I have the same problem with Shutter button. I did shoot in P mod, A mode, M mode. This camera bought in Thanksgiving 2012, then brought to Canon to fix len error in 7 months later for free b/c it still under Warranty. Then it have len error 1 more times, Luckily, it was working again. Now it have problem with Shutter button. Bye Canon.

Has anyone sent theirs multiple times? I've sent mine three times, and now its starting again. They haven't charged me anything, but I had to escalate the repair request to get it taken care of, and they told me this was the last time they would pay. I bought a different brand for work, but dropped and broke it, now having to go back to the S100 as backup. I like this camera, too bad it has the reliability issues that Canon can't come to grips with. May try the $18 repair.

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.
