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'm glad you asked, got me to dig out the last service detail. It says they replaced Optical Ass'y, Blk CY1-9182-000.
This isn't what you guys replaced for this fix is it? Probably wasn't used a week before getting the same symptoms.
Yes, its the "shutter won't release problem" and everything else works. Never had focus problems as far as I know. I don't have my earlier records.
I just checked it, its not hunting for focus or doing much of anything. Last night I put it on Tv, with the flash on, and it worked fairly well. Now it wont work at all on Tv. Put it on Auto and got it to work intermittently.
I just changed it back to Tv and Av and it works.
Thanks, thats my intentions, ordering the part today. The S100 is a great little camera, just wish it had more file size options.
I don't won't to wait on them to repair it, besides, they already said they wouldn't repair it free. So I know it would take some hard negotiations to get them to pay. I used my Nikon history and first Canon purchase to get them to deal with me on the other repairs, don't think I could get one more out of them. I know Canons are usually reliable, but it does bother me that they won't take care of purchasers of the S100. Its otherwise a great little camera. I went with Nikon DSLR's because I already had some Nikon telephoto lenses, and didn't want the expense of starting over. Otherwise, I really didn't have any preferences over brand. I forgot that I did have a Rebel 35mm about 15 years ago, had no problems with it.
I did order the part CM1-7226-000. Tried to replace per direction, but it is death. I don't know if I slice in the connector incorrectly or not. Anyone has an idea. I should bring it to Canon for them to see.
