Question about Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera
Check the type batteries you are using. This camera uses either the alkaline batteries (don't use the cheaper brands, their residual power is much less) or the NiMH [Nickel-Metal Hydride] rechargeables. The NiMH batteries give you greater service and increased life in the camera. Nickel Cadmium batteries are unpredictable for use in this camera.
You may also want to check your battery contacts on the batteris themselves and also the contacts inside the camera. To clean the contacts inside the camera use a reliable contact cleaner. I use either NU-TROL or Deoxit. A quick squirt and cotton bud swirls will do the job. Make sure you wipe the terminals of the battery with it as well. Body oils can partially insulate from conduction. If you can't find a good contact cleaner, I found mine at Baynesville Electronics, 410-823-0082.
Hope this helps.
