Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera ?
My S5 stopped to work!
\015 Hello everybody,\015\012\015\012A friend of mine went to US and I bougth a S5 for me. Now, the camera is here with me in Brazil.\015\012I "played" with it for a week. Everything worked fine (I shot 389\015\012photos and made some videos with it), until the day that the\015\012rechargeable batteries ran out of charge.\015\012The lens didn't retracted, and I started to be afraid.\015\012So, I recharged the batteries. Tried to turn on, and after about 5\015\012attempts (turning on, nothing. Pulling out the batteries, putting it\015\012again, turning on, nothing), it started to work again!\015\012So, I connected it on my notebook's USB. The PC recognized it, and when I would start to copy the photos, the camera shut off.\015\012I tried to turn it on, the green led lighted, but just turned off. I\015\012could smell something burnt on the battery case, but it can be\015\012something of my mind, because today I can't smell it anymore. Since\015\012this day, the S5 never worked again.\015\012\015\012The things I already tried:\015\012\015\0121 - Take the CR1220 off and the batteries, wait for a long time and try again\015\0122 - Recharge the batteries\015\0123 - Try non-rechargeable alcaline batteries (DURACELL)\015\012\015\012Can anyone help me? I can't send it to the technical assistance, because it came from the US and I am here in Brazil.\015
This is a safety issue since you smelled something burnt. I realize that you are out of the country, but if you have anyone in the US who can take care of this for you, have them call Canon and the call will be escalated to customer relations. They take safety issues very seriously. I'm not sure what the outcome will be, but I would try to have someone in the US help me out with that.

I have a Fujifilm Finepix F50SE camera that stopped working sometime ago. I charged it but it still would not work so I thought the battery might be bad and bought a new one. The camera worked for a very short while, then stopped. I bought another battery, but it would not work. I then thought the charger was bad, but it did charge for a good while. The camera's zoom is out and will not retract and the camera will not turn on. I don't have a camera repair shop anywhere near me, especially

My Camera will not turn on I have a Canon PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph. About 2 weeks ago, it stopped working and just randomly would not turn on. The strange part is, I had just used it about an hour before it stopped working and it seemed to be just fine. I didn't drop it or damage it in any way, so I don't understand why it just stopped turning on just out of the blue.

Sloooooowww speed I LOVED my 20D the first two years I had it. Then last spring it started slowing down - I was no longer able to fire off shots like before in multi-shot mode. Then one day it wouldn't stop clicking off shots. I turned it off, took the battery out and let it sit for a bit. Then it stopped working altogether and I got an error 99. It went into the shop and Ritz Camera said they fixed it - but they didn't. It worked one hour and did the same thing. I loaded a firmware update on it

HI, my Canon XH A1 stopped suddenly working. The odd thing is that it works in VCR mode but not as a camera, I forgot to turn it off today and then transported it, in it's safe bag, when I took it out (it was outside in this temperature) it wasn't working any longer. I thought it was the battery, but I recharged the batttery at home and it's still not working. What could it be?
