If you dropped the camera, all the batteries in the world are not going to help !!!!! It needs to be repaired or replaced which ever is cheaper.

If you make sure that the memory card is properly seated and the batteries in and the battery door properly closed, then it should power up. If still no success, it may be the micro switch that closes when the battery door is closed.

SOURCE: Canon A590 battery problem, low life, won't work with good batts

I had this problemt too. I cleaned the contacts with rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab, then replaced the batteries with Duracell (not the cheaper Sunbeams I had been using). This worked like a charm.

SOURCE: canon a590 always low battery with new battey

Don't use regular alkaline batteries (even though you can...) It's a pain to splurge for the more expensive lithium or photo-specific batteries, but they do last. I take A LOT of pictures with my A590, and can usually get several hundred shots out of a set of good batteries. Try Energizer's web site for a coupon, sometimes they have them available.

It sounds to me like the gears that extend and retract the lens have been damaged, they are made of plastic and are easily broken. Replacement gears are available on a "well known auction site" that everyone should be familiar with.

Hmmm. With this, I suggest looking through your settings and trying to find a "power saver" setting. If that doesn't work, you could report the problem to the company. They should switch out cameras if you still have your warranty.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Hi,

I had the same thing happen to my A590. I found the problem with mine was a micro swtch inside the battery compartment. open the battery compartment and you will see the small white tap that is supposed to get pressed when you close the door. I took mine apart and wedged the end of a toothpick under the tab and mine has been working fine ever since. I haven't been able to get an answer as to what the purpose of this switch is but it's been about 6 months and I have seen no adverse effects from my repair.

Good luck,
Bob

Use NMH type batteries standard batteries are not good enough for the write load that this camera draws. I think it recomjmends this in your manual if you still have it.

Your USB cable is fine, I use a generic cable with my A590 with no problems. Connect the USB cable to the camera then your computer, make sure that the camera is set to the view setting instead of picture taking setting and then turn your camera an. Your computer should then see the camera. This is the only combination that works with my camera.

I have a Canon Powershot A590. The battery life is HORRIBLE! Is this a Camera problem? They do not last long at All.


Try getting some quality rechargable NiMH batteries and see if they last longer for you. The ones that I use in my A590 are rated at 2500 mah and last quite a while so far. I wouldn't recommend batteries rated at less than 2000 mah for this camera.

Best regards,
Bob
