Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Power On problem

I bought a Canon A75 a couple weeks ago and yesterday I was taking some pics from time to time, shutting it off in between, and when I went to turn it on again to take some more pics, it would not turn on. I also noticed that the lens was not fully retracted and the lens cover was open. I've tried everything I can think of...new batteries, remving the flash card, etc. and it still won't turn on. When I press the on/off button in 'record' mode, the lens moves in or out slightly but that's it. Any ideas or suggestions before I send it to Canon for warranty repair? Thanks.

Try the simple stuff first. Install fresh batteries. Remove the memory card. If that doesn't fix the problem, it is time for warranty.

Camera shuts off when shutter button is pressed.

I'd try replacing the battery first. It is common for a low power battery to not allow the camera's computer to read what it is supposed to do correctly. If the new fully charged battery doesn't fix it, I'd then contact customer service.

Why does canon camera shuts off when trying to download pics

Usually it's because the battery is getting low. Cameras will often shut down to prevent losing data. Make sure the battery is fully charged or the camera is plugged in if it has an external power adapter.

My screen does not show what the pic will be.

Take your camera into Canon as this is a known problem and they may repair it at no charge depending on your location. For example, in Australia you would refer to the following document... http://www.canon.com.au/support/customer/default.asp?DXI=KnowledgeBase/Customer/KBArticleForm&File=KB01634

Canon powershot a75

I have a similar camera - there should be a slider button that lets you toggle between taking pics and viewing your pics. It is to the right of the screen (on back) and just under the selector knob on the top. When slid up (camera icon) you take pictures. When slid down (square with arrow icon) you view pics.
