I have the same problem that just occurred with a SD400. Tried the battery in my newer SD1000 and it's not the battery. Noticed that there is a tiny tab that prevents the camera from coming on if the battery cover is open. Check that little black tab to make sure it didn't get broken off or damaged, otherwise it might be fooling the camera into thinking the cover is still open. That didn't solve my problem, but it's worth ruling out.

if it is a digical if so the batteries have to be rechargeable and be over 1000 because the rest just arnt good enough . because of the technolgy in the camara , and because of what it can do do . the batteries have to be the best . their will be more power comeing out of the camara and excceds the battereis. its like a mobile phone , the phone is a 16 volt batteri and you plug a 5 voult charger in the phone . it gets realy hot because their is insufficaint charger for the volt . we wiill have almost blew the charge on the batteris aswell as the connection on the camara or ie [phone]. leave for 24 hours and then try the rechargeable energizer 2000 plus is one of the best .replace the old for new and try the enegizers
Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...
Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.
Digital cameras drain lots of power for a short period. The best
batteries for digital camera are rechargable types. It is either you
are using normal alkaline batteries which are easily drained or your
rechrgable batteries are not properly charged. Try solving either of
these two problems.

Try putting in regular batteries and see if it will turn on. The rechargeable batteries might be over-taxed and won't recharge. My Olympus camera works just as good on regular batteries as on the rechargeable ones. It is easier to come up with regular batteries than having to always run to the docking station to recharge the original batteries. I hope this works for you.
Hey Dussan, Three camera's that might work for you are the Nikon P80, Panasonic DMC-FZ50K, and the Sony DSC-H50. All three of theses camera's have a 12x optical zoom and up, they are all 9 mega pixel and up, they all have movie mode, they all use lithium-ion batteries, and they are all around the same price as the Canon. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
go to the HP website and install the firmware on your camera. it contains the instructions for it, and they claim that it will solve the battery life issues. i haven't had this problem, but in searching for a solution for my problem, i ran across that solution.
Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. you need professional service to fix it.
Does your battery work with regular AA alkaline batteries ? They have higher voltage than NiMH rechargeable. I'm having a similar problem, just discovered today that my camera works fine with AA alkaline batteries.
