Know this is an old post but... Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mentioned that your batteries weren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status.

You probably just need to format the card in the camera. This will completely erase it so download any pictures you want to save first.

Canon SD870 IS. Lense Error. Would not retract on power-down. Lense error reported when retracting zoom.
Noticed the rectangular frame about the lens was rotated off center. Manually rotated (squared-up) the lens rectangle while repeatedly powering the camera on and off. Modulating the power allowed for easier rotation of the rectangular lens frame.
Once the lens frame was square with the body of the camera, the lens completely retracted on power-down, and also zoomed in/out without error.

What you have here on your SD1000 is just a power problem. It happens sometimes on digital cameras. It's unfortunate, but these things do happen. You would need to get the camera fixed which is a good idea considering what a great little camera that is. The site that I'd go to for help with a Canon Powershot would be www.camerasandparts.com The only thing they fix is the Canon Powershot Cameras and they happen to be excellent for service on these. The deal with them, and this is right on their site for your model, they perform the repair with both parts and labor included, you get all of the service for your model included, they give you a great 90 day warranty on anything on your camera for 90 days, and they include priority shipping going back. For your model that all runs $79. They're the place for help with the Powershot Cameras, your problem and service package is available on their site. I hope that will help you with it.
