Put a small piece of tape over the switch on the card and re-insert it. If the camera now functions properly, the "feeler" in the camera may be malfunctioning. Don't think the tape solution is a permanent fix....the tape will eventually come off inside the camera causing more problems.

Trying to view pictures

If you mean trying to view pictures already taken, then consider this:

there are 4 small buttons, one on each corner, and one large one in the middle, on the back of the camera. Press the top-left one to toggle between viewing and taking-picture modes. Then you can use the larger one to move from one picture to the next by pressing the left or right side of it.

Orange blinking light

This happens if you are taking shot in low light condition where a camera shake is more likely to happen. use a tripod, or change the ISO to higher value. Using Higher ISO would help less camera shake but the image may have coarse. This is not malfunction.

Camera that won't respond to button-pushing, yet lights up

Does this camera have a memory card? If it does, try removing it and than try turning the camera on. If this by chance does not work, it may need to be taken in for firmware repair.

The Zoom mechanizim is faulty- this is a shop repair job.
The other possible cause is failing or incorrect battery type.
Either will not deliver enough power to operate the lens.
So check battery condition/type.
IF OK Check Canon for repair/replacement[if still with Warranty]

Canon A540 flash charge not holding

Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to a 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 check the following two links for more info:
