Question about Canon PowerShot Pro1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

None of the buttons work

Yesterday I noticed that none of the buttons were working on my camera. I can still zoom and take pictures, but I cannot delete any of them nor can I flip through them. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!! I have the same problem. I was able to take pictures and view them/delete them on Thursday night. Friday morning NONE of my buttons are working. I'm still able to take pictures but cannot use the Menu, FUNC. SET etc buttons.

The control panel circuit board may need to be changed, or there is a bad ribbon cable between it and the main processor board. It is also possible that the processor is at fault.

You should give the camera to Canon to have an estimate. You cannot fix this yourself. It involves changing parts and re-calibraiton.

Did you ever get the camera wet? Water damge can cuase this type of problem in a camera.

The none of the buttons on the back work.The camera shoots pictures, but no zoom, editing or programming because the buttons do not provide any changes to the camera.


The ribbon strip that connects the keypad to the board has failed.
This strip has 2 folds made in it when the camera was built. These folds stress the ribbon and eventually break.
Replacement ribbon is the only real solution

None of the buttons work


You could see if any buttons are jammed and take the batteries out by moving them. See if one of them is jammed.

If that doesn't work, I would take into a shop and have them inspect it.

FX8 all button frozen


I am not sure if this is a solution. but one time, i turned on my camera when the battery is really drained. usually (when it was broken) it will automatically zoom in. but that certain period when i turned it on, even before it can zoom in, the battery drained and the camera went off. i charged the battery and when i put it back and turned on the camera, it works fine. it is still working fine. good thing i didnt had the repair center fix it, because they charge really high price.

Pentax s5z doesn't take any more pictures


Here's another method to fix this problem.
Push the ON Button for some while and you will go to MEMO recording screen, in this mode the MENU button works and you can RESET the camera.
