Question about Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

Canon Powershot A520

Hi there,

There must be a small slot and battery just under the rubber cover on the side where the cable inputs are, which I didn't notice I had lost when I dropped my A520 recently. (This battery maintains the various settings such as the date/time feature.)

If you are still willing to sell the parts of your camera, please let me know as I would need the battery and the little slot piece that holds it in. MCSbummed

I finally figured out that the little round CR1220 battery is located under the rubber cover of the side digital AV connector. Simple solution once you know where to look.

Canon Powershot A520: The camera it self shuts down and start again. There seems to be problem with firmware. Please help on this


I believe you should do a complete reset. If this can be done through the Menu all good. If not, remove the memory back-up battery for some 30 seconds and re-insert. In most cases this cures the problem. The back-up battery I think (from memory) is next to the AA batteries, a little grey cover with CR1220 stamped on it or something. Good Luck

The time and date setting of my canon powershot a520 always pops up in the window of the camera eventhough i set it. It usually shows when I on the camera,shot a picture and playback the picture.


CoolJoe72 only posted one answer, but it was a good one, and it applies directly to you. Check it out here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t313710-having_reset_date_time .

(The short answer is that you need to change the date battery, which you'll find under the terminal cover; it's a CR1220.)

I have a Canon Power Shot A520 and have just put in a new memory card 4GB and new batteries. When I turn on camera is says memory card error at the top of the sceen. Why is that?


The A520 is designed to work with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible.

You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

Cannon power shot A520 Wont save time and date stamp when turned off, I did replace the small battery by the USB Port but results are same.


hi, there's a capacitor on the main pcb that you need to change just to save the time and date even you turning off your camera. bring to service center and maybe the service charge is cheap.

thank you

Will not save date every time camera turned on and off date needs resetting


Time to change out the CR1220 battery that keeps the camera's time. It's located under the rubber flap on the left side of the camera (with the A/V and power inputs plugs). Just pry out its slide door with your fingernail, and take the little battery to your local drug store. It runs about $3 to $4 for a replacement.

Seeking Canon Powershot A520 Battery Door.


You can probably pick up a "broken" A520 on Ebay for $20 or less and use the parts from it. There are always some listed, but there are a few bidders who are in business picking up these cameras and "fixing" them to sell again. Good luck.

I have a "broken" A520 that needs a new LCD. I really don't want to spend another $90 to get it fixed so may be willing to sell it for parts. Let me know. I don't know about any guide for disassembly however.
