Re: shutter release not working S100

Posts #'s 361 and 400 will be useful preparation. Everything later is about difficulty finding the part, and rants about Canon.

I suggest you contact http://www.hlehmann.co.uk/ (spares@hlehmann.co.uk). They were very willing and sent me the part (cm1-7226-000 foc assy top) outside the UK. It is not difficulty to change the part in your camera.

 

That is faulty part

Re: shutter release not working S100

Hi

 

post 40 an excellent repair procedure which helped me replace the faulty shutter button flexi printed cct assembly  on my S100. Couple of small steps could be added.

Firstly remove battery and memory card. Secondly to avoid potential electrostatic damage to camera electronics, and before starting to dismantle camera, discharge any body static charge by touching  a suitable earth point, eg a metal water pipe.

Hi folkymuso

Good additions. I think you meant to credit post number 400, not 40.

Re: shutter release not working S100

Good points about the battery and memory card.

It's not necessary to touch a water pipe though. As long as you touch the body of the camera when you start you will be in equilibrium with it and that's all that really matters. What you should avoid doing however is getting up and walking away from the camera once you have opened it. The internal electronics are vulnerable in this state and walking even a few steps can recharge your body relative to the camera. If you must, when you return I would recommend first touching the metal plate that shields the memory card. This is externally accessible and should be immune to static discharge.

Re: shutter release not working S100

Just FYI for any Canadians with this problem.  I called Canon Canada today and the replacement part (CM1-7226-000 "FPC ASS'Y TOP") is no longer available.  The CSR said it was discontinued in January 2016.

 

I guess if Canon USA still has it, it could be ordered and shipped to an address for later pickup for those that head down to the States.

The same date, Jan 2016 was when the repair part was not availble in the USA as well.
