Question about Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera
I assume you've already gone thru the obvious check and proposed fixes covered in the user manual (battery replacement, contact cleaning, etc). I did all that to no avail after dropping it about 1m onto a concrete floor last nite - after which it refused to power up.
There was no obvious mechanical damage other than a ding on the
rear corner of the battery box door. After disassembly, seeking interior damage, I found a deformed piece of plastic near the door
latch strike that was preventing the door closure switch next to the "MENU" button from fully operating. Some careful tweaking and making a note to push the latch fully closed after use fixed it.
This switch must be operated (opened) in order for the camera to
run. You can verify this on a working A570 by pulling the door latch
partway open, while keeping the door closed by hand, and trying
to power up.
