Yes, you are probably right. A short within the camera could make it "un-startable. Take it to a local electronist or a Canon dealer and they will help you solve this problem. Also check if the batteries are good and fully charged. Some new batteries could be faulty from the factory.

SOURCE: Trying to install software for Canon Powershot

Skip the installing of any software, unless you like the Canon editing or viewing software, if that is on the cd.
Get a card reader for this machine, and skip any drivers whatsoever.
By using a card reader/writer it is not necessary to get any software or drivers on your machine from Canon. The card reader will read as another drive.

Black screen on my Canon PowerShot A640


I had this problem too. Try the "DISP" button (bottom left on the display side of the camera. It allows you several viewing options, and is easy to accidentally hit and turn the LCD screen "off."

Videos and photos not all readable by computer when taken on Canon PowerShot A640


You will likely need to use the software that came with the Canon powershot vs. just trying to download via the default (scanner and camera wizard for example) program. If you are doing this already, then I don't know why it is not transferring them over to the computer properly, but if you are not using the Canon Zoombrowser software, you should make sure you load the cd that came with it.

Hope this helps!
