Hi Brian, the padlock icon signifies a function is locked - eg. auto focus or something similar. You need to read the manual to find out what it really represents. Removing it will depend on your preference but first find out.

Your computer probably isn't recognizing the camera. You might try inserting the SD card into a card reader. Your computer may recognize that and allow you to download the pics. Also, if you have the software that came with your S3 IS you could try reinstalling it on your computer. I had to do that a couple of times and it worked.

No. The histogram is simply an aid to taking better photographs. It will not print when you print your picture.

And if it does not want to download the pictures, just install Zoombrowser EX. You still can download this software from the Canon website. The drivers you need, are also there.
Without the appropriate software, no computer knows what you are connecting. We are so used to smart phones and tablets that we think all things are detected correct when connected. In the days the Powershot S3 computers still needed drivers and software. Most computers still do.

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

You are sure the battery is still ok?
Please don't try to switch on the camera as long as it is connected to a power supply or a computer with the USB cable, because it won't switch on that way. Only with a correctly charged battery.
Read other post of me to find out what to do with your battery, or just ask if you can't go on.

You can try and get a specialist repairer to change the battery, these are precision items and difficult to repair yourself. I would just live with it.

Why not try a set of rechargeable batteries? they can be used 5 times as long as alkaline batteries, every time you charge them. And when you have charged them yourself you can be sure they doe have the capacity needed for the camera. There is no way of telling alkaline batteries are full, because even when they are exhausted they will give the same voltage on your multimeter as a new battery.
I don't think it has to do with the date battery, because that would show you the date / time menu on the display.

Having said that, you may download the Canon software from http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_a_series/powershot_a530#DriversAndSoftware. Depending on the operating system on your computer, you may have to start with download and installing an older version of the ZoomBrowser program and then applying the updates.

At all shutter speeds? Does it appear consistent? Does the shutter stay open more or less the same amount of time even if you change the shutter speed?

Check for some blockage, or turn it on, zoom out the lens and see, if not, take it to a service center.
