Question about Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera
It's possible that the lens is not fully extended, so other functions fail to engage. Please try my fix as follows.
OK you are probably going to think I am loony giving you this advise But No I am completely sane!
Get a can of compressed air OR acces to a compressor at your local garage Get them to fit the triggered air blower tool to it.
Blow around the lens in all the extension joins the firmly slap it in the palm of you hand with the side of the camera making contact with you palm. Do the procedure two or 3 times and inbetween the slaps turn it on to activate the lens mechanism. I have now fixed about 80 of these cameras with this method. I obtained the fix from Canon who charge $90 to do exactly the same. Keep at it as it will eventually work. One tip, make sure the battery is charged before you do this.
