I just purchased this camera not too long ago and it worked perfectly fine. However, 2 or 3 days ago it stopped working and it wont turn on. It automatically turns itself off even though it has new charged batteries!And a red and green light begin to flash! what is the problem!!?? im not a electronic expert so PLEASE help!!
I've experienced a very similar problem. I took our camera to a Bridal shower with 2 sets of freshly charged (I validated the charge) NIMH rechargeables plus a set of new alkalines. Regardless of which batteries I used, the camera indicated low battery after one or two pictures were taken, if it would take one at all. Its NOT a battery problem in my case.
I had the same problem and i called up cutomer support on 1300 659 678 (Australia) and they said that the problem may lie in your batteries. It was advised that you use Lithium batteries, and to avoid use of Alkaline, since they dont have the required power to operate the camera which is why it turns off right away.
As to what type of rechageable batterires to use i am not sure, i think it was Nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) batteries.
Hope this solves your problem.

1. check the fuse box and check every fuse all of the are not blown up.
2. check the battery wires and check the battery have enough charge in it.
3. check the plugs
if all of these things work correctly then it will start working again.
Very odd that both cameras would stop working at the same time, has someone else abused them?
Removeing the batterys for a while is a good enought reset, check the battery connectors and contact your dealer if they both have warranty you will get them repaired or replaced for free. other than that I can recommend you a repair man if you provide me the city you live in.
There is a one-year warranty on the camera if you purchased it new. Contact your regional Canon support facility, and they will be able to give you your options for getting the camera repaired under warranty.
I bought this model several months ago and it was working great up until Christmas time. For some reason it just stopped working. I couldn't get it to turn on OR sometimes it would turn on after several attempts. I kept changing the batteries and sometimes that would work, but it was more or less random successes. I found this link on FixYa :
http://wwwuk.kodak.com/global/en/service/batteries/batteryDigCamChart.jhtml?camera=C813 I was using generic batteries (Philips) which I bought in bulk from a discount tech store and these batteries were working in the camera since I bought it. The batteries were new; just generic. By coincidence I ended up buying KODAK branded alkaline batteries from the same store. I replaced the older generic ones with the KODAK batteries and the camera came back to life! I'll leave it off for a day and see if it turns on tomorrow.
The camera was working fine 5 days ago. Yesterday when I tried to switch it on, I assumed that the battery was flat so I charged it but when fully charged the camera still won't switch on. i Please help!
Very good in checking if your computers' USB ports are working. Now that you know that your computer's USB ports are working, try your USB device on his computer and check if it'll work there. If it also doesn't work there, then it'll be your USB device that's not being read.
