Question about Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera

4 Answers

Canon A630 just stopped working, lens stuck out/open

It had good batteries in it. Tried changing them 3 times with different ones. Nothing. No warning lights before it died. It just went dead. No sound, no lights, nothing. Changed the digital media card. Very annoying, just got it this spring. Is there anything that can be done to reset it? Or is it just dead and I take a $275 loss?

One idea: Can you connect to a computer over USB? Trying connecting it and turning it on to whatever setting you use to download photos. If your computer can still see the camera there's hope.

I checked the Canon website and there's no new firmware update available, so that's not an option.

I read the manual and the only reset option requires using the menu on the LCD, so that's out as an option too.

One last thought: Does it have an power adapter option? Perhaps you could plug it into wall power in order to completely eliminate the batteries from the circuit. If that works you know it's the battery.

Canon is best one brand if you brought through outside shop so please avoid and buy from service and branded shop.

My lens was **** inside the camera and would not come out when I turned the camera on. I could hear a sound but nothing was happening with the lens. I used a dental pick (small sharp pointed object) to pull at the lens and it came out and seems to be working fine. Just tried it a couple of hours ago and It seems to be OK.

Thanks for the suggestions. I did all but try the power adapter since it didn't come with one. I have to send it to Canon in Illinois and they will repair it under warranty but it will take 7-10 days after they get it so no camera for Christmas, New Year's or my Jan 4th trip to Utah (going for the first time). Very disappointing and I have to pay to pack, ship and insure it myself..and wait in line at the post office. What a rip off. For all the hassle, I could spend another $250 to get a new one.

My PowerShot A650 IS...the lens opens and closes


try charging the batteries to full when using the camera, if that did not work, update the firmware from CANON.COM.

if that also did not work, you need to visit the service centre as it could be a CCD problem or a shifted lens.

"Lens Error, Restart Camera" Lens stuck open, completely disfunctional! /sadface :(


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Canon PowerShot A630 power problem: NiMH batteries no longer work


I dont agree, I have tried several different batterie types and the batteries are draining almost instantly with the camera and they are not actually being drained. I think the camera itself is at the end of its life...as I have used rechargeable batteries for the last few years and now they wont even show as being charged on the camera. It stinks Im in your same spot now...no batteries are lasting even the brand new lithium ones...it has nothing to do with the battery "juice" but something with the canon supply power not recognizing/recieving the juice. Im not a canon expert, but I think the problem is more than the battery here Steve and im confused at the solution as well.
