Question about Canon PowerShot A640 Digital Camera

1 Answer

A640 Lock-up Hi, The camera was working fine up until today when I took it out of the case, it was stuck, locked-up somehow. I haden't used it in a couple of days (had never had a problem with it before), and now, the only sign of life when pressing the ON/OFF button is the small green light underneeth turns on but nothing else powers up or happens. The only way to get the green light off again is to take the batteries out. Also, the lens is stuck open, and the zoom partially out. What should I do? Has this camera taken it's last picture...or is there hope? (Also, I'm currently living/traveling abroad and don't have my original box/receipt with me.) Any help would be GREATLY appreciated..!

Take out the OTHER battery, the one that maintains the date / time and then the camera can 'reboot' cleanly when you put some fresh batteries in it.

'91 LS400, trunk will not open. key will not turn, electric latch switch clicks but won't open. valet lock in open position. Tried 1) disconnect battery, reconnect battery, use switch, push down on...


If you hear the sound of the electric latch switch, then it's working but stuck somehow. Just put the key in the switch and turn it to the right and then pull up the trunk or ask someone to help you. it will open. I tried it today and it opened with me. It was stuck from inside by some kind of a broken plastic pieces. Just removed it and now it's working fine. good luck

Hello there! Focus ring lock means that some how the focus ring is not turning freely.
