This is a known "Service Notice" issue announced by Canon.
\015\012
\015\012You'll notice thousands of consumers reporting the exact same problem including myself.
\015\012It takes too long to power on the camera, then when it does, it won't take any pictures then after 10 sec or so, "'Memory Card Error" displays. Hitting menu button does not work nor Preview/Playback mode (green light flashes). Camera powers off in 2 min.

\015\012Here's THE Solution from Canon - the phone customer rep was super helpful and issued a free UPS return shipping label along with instructions for free repair:

\015\012Since this is a known issue, if it indeed is this issue, Canon will repair it regardless of warranty validity. It takes 2 - 2.5 weeks from shipping out your camera to get it back repaired. Hope this resolves your issue as well!

Pictures missing some (not all) of pictures taken end up missing from the camera ; they can't be viewed on the camera or loaded into my pc. I know the pics were there but missing later. this has happened with two separate memory cards so I know it's not a card problem. I've had the camersa a few years and this is the first problem. One of the memory cards intermittantly comes up with a "memory card error" message but not the card that was exclusively in use when the problem first showed itself.


If you haven't done so yet, take one of the cards, reformat it correctly (please ask again if you need info on how to do this) and see if you get any change.\015\012\015\012Are you using a PC card reader to transfer the photos or a USB cable?\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

File error very so often after clicking a few photographs the camera shows FILE ERROR . On the first review the camera displays the photograph there after the photos are lost. the only solution to the problem is to format the memory card after which it clicks a few photographs & then the same problem occurs. is it the problem of memory card or a problem with the camera


It could be either. There is not any way to tell, but if the problem is too bad I would replace the memory card first and then address the issue within the camera if it continues.\015\012\015\012David Millier\015\012Advance Camera Repair ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 Digital Camera
