My cannon A570 was working fine. Then all of a sudden it would turn on and turn off right away so I changed the batteries. This did not help. The lens was opening very slowly. Then it wouldn't open again. I received a change battery message which was odd but changed the batteries again. (they were pretty hot) Once I changed them it worked again for a second but now it wont turn on. Any suggestions?

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.

I have had my S9600 for 4 years, for most of that time, when i changed the batteries, all my settings remained the same. Now, when i change the batteries, every setting has returned to factory standard (stupid beeps and whirring noises, no date etc) and i have to reset everything. The user manual has no mention of an internal battery, but i figure there must be one and it now needs replacing. How do I do this?
