My Canon Powershot G3 will not respond. When I turn it on a get a rapidly flashing green light on the back, and when I try to connect I get the message on the computer that there is no supporting software. To try to reinstall the software on the camera I uninstalled the Canon software, reinstalled it, and then connected the camera, hoping that the software would reinstall whatever was corrupted or missing.

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!


Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera
