You have to try another battery to know for sure if it is bad. I have three batteries so that I can rotate while I am working with the camera.

How to remove the lens of the Canon PowerShot Pro1 Digital Camera? If it cannot remove, how can I disassembly the front of the camera with the lens? And is there are some pictures and graphics to show

Does not matter how you remove the lens, because once you got it of, you never can get it back on, so your camera can use it. Assembling a camera lens is a very delicate job, and only the slightest miss alignment makes a lens worthless. This kind of repairs should be done in a Canon certified repair centre. But first ask what it will cost, but if it costs more then a new camera, you better start saving for a new camera. The cameras becoming better and better every year, and in the same time they are cheaper and cheaper.

Sorry, but if you really want to try it yourself, because you don't mind what the result will be, please look on the site fixit dot com. The take apart all kinds of electronic equipment. (they don't show how to put it together)

My Canon Powershot Pro1 will not accept the memory card. The screen flashes "Memory Card Error" every time I turn it on.

Your camera uses a Compact Flash card so it's asking you to format the card.
Here is a diagram to show you were to go and the process for formatting the memory card

When the LCD screen is open the viewfinder will switch of and when it is closed the viewfinder will switch on. You can switch between the two by pressing Monitor select button to the left of the Eyepiece (Viewfinder). as you look at the back of the camera.
