Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera ?

Canon S1IS image is blurry "vertically" and has fine lines horizontally. i used my camera 3 days ago with no problem. it has NOT been exposed to moisture. i DID leave it in my car over the weekend, but it was parked in the shade and the outside temp never got over 85. HELP


Answers :

I am sorry to inform you that your camera is showing clear signs of CCD sensor failure ( it's sensor is still working but the problem with 'noisy' image will get worse see the enclosed pic of CCD sensor from a canon camera ). \015\012The good news is that Canon is repairing these models free of charge and treat it as 'factory fault' , replacing the CCD block with a new one.

No pictures I have a Moultrie DGS-200 camera (about two years now) and have used it only twice. The first time I got no pictures although it said there were 5. The second time was last weekend where it said 12 pictures yet there were none. When I first set it up at home it would trip from 20-25 feet away. Now I can wave my hand in front of it and it may or may not trip. What am I doing wrong.


Are you using a SD card or using the internal memory? The trigger mechanism on these cameras are not the best. They are slow and sometimes wouldn't go off with an elaphant standing in front of it and other times it trips from the wind, shadow, or a ... Moultrie MFH-DGS-200 Digital Camera

Error 99 This is the second day with the camera and i got a Error 99, i read up on some websites that said to take out battery for a few mins and that resets the error, well it worked. Before I reset it I did take off the lens and put it back on. Now the error seems to be gone. I took the camera out with me to work and it was quite cold in the car so i am hoping that it was the moisture/dew that caused this error. Anyone else have any input on this?

Camera locked Hi, I've got the blinking battery symbol when I switch on my K100D. I've tried switching to manual focus and leaving for a while with the batteries out, but still the same issue. It works ok with external power supply, so I uploaded ver 1.02 firmware to see if that would solve the issue but still the same fault. Is there anything else you can suggest I try? Thanks, Brian


Put in new batteries. If you're using rechargeable batteries, they already have a lower voltage than regular batteries. If you don't have enough milliamps in the battery, it will show as low, no matter what the voltage is. ... Pentax K100D Digital Camera

Pink pictures the other day.... I was using my camera and it started showing lines through the image, the image quality was getting worse and worse.  I figured needs new batteries.  So I put new batteries in it and now it takes pink pictures!  How strange my evergreen pictures look in fushia color!   I tried and tried for a couple of weeks, I checked all the settings, even took the batteries out and restarted, but still pink!  all shades of pink!  Here's where it really gets odd, I got my camera

I was taking photos over the weekend with my Olympus E-500 and the eyepiece viewfinder got darker than usual. I was using a promaster 5750DX flash. Even without the flash, the eyepiece viewfinder has remained dark. Also, I reset all settings to the default settings and now when the built in flash pops up, there are a series of three "beeps" and the camera tries to focus. I cannot get it to take a photo however. I also pushed the button for the sensor cleaning today. Could this have screwed u
