Very good move to switch to rechargeable batteries, this camera swallow expensive regular batteries in a very short period of time.
Your camera is not receiving the energy from the batteries. Connecting it to the computer does not make any change as power is required from the batteries to communicate with the computer.
The problem with your camera could be a simple issue or a really bad condition.
I the first case, if you are able to open it, look for the connectors to the batteries. There could be a missing connection (may require some simple soldering). Check voltage and continuity with a voltmeter.
If there int any problem there, then you have a mayor issue in your camera and requires for you to decide from have it repaired at a camera shop, or on the other hand, to replace the camera.

My Power Shot SX130 IS wont turn on... I dont know why, yesterday was working and all the sudden today I tried to Power On and doesn't do anything. I changed the batteries .... HELP!



Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Focus error show up and can't take any pictures


Had "FOCUS ERROR" appear on my Finepix S9500. The lens seemed to be stuck at the extremity of focus range. I resorted to hitting the camera on a table while turning it off (because this is when it sounded as though the focus motor was trying to move the lens back). Guess what? It worked!!!!!

Wont power on...


If you're certain the battery is fine, the next thing to try would be the following. Pay particular attention to the little switches on your doors:

And if those techniques don't work, next thing to try would be fixes for a lens error (you mention it powers on and off. This is sometimes symptoms of a lens error):

Wont turn on


It may be the SD memory card causing the problem. I just bought a G7. When I turned it on without an SD card, no problem. I put it my old cheap SD card and it wont turn on. I take out the memory card and battery, then insert the Canon SD card and battery and turn it on, no problem.
Hope this helps someone.

P850 shuts itself off for no reason


Try using a liquid contact cleaner. I read about this fix on another site, worked great for me.
A product called DeoxIT in the U.S. is what was suggested, I am in Canada and can't get that here so I picked up a product from a company called NexxTech. Just a liquid contact cleaner.
Take out the battery of the camera. Put a few small drops of the contact cleaner on the power button and let it drip down into the switch. Rotate the on/off switch back and forth 5-10 times, put the battery back in and Voila! Fixed!
No more random on/off irritations, camera works just like it did before the problem arose a few weeks ago.
It worked great for me.
Good Luck!
