Question about Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

Open Question

I have two Canon Powershot A610 cameras that will not turn on. I have put new batteries in and it doesn't matter if there are memory cards in or not. The cards are compatible, they work in the other cameras. Where should I start with the trouble shooting?

Memory card error with 4gb card


Your camera was made before 4GB SDHC card format came out. Sorry, but a Powershot A610 can only work with 2GB or less standard SD cards. Fortunately, these are very inexpensive these days. If your local store doesn't carry them, then here's some from Amazon.

Turn on the camera. "Memory Card Error" displays.


You'd better change a new memory card that doesn't have a problem to check whether it is matter of Canon PowerShot A480,or use another well camera to check if it is error of your memory card.

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine . Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec .. in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

How do I format the memory card on the Canon Powershot A610 camera


Hi,

The option to format the card should be in the camera's menu.

To do it properly consult the manual.

Other than that you can pop the card in a card reader, connect it to a computer and format the card that way.


Regards.

Memory card error?


Hi, Check if other memory card is working on your camera. This is one way of checking if your memory card if still working or there is an issue wither the camera. Formatting Memory card **you should always format a new memory card or one from which you wish to erase all images and other data. ** Please note that formatting a memory card erases all data, including protected images and other file types. 1. (Set up) Menu [Format]
2. Select [OK] and press FUNC SET button.
Low Level format, recommended by cannon
Select the [Low Level Format] when you think that the recording/reading speed of a memory card has dropped. A low level format may require 2 to 3 minutes with some memory cards.

YES HI my cam will not turn on. its a powershot a610 cannon cameria


Things to check first are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Details on what needs to be checked may be seen here. It won't work for every case, but it's worth a try.

My Canon powershot s400 camera won't read memory card


First, remove the card, and look in the slot for any bent flash card pins. If you see any, don't fret, it's possible that you can fix this yourself. See this article on how to unbend flash card pins.

But if no pent pins are seen, then the camera's clock battery has worn out, and is likely causing this problem. Unfortunately this battery is internal to the camera. But Canon will fix this for you (for the S400 only) for free, with free shipping. Please see the Canon advisory for your camera here.

Canon Powershot A610 won't power-up


My camera stopped working some time later after being dropped.
If you are brave (or desperate), try this... I found it was not too difficult to open the camera up. Take all the screws from the bottom, sides and under the card and usb, and inside the battery compartment. They are all different lengths so keep some record of what goes where. Then I made sure the multiway connector underneath the top was firmly in place. That was all I could see that I could fix myself. And what luck! when I put it back together it worked.

Junk in the usb mini connector could be shorting the main board out. Try a can of electronics duster in the port. Cheers!
