If you are using this camera for 4 yrs with the same lithium battery then you might need to try a new battery
any lithium battery cell's capacity diminishes after long use. it reduces the cell's ability to deliver current. the older batteries do not charge as much as new one.
when you charge your battery it irreversibly loses approximately 20% capacity per year.
hope this help

I bought my camera in july 2006 - recently it runs


I´ve got the same issue. If you use the batteries that were in A540 in another camera, does it still work?

Cant download pictures to computer


Hello and welcome to FixYa

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.

Kind Regards
Andrea

Memory Card Error - Locked


The likely problem is that the BIOS battery (NOT the rechargeable Lithium battery) has run low. This tiny, internal battery can be replaced without too much trouble by someone who doesn't mind disassembly of small parts, otherwise it's best left to a pro.

The battery is available from Canon or an official distributor, such as Huron Camera in Jackson, Michigan.

Check the parts list. If you're squeamish, give Huron a call and arrange to have them fix it.

Battery issue


Sorry for the late response (don't know how I missed this post?). 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 camera's battery icon is flashing. 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:
