Re: shutter release not working S100

I did a quick look at all the Powershot forums posts and this topic looks like the second or third most viewed problem topic in the Powershot forum. The only higher ones with dif model cameras were a battery drain thread and maybe a wifi connection problem thread ?

Re: shutter release not working S100

voodoo I'm happy for you, but now I guess I have to file that BBB complaint.

 

If you cannot provide the entire address per guidelines, could you provide the State and entire name that you used? There seems to be a lot of "Canon" businesses out there.

 

Thank you.

Re: shutter release not working S100

Canon S100 camera
I too am having an ongoing issue with my S100 ( a 46... Series) Since just after the warranty period, pressing the shutter release button will result in a focus, but then no further click to record the image. As I had just paid 500 for the camera, and the fee for checking was very expensive, I decided to look online for possible issues. Well, there was no shortage!
My best to date solutions:
1. the low tech dry bag solution.
I carry my camera in a ziplock with several small desiccant packs, as the issue seems to be related to high humidity. Not very professional looking, but it works, although today it was for only one shot, then the issue recurred. I can only relate symptoms, as I am no technician, just a frustrated consumer.
Solution 2:
My husband has a similar Fujica, so we share it when on vacation in humid climates, or during much of the summer in the area where we live. Not recommended for marital bliss!

My previous Elph worked for years and many thousands of fabulous shots. Canon says they have no recorded issues with the shutter release in the S100 46... Series. Anyone else have this issue (whatever it is) in this series?

I was to told by customer service this morning (in Canada) to do what I had to do, so it's off to the BBB site!

Re: shutter release not working S100

I sent my camera to Canon repair in Vriginia and just received a repair bill of $170 to fix the shutter problem. What a joke!

Our two year old S100's shutter button started acting up about 6 months ago and now it will not take a picture. It will still focus when the button is pressed halfway.

Re: shutter release not working S100

What series (number on bottom of camera) is yours? Canon claims that only certain S100 series have this issue you describe. I believe the issue is more widespread.
