Having problems with your Canon Powershot SD450 / IXUS 55 Digital Camera ?

Batteries discharge quickly even if the camera isn't being used. I have three batteries and two are over one year old.

Answers :

\015\012It is recommended that if batteries are not going to be used for long periods they should be removed from the camera altogether during that time.
\015\012If you are referring to rechargeables the ability to retain charge is effected both by the age of the battery and the number of times it has been recharged.
\015\012Canon cameras are generally one of the better cameras in terms of being economic on power. It is likely that this problem is battery related and not camera related.
\015\012As it is also important not to mix old and new batteries together - I would recommend that you purchase new rechargeables. Three new rechargeables batteries in your Canon should resolve your problem and give the best results.

We have a 2 year old d40. The battery has started to drain very quickly (ordered and new one and it is the same....) It appears that the battery drains after it has been used once or twice - any ideas? Thanks

Battery Problems The Canon PowerShot A480 is sucking the life out of the batteries! I get about half a dozen shots and it says I need new batteries - I change to fully-charged ones and as soon as I put them in they are almost gone (that icon is flashing at me). I have used new rechargeble and old ones ... I've used two different rechargers ... I've tried leaving the batteries in until the red light goes out on the charger and I've also tried leaving the batteries in for a day or so past the red

I have had two digital cameras (the first an Ixus - the present a Powershot). After a couple of years the Ixus wore out batteries in 5 minutes - and buying new ones did not help. Now the same thing is happenng to my Powershot - which uses ordinary AA-batteries. Both cameras still take very good pictures - but a retailer told me that this is what happens to digital cameras after a while. Do i really have to by a new one every 3.rd year - or have anyone any suggestions?

Rechargeable batteries lose performance when they get older. A three year lifespan is not unusual. Note that your camera does not use "normal" AA batteries. It should be using rechargeable NiMH or disposable lithium AA's only, although alkaline (e.g. ... Canon Digital Cameras

I bought new batteries from local store (one from Walmart and one from Meijer) but both would not work in my Cybershot DSC-H55. On powering up, I get the message "For use with compatible battery only" then it shuts down. The battery that came with my camera still works fine. I thought I had bought bad batteries but I returned for exchange, and 2 replacement batteries from 2 different stores still shows the same error message.

It won't turn on even with a fully charged battery. What do I do? I've owned it for at least 5 years and have three batteries and a pentax charger that turns green when a battery is charged. I put the batteries in correctly. Now the camera will not turn on. My wife was using it on a trip when it happened. I can't seem to get it to turn on now despite trying everything I know and reading the manual. Any ideas for me. Is it possible that all three batteries are too old yet appearing to char

Battery/Power trouble My C-770 is 2 years old and I still have the original L1-10B batterys that came with it. The camera goes through periods of non-use so has not been used excessively. When I put in a newly charged battery the battery indicator says the battery is full, but then take one picture and the light blinks empty and usually dies with the lens out and the ISO numbers still on the screen. I switch the power button into the off position but it generally takes a min before it actuall

7 May 2010 Hi there, I have an Olympus camera that I bought in June 2007. I had a two-year guarantee, which ran out last year. Now my camera won?t come on. This happened once before but when I put in new batteries (although the batteries I was using were fairly new), it worked again. Now, however, I?ve had no low-battery warning light and one minute the camera was working, the next it had stopped. I?ve tried putting in new batteries (straight out of the packet) but it?s made no difference. Can y

Hi I bought an Exilim EX-Z850 a couple of years and had been quite pleased with it even though I don't use it very much. I took it a few days ago and tried to use it, but it would not start. I charge both bayyeries (one original and one spare). The camera does not start. When I insert the battery, I can see a quick green flash by the eye viewing window for a fraction of a second.

I have 17 grand children and one great grandchild so about a year ago I bought a VuPoint DV-M5056-VP and have yet a picture. First was a day when it went blank. Took it to three Wal-Mart stores including the one I bought it from. No one could tell me what went wrong, Suggested I throw it away and get another type of camera. One day it worked. Now my problem is those metal pieces that hold the batteries are falling out. I lost one so the camera is again not useful. I need an answer sent to

Brand new battery won't hold charge. Camera is three years old. I bought an extra battery when I bought the camera. They both seemed to go bad at the same time, so I recently bought two new lithium batteries, just like the originals. I'm having the same symptom--the charge lasts for only a few photos--maybe 50 without the flash.

If this happens even to new batteries, it may no longer be an issue with the batteries, but it can be an issue with the camera itself. check the maximum number of shots that the camera can take with the batteries per its specification. if it should p ...

Rollei dp 6200 - I have problems with trying to charge the battery. It rapidly loses the charge - within a copule of hours one third of the charge is lost and within 24 - 36 hours it is completely falt. This ia all without using the camera. I have changed the memory card as Rollei Service told me that the camera does not support 1GB, but even with 512MB it is the same. This has been going on for a couple of years at least and the original camera was replaced by Rollei within the first two years

So I took the family to Luray Caverns in Virginia last week, and took lots of pictures of my wife and kids in the caverns. As my six year old leaned over the "fried eggs" formation, my Canon A570is beeped. The screen showed the battery was running low, and then the dreaded "memory card error" came up. Are all my pics lost, or is there a way to recover them. I'm using rechargeable batteries, and have not checked the CR1220 internal battery. I'm also using a 4 year old class 2 - 2Gb SD card.

Don't worry, your lost photos that are very precious can be recovered with ease. I would like to introduce you a very good data Recovery software, called tenorshare data recovery which can be used to recover images from SD card and from other storage ... Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

My Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H7has bought up an issue where it brings up an 'usb connecting' screen for one or two seconds occasionally when using the camera. This does not effect the photo taking quality at all, it just means I have to wait for the screen to clear. Do I have to get a tech. to fix it, or can it be done in camera. 2 years old and out of warranty. Very annoying. Any thoughts. Thanks, Ian.

You can't use it and it you can't turn it off all the way without pulling the battery out. The screen doesn't light up or anything. The camera is totally useless now.
