Question about Canon PowerShot A460 Digital Camera
It eats batteries so fast I can't take any more than one picture after changing
Which batteries are you using? If they are rechargables, make sure they are not drained because you can overcharge them to the point that they discharge. If they are regular AA batteries, make sure they are reputable brand, and if they are, then use a pencil eraser to gently clean the battery contacts inside the camera. If none of these steps work, the camera may have an excessive battery drain issue and needs service. You should call Canon and see if you can have it repaired under one year manufacturer's warranty, or if you are beyond the year warranty, ask about the Canon Loyalty program where you can upgrade your camera for a deep discount for another model with a 6 month warranty.
Hope this helps!
