Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera ?

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.

KODAK CAMERA I can put fresh batteries in and take a few pics download them shut it off then turn it back on, and it will not let me, it shuts off just about as soon as I turn it on. I can take the same batteries out and put them back in and it will work for a few minutes then there it goes, its turns itself off. I went to try to get another one and they said since itwas 10 days past the 30 day limit. I had to get ahold of you. I really feel like throwing it in the dam River.

When I press the power button for my Olympus FE-190 to turn the camera on nothing happens. I haven't used it for a while so I initially thought that the battery might not have any charge. When I put the battery in the charger the charging light stays on for a few minutes and then goes out. I'm wondering if the battery needs replacing. I don't use the camera very often, have had it for a few years and, stupidly, have a tendancy to leave the battery in it when the camera is not in use.

I have a Olympus FE 190 Camera. After a couple of pictures the battery reads red and I can take the battery out and put it back in again and it reads green.
