Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

SOURCE: SD600, the camera time resets everytime i turn it

There's a little battery in the camera under where the tripod mount is. Make sure your camera is out of warranty before attempting any repairs. Opening the case will void your warranty. Do this at your own risk. 
1) Remove all six screws from the outside of the case.  2) You'll need to loosen the LCD panel, there are two little tabs holding the panel, and one screw up by the speaker (photo/movie/view) switch.  3) Remove the screw by the speaker, this will give you access under the LCD. Do not unhook the LCD cables.  4) Now under the LCD panel you should see a screw that connects the metal backplate with the tripod mount, remove that screw.  5) On the bottom, on the main motherboard, there's another screw holding the tripod mount in.  6) After removing the tripod mount, you should see a battery under the LCD cable.  7) On the main motherboard, gently (GENTLY) remove the large LCD cable and pull it through to the other side.  8) You should now see the battery pretty clearly.  9) Replace the battery. MS614X 10) Reverse the steps.

Lens error; restart camera


Try one of these two fixes, if they dont work for you follow the link below for further troubleshooting.

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html


Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
Fix #2: If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. Error E30 (for older Canon's) means that you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the SD card and turn it on one last time

Battery is recharged and full but camera says to replace battery pack


How old is the battery? It's only meant to last a couple years at most. If it's that age, time to consider a new battery. Fortunately, generic NB-4L batteries are very inexpensive these days. Here's some examples. Just make sure to read the buyer reviews as some generics are better than others.

It doesn't want to turn on for nothing i recharged da battery over nd over nd it still dont want to turn on


I would suggest trying another battery. If still no luck, I'm afraid you have a dead camera. In this case it might be worth selling it for spares on ebay etc.

Canon ixus 60


The ixus 60 is also known as the SD600. It's actually quite a good camera. It uses the "NB-4L" battery. You'll need a charger for your camera's battery. Simply remove and place the battery in the charger and plug it in the wall. If you don't have a charger, generic ones are very inexpensive (so are the generic replacement batteries):

Canon SD600 lens jam


I followed the directions contained in http://www.avh.dds.nl/Fix-Canon-SD600-Lens-Error/ and by disassembling the camera and turning the rotor just a little bit (page 4 of the instructions), it freed up the lens and it is now working perfectly! The camera had been put down on the lens as the lens was retracting and I assume that jammed the retract mechanism. While the camera was open, I blew out whatever dust/dirt was there (didn't see much). The fix took me probably 20-30 minutes, and I am very pleased with myself!
