Date Battery how to change - Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera


Answers :

Lift the rubber flap on the left side of the camera. Pry open the tiny plastic slide door located there with your fingernail. Remove the CR1220 battery, noting which side goes up and down before you do. Take the battery to your local drug store Walgreens or Riteaid and buy a replacement from the battery section for about $3. Note that drug stores generally sell this battery much cheaper than department stores (like Walmart ~$6). I know that it doesn't make sense.

Hi there We have a Canon Powershot A570IS digital camera, about a month old. Since changing the batteries once, the camera "low battery" warning light blinks every time the camera is switched on, and then it just cuts out with a "change the batteries" message. The new batteries are fine. They have been checked with a voltmeter and are giving spec of 1.5 V each. Any ideas? Thanks for your help Andrew James, Wantage, Oxfordshire, UK
