Question about Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon A590 takes only black images

I have a Cannon A590. The camera only takes black images when I try to take pictures during normal operation. Everything else seems to working properly. I am trying to take pictures during daylight hours and the flash does work. Nothing appears to be blocking the lens of the camera. Is there some way to restore the camera so that I can resume taking pictures?

    Reseting all my settings does not fix the problem of take only black pictures on my camera. I've slao tried taking out all the batteries including the small CR1220 button battery and both AA batteries. Are there any other possible solutions?

I can only take at least 15 shots in my Cannon Powershot A590 IS, pls. help me how to adjust for me to take pictures atleast hundreds of shots.


Your camera has limited storage using internal memory and probably came with a 32 MB memory card. An SD card of even 1 GB (tiny by today's standards) will hold about 100x as many picture as your internal memory.

Buy a larger memory card. These don't cost much and a 1 GB card can hold a LOT of pictures. After 1 GB, there are differences in the memory cards and the higher capacity card might not work in your camera.

If you want to increase the number of pictures you can store either with the current card or using internal memory, then you have a couple of other options. 1) change the picture size to "small" and 2) set the compression to "normal" to achieve the maximum number of images for your memory. Warning: small and normal might give pictures that are too low of resolution for what you want.

I got my Canon a590 this past christmas; since then, every so often, it will not show any image on the screen. All I can see is the menu options. Every time I want to take a picture, all I get is absolute...


Your camera should still be covered under the one year factory warranty. I would go to the Canon website and contact them for a covered repair if I were you.

When the camera is turned on the lcd screen is black. When i press the button to take a photo the flash is used and the the sound is heard but no image is seen. the batteries are good. flash working.


I used to have that, try pressing the DISP. button when the camera is in picture mode. The black screen should go away. That's how i solved the problem when i had it.

Imags have colur disfiguration


If the pictures look normal when viewing them on the camera but have this color distortion afer downloading them to the computer it sounds like they are getting corrupted during the transfer. Try a different USB cable if you can or try downloading them to a different computer to see if the problem persists and if the same images are displaying the same problems.

Best regards,
Bob

Cannon A590 "Change the batteries" after replacing new batteries


Off-the-shelf NiMH rechargeable batteries, and the special lithium nonrechargeablebatteries sold as esepcially good for camera use, don't have enough voltage output for this camera. Try using regular alkaline batteries or the rechargeables sold by the manufacturer.

Bought new cannon a590 powershot and lost disc and operators manuel for camera and i cannot download photos to computer. Thanking you any help would be great


Buy a card reader for cheap and download photos using card reader. Remove SD card from camera and insert into card reader, then hookup card reader to computer through USB port. Try Picasa3 free software from Google to download images. Works great and all is inexpensive
