Question about Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera
Camera will turn on/off and the lens retracts properly. It will shoot a photo and that photo displays on the lcd screen.
But menu, set, etc. do nothing. Can the camera be reset somehow? Do I need to take in for repairs?
If your button board has kicked the bucket, resetting the camera is not going to help any. This is a repair problem, sorry.
