Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera ?

The flash is not functioning. - Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera

Answers :


Make sure the flash is turned ON, or to auto, if you set it to auto it will only fire in low light conditions, if it is set to off or similar it will not fire or function.

IF those settings are correct, take out the battery(s) and let the camera sit for few minutes put the batteries back in and try again, make sure they are fully charged.

Reset the camera to default settings from its menu.

If the issue remains the camera requires repairs, either the flash or its related components have failed and would need to be replaced or repaired. It would be best to take the camera to a repairer. If you are within warranty contact the maker of the camera or your dealer directly.

I have a Canon PowerShot SD500, Digital ELPH. It has been WONDERFUL! Since I have used it a lot and for years traveling, I am wondering how much longer it will work. Is there an average lifespan for these cameras? What camera should I replace it with if I want comparable quality and function? What symptoms will develop when it is reaching the age that it will need to be replaced? I hope it lasts forever as it is a wonderful camera. The only thing it doesn't do is video.

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!
