This sounds like there is an internal energy conflict. check the following:
- Have you used a new battery to try it out? make sure it is the battery indicated by the manufacturer, yes it does make a difference.
- Is the door that holds the battery firm? if it is wobbly could be messing with the energy that is being giving to the camera
For repair check them out
make sure you describe your problem to them
and they also include a camera cleaning, which all cameras could use

A 4 gb memory card is beyond the capacity of your Cannon A540. It is too large. I would stick with a 1 gb card in that camera.

Powershot a540 "cannon"

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 mention that your batteries aren'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. Please check the following link for more info:
