Question about Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera
Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

That's called the "color accent" feature. Press Function button, then select the Eyedropper icon with an "A" beside it. Then press Function again.
Now press the Display button. This brings up a cursor in the center of your screen. Point the cursor at an object with the color you'd like to keep, and then press the left button to select it. Then press display again to exit.
When you're done trying color accent, remember to set it back to Auto by pressing the Function button, then selecting the Auto feature.

Press the "Func/Set" button, then select the "square" icon. Then move right/left to select either the 2 (2seconds) or the 10 (10 seconds) icon. Then press "Func/Set" again.
To reset back to normal, repeat the above, but select the square.

I had this same problem. Once I got over about 1200 pictures, the screen just turned black, and the only setting that would work where I could see the lcd screen was the easy setting. I had read somewhere that this was due to the amount of pictures the camera had "counted", even if those pictures had been downloaded and erased from the camera. So I decided to reset the camera. Go to the tools list in the menu, scroll down to "reset all", and when it prompts if you want to "reset settings to default" click ok. This worked for me, and all of my settings - sunset, landscape, etc. - parameters in any of the settings (shutter speed, lighting, etc.) those will have to be reset.

Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.
