I have had my canon 870is for about 1 1/2 yrs & love it-I have never had any problems until today-the battery flashed red(dead) & I removed it & charged it...Well, now since I put it back in...


Depending on how long your camera has been put away for, and in what conditions it could be either with the camera or the battery itself.
If the battery is older it won't hold the charge, so even charging it and immediately placing in the camera it won't have enough energy to power it on and stay on.
You can try to purchase a new battery for the camera, make sure it is the manufacturer indicated battery. Often people try other batteries and they don't work. it does make a difference.
This company is very reliable http://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/Canon_Powershot_SD870_IS
and they also clean the camera as part of their repair services.
Make sure you tell them what is going for it could be something with the built in flash, or a camera sensor.
Try the battery first.

Is there a fill in flash setting for the canon 870is?


Press the button with the lightning bolt icon until the lightning bolt appears by itself on the screen. It will now flash on every shot.

I have a canon powershot A470 and it fell in water. after i removed the card and batteries of which still worked and neither were wet, i let the camera dry for a couple of days. it has turned on since and...


It's really hard to get water out of a camera. You can allow it to dry out but still have water inside... and the longer it's in there, the more chance it's going to cause metal parts to corrode and rust.
If you don't want to open this camera up and do some work to dry it out (this is tricky and you run the risk of damaging something as you open/close the camera.
Another last ditch method is to remove the batts, and card, leave the compartments open, and then put it in a sealable plastic bag along with an open pint container of silica gel (you know, that stuff they put in the box with new cameras etc. to absorb moisture). You can purchase silica gel in quantity at a hobby shop and it's actually reusable if you follow directions.
Leave the camera and the container of sil.gel. in the bag for several days-at this point you're just hoping to save a camera that's most likely not going to be saved.
Other than that, you could send it in, but to be honest, used electronics such as cameras are more expensive to fix than they are to replace.
The newer powershots have better resolution, and more features so if you love this camera, I think you will be blown away with the newer ones with more features... and the prices are fairly reasonable too.
Hope this helps you make the call...

Water damage


PROBABLY NOT, BUT WHAT YOU MIGHT DO IS SEE IF A REPAIR SHOP WOULD AT LEAST TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND SEE IF IT IS AT ALL REPAIRABLE AND GIVE YOU A QUOTE. CHANCES ARE THE REPAIR WILL BE SO COSTLY, IT WOULD BE CHEAPER TO REPLACE THE CAMERA. SORRY, BUT THIS IS ABOUT THE BEST SOLUTION I CAN OFFER IN THIS CASE. YOU CAN FIND CAMERA REPAIR ON GOOGLE UNDER CANON POWERSHOT REPAIR SERVICE. IF I CAN DO ANYTHING ELSE FOR YOU REPLY TO:

Lens won't retract


Mine has done this twice, both times requiring it to be sent off for repair, both covered under warranty though luckily. Both came back saying they replaced the shutter assembly. Camera is fixing to go back out for a third time (not shutter related). I've lost all confidence in canon with this one.
