    Hi I have the exact same problem. I got the camera for christmas & recently went to London and tried to use it properly for the first time so I was not best pleased when it flashed up saying low battery. I had a pack of 8 duracell in my bag but it still kept flashing up low battery then turning off. My boyfriend got me the camera and has deleted the receipt from his emails so any help would be really appreciated!

Some cameras have a bettery setting in the menu. You need to make sure this setting is set to the type of batteries you are using. Usually when you use akaline batteries and even if you put in fresh batteries but still get the low battery indication then your camera is set to rechargable (Ni-Mh). Ni-Mh has more power to it then alkaline so this is why you get the low indication.

I have a Canon powershot A1100is dig camera. When I try to turn it on, it reads need new batteries. even if I change the batteries. Sometimes it wont even turn on. Help


Do you using Ni-MH batteries? Canon cameras judge the battery is low power by the real-time voltage of the batteries. And the voltage of Ni-MH batteries are lower than Li-ion ones, so the camera will notice low power even there are new batteries. Try Li-ion ones and see is anything help. best wishes!!
If you will use of a special battery, please come to our online shop for digital camera batteries

After charging the Battery the power button flash blinks


i think the red light means low power for battery... maybe just maybe your battery didnt really charge.. im not saying that its the charger, but try to buy a new rechargeable batteries, use it then charge it and compare it with the other one... i think thats the problem with batteries if we stop using it for a long time... hope ull be able to resolve it

My dmc Lz8 continually zooms in and out and then goes blank.


Same problem, lens cycles in and out then says 'turn off and back on again'. I fixed by grabbing the lens as is comes out and pulling and wiggling to help it to it's full out position. Don't force it, but help it reach full out. It took a couple of times, but now seems ok. Suspect a grain of sand or dust was preventing it from reaching full extend.

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

Camera wont turn on.


Main power led to on/off switch is crushed and not enough power gets through.
you have disassemble the camera.
I would think first before tring this.
Remove 3 screws on bottom, 1 in battery compartment, and 1 at very top of usb flap (look good).
Now slide the side piece starting at the usb flap then apply pressure to top and away from unit.
now look for 1 silver and three black screws (facing back and front, look good).
See the big red wire leading to main on off switch if it crushed thats the problem.
I replaced it with a longer piece of wire.
Remember to replace battery door first if it fell off during process.
*TEST NOTE: You can place batteries in and place a penny across the bottom to test before you put it back together.

Camera wont switch on


Try to use another 2 batteries. The problem could be with the batteries or the charger. By the way, did you checked batteries voltage or tried to use them in another appliance ?
