Question about Canon PowerShot A510 Digital Camera

1 Answer

It keeps asking me to change the batteries

I have changed batteries. I have cleaned the connection terminals. I have looked at the spring to see if it is in contact with the plate and none of these solutions has changed anything. What could be wrong with the A510 that it continues to tell me to change the batteries?

    Every time I switch to take a picture (shooting mode) I get an error change batteries. I changed the batteries a few times and I still get the error. I can use the playback mode with no issues or errors to review the pictures and videos on the card with no issues. Is this camera toast?

    I have the same problem and do have rechargeable batteries. Doesn't seem to make any difference.

If you haven't already, buy rechargeable batteries. I used to have the same problem. If you are using regular batteries, there juice is used up very quickly. I use Energizer rechargeable batteries and they recharge in 15 minutes. Also you'll have to buy the charger as well. I hope this helps your problem.

Canon PowerShot A510 "change the batteries"


Take a look at the following recall advisory for the A530/A540.

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=12914&keycode=2111&id=28800

Look closely at the second picture. Does the spring on your battery door stick out and overlap/touch the metal battery contact plate as shown in the second picture? If so, affix a small piece of tape to the contact plate between the plate and the spring to insulate the plate from the spring. Make sure that the spring should not be able to directly touch the plate, and is shielded by the tape.

Note that currently Canon has not included the A510 in the recall, but if you experience this problem, this fix should correct it.
