Question about Canon PowerShot S30 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Slider Prob I've had my S30 for quite a while and lately i've had some problem with the slider opening up. Dont know if something got in between the slider and the cam or something. Anyway with some trouble i could still open up the slider and thus start up my cam but then one day when i was trying to close my cam i started to slide it to close. Finally it closed and i slided the slider onto the lens but then the lens started to open up again. But the slider was in the way so the lens opened up half way and then the camera beeped 3 times and the lens stopped. Now i can't get my camera to open or close because it is like halfway atm. I dont know what to do. Is there some kind of manual power button?

Dang, what a weird design. The lens needs to go threw a cycle before it can reach the idle position where it waits for a comand from the user. If its in the closed position and you turn it on it extends to its full range then stops at the idle position. It sounds like it is stuck in some spot between close and idle. Since it cant reach the closed position or idle its shutting down. The only way to get it to work is to try and free the lens so it can cycle threw. There must be a lip on the slider and the lens is stuck on this lip so you cant slide it. Remove the batteries then try and slide the door open try and slide somthing between the lens and the door to free it up. This is the only way to get it threw the cycle. It may need to be serviced It sounds like the switch for the slider door is warn or has broken. It may work again if you can free the lens.

Front shock oil running all over


Unless you've had your front fork assembly serviced recently, I'd guess you've got blown oil seals in the top of the sliders on your forks. If someone serviced your forks lately, they may have put in too much oil and blown the seals. You'll have to drain the forks, disassemble the fork tube from the lower slider and replace the seal in each leaking tube. Refill the fork tube with the designated about of oil for a "dry" refill. Use this figure because the fork tube was disassembled. When you simply drain the forks without a disassembly, you cannot get all the oil out and the refill quantity is less.

Good Luck

My phone will not ring, it is not on any silent modes


If something isn't working right, restarting, force quitting an application, or resetting
iPhone will likely solve the problem.
Restart iPhone: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.
Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPhone. To turn iPhone back on, press and
hold the Sleep/Wake until the Apple logo appears.
If you can't turn off iPhone or if the problem continues, you may need to reset. A reset
should be done only if turning iPhone off and on doesn't resolve the problem.
Force quit an application: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone
for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then press and hold the Home button
until the application quits.
Reset iPhone: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the
same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

J700 camera could not start if Slider already opened error comes "Open Slider"


Hi,

There is an switch provided near the slider so that when you open it it activates and you can use the camera function.
When you open the slider if it doesnt activates the switch then you cannot use your camera.And it shows as 'open slider'

Please take your mobile phone to service centre they will fix this problem.
Its a very small problem

Thanx

Switch on the wireless device first?


PLease locate the slider switch at the edge of your laptop. there should be a small slider switch for your wireless. Try to look at the sides or at the front of your keyboard.

I cannot close the slider of my celphone sony ericson w580i?


if its slid open n wont go back something isnt on the track properly. try to push it down but do not force it as that is classed as physical damage. u may be able to return it under warranty but be careful u dont damage it first. otherwise take it to a cheap asian repair shop- (nopt racist, they usually r the cheapest) and get it fixed mate.

Ok not turning on is kind of vauge.  This is what I would recomend trying.  First off pull the battery and put it back in it should automatically boot in about 5 seconds.  If this does not work use the power button slider on the side of the phone.  If that does not work use your stylus in the reset button found on the bottom of the phone on the left hand side this should restart the phone after you remove the stylus.  If that dosent work you can do the master reset and try that.  If that dosent work I would say that you are out of luck with your phone.
