NiMH are best. Next possibility is that not all of the batteries are making contact in the case. Make sure that the terminals at the bottom of the battery case haven't been bent low. If any of the batteries sit lower in the case than the others, try bending its bottom terminal up just a little bit so that it sits a little higher in the case, possibly improving its contact.

Thank you for such a detailed description, wishing others would take your lead. To the problem camera designated batteries (other then AA rechargeable) have always been a bit of a sore spot for me because the user is compelled to purchase a specific battery. As much as I prefer the name brand accessories for the camera there come a point where you just gotta venture forth with third party accessories. There is nothing wrong with using an "off" brand in fact what I've found is that is some cases they are a better battery. Again back to the problem. I grasping thoughts on how to word this but, here goes. As much as the manufactures would like you to believe that these batteries do not form a memory they do. Also the battery can trick you into thinking it's fully charged when in fact even though the charge light is saying completed it's only got about 1/3 charge. I've worked with Canon's BP 511 and now the "new" BP 511A for many years The BP511A or equivalent is the better battery. What needs to be done is to drain those batteries down until they stop, let it cool don't take it from the camera to the charger. Time the battery when you put it on the charger, meaning not to the second but what you would "normally" do is plug the battery into the charger and leave it right. Well what's possibly happening is that within ten minute the ready light is coming on, (something stupid going on in the battery) So check the battery stat of charge after say 15 minutes and if it says it ready (drum roll please) remove the battery unplug the charger for a few seconds and place the battery charger back onto the wall outlet and plug the battery back into the charger and look at your watch again. I've had to do this as much as three times until the thing would get the idea it was to take a charge "normally" about 2 hours will bring it back up. There is no device I've found to completely drain one of these batteries so over a period of time in your case one year the batteries begin this fit. I've since replaced the BP511 for the better BP511A's or equivalent. I'm not pointing a finger because myself and staff do the same thing and pull the battery before going to a shoot if it's showing partial discharge and the thing gets put onto charge and we start this cycle all over again. Be careful of the charger as well meaning don't just disconnect the battery and put it back on charge when it's going the cycle thing disconnect the charger from its power source as well because it holds a memory for a few seconds and will just shut off in a few moments if you don't.

Long story but I've been doing this now for 9 years since the dawn of Canon's 30D Cheers

If it's really almost new, why don't you take advantage of the warranty?

Camera immediate shuts off after turning it on


try using lithium or nimh rechargeable batteries. I had the same problem and switched out the batteries and put in eveready nimh batteries and it works fine now. Guess the old cheap ones weren't doing the job. And they were brand new batteries.

Mine did the same thing for forever and was brand spankin new... When the batteries go dead once, I guess it glitches... You can put brand new ones in and it will Still say low battery or act like it anyway. Give it some time. Then try to turn it on again and it will be fine. Also it will say you have a low battery if you are taking too many pics at a time... like snap snap snap and it will shut down... turn it back on in twenty minutes and its fine... full battery. If you can't deal with this... Get a battery charger and rechargable batteries. I am using them now with none of these problems

New Batterys and camera indicates batterys low then shuts off.


Did the batteries come with the camera? If not, they might not be a high enough mah rating. Some batteries, even though brand new, may not be strong enough to power a camera.

Battery Problems


I had problem with the "brand new" battereis that came with camera (date on batteries was thru 2014) ... after 2 or 3 pictures ... camera would not work. I replaced with fresh batteries ... works great now. I checked voltage on shipped batteries (that came with camera) ... was about 1.3 volts ... new battereis should be 1.55+ volts. This suggests that shipped "brand new| batteries ... are not "brand new". I called Polaroid .. best I got was "sorry" ... and "call Duracell".

Camera says brand new batteries are dead, then shuts down


It is possible that the batteries are dead (they might be faulty or too old) even when they are out of the package, though unlikely. Try another set of batteries, and if these don't work, you'll probably have to send it for a checkup.
