You should send the camera with the battery for service to find out if there is a defect on any internal circuit boards, or if the fault is actually the battery. There is no reliable way for you to determine this yourself, unless you have the proper setup and training to service these cameras.

Change battery pack


How old is your battery? The rechargeable LI-ion battery is only meant to last a couple years at most. If your battery is a couple years old (or longer) it's probably time to consider a new battery.

Fortunately, due to the popularity of Canon cameras, generic versions of the NB-4L battery for your camera are widely available. This makes them very inexpensive. Recommend looking for one on Amazon with good user ratings. Here's some suggestions.

Sounds like you might not be in Automatic mode. Press the Func/Set button, then right/left to select Auto. Then press Func/Set to exit the selection. Then try the camera.

My Canon Powershot SD880 is emitting smoke.


This appears to be a common problem with Canon SD series cameras and especially common with the SD880. Canon must be aware of the problem, and since they have not recalled the cameras they must think it is not a fire/injury hazard. Distribution of the SD880 was suddenly stopped despite excellent reviews. If enough of us tell Canon we want these cameras fixed or replaced, even if they are out of warranty, maybe they will FixUs!

I opened up my battery pack, it smelled like smoke


Is your battery pack genuine? Often non-genuine batteries wont charge correctly and have been known to burn or short out. If it is genuine however you should have the camera, charger and battery checked out by Canon for any potential shortages etc. Li-ion batteries can be dangerous to mess around with, be careful when pulling it apart.

Camara won't come on


It could be the batteries. To be sure about it, try your batteries in another appropriate appliance. Good luck!
