Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A510 Digital Camera ?

Canon powershot A510 all of a sudden no power??

\015 My Canon camera was working fine until this evening when my daughter tried to use it. She knew she needed to change the batteries and when she did she put in some cheapo's....bad mistake?? but I don't think enough to kill the camera. Now the Canon wont power up or anything and the lens is stuck out. The only response I get from the camera is a tiny green light when I try the power button which the green button quickly flashes right by the eye viewer and then goes off. It is like some internal battery has died or something. Is this possible and/or fixable at home? Help please!!!\015

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.


These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras

I have a Cannon PowerShot SD750. The LCD suddenly went blank - dark all through, last month Dec.,08. I tried everything - reset, disp button, menu, power down, etc. to no avail. The best answer to my search for solution recommends sending it back to the manufacturer for a free correction of the problem which they say occurs when the camera is left in a too-hot-for-it environment, like inside a car on a sunny (hot) day. My problem is which canon address or telephone number do I contact? I am base
