A little fuse inside of camera on power supply board is broken. Just replace it and problem will be solved. This problem is very common in this Canon A75 and others A series.

Re: Power shot a75 does not turn on.

First, check that the battery terminals are clean and in contact with the batteries. Next, there are two door switches on the A75 that need to close to operate the camera. One is by the flash card door, the other by the battery door. A small piece of plastic on each door activates the switches when the doors are closed. Check to make sure that both of these are indeed being pushed in all the way when the doors are closed. Hope this helps at least one of you peeps.

Camera just froze up.

Try Rebooting the camera. Take out the existing batteries and insert some new ones. Then, turn it on and the lens should go back inside!

Hope this helps.

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?
