Question about Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

My flash stopped working - can I repair it myself with a part?

Was working fine and is only a few months old. Wasn't dropped or anything. UGH!! I have no good repair folks in town and Best Buy (where I got it) is no help...

Thanks in advance....Jill

Contact Canon Directly. They will have you send it in and they will look at it. if it is less than a year old and no signs of abuse they should fix it free of charge.
It will also be quicker working with them directly instead of trying to go through a repair center.

The charge adapter maybe faulty.
If your cell phone is a few months old, then it would be still under warranty. Take it back to the place where you purchased it and have it repaired or replaced under warranty.

I have a Samsung Digital camera was working fine. I just turned it on and their is a black smudge on the display screen. It wasn't dropped or anything just appeared out of no where. It doesn't


Hi
As you say the camera is only a month old it should be under warranty, better advised to take it to the authorized service center. By the way if the smudge is on the LCD then I feel that the LCD is damaged due to pressure or force at that particular spot.

Flashing 8888 will not make coffee


I had a similar problem. It stopped working mid-brew, then flashed 8888 incessantly and I couldn't get anything to respond. I unplugged, turned it upside down overnight to drain. Next day it worked fine and has been OK since.

Just a few months old and stopped steaming, steams frowater entry


I have taken one of these completely apart and found it is glued together except for the platinum plate on the bottom. It is held on by circular lock clips and will break w/o proper tool. I see no way to repair these and the cost of sending in will probably be as expensive as a new one. I have seen them at Lowes and TuesdayMorning for about $100.00. Have tried to get a repair manual from Rowenta-good luck!

Camera really messed up!


Have you tried taking out the batteries and leaving it alone for a bit, then loading new batteries? I would try this first before anything. Good Luck.

Taking pictures


First look on the back and with the camera on press the DISP or DISPLAY button. If you still have a problem after doing this, then it needs to be repaired. You mention the camera is only 4 months old, and is thus still under warranty. Call 1-800-828-4040 or 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666) to have it repaired for free under its warranty. And here's its warranty:

Flash: PCB Replacement v. New Bulb!?


I had the same issue. The flash is set to go off, the camera assumes it went off, (as the record metadata shows) but it doen't go off at all, and the piture is underexposed.

I bought the 100 page repair manual, which is ONLY a dissassemble/reassemble manual with NO diagnostics. (Got it on ebay) So I was atleast able to get to the capacitor and flash bulb. I saw 300V across the capacitor leads, and the same 300Volts across the flash bulb leads. SO I am assuming that there is a transistor or relay that drops to ground to fire the flash that isn't working, or the electronic signal to drive that isn't working.

It seems most people replace the entire flash circuit board(which is near the capacitor under the left hand side). But it seems Nikon only sells parts to it certified repair facilities.

Ugh.... Looks like I'm buying a SB-600, as this is the cheepest solution. Too bad, because the on-board flash is more than decent. I hope the SB-600 thrills me enough to change my mood. :)
