Canon Power Shot S1 IS

A few weeks ago when I was videoing my grand daughter my Canon Power Shot S1 IS screen all of a sudden had lines going across and then went black. I turned it off, on etc. and it stayed black. I could view pictures I had taken but looking at the screen or through the view finder it was black with lines moving across. I put in new batteries and for some reason it worked.

I didn't have problems for a while then last night it happened again while taking pictures. The screen went black with white moving lines. You can still view pictures taken but if you take a picture it looks just like the screen is looking, black. I tried everything I could think of and new batteries. All of a sudden it started working again this morning.

Have you seen this happen before? I really love this camera!

When I put the memory card in and turn on the camera, it keeps saying memory card error.


Hi,

If camera show Memory Card Error, Check whether the card is inserted properly or not. For SD card, check out the card lock switch is in the correct position and not stuck in between.

You can Format the memory card in the camera using the Setup Menu option (Format). Please be aware that formatting the memory card will remove any images currently stored on the card along with any other data.

If after formatting the card do not clear the error, try another memory card. If this occurs with only the one card it is likely that the memory card is defective, if the error persists over more than one card the camera may require service.

Rating the solution is highly appriciated...Good Luck

Need to set date stamp but,the menu screen skips over the date stamp on/off and its set to off. POWER SHOT A620


You can only do this when the camera resolution is set to postcard mode.

See pages 33 and 34 of the user manual (courtesy of the Emerson College website).

I have a 5 yr. old Canon Power shot SI camera. It


Hi Mike, the bad news is that your camera is beyond any hope of economic repair.Your camera displays the absolute textbook symptoms of this fault.

It has suffered a ccd failure, these often occur on cameras which are five to six years old and replacement costs far more than the camera is worth (that's if you can get the spare part, and it's not a DIY job).

Your camera has the infamous Sony 5MP ccd fitted; huge numbers of these failed prematurely due to a manufacturing defect and there was a quiet recall program whereby affected cameras were repaired for free (but only if the customer complained), usually by Sony. Apart from a couple of Sony and Nikon models this process ended last September as by then almost all affected models had pased their design life expectancy. Failures after that are therefore no longer considered to be premature.

The problem which causes ccd's to fail is now well understood and manufacturing processes were improved by all manufacturers, but you still shouldn't expect ANY digital camera to last more than five years without failing for one reason or another. Even top of the line professional Nikon models only come with a measly two year warranty: I can buy a new car for that with a seven year warranty and the car has far more which can go wrong... Sadly, late model highly electronic AF 35mm film and all digital cameras just won't last as long as simpler models.

Sorry there's no prospect of a fix, but I hope that you found my reply to be of some use. If so, please rate my answer.

I cannot see anything through the viewfinder or LCD other than menu, etc. The lens cap is off.


if the camera will take pictures then the probem is in the play back. If nothing works the sensor is bad. It would be best to send it back to canon.

The electronics that run the sensor are gone. The camea can be sent back for repair, but the cost may be more than it is worth. New cameras like yous sell for $ 299.99 and up. If it was mine, I would toss it and buy a newer camera. You will get new features and more resolution. If you have a lot of accessories and really like that old one, you may try finding a used on in very good condition. Be aware of used since you dont know what problems you will be buying. Make sure the camer has a return period or warranty so you can return it if it doesn't test correctly.

Model Power Shot S1IS - my view finder is blurred but the photos taken are clear. Did I touch the wrong button??


Next to the eyepiece is a diopter adjustment. This allows you to focus the viewfinder just for your eye. The camera lens is not affected. I can adjust the diopter and shoot without my glasses haveing to be on.

Putting a date on the pics i take with a canon powershot


Hi Steve, thanks for coming to FixYa.

First, for your model of camera, you do know that you can only Print the date and time the pic was taken on the photo right? It does not embed the date and time data into the image, like some cameras do.
Here is a direct quote from the manual if you want to check my information. You will find it on page 21. "Setting the date and time settings does not cause the date/time stamp to appear on the images."

This may/maynot be what you wanted, either way let me know with a comment. I can describe how to set the date and time in the camera's setup menu for you if you want, and/or I can tell you how to make sure you print the date and time on your photos. Otherwise, have fun with your camera and please rate my solution a fixya.

Very poor quality pictures


Sounds like the sensor is bad, At this point it is better to just buy an new camera, as the cost to repair your old one may exceed the cost of a new one.
