Canon A630 just stopped working, lens stuck out/open
One idea: Can you connect to a computer over USB? Trying connecting it and turning it on to whatever setting you use to download photos. If your computer can still see the camera there's hope.
I checked the Canon website and there's no new firmware update available, so that's not an option.
I read the manual and the only reset option requires using the menu on the LCD, so that's out as an option too.
One last thought: Does it have an power adapter option? Perhaps you could plug it into wall power in order to completely eliminate the batteries from the circuit. If that works you know it's the battery.

My camera the screen dont work is black, it take picture, but i have to look thru the hole
These point and shoot cameras are known for such problems. I have purchased many off ebay and worked on them. Some I wish I had never touched and some were easy fixes. When you dont use them for a long time they seem to go bad, the batteries are a big problem. Contacts in these get crusted with acids and just one flake of that will get on other parts and cause all sorts of problems. Black screen is huge problem with all makers. My advice is look for another camera unless you have soem very small tools and take it apart. I fixed on just by readjusting the ribbon cable just a fraction and the screen came back alive. Good luck

Transcend 8gb poswert
Although the Canon Powershot A630 is a great camera, it has an age.
It is made for SD cards and since the A630 saw the world there were several changes with SD cards. The cards grew in size and till 4Gbyte they were called SD card. Nowedays you only can get few 4GByte cards called SD. Soon after the 4Gbyte mark was reached they started to make SDHC cards. that is why most 4Gbyte cards now are also SDHC. Till they reached 32 GByte not much changed, only speed was becoming better. After the 32 GByte the SDXC cards came.
For every step up, the equipment that used SD cards had to be changed. The newer apparatus can use old SD or "lesser" SD cards. The old apparatus only are capable of using SDHC card if a software upgrade is done. But only apparatus close to the introduction of a new card could be upgraded with new firmware. So if Canon never offered an upgrade, you only can use normal SD cards and no SDHC cards. Your Trancend 8Gb card is definitely a SDHC card.
If you want a "Big" card for your Canon, try to buy a Platinum 4GB SD card.Please take care the advert does not say SDHC or SDXC
