If you're not currently using rechargeable NiMH batteries, recommend trying them to see if that corrects the problem. But either way, also recommend reading the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. I own many cameras and I never connect any of them directly to my computer to download photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

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?

E18 my canon powershot A150, got the whole E18 problem, it turns on with the blue canon screen, but then two seconds after it turns into a faded black with E18 in the bottom left hand corner. i seriously dont know whats wrong, and it hasnt even been a year since i got the camera, is there any way i can fix this problem? because at the moment buying a camera, my parents would not be too pleased :| it turns on with blue screen then it goes black and it says e18


E18 is the canon fault number for lens error. Is the lens stuck out? does it click when the camera is switched on? Try lightly tapping the lens on a hard surface. This sometimes resets the lens. If all this fails take it to bits! (but watch the flash ... Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

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.
