Question about Cameras

1 Answer

Canon I have a fairly new 1 1/2 year old canon power shot A530. It keeps saying the batteries are low even with new ones in it. It says to change them then shuts off. If I turn it back on it may be ok for a short time then says they are low again. Any suggestions?

You need to power it with rechargable batteries. with the MAH being no less than 2000. I bought a charger which came with 2batteries for less than a tenner

Canon Power shot A530 repeatedly displays "change


First make sure that you are using quality batteries, and not "super heavy duty". If so, some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info.

I have a Canon PowerShot A530 camera which is around 4 years old. till recently it was working great but from last 3 months, it is giving false indication of low batteries and shuts down. Even after full...


if you are using this camera for 4 yrs with the same lithium battery then you might need to try a new battery
any lithium battery cell's capacity diminishes after long use. it reduces the cell's ability to deliver current. the older batteries do not charge as much as new one.
when you charge your battery it irreversibly loses approximately 20% capacity per year.
hope this help

Camera is always low on power even when new batteries are installed


Are you using the high power rechargeables, or normal AA's? Some of these cameras will only shoot 20 pics on AA"s, where the good rechargeables will get 1-200+ shots, check with your manual on recommended batteries.

When Turning on the Canon Power Shot A530 the


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, or if repair costs close to the value of the camera, they're worth a try.

CANON POWERSHOT A530 LOW BATTERY READING


Alicia,
Mentioned on my blog that the last paragraph of the advisory states:

""PowerShot A530 and A540 digital cameras affected by this phenomenon will be repaired free of charge, regardless of warranty status. Accordingly, if the opening/closing spring on the inside of the battery cover of your PowerShot A530 or A540 digital camera sticks out, please do not use the camera. Instead, please contact a Canon call center (1-800-OK-CANON) at your earliest convenience."

But also mentioned that if they don't help, a temporary fix is to insulate the spring from the battery contact plate. Merely place a small piece of tape between the portion of spring that's sticking out and the metal battery contact plate.
