Hi
If you are looking for a replacement door for the battery compartment of you camera i would suggest the following.
Simply search for a Faulty Cannon power shot A570. Faulty ones sell for a lot cheaper. Then just replace the doors of both camera. Ebay is a good place to look.

It sounds like a low power startup. Are you sure the batteries that you are installing are good? If they're Dollar Store "Super Heavy Duty" batteries, that's likely your problem (shelf life has been exceeded).
Recommend trying to start the camera with premium alkaline, or best yet, rechargeable batteries (they have the most power, and save you money too!). If the above doesn't work, recommend contacting Canon, especially if your camera is less than a year old. The camera in that case would be eligible for warranty repair.

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

When i start my camera it turns the light green to red and shuts off immeditaly


Green light indicates good battery strength. Red light indicates that your camera has an insufficient or low battery power level and will be automatically powered off. . To continue using the camera, please change your batteries to new ones.


Please note that:
  1. If you don’t intend to use your camera for an extended period of time, please remove the batteries to avoid battery leakage and corrosion.
  2. Do not mix old and new batteries.
  3. Alkaline batteries are generally recommended.

If you've replaced the date battery, then the camera is defective. Being only a month old, first recommend seeing if your retailer will exchange it. If not, Canon will fix for free under warranty. Call 1-800-OK-CANON.

Cannon Power Shot SD550 Digitalelph


Sorry, missed your previous posts. The following blog outlines some simple repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty. Hope they help:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Wish you the best of luck. But keep in mind though that you have a 50/50 chance of repair with the above techniques. If they don't work, the camera likely needs replacement of the lens assembly. Unfortunately, due to the complexity of the repair (a LOT of things in the way), the cost of such a repair usually outweighs the value of the camera.

The following two links are repair guides for fixing a cracked LCD on similar SD500/600 models. They include some photos that may help illustrate how deeply buried the lens assembly is in the sd elph cameras.
