Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera ?

Canon s5 is battery cover will not open - Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera

Answers :

Unfortunately there is only two solutions for your problem:
\015\0121. Gently but firm, press the battery cover lid down and at the same timemove the button to open it, and at the same time, slide to the side the battery cover.
\015\012Try it as much as times are needed.
\015\0122. If still is stuck, then you will need to disassembly it, or pay at a repair service for it.
\015\012If is stuck, and force to open it with a tool (pry tool or similar), you have the risk of break the slide plastic channels in the camera body, or break the battery cover, or break a switch located in the mainboard that senses when the camera door is closed, or everything at the same time, making worst the problem and causing you to spend more on repairing it.
\015\012Of course that if it has warranty, I do recommend you to make it valid prior to try in send it to repair.
\015\012If is out of warranty, Canon charges $120.00 for any repair (or so), so you will need to find a cheaper repair shop for it.

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!

Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

Okay I doubt this can be fixed. I accidentally slammed my camera (canon powershot SD1000 Digital Camera) in the car door. It was in my jacket pocket my jacket was tied around my waist and I was climbing into a 68 camaro convertible. There is a dent on the lens side near where you open the battery & memory card compartment. The camera will not turn on and the memory card won't be read in any drive I try it in. I had awesome pix of Mt. Rushmore. :-( Any thoughts?

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.

If this is a new camera, you should be running back to the store to return it. ... Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera
