Foldable lens cover doesn' t open and closed fully... Thanks.


It's usually merely a grain of sand or dust jamming it. But it's also usually easy to fix. This link outlines repair techniques for a stuck automatic lens cover. Recommend trying the less "risky" ones first before considering the end of the lens.

Blank Screen on a Canon Powershot A610


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help:

Canon Powershot a610 dropped, lens stuck half way, won't move, gives E18 whenever one puts it in the mode to take a picture, no view through lens. Is the camera toast?


Hello there,
The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a few things below.
There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.
If trick 1 will not work out, try this.
2. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn on the camera and then give it a couple of firm whacks on the side. Make sure nothing is blocking the lens and wait for it to fully retract.
Let me know how it goes.

Protective lense shutter is stuck partially closed, causing black corners in the photos. How do I fix this, or remove the shutter completely?


This blog post outlines repair procedures for stuck lens covers. An A400 is used as an example. But for the A610, you might want to extend your zoom all the way out before removing the camera's batteries. Note that the A610 has four shutter leaves instead of two, so pay particular attention how they're assembled if you remove the lens ring. Also you'll be applying the ring loosening rubbing alcohol around the barrel's perimeter instead of the front as shown in the procedures. One other thing, try not to get any alcohol on the lens itself:

Good luck, and remember to do this only as a very last resort (try the other listed procedures first). Oh, and if you do decide to try the repair, please post how it went.

Canon A610 Lens problem


Unless you have prior experience dismantling a digital camera, it could be quite tricky.
HERE is a service manual that should help. Its not the A610, but they are similar.
If your camera has a plastic ring around the lens, then it should be quite simple. Use a jeweler's screwdriver and try to pry out the ring. Once that is done, it should be easy enough to remove the lens barrels.
However, like I said, if you are not too familiar with this, it is best that you get it done by a pro. If it costs too much, then try giving it a shot yourself (nothing to lose anyways), and if you should screw up, there is always the option of buying a new camera :)

Canon A610


I wouldn't recommend taking this camera apart unless you are quite skilled with electronic repair. Even then camera lens assemblies are somewhat of a specialty area. So I guess the answer to your question is yes they are difficult to repair. A good camera repair shop should be able to help you for around $70.

Powershot a610 will not power on


Junk in the usb mini connector could be shorting the main board out. Try a can of electronics duster in the port. Cheers!
