Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera ?

Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera - low battery light keeps flashing even after I replace the batteries with new ones that are fully charged.

\015\012I have the same camera and the same fault. CNET are suggesting Canon should recall the camera because of this fault. I did see elsewhere on the net that it was a battery contact problem and a home-made modification could fix it. The camera takes great pictures but I can only use it if I have a batch of fully charged cells with me, and keep changing them. If I go out I take my Olympus or Fuji with me.

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.

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

Battery issue Hi, I've owned this camera for about 1 year. In the last couple of months the red battery icon will flash and the camera will shut down thinking it has dead batteries.

I have had the Nikon D40 for about 4 years. It has performed wonderfully and I love it. Just recently, the battery suddenly died (in one hour it went from 3 bars to one) and after several failed attempts to charge it, the camera would not allow me to take photos due to the battery needing recharging (flashing one bar). I ordered a new Nikon battery and put it in the charger when it arrived today. It registered that it was charging and after over an hour said it was completely charged. When
