Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera ?

I have a Canon Powershot A590. The battery life is HORRIBLE! Is this a Camera problem? They do not last long at All.


Answers :

Try getting some quality rechargable NiMH batteries and see if they last longer for you. The ones that I use in my A590 are rated at 2500 mah and last quite a while so far. I wouldn't recommend batteries rated at less than 2000 mah for this camera.

I had the same problem with my A590. I was using regular NiMH, all the way up to 2500 mah and still not getting many pics per charge; always dead at the wrong time. I switched to Eneloop batteries by Sanyo and I have to say they are incredible. Even though these ready-to-use batteries are rated at minimum 1900 mah, they work great and best of all last forever. I can take a LOT of pics before they run down. Very happy with the Eneloop with my A590.

When I turn on my Canon PowerShot A75 digital camera, it has streaky pink lines. When that finally clears up,(which may take several minutes) it usually has a pink tint. If I try to take a picture, the picture is streaky or pink. Is this the problem that Canon will fix free of charge? The problem has been getting progressively worse since last year. What do you suggest?


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

No pwer I am a high school photography teacher who inherited 20 Canon PowerShot S1 IS cameras (going on three years old). I noticed a few last year that didn't turn on even when brand new fresh batteries were put in. The battery chambers are clean with no apparent damage. I am now up to 8 cameras with this problem. They won't even power up when hooked up to the computer for downloading. i even changed the date/time battery just to see but didn't work. Any ideas?

I think I'm going to explode if I hear one more "worn out battery" explanation for what seems to be a pretty common complaint. This is my 3rd camera...all ending up with the same problem. I've had the Canon Power Shot A570 for less than a year. Someone suggested changing the settings...but even with brand spanking new batteries, I can't even get it to last long enough to get into the settings. There is clearly a problem here that has NOTHING to do with the blasted batteries.


Sounds like you have a faulty board in the camera or it could be something as simple as a software upgrade, I know some of the Fuji Hine Pix had the same problem and it was the software. Take it back to the Canon. ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

I have a Canon Powershot A710 Digital camera. The batteries never lasted very long before they ran out. I have tried various brands but the life per charge has always been very limited. Any suggestions? Michael


Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in today's digital camera. Some brands may have reached their shelf-life in the store, and may have problems just powering startup of the camera right out of the package.\015\012 ... Canon Digital Cameras

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
