Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera ?

Canon S5 died.

\015 Was working fine but went black and lens wont retract. Batteries are okay. Less than year old. Great camera until this.\015

Answers :

If it was less than a year old, I hope you sent it to Canon for repair.
\015\012If not, then you have to have your camera professional serviced to repair it.
\015\012It may be an internal switch, the DC/DC converter board, or a defect in the main board.
