Without warning, my Canon PowerShot A530 ceased to function correctly. I turned it on, and it automatically zoomed all the way in. I can now only take pictures like that, and none of the buttons except the on/off and the mode dial work. It was never dropped or exposed to any rough elements, so I'm at a loss as to what could've caused it. Any suggestions?

Wickedwahine Just today, the directional buttons froze up so that the up/down, left/right arrow buttons no longer work to scroll through pictures nor can I use them to navigate menu items. I removed the battery for 1 min as suggested in troubleshooting but it still didn't work. I also tried to press and hold the control and power button (just a guess) trying to trigger a reset. The directional buttons worked very briefly after that but it might just have been a fluke.
This may be an intermittant on the circuit board or the switch assembly inside of the camera. Was the camera dropped?\015\012\015\012I would not suggest trying to fix this yourself unless you have experience in this type of service and ha ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

I have a ES55 Samsung compact camera for over 1 year and it always worked fine. Now, for no apparent reason, when I press the switch button, nothing happens; the "press play button twice" doesn't work either, and when I connect it to the PC, the amber light get flashing but I'm sure the battery is charged. This seems to be a recurrent problem with other users, anyone has a suggestion to share, please?
The lens assembly could be stuck, or the battery could be low or weak. Make sure, first, that the contacts inside the battery are clean (clean them with a qtip and isopropyl alcohol). There's a couple of web sites that explain what things you c ... Digital Cameras
Brand new (one hour old) Canon Powershot A490 looks like it has a software bug. All the buttons used to work but now no button responds except fpr the left button when one of the two bottom buttons (camera and menu) is pressed. Pressing one of the latter then pressing the left button constantly cycles through the menus.
Obviously, you have a defective camera. Don't try to fix it or you may void the warranty....send it back. ... Canon PowerShot A490 Digital Camera

A Canon A570IS will power on and and everything works with external power (3.5-3.7V, 2A. 3rd party) but is dead with batteries (two fresh alkaline or NIMH AAs). I have used parts (from junk 570s) and have replaced the main board, button board, flexicable that includes on/off switch & shutter, leds, etc.. Again, lens, flash, storage, LCD, etc. work with external power, but not with batteries. I am at a loss. Any suggestions?
Since the external power works, we need to know, first off, if the battery terminals have continuity with the external power supply contacts. That will tell us an important part of this puzzle. The one hard thing about this problem, is that what ... Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera
