Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera ?

Great camera - but only had it 3 years and flash not working now. Salesman at London Drugs, where we bought it from, says not worth repairing. I find this hard to believe - very expensive for only 3 years working!!


Answers :

The salesman just wants to sell you another camera, but he may be correct in his assessment. Take it to a camera shop (not a department store camera department) or contact Canon customer service via their web site to arrange repairs. Be sure to get a firm price before you commit though, as the fix might approach the cost of a new camera.

As I pull out the LCD screen on my A95 the picture will come on at about 100 degree angle to the camera body. If I continue to move the screen to a use able position then the screen goes black again. I find this is the only angle that the screen will work at. My local repair shop says too expensive not worth it. The camera has taken some punishment over the years - any suggestions?


I would agree with the repair shop cheaper to replace than fix... but if your a do it yourself kinda person you can fix this the problem. sounds to me as if the one or more of the LCD wires have broke the following link is to a replacement screen you ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

I have an Olympus E-510 which is just two years old. The camera went completely dead on me with no notice. I brought it to a camera repair store to see if they could find out what the problem was. We tested the battery and it was fine. I then brought it to a camera repair specialist who told me that it was the circuit board. He wouldn't repair it because he said it wouldn't be worth it. Is it worthwhile sending in to Olympus to get a quote only to have them say the same thing or should I j

I have a jvc everio gz-mg157u hdd 30g camcorder/camera. My promlem is that the videos that are stored in the camera I can not find. When I go into my videos, it says that there are no videos stored but there is some video space on the hard drive that is used up. Also, when I press the record button, it records for about one second if even, and then it goes right back to the pause icon and records nothing. Can you help me out? This is a very expensive camera and I really need it to work righ

My Nikon d40x is roughly three years old and the lens has had to have been repaired twice due to it being dropped. Lens is working fine though now. Yesterday i was getting out my car and the camera fell out my bag, the lens still works fine but now the camera is refusing to take more than 1 photo and saying "card is full". Tried my brothers memory card in it and its doing the same although his memory card works fine with his camera (nikon d60). Someone help!

No power after working sucessfully for a couple of years out of the blue the camera will not now turn on, I have tried various different batteries incase it was this but find it very strange that the camera should just die like this when it has not been dropped or damaged etc. I keep being told by people that it will probably cost more to replace the camera than to have it fixed, I find this hard to believe as it wasnt a cheap camera in the first place. can anyone please help

My Kodak Easyshare V530 camera I bought about 2 years ago has been doing great, and all of a sudden after taking a pic the lens will not retract and it says "Camera Error #E45" I just moved and can't find my user's guide to see what this means.

I have a Sony Cyber-shot 5.0 which is about 6 years old. It was working fine on Thanksgiving. I tried to use it yesterday and get no image just vertical lines, pink and white if that makes a difference. The message in the camera says "Rec. folder is 101MSDCF."
