Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera ?

Canon Ixus 4 broke real bad...

\015 Hello there,\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012I guess the most logical thing would be buying a new one. But, let's suppose I want to repair it myself and save some money.\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Two main problems:\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012I was walking along a river and I slipped on the rocks and the camera\015\012slashed and fell into the water. I quickly removed it and let it dry.\015\012But it is now showing no sign of life. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012The screen is cracked.\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012I live in Brazil, I asked a quote to the qualified Canon Assistance shop and the gave a price of aproximally $ 500.\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012If I did it myself, buying the parts, will I really save some money?\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance\015

Answers :

If the battery was in there, it probably shorted something out.
\015\012if the fuses saved the power board, you can replace the LCD easily, just get the old one out and look at the manufacturer (Sony or maybe Sharp) and get one on Ebay. Open the camera and if it was fresh water, just dry it out with a hair drier on low heat, or dunk it in 80% alcohol and let it dry. Getting the lens clean might involve removing the lens and getting in there with lens tissue. Most PC boards are alcohol proof as they are cleaned in the manufacturing process in the same manner. Youll have to find the microfuse that blew and either short/bridge it with solder or replace it. If you bought it with a credit card, sometimes they double the warranty length or offer repair service. $500 US sounds high, but Im not familiar with your camera.

Hi. Very unhappy with quality of Ixus 80is photos. They are not at all sharp, milky, with no depth, in various light conditions. I did comparison identical rural scenic photos with the canon and 2 different 5 megapixel phone cameras. In most cases, the Nokia N95 camera results are far superior to the canon. I have read nothing but good reviews about the quality of pics from this camera so I'm wondering why mine are so bad. Any ideas?

When I compare outdoor images taken with my old Canon Digital Ixus 400 and my Canon EOS10D, I find that the blue response of the 10D is very poor - what shows up as a nice blue sky with the Ixus gives a dull grey/blue with the 10D, using both cameras in fully automatic mode. Any suggestions?


Try manually setting the ISO speed to 100. Sometimes on Auto ISO the camera chooses a high speed that reduces colors. Or you can try adjusting the exposure with the EV button - set to a lower setting like -1 or -1 1/2. ... Canon Digital Cameras
