I have the same problem too. It's just started happening. The camera is about 3 years old. I've cleaned the battery contact points with an eraser and ensured there's contact. All seems fine. I only get about 5 shots out of brand new AA batteries, then a black screen with message 'change the batteries'. Can anyone help?

A number of online forums on this problem on Powershot cameras using AA cells. A problem with the battery compartment door appears to be the most plausible problem - take batterys out and put them back in a few times.

Same issues - rechargeable batteries don't do anything. Bought Duracell's and less than 4-5 photos later, camera won't even turn on. Is there a problem with battery contact?

In front of the batteries is a little slot that will come out. It has another battery (CR1220) in it.

I replaced the CR1220 (found the battery at Radio Shack) & my camera is working like new again.

Is there a way to reset the camera.
Mine, some years old, has started showing batteries to be flat too.
When checked on a voltmeter they are fine.
When put into a torch, as a check, it stayed on for some hours!

if this happens even to new batteries, it may no longer be an issue with the batteries, but it can be an issue with the camera itself. check the maximum number of shots that the camera can take with the batteries per its specification. if it should produce more, it would be a good ide ato check with Canon to have the camera checked.

Nokia slide phone which drains battery power very quickly. Have tried new battery to no avail. (Bluetooth is off)


Hello,

The problem could be virus, scan your phone for virus and if you have done that and yet the battery still drain quickly, then, it means the battery terminal on your phone is corrode that is why it drains your battery quickly.

Change the terminals of your phone battery and you will see that your battery will last you longer.

Take care.

Is it rechargable batteries (orignal for the camera), or are you using standard batteries? (AA/RC6 kind of batteries)

If you use AA batteries (or similar) make sure you use alkaline batteries of a good brand. Cheap batteries ofteh don't have the power to run digital cameras. Especially using the LCD screen drains the batteries.

If you have a new rechargable battery and it last only a short time see if using it and recharging it a few times helps the bettery "getting into it". If not, your camera may need repairs.

Dark or Bright images


It might be that (sometimes) the battery is not strong enough to quickly charge the flash and you take a picture when it is not yet able to flash at the power level it needs to. This may be that the battery is weak and/or you try to take a second picture too quickly after the last flash.
On other occasions (when the images are blown out, I.E., overexposed) you are probably too close to your subject and are not using a reduced power flash setting. Experiment with a well-charged battery. Without reducing the flash output you will allways get this overexposure if you are a few feet away from the subject

Battery drains quickly


"It shouldn't do that." But you already know that. Even with everything "on" in the camera it still shouldn't do that.

I think you need to try a) alkaline batteries and b) new NiMh batteries. If it still persists then your camera has a deeper problem and needs to be sent in for repair.

Going through batteries abnormally quickly


Hi. I bought a used A70 that had that problem. I disassembled the outer body panels and found that a base panel assembly screw was too long, and was touching the LCD's ground cable, at the cable's tip. I changed the screw for a shorter one and it was settled. It never happened again.
