Get a high capacity Nickel Cadmium or nickel metal hydrite rechargable battery for best results. Don't go below 1500mah ratings. You may also turn off the LCD light to save on power, just use the built in viewfinder.

I have the same problem with a Canon Powershot s20. Bought approx 5 years ago...

Many digital cameras (eg Samsung D53, Nikon 2100) have extremely poor battery life with alkaline batteries (under 20 shots!). Sometimes they won't even take a single picture.

Try using rechargeable batteries or "oxyride" disposable batteries. They perform infinately better.

My Canon IXUS430 is only showing a black screen,

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free worldwide, and may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check this link for more info.

Applicable cameras include: A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/V3/300/400/430/500/II/IIs, IXY Digital 200a/300a/320/400/450/500/30/30a

Dose it have to have lithium batteries

Yes it is recommended, because they last longer. If you put in regular batteries in you might get 12 exposures. Lithium's will give you double the exposure.

Batteries do not last long. even with recharge batteries

You must take a lot of flash shots. Try using Energizer Ultimate Lithium Batteries. They cost more but they last up to eight times longer. They're 1/3 lighter and they don't discharge while they're just sitting there like other batteries do.

Canon PowerShot A630 power problem: NiMH batteries no longer work

I dont agree, I have tried several different batterie types and the batteries are draining almost instantly with the camera and they are not actually being drained. I think the camera itself is at the end of its I have used rechargeable batteries for the last few years and now they wont even show as being charged on the camera. It stinks Im in your same spot batteries are lasting even the brand new lithium has nothing to do with the battery "juice" but something with the canon supply power not recognizing/recieving the juice. Im not a canon expert, but I think the problem is more than the battery here Steve and im confused at the solution as well.
