Canon PowerShot A710 IS ~ Will Not Stay Powered On

The subject line pretty much says it all.

I have a Canon PowerShot AS710 IS that has been a pretty camera up to now. The camera still works if I'm real careful while attempting to take a picture. The camera seems a little harder to get it powered on. Once the camera is powered on, any slight movement will cause the camera to power off. If I have the camera in positiion to shoot when I power it on, I can take a picture if I keep it still. I can set the camera on a solid surface and it will stay powered on until it automatically powers itself off.

I really need to get this camera fixed as I use it all the time in my business. Please advise if there is a master reset or anything I can try to correct this problem. Thanks

    I had a series of powering off problems and now cannot get it to power on at all. The problem is not the batteries or the connectors. The camera is stuck in the lens extended position and will not even shut down. It does not respond at all with all new batteries. This a710is is a little over 1 year old and has never been dropped or damaged. There appears to be a flaw in this cannon product that the manufacturer is willing to address for 100 bucks plus postage.

The situation I've described above was with the Canon power adapter, I was not using any type of batteries at all. The camera simply shuts down immediately once any kind of movement is detected. It's a little hard to power on but the camera will work once powered if kept completely still otherwise it will power off with any slight movement. I am just wondering if the camera image stabilization or some type of "tilt" factor can be reset.

Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may have reached their shelf life, and though brand new may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Retailers sell these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

PORTRAIT SETTING ON Canon Powershot A710 IS GIVES EXACTLY SAME PHOTO AS ON AUTOMATIC. NEED I ACTIVATE SOMETHING ELSE TO GET A BLURRED BACKGROUND?


Portrait provides extra sharp focus on the subject. It also opens the aperture some, and may in SOME cases give you a blurred backbround depending on the distance of the subject and background to the camera.

If outdoors, consider setting the camera to manual flash so that it will lighten the subject. If indoors, consider turning off the flash. You may need to provide better external lighting on the subject, or use a tripod and ask the subject to hold still during the picture.

Try increasing the zoom (best is to set it to maximum), and then adjust your distance from the subject to get as close as possible. Note that you still might be standing relatively far away because of the zoom.

Another way to experiment further with focus and blurred backgrounds is to use aperture priority (Av) mode on your dial. Use the right/left button to set the lowest "f-number" on your screen. The lower the number, the greater the aperture. All other functions of your camera will automatically compensate. Again, use max zoom in taking closeups with low "f-numbers". Also experiment with the manual focus to pay particular attention to achieving sharp focus on your subjects eyes.

You have a very capable camera. It can do what you're thinking of. You just need to practice with it. It's digital, experiment with the above techniques. Throw away the bad pics and keep the good, noting which technique worked best for the lighting and situation.

Image Stablization not functioning


Image stabilization cannot correct for movement of the subject (fan). Image stabilization only corrects for movement of the camera/photographer. If you take a picture of the ceiling fan with the flash turned on, or set the ISO to a higher number, you will see that the fan is less blurred because you have increased the shutter speed.
