Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

2 Answers

No power The camera will not turn on. We have replaced the AA batteries, still no power. This is my son's camera and while out of town he used it quite a bit. He said the camera was warm while using the video option. He quit using it, but was unable to get it to turn on. Is there something else we can try?

It will say low battery or will not turn on

If your camera uses AA batteries, you should note the battery type your camera support, and many cameras only support Lithium AA batteries or Alkaline AA batteries, else there maybe note enough voltage, so the camera will note low power. If your camera uses special camera batteries, and maybe you should replace it for a new one.

My camera won't stay on. Has a Internal memory full message.

This sounds like that you need to delete some images on your camera memory. You can try hooking the camera up to your computer and downloading the pictures to your computer or removing the memory card and using another memory card. You were not specific on what camera you have so some of my suggestions my not apply to your camera. Regarding the power problem try to replace the batteries if it uses conventional AA with digital AA batteries. Not all AA batteries are made the same because digital cameras require a lot of power If it uses rechargeable battery then try to recharge the battery.

Good Luck

I get no power when using fresh AA batteries or charged (Ni-MH batteries). Camera works fine when using AC power adapter.


Please make sure that you're using the LR6 AA sized batteries and also the terminals of the batteries are correctly inserted. Also make sure that the terminals of the battery compartment is clean without any obstacles or dirt. Also, try power reset and check if it helps.
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
If the issue persists, try the factory resetting. SETUP MENU-->RESET ALL--> OK
This should resolve the issue.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Camera turns on for 2 seconds or wont turn on at all.

There is no hardware reset on this model. We have many situation on different make digital cameras that uses AA batteries that would not turn on with some other AA batteries due to Amp requirement on the batteries. Which means that some circuit design would work only with rechargable batteries because they have more power due to higher Amp power. So I would try rechargable batteries for the last resort. -James

Hey bray598,
According to the manufacturer this camera comes with AA alkaline batteries so unless you bought defective batteries the ones you purchased should work fine. I would make sure the batteries are inserted properly, and make sure when you turn it on the battery cover and/or the memory card cover are closed. I hope this helps.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

How can I increase battery life?

Transferring images from the camera to the computer requires a lot of battery power. It is recommended to use the AC adapter when transferring pictures to conserve battery life. If not using the AC adapter, make sure your batteries are fully charged and use the highest possible serial speed when connecting the camera to the computer. After transferring your images remember to shut off the camera, otherwise the camera will remain "awake" and will continue to wear down the batteries. The LCD display also uses much battery power and should be used sparingly when trying to conserve power usage. Battery life can be improved by using AA sized lithium batteries, rechargeable AA Ni-Cad batteries, or rechargeable AA Ni-MH batteries instead of AA sized alkaline batteries.
