Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon Power Shot S1 IS camera has a problem of smeared or no pics

The problem is not constant but comes and goes. I can be taking pictures or video with no trouble and suddenly the display in the view finder, lcd screen and the picture produced by the camera will be a partial picture, a series of color smears or completely black. Some of the pictures will be very red and the subject will be misshapened almost like it was melting. The black ones may be completely black or have reddish bands across them.

I will appreciate any feedback on this problem, the cause and a possible cure.

Loud electrical shock noise when flash goes off


I had the same problem with my camera a year ago and I took it in for service and they repaired it. I'm sorry but I don't remember what the problem was. It cost me about $90 for the service.

Flash is Stuck


You have to yank on the flash, its the only way. Mine gets stuck most of the time, but does open on its own on rare occasion. it must be a defect of the model.
