Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera ?

The camera keeps shutting down with message 'change batteries'. This has nothing to do with the AA batteries as I power it by the mains. What batteries are they talking about. Trevor

Answers :

Hello Trevor

The fact that the camera is saying the battery's has to be changed could be caused by several factors. The camera still tests the battery even if the adaptor is inserted. So , here is my recommendation to try first and start eliminating possibilities.

Remove your battery's and test them with a voltmeter if you have one and report back what you got and the type of battery's you are using.

Also , use a pencil eraser to clean the contact tips of the battery's and then give them a few hours charge. Then try them in you camera again.

Report back to me what happened and we can take it from there. I will be available for the next 8 hours.

Kind Regards

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks

You didn't say what type of batteries you are using. Best are CR-V3 lithium which should give 500 shots. 2300 mAh Ni-MH rechargeable batteries should give 200 shots. Worst are alkalines which Olympus do not recommend. Have you checked the co ... Olympus Digital Cameras

Canon Powershot SD450 E18 problem: The camera lense would not open and reported error code E18 on power-up and then would shut down.

When I powered down, the lense did not completely retract. I tried re-powering on but nothing happened. The camera is not getting any power. I figured the battery died so I re-charged it.

My DSC-H9 will not display stored pictures or video. When I push the button to switch from picture taking to picture viewing it shuts off. Changed battery, memory stick, did "reboot", pulled battery for 30 seconds. Nothing made any difference. I can plug in to PC and view or pull pictures off. It's like the mode button is also a power button.

I used the camera on Sunday, August 22nd. When I tried to power it up on Monday, August 23rd, nothing happened. I thought the battery was low, charged it overnight, and still nothing. I actually have 2 additional batteries, and none of them power the camera. I can't believe all 3 batteries would die at the same time.

I have a SVP T-100 camcorder which all of a sudden stopped working. What is happening is it keeps showing a red light indicating there is no power in the battery and when you connect to the mains it turns green but when you try switching on it goes red again and stays this way!! I have tried a new battery in it and the same thing...the fact that it wont even work from the mains indicates something wrong with the powering getting to the battery or camcorder... Please help.

Camera dying? It will powerup like normal. But when a CF card (tried different ones)is in the camera and you press the button to take a photo, the screen will either shut off clean or give a flash of scrambled image then shut off and freeze. The only way to reset is to remove the batteries. It is also draining the batteries in the few attempts to power it on. When no card is in there it will stay 'alive' for a bit longer but pressing any button on it and the lense will power down leaving
