My powershot A610 will not power on. what happens is the green power light flashes on for a second but no matter what the setting, it immediately turns off. i've checked the batteries in other gadgets, and they are working fine. the lens does not appear to
be obstructed by anything, and i've wiped off the connectors to the positive and negative
battery nodes. this camera has not been dropped and is fairly lightly used considering
i've had it for three years.
i had no problems the last time i used it, though that was probably about 2

Press cursor-down to toggle the macro setting. Press cursor-up to cycle through the flash modes.
The flash modes are described in the "Using the Flash" section of the Basic Guide (page 9 in my copy) and the macro mode in the "Shooting Close-ups (Macro)" section (page 10). If you need the manuals, you can download them from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_a_series/powershot_a610#BrochuresAndManuals
My camera stopped working some time later after being dropped.
If you are brave (or desperate), try this... I found it was not too difficult to open the camera up. Take all the screws from the bottom, sides and under the card and usb, and inside the battery compartment. They are all different lengths so keep some record of what goes where. Then I made sure the multiway connector underneath the top was firmly in place. That was all I could see that I could fix myself. And what luck! when I put it back together it worked.
