Powershot a610 will not power on

My powershot A610 will not power on. what happens is the green power light flashes on for a second but no matter what the setting, it immediately turns off. i've checked the batteries in other gadgets, and they are working fine. the lens does not appear to be obstructed by anything, and i've wiped off the connectors to the positive and negative battery nodes. this camera has not been dropped and is fairly lightly used considering i've had it for three years. i had no problems the last time i used it, though that was probably about 2 months ago. thanks

Junk in the usb mini connector could be shorting the main board out. Try a can of electronics duster in the port. Cheers!

How do I set the macro setting on a Canon Powreshot A610 and how can I switch of the flash?

Press cursor-down to toggle the macro setting.
Press cursor-up to cycle through the flash modes.

The flash modes are described in the "Using the Flash" section of the Basic Guide (page 9 in my copy) and the macro mode in the "Shooting Close-ups (Macro)" section (page 10). If you need the manuals, you can download them from the manufacturer's web site at

Cannon A610 + water = Print/Share button blue light !

Depends on how old your water ingress problem is.

If it is a recent problem, half fill a bowl with rice place your camera in it and cover the entire phone is rice, bury it.

Rice is hygroscopic and will absorb moisture from the camera.

No guarantee that will work though. Corrosion doesn't need much convincing to get going.

Canon Powershot A610 won't power-up

My camera stopped working some time later after being dropped.
If you are brave (or desperate), try this... I found it was not too difficult to open the camera up. Take all the screws from the bottom, sides and under the card and usb, and inside the battery compartment. They are all different lengths so keep some record of what goes where. Then I made sure the multiway connector underneath the top was firmly in place. That was all I could see that I could fix myself. And what luck! when I put it back together it worked.
