Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera ?

The lens is stuck, will not come out - Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera


Answers :

First check your batteries. Make sure that they're fully charged and that there's no corrosion on the batteries or the battery terminals inside the camera. Powering the camera on while you hold the zoom button may free the mechanism and restore operation. The problem may also be caused by sand, grit, dust, etc. in the lens zooming mechanism, and you can try to clear that by blowing compressed air from a compressor or keyboard cleaner at the base of the lens where it's attached to the camera. Chances are, though, that the camera will need professional repair. If the above DIY fixes don't help, you'll need to take the camera to a Canon dealer (NOT the camera shop in a chain store) or check the Canon web site for repair procedures and prices. Be sure to get a firm price, not just an estimate, before you commit to anything. The price of a fix can approach the cost of a new camera, and repairs typically only carry a 30-day warranty.

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!


Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

I dropped my Canon Powershot SD750 digital camera and the extended lens was stuck open. I had no other options so I opened the camera up to fix it. I corrected it, but after I put the camera back together it takes poor pics. In normal light conditions it over exposes and pic looks really bright and also has many lines going through the picture? I love the camera and don't want to buy another one. I tried a different memory card and reset function under the menu.
