Question about Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera
Couldn't find a firmware upgrade for my Canon PowerShot A720. Tried putting a piece of rubber under the spring on the lid to make it tighter and it helped because I can take more pictures before I get the dead battery message (even thought they aren't dead). I bought the Duracell that you can check the charge on because I'm sure I've wasted dozens of batteries by now.

Yes, my A95 in 3 years old and it suddenly started doing the same thing. The strange thing is that if you switch to picture review mode (instead of taking a picture) the batteries appear to last for ages... even though it's the LCD that's supposed to consume the most energy! If the battery level sensor didn't switch the camera off I think it would be fine.

SOURCE: Keeps saying to change batteries
It occurred lately with reloadable NiMh-batteries.
When I put in some alkaline batteries I had no problem.
I cleaned the contact surfaces of the NiMh-batteries and the contact surfaces in the camera. Up till now I have had no problems.

SOURCE: new batteries are not accepted
put batteries in very carefully - not bouncing them in. If you get the 'change the batteries message' then open the battery cover turn the camera a little gently to reposition the batteries and hopefully it should go away. Test your charger too ... is it charging? is it the same thing with non-rechargeable batteries?remember Batteries don't work well when cold this could cause the camera to shutdown. It might also be that the auto shut down setting is too short unless it is shutting down while you are actually shooting.make sure you are using the correct battery type and match.clean the contacts in the battery compactment.hope this helps
