Called Canon customer service. They supplied UPS shipping label via email and very short questionnaire to fill out and send with camera. Sent camera on 2/10, rec'd at Canon on 2/13 and today 2/19 my camera is back via FedEx.

LCD was repaired and USB device not recognized error is gone when I hook camera up to PC. Just like new. And all for FREE. This was awesome. Canon gets big UPs and kudos for this one!!

check the battery connections for corrosion if not that there is a 3.2 fuse (plastic) incasement under the on off button that may be open.

Blank black screen for my canon powershot S1 IS digital camera


This is a common problem with S1 IS and it is caused by faulty CCD sensor. Note that you can playback captured images without any problem but in capture mode all you get is blank screen. Will have to go to Canon but note that Canon repairs these models free of charge when it is the CCD sensor that stops working.
