Canon S70 does not work

My Canon S70 suddenly upon turning it on, immediately zooms out to max and does not allow me to do open the menu. I have tried different batteries and CF cards, but nothing works. None of the other function buttons work and if I hold down the menu button for 5+ seconds it does not return the camera to it's factory settings. Any ideas????

Re: Canon S70 does not work

I was experiencing the same problem - I think the Button and Zoom had become jammed down slightly. I simply lightly applied pressure lifting the surround of the button up! My camera is now working perfectly.

Optical zoom problem in movie mode

Your camera is not broken. That's by design. Canon cameras do not allow optical zoom use while in movie mode. Canon claims that using the optical zoom in movie mode would cause excessive noise in the movie. However, you can use digital zoom in movie mode. You'll need to go into the menus (press the menu button) and turn digital zoom "on" if it's currently off.

Camera refuses to zoom out

I had a similar problem. The lense extended when I turned the camera on and immediately retracted and turned off by itself. I pulled the memory card and then reinserted/reseated it. It appears to have fixed my problem.

I cannot look through images or even delete them.

Try upgrading the firmware at your local dealer.

Canon S70 does not work

Canon Technical Support is the next place to go. This is a firmware error- maybe not a correctable problem except by replacement
