Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

2 Answers

Black screen Yesterday I grabbed my camara for a not to be missed shot and found that I too have the same problem now of the black image through the view finder and on the lcd screen. I have replaced the batteries, tried changing settings and nothing works. I too can see the icons and view previously taken pictures but can take no new ones. I feel that paying $350 for a disposable camara is a bit much! I purchased it just a little over a year ago. I saw on the Canon website that they are fixing other models that have the same problem but the S3 IS is not listed. I do believe that they have a big complaint coming!

I just called Canon they said it's an internal component that has burned out and would have to be sent in to be fixed! I let them have it. I am just over my 1 year warranty and now have to pay to get my $300 plus camera fixed!

Samsungs850 no pic in view finder


This is new. I see that according to the illustration, there is no Optical Viewfinder- thus you need the the screen to compose the images - Is this correct? As this camera is new to you carefully read up the instruction manual - especially the set up routine. If after a day or so you are still in trouble - take it back to the store for replacement. Do not interfere with the camera.
