Re: Seeking Canon Powershot A520 Battery Door.

You can probably pick up a "broken" A520 on Ebay for $20 or less and use the parts from it. There are always some listed, but there are a few bidders who are in business picking up these cameras and "fixing" them to sell again. Good luck.

Date Battery how to change

Lift the rubber flap on the left side of the camera. Pry open the tiny plastic slide door located there with your fingernail. Remove the CR1220 battery, noting which side goes up and down before you do. Take the battery to your local drug store Walgreens or Riteaid and buy a replacement from the battery section for about $3. Note that drug stores generally sell this battery much cheaper than department stores (like Walmart ~$6). I know that it doesn't make sense.

My camera is not turning on even when we put in new batteries.

There could be 3 problems:
  • broken memory card door switch 
  • broken battery door switch
  • dead fuse
I have seen all of these on A510 and A520. If you have a multimeter, some experience and like to repair it yourself, I could help you. My e-mail is
If not, you should give it to a local camera repair shop or Canon service center for a repair.
