Question about Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

The camera won't turn on. It's not the AA batteries but could it possibly be the small watch battery in the camera? I'm stumped because the camera was just sitting in a camera bag and is only a year old.

Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

    I had the same problem. Then I noticed that the contact points on the cover door were missing. There are 2, one vertical and one horizontal. I used tin foil for a short time, but I found the batteries would heat up and melt. I tried again and I felt it heat up again, so I took the tinfoil out. Now I am waiting for a new door to be delivered.

My camera won't stay on. Has a Internal memory full message.


This sounds like that you need to delete some images on your camera memory. You can try hooking the camera up to your computer and downloading the pictures to your computer or removing the memory card and using another memory card. You were not specific on what camera you have so some of my suggestions my not apply to your camera. Regarding the power problem try to replace the batteries if it uses conventional AA with digital AA batteries. Not all AA batteries are made the same because digital cameras require a lot of power If it uses rechargeable battery then try to recharge the battery.

Good Luck

How do you get the camera to charge? I put in new batteries and it still says battery low and shuts off. I have plugged it into the computer and it still won't charge. It won't even turn on.


Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.

Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.

If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or

Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.

I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

Camera won't turn on. I replaced the AA batteries and the lithium battery.


Hi johnandmel7 ,

If what you say is right, then you have your camera malfunctioning due to a corrupt flash software.

Therefore you need to visit the service center for canon and get it repaired as they would be having the relevant tools to install the software again on your camera.

Before doing that , please follow the below steps.

1 - Check the batteries in a similar device which uses them , to make sure they are in good condition.

2- If possible check with your neighbor or friend to give them their battery for the sake of checking your cam and if your cam starts up with their batteries then you have a problem with the batteries and you have to replace them.

Just bought a second hand Canon Powershot SX100 IS.


Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Cannot find batteries that work. I have replaced the batteries with different brands and it still wont turn on. What is the problem.... Its not reliable.


It is possible that there is a small amount of corrosion on the contacts in the camera. Use the eraser end of a common pencil to clean these contacts. Also, make sure you are using the correct batteries. It shows here that you have the polaroid i830. this camera uses two AA batteries: Open the battery door, located on the underside of the camera (use your thumb to slide the door outwards). Install the two AA batteries into the battery bay. Install the SD card into the slot located next to the battery bay. Close the battery door.
  1. Step2Press the power button located on top of the camera. Locate the "Playback" button on the rear of the camera, under the "W" button; this button switches the camera between "Capture" and "Playback" modes. Set the camera to "Capture" mode.
  2. Step3Press the button on the bottom right of the rear of the camera to open the mode selection window. Use the navigation buttons to select "Still Image" mode. Press the button labeled "Set Disp" to confirm your selection.

Hi, I have an Olympus fe130 and it keeps saying the batteries are dead when they are brand new. Any ideas? Thanks, Erica


The camera uses very common "AA" batteries, but infortunately AA batteries come in various "stengths", and the FE130 requires a very high strength AA battery- you may have a battery, that will fit in the camera, but just doesn't have the power for your camera, Also, the batteries may be "new" to you (you bought them recently), but they may have been on the store shelf too long (most "throw away batteries have Expiration dates on the package and sometimes on the bateries themselves- if they are still "in date"- have someone check them with a battery tester or voltmeter- if you don't have either of those- see if you have some other device ( a small flashlight) they might fit in to check- occassionally batteries go bad. There is also the possibility is that you purchased AA batteries that are rechargable, like NiCad, that don't have to be thrown away), but they need charging before they can be used, and regularly to keep their charge. If you tell us what the battery label says and any date info it might have we can probably know more.
