No, you have to press the shutter release button to take the picture.
Press the FUNC/SET button. Use up/down to select Drive Mode (the rectangle, third item from the top). Use left/right to select the desired delay and press FUNC/SET. This sets the self-timer. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button as usual.

Try doing a reset in the camera tools somewhere, this fixed a similar problem I had.

SOURCE: Canon Powershot broken shutter/photo taking mechanism?

I hope you didn't chuck your camera, because this sounds like a problem with the CCD image sensor. I had the same problem with my Canon A85 and found out that Canon would cover the shipping and repair of the image sensor for FREE.

Please refer to this page, and then contact Canon (I reccomend calling; they're friendly, and the wait is not too incredibly long) to describe your problem. Make sure to mention that you believe the CCD image sensor is faulty, and you found the service notice they issued about the problem:

I am trying to get clear closeups of teeth (work in a dental office!) and I keep getting blurry pics. We do have a telephoto lens but I have no idea how to use it... Help?!


For the best photos of close-up it is recommended to use a tripod since the Canon A620 has no image stabilization. You can then use the macro setting and set if for the distance you will be shooting from and your photos will be a great clearer and with no blur

Remove your batteries and look inside the battery compartment. Notice that there should be three small phillips screws at the bottom of the compartment. Tighten up all of these screws.
