If you are certain that you are understanding the functions and are doing everything right according to the book then Contact customer support at Canon- if you have had it only a short while they should replace it

I have the same problem with a Canon Powershot s20. Bought approx 5 years ago...

Many digital cameras (eg Samsung D53, Nikon 2100) have extremely poor battery life with alkaline batteries (under 20 shots!). Sometimes they won't even take a single picture.

Try using rechargeable batteries or "oxyride" disposable batteries. They perform infinately better.

Premature Failure of Canon Powershot A-460 Digital Camara

With all due respect, pasting a copy of your letter of complaint on this site is of no consequence. It is taking up time to try and see if there is a question within it and there is clearly not.
Canon Powershot A-460 is not exactly a top of the range device and two years of service is twice the warranty period.

Sony DSC H5 runs down batteries very rapidly. Much faster than when the camera was originally purchased. A pair of new AA batteries only lasts for 12 - 24 photos. Brand new rechargeables fully charged are...

Hi there please reset the camera 1st . THen pair your battery with your camera. Go in menu then battery type option. Select the type of a battery. After that save the setting. Now try . If you face the same problem then the camera internal power transformer are damaged or week. So you need to replace that transformer after that it will start work properly. You use that camera so long, that's why there is a chance of that damaged. Thanks if its helpful then rating me.

Canon zoombrowser Ex downloading problem

Go to the "Add and Remove Programs" in your Control panel.
Do a "Change" and do the 'repair program' utility.
That should fix it, good as new.
If that is not a possible option, try uninstalling. (if there is no "Change" and 'repair program') then Run the normal uninstall program.

The camera seems to have these problems, and I think its because the power switch is on when the camers is being charged.
