I just bought a Canon Powershot G6 and I wanted to buy some extra batteries but they're very expensive. I looked on eBay and found generic ones for a fraction of the amount but I'm a little leery about putting crap in a camera that I just spent a lot of money on. Does anyone have any experience with generic battery packs for digicams that they could share?

That likely wouldn't fix it now. The cheap generic batteries sometimes cause this problem. Let me make a suggestion, if you go to camerasand parts.com they only charge $69 to totally service the camera up, that includes the power problem too and also the shipping back. The good thing is that since you have a power problem, they'll swap out your battery for you too if that was the problem. Just thought to mention that as a suggestion, they're amazing if you need help with a Canon Powershot Digital Camera. If things don't work out with the seller, here's a great option and maybe the seller will pitch in to have it serviced up.
First of all, have you tried pressing the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera? Next, if your camera's battery is more than a couple years old, it's time for a new battery. Fortunately, inexpensive generic versions of the NB-4L are widely available these days. Here's some from Amazon. Read the user reviews as some generics are better than others. And if your charger truly has shorted out (again I'd check the battery first), here's some generic chargers from Amazon.
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):
