Canon Powershot S1 IS

Hi.

When trying to take photographs the screen is black and no picture can be taken. All other functions seem to work. I have tried the Tv solution recommended for the S2, but this does not work. Any other suggestions, please.

    I have the same problem where the screen and view finder images are black - although the information about the photo to be taken is still visible (eg. focal length etc.)

Hello, You should contact Canon about the situation. Let them know you are aware of the problem CCD sensor on the S1 camera. Actually S1 is repaired free of charge because of the CCD problem. You should suggest that your camera probably has the same defect as the S1. See what they say. If you need more info please advice. Arpi

Take a picture and download it to your computer. If the picture is also black, then this might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info (make sure you read the latest reader comments in the first link. You might get very very lucky if Canon fixes this with your model camera :-)

Blank black screen for my canon powershot S1 IS digital camera


This is a common problem with S1 IS and it is caused by faulty CCD sensor. Note that you can playback captured images without any problem but in capture mode all you get is blank screen. Will have to go to Canon but note that Canon repairs these models free of charge when it is the CCD sensor that stops working.

PROBLEM WITH POWERSHOT S1 IS


But have you actually taken picture? Take a bunch and upload them to computer to see whats is there. The black screen . Can you see a shadow image on the screen if you look along it instead of at it. If you can then this would indicate the backlight has failed. If nothing is to be seen then it is more serious. In case it may be a simple connector coming loose try gently squeezing the casing in the region of the base of the screen. Do get onto the Canon technical help team on the website. if it is a youngish camera, there may be a replacement offer. But repair I do not think is an option.
