Question about Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Flash Will Not Fire

Same issue as another user - brand new batteries, plenty of space on memory card. A/F beam working. If flash is needed when shutter button pressed, the lightning bolt icon flashes as if it is waiting for the flash to recharge, though it hasn't been used - picture is not taken.

Camera was not dropped (to my knowlege - there are children in the house though, so you never know... :) ).

Try a mode other than auto, and turn off the flash. Then try taking a picture. Did it work? If so, then your flash is either shorted or burned out, or the flash safety circuit thinks that the camera is open. If the flash is burned out, then professional repair is required, as a flash change-out is not trivial (Call 1-800-OK-CANON).

However, it's more likely to be only a break in the safety circuit. Many Canon cameras use some of the screws in the camera case to serve as a means of detecting if the case is open (and thus disables the flash to prevent shock). Examine all the screws around the perimeter of your case. Are they all there and tight? If not, tighten loose screws and try moving and replacing any missing screws with one of the others that are still there.

I formatted my 4GB TDK flash drive, now it show me only 3.95MB memory only. how can i recover it back to 4GB memory space, now it doesn't show me even the flash drive lock status & that screen when...


there is an overhead for the space on a drive, the system needs a File Allocation Table and other administrative information, so the total 4 GB is usually not 100% available. It would not work properly without this "administrative" space.

If you want to use that flash drive for backing things up then I would suggest not using it for ReadyBoost. If you disable ReadyBoost on that flash drive you should have plenty of space on your flash drive for backups. Disabling it should not hurt your computer's performance at all. Here is how to disable ReadyBoost: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Turn-ReadyBoost-on-or-off-for-a-storage-device.

Sandisk 4GB flash drive is empty, but only shows 51.8 MB of space left. How do I reformat, or restore the 4GB of space. The drive is a 2007 - if that matters. ** I am a MAC User.


This is a known issue with mac. If you have a windows based pc, plug the usb there and delete all the files. You will be surprised to see that there are remnant files in there from mac.
