Question about Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera
My battery only stays charged long enough to take 5 photos. This was happening about 6 months ago, so I bought a new battery. This battery is less than 6 months old. Could this be a problem with the camera?
This new battery, if it is the exact type of battery recommended by the manufacturer then it is most likely not the battery. if you bought a similar battery it might be for even the minimum difference makes all the difference with digital cameras. for camera repair this company does a good job and you can even select your problem on their online quote. www.teleplancamerarepair.com

iIt seems that the battery is low or not powerful enough to run the camera properly. when the camera notices there is not enough power it will automatically shut down. ensure the battery is fully charged up on the charger and then try it. the battery type is
Canon NB-3L and if the camera is a few years old or has been stored for a long time the battery may need to be replaced.
if all these have been done and still the problem persists i would recommend a dealer have a look at the camera.
to replace battery open slider plate on bottom of camera and flip tab to release the battery pack.
I hope this was useful.
