I had a similair problem while removing the rear cover. As I am not sure if your problem refers to the front cover only, I will describe how I managed to pull of the rear part.
Be sure to pull out all the screws (including the one inside the battery compartment) - there are 7 screws altogether. It is also necessary to keep the battery compartment lid open. It needs some strength to remove the rear cover. I suggest that you insert a screwdriver in the crack between both covers at the bottom or side of the camera and while twisting it sligthly, work all the way around the camera.

Good luck

I try to take photos with Canon powershot A530 but it keeps saying memory card locked. What do I do and what does that mean?


Umm, take out the memory card from the camera and there should be this small lever at the side of the card that shifts up and down. Shift it out of the "locked" mode.

My canon powershot A530 WONT TURN ON!!!!


Check the batteries, and if they are bad, replace them. If it has rechargable batteries, just get rid of them and try regular alkaline batteries. That should be the fix.

Taking apart a A530


Leave the mode selector wheel alone. It is not necessary to remove it. Take a look at the following A530 disassembly guide. It should be of help:

Zoom won't work


I have had the exact same problem develop with the A530- now twice!

The first time I had to send it back to Canon to fix it. According to the repair summary, what they replaced was, well, the entire control board...not many things breaking can cause the entire zoom/buttons to stop functioning aside from a control board malfunction of some sort.

Anyways, Canon fixed the camera, everything was hunky dory.

For six months. Then the problem developed again. When the same problem occurs twice in a row without any warning whatsoever, that's when I start getting annoyed and consider buying another camera.

So at least in my case, the solution to the problem was that it had to go back to Canon for repairs. I had an extended warranty on my camera, so I can't say how much it will cost to repair the problem. If it happens again like it did in my case...consider buying another camera.

My flash won't work!!!


Check to make sure your camera's not on the A530 recall advisory list. Maybe the flash capacitor isn't getting enough power due to the shorting described in the advisory?:

Canon a530 powershot won't snap a picture


sounds like the flash isn't charging, as the flash icon flashes while the flash is charging before letting you take the photo. Put it in "P" and disable the flash and see if it'll let you take a photo. G>
