Get the CHDK plug-in for the S3; it will then show you battery life as a percent. Note - you'll need access to an SD card reader to install it.

Why are the photos on my Canon Power Shot S3IS not

When my cameras start having a mind of their own there are three basic things I check:
1. How old is the battery? Or has the camera been sitting around for a while? Chances are your battery doesn't have the gusto in it anymore if you answered yes or maybe to one of these. And then the camera stars acting up.
2. Once you've started "researching and resetting" all the possible settings it is good to reset all settings to default settings. Your manual will guide you for this.
3. Last but not least, where you out in humid weather? lake? sea? ocean? boat? handled the camera after coming out of the pool with wet hands?
anything that would have allowed all that to seep into your camera?

Hello, I'm sorry that this is a dopey question. How do I know when the batteries in my Canon Powershot S3IS need to be charged? Which icon indicates battery life? Thank you very much.

You will see there a rectangular icon that looks like a battery there and when that rectangular icon is almost empty it means that you need to charge it already.

Camera wont turn on. Says lens error and restar camera

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that will require professional repair. If it has not been dropped, your problem is likely due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the camera may require professional repair.

Lens error

If you've recently dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. Either one of those problems will require professional repair. If it hasn't suffered from a drop, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may be to weak/worn to properly power the camera, or the camera may require professional repair.

Canon S3IS freezes when connected to the computer

1)You need to unplug the camera, turn it off. Then plug it back in, turn it on, and wait. If nothing comes up, go to "My Computer" and you should see the camera icon there. Double Click it and there you are.

2)Take your camera to a friends computer, plug it in if it works, problem is your computer.

Sony dsc-p92, the batteries don't last very long

if you work on zoom. / flash & preview too often, they will eat into your battery life much more than just regular use. Also, if the batteries are old (more than 1 year) - high chances that they are at the end of their life span by now.

Hi there, I have a Canon Powershot S3IS and just lately when you try to turn it on it comes up with a message that says E24. I have looked through the manual and cannot find anything resembling this...

You have 2 choices here, one is send the camera into Canon for exchange or replace the Camera, this would be based on cost. You can't fix it as no parts are available from the manufacturer to the public.
