Re: BATTERY FOR THIS MODLE WILL NOT HOLD A CHARGE WHY?
Try a differnt battery. Some batteries are bad right off the shelf. Keep the camera out of direct sunlight as this seems to drain my batteries faster than anything. Write back with more details of your problem if this doesn't help.

batteries don't have a life forever. And no one can predict the life time of a battery.
So many factors influence the lifetime. But if it is draining very fast, this mostly means it has reached the end of life. If the camera does not get excessive hot, it has nothing to do with the camera. It is just you need a new battery.
To keep a battery in shape for a longer time you should charge it also when the camera is not used. Like at least 4 times a year. Always charge the battery a day before you plan to use it. Don't over charge, like charging it every day. Don't leave it in the bright sun or on a hot place.
A new battery, should be charged and discharged a few times, before it gets a full charge.
The "New" battery you bought, could be in stock for a long time. Special when you could buy it very cheap.
Perhaps in a few days you say, he the battery works fine now. But if you did charge it 3 or more times and it still does not hold a charge. send the battery back (I hope you bought one with warranty)
if this happens even to new batteries, it may no longer be an issue with the batteries, but it can be an issue with the camera itself. check the maximum number of shots that the camera can take with the batteries per its specification. if it should produce more, it would be a good ide ato check with Canon to have the camera checked.
The best thing I EVER bought for my Olympus was the Re-chargeable Lithium Ion battery. The worst thing I did was buy an off brand. That was a waste. I ended up getting the more expensive brand Olympus recommended and all was GREAT again!! 1,000's of pictures later and they still work great. Good Luck
Go to menus and check for the kind of battery you have as against what is listed in your menus. Make sure it is set correctly. Also you can try to set all menus to default, or reset all or something like that.
