Question about Canon PowerShot S230 / IXUS 179 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon powershot S230 Camera will not take picture now

Suddenly my flawless camera will not take pictures. I can snap a pictures and have the flash go off, but Display will not show picture or the CP flash card. The lens will open correctly and zooms. The Display works as well because all the option are available,flash, zoom, ect. I change battery and CF card, no help.
What other things can I try? Is there a reboot or reinstall default options?

    same problem as this person, camera seems to do everything except take photos. My view screen only displays black/purple with streaks on camera/movie setting. I can bring up old images fine, just can't take/record any new pictures. I live in Florida and leave my camera in the car from time to time.... I've come across an ariticle that indicated high temp and humidity may effect computer chip, images displayed in that article are similar to what I see in my display. How or where do I send my camera for service

    I am unable to take pictures. The camera comes on and when I take a picture, you can't see it on the screen. The lens and everything else works fine but I just can't take pictures. What's the problem?

No pictures


Look in the card slot with a flashlight to see if there are any bent / misaligned pins. If so, remove batteries and card and Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed). It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's there, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.

Powershot S1 Digital Camera: Flash won't fire


Make sure the camera is not in Document mode . Document takes a picture with added contrast so text stands out. Make sure the camera is not set to Infinity focus . When you select Infinity Focus, the camera automatically turns off the flash and auto focus so you get sharp, clear pictures. Make sure the camera is set to Fill, Auto, or Red Eye flash. See your camera manual for details about setting the flash.
