The camera (Powershot S5 IS) suddenly quit working. It will not power on (tried two sets of fresh batteries). Am I overlooking something very simple? Is it related to the small button battery that...



Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Flash won't go off when set to Sports


The camera will not flash in the sport setting unless you have a speed flash attached. because the sport setting is made for taking pictures at a fast pace and the internal flash does not charge fast enough.

Can't take photographs when flash is on


Hi
The powershot s5 IS does in fact have some strange behaviour issues especially on the first rev firmware. For example if you take 15-20 flash photos consecutively without powering down your camera the flash recycle times will increase to about 15sec, so you'll have to wait about 15sec before you can take another flash photo. The work around is to power down the camera and then turn it back ON. Another strange behaviour is manifested by its inability to lock focus after taking a "no-flash" photo, then popping up the flash and trying to take a flash photo. Again the work-around is to power down the camera, pop-up the flash and then power it back up. Confirmed these behaviours in two other cameras of the same model.

Flash speedlite 300


As long as it's an EX flash, it should be fine. Assuming that a T90 is a Canon...I have no idea about that.

How to power up a Minolta Program 3500 xi flash through a Canon S5 IS?


Im sure that model of Flash. Does the minolta flash fit the hot shoe of the Canon?
If it does then I would first try seting the flash to manual mode and adjusting that.
Let me know if the Flash does not fit and I will try to help you from there.
Take Care,
