You need a exif viewer, to see what date you shot the picture. Some cameras allow you to put the date visual in the photo but it must be setup before you shoot. And for these pictures you can't remove the date when you don't need it.
get the program here and load your picture in this program:

Ebay was selling one for a few dollars in working condition, you are better off buying a used one or a none working one making sure the battery door is good. You can replace the battery door but it will require you to take the front and rear cover of the camera off. You will have to take off the little screws all around the camera and the pry apart the front and rear case.
Sometimes you can use a pair of small needle nose pliers and just squeeze the ends of the plastic battery door inwards from the hinge and the battery cover should pop out. To install the new battery door you do the same, squeeze the plastic axle and push it into the cameras case.

On a powershot? when you say you can't see anything through the lens, do you mean on the lcd screen?

For repairs in the US, this is the only place we recommend: www.CamerasAndParts.com They only service Canon Powershots and they are excellent. They are about half the cost of most shops and do such great work! That's the place that most people use for the Canons, most every repair package through them is about $80 - $90 with both parts and labor and the return shipping included. Plus they do the cleaning and servicing for the camera with all their repairs. You won't beat them for service if you have a Canon.

Your camera has an electronic view finder. To switch between the view finder and the display, you have to press the DISP. button several times and look what happens in Shooting mode and what in Playback mode. If only the display will come on, and the viewfinder stays black the camera will have a defect. If you can't use the camera anymore, because you only can shoot with the viewfinder, consider buying a new camera, because any repair will be more expensive than a new camera with the same quality.

From the way you describe the problem it appears that the retraction mechanism has become out of line. I think that as you can hear a clicking sound the mechanism is working but not engaging with the lens. Try gently applying slight pressure on the front of the lens this may help to re-engage. You may need to consider a trip to the repair shop.

Try selecting a smaller resolution. This may help you to shoot images but clearly there is a problem at the higher images size. Try also cleaning the contact on the memory card.

Check the manual; some models are limited to uploading videos of two minutes or less.

Hope this helps!

Make sure that the card is formatted FAT32 in your PC and try it again in your camera.

Might be a difficult fix. You'll need to gently pry out the battery using something like a dental pick (I've used these with great success and you can get them at hobby stores or hardware stores). If the damage isn't too great you can gently clean the contacts and inside of the camera with a DAMP QTip using alcohol. After cleaning, use a solution of baking soda and water to DAMPEN a QTip and swab all the surfaces that came in contact with the battery acid to neutralize it or it will continue to corrode. Allow it to dry and then swab is again with alcohol to clean away the residue. Keep the battery door open for a day or so to allow it to dry out and be very careful with water around the electronics. If the corrosion is too great you're better off getting another camera. If the battery leaked into the camera it will continue to corrode anything it touches.

The best way to transfer pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa.
Organize edit and share your photos

As for the battery, does the camera work when not transferring pictures? That is, can you take and review pictures, etc?
