SOURCE: Canon Powershot A630 problem

The LCD screen may be overtaxing your batteries, resulting in shutdown. Are you using alkaline batteries, or worse yet "super heavy duty" batteries? If so, some brands of regular batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Performance varies by brand and shelf life of the batteries (how long were they on the store shelf before you bought them? Their expiration date may be listed on the package.).

Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Many retailers sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

SOURCE: canun digital camera powershot A630 lcd screen blank

I also cracked my Canon Powershot A630 lcd screen by dropping the camera. I saw a suggestion to buy a new replacement lens and either have it professionally replaced or try it myself. I ended up doing the replacement myself following instructions I found online. Now it works. Total cost US $63.

I would not recommend trying the replacement yourself, however. There are a few very delicate plastic parts in there which I ended up damaging. Luckily the camera and lcd screen are working great now. But it is probably worth having a professional camera repair shop do the whole job or insert the screen you've purchased. Good luck!

No, don't blame the grandkids. This sounds very much like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's age or warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

SOURCE: Canon Powershot A630 - dark image in auto mode

Could it have something to do with "white balance"? http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=145&modelid=14108#SupportDetailAct

When the shooting mode is set to (Auto), the white balance will be applied automatically. However, with the (Auto) mode, the camera may not reproduce the natural color of the subject.

If this don't help, try their website and see if you can troubleshoot it. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=145&modelid=14108#SupportDetailAct

If all fails, buy a newer Canon Powershot. I've tried the newer models and they seem good.

SOURCE: i AHVE A LENS ERRO AND NEED TO RESTART CAMERA.

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

My camera canon a630 is not identified by my computer


Do you have the SD card in it ? the computer really doesn;t see the camera it see's the card in the camera, this is if you have windows vista, 7, or 8, because these windows have a driver in windows, that's why if you go to the cannon website and go to support and look for download driver, there is no driver. But you should try some of the software they have for your camera. Image browser for windows is great, if you have windows, you didn't say, you really should post what OS you have when asking this kind of question.

Here is the cannon website, some nice software for you.

Make sure you pick the windows version you have.

One of the best cameras.

Out of focus pictures


Try allowing the camera to focus by pressing the shutter button halfway.  Wait for a beep then press the rest of the way to take the picture.  This should result in much sharper images.  If this helps please rate my solution.
