Question about Canon PowerShot A510 Digital Camera

Camera won't turn on

I have a Canon PowerShot A510 Digital camera. A few weeks ago, the camera would not turn on. I thought maybe the batteries had died, but I put in new batteries, and the camera still won't turn on. When I press the On/Off button, nothing happens. Any advice on how to fix this problem?

    Just got a used Canon A510 powershot and it worked fine untill the batteries died. I replaced them and now the light by the dial turns on but then it gives a series of beeps and shuts off. I put the old batteries back in and the display lights up and says change the batteries. I dont know what else to do?

My camera is not turning on even when we put in new batteries.


There could be 3 problems:
  • broken memory card door switch 
  • broken battery door switch
  • dead fuse
I have seen all of these on A510 and A520. If you have a multimeter, some experience and like to repair it yourself, I could help you. My e-mail is toms.safranovs@gmail.com
If not, you should give it to a local camera repair shop or Canon service center for a repair.

Cracked LCD on Canon PowerShot A510. A few weeks back, I noticed that my LCD view screen was cracked on my camera. The camera still functions since I use the other view finder anyway. However, I obviously...


Your best option is buy a junk one off ebay and replace LCD. LCD replacement is very straight forward, just remove the screws, pry the case apart and the rest will be easy. Use the one you buy off ebay and practice getting it apart.

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.

View window is black


There is a temporary fix that works sometimes but eventually it will stop working alltogether. If canon can't help, might try this:
