Buy a card reader for cheap and download photos using card reader. Remove SD card from camera and insert into card reader, then hookup card reader to computer through USB port. Try Picasa3 free software from Google to download images. Works great and all is inexpensive

If you make sure that the memory card is properly seated and the batteries in and the battery door properly closed, then it should power up. If still no success, it may be the micro switch that closes when the battery door is closed.

Have a look at CNET.COM
I have the same camera and the same fault. CNET are suggesting Canon should recall the camera because of this fault. I did see elsewhere on the net that it was a battery contact problem and a home-made modification could fix it. The camera takes great pictures but I can only use it if I have a batch of fully charged cells with me, and keep changing them. If I go out I take my Olympus or Fuji with me.

SOURCE: Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera: Working

Hi,

I had the same thing happen to my A590. I found the problem with mine was a micro swtch inside the battery compartment. open the battery compartment and you will see the small white tap that is supposed to get pressed when you close the door. I took mine apart and wedged the end of a toothpick under the tab and mine has been working fine ever since. I haven't been able to get an answer as to what the purpose of this switch is but it's been about 6 months and I have seen no adverse effects from my repair.

Good luck,
Bob

SDHC cards go up to 32GB, which puts the upper limit on the size of cards you can use on the A590. There shouldn't be any problem with a properly-functioning 8GB card.
