When you say doesn't work, can you be more specific? Are you seeing a black screen? If so, have you tried pressing the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera?

    yes it is a black screen, and yes I have pushed the disp button several times, actually the only time that there has been any visible image on the screen was when my granddaughter got ahold of it.

    To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

    Now if you DID see shutter movement, the final likely culprit is a loose ribbon cable connector to the LCD screen. You'll then actually need to partially disassemble the camera to reseat the ribbon cable into its connector (just push it to make sure it's in all the way). Here's an example of how to get to it:

It doesn't power on


Your camera can be defected. If you buy new batteries, and it still doesn't work, than you'll probably want to send it back to the manufacturer. First, call them and tell them your problem, and if that doesn't work, than you might want to carefully examine your camera, to check if everything is in the correct place, and their all working correctly.

You can download the software from Canon here.

I would suggest though, that you use a card reader instead of connecting the camera directly to the computer. It's faster and easier and doesn't require any extra software.

If your LCD doesn't light up then it's either the backlight or the LCD, you can open up the camera and check the cables before buying any parts. Some LCD screens come with the backlight, some don't; not sure if this one does or not.

IF it was water damage, you probably have corrosion on the main PCB and won't be able to fix it without replacing the board... open it up and check for corrosion!

Hope this helps.

Where do I buy an internal battery for a Canon Powershot A560?


CR1220 batteries are needed for the clock and AA batteries to power up the camera itself. They are widely available and plenty are available on eBay or Amazon websites.

The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:
