Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera ?

Low battery all the time

\015 My Canon Powershot A550 shows the low battery signal even when I put new batteries in. The lense continuously closes and the camera shuts off even with new batteries. What's going on?\015

Answers :

Remove one battery after using your camera..install again when taking more photos. This solved my draining battery problem.
This is not a good signal. you can make this prove. clean the internal camera contact with a specific contact spray and one cotton fioc
ore you can use normal denaturated alcohol. this is one possibilty. if you dont have any betterment. its probably that the camera have a eletronic defekt. this is not so uncommon with old camera. the camera have internal fuse the works not good and gives this problem. motherboard defekt. good luck i hope for you that is only a dirty contact faulty.

My Canon Powershot A2000 displays a low battery even when I've just replaced with new. I've replaced several times, each time with two identical batteries, each time from a different package. I may be able to shoot 6 photos before the low battery sign shows up again, and maybe four more before the camera instructs me to replace them. What's up?

Bad Battery My DIgimax 530 has had battery problems for some time now. I know that this problem has not been like this forever. When I put a new battery in, it uses it quite quickly, then says low battery. The only problem is, when I test the batteries with my battery tester, it says that they are partially full (still in the "good" zone). I am just a kid and don't have much money, I use it for the video feature. It's warranty has timed out, Is there a simple solution?

The date/time is all zero (the photo properties default to 1 Jan 1980) and I have to either enter the date/time or press Func/Set to clear the screen. Whichever option I take.. the same thing happens every time. Is there a way to make the date/time "stick"?
