Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera
I've only had my camera for three months. I had no problem with it initially. Now as soon as I put new batteries in it keeps telling me to 'change the batteries' and flashes red. This has happened with three sets of batteries and the last rechargeables I put in, it only allowed me to take one photo before it started flashing red. I'm at a loss as to what to do, any help would be appreciated.
Konw this is an old post but this may help others with this problem. 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.
