SOURCE: Problems with the battery and the flash on my canon powershot A530

Know this is an old post but... Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mentioned that your batteries weren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:

Try to check if your charger in the first place can still charge your battery. It could be the reason why there is no "charging light" indicator.

Hello

First, you must be certain that your battery pack is still good.

You have to clean all connecting point (between the camera and the batterry) with a dry clean cloth inside the battery pack compartment.

Another think to check, is the date and time battery (dime size battery located inside the battery pack compartment) to remove it, slide the battery case out and change it. Since the battery is install at the factory, it verry possible that there is no more power. At the end of your owner manual, you will find, before troubleshooting section, the way to remove it, it verry easy, no force need it.

A deffective flash card can also cause the problem. Remove also the flash card and replace it by a new one or another one that you have.

When the battery is fully charge, install it along whith the new time and date battery. Leave the camera alone for a couple of hour in order to let the board get some refresment. Try to put it on, if it not work, slide in and out the battery, couple of time, close the compartment and try again.

In many cases, the camera will start and you will have to put the time and date, if the battery (time and date) was warn out. Make sure that your screen is on. You ready to go. :)

Make sure you are using Lithium batteries. Alkaline batteries will go dead immediately in this camera. I've tried it.

SOURCE: Canon Powershot A470 - asks to 'change battery'

This happened with my Canon Powershot A470. I sent it back to he manufacturer and they said I was using the wrong batteries. Even though the camera is supplied with two alkaline batteries, they recommend using AA NimH rechargable batteries.

Make sure the battery is installed correctly.Try opening, then closing the cover to the memory card and battery compartment while holding pressure against it until you hear it click closed. Then try to power it up. The camera will not power up if the cover is not properly closed.

Canon Powershot G5 won't power on, even with adapter


If you can open it and you have experience and skills in fixing electronics, you can try in repair it.

Check the fuses on the printed board circuits.

They are labeled with a P, H or K in the middle of them.

Check them for zero ohms to test them with a meter,.

If you prefer not to do it, then it needs to be professionally serviced, which may be expensive (at least more than buy an used one).
