Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera
I have a Canon powershot A 530. All of a sudden the zoom won't work & the menu buttons won't work either. I have tried to change the batteries, take out hte memory card, turn it off & on... but nothing works. i can still take pictures & change the setting wheel at the top but that's it. Do you know how to fix it???
I have had the exact same problem develop with the A530- now twice!
The first time I had to send it back to Canon to fix it. According to the repair summary, what they replaced was, well, the entire control board...not many things breaking can cause the entire zoom/buttons to stop functioning aside from a control board malfunction of some sort.
Anyways, Canon fixed the camera, everything was hunky dory.
For six months. Then the problem developed again. When the same problem occurs twice in a row without any warning whatsoever, that's when I start getting annoyed and consider buying another camera.
So at least in my case, the solution to the problem was that it had to go back to Canon for repairs. I had an extended warranty on my camera, so I can't say how much it will cost to repair the problem. If it happens again like it did in my case...consider buying another camera.
