Question about Canon PowerShot S230 / IXUS 179 Digital Camera
Suddenly my flawless camera will not take pictures. I can snap a pictures and have the flash go off, but Display will not show picture or the CP flash card. The lens will open correctly and zooms. The Display works as well because all the option are available,flash, zoom, ect. I change battery and CF card, no help.
What other things can I try? Is there a reboot or reinstall default options?
This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
