Question about Canon Digital Cameras
Not sure which model you have, but if it is an A series and you use double A batteries, try cleaning the battery contacts inside the battery compartment with a pencil eraser. If this doesn't work, call Canon to set up service. Free tech support, free estimate (just pay shipping cost) and a chance that you may qualify for their upgrade program for deeply discounted upgrade to a newer model.

First make sure that you are using quality batteries, and not "super heavy duty". If so, some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info.

I don t have a solution, but I got a similar problem. When I install new batteries, they only last for maybe 10 snaps- snaps ,then the "battery" light comes on and camera shuts off. I ve tried several sets of different batteries so its not a battery problem.
Power shot A70-15 8.0 pixels 6X zoom
Maybe someone can help us out
