I'm not sure what that error message is but it's definitely some type of an error code the camera is giving you. It sounds like it probably needs to be serviced. An excellent place where you can have it fixed is www.camerasandparts.com They just work on the Canons and they are not expensive at all for service. They do excellent work on these models. I hope that helps you with it, best of luck with the problem.

Have you tried a different mem card and seeing if you still get the error. I think error 24 may be an electrical problem though

Photo date stamp for Canon PowerShot S3 IS


The camera will not deface your photos by scrawling a string of digits across them. However the date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

It sounds like it needs to be serviced. If you're out of warranty, then go to this site: www.camerasandparts.com They just service the Canon Powershots exclusively and they are not much at all. The best part, they do outstanding work and they are much less than Canon. Hopefully that helps you with it, that's where a lot of people go for help with these Canon Powershots if the warranty is already up on the camera.

Canon powershot s3 is digtal


This is a menu setting, in capture mode it is the slow synchro option I think. What it does is try to get the subject to have a lit background. Turn this off and you get a subject lit with flash and no background but no blurriness either.

Canon S3 IS: no picture on display


Call Canon for free tech support and I'd advise sending it in for free estimate. If your camera is more than a year old, you will qualify for the upgrade program which is often cheaper than repairing it.

Hope this helps!
