Hi

You said it started working again, so I don't see what 't00nz' is getting at with his answer.

It sounds to me like your flash was not working... but that would only stop it from taking pictures and not video as the flash is not used for video.

So... I would have to then guess it's a loose connection somewhere or your shutter button is defective. If you or somebody else opens the camera you can check for loose connections and see if there is anything physically wrong with the shutter button itself and the button under what you are pushing with your finger.

The outer button assembly that you are pushing on is easy to replace, the inner button is NOT easy to replace.

And yes, if it's acting up and its only a few months old, send it in for repair under warranty for sure!

Good luck

First look on the back and with the camera on press the DISP or DISPLAY button. If you still have a problem after doing this, then it needs to be repaired. You mention the camera is only 4 months old, and is thus still under warranty. Call 1-800-828-4040 or 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666) to have it repaired for free under its warranty. And here's its warranty:

I've had the camera for about 6 months now. It's been fine until recently. Now it is intemittent whether it wants to take a picture or not. You push the shutter button sometimes and nothing...


It's faulty and new enough to be under the manufacturer's warranty. There is no simple fix for intermittent faults like yours. so just send it back for repair/replacement.

When using the flash is takes 4/5 seconds before I can take another picture. The taken photo appears for about 1 second then the screen goes black for 4/5 seconds before I can take another picture


Friend,

You are using a 10 MP camera. Imagine the size of the picture taken. It is massive. And so would the size in megabytes. To save those many MBs is a time consuming affair. that is what takes 4 to 5 seconds. And during that time the camera can do nothing else.

Do not worry. The camera is fine. Just that you have a very good camera and do not realize it.

As regards the photo being visible for a second only, you can change the settings and have the picture on display for a longer duration. That would be fine as while you are viewing the pic, the camera is busy saving the pic file. You would not feel those 4 to 5 seconds at all.

Sometimes fine lines but other times like a burst of light. This just started happening recently. But when I take a picture in the dark with the flash the photo turns out fine. Any answer as to what caused this? Thanks

Doesnt turn on


It could be something more serious, but the problem you describe is frequently due to corroded battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, clean the contacts at both ends of the batteries, and reinsert them in the camera. This cleaning cures the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

I have a Kodak M1033 camera that I bought just over 6 months ago. I took it on holiday it worked fine and then suddenly it switched off. Since then it only powers up for about 5 seconds, shows a unfoc


I'm not sure why this works for me, but I think it's worth a try:

1) First, take your SD card out of the camera.

2) Then turn on your camera and let it turn itself off.

3) Read the next step first and be ready to press the shutter release button (take a picture) right after the LCD screen turns on

4) With the camera lens pointed down towards the floor (aim down), turn on the camera. At this point the LCD screen should not be blurry anymore. Immediately press the shutter release after confirming that the LCD is not blurry. If the camera stays on and you can review the picture (most likely of your feet), then you are almost done.

5) Turn off the camera and re-insert your SD card.

5) This may not be a permanent fix, but point the camera lens downward whenever you turn on the camera. It should work normally if you do this. Mine worked normally (meaning I don't have to point it downward when I turn it on) after doing this several times. Your results may vary.

My second camera, Same Problem


Have you tried cleaning the battery terminals in the camera with some very fine emery paper or sand paper? Especially if you live in a humid environment.
