Change batteries message pops up with new batteries
I've always used chargeable batteries, but lately, immediately after they've been charged, the 'change batteries' message pops up on my A85 Power Shot camera. I tried using fresh Duracell batteries, and the message popped up after only a few days (camera use no higher than usual).
Can you tell me how long, generally, I should get out of my camera with fresh batteries (maybe my chargeable batteries are done?), or if this is indeed a 'trouble-shooting' problem that you can help solve.

Re: change batteries message pops up with new batteries
Chargeable batteries usually last for a year or two. Alkaline batteries should only be expected to last for around a dozen shots (as such, NEVER rely on alkaline batteries). Recommend buying another set of NiMH rechargeables. Make sure you get 2500 mah or better power rating (look on the package).
a 6ya Expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

check the mhr on the batteries you use
they should be re-chargeable batteries as alkaline batteries do not have what it takes and run down very quickly
the re-chargeable battery should be around the 2000 mhr rating
Let the battery completely discharge all they way and let it sit for a day or so. Some times when a battery is new most user do not let it fully charge and then completely drain this causes problems for long use batteries. Then give it a try. It also sounds like your plug your cord that connects to the battery may be faulty. Did you by a different cord with the battery? Or use the one from your old one? If you did. This is a "No No" always buy the cord that come for those battery since they are rated for the particular battery.
Firstly always use rechargeable Alkaline batteries.
If your phone has been working prior to your change of batteries then the problem lies with battery contacts in the phone even when you place the batteries correctly. They are not clean. Clean them with a abrasive cloth. Now fix the new batteries and see if they are being charged.
If still the problem persists then get the contacts checked up for any contact not functioning.
Has anytime the old battery busted/leaked inside the phone????
You do not change the battery as it is re-chargeable. It is charged in the key fob unit while it is in the car's ignition and while you are driving the vehicle.
If you have a spare key that has low battery power then it needs to be used in the vehicle to charge the battery.
If you have been using the key fob and it has suddenly failed this is probably due to a faulty circuit board. You will need to replace the key fob with a new one from the dealer. It needs to be programmed for your car by the dealer.
Always have a spare key for this vehicle and keep the battery charged by using it occasionally.
ok before contacting your provider try taking out the sim card and battery. while there out i want you to put the sim card in before the battery then after sim is in put battery let it sit for 2 minutes then turn on. (also before starting make sure battery is fully charged, if not charge it before doing anything. Or if you have a backup battery use that, make sure its fully charged also)
If this is a new service, and your just recently using it, make sure #1 you have the data package activated from your provider #2 make sure they dont have your account locked because of an unpaid or late bill. cell phone operators are alowed to lock services if bill is late or not paid on time. there grace period is only 30 days max
if this helped please spend the time to rate the service
It is impossible for me to say for sure without actually looking at it but the problem is, most likely, the battery. Changing it will probably fix the problem.
Take a look at the circuit boeard for corrosion or burnt spots. If you see neither of these, I would say that there is a 98% chance that only the battery needs changed
Hi make sure you have charged up your new batteries, Always the new rechargeable batteries are to be charged to minimum of 8 hours of time to keep the memory of the chargeable batteries active. Hope this helps you.
All the battery have a life time fixed working hours. Your battery is charged but he complete is working time. Thats why these msg will come. Dont warry use the battery when you see the power going down after a while of charging then change the battery and buy new 1. Good luck.
Thanks, i am waiting for your feed back & if you satisfied then thumps me please.
Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.
