Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera ?

Battery/memory card compartment wont close

\015 It seems that the door to the battery and memory card compartment won't close fully. When I try to close it, it seems like there is something in the way. Also, the little sliding latch thing on the door (the thing that springs the door open when it is closed correctly) will not move either. I am afraid that if I force it, I will break something. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

If it wont shut but still works fine just tape it there! if you think its a serious problem take it to a camera shop to get it checked out?
Don't force it. It could be that your memory card is in backwards. This is a common cause for your battery door to not shut.

Hope this helps!

I have a Bushnell trailscout 119900 and it wont accept any other SD card but the one that came with it. The one that came with it is only a 512 MB chip card The ones I have been trying to use are 2 GB SD card chip. Does the memory chip have anything to do with the problem. I can use the memory chips in my Kodak camera but they wont record the events in my Bushnell trailscout. What going on. the 512 MB works fine

Probably the first thing to try is formatting the card. There should be a function in the setup menus to do this. If it won't format or gives an error when you try the card may be incompatible.

Close-up picture Hi! I purchased my camera to take up close-up pictures of handmade greeting cards. The cards are 4" x 5 1/2" with lots of little details. I'd like to show as much detail as possble. I'm not sure what the best setting are? I've tried using the flash, but the whole picture just glares out, the light bounces off of the card and makes a big glare in the center. Without the flash, the picture is too dark. Can you help me figure out the best setting to use? Or, what kind of lighting
