Just follow some tips below:

when u insert battery and turn on you told the battery icon will blink so try giving reset once ....

i think the firmware has got corrupted .... you must install the new firmware to it ...
after trying giving the reset option if problem persists then check whether there is connectivity with the pc or not ....

contact the service show room and get install the new firmware for your camera then it will work ....
and before have a check whether it is charging or not when the battery icon blink ...
if there is no charging progress means then there may be problem in the charging port or may be the charging IC is damaged ....
if it is charging then make sure that there is no problem with the charging port if not you must contact the service showroom and you must get replaced the port ...

any doubts reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you
bye

Try removing the batteries then either plugging your camera in with the AC adapter or the docking station. Try cleaning the contacts from the battery and the battery compartment of the camera.If your camera works with either one of these then you have a problem with either the batteries or the battery contacts. If your camera doesn't work with the AC adapter then you will have to send the camera in for repair.

Hi, it seem as if your battery is faulty you should try another battery to see if the computer will recognize when it is charging, you can also try your battery in another compaq presario computer to see if it will have the same problem.

Sounds like you have snapped the centre connector in the laptop. If you look at the AC connector on the laptop there should b a "pin" in the centre. These frequently snap off, symtoms are :
Battery will not charge
Will not turn on from AC supply.

There are some firm which will replace the ac jack for you but it will cost.

IBM T30 - power issues


You might try cleaning the battery compartment. Makeing sure there are no damaged pins. Often times even a single messed up pin will cause this. Also this is a very good indication of adaptor failure. If you haven't allready I suggest getting another ac adapter specific to you machine. Even a substitute will casue the same issue you are now experianceing.

Won't go on


Hey ghgyu,
I would first make sure you have the batteries installed correctly. If you are using a camera dock or you have an AC adapter cord I would try removing the batteries and try turning the camera on while connected to the camera dock or plugged into an outlet with the AC adapter cord. If the camera works this way I would then try cleaning the battery contacts with a soft cloth or an eraser. If none of this works I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Lens cover only partially opens


This blog post outlines repair procedures for stuck lens covers. An A400 is used as an example. But it should be similar for the A430:

Won't turn on


Ouch! You can't use an AC adapter with any battery-operated equipment you choose to just because the plug fits physically. The A70 requires 5-6 volts, and a Pavilion adapter typically puts out 18 volts. You most probably blew out your Canon's power supply within a few seconds, unless it's fused somehow. Next stop: tech support/repair shop/camera cemetery. Sorry.
