The A520 is designed to work with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible.

You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Powers up and then shuts off


This should work for the A520. With NEW or freshly recharged batteries, remove the camera's memory card, then turn on the camera. You'll probably see an E30 error. Next turn off the camera. Next insert the memory card, and turn on the camera.

If the above doesn't work, the following blog outlines some other 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:

Camera Memory Card Error, Canon Power Shot A520.


It sounds like your card is the problem. Try using a different card in your cam to confirm this. You might try to format the card (should be a menu that lets you do this) to see if that helps. Also check the connectors on the card and make sure they are not dirty or broken.
