Question about Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera
I have a Canon Powershot A630 and sometimes when I try to take a picture on M mode with flash, the flash icon blinks when I press the shutter down, and it won't take a picture. Does anyone know what's going on?

The LCD screen may be overtaxing your batteries, resulting in shutdown. Are you using alkaline batteries, or worse yet "super heavy duty" batteries? If so, some brands of regular batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Performance varies by brand and shelf life of the batteries (how long were they on the store shelf before you bought them? Their expiration date may be listed on the package.).
Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Many retailers sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

When you plug the camera in and turn it on do you hear the computer make a sound? If so open My Computer and look for a new drive letter or a camera Icon. If present open that and browse the folders there. If you see your pictures you can simply copy them to My Pictures.
If no sound and no Icon, you may need to reload the drivers. Get the drivers and a manual free downloaded from here

My lens was stuck 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.

This is an old A70, but the way it's done is very similar as I don't think this has changed much over the years. It's a pin design that you have to push out with a stiff unbent paperclip. You push in on the side with the smaller hole. To access the pin you'll need to remove the front and back case covers. See the following:

You have to unscrew the left side of the camera (if you're looking at the back of the camera, the side that is right beside the flash). Then, at the very top, with a tiny screw driver, just gently tap the black flash compartment and it should work after that. I've had the flash problem twice in the past year and both times I got it to work again by taping on it. Hope it helps!
