Try playing back pictures you know were captured properly ( either with another properly working camera or with your camera before the problem with quality has appeared ). If the image is ok in playback but 'noisy' in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty /on its way out. Ask Canon if they repair CCD faults on this model free of charge.

Picture in View Finder perfectly clear, but out of focus


I would check IS(image stablization) setting and continous shooting setting to make sure these features are turned off. You want to experiment with different IS settings and definitely turn the continous shooting mode because the continouse mode may not focus 100% in order to shoot multiple shots. Hope this helps. -James. P.S. In my case it was too difficult to distinguish the quality of focus in the VF or LCD so you may not see the focus issue on them.

Black LCD monitor on Powershot S410


that is not a malfunction, if the "display" button is pressed, the LCD turns off, (black), but if the mode switch is rotated to movie or panorama, it comes back on but will go black again if switched into the other 2 modes. when in one of the 2 modes that show black, simply press "display" and the LCD will come back on.

FYI "GURU", the CCD malfunction manifests as a purple colored screen with various levels of distortion, not black

Canon S1 IS:the "Information View" is stuck in display at powerup


I had exactly the same problem and I was very frustrated. Then I learned that Canon published a Service Notice in October 2006? : the CCD Image Sensor on some Canon cameras becomes defective. Canon says they will repair it free of charge for repairs and for shipping if your problem is indeed caused by a malfunctioning CCD sensor, even if it is out of warranty. I called them at 1-800-828-4040. I was offered 2 options.
Option #1): send it in for repairs. (If the CCD isn't the problem, they will repair it at a charge of at least $140.)
Options #2) except an offer for a newer camera (the SD 890 IS) at a greatly reduced price + shipping.
I chose Option #2. Good Luck.

No picture


Your problem is undoubtedly the CCD image sensor. Under normal circumstances it would be cheaper to throw away the camera & buy a new one, but...

As of Oct. 6, 2005, Canon issued a Service Notice pertaining to several different models, including the S1 IS. Here is an excerpt:
" It has been confirmed that the connecting parts of the internal wiring of the CCD used in affected products may become disconnected, especially if the affected products are stored or used in high-temperature and high-humidity environments. If this occurs, the signal is not output from the CCD normally in Shooting Mode, which may cause a distorted image or the absence of an image. This malfunction can be confirmed on the LCD monitor screen during shooting. The same malfunction also appears on the recorded image."
"Canon's Response: Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will repair, free of charge, the products listed above exhibiting the above-mentioned malfunction if Canon determines that the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with this repair."

Follow this link to the Canon website with all the info you need to send it back for free:
Service Notice: CCD Image Sensor Advisory

You should get the camera back within 10 days. Mine only took 6 days! Good Luck!
