How to Troubleshoot Problems With the Canon PowerShot S1 IS

The Canon PowerShot S1 IS, introduced in February 2004, is marketed as a compact camera with a number of diverse features. It has a number of shooting modes, an image stabiliser, super-long zoom, is printer compatible and can take movies. Even with all the features, you can still run into some problems. There are a number of solutions to troubleshoot problems with your Canon PowerShot S1 IS.

Skill level:Easy

Instructions

1 Check to make sure the power is turned on.

2 Make sure the memory card and battery covers are securely closed.

3 Check to make sure you have the right batteries, the batteries are working and the terminals between the battery and camera are clean. You can wipe terminals with a clean, dry cloth to clean them.

1 Check to see what setting the camera is set to shoot. If it is set to playback or computer/printer, move the mode lever to shooting mode.

2 Wait until the flash (a downward, zigzag arrow) is done charging. If the arrow is blinking, the flash is still charging.

3 Check to see if the memory card is full. If it is, either delete pictures or insert a new memory card.

4 Try reformatting the memory card if it is not full. With the card in the camera, turn the camera on. Press the menu button and then the right arrow to get to the set-up menu. Choose format by using the up and down arrows and press the “Set” button.

1 Ensure that you are using the correct type batteries. The Canon PowerShot S1 IS uses AA alkaline batteries or Canon AA NiMH batteries.

2 Keep the batteries warm if you are shooting in a cold place. If batteries are cold, they will drain quicker. Keep them in a pocket until you are ready to use them.

3 Clean the battery terminals with a dry cloth to make sure they are clean.

4 Replace your batteries if you have not used them in more than a year and they are not rechargeable. Rechargeable batteries will normally refresh after a few charging cycles.

1 Hold the camera very still when you take pictures. If you are shooting on a slow shutter speed, use a tripod.

2 Turn the image stabiliser on if you are unable to hold the camera still enough.

3 Make sure that the subject is within the focal range of the camera. Set at least 1.6 feet between the camera lens and whatever you are shooting.

4 Use focus lock if the subject is hard to focus on. Aim the camera at something that is a similar distance from you as the subject you want to shoot. Lock the focus by pressing the shutter button halfway down. Continue to hold it halfway down as you move the camera to the object you plan to shoot, then finish pressing the shutter button.
