Lens Error Pertaining to my Canon Power Shot A590 IS: when the power is turned on, I am receiving an "Lens error, Restart Camera" malfunction. I turned the camera off and back on; still same issue. I also removed the batteries; still the same issues. What is your recommendation?

My Canon PowerShot SD780 IS will not turn on. I purchased another battery to make sure that wasn't the problem and it isn't. I have tried pressing the power button and OK button simultaneously for a few seconds and that hasn't helped. The power light doesn't turn on, the lens doesn't open, it doesn't even beep. I desperately need help and would really appreciate any advice. Thanks, Vanessa A.

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.

I have a canon SD1100 I just purchased and after a few minutes the camera will not shut off, the power button won't work and I have to open the battery cover to turn it off. Somehow this completely drains the battery too every time even if it was just charged. Also the camera turns itself on by itself about 10 minutes after you put the battery in it and once again you can't turn it off. I got another battery and the same thing happens. Otherwise it works fine.
If this is a new camera, you should be running back to the store to return it. ... Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera
