Re: A570 Low Battery/Canon selling Cameras that it knows are defective!!

I have the a570 and the battery indicator light would come on immediately after I put in newly recharged Sanyo Eneloop batteries. I saw several posts on this problem with the following solutions that have worked for me.

1. Ignore the indicator and just keep taking pictures. I did this and would get 200+ pics with frequent use of pic review and flash. However I later saw another post and now follow the procedure in #2.

2. After you put the batteries in the camera you push them down a few times before closing the battery door. This has worked for me. The indicator light no longer comes on right after putting in new batteries.

The problem at least with my camera is either the contacts or the battery door but regardless its an easy fix and doesn't seem to affect the life of the batteries. I agree though this is a defect.
