Buy a new one. I am still trying to figure it out. If I pull on the lens a bit, when I restart, I get a normal view for one second and then zooms to 16x. It's a bummer, I love this camera. I used the macro a lot and noticed I was having trouble getting a clear focus before it did this.

Function buttons not working on canon a590


Since CHDK changeset #917 the <Alt> button can be set to PRINT (default) or DISPLAY from the "Miscellaneous stuff" / "<ALT> mode button" CHDK menu
  • If DISPLAY is selected for <Alt> button: press DISPLAY quickly it will act as your <ALT> mode button, but if you hold it down for a second, it acts like the DISPLAY button normally does

I have a canon A590 is camera. When I try to upload pictures onto the computer and plug the camera into the computer nothing happens.The camera does not power on like its suppose to. Why is this? I know...


Your USB cable is fine, I use a generic cable with my A590 with no problems. Connect the USB cable to the camera then your computer, make sure that the camera is set to the view setting instead of picture taking setting and then turn your camera an. Your computer should then see the camera. This is the only combination that works with my camera.

Best regards,
Bob

Lens adapter ring stuck


As I recall you have to push in on the ring as you hold down the release button and twist. The store had problems with it too. Read the manual. Gene

Lens does not zoom in


This is not a common error on canon digital. This is caused due to possible short in zoom control circuit (main pcb). At normal use, if the lens does not retract due to mechanical jam, when the zoom control button is pressed, lens error 18 message supposed to be displayed. Since control circuit is shorted and faulty, error 18 message was not displayed. The remedy for this problem probably requires a replacement of a main pcb. Replacing a main circuit board may run around $100-140. -James
