Answers :

Check inside the battery compartment. mine did the same thing i check and the middle battery contact had fallen out
This is almost always a sign of either of 2 things- water damage to the camera, or more often inferior batteries. I had a Kodak camera that ran fine on energizers, but when I used offbrand batteries I would have the same problem you are having. I have also had other cameras that would not work unless I was using a lithium ion battery.

To make the troubleshooting quick and painless do this:

Install a pair of lithium ion batteries. Shake the camera to make sure that the batteries are not loose. Turn it on. If it does the same thing, clean the battery contacts with a q tip and rubbing alcohol.

Power issues. Just recently I've encountered a problem with my camera. After plugging it into my computer (And not noticing the power surge notification on the desktop while doing so).

Powers off my canon powershot sd600 digital camera keeps powering off after about 30 seconds. I have gotten a new battery and that didn't help.

I have a Polaroid t737. I plugged it into a Mac OS X to try and download pictures, and the drive never showed up. Therefore I unplugged it from the computer.
