Question about Canon PowerShot S70 Digital Camera

Canon Powershot s70 not working at all! :(

Our camera just stopped working one day, even after we had used it during the day.... we didn't drop it or get it wet or anything. Now we are unable to even get it to turn on....when we slide the cover off, nothing happens. We've charged the battery and have taken out and reinserted the memory card, but to no avail. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help! :)

Nikon coolpix s70 has blurry pictures even after resetting to default settings. Camera has not been damaged or dropped.

Hi you have lens unit defective. Even if you didn't damaged and dropped, its appearance problem is the lens unit, you can bring to your local repair shop. It is quite easy problem. some point they could save part, but time is money. they would want to change the part. your part from nikon usa is very expensive, but from ebay it is very cheap. It is used but it would be reliable in most case. If you buy and bring it with camera to your local repair shop, they would charge less labor then you bring camera only. repair shop would consider that you know what it is going on. Thanks and kindly! ( labor they would charge around $25 to 75 depend on what they want to charge)

Can i use my memory card from my s70 with any other canon digital camera

Yes. But not with all other Canons. The S70 uses CF cards. Some other Canons also use CF cards. Some use SD or SDHC cards. You'll have to look at the specs to see which models use which.

Apparently, Some water worked its way into the camera circuitry. You need to stop trying to get it to're only making things worse. Remove the card and battery. Bury the camera in a bowl of dry rice for a few days to absorb any moisture.

My camera is a PowerShot A460. It can take pictures but all white

It looks like you took pictures on Manual mode and didn’t set the Exposure Compensation and Shutter speed properly. If you can get good pictures on Auto mode, your camera is ok.

The canon powershot s70 comes with an external battery charger. Open the battery door (bottom of the camera, slide it away from the center of the camera body) remove the battery (push the little brown tab and the battery will pop out) and place the battery in the included external battery charger.

Canon S70 does not work

Canon Technical Support is the next place to go. This is a firmware error- maybe not a correctable problem except by replacement
