Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera ?

Display says to change batteries..have done and still says to change batteries


Answers :

Strange as this solution might sound,m it works; clean the battery contacts in the camera, as well as the battery itself with alcohol. Even a small bit of oxidation, at the current level the camera requires, drops quite a few mvolts, enough for the camera to think your battery is running low.

Hi,

I am not sure what type & brand of batteries you are using, Use these batteries:-\015\012\015\012
    \015\012
  • Canon rechargeable (NiMH) batteries. (Rechargeable)
  • \015\012
  • In non-rechargeable batteries- Use AA alkaline batteries (Energizer or Duracell)
\015\012Have a nice day\015\012Rating the solution is highly appreciated.
