Problem will the colors in Canon S3

Hi there,

I dont know if its a problem or maybe this is the colors that the camera gives...

Almost all the time I have to fix the colors in photoshop (mainly levels).
Almost all the photos looks "dead", lack vivid colors.
I shot in P mode and at AUTO WHITE BALANCE.

I seached the web for same problem didnt find anything.
what could be the problem?
it seems like the camera's processor can't analize correctly what he seeses.

Stuck shutter on my Canon PowerShot S3 IS


Hi, Unfortunately the shutter has likely worn out, in that camera it can be fixed but costs upwards of $300 when you find someone who is able to fix it if you don't have warranty left on the camera. If you need more help let me know =)

The last time I used my PowerShot S3 IS it worked just fine. I went to get it this time, and I could only preview saved photos. When I turned it to take a picture, their was only a black screen? Other than...


The connection from ccd to camera has failed, probably due to dry joint, Canon dont own up to this, so it s shell out about £140 for a repair or chuck it in the bin!!!

The memory card does not stay inserted into it's slot and the camera shoes a memory card error.


Hi, I'm going to give you a link to a basic user guide.

http://www.google.ca/#hl=en&source=hp&biw=1224&bih=834&q=canon+powershot+s3+is+pdf+manual&aq=0v&aqi=g-v1&aql=&oq=Canon+PowerShot+S3+IS+PDF+Manual&gs_rfai=&fp=6a0673dc5c3f3912

It's a small PDF file which has a diagram on the correct orientation of the SD card and batteries I think the actual owners manual is lacking in these diagrams.
I think though that you are attempting to install the memory card the incorrect way.

Also I'm going to include a great diagram for the SD card locking switch that if in the wrong position won't allow your to format a new card to the camera.

This should solve your problem don't forget to format your card to teh camera before using.

Canon S3 IS - Images are darker or underexposed even in normal ambient light. Started happening just recently


If you are shooting using AUTO mode, maybe the settings were changed to a manual modes. If so, check for settings. Flash fires automatically only in AUTO. On manual modes you must force the flash to fire.

Hard Time Turning On


Hi,

For viewing you must turn to the right, it means your switch for record on is defective.
Your Canon repaircenter can fix this for you, if not contact Rotronica in the Netherlands for repair.

Horizontal Lines after-photo.


Hi, I don't know if this is going to be your problem, but recently the Canon anounced a recall for Canon S1 IS, due CCD problems. Most people with this problem complains of lines on the image, or the image going completely black. Some are having their CCD changed, but most of the users are having their S1 replaced for a brand new S3. Contact the Canon Technical Support, and maybe you get a S3 for free...
