Question about Canon Cameras
If the camera
has recently been dropped it may have lens damage that is preventing it
from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped, your problem may be due
to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can
prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.
Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and
wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries, place them back in the camera, and give them a good
charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.

Digital cameras use batteries p very quickly. Some batteries last longer than others. I buy large multi packs at the big box store near me. When you say two uses, do you mean just two pictures or two uses taking several pictures? You can go to your cameras menu and navigate through it to adjust several of the settings which will save power. You should also be sure that your battery setting is correct while you are there.
Look through your manual to read about the menu settings and battery usage.
