I am suddenly having problems with my S100. It will not take the picture when I press the shutter release. In case I had accidentally changed something, I did a Reset to Defaults. Then it worked, briefly, before returning to not working. It also would not let me change My Colors. Everything else seems to be working fine. Any ideas?
Hello Everyone. Just another Canon S100 user here with the same Shuttler Delay problem. Sometimes it takes 2 to 5 seconds to fire and sometimes it just doesn't fire at all. I'll be calling Canon's Support and see what they are willing to do. If they start to claim they are unaware of this issue or tell me they're going to charge me then I'll just do as others have suggested here and go to the BBB. I don't have a lot of time to waste around with poor support. This issue has been plauging users since at least 2013 and I guarantee that most people don't have the patience to post here or try the cannon support and just throw the camera away and get a new one. I can only imagine how many people we don't know about that are/were affected by this issue. Time for cannon to issue a recall on the shutter delay problem. I might understand if this was one of their cheaper throw away cameras but this is supposed to be a premium camera with a premium price! Makes me very reluctant to get another canon, especially with all the choices we have these days. I will say this though. If Canon does the right thing then I will be the first to come back and post and give the cudos for taking care of the issue. I'm happy to give credit where credit is due. We'll see.
By the way my Serial Number is 442032003451
Angela I gave it my best guess, by blowing hard into those ports it pops the flexible circuit board back into place so that the shutter button can activate the release switch again.
Then theres a humidity guess, introducing the humidity from your breath does something.
