Question about Canon PowerShot SD500 / IXUS 700 Digital Camera
After I have have taken only two or three photos the change battery pack message comes up and the camera shuts down
I have tried three different batteries and two different chargers so I assume the problem is the camera not the batteries or chargers
Hmmmmm, the only thing I can think of, are you using the correct type batteries ? Check your instruction manual for the correct type of batteries, if you still have a problem I send it in for repair work or return it if it's new. Good Luck

I heve the same problem. I have 5 fully charged batteries and the camera always either will not come on or says battery needs replacing. I tried a few things and found that if I put a piece of tape on the center pin of the batteries, the camera works just great. I don't know if it will tell me now when the battery is low or not. I am wondering if the problem is the charger or the camera.

I figured out the problem. My AA battery recharger was not making good contact, so although it said the batteries were recharged, this was not the case. After fixing this and getting full recharges, the problem went away.

I had this on mine. If you pen the battery compartment door, you will see a piece of plastic labelled "CR1220". You can pull this out and replace the little CR1220 battery that it holds. That ought to solve your problem.
