Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera ?

I bought my camera in july 2006 - recently it runs

\015 I bought my Canon Powershot A540 in july 2006 - recently it runs through batteries like crazy sapping energy out of the batteries in record speed. What's up?\015

Answers :

I´ve got the same issue. If you use the batteries that were in A540 in another camera, does it still work?
Canon told me today that both the A530 and A540 have the same battery lid problem that gives false messages"change battery".

My camera was recently bought at goodwill, and the CCD imager needs to be replaced I think. Every time that I go to take a picture, there is a streak of light running up and down the screen when I am near a light source. Will the fact that I bought it at goodwill effect the warranty in any way? Will it still be free to fix?


If it's under warranty and the camera doesn't have any sign of abuse and you have the warranty card for it then it should be free for you to get it fixed. I don't see why not. If the service center asks where you got the camera from tell them it was ... Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera

I just recently bought a kodak zd710. When i received the product, i turned on the camera and i was immediately prompted to set the date and time.

I have a canon rebel xti with an 18 to 55 lens .. I recently bought an external flash to sit in the hot shoe .. now when I removed the flash from the hot shoe .. the cameras own flash will not pop up and work... I can manually pop the flash but it still will not work..  I thought that when I bought the flash at the camera store the sales person turned off something on the camera for the new flash to work.. is there something I need to change in the menus to get the cameras own flash to work.....


I had the same problem. \015\012Look closely at the hotshoe. Inside it, way over to the side, under one of the tabs on the side, is a tiny metal strip.

Brand new battery won't hold charge. Camera is three years old. I bought an extra battery when I bought the camera. They both seemed to go bad at the same time, so I recently bought two new lithium batteries, just like the originals. I'm having the same symptom--the charge lasts for only a few photos--maybe 50 without the flash.


If this happens even to new batteries, it may no longer be an issue with the batteries, but it can be an issue with the camera itself. check the maximum number of shots that the camera can take with the batteries per its specification. if it should p ...
