S100: Lens error after 7 months
Jul 15, 2012

Until yesterday, my s100 worked flawlessly! While I use it A LOT, I do treat it with lots of tender loving care. It's never been dropped and has never been exposed to extremes in weather.

I took some photos of my grand daughter yesterday, then shut the camera off. Tried to turn it on again about five minutes later to take some photos of my grandson who walked into the room. Got the black screen with dreaded lens error notice!

The camera shut down and the lens is stuck open.

Calling Canon Monday and sending it in for repair. In the interim, I'll be using my S90 and/or SD 700.

The serial number of my camera (“30xxxxxxxxxx”) falls within the range of a free repair.

SIGH !!!
