Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Hi...I am having a canon Powershot A530 camera which I am using for the last 5 years. Now the problem is when I switch on the camera a message is displayed ' Memory card error + card locked'. I was using a 1GB memory card that contains some photos which I do not want to delete. I bought a new 4GB SDHC card and that also shows the same message. (I tried with unlocking the memory card, but not working). But the strange thing is when I insert a 16MB card, it is working and I am able to take photos. Pls give me a solution to fix this problem. Thanks and regards, Rajesh...

The A530 works with SD cards. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

SOURCE: My Powershot 450sd camera is not reading 4GB SDHC

SDHC memory cards are relatively new, and are sadly compatible with only the newest model cameras. For your model camera, recommend a maximum 2GB standard SD card. Fortunately, these days a 2GB card is very inexpensive.

Apparently IXUS 55 is not compatible with a 4GB SD card. Use a 2GB and you would be fine.

Hi, I am using Cannon A530 model camera. problem is :--- blinks "battery is low" after taking 5-10 pictures. given for repair. He is saying "Capacitor leakage" and costs about 1550-00...


First thing, get your camera back from that particular repair person, as Canon may repair this problem for free. 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 batteries aren't lasting long. 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 see this link for more info.

Hi I have a Canon Powershot A530 but if I want to take photo's it says card locked?


Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

CANON POWERSHOT A530 LOW BATTERY READING


Alicia,
Mentioned on my blog that the last paragraph of the advisory states:

""PowerShot A530 and A540 digital cameras affected by this phenomenon will be repaired free of charge, regardless of warranty status. Accordingly, if the opening/closing spring on the inside of the battery cover of your PowerShot A530 or A540 digital camera sticks out, please do not use the camera. Instead, please contact a Canon call center (1-800-OK-CANON) at your earliest convenience."

But also mentioned that if they don't help, a temporary fix is to insulate the spring from the battery contact plate. Merely place a small piece of tape between the portion of spring that's sticking out and the metal battery contact plate.

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.
