Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera ?

The cover of the battery compartment does not lock closed properly due to the fact that the front recess for the locking tab has snapped off, is it possible to replace the battery cover on this camera, the camera works well, but when you load batteries in and shut the cover it does not keep the pressure on the batteries causing the camera to shut down.


Answers :

Hi Dear,

As described by you. Some part is snapped off. Is this part is a part of camera body or is it from the flap that opens and closes which holds the batteries.

If it is the flap, then it is possible to get it replaced. But if it is from the body, then also it is possible to get replaced the body, but in this case it will be an expensive business.

Please let us know if this suggestion was helpful in any respect.

We would love to serve you further if you require more information on it.

Have a nice day.

I have a canon SD1100 I just purchased and after a few minutes the camera will not shut off, the power button won't work and I have to open the battery cover to turn it off. Somehow this completely drains the battery too every time even if it was just charged. Also the camera turns itself on by itself about 10 minutes after you put the battery in it and once again you can't turn it off. I got another battery and the same thing happens. Otherwise it works fine.

Dropped camera Though my camera was in a well-padded case, the contact with the cement in the metro-station was too much. Should I bother paying $211 for a Sony authorized dealer to even look at it, or should I apply the $211 to a new camera? The camera turns on but no longer takes pictures and won't shut off unless I remove the battery. My thanks in advance.

Olympus FE-280 I can no longer take photos with my camera! When I turn it on it makes some weird noises as the zoom lens adjusts, and then the viewer screen is blurry when it comes on.

When I turn the camera on, the lens extends, makes a few noises like it is trying to retract the lens. The viewer shows nothing - like the lens cover is on. When I push the power button to shut it off, it makes the noises again and shuts off but does not retract the lens. The battery is fully charged.

My FE-360 keeps shutting down with the lens stuck out. When you try and turn it on you can hear the lens trying to retract but it stays stuck out and the camera makes a bleeping sound.

Fuji s9000 problem, it won't turn on with the ac supply at all.

Well, after a while I came back to my photo booth and my camera had a white screen (lcd) and so I unplugged it at that time thinking maybe it was charging the batteries or something.
