Canon A590 IS still image playback shuts off

All of a sudden, my playback mode for still images shuts off
after a few seconds. Did I accidentally shut it off?

It also shuts off the camera itself.

If I turn on the camera in playback mode, it shuts off after a
few seconds and camera is off.

I turned off the power saving mode and still same thing.
Anyone know how to turn it back on?

What a waste of time!!!!!

Before doing a lot of investigation, I suggest you do a "Reset All".

You have probably set something by accident and trying to find it can be a chore.

Go to page 147 in your User Manual.

That will reset all of the options to Default Values.
