Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera
I've had my canon powershot a540 for about a year. yesterday, i turned my camera on to take a picture. the first time i pressed the on button it didn't turn on, but i just pressed it again and held it down for a little bit longer and it turned on. i took a few pictures and then turned it off. i set it in my lap--there's no way it got stepped on or dropped, and about five minutes later i attempted to turn in on again. the camera turned on and the lens was in the process of coming out when all of a sudden it turned off. i thought it was perhaps the batteries even though they were new but i've switched to batteries three times and still no luck. the camera won't respond to anything. the really weird thing is that the lens is still about halfway out.
any suggestions? please?
One suggestion you may want to try is going to www.canon.com there was an issue posted there with Power Shot A540's involving the battery holder that causes similar issues to what you are describing- if your camera has the serial # starting with the #'s posted online they will repair your camera regardless of the warranty status.
