Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
My Canon Powershot S3 IS started to shut down whenever I use the zoom lever. (For instance when I zoom in, the camera shuts down without any alert...) This happens not only in the photo taking mode but also in the photo play mode. The same issue: as I am previewing a photo if I use the zoom lever to get closer, the camera goes off. When I start the camera on the play mode while the lens is totally off this goes on happening.
I tried this with different sets of batteries, different SD Cards and the scenario is the same.
Did anyone had a similar problem? Do you have any suggestions? This problem yields the camera nearly disfunctional and I was not planning to buy a new camera until next year.
Thanks in advance and best regards,
Same exact problem here. I've received an email back from Canon tech support. $119 plus parts to repair, or I can swap for a refurbished model for $165 plus $10 shipping.
I was hoping to find some simple answer here. Sigh.
