Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon Powershot S1 IS Image Freeze

This issue occurs in both picture-taking mode and movie-taking mode. In movie-taking mode the camera fails to write the movie to the memory card. The camera "locks" onto a random image and stops functioning. I cannot use the power switch to turn the camera on or off, nor can I take a photograph or command the camera to start/stop taking a movie. I must take out the batteries for 30-60 seconds, wherein the camera restarts itself. I have been unsuccessful in finding internet postings for this problem, so I am looking for ideas.

I have a Canon Powershot S1 IS(5 years old). I see only black screen now and I tried to see if the image is captured by copying the image to the computer ..Even that is black..How to fix this? Is this a...


Yes, it's a very common issue for your model camera. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

I think i put my camera in movie mode and now cannot take any pictures, how do i reset my camera to take pictures


Hi,

All you need to do is rotate the shooting mode selector dial on top of the camera to an appropriate shooting mode.

Try putting it on the Green color "Auto" and you will be good to go!

Image looks with white verital striped lines in playback mode


Mine had the same problem (except the stripes are horizontal).  I sent it to Canon and sure enough it is the CCD problem that many of these have.  The good news is that it is covered under a recall and Canon will fix it free, including the shipping.

Horizontal Lines after-photo.


Hi, I don't know if this is going to be your problem, but recently the Canon anounced a recall for Canon S1 IS, due CCD problems. Most people with this problem complains of lines on the image, or the image going completely black. Some are having their CCD changed, but most of the users are having their S1 replaced for a brand new S3. Contact the Canon Technical Support, and maybe you get a S3 for free...
