Question about Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera
I have a Canon Powershot s500 and all of a sudden all the fuction buttons on back do not work. In picture mode I cannot change settings and in playback mode I cannot even get menu to come up. The buttons seem dead.
Possibly two (2) reasons:
1. Software/firmware glitch. Reset the camera by removing the battery;
2. One of the buttons is stuck preventing any other from working. Determine which one and tap on it a couple of times as a temporary workaround. Ideally, the unit must be opened and the contacts/ switches cleaned with contact cleaner.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
