Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
When I switch the camera on, I can only take one or maybe two photo's before the screen goes black. A hand appears on the screen and then all indicaters appear as well but the screen stays black. When I power off and on again then I can take another foto again.
That sounds like a sticky lens shutter. They usually have to be replaced, as they usually will need parts. When the camera is working look inside the lens and take a picture(with flash turned off). You should see a black shutter door clicking shut in the lens. When the camera acts up, look inside the lens again. If the door is staying shut full time, that is your problem.
