Are those NiMH batteries? Have you tried resetting the camera? If no standard way, just take out batteries for a few minutes, the more the merrier, let the tension build, and replace them. Try tapping on the lens area, it might loose something up. Best I can do, know it aint much ;] Good luck!

I had the same thing with my camera. I think it is due to the lens mechanism. It is stuck in one position and thus disabled all other functions on the camera. Try to get the lens un-stuck...

I tried Option No.1 successfully when my Panasonic DMC-FZ7K froze once:
1. Try turning the camera on with the battery inserted.
2. Now remove the battery while the camera is on.
3. Flip the switch on the camera to off, then insert a fully charged battery. (Make sure that the battery's orientation is correct. Also make sure that the battery being used is not damaged).
4. Now flip the camera's switch to ON again.
Option No. 2:
If you can open the Setup menu then the camera can be reset which might help:
Turn on the camera.
1. Press MENU SET.
2. Press the left arrow button.
3. Press the down arrow button.
4. Press the right arrow button.
5. Now, press the up arrow button several times until the menu item named RESET is highlighted. Push the right arrow button and then select and set YES when the camera asks to be reset.

You have a bad button board . This is a single board with a series of small button switches that control all these functions. Most repair shop will charge around 75.00 to fix.

If the menus come on but there is no video or picture from the lens, that is usually the CCD which is a sensor in the camera that picks up the image. If you need to have it fixed, it's only $79 total for the parts, labor, the servicing for the camera included and even the shipping back. Go to: www.CamerasAndParts.com They just service these Canon Powershots exclusively and they are excellent for service on these. Your exact issue is on their site, it's $79 for everything and they do superb work on these models. I hope that helps, good luck with the problem.
