Question about Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera
Iwas working fine untill I dropped it.
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.

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.

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.
