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.

CAPLIO RR770 HAVE YOU ANYBODY SERVICE MANUAL FOR CAPLIO?


Try ifixit.com, to see if they did repair your camera. They have videos and manuals about lots of camera's for free. They also can supply tools and spare parts not for free. I have to warn you, most of the time the spare parts are more expensive then a new camera. And when repaired, it still is an old camera, with possible oxidising parts, that can stop working in a few months time.

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.
Regards.

Lens jams can happen without dropping the camera. The lens motor is bad, or a grain of sand has got stuck in one of the lens cogs. Either way will need lens repair/replacement.

My flash has stopped working


Hi

Unfortunately you will either need to replace the flash unit... or if you're unlucky the main PCB. I don't think you will be able to do anything without either of those parts.

I have made my living running a digital camera repair business for several years now, wish I had better news for you about your camera. If we can help with the repair let us know.

Good luck: Darntoothysam com

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.

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. :)
