Getting change the batteries error
I am getting the above error message when ever turn on. The shutter turns on very briefly then camera switches off. I have changed the CR1220 battery and the AA. Still getting error
It's usually dirty battery terminals (usually negative), or battery corrosion when this occurs. In most cases it can be repaired by cleaning the contacts (use a Q-Tip and get the positive ones inside for good measure as well) with something like isopropyl alcohol (99% preferred, but 97% works) and that can fix it, but if that doesn't help then you need to use something like denatured alcohol. If neither of those works, you need a new battery cover (find a donor camera, the cost of the bare cover vs these commodity P&S high zoom cameras will kill any chance of doing the repair economically. I had to abandon my SX150IS due to the repair cost to replace a damaged front panel. The donors often have THE SAME PROBLEM!)
If that doesn't work, try better batteries, like Panasonic Eleloop Pro first and see if it rejects them. If it does, you may want to try the Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries (primary Lithium, $$). The runtime isn't anything close to a rechargeable cell or even the 2X 3V 123/CR2/2Cr3 6V primary options some early P&S models used, but these will satisfy stubborn cameras when all else fails. You can get a 4 pack for ~$8 and that will solve the issue when all else fails.
EOL WARNING: THE CATCH WITH CANON'S 2X AA BATTERY CAMERAS IS IT TENDS TO POINT TO A BOARD FAILURE AT THE COMPONENT LEVEL WHEN NOTHING ELSE HELPS :-(! Save the "dead" cells, as they will run other devices for a while.
This fix is to get a bit more time out of a dying camera that is confirmed to have a terminal failure which cannot be repaired economically. DO NOT USE IT FOR NE CRITICAL SHOOTS IF THIS IS THE ONLY SOLUTION THAT HELPS! Enjoy the extra time, and say goodbye to the camera when it completely fails. You may want a new one alongside the failing Canon.
The specific issue is the main board in these cameras are beginning to have component level issues with power management, and the time required to properly repair the fault costs more in time and labor then it costs to replace the cameras.
These kinds of problems are why the "AA" camera is dead; it's all about 6V Li-On rechargeable batteries today because they don't suddenly have hard failures like this where nothing can be done economically. At least with the modern ones which did away with this fatal failure point found on the 150/160, I can recycle the battery and probably revive the camera with a new battery!
