Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
I have a cannon powershot S1 IS and when i put new batteries in it it comes on then turns itself off. I have tried different batteries and the same thing happens. Can this be an easy quick fix? if not how much will it cost to fix it./
Hi. It can be a problem with flash capacitor. To check if it is the case you should be able to power your camera at least for 10 seconds. If you can not power your camera for this time from batteries, try to use external DC 7.4V 2A power supply. After powering your camera just follow this procedure. 1. Turn on the camera. 2. Turn off the flash by pressing flash button (be sure that flash is OFF but not in AUTO regime). 3. Turn off the camera. 4. Turn on the camera. If after these operations camera can be powered from batteries and you can make pictures than the problem is in the flash capacitor which should be replaced. Or you still can make pictures with your camera without using a flash.
