There is a red & white icon at the top of camera blinking. It is not the battaries. This icon is no where in the book that came with camera. This camera is powershot a560

Does the icon look roughly like an oval with a diagonal line through it? On some other models, this is a warning that the date battery needs to be replaced. I couldn't find the icon in the book either, but there are directions on pages 106 and 107 for replacing this battery. The battery is a button type, CR1220.

Hi I have just put brand new batteries in my canon powershot A560 and having taken approx 4 or 5 photos it is now telling me that my batteries need changing. The low battery symbol is also on alot of the...

Make sure that you use the correct type of batteries some cameras prefer Alkaline or Zinc Carbon both at v1.5 some only can take 3 rechargeable Nickel Cadmium (Nicad) Cells at 1.3V (3x1.5v= 3.9V) or one Lithium Ion at 3.6V

Be careful if you put a 1.3V NiCad Rechargeable in a camera that was designed for 1.5 Alkaline it can damage the camera and you may experience similar problems to that you have now.

Always check that you are using the recommended batteries, this is why most manufactures supply there own Lithium Ion 3.6V rechargeable K type cells to avoid this type of problem.

Flashes low battery with only a few shots. Battery is new. Also what brand of rechargable batteries do you suggest?

cameras eat batteries fast. the best cameras have rechargable battery packs.

i'd use energizer or duracell. try to stay away from alkiline rechargables as they wear out fast. try Nickle Medal Hydrate Batteries (NiMH).

Low battery

Digital cameras are like miniature computers, constantly processing large amounts of data, their power requirements far exceed film based cameras and conventional batteries are simply not up for the task. I have seen plenty of times where someone has bought a brand new pack of cheap batteries which fail to even turn on a digital camera! You are best to spend your money on a set of rechargeable Ni MH batteries. They will pay themselves off many times over and will reduce unnecessary landfill. You can of course still buy disposable if its more convenient but you really do have to spend up on top of the range quality to get any good use out of them. Also be aware that cameras using only two batteries (such as the 560) are more demanding again on battery performance.

Battery problem with Canon A560 digital camera

The problem is the batteries that you're currently using. They just don't have the power needed to run the camera, sometimes even if brand new and just out of the package. Digital cameras are power hungry, especially those that run on only two AA batteries (like your A560). You need to use the best batteries that are available. I recommend NiMH rechargeable batteries, power rated at 2,500 mah or better. They are 3 to 4 times more powerful than regular batteries. They will also quickly save you money as they can be used over and over again for years.
