Re: shutter release not working S100

[ Edited ]

I'm an at-home mom with no electronics repair experience. My s100 died with the shutter release failure during my recent vacation to Hawaii (directly after a tour of a rainforest = humidity). As all other folks here have felt, I was so upset and really rather brokenhearted over my defunct camera. I love this camera! I searched the internet, found this discussion, followed the instructions mentioned in this conversation. I ordered the screwdriver and Deoxit. The minute I turned back on the camera after the repair, it worked. Perfectly. I cried. No joke! Thank you for this amazing counsel and for your willingness to share your knowledge.

Re: shutter release not working S100

Hi amisella
Glad you got a reprieve for your camera. Sadly it will very likely relapse in a few weeks. When it does you will need to order the repair part and make a permanent fix. The repair does not require any knowledge or experience with electronics. The key is taking your time, keeping track of which screw goes in which hole, and a gentle touch with incredibly small and delicate parts. If you can do brain surgery you will have no trouble with this -- and vice versa. Spend the $18. to order the part now, and start reading the posts on various contributor's step-by-step experiences. By the time the Detoxit fix has run its course you will be ready!

Thanks Dan, I just completed the $18 fix, and it works like new.  Wasn't so bad, took about 45 minutes, my eyes were the biggest problem.  Had some difficulty seeing the small screws.

Thank you for the follow-up information and the consideration to let me know. The idea of installing a replacement part seems less daunting after this first repair. I wiil be prepared. Smiley Happy

Re: shutter release not working S100

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.

Re: shutter release not working S100

When I installed my replacement part, it was dead too. I wiggled the front connection down in a tad more, and it made everything work.It must have been a fraction of a millimeter difference.

Re: shutter release not working S100

I tried to contact Canon to see if they say anything. I don't know if they will fix it for free. Will let you know.

Recheck your connections, they are small and difficult.  I used tweezers to make sure they were fully in.  Also make sure the replacement board is in the correct location.  the on-off button may not be making full contact.
