Question about Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Digital Camera
This is a common problem with Canon and usually need servicing. You have already tried changing the batteries. Few tricks that we usually advise :-
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.
If problem still persists, it could be a hardware failure or even a problem with electronic circuit board. In any ways, unless the camera is under warranty, it is not advisable to send it for repair as the cost of repair would be comparatively high as compared to the cost of the camera.
