Put the old batteries back in and see if they still work, also if you have a "volt meter" check your new batteries to insure they are indeed good. You don't give the make or model of your camera so I don't know what kind of batteries you use, but you could take them back to where you bought them and have those folks check them. one last thing, if that cameara has been sitting for over a year with batteries in it, the contact may have corroded, look at the and see if they are shiny silver or if they are dull (maybe white or blue) then you need to clean those contacts before the batteires will make connection. you can clean them with the eraser of a regular pencil.

Of canon powershot A460


The A460 uses standard AA batteries. If you choose to use rechargeable batteries, you must charge them outside the camera in a separate charger.

Whenever I put new batteries into my Canon Powershot A480, I get the same thing - I get the 'Low Battery' red flashing light. And Then as I go to take a picture it shuts off and says ; Change The Batties....


I've got the same problem with 2 A 480 canon. I put in NiMH batteries and they work fine. If you put in slightly drained used batteries they work!! Nimh batteries are 1.2 volts and Alkaline are 1.5 volts. There is definitly a problem with this camera. I measured the voltages of brand new batteries 1.51 volts each and they didn't work. I put in some old batteries 1.4 and 1.42 volts and they worked fine.

My Canon S2 IS keeps saying 'change the battery' even if I put the new batteries in. Why...? Thanks.


there is a little coing battery located inside the battery compartment for the AA's. CR1220 you can get this at Radio Shack for about $5. If this battery is bad you will get the change batteries screen no matter how many fresh AA's you put in, Use a good quality alkaline battery such as the Energizer rechargable rated at 2700 mAh.

Canon A460 problem


I have a Canon A460 and the only red light I know of is the auto-focus light. If it's a low battery you'll see the indicator on the screen, not a light.

I have a Canon A460 that does this every now and then. Usually if I removed the batteries and put them back in, it does the trick. If that doesn't work, and the camera will stay on, try resetting it. Click Menu> Tools and then scroll all the way to the last option Reset All. Good luck!
