Question about Cameras

1 Answer

My Cannon Power Shot A520 Camera will not power the lens up when I turn it on. I get the message "No Image" on the viewing screen, but nothing else happens. Back Switch is set on camera symbol, but camera acts like it is set on view. I have installed new batteries and battery terminals are clean.

    We have just noticed that their is a slight dent in the casing around the zoom that actually also involves the zoom. We do not know if that dent is new or not. We were unaware of it before. That could well be the problem, could it not?

The camera may need a software update which can be done through manufacture for $50 or you can downlaod an update from their website and follow the directions
Or the zoom may be dirty or debris is stuck in the zoom lens and needs to be blow out with compressed air or cleaned with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab.

    That very well could be the problem. Just the slightest pressure on the zoom can cause it not to function.

Using my Canon SH Power Shot SX60 SH Camera, Today I to took a view more shots and it just keeps giving me the ERROR Message(memory card error)I have Valuable pic's on this card and now don't open up.


Your card may be full, or else corrupt. Either way, replace it immediately. If it can be read in your computer, copy all the photos to the hard drive. If not, then find a friendly computer-tech who can run image rescue software on it for you.

Cannon power shot A520 Wont save time and date stamp when turned off, I did replace the small battery by the USB Port but results are same.


hi, there's a capacitor on the main pcb that you need to change just to save the time and date even you turning off your camera. bring to service center and maybe the service charge is cheap.

CANNON A520 POWER SHOT DIGITAL CAMERA


Tab on the camera. E18 is a stuck lens. This is common on this camera. I'm not saying this will fix it, but don't break it.
