Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

Canan PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

My camera was working just fine on the one of the biggest trips of my life. We were out west, Colorado, Grand Canyon, etc., and it was working great. Then on day 4 of the trip, all of our pictures we had taken so far had been mysteriously erased from the SD card. The card was fine, we checked it in other cameras. From that day on, we have not been able to take pictures with our camera. When you press the button to take the picture, it doesn't even focus or do anything at all. You can hold the button down, and nothing ever happens. We ended up buying a whole new camera (not a Canon this time), but we'd still like to be able to fix this one.

This is the problem with this unit. you need to press it half-way to set the auto-focus and after you hear a beep then its ready to go. this thing usually happen when the battery goes down low. even though the charge battery warning is still not shown. Remember that is only uses 2 double AA battery unlike most of the unit of the same size which has 4 double AA.

Cannot transfer files from computer back to Canon Powershot A530


Your camera is designed to be a source of pictures, not a destination. If you want to copy pictures to a memory card, you need to use a card reader and not a camera.

Canon Powershot A540 - Change Batteries when Batteries Fully Charged


Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:

Finally, make sure you're using rechargeable NiMH batteries rated 2500 mah or better. Digital cameras just use too much power for standard alkaline batteries.

My flash won't work!!!


Check to make sure your camera's not on the A530 recall advisory list. Maybe the flash capacitor isn't getting enough power due to the shorting described in the advisory?:
