Question about Canon Sure Shot Z90W 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

Open Question

Canon Z90W 35mm camera

I am on my second Z90W now, the first one having been replaced by the retailer as an act of good faith, (It was sent for repair to Canon UK but came back with a "no fault found" report). A couple of years after getting the replacement the second camera has now developed the same fault. Before I have used the full roll of film, the camera starts to rewind, it is intermittent and can happen at any part of the roll or ocassionally not at all. I have tried changing the battery a number of times but that does not seem to be the problem. I would appreciate if anyone out there can help to remedy the fault as the camera is now out of warranty and if I do pay for repair I may get the same response as the first time from Canon. Robert

I had a similar problem today with my camera. I'm not an expert on Cannon cameras or any cameras for that matter, but this is what I did to fix the problem.

I removed the bottom cover(has 6 screws i believe) carefully sliding the cover up starting near the battery cover. Holding the camera still I checked what gears I could to make sure they were free, but one small gear that moves up and down was stuck. I applied a very small amount of force to the gear to free it, reattached the cover and all the screws, and BAM! I was back to taking pictures.

Hopes this helps.

p.s if you can't find one of the screws its under the battery cover flap :).

SOURCE: hello, just found my 35mm

Did you remember to push the rewind release button, on the bottom of the camera first? Failure to do so will either not allow you to rewind the film (without applying a lot more force than needed), rip off the film sprocket holes, damage the camera's internal gearing, or any number of other nasty things.

There should be a small button on the camera's bottom baseplate, press it in and it should rewind smoothly.

Cant take picture

First reaction, when your camera acts strange, is to switch it off. Then when the memory access light stops burning, or flashing, you can remove the battery (Batteries) Give it a few seconds, and then reinsert the battery. Now the camera will start from scratch. So if the problem was caused by a software problem, it should be solved.
Only when after switching on, the error reoccurs, you have a bigger problem, that perhaps only can be solved in a photo store, or at the service centre, closest to you.

It needs help and must be sent off the the repair facility to fix. It may be more cost effective to buy another camera then to fix this one. Check with a local camera shop for more.

Make sure the flash is coming up all the way. If it gets stuck even slightly down from fully raised, it will do what you describe.

I agree, digital P&S won't work as well as your Olympus. Plus all your shots will have to be stored on a hard drive-
