Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
I've had my S1 for about two years now. I've used mainly the Canon rechargable batteries which have lasted about a week of heavy use before needing recharging. Alkaline batteries lasted less long, but were fine for emergencies. Recently I've needed to recharge after a day's use or less. And about a week ago my camera stopped working at all; it will turn on and immediately off. I've tried it with newly recharged batteries and several sets of new alkaline batteries. Any suggestions? I love this camera and have a new baby...so I need it to work!
The only thing I can suggest is that the metal connections on your camera have corroded due to the long life of your camera. I had a similar problem where any batteries I used would not work, regardless of what kind of battery it was. Turns out I had a nice greenish layer of corrosion on my connections which I sand-papered off. This might be a little tricky if your connectors are way inside of a battery holder, but it can be done nonetheless. Try taping some sandpaper to the flat end of a pencil and clean it out that way. Hope it works.
