Answers :

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. Please check the following link for more info:

Battery Problem When fully charged the camera will work for a few hours. It can be switched off annd back on again and will run with no little loss of charge after 8 hours or so. If a fully charged battery is fitted but is not turned on the camera will not even switch on after about 15 hours - the battery is totally run down. New batteries have been used but no difference is found. This has happened from new. It was returned to Nikon UK's service department with a covering letter trying to

Sony DSC-S600 Sorrry! What happens is this:- Turn camera on,Cybershot screen opens up with musical jingle then it will say "Access" then another screen opens up saying "Turn power off and on again". Sometimes you don't get the "Access" and it will go straight into the "Power off and on again" screen. Tried this - no good. Changed batteries for fully charged brand new 2700mAh NIMH - 1.2V Uniross - still no good ! Any advice would be appreciated. Regards

My cybershot DSC-S730 has new NiMH batteries. The batteries can be fully charged when i put them into the camera and after a few photos I often put the camera away. When i go to use the camera the next day the battery charge is insufficient to open it. I can then them remove the batteries and put them into an older model cybershot and the old camera will work with the same batteries. Why does the new camera only work with batteries that have come directly off the charger. This is a nuisance as I

Canon PowerShot A495 - Brand new. Used it once and took 40 photos. It then told me to change the batteries which I did. From then on it keeps saying "change the batteries" I've used alkalines and also rechargeable NiMH, These are either new or fully recharged batteries and still I get the same message. I have also cleaned the terminals inside the camera and even those on the batteries themselves. No change. This is clearly not a battery problem. This is a camera problem and its seems I am not th

Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later. I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co

Sony DSC H5 runs down batteries very rapidly. Much faster than when the camera was originally purchased. A pair of new AA batteries only lasts for 12 - 24 photos. Brand new rechargeables fully charged are totally drained after sitting in the camera for a few weeks with no use. The camera is definitely OFF. This did not happen three years ago when I bought the camera, it started in the last 6 months. I can't go on like this!

Hi! I took several shots yesterday and went to upload the pix on my computer today and when I connected the camera to my computer the battery was at 100%. Then the camera completely shut off.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 turns on sporadically. Once on it works fine. Shut it off and try to turn back on and it doesn't. Repeated pushing of the power button maybe 30-40 times and it turns back on again. Once you get it on it Works fine. Turn off and when you want to turn it on again must push power button over and over to get it on again.

After leaving my Sony DSC-T2 camera unused for only a couple of days the battery was flat. I recharged it fully but again it only lasted a day or two. I assumed the battery was dead and I purchased a new Sony NP-BD1 battery and charged it correctly. This new battery is behaving exactly the same as the old one, only holding a charge for a day or two at most. It seems the camera is draining the battery when it is switched off, or maybe the charger is faulty ??? Any ideas?? many thanks - Geoff
