SOURCE: When I rotate the selector

Hi,

I am Sorry to hear regarding the Problem.This is a ' Lens Problem ' which is Quite Common on these Models.

It is not worth to get it Repaired, as the Cost of repair would be quite high as compared to the cost of the new camera.

There are a number of things you can try:

1. Ensure batteries are fully charged

2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand or other dirt etc

3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck

4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 2 minutes and refit

If no luck then we have to try some things that could possibly result in damaging your camera so should only be tried if happy to take that risk...

5. Try thumping the camera into your other hand, by thumping into your hand you are trying to jar the mechanism loose, by using your hand you will hopefully not do it too hard or it will hurt. You may need to do this a dozen or so times in different places to work. I have found the flat of the camera bottom into the flat of your hand best..

6. If the lens is stuck in the out position then remove the batteries and try twisting the lens first one way then the other, do not apply excessive force when doing this or you can break gears, you are trying to reposition not force... Likewise if the lens looks like it is crooked you can try pushing it back into position. This has a higher chance of doing more harm than the thump so please be careful...

7. Dismantle the camera, not for the faint hearted, you need to dismantle the lens assembly into the main body of the camera

If no luck then only other option is a serviceman I'm afraid, be sure to get a quotes as camera repairs can be uneconomical

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How do I turn flash on and off?


The multi selector is the round control on the rear of the camera with the OK button in its center.
The flash mode button is the top button on the selector, it has a lightning flash icon.

Press the flash mode button on the multi selector.
Highlight the desired mode and press the center of the multi selector.

The flash modes are:
AUTO; Flash fires automatically when lighting is poor.
AUTO WITH RED-EYE REDUCTION; Reduces "red eye" in portraits.
OFF; Flash will not fire even when lighting is poor.
FILL FLASH; Flash fires whenever picture is taken. Use to "fill-in" (illuminate) shadows and back-lit subjects.
SLOW SYNC; Flash illuminates mainsubject; slow shutter speeds are used to capture background at night or under dim light

The selected flash mode icon appears at the top of the monitor.

We have installed GM40 time. which control shaft on / off cycle i.e 4 hours on / 2 off. i checked selector switch postion, i.e continuous on (upper position) and continuous off (lower position) in this...


I have GM40 timer sitting in front of me.
I cannot understand your question because I do not know what the 'control shaft' is.
If you mean the black-colored FM1 clock dial with captive trippers, then this dial is supposed to rotate continually as long as timer has power.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/FM-1-Grasslin-Intermatic-20.jpg

Grasslin/Intermatic GM40 page
http://www.intermatic.com/products/grasslin/electromechanical%20time%20switches/multi-voltage%20time%20switches.aspx
The manual says quote:
With the manual switch in the middle position, the GM40 is in automatic mode and will switch at the programmed times. In the upper position "I", the load is permanently ON. In the lower position, "O", the load is permanently OFF. End quote.
In any switch position, the FM1 clock dial will continually rotate.

If your Load does not turn on-and-off according to the trippers set on FM1 clock dial, then 1) wiring is suspect or 2) if dip switches are not correctly set before applying voltage, and timer could be damaged.

The timer arrives with dip switches pre-set for 277Volts.

You can also manually rotate clock dial clockwise to observe when the load turns on-off.

Add a comment and give more information.
I would like to know what the 'control shaft' is, and what voltage you are using, and what dips switch setting you have, and which wires are connected to each terminal.

If i am getting e68 error can just the button be replaced


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.


The E68 is indicating a push button is stuck,

To investigate further the console would need to be serviced/torn-down. I'd try the suggested test program first though. To answer your question "can just the button be replaced"...
No unfortunately, The buttons are a part of the entire control behind the console/panel. The test I'm going to post is quite long so I'll post it in two parts.
PART 1

FUNCTION TEST SEQUENCE


1. Press and hold Select and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds to reset the control. The buzzer will sound 1 time and "rES" will be shown briefly in the display.


2. Immediately after, rotate cycle selector knob 5 turns counterclockwise to the second position from the bottom. Press and hold the Options and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 2 seconds.

The control will enter test mode, the buzzer will sound 3 times and all LED's will rapidly flash. After entering the test mode, the cycle selector knob can now be rotated to select the following tests:

Rotate the cycle selector knob clockwise from the starting position:


0 turns: All LED's will flash.


1 turn: Drive motor runs; heat source is on. Drying LED is lit. "H" and the control thermistor reading will toggle back and forth in the display.

SEE Below for remaining test program instructions...

580ex off camera shuts down after a minute or so of standby


No and no, the flash is by default programed to shut off after 1 minute .If you were using the flash on-camera, the flash would automatically power itself on when camera activity is detected but when the flash is detached, it doesn't wake back up.
To change this you have to turn off the auto shut off in the flash menu:
1. Power the flash on
2. Hold down the back light /C.Fn button until "Fn 00 0" appears on the screen
3. Rotate the selector wheel until you see "Fn 01 0"
4. Press your selector button down so that the 0 begins flashing
5. Rotate your selector wheel to change the 0 to a 1
6. Rotate the selector to the "Fn 14 0" position and set it to 1

7. Press your selector button to save this parameter
8. Press your Mode button to return to the main screen

Now your flash stays on as long as the flash switch is turned on ON, and as long as you have juice in the batteries.

Do not forget to turn off the flash after you are done.You can reverse it anytime, but you have to read the manual for that..

Same setup can be found in the manual

Canon power shot s3is, picture quality is not good, we have use flash every time. otherwise images are very blurred and dull. what change i have to made to my camera. any suggestions will help full for me


If you can are turning the flash off and on, you are no longer in the "Auto" mode. Rotate the top selector dial to select the green "Auto" position. This will enable the camera to automatically select the best aperture and shutter speed based on the available lighting. It will also decide whether it needs flash or not.

As you gain confidence in your abilities, experiment with the other settings on the dial. May I suggest first trying the "P" program setting. This is similar to auto, but will enable you to turn off the flash during low-light level shots. Still the camera will select the best aperture and shutter speed based on the lighting. But in very low lighting, you may have to keep the camera extra steady (such as with a tripod) to minimize camera shake as the picture is taken.
