my PowerShot sx530 it turns of right after it turns on, I recharged the battery and that didn’t help. It was working fine for a year then in Malaysia while on travel just spontaneously decided to stop working one day and turned off. Now it only powers on for a millisecond before shutting down. I checked the lense to see if there was dirt in the ridges and that didn’t solve it. Maybe a fresh battery but part of me thinks it’s just defective now. Has anyone solved this problem?
Ok, how old is your battery? The least expensive solution to try is a new battery. Even though yours might indicate a full charge it may have lost its capacity and goes flat instantly when you boot up your camera.
