Life of a digital camera

I bought a camera Canon Powershot S1,,,,it is 4 years ago.

I tried to take a picture today, impossible, I see nothing in sight except a small glimmer in the corner of the screen. I changed the batteries (just to see), put the memory card in another camera, the card worked well. Is it possible that my camera is "capout?

By against, I can see the pictures that are on the memory card, the unit turns on and off smoothly, the flash is functional.

What is the average lifespan of a digital camera you.

Re: Life of a digital camera

I strongly advise you to approach with CANON you the number to contact and push! not a single entry in an impersonal system!

There were others before you, .. and it seems that this problem is recognized as a manufacturing defect and Canon accepts free repair regardless of warranty!

My father always said: They can tell you two things .. .. NO ... YES OR
