I asked about this before but still have the same problem. Hope someone can help. I have a Canon Power Shot A 570 digital camera which keeps telling me to change the batteries. I just bought new ones and it's still the same. I searched on the net about this and a lot of people with this camera complain about the same thing.Other then sending it to the company is there anything I can do...

Did you try emailing their tech support?

Are these the rechargeable batteries?

They are rechargeable and very good ones...

I was reading that this is a common problem with this camera but have yet to find a solution.
How many shots can you make with a re-charge?
How many more shots with the low battery indicator on?
It seems this camera will drain batteries when left in camera for only a couple of days.
You could have bad battery contact terminals, sometime by just cleaning them will help.
Some have bent out the contacts with a small screwdriver and this also helped.
I was reading something about re-setting your camera with new batteries,
think it was like this...take batteries out and push power button for at about 30 seconds.
I would try this first.
