Question about Canon PowerShot S60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nothing apparently wrong; acts like battery's dead

Hi,  The only thing I can think of is that I had it in my purse w/o a camera bag. There's no problem opening the door, and no apparent physical damage. But it doesn't turn on, the lens doesn't react when the door opens, and the view mode button doesn't turn on the screen. The battery's fully charged. Any guesses?
Thanks much, Deborah

Fake. They all are with numbers like that, and you don't even have to tell me you bought a Coach :>) They are all made in China.

    Cracked screen


    The warranty covers manufacturing defects and such, camera stops working completely etc, cracked screen is not one of those things.

    You must have dropped your purse or something must have pressed on the screen and caused it to crack.

    I think they will charge you for a new screen.

    Cleaning my fossil leather purse

    Actually you are in a wrong place - this is where we fix watch and clock related problems.
    But there is one advise I can give you:
    All good/respectable shoe shops sell special cleaning fluids for many different types of leather. Do not mind these are shoe shops, as shoes, bags, purses, belts and so on are made of same source- leather.
    So, take your purse with you and visit one of these shops. They will give you advice what's best for your particular purse. You can buy special spray as well - it will help to keep all dirt and grime at bay in future.

    Rate me, please.

    Olympus Digital FE-170 LCD screen is shattered.

    You may be able to buy a new screen for your camera and fit it yourself.
    It takes a bit of know how but can be done if you take your time.
    Check the internet to see if a replacement screen can be bought for your camera.
    Check the price if you think it's not worth the hassle
    buy a new camera and get a bigger purse - better still buy a camera bag.

    S2 suddenly draining batteries rapidly

    I have the same exact problem. I just now read a possible solution: try opening the battery compartment door and then closing it again to "trick" the camera into thinking it just got new batteries. There is definitely something wrong with the way the camera senses dead batteries.

    Brazil: No Sanyo technical assistance for digital cameras; what should I do?

    Even in a Sanyo area where they do market cameras - I doubt if anything could be done- these things are made all of a piece - if its broke it stays broke. However -I am guessing here - I imagine Brazil has a high humidity climate. And high humidity is a killerr for this type of goods. Try the following. Take out batteries and with the eraser on the end of a pencil gently rub the battery contact at the base of the battery compartment. Do the same with the contact in the compartment lid. Take the card out and do the same with those contacts - very very gently. Now put the camera and the batteries[but loose not in the camera] and the card in a poly bag With some of those little bags of silica gel that things like cameras come in. or a small cloth bag filled with dry rice grains- suck the air out of the bag -bind it up tight and leave somewhere warm but dry for a couple of days. Then when you consider it has dried out - put it together and see if it will work. Come back let me know what happens
