Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Broken shutter I dropped my canon powershot A540, and now the shutter doesn't work. teh camera seems to functional perfectly otherwise. I'm pretty sure that its just some spring or connection that was broken, because the shutter is lose. There is very little resistance when i push it and when i try to press only halfway i cannot feel a "half shutter". can i fix this myself?

    i dropped my camera, same model, in the toilet. i tried to turn it on and it was working, except for some condense on the lens, which would return white pictures. so, i opened it and allowed to dry for three days. after, the shutter wouldnt open at all anymore and photos are just black...

    I dropped mine as well and am experiencing the same exact problem. After taking it apart it seems as if there is alittle plastic piece that needs to reach a certain distance down to hit the sensor for the shutter. I think when dropped the end of it broke off and now doesn't reach. I'm not sure how I am going to remedy the problem.

How do I set my Canon Powershot A540 to delayed timer mode? I can see the icon on the menu, but it won't let me access it.


From the menu, select Drive Mode (third item from the top) then one of the self-timer options.

To start the self-timer, simply press the shutter release button.

Fuzzy pictures


If you have not dropped your camera or otherwise caused damage that would explain the change, then you should first check the settings.  Your camera has both automatic and manual exposure controls.  From what you wrote I expect you want to use the automatic settings.  First check the "dial" on top of the camera, which has a green AUTO setting.  Your manual should explain the settings in  further detail  if necessary.

Canon Powershot A540 - Change Batteries when Batteries Fully Charged


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 mention that your batteries aren'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:
