Question about Canon PowerShot A470 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a cannon digital camera A470. It asks me again and again to replace battries. It gets power on well but when I press the shutter button to take a photo the camera goes off and says replace battries. Grateful if someone could assist me promptly.

Is the shutter flex cable of A470 self-replaceable?

$35 is very inexpensive for this repair. But an A470 is only worth about that price these days. I know that flex cables are available on eBay, but the average person CANNOT repair this problem. The shutter flex cable is buried DEEP inside the camera, and inside the actual lens mechanism of the camera. You need to completely disassemble the camera to access it. If a new camera is out of the question, and you are certain that the $35 repair business is reputable, then would recommend them instead of you attempting to repair this yourself.

There is a very long delay when I am trying to take a picture. How do I take that delay off

Do you push the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) before pressing the rest of the way or do you just press the button and hope for the best?

I have my canon a470 digital camera, recently i had a problem with my cam, while taking any picture it showing fully white screen pictures not at all viewing properly as well their is a white lines are...

This sounds like a stuck shutter, with the shutter stuck open. See this link, trying Fix #5A. If Fix 5A does not work, your camera is then likely experiencing a broken ribbon cable to the shutter control. Unfortunately, repairing that cable would be more costly than the value of the camera. Also, repairing the cable yourself is not recommended as finding a replacement cable would be just as costly, and the actual repair is very difficult.

Canon A470 digital camera-black screen,no image on screen


The black screen problem means the lens sensor is spoiled due to over exposure to heat. Its better to give it to cannon service centre. If your camera is under warranty period its well and good they will replace the lens sensor for free of cost.

Thank you
