Canon PowerShot A710 IS ~ Will Not Stay Powered On

\015 The subject line pretty much says it all. \015\012\015\012I have a Canon PowerShot AS710 IS that has been a pretty camera up to now. The camera still works if I'm real careful while attempting to take a picture. The camera seems a little harder to get it powered on. Once the camera is powered on, any slight movement will cause the camera to power off. If I have the camera in positiion to shoot when I power it on, I can take a picture if I keep it still. I can set the camera on a solid surface and it will stay powered on until it automatically powers itself off. \015\012\015\012I really need to get this camera fixed as I use it all the time in my business. Please advise if there is a master reset or anything I can try to correct this problem. Thanks\015

Answers :

The situation I've described above was with the Canon power adapter, I was not using any type of batteries at all. The camera simply shuts down immediately once any kind of movement is detected. It's a little hard to power on but the camera will work once powered if kept completely still otherwise it will power off with any slight movement. I am just wondering if the camera image stabilization or some type of "tilt" factor can be reset.
Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may have reached their shelf life, and though brand new may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Retailers sell these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.


These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras

HI, I have a Canon Powershot Sd 790 IS and it totally quit working on me so I took it all apart and then put it back together and now it powers on okay, and the lense opens and extends, but the image is blurry. I'm thinking there is a reset somewhere so that the camera knows when it is focused and then stays that way. Am I right or is there another problem? If I'm right, what do I have to do to reset it? Thanks Marty


This is probably a problem with the focusing ring. The focusing ring is inside the lens assembly, and there is a ribbon connector going to the main board. There's a chance that the connector is slightly misaligned, or loose. Another problem co ... Digital Cameras
