Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera
Hi, My Cannon Powershot A75 turns on fine, but it won't zoom and then it says that I need to change my batteries. I am wondering if that is because I am using Italian AA batteries, because I am studying in Italy? I have no idea, is there anything I can do or should I just try to take it to a repair shop? Thanks!
It is very unlikely to be a problem with the batteries if you are sure they are new and the right size and correctly inserted. The fact that it turns on at all would indicate that the batteries are fine. A "stuck" zoom on this range of cameras is often solved by giving the camera a gentle slap. (I have an A95 which had a similar problem that solved itself when my girlfriend dropped it). I wouldn't recommend dropping your camera, but try a little soft violence and you may find it works. If not, then a repair shop is definitely the best solution as these cameras have few internal parts that an amateur could fix. Possibly another solution could be to try the external power supply - most main camera shops should be able to supply - thus eliminating completely the possibility of the batteries being the problem, but it sounds like a mechanical issue with the zoom mechanism.
