Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

2 Answers

Pictures come out all grey with white lines across the screen

I've had my camera for a couple of years and has always worked perfectly. Today however I tried taking a picture and although the image looked great on the digital screen as soon as I pressed the button the picture came out all grey with white lines across the screen. I've tried changing the mode and replacing the batteries but no joy - any help/advice would be much appreciated...especially as we're off on holiday in 3days!! Many thanks, Oliver

If you don't want a camera with interchangeable lenses, you should buy a bridge camera. Almost all brands have camera's like this. Although the sensor is somewhat smaller they still can make great pictures. Only when using these cameras in low light, it can give some lesser pictures. Now you can buy bridge camera's with more than 30 times zoom, for only a few hundred dollar.
On Amazon a coolpix 34 times zoom, 16 Mega pix, under $250 today. But all brands have camera's like this.

Try putting the memory card in a USB card reader attached to your computer, which should see it as another drive. Write-protect the card first.

I've had the Samsung L200 with the same Panasonic 1GB memory card for the last 3 years and it's been great, but all of a sudden today it started saying 'memory full' after only taking a few...


The camera is telling you that the internal memory is full. To get your card to work, you must clear it. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, your card should work unless you formatted it in the computer, in which case you'll have to format (completely erases it) it in the camera.

Camera was working perfectly and now the pictures are all blurry and the flash wont work. please HELP!!!


This may sound crazy. We have a coolpix (different model) that took awful pictures from the beginning. Sent it back to nikkon repair center and they said they had to order a new lens...after we got it back (about six weeks) there was no difference. I started looking through all the pictures we had taken before and after and it dawned on me that the distortion was always in the same area of the pictures. Center outward toward the lower left and the exposure was always too long washing out the total image. I took a real close look at the lens front and sure enough found a tiny spot near the center. I tried to wash it off with water,then mild soap with no luck. Feeling like I had nothing to lose I resorted to goof-off and the spot softened and came off. The camera now works great! I hope something like this has happened to you and this helps.

I have a powershot S230 about 6 year old it has worked perfectly until today. I tried to take a photo but ther was no image in the camera screen and I was unable to take a photo. Is it worth repairing or...


Base from the description of your problem its clear that the issue here is with the LCD screen of the camera that is bad already and since this is already a 6 year old camera having it repair will worth the price of getting a new camera now, so I strongly suggest you just go get a new one.

Maybe the shutter got wet and sticky. You can try look into the lens then press shutter button to take picture. If you don’t see the movement inside the hole, the shutter doesn’t open, it will take black picture.

If you can play back images ok ( colour & resolution normal ) but in capture mode you have no image then the CCD sensor in your camera is faulty. Replace.
