Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

The view finder was fine for one shot and then the next monent it went blurry with just black and white streaks. The pictures all turn out like the viewfinder. Can you tell me what is wrong and how expensive it will be to fix. The camera is about 8 years old.

    The expert replies all agree with the most likely fault with the camera and one expert has indicated the free fix from Canon is no longer available and the the camera is past it's design life. Sad news--I had an FTb that lasted over 25 years.

Hi! It looks pretty much that the camera reached it's break point. It will cost you atleast $190 for the repair and will only cost you $300 or less for a latest model of camera nowadays. I strongly suggest that you get a new one to replace this camera. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Brand new Canon EOS Rebel XS. Suddenly, image in the view finder is blurry. Auto focus seems to be working, and pictures are coming out fine. But sometimes, the autofocus focuses on the wrong thing, and so...


Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.

View finder


Ok. On your viewfinder, there might be a round dial. Turn it to adjust focus. Otherwise, sometimes viewfinders are like that... blurry, especially electronic.
