Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My flash won't work!!!

Sometimes when I try to take a picture with the flash, all I hear is a clicking noise. The orange light on the front shines for a moment, and then back off. But NO picture! IT takes pictures without flash, but not with! Can anyone suggest a problem or a resolution? If it's an internal problem, I may as well buy a new camera!

Check to make sure your camera's not on the A530 recall advisory list. Maybe the flash capacitor isn't getting enough power due to the shorting described in the advisory?:

Flashing orange arrow . cant get anything to print


Try taking out the print cartridges and then putting them back in and make sure they are really well inserted when you replace them. Then slam the lid down to really make sure its shut and it should resolve the problem.

Samsung HDTV stopped turning on and made a click sound


if it just clicks and thats it, yeah power supply. see if the fans run and it does the boot up sequence. let it try to come up again and again. it will spit out an error code. If all three LEDs on the front panel flash, it is on the engine side. Try to power up without the lamp and hold down the lamp door switch. You can see if the colorwheel is spinning or not through where the lamp shines.. you can also hear it .. its the high pitched squeel noise you hear whir up. If the colorwheel spins, then the ballast should strike up the lamp. If you hear a 1 second buzz sound, that is usually a bad lamp. The spark gap on the ballast fires if it cannot fire the lamp.. you might be able to see it glow. The lamp can be bad but not necessarily blown. If it looks good, try tightening the connections inside the assembly, the two wires (be careful fragile, glass, mercury, etc.)

Flashing Standby/Stero light and No picture.


How good is your picture when it did come ? Is it as good as it once was ? Or is it alittle washed out. If it is washed out the picture tube is weak . Sometimes turning up the screen control alittle would solve problem but if you turn it up too much you would have faint white line running diagonally. Now if you think the picture was good before you this problem video circuit would be your suspect . Jungle IC or something in the RGB circuits . Good luck
