Nothing is wrong with the camera or the batteries. Rechargeable batteries of all kinds will self-discharge over time. Charge them fully (if they are NiMH completely charge and discharge them a few times), and you should see full battery capacity.

Runs thru batteries very within 2 or 3 uses.


This is not unusual for many cameras. They draw quite a bit of battery power, especially if you leave the LCD view screen on constantly. You will get longer usage id you limit the use of the display screen and use lithium batteries rather than rechargables. Costs more, but you won't lose tha shot when the batteries give up.

I have to change batteries in my Canon A710 after 5 - 10 pictures, what can be the broblem and how to fix it?


Buy the best quality batteries, but NOT the highest mAhr ones. They are designed for long usage for low drain applicaions but may not be able to deliver the high currents required by digital cameras. 2100-2400mAh is said to be best. Also, use a good quality charger that can discharge and slow recharge to reconditionbatteries. I recently bought a Maha charger and some Imedion batteries. Now my camera works as it should. (previously it lost the auto-focus after a few shots). A bit expensive but cheaper than a new camera!

i suggest replacing a fresh battery will most likely solve your prob, overtime rechargeable battery can drain easily, try changing with a new battery and see if it does work well, there might be insufficient current, thats why it tends to drop of voltage easily upon using, 
there is a specified lifetime for rechargeable battery, depends on your usage and charging method, theymaybe fully charged but sometimes wont give you enough power to drive

Alkaline batteries are a No-No Rechargeable Ni Cads are little better The Best are NiMh Rechargables in the AA cell range or Li-on in the specialist range. Always get for the best.

Battery life expectancy


The battery life on alkaline batteries vary according to manufacturer and power rating. Alkaline Batteries can provide up to 100 shots with typical usage. The Olympus Ni-MH batteries (B-01 4PE) would provide approximately 250 shots per charge and they can be recharged 300 to 500 times. Olympus recommends the use of CR-3V litium battery packs or NiMH rechargeable batteries. Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary.
