Question about Canon PowerShot S30 Digital Camera
Oddly enough, as I was looking at this thread, I was fiddling with the camera and it decided to turn on when I opened the lens cover. Obvoiusly, 2 minutes earlier, it wouldn't come on, as that was why I looking at the forum!
sorry, I don't have a solution, but I suspect there's an issue with the contacts in the lens cover. Every moving part will have an Achille's Heel, I suppose.

Nothing hapened when I open the door. In fact I was not abble to open completly the door because a plastic gear on the slide behind the door was broken. If you have the same problem just remove the gear to freedom the door and it will start again. The gear is more to get a nice feeling when opening the door than to make it works.
As I use to say... it works for me !

Thanks for Trying,
I cannot review the pictures either. Nothing lights up with good batteries, no grinding...

Can you preview existing pictures? If not, then there's an electrical problem in there somewhere.

A possible solution for this problem is to throw the thing in the garbage! And buy another brand that doesn't build in obsolescence. We've hardly used this camera it's taken good pictures for as long as we've had it but we've really only gotten about 500 photos out of it. When you think about the cost per photo considering we spent almost 400 bucks on it. Well, you do the math. I'll not buy another canon. I'll spend less money for similar quality and if it breaks like this piece of crap, I will not feel as ripped off!

First listen closely when you open the cover. If you can hear a grinding or whining noise then you are dealin gwith a jammed lens. If nothing at all happens then either the main switchis broken or a fuse has failed. Any of these problems are not easily solved at home. Sorry.
