Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera ?

The Connector port to the Computer wire is broke.


\015 You know you have to connect the wire to the computer so you can actually use the pics? \302\240Well that thing broke on the inside and now Im wondering since there's two other ports if I can buy a different wire. \302\240It says on the cover of the three ports DC IN 3.15V \302\240\302\240DIGITAL \302\240\302\240A/V OUTIf that middle port is the only one that I can use to transfer pics then I suppose the only use for this camera now is to see how far I can throw it down my street.Anyone have an answer?\015

Answers :

The A/V out is only for viewing on a TV with the right cable. Best solution would be to buy a memory card reader and use the camera till it fails in some other way. It is not really practical to repair the digital port since it's a soldered piece on the main board of the camera. The repair would require replacing main board. $$$
