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?
I have not posted in awhile and I did not read the continued postings on this thread, but I thought I would update my status.
In December 2014 I took my camera apart and I did use the DeOxit on the shutter release button internally. The camera really has worked well up until last weekend. Unfortunately I now get the lens error message and the camera will not work. I called Canon and my camera's serial number is not part of the lens recall. I have given up and I will not try to fix the camera at this point. I was happy with the camera except having these two major issues.
I bought my wife a DSLR yesterday to replace this camera. A size difference I know but it will not have the lens error potential. It will be nice to have a good camera to take some good quality photos. I always have my iphone with me for the times I dont plan on taking photos anyway. For me this was the right decision, but unfortunately for the readers of this thread it may not be what they wanted to hear.
Good luck everyone... up yours Canon!
If you do a search on an auction site like ebay for Canon S100 lens assembly youll find it I dont have any part numbers for that, I didnt take notice of them..if you call Canon they might provide it for you
Hi, I'm having the same problem. Very frustrating! I lose important shots! I've been very happy with the S100 until now. Time for a new camera? If it costs $160 just to have the camera looked at, plus the time I'll be without it, it may make more sense to shop for a replacement.
