Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A510 Digital Camera ?

It keeps asking me to change the batteries

\015 I have changed batteries. I have cleaned the connection terminals. I have looked at the spring to see if it is in contact with the plate and none of these solutions has changed anything. What could be wrong with the A510 that it continues to tell me to change the batteries?\015

Answers :

If you haven't already, buy rechargeable batteries. I used to have the same problem. If you are using regular batteries, there juice is used up very quickly. I use Energizer rechargeable batteries and they recharge in 15 minutes. Also you'll have to buy the charger as well. I hope this helps your problem.
