Question about Cameras

3 Answers

I won a Canon PowerPoint S3 IS at an eBay auction; it was in the working camera listings. It turned out that in the finer detail, the owner said that everything worked except for the "Memory Card Error" found in the display window. I posted this a few days ago. I now have the camera, and I've tried two different memory cards (one came out of another Canon PowerPoint, and it does work) and neither works. Still have the same message;"Memory Card Error." This item was incorrectly listed as working....I'm definitely feeling ripped off. Any more suggestions? Should I go ahead and dispute this sale. Is the camera repairable? I really appreciate your help. One of you also mentioned adding a link to eBay. I would be happy to..can you tell me how to do this? I am really, really, green on computer. For 30 yrs. (since college) I hadn't touched a computer until 9 months ago. I appreciate any help.

Start a dispute with ebay on the item. if you sign into your account the link should be there.... it must be within 30 days of the auction. do not let the seller delay you in filing your claim. also do not let the buyer suggest he will refund you the money on the camera (unless he actually does it) if you will drop the dispute as they cannot be refiled. If you used a credit card thru paypal or even online you have another method of getting your money back... but file a dispute with ebay first.

The camera is repairable at a repair shop, at your expense, probably $60 or $80.
It looks like contacts in camera sd socket are broken.

Return it and ask money back with paypal if the seller does not give you full refund, Ebay covers up $500.

Black screen on my canon S3 Si camera


This sounds like a common image sensor failure. Unfortunately Canon stopped fixing this problem over a year ago. Parts are NLA.

I assume you are referring to an Ebay auction item that you won.

You must always remember to factor in the additional shipping costs as well as the initial purchase price of the item.

The shipping costs to your particular location will always be listed just below the purchase price on the Ebay item's auction page. This price can vary for each buyer depending on their location so it is listed seperately. However, when you purchase an item you are also responsible for paying the listed shipping cost as well.

Please comment back here to this page if you have any details to add, have any questions, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

HOw much i can sell on ebay ?


Go onto eBay, do a search on this camera model, and select "completed auctions only" in the filter panel on the left. You will then see auctions that have ended and what the final price was.

You can buy in Ebay a broken camera, and get the parts you are lokking for, or send them to a professional camera repair center so they are fixed properly.

"Memory Card Error,""Card Locked"


Don't Panic there should be no trouble with this sale, The Canon Powershot takes SD memory cards which stands for Secure Digital, Secure in the fact that the memory cards have a tiny switch on the side of them that can be locked so that there cannot be anythong written or deleted from the card.
This is probably what has happened to this camera, nothing to do with the actual camera but with the SD memory Card.  To fix it just switch the tiny switch on the side of the Sd memory card to the unlock position and everything should work fine!!

P.S Can you post the link to the ebay auction as this would be very helpful.

External display


If you do a Google search for 'digital camera parts' the first listing is a website that can help you. The LCD is $70 with shipping.

The website name is: Darntoothysam com, then search by "S3 IS" and you will see it.

How do I know this? I own the business, that's how. We specialize in LCD and lens repair for affordable prices. If we can help please let us know.
