Hi there We have a Canon Powershot A570IS digital camera, about a month old. Since changing the batteries once, the camera "low battery" warning light blinks every time the camera is switched on, and then it just cuts out with a "change the batteries" message.

From the start, the camera has been very heavy on batteries, both rechargaeble and non-rechargeable. I am told that this camera is known to have a fault. Is this so? As per my previous mail, when switching on I can access old photos, the shutter button does not depress, the screen goes blank and the camera switches off. I have changed batteries many times. Sometimes doing so gives me three or four more shots before it switches off again.

I've had my Olympus FE-340 for 3 years, and I've never had any problems with it before. Now, whenever I try to zoom in, the camera takes white pictures or pictures with streaks in them. I've tried reseting the camera, changing the battery, changing the picture card, switching settings, and turning the flash on and off. Is there any way to fix the white/streaky pictures? Or, does this mean that my camera will no longer work when I try to zoom in?
