You need to clean the contacts inside the battery compartment. Do this with a Q-Tip swab dampened in rubbing alcohol. It would be good to clean the battery and the charger also. Thank you,Dana

Canon a620. no image on display and pictures turn out black


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Canon A620 is taking black images/ Can't see images on screen


First try pressing the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. If that didn't fix it... A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras.

Screen will not read lense


Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back. This manually turns the screen on/off to save batteries. Just press it one more time to turn it back on.

A620 wont operate from batteries but will work off of ac adapter


Try replacing the batteries and check again. If this fails to solve the problem, try cleaning the battery terminals and the camera's contact points with an eraser. It could also be possible that the battery chamber's door is not closing properly. Try to press it while you turn the camera on.

My canona530 lense will not extend, it is not the batteries, they are new. any ideas?


There could be a grain of sand/salt/etc stuck between the extending ring elements of the barrel. My A620 had a similar issue that I fixed by prying the pebble out with a very small tool, I think a pocket knife. Be careful though, you don't want to end up scratching the lens or causing permanent cosmetic damage. This might be one about which to contact the good folks at Canon.

SHUTTERS AREN'T FUNCTIONING PROPERLY


Repair costing close to half the price of new camera is uneconomical. And unfortunately if it is the shutter ( which seems questionable and sounds like the lens unit has sand inside and canon want to replace it ) you will not be able to do this yourself. Buy a new camera.
