Question about Canon PowerShot A620 Digital Camera
After pressing the on button when in camera mode (the lens is currently in the extended position), the camera buzzes briefly, the LCD screen does not activate, the lens does not retract and the camera shuts down. When in playback mode the camera buzzes briefly, the Canon chirping bird appears and chirps then the screen and the camera shuts down. I have changed the battery and memory card with no change in the problem. The camera has not been dropped and is in very good condition. It was purchased new in 6/06. I bought a Canon Power Shot a620 in July of 2006. It will not power up at all. I have tried new batteries, cleaning the battery contacts (which are spotless anyway). I have never dropped or abused this camera in anyway and have used it very little. I am hoping that the factory will stand behind there product and am sending it in today.
Again the same old compact camera zoom lens problems - sand in lens, stuck AF motor, chewed up plastic gears...you only have to look at them wrong and they will die... (A very cynical camera repairer that has tried to repair these damn things soo often!!) Even cameras with internal lenses like the old Nikon 950/990/4500 still have troubles with stuck motors and broken lens parts. I despair - these things are just made to last the guarantee out (if that long) and die horribly afterwards!!
