Question about Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera
I have found that the camera is sensitive to battery power in that a slight fall off in voltage causes the problem. I came across a site, which I have not been able to find again, where it was stated that the contacts on the lid do not sit with sufficient pressure on the batteries to get a good contact. If you put the batteries in and look across the top, in my case, the battery +ve terminal is sitting slightly lower than the –ve battery terminal. To solve it, put a small piece of very thin plastic under the +ve contact on the lid so that it sits more proud. This has certainly improved my problem to the extent that this week the plastic fell out and the problem returned. Also I always use high capacity re-chargeable batteries. Hope this helps.
