I have the powershot a3300-is with the same problem. I semi-fixed a lens error and now it will not power on. The battery is fully charged and can only be installed in one direction. I have tried powering it on without the batter via usb and also removing the battery and holding the power button. nothing seems to be working.

I have a Canon PC 1309 Digital Camera, which seems to have no power. I tried new batteries - nothing. Inside the camera is a little rechargeable battery - MS614SE. This battery is rated at 3.1v, but it is comatose - just nudges the needle on the voltmeter. My question is: is the rechargeable battery bad, needs to be replaced, or is it something else - the battery is good but is simply not being recharged? Can these batteries be recharged in a Radio Shack recharger?

Canon Powershot A470 - asks to 'change battery' every time it is turned on, then turns off immediately. This is so even when new, fully charged batteries (different brands, rechargeable, non-rechargeable) are inserted. Any ideas on how to remedy this?

At maximum, NimH rechargeable batteries reach 1.2volts, instead of the full 1.5-1.6volts of a standard battery. I recommend using Lithium batteries, vs. std or Alkaline batteries, as the Li batteries seem to hold a charge longer. \015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A470 Digital Camera

I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co
