The camera comes on but when i put vcr mode on the power light flashes twice and the screen stays blank,have bought a new battery for£25 and still have the same problem.
Lee, i had the same problem i think. does the camera turn itself off after 10 seconds or so?? if so you have to check the ribbons on the bottom of camera. there are 5 screws on bottom of camera 2 on the side 1 on the bottom right of the lcd sreen. after all the screws are off check all the connection to the camera, ribbons might have come out a tiny little bit just push them back in make sure you do all of them. doing this fixed my problem hope it helps you. jeff

A camera is a very complex device so any internal damage would need a proper repair, it may only be a disturbed internal problem but with fiddly screws and the need to keep dust free a good repair place is needed.
As for you just check and refit any items you can like a card or battery etc, if new and bought with a credit card there may be an insurance on it or you can call on or contents policy maybe, as there are lots of policies on new items for a short time in respect of damage claims.
If a cheap cost to purchase and not worth the cost of repair then auction on ebay to recover some money.
The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. The A570 IS is relatively new. Your camera is likely still under warranty. If so, contact Canon for warranty repair (see the following link):
SOLUTION: Fot the past two years, fully charged NiMH and new alkaline (generic and fresh Name Brand batteries) in my CX7530 always gave a red light and immediate power off -- symptoms of low batteries. Today I tried it again with the same problem. This time, I folded up a small piece of stiff paper to depress the small Lithium battery module detect switch in the battery compartment, and put my NiMH batteries back in -- it WORKED for the first time in two years! After removing the paper and reinserting the batteries, it still works. I suspect this somehow recalibrates the low battery detect circuit. I hope it helps you as well.
This happened to me one time. Judging from the date of this, you probably have found a solution. The bottom line is that the camera has accidentally been placed in "Standby" mode. It is the lever surrounding the back of camera record button. When this is moved to standby, the VCR mode works, but nothing for the Camera mode. Hope this helps.
