Question about Canon PowerShot A620 Digital Camera
I dropped my camera and it now only powers on when it is pointing down. It works completely fine but only if it is not pointing straight ahead. As soon as I tilt it up to point it straight ahead it powers off. If it is upside down pointing up or sideways, it WORKS. It stops working when it is pointed straight ahead or when i tap on it. Obviously something is loose. Is there a common part that I would look at?
I dropped mine from about five feet. I phoned Canon. They wanted me to send it to Illinois and estimated $105 for repair. Following leo2's suggestion I found Superior Camera in Woodland Hills in the Fixya Repair Directory. Zvi diagnosed it as a bad battery contact and fixed it at no cost. It sounds like your problem could be the same. The impact of those heavy batteries "loosens" the contacts.
