A1400 battery icon keeps blinking red with new batteries


New alkalines checked on tester- all OK



Hi oldshooter!


Thank you for posting on our forum!


Try removing the batteries, then cleaning the contacts in the battery compartment and on the battery door.  If the icon is still showing with fresh batteries, then your PowerShot A1400 will need to be repaired.  To start the repair process, you'll need to complete a Repair Request on our website.


If the camera is more than a year old, you may participate in the Canon Loyalty Program instead.  The Canon Loyalty Program option allows you to replace your current camera for a discounted fee, plus shipping.  The original non-functioning camera would then be returned to Canon USA for recycling using a prepaid shipping label that would be provided.  

If you would like to take part in this option, please call our Sales Department at (800) OK CANON (800-652-2666) seven days a week, 8am to Midnight.  Let them know you have been working with online support and the Canon Loyalty Program was offered.  Be sure to have your serial number for your camera at the time of your call.
