My camera worked fine last night while I was taking pictures, however, I couldn't get it to power up today so that I could upload my pictures. I spent half the day recharging batteries, buying new batteries, and searching the Internet for solutions.
It turns out that I just needed to switch the batteries around. The positive and negative battery chambers are mislabeled in my camera. Duh! Works fine now. Hope this helps someone.
The sd1000 manual says that you will get this error when you have too many pictures on your memory card (aprox 1000). I am not sure how many I had on my 2GB card but it was a lot. I deleted about 50 - 100 pictures and then it started working again and the new pictures downloaded to the computer.
If you have a connection to the camera, go into my computer and get images directly off the camera using scanner and camera wizard, microsoft's default program. This will at least allow you to transfer your images until you can resolve the software problem.
If you have no connection to the camera via your computer, you need to try some other troubleshooting steps to get a connection. I will post those below in the next post.
Try running camera directly on DC from charger and see if it stays functioning.
If it does, they you either have:-
1) a faulty Lion battery
2) the battery detect circuit in the camera is faulty (reporting low battery and forcing shutdown)
3) the power switch on top of the camera may be leaky or partially collapsed
4) internal power supply circuit in camera has developed a fault.
Good luck...hope that the issue is the battery.
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...
I opened up mine today and found out that all you needed to do was put the plastic gear back into place and it's A ok. Open up the camera and when you're facing the front, check the little plastic compartment on the top right to see if the gears are in place. I fixed it and everything is A ok now. :)
