Question about Canon PowerShot S230 / IXUS 179 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a Cannon Powershot S230. The mode selector is loose.

I have a Cannon Powershot S230. The mode selector slide is loose and slides back and forth without making a selection. It is stuck in picture mode so I can take pictures, but I can't review shots taken or take video. How can this situation be repaired? Any help?

My Cannon SD1000 Powershot is stuck on video and will not switch to photo mode.


Could be related to a stuck shutter which is a common problem with this camera. Check that all physical parts are moving and do an unstuck process to free the shutter if this is the issue. See the link for more details:

Cannon powershot SD1100 IS card locked!. How to unlock


Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Speed switch stuck on 2


Suggest you open the drill, and see if the plastic slide for the dual speed switch, is stuck in the body of the drill.
From this, you will know if it's a simple fix of correcting the slide action of that plastic selector slide, or if it is going to require replacement of the switch itself.

The plastic selector slide, slides back and forth in a groove, on either side of the drill body. Could be something simple. Perhaps some dirt, or metal shavings, that can be removed.
Maybe there is a burr on that plastic selector slide. Perhaps a little lubrication will help also.

If it's the switch itself, parts have come loose inside due to breakage. Replacement would be necessary in this case, unless you are really prolific at fixing broken switches.

I TURN ON MY A70 AND I GET A VIEW OF THE LAST PICTURE I TO TOOK.


The camera is stuck in picture review mode. Try sliding the mode switch back and forth a couple times, and leave it in camera mode to see if this corrects the problem.

If that doesn't work, try another card.
