Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

2 Answers

Pictures white with horizontal stripes

After success for several years, my S1 IS started making pictures 90% white with horizontal stripes. I am quite sure it's nothing in the menus. The display looks ok before taking the picture. I have tried different cards. Thanks for any suggestions.

    I had a similar problem. Washed out pictures with horizontal stripes. My camera is just over 5 yrs old and didn't even think it would be covered by waranty. I was shopping for a new camera and stumbled across this particular post. Visited the link and contacted Canon. They sent me a shipping label, repaired my camera, and sent it back with ablolutely no cost to me. It was fast too. The whole process took about two weeks.
    Thanks for the info Old Marine dude.

    Same problem here. Just tried to use the camera after not using it in 3 months or so. Everything seems to work fine mechanically, and I can properly view images on the flash card, but trying to take a new picture is impossible. Glad to know I'm not the only one.

Stripes horizontal


The manual on page 122 says:
Vertical streaks appear when you are shooting a very bright subject. Cause / Solution : The smear phenomenon is occurring. This phenomenon is not a malfunction.
So when you are photographing in bad light, and some where in the frame is a bright light, from that light, white vertical strips can occur.
But you mention Horizontal lines. If this happens in normal light, outside, or in every light condition, something else must be wrong.
I wonder if bringing a 10 year old camera to a repair store or Sony service centre is worth doing.

White screen


This is a problem with shutter not fast enough opening to take a picture indoor shows the horizontal lines. In sun light it is too slow and over expose the picture. Not worth the trouble to fix, buy another camera?

Image looks with white verital striped lines in playback mode


Mine had the same problem (except the stripes are horizontal).  I sent it to Canon and sure enough it is the CCD problem that many of these have.  The good news is that it is covered under a recall and Canon will fix it free, including the shipping.

Loud electrical shock noise when flash goes off


I had the same problem with my camera a year ago and I took it in for service and they repaired it. I'm sorry but I don't remember what the problem was. It cost me about $90 for the service.

Horizontal Lines after-photo.


Hi, 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...
