My Canon A570IS recognizes the new batteries and turns on, but within seconds the camera turns off and blinks ''change the batteries''. I am unsure the reason for this and if possible would like an explanation. thank you for your help!

No need to attention for it,just go on ,I have happen to this problem like this for several model of cameras,but it is just a OS mislead error sometime.By the way,confirm your battery for Canon PowerShot A570 IS is installed.
This could be a tricky one, the availability of parts will depend on the policy in the country that you live in.
You should try Canon directly first, if they will not supply then you could try a local camera repairer who may have a good second hand one or be able to order the part for you.
If you have extended warranty coverage send it back. There are no user serviceable parts in a digital camera. Canon has been known in the past to cover some of their repairs if they turn out to be common. They also will usually give the option to customers to buy a refurbished camera of similar value in exchange for the broken camera at price that would be below the cost of actually repairing their camera.
Digital cameras are very complex and in many ways very fragile. I don't usually recommend extended warrant coverageexcept for digital camera's, if you can get it for the right price and are buying from a store you trust, its a good idea. You have to do your own math to see if this works for you.
Norton antivirus or antispam maybe thinking your driver is a virus so it is disabling it and prevent it from working correctly. In order to be sure, disable your norton 360. and reinstall the drivers for your canon. If it worked correctly, the problem is 100% from norton 360.
In this case you have to call canon and norton tech support to help you.
Before you call tech support, try change the security level to a lower setting and try again
**** a very common problem with most cameras. There hasn't been much of a solution for this problem except to try to wiggle the lens zoom while pushing and holding the power button. Also make sure you have brand new batteries installed. Even the slightest dead battery will cause a problem.
I have a a570 IS that the lense locked out on. fixing it was going to be the same price as buying new, so I took mine apart and after two tries, i fixed it. I would be willing to take a look at it for a heck of a lot cheaper than Canon can if your willing.
