Question about Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera
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
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.
