Re: shutter release not working S100

Hey Ian, so if I'm understanding this correctly, you already gave it a quick "puff" and it was working. Then you left it alone for a few hours and your S100 *wasn't* operational right?

Not until you give it a hard "puff" then it is operational again?

Because this is the exact situation I'm in.

Re: shutter release not working S100

John - would it be something like this?

Fellow S100 owners,

we have found a temporary fix to the "shutter release" problem that many of you have discovered. While we currently do not have a program to enable repairs free of charge, we do have a solution that is. Simply blow into your camera and your S100 will be working like new.

I think whoever will write this if they ever, will have quite a lot of fun.

Re: shutter release not working S100

Let me see if I've got this straight... tronnebonne's driving down the street and this motorcycle cop sees him weaving a tad while he's is blowing on the side of his tiny little camera til his face is red. Is that the picture? He explains he is giving a "BJ' to his Canon. The officer of the law starts laughing so hard he cannot administer a field sobriety test and tronnbonne walks! What ever you do, tronnebonne, do not tell anyone it was my crazy idea! However, over 2 weeks and 753 pictures with NO PROBLEMS! Only one clearing out the S100's sinuses. Life be good!

Correct Tronnebonne: A couple of big puffs fogged up the dead camera, but after it de-fogged it was perfectly operational for a couple days. I tried it again this morning and it would not take photos. I gave it another puff and voila. Working again.

SocalJd - I will SO tell the officer it was your idea. Smiley Happy

Angela: Thanks for confirming. Then **bleep**, maybe only SocalJD lucked out and only had to give the S100 one good puff.

Perhaps I'll have someone else, uh, puff the S100. That may bring, different, results.

Re: shutter release not working S100

Really? Really?! "**bleep**" is the censory word?

For those curious, it was the alternative word to "Darn"
