Hello

If the batteries are indeed new batteries and you are continuing to get this low battery warning, there is a defect within the camera. However, it may or may not be critical.

Test out a new set of batteries, if they last you a typical amount of time, the error is a false reading and can be ignored. However, if the batteries drain at an advanced rate, there is a short in the camera and it will need to be sent in to Canon for service.

I bought the best rechargable batteries and it still has low batt


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 check this link for more info:

Camera is always low on power even when new batteries are installed


Are you using the high power rechargeables, or normal AA's? Some of these cameras will only shoot 20 pics on AA"s, where the good rechargeables will get 1-200+ shots, check with your manual on recommended batteries.

n your battery compartiment is a small cover labeled CR1220.

PLEASE READ MANUAL on how to open it.

Behind that cover you will find a coin shaped battery, provably type CR1220.

Get a replacement battery (watch store/ camera store/...)

Power on camera, set date and time and DONE!

CANON POWERSHOT A530 LOW BATTERY READING


Alicia,
Mentioned on my blog that the last paragraph of the advisory states:

""PowerShot A530 and A540 digital cameras affected by this phenomenon will be repaired free of charge, regardless of warranty status. Accordingly, if the opening/closing spring on the inside of the battery cover of your PowerShot A530 or A540 digital camera sticks out, please do not use the camera. Instead, please contact a Canon call center (1-800-OK-CANON) at your earliest convenience."

But also mentioned that if they don't help, a temporary fix is to insulate the spring from the battery contact plate. Merely place a small piece of tape between the portion of spring that's sticking out and the metal battery contact plate.
