You need to use 2100 mAH or 2300 mAh rechargeable batteries - alkaline batteries will not maintain the high level of power required.

Lin, I'm afraid you are right. The camera should work on 4 AA Alkaline or NiMH rechargeable batteries. They give about 1,5 V maximal. The Li iOn batteries, almost deliver 2 V each. 4 x 1,5 (6) or 4 x 2 (8) gives a difference of 2 V. that is almost 33% to much.
But before you panic, Please first check if the contacts in the camera are clean and shiny. You can clean them (if necessary) with a dry cloth or cotton swab. Don't use anything sharp in or close to a camera.
Then insert new alkaline or NiMH barrettes, as shown in the manual and switch it on.
If it still does not work, contact a Canon certified repair centre and tell them what you did with the batteries and ask them if the camera is worth repairing.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

If the camera will not power up then please check the following:
1. That the batteries are inserted correctly. Two should be facing upwards and two downwards. With the camera facing you (upside down) then the first battery on the left should have the positive terminal up, the second down, third up and last one down. If this does not work then ensure the slider switch to close the battery cover is fully closed - sometimes this sticks - as this closes a microswitch. If the camera still does not work then a fuse will have blown in the camera. This would be a very expensive repair. Hope this helps

This will either be the setting on the DISP button (back of camera) or a failure of the CCD (image processor). If the pressing of the DISP button does not restore the picture then it will be a CCD failure. The CCD failure was a common fault with the Canon A cameras and Canon repaired these free of charge up until a couple of years ago. This can be replaced by a Canon repair centre, however it will be costly. Hope this helps.

I would take it back to where you bought it, it should still be under warranty. Sounds like a bad rear image sensor. If your really handy with tools, you can find how to repair it on youtube. But I would take it back to the seller. Now if you bought it used, I would try United Camera. I have used United Camera before and found them to be really good.

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you
