Question about Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera
I bought this canon S5IS a couple of days ago and i went to take a picture today and after i took the screen went balck and now i can still take pictures but everything is black and i have no idea why. Everything om my screen is black when i try to take a picture or film something
It's very possible that the problem is that the shutter is stuck, which is a known Canon issue on the powershot cameras, mainly on the S2 and S3 models, which it happens after some time (weeks or months) thata camera is not used.
Unfortunately the repair of it requires a complete disassembly of the camera, including the lens, fix it, and then put back together everything.
Definitely requires the skills, tools and experience to do it, so it's recommended that a professional camera repair center is performing this type of repair.
If you look for a reliable and low cost repair service for it, you can look in ebay for such repair services.
Example, look for seller ID Great_items_2004 or with the keywords "Shutter black S3".
