So .. I thought I'd give this a try (nothing to lose eh?) and went to retrieve my S100 from the basement. After taking about 100 pictures the error just isn't there anymore. I wonder if it's the humidity that's actually fixing the problem, as it's quite humid in my basement and the camera has been down there for a few months.

I think the flexible printed cicuit board that holds the switch buckled perhaps and by blowing into it it has buckled back up again where it's suppose to be. Kind of snapped it back in to place.
Of course anything is possible and if it was hunidity related it will act up again, but I still think it is what I said above or some form of that.
If all you have to do to fix it is blow it and save repair costs then what harm is a blow job fix between camera and owner! lol
What happens in the camera bag stays in the camera bag !! lol

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.

My S100 stopped working again. But after a quick puff, it's now operational again. I guess this is one of those "one weird tricks" the interwebs is always talking about
