Question about Canon PowerShot A510 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon powershot A510 all of a sudden no power??

My Canon camera was working fine until this evening when my daughter tried to use it. She knew she needed to change the batteries and when she did she put in some cheapo's....bad mistake?? but I don't think enough to kill the camera. Now the Canon wont power up or anything and the lens is stuck out. The only response I get from the camera is a tiny green light when I try the power button which the green button quickly flashes right by the eye viewer and then goes off. It is like some internal battery has died or something. Is this possible and/or fixable at home? Help please!!!

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't power on. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try. Recommend trying first the one listed that describes removing the memory card before powering on the camera:

What is the maximum size of an SD card that can be used in a Canon PowerShot A510?


You can use any size SD card. Just keep in mind that SD cards max out at 2GB; any larger cards are actually SDHC cards and will not work in the A510.

Can't format memory card in A510 Canon digital camera.


Have you used this card in the past? Is this a new card?

Is this card rated to be used with this camera. Some cameras can only support cards of certain sizes.

If the card is compatible, take the card to target or best buy and format it on a camera there and see if it works then put it back in your camera and see if it works after.

I have a CANON powershot a510 and it doesnt even turn on...


Here's some thing to try for a camera that won't power on.

For your camera, there's a tiny white slide switch on the battery door that closes when the door is closed. Make sure that the switch isn't damaged. Also check the little plastic nib on the battery door that pushes on the switch when the door is closed.

Canon digital camera power shot A510


The E18 error is fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension.

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but they're worth a try:
