Well this is a combination problem and solution. My daughter has a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX12 with the same problem. We called locally and e-mailed out of area camera shops and got zelch for help. The Panasonic people wanted $190 to fix it which is more than the camera is worth. So I would this place http://www.digitalcamrepair.com/ located in Euless, TX. The owner is Mike and he has about 3000 broken digtial cameras that he scavenges parts. He fixed our camera by replacing the top (it is all one piece) with a shutter button and it works fine now. From the time I sent it to receiving it back was one week and the price was $73 including shipping. Hope this helps.

How do I format the memory card on the Canon Powershot A610 camera


Hi,

The option to format the card should be in the camera's menu.

To do it properly consult the manual.

Other than that you can pop the card in a card reader, connect it to a computer and format the card that way.


Regards.

Blank screen on Canon A610 Power Shot. Can't view pictures taken or from memory card.


Are the downloaded pictures also black when viewed on your computer? If so, 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.

Protective lense shutter is stuck partially closed, causing black corners in the photos. How do I fix this, or remove the shutter completely?


This blog post outlines repair procedures for stuck lens covers. An A400 is used as an example. But for the A610, you might want to extend your zoom all the way out before removing the camera's batteries. Note that the A610 has four shutter leaves instead of two, so pay particular attention how they're assembled if you remove the lens ring. Also you'll be applying the ring loosening rubbing alcohol around the barrel's perimeter instead of the front as shown in the procedures. One other thing, try not to get any alcohol on the lens itself:

Good luck, and remember to do this only as a very last resort (try the other listed procedures first). Oh, and if you do decide to try the repair, please post how it went.

Defective CCD. Just happened with our A610 as well. Oddly enough just had our Canon ZR85 camcorder repaired about 1 month ago (for free) due to this same problem. Sounds like Canon isn't as forthcoming with the A610 tho. We called today and they said $100+ to repair or replace, but the following link seem to indicate that if you're persistent you can get them to fix for free. Now the battle begins ...
