Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera ?

Date?Time Screen stays on

\015 I turn on my camera and the screen is regular for about a second but it says "no memory card at the top" (There is a memory card in and it is working because i tried it in another camera) Then it goes straight to the Date/Time Screen. None of the buttons will work to get me out of it.\015

Answers :

The part where memory card went in is damaged like bent metal, you should buy new camera and be careful in the future putting in mem card the right way.
