Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

The battery sign keeps flashing even when i replace the batteries

Answers :


Based on your description, a strong possibility is that the camera's battery terminals/contacts are corroded and therefore not providing good contact to the battery. What is required therefore is to scrape/clean said camera contacts. In some instances, it would help to slightly bend the contacts (or stretch if spring type) to ensure that they provide more pressure to the batteries.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
