Canon Powershot A530 - Not starting up

Hi,

It was all working fine, but all of a sudden, when I press the startup button, the lens does not move out and there is no startup activity in the camera.

It's kind of totally unusable now because of this issue.

I have check the batteries, replaced them with brand new batteries, but still fails to work.

Any help? Much appreciated.

Thanks.

When Turning on the Canon Power Shot A530 the


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, or if repair costs close to the value of the camera, they're worth a try.

Problems after repairing a Lens-error (E18) on a PowerShot A530


I think that the lens system is in different groups, which move independently based on a cam system. (This is based on watching the lens move while running the zoom lever.) I would suspect that your "cam timing" is not set quite right. You can either try to correct it by trial-and-error, making only small changes at a time, or send it in for factory calibration.

Canon A75 stuck between ON & OFF after uploading photos


My Canon A75 has the EXACT same problem. I have always handled it with care. When I was taking photos with it, the camera suddenly started shutting down without a low battery warning. It just started shutting down, but it stopped with the lens still sticking half way out. Like yours, the top green light flashes when I try pressing the power button. Any ideas?
