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 see this link for more info.

My battery will not charge. I purchased a new


The flashing on a charger usually means that the battery is defective or will not take a charge. I would take the battery back to the vendor and have them check it. A good indication is that if your old battery took even a small charge, it is not usually the charger that is the problem. It points to the new battery being faulty.

Camera has failed to operate giving a "change batteries" message


Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

My camera won't turn on. I charge it and the red charging light comes on. I have returned the camera for the same problem 3 times. bought it from WalMart. I was on my vacation the 1st time it happened, and...


Are you sure the battery was inserted properly? Try putting it in the way that looks backwards... the battery seriously looks like it's supposed to go in the wrong way. If you're looking inside and using the spring for a reference, DON'T. The spring is only there to push the battery out, not to attach to it.

Camera shuts off after one shot


Set the camera to clean ccd mode and carefully remove the lens. If you can't see the ccd but only the shutter then the shutter is sticking. I have this problem when not using the camera regularly. My solution to free the shutter was just to set the camera to long exposure and just keep restarting the camera and taking a photo until the shutter moves. This problem happened from the very first time I had the camera run low on batteries at a few months old but at the time I never checked the shutter and the camera just restarted once and it worked.

Finepix S9000 won't turn on with fully charged batteries


I have the exactly same problem on my E550, I also use AC adapter to test it, it works without any question, the conclusion I got focus on the circuit of E550, may be some parts was old enough that they need more Amp. to work, in other word, batteries won't provide enough juice to make them work correctly even you use new batteries. This is the issue regarding the quality of E550, Fujifilm should responsible for this, and we need sue fujifilm on this particular issue
