I used my camera immediatley yesterday upon receipt. I installed the canon batteries. I turned it ff for 20 minutes. Returned and could not get it to turn on again. I bought a charger and rechargable batteries Ni-MH. Charged them last night and the camera still will not turn on. Any help is appreciated. I have a wedding to go to this afternoon!!

"Error codes 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 and 80: Shooting is not possible due to an error. Turn the camera off and on again or re-install the battery. Operate the power switch, remove and install the battery pack again, or use a Canon lens (p.32, 28)."
If your digital camera shuts off sporadically or begins to malfunction, the fix could be as simple as replacing your batteries!
I was using AA rechargeable batteries when my camera starting acting up. My husband suggested that the batteries might be bad. While they were not new, they had only taken about 20 recharges over the years. I mistakenly thought they'd last for hundreds of charges despite age. As it turns out, rechargeable batteries have a shelf life.
Also, I had been storing my rechargeable batteries in the camera between uses. Remember, it is wise to remove any type of battery from the device if it will not
be used for an extended period. This should help to extend the life cycle of your batteries.
Result: Upon installation of new, freshly-charged rechargeable batteries, my camera worked perfectly.
Sorry to hear about this. I have a similar camera and have been racking my brain about this...
My only thought...are you using the same battery charger? Perhaps the battery charger is to blame. You may be out of battery on both batteries. When you install the battery, does ANYTHING happen? Does it say, LOW Battery or CHANGE the battery? Or is it totally black? If nothing happens at all, you should probably contact Canon directly. Or purchase a new charger and see if that fixes the problem.

The most likely problem is that the battery has deteriorated with normal use. Plug in the phone for at least 20 minutes do not worry if it doesn't light up immediatley and don't attempt to turn it on. Try again after 20 or more minutes and if not a new battery might well be the best solution.
Your camera's DC/DC board is most likely shorted out. This is causing the battery to heat up. Take your battery out immediatley, and do not reintall it. Leaving the battery in will most likely ruin it, and possibly melt the battery and parts of the camera. Your camera needs professional service. You can expect to pay between $150 and $200 to fix this problem.
Try to use fresh and new batteries on the camera and turn it on. Usually, when cameras are used outside, chances are, the lens gets stuck by dust or dirt build up between the lens' base and the camera. Upon installing new batteries, hold your camera with your right hand with the lens facing the ground. Then as you turn on the camera's power button, hit the base of the camera to your left palm.
Did you figure this out? I would send it back asap so your warranty can cover the problem. Also run over to Ritz camera or another camera store to figure if they can help. Ask for their Canon expert. I hope this helps.
Try replacing the date/time battery located in the main battery compartment. Also, simultaneously remove the lens. This will be like a master reboot for the camera. Replace the date/time coin battery, the main battery (freshly charged) and lastly the lens.
If this doesn't work, send it in for service. If you are just slightly beyond your one year warranty, Canon may allow a grace period especially if you can provide a receipt. If you can't find a receipt, give them the approximate date of purchase when you send in the camera. You will need to call them or set up service online.
