Check your batteries. Your batteries may not be fully charged. One reason may be that you are charging batteries on a different AC Voltage supply, than what the charger is meant for; eg, charger expects 240 volts and you are charging with 110 volts.

Power Shot A620 Canon 7.1 mega pixel 3 years


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
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:

My Camera not taking pictures?


You mention that your camera has a moving LCD screen with 4 MP. Believe that you actually own a Powershot A80 instead of A480. This is important, because if this is so, Canon may fix this problem for you for free.

The symptoms sound like a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free (if A80), including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check this link for more info.

Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/300/400/430/500, IXY Digital 30/30a/200a/300a/D320/400/ 450/500

Have canon Powershot A75 3.2 Mega pixel camera .. Now it is having display issue. Once i open my camera lens come out power come but unable to see the image in lcd to shoot.. Can you assist


First try pressing the DISPLAY button. If that doesn't fix it then this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, 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 two links for more info:

Canon a510 lense problem


It depends on the age of the camera If it is new[ish] contact Canon Technical support team who may offer to inspect/repair for free. If it is older than this , just live with or contemplate the next camera. You taking it apart will probably not be a successful enterprise- and repair shops costs will end up well on the way to the price of a new improved high mega pixel camera.
