Sometimes in some cases the shutter blades gets stick if left unused for few time. thus no image is formed. try switching it on and off few times, otherwise, the problem may be due to faulty CCD or inoperative mechanism of the shutter assembly. In both the cases you have to get it repaired from the repair shop.

I don't think anything is wrong with your camera. Just check the Manual.
Your camera has a view finder, to make pictures. Yes the little screen on the top left (Backside) As an extra the camera has live view, that can be switched on and off. because the live view consumes lots of power, it is advised to use the view finder. If you want to switch it on, you can do so in the settings menu. There go to the live view en switch it on.

Camera will not power on


HI,

The battery contacts are dirty.

The batteries are inserted wrongly.

You have a problem with the lens mechanism.

Shake camera and listen for anything rattling around. If metal it could short anything out.

Camera does not want to work


Sounds like you need new batteries. Put in good quality ones. If you are using rechargeable-remember that they do not last forever.

Have you tried cleaning the battery contacts inside the camera? This simple fix (use a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper) clears about 90% of the non-charging and quick shutoff problems with these cameras.

Replace battery sign in New canon A590si camera.


You're using the wrong batteries. You need to purchase lithium batteries. They are quality batteries for high powered, battery operated electronics. Personally, I have a battery charger and use rechargable duracell batteries. (HR6/ DC1500/ NiMH/ 1,2V) Gives you approximately 16 hrs before having to recharge.

when digicams are dropped most problems occur because some cables or wiring connections got loose. try taking it to a camera specialist to have it checked because if you open it yourself it might cause more damage.

Dimagez3 Battery Options


Hey bray598,
According to the manufacturer this camera comes with AA alkaline batteries so unless you bought defective batteries the ones you purchased should work fine. I would make sure the batteries are inserted properly, and make sure when you turn it on the battery cover and/or the memory card cover are closed. I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Won't stay turned on


Since mine was only a day or two old, I took it back to the store and got it replaced. Since then, it's been fine. Hope you have the same option.

Camera just wont turn on...help please


I opened up mine today and found out that all you needed to do was put the plastic gear back into place and it's A ok. Open up the camera and when you're facing the front, check the little plastic compartment on the top right to see if the gears are in place. I fixed it and everything is A ok now. :)
