It almost certainly needs servicing.

These cameras are especially prone to jamming up due to dried out lubricant films if they are not regularly used.

Get the seals replaced at the same time as they must be replaced at least annually.

I got this camera a few years ago for Christmas and unfortunatley it is the worst camera I've ever had as far as battery life. I can take 2 or 3 pictures and then it shows low battery. I've replaced new...


It seems there is some where inside the camera leakage.. Are you using Li-ion rechargeable batteries or AA batteries For previously cameras, always comes with AA batteries, and most of the battery are with low capacity.

I bought my canon S5IS 2 years ago.For these 2 years it worked fine but now it is showing "Low battery problem" even when the battery is full charged.I also bought new batteries but that also in...


Make sure that the battery terminals in your camera are clean (rub them with a pencil eraser, q-tip or micro fiber cloth). Dirty terminals can cause poor contact with your batteries, therefore, impacting there performance.

Also, if you are using rechargeable batteries, your batteries may simply need replaced. Try testing the camera with a new set of alkaline or NiMH batteries.

Camera purchased 6 weeks ago and it does not turn on now. batteries read barely into good area on battery charger. thought regular AAs would work, but they don't. HELP!!


Try new Alkyline batteries again ... (not heavy duty ones).
Make sure the batteries are inserted in the correct polarity... I'm sure it's the batteries.

Camera ate batteries fast, now won't even turn on


Try using Lithium batteries. A lot of other batteries don't have enough voltage. Those batteries seem to fix a lot those electrical problems in some cameras. If that doesn't work then more than likely you have a short in side the camera. which could be caused from anything from a grain of sand to moisture from humidity. If that is the case them it more than likely will not be cost effective to fix. It would probably cost around 150 to get fixed.

hope the lithium batteries work,

Hey bray598,
According to the manufacturer this camera comes with AA alkaline batteries so unless you bought defective batteries the ones you purchased should work fine. I would make sure the batteries are inserted properly, and make sure when you turn it on the battery cover and/or the memory card cover are closed. I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Allan

Red light flashes and LCD turns off and on


A quick test would be to purchase a set of Duracell Ultra Digital batteries and try them. They won?t last for very long; however, if they make the red light go away then you problem is either the batteries you are using or the charger. More often than not its going to be the batteries so we?ll start there: Check your batteries, you should be using Nickel metal hydride (Ni-ME) that are rated at 1450 (I use 2500) mAh or better. If the batteries are more than one year and you?ve used them a lot then its likely the batteries just aren?t holding a charge anymore. Purchase a new set or borrow a working set from a friend. Charge them in your charger and try in your camera, if the red LED goes away use the batteries till they need charging again. Charge them in your charger and if the red LED stays off then the batteries were the problem. If the red LED returns then try charging your batteries in someone else?s working NiME charger. Put them in your camera and if the red LED goes away then your charger is the fault.

Camera shuts off seconds after turning it on and battery is charged


I've had this same problem with multiple cameras.  Try purchasing a new battery.  The original batteries don't seem to hold a charge at all.  I've solved the problem by purchasing an external battery charger and two batteries.  When I notice one gets low, I switch and am all set...  My students usually give me a heads up when it's time too.

Technical problem


I purchased a *ist DS used a couple of weeks ago, and it turns out to have similar problems. This camera seems very fussy about batteries. I am using rechargeable NiMh AAs. After about 30-40 exposures, the camera shows battery depleted. If I turn the camera off, then back on, it will show a charge - sometimes a full charge and will work for another 20 or so exposures. It can keep this up for a couple of days.

I read an explanation in one of the photo blogs (can't remember which) that suggested this was caused by one or two incompletely charged batteries in set of 4. If one is discharged the current from the others supposedly will flow to it, giving fluctuating power readings to the power management curcuit. This sounded plausible enough that I purchased a new charger yesterday which monitors the charge on each battery. Too early to tell whether this solved the problem or not. The other option is to switch to disposable batteries.
