Hey, the IXUS 850 IS doesn't take the standard AA batteries! It has a proprietary Li-ion battery pack that can be charged using the provided external battery charger unit.

On?Off switch failure


Not sure the A3300 has two AA sized batteries, but if it had:
Sure your batteries are still tip top?
Try two new AA sized NiMH rechargeable batteries or if you have some new alkaline batteries, put them in. the alkaline batteries won't last long, but it it could hint if the camera is still working and worth buying new rechargeables.
AA manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries cannot be used with this camera.
But even if it has one battery, check the battery.
Read other parts about batteries, in other help text I wrote for other users.

Camera keeps saying to replace batteries even though new ones that have been checked with a meter and are OK are installed.


Are they the correct type of batteries? Use only AA-size Alkaline or Canon AA-size NiMH batteries.

I have had two digital cameras (the first an Ixus - the present a Powershot). After a couple of years the Ixus wore out batteries in 5 minutes - and buying new ones did not help. Now the same thing is...


Rechargeable batteries lose performance when they get older. A three year lifespan is not unusual. Note that your camera does not use "normal" AA batteries. It should be using rechargeable NiMH or disposable lithium AA's only, although alkaline (e.g. regular Duracell) can be used but will run flat very quickly. Anything else will either run flat far too quickly or will provide a false battery charge level indication.

Canon Digital IXUS 850 IS how to use as webcam?


The IXUS 850 IS is designed to store still images (and incidentally, videos) to memory. It is not designed to stream live video to another device.

I know that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Canon sd800 won't turn on like the battery is dead


Hi,

If the batteries run down completely while the camera is still open, it may not start up again when new batteries are installed. But if you remove the memory card, then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life.
Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries (if you still have your instruction manual, open it to the "batteries" section. Pretty sure you'll see a statement similar to what I've just said).
check whether your batteries are actually making contact with the battery posts, and that these posts are clean. If not, bend the posts up/down a little, and maybe clean them with a little rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip

Thank you

I decided to send you this from the Canon website to see if this helps: 
Issue: What are the specifications for batteries that I can use in my camera?
Solution: Recommended AA batteries for your camera.

What types of AA batteries can I use? Canon rechargeable (NiMH) batteries For the best results, we recommend using Canon rechargeable (NiMH) batteries. Rechargeable batteries provide the best performance and are the most economical choice.
battery_charger_kit_cbk4_300.jpgThe Canon Battery & Charger Kit includes a battery charger and four rechargeable AA-size NiMH (nickel metal hydride) batteries. The battery kit can be purchase from the Canon eStore.
AA alkaline batteries AA alkaline batteries such as those from Energizer or Duracell will provide the best performance for non-rechargeable batteries.
  • ALL AA-based PowerShot digital cameras (including A Series and S5 IS / SX100 IS-type):"Never use manganese (non-alkaline) batteries."
  • Since the performance of alkaline batteries may differ according to brand, the operating time of the batteries you purchase may not be as long as the batteries that came with the camera.
Precautions:
  • Camera operating time may shorten at low temperatures when alkaline batteries are used. Also due to their specifications, alkaline batteries may expire faster than NiMH batteries. If you are using the camera in cold areas or for a long time, we recommend using Canon AA-size NiMH Battery Kit (a four piece set).
  • While it is possible to use AA-size nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries, performance is unreliable and their use is not recommended.
  • Never mix unused and partially used batteries. Always load two or four (depending on camera model) fresh (or fully recharged) batteries at the same time.
  • Be careful to load the batteries with their positive (+) and negative (-) ends in the right direction.
  • Never mix batteries of different types or from different manufacturers. All batteries should be identical.
  • Before inserting the batteries, wipe the battery terminals well with a dry cloth. Oil from ones skin or other dirt may cause a considerable reduction in the number of recordable images or reduced usage time.
  • Battery performance deteriorates at low temperatures (especially with alkaline batteries). If you are using the camera in cold areas and batteries are running down faster than they should, you may be able to restore performance by placing batteries in an inner pocket to warm them up prior to use. But be careful that you don't put the batteries into a pocket together with a metal key chain or other metallic objects, as these objects may cause batteries to short-circuit.
  • If you do not plan to use the camera for a long time, remove the batteries from the camera and store them in a safe place. Batteries may leak and damage the camera if left installed during prolonged periods of non-use.
WARNING
Never use damaged batteries or batteries whose outer seal is completely or partially missing or peeled off, as there is risk that such batteries may leak, overheat, or burst. Always check the seals on store-bought batteries before loading them, as some batteries may come with defective seals. Do not use batteries with defective seals.
