Question about Canon PowerShot S230 / IXUS 179 Digital Camera
I am on vacation in England with my Canon PowerShot S230 only to find that it is not working for the first time in 4 years! I am able to see photos saved on the card but when i switch to camera mode - i get a black screen. If I take a photo while camera is in this state, it registers that a photo has been taken when I move back to "play" but it is a black screen - I'm pretty sure that no actual photo has been taken. In case this helps - just before I left home I offloaded all photos on camera ino computer using iphoto...it did seem a bit glitchy as I did that. Is there a way to "reboot" camera? without attacthing to computer? Any help will be greatly appreciated - the xchange rate for US dollars blows so I don't want to buy another camera over here if thsi can be fixed...thanks
