Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
My Canon S3IS suddenly started behaving funny on one fine day.
Problem # 1 > Camera is not turning off at all.
Problem # 2 > When Camera is on, it stays always in the picture preview mode and cannot take any pictures.
Workarond available for Problem # 2 > If I switch on the MOVIE Mode, the go back to PHOTO mode and then I am able to take photos. But even with this, the camera does not switches off at all and the only ways is to take the battery out.
Appreciate any solutions to rectify this issue.
Thanks in advance
