Question about Canon PowerShot A300 Digital Camera
When I turn on my PowerShot A300 I get a black screen and a "change battery pack" message even with brand new batteries. Shortly thereafter, the camera shuts off. Any ideas are appreciated. P.S. This camera has never been dropped or abused in any way.
Yes, I have the same problem with black image.
I shall post a comment when things are done .
Boy ! it took a load from my mind
Thanks a lot.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. Take a picture and see if it is also black. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links 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 V2/300/400/430/500, IXY Digital 200a/300a/400/450/500
The little 3 volt button battery is the clock battery for the camera. It keeps track of date and time.
