Digital cameras are famously demanding on batteries. You must use good alkaline batteries or better, a set of high capacity NiMH rechargeables. Zinc or "long life" batteries just aren't up to the task, and they can leak and cause corrosion.

NiMH batteries with a capacity of 2700mAH are available, and these will last longer, per charge, than name brand alkalines, as well as being rechargeable. You can buy these with a charger fairly cheaply now (though they obviously cost more than disposables). You will probably want two sets, one to be on charge while you use the other.

When using brand new fully charged batteries. After only 2/3 minutes use, the camera displays the red battery warning icon and then shuts down,


Some batteries, although the correct nominal voltage for the camera, are not powerful enough for continued use. I have found the best solution is to use rechargeable NiMH batteries of at least 2100 MaH, preferably 2500 MaH.

Hi. Hope this helps. If the first one doesn't work, go to the next. :-)

1. Plug/pop it into the charger.
2. Take the batteries out and put them back in.
3. Change the Batteries (rechargeables may have died if either used a LOT or not used in a long time).
4. Remove the batteries. Use a bit of very fine sandpaper (200 or 400 grit) to gently sand the battery contacts. Use "canned air" like Dust-off to blow the debris from the battery compartment. Reinstall the batteries
4. Look for a tiny "hole" in the housing that doesn't appear to be for anything, like headphones or external mike's. Unfold a paper clip; gently insert it into the hole until you meet resistance then take it out. This might be the reset button.

Good Luck!

Any time I try to turn my camera on it always tells me to "change the batteries" even when the batteries are brand new.


Have you tried charging the brand new batteries? Often batteries are shipped with little or no charge in them, and need a full charge before use.

How do you change the battery? Mod. HM3


Replacing the batteries The thermometer is supplied with two 1.5 V type AA (LR 06). For best performance, we recommend Duracell ® alkaline batteries. Insert new batteries when the battery symbol appears on the display. Open the battery compartment. Remove the batteries and replace with new batteries, making sure the poles are in the right direction. Slide battery door back until it snaps in place. To protect the environment, dispose of empty batteries at appropriate collection sites according to national or local regulations.

Canon Power shot A530 repeatedly displays "change


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.

When i put the new batery it will display "change the batery" and automatically power off the camera


This camera takes AA batteries. You must use good alkaline batteries or better, a set of high capacity NiMH recharegables. Zinc batteries just aren't up to the task.

New rechargeable batteries are supplied only partially charged. You need to charge them fully before use.

Mine did the same thing for forever and was brand spankin new... When the batteries go dead once, I guess it glitches... You can put brand new ones in and it will Still say low battery or act like it anyway. Give it some time. Then try to turn it on again and it will be fine. Also it will say you have a low battery if you are taking too many pics at a time... like snap snap snap and it will shut down... turn it back on in twenty minutes and its fine... full battery. If you can't deal with this... Get a battery charger and rechargable batteries. I am using them now with none of these problems
