Question about Canon PowerShot A620 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I can no longer download photos to computer

I have used my A620 for over three years with no problems. I would download photos almost daily. Suddenly, when I was attempting to download photos nothing happened at all. The computer doesn't bring anything up. It is not recognizing my camera.

    I have the same issue although I just got a new computer with Vista. Wondering if this is why I now have this problem.

    Exactly the same thing has happened to my A620 too after 3 years

    although I have not changed anything on my PC.

Try 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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

My Canon PowerShot A620 has a black screen, any ideas on how I can fix this? I can't even take pictures, all of them come out black


My A620 JUST started doing the same exact thing last night. LCD works, lens works... but something possibly wrong w/the shutter so it won't open.. everything black.

Black LCD screen. Nothing in LCD screen. No photo on card. When connected to computer, black images appear, no photo. Problem?


I took a hammer to the shutter - now it opens! Actually, I tried the suggestion and it did not correct the problem. I guess I will have to get a new camera. Very disappointed as this camera is only four years old and well cared for.
