Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera ?

I keep putting in new or recharged batteries and every time I get ready to use my camera if it over a week, it says change the batteries. This has just started happening the last 3 months. The camera is several years old.


Answers :

My girlfriend has the same camera, and it is beginning to act up as well. It is just that these things are not built to last forever, and 3-5 years is about all you get. If the unit is exposed to heat, humidity, cold, or extended downtime with no batteries, or dead batteries in it, problems can arise sooner.

\015\012If you have a good quality charger you can fully discharge the batteries you are using, try putting in freshly charged batteries every day for a week or so, if it dosent go away, then its time for a new unit.
The rechargeable batteries, especialy NiCD and NiMH ones, loose they're charge over time. Even if fully charged, they loose all of the charge within a week or two. This is not a malfunction.

However, if you are using alcaline batteries and still get this problem, probably you have some electric problems inside (maybe some batteries leaked in the past). In this case try cleaning the inner contacts of the battery slot. If the problem persists, go to a local electronist for repairs.

My Z1 suddenly started having white lines across the photos I take. Some are narrow and some wider, virtually wiping out the image. I thought it might be the memory card but it happens with a different one too. Might it be the battery? There is no indication that the battery is low. What else can it be? The camera is about 3 years old and this just started last summer. I can send you a picture to demonstrate the issue.

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!

No pwer I am a high school photography teacher who inherited 20 Canon PowerShot S1 IS cameras (going on three years old). I noticed a few last year that didn't turn on even when brand new fresh batteries were put in. The battery chambers are clean with no apparent damage. I am now up to 8 cameras with this problem. They won't even power up when hooked up to the computer for downloading. i even changed the date/time battery just to see but didn't work. Any ideas?

A few months ago my camera started having problems. no matter how many times i change the batteries, the camera still will not turn on and when it does it flashes a quick image and then the screen goes black and it dies without taking in the lens!!! i am very VERY careful with it and have never dropped it, so i do not understand why it is not working! the Camera is only a year old and i have used it quite a few times and it has never had a problem until now.

Okay, so my camera is rather old, maybe 3 years. Its a Kodak EasyShareC433. And when I change the battery, and turn it on to AUTO there is just a black screen with a few shuttered white stripes. It looks like a broken window. And when I turn it on to any other menus, nothing happens. Is there a way I can fix it or is it permanently dead?

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. I tried turning it back on with no result. I recharged the battery with the same result. I figured my battery must be dead ( yet only 1 year old) and purchased a new one. I fully charged that one and plugged my camera in again and the same thing happened! What could this be caused from? No damage has ever
