The lens of canon a520 camera doesnt retract. My son has hardpressed it and it doesnt zoom in or zoom out.


Hi.

Are you receiving an error on the LCD screen such as "Lens Error" ? If so, this camera is defective and needs to be returned to Canon or an authorized dealer for repair.

If you are not receiving any error messages, does the camera have power (turn on and off) and still not zoom? If this is the case it would also be very unusual without an error message. Either way, you are still looking at a repair for this product.

Typically, a Powershot camera of this age would cost over $100.00 to repair at most facilities. You would be better off purchasing a brand new camera (with more megapixels and features) for around the same price as a repair.

Purchased new memory card for my canon powershot A520 and I keep getting a "memory card error". I've purchased two different cards and get the same error message. Original card that came with...


From page 145 of the A520 user manual, it appears that the largest SD memory card that this camera is able to use is a 512MB SD memory card. The manual is dated "2004", so this size limitation is not unusual for a camera of this era.
If you've purchased anything larger, there is a good chance that it won't work with this model camera.

Wont show up on my computer i want to download the pictures to my computer but it wont show up i have a canon power shot a520


Have you looked in "my computer"? It may show up as a removable drive. If it doesn't, try using a card reader to download your pics.

"Device is in use by another program" error message


Consider 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.

Canon PowerShot A520 dowload problems


ya. picassa wont do any help to you brother. you may have connected the camera and switched it ON right?
after switching it ON change it to play back mode( mode in whih you see your photos) that time only camera detects the computer.

even if this is not working try a different cable to connect it.

else use your friends system to check if camera is really faulty.

even if its not working take it to service center. dont forget to take your warranty card and purchase bill there.
