Having problems with your Canon PowerShot Pro1 Digital Camera ?

Powershot Pro 1 shutter problem

\015 Hi,I have a Canon Pro1. It has taken about 18,000 pictures, and suddenly turned off. I took the camera to authorized Canon service here in Ankara-Turkey. I have been told that it was due to a shutter problem. Their suggested solution was to change the lens, which cost about 250 euro something. I refused their suggestion, and told them that I will take my camera back.One day later they have informed me that they did a modification in the camera and now it works in between 28-50 mm zoom range, so I cant zoom the lens beyond 50 mm. After receiving my camera in this condition I have shifted to a third party repair shop, where I have learned that the main problem was with flexible cables of shutter system, and after the modification of Canon service now the only repair option is really lens replacement.When I asked Canon; why they did a modification on my camera without my consent, they have replied like "We did a favor for you, we even did not charge money for this modification, you are free to pass your complaints to anywhere you want"1- After so called "modification" camera starts to function at lower zoom range.Hence: shutter mechanism is not totally defective. Problem prevents higher zooms.2- Third party repair shop claims that, original problem was with flexible cable which connect shutter unit to camera body. Hence It could be repaired without changing the whole lens. And actually, Canon supplies these parts separately for repairs as well.3- After I reject service offers, they did a modification in the lens and now shutter works in low zoom range but not higher zoom ranges.Now my questions are; 1- Does whole lens needed to be replaced?2- Pro 1 has high quality lenses, would you tie their life to a flexible cable so once your cheap cable dies you also trove expensive lens with them?3- If this is Canon policy of production we should now it before we buy from them.4- Do they have right to make such modification, and give me a partially working camera which locks itself with a LENS error when you shift zoom higher than 50 mm.5- Does the authorized Canon services has right to make modifications on cameras without owners consent?with my kind regards,Akif Muhtar \015

\015\012Personaly, If I like the camera, and I cannot find something that good for 250 EU, I would fix it.

\015\012Apparantly, the PRO-1 is one of the best small digital cameras that Canon ever made. I personaly own one. I have not taken too many pictures with it. But, when I use it, for the size its performance is impressive.

Won't Focus I have had my Canon Powershot SD1000 for about 9 months now. I have had problems with the lens error and it getting stuck but have always been able to get it to work eventually. I had another bout with the lens getting stuck, was able to get it unstuck but now it won't focus at all. Normally I press the shutter down half way to get it to focus on my subject, but now it simply won't focus. I'm wondering if maybe my settings are off, or if it's an internal problem. Any suggestions

This is a recently purchased camera that was working beautifully until recently. It just stopped taking pictures; when the shutter release is pressed, nothing happens. The only clue I have to what is happening came when I pressed the Quick View button and got a No Card message. I changed the CF card to one I took from my Canon Rebel XT and that I knew was working fine - again the message No Card when the QV button was pressed. Does that help at all in defining the problem? Any ideas what the pro

Recently, my Canon Powershot A95 has had an intermittent LCD display problem. While beginning to frame and focus a shot, the image streaks from edge to edge of the screen. If the shutter is snapped, that is the image recorded. The image looks like the subject is rapidly moving, or as though it is a time-lapse photo. Could this be a CCD (chip)issue?


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free worldwide, and may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. ... Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera
